ICOA and Tango Software Corp. unwind acquisition


WARWICK, R.I., Oct. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ICOA, Inc. (OTCPK: ICOA) today announced that by mutual agreement between the parties, ICOA's acquisition of a majority interest in Tango Software Corporation announced in July has been unwound effective immediately.   

Due to ICOA's inability at this time to raise the necessary development funds required to complete development of the Payment Processing Gateway, the parties felt it was in the best interest of both companies to terminate their relationship so as not to impact contracts that were already in place with Tango.

"It is unfortunate that market conditions at this time have prohibited us from fulfilling our end of the agreement," stated Erwin Vahlsing, Jr. CFO, "however, the two companies will continue to collaborate on various smaller projects, in hopes that conditions will change and permit a greater future relationship."
