LAS VEGAS, Oct. 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inova Technology (OTCQB:INVA) announced that it has sold its RFID businesses, Trakkers and RightTag, to Xumanii International Holdings Corp ("Xumanii") (OTCQB:XUII) for 2 million preferred shares of Xumanii. The purpose of the transaction is to unlock value by breaking up Inova into two segments where the RFID business and network solutions business can pursue their own respective business plans separately. The effective date of the transaction is October 1, 2013.
Inova CEO, Adam Radly, said, "Inova reported annual revenue of $18 million for our most recent fiscal year yet our market capitalization is only in the hundreds of thousands. It's likely that our debt is one reason for the low market cap. It's also possible that the market doesn't like the combination of network solutions and RFID in one company. Some investors have indicated that they like RFID and don't like network solutions while others take the opposite view. As a result, we decided to break Inova into two parts so that the network solutions business and RFID business can pursue their own business plans without being constrained by the other and also to enable shareholders to choose to invest in one or the other or both as opposed to being forced to invest in both."
The sale of assets includes the following:
- Trakkers LLC along with all of the intellectual property associated with its current and future products and solutions.
- The business and assets of Right Tag, Inc.
- Trakkers LLC has approximately $4 million of debt that will remain with Trakkers LLC.
- All of the assets that were sold in this transaction were sold by Tesselon LLC (a subsidiary of Inova)
Inova CEO, Adam Radly, said, "We sold Trakkers for $2 million. Even though Trakkers only represents approximately 6% of Inova's revenue the $2 million sale price is more than 5 times Inova's entire market cap so we are obviously very happy with the transaction. The transaction will also help both Inova and Trakkers to restructure its debt."
When considering the $2 million valuation of Trakkers for the purpose of this transaction management considered the following factors:
- Revenue for Trakkers for the fiscal year ending April 2013 and 2012 was $1,573,473 and $1,200,142 respectively. Adjusted EBITDA for the fiscal year ending April 2013 and 2012 was $383,110 and $228,270 respectively.
- Trakkers LLC has approximately $4 million of debt and will remain with Trakkers LLC.
- The market capitalization of Inova is approximately $400,000
In addition to the $2 million of preferred stock of Xumanii, the transaction also includes a commitment from Xumanii to file an S1 registration Statement that, upon being deemed effective by the SEC, will allow Inova shareholders to acquire one Xumanii share for each Inova share that they owned as at the Effective Date (October 1, 2013). However, shareholders should be aware that there can be no assurance that the SEC will deem the S1 Registration Statement effective.
Xumanii provides live concert streaming using its own proprietary solution. Xumanii had previously announced that it has filed for patent relating to this technology. Trakkers currently generates the majority of its revenue from the rental of scanners to trade shows and has been actively developing other complementary solutions for trade shows including trade show apps for mobile devices. There is a demand for live event streaming at many trade shows and Trakkers will be able to offer the Xumanii streaming solution to trade shows as an additional service. Following the acquisition of Trakkers by Xumanii, Xumanii plans to pursue the development of a mobile solutions business that will include the use of RFID in mobile solutions for asset tracking among other mobile solutions.
Upon completion of the transaction Mr. Adam Radly will temporarily hold the position of CEO of both Inova and Xumanii concurrently while the board and senior management of Xumanii are adjusted to reflect its new business plan.
