DirectView Signs Letter of Intent to Acquire the Business Assets of a Privately Held Texas-Based Security and Surveillance Company
NEW YORK, February 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ —
The target company is well established and profitable in 2016 with unaudited revenues in excess of $5.3 million
DirectView Holdings, Inc. (DIRV) (“DirectView” or the “Company”), a company focused on ownership and management of leading video and security technology companies, today announced that it has entered into a nonbinding letter of intent (LOI) to potentially acquire 100% of the business assets of a Texas based security and surveillance company (the “Target Company”) for a combination of $2 million in cash, debt and stock. DirectView is currently conducting due diligence and has entered into preliminary discussions with several potential funding sources to arrange the financing necessary to facilitate the transaction. The Target Company’s business achieved Non-GAAP unaudited revenues of $5.3 million in 2016 and was operationally profitable.
DirectView believes there are numerous benefits to the potential acquisition including an expanded customer base consisting of many well known local and national companies. In addition to its customer base, the Target Company also maintains a significant web presence that the Company believes is complimentary to and can potentially leverage DirectView’s existing security and surveilence business. The Company believes the addition of these assets will have the potential to result in a significant increase in revenues, improved margins through larger scale and multiple channels for future revenue expansion. DirectView plans to use this potential transaction, if completed, as a model to begin a security and surveilence industry roll up strategy. DirectView can provide no assurances that it will acquire the Target Company or that such acquisition will be integrated into DirectView’s business operations successfully.
Roger Ralston, CEO and Chairman of DirectView, stated, “We are excited to have entered into this LOI and begin the work necessary to complete this important acquisition. We believe there is a significant opportunity to embark on a roll up strategy in the security and survelience industry and we see this potential acquisition as an important first step forward for Directview in acheiving that long term goal. We look forward to reaching a definitive agreement to add the experienced management and financial strength that comes with this acquisition, as we work to build significant long term value for our shareholders.”
