LICT Corporation (the “Corporation”; OTC Pink®: LICT) is announcing that its Board of Directors (the “Board”) has initiated a strategic review to accelerate and broaden the development of the Corporation’s businesses. At a special meeting held on April 23, 2021, the Board directed the consideration and analysis of a full range of measures to unlock current and enhance and surface shareholder value.
The actions to be explored will include, among others, the possible creation of a Special Purpose Acquisition Corporation (“SPAC”); the spin-off of one or more of the Corporation’s subsidiaries as a separate entity; potential strategic and accretive acquisitions in the Corporation’s current or adjacent industries; and the possibility of raising long term debt.
A SPAC gives the Corporation flexibility to seek out and fund transactions in its existing or related businesses or expand into new areas.
In addition, Shareholders have benefited through spin-offs. CIBL, Inc., spun off in 2007, initially traded beginning in 2008 at around $200 per share; it has recently traded as high as $1,800 per share. Likewise, ICTC Group, Inc., spun off in 2010, initially traded at around $15 per share and was acquired in 2018 for $65 per share. Indeed, LICT was itself a spin-off from Lynch Corporation and started at $2,500 per share. LICT is analyzing its current portfolio of companies to determine whether our shareholders might benefit from another such spin-off.
In sum, at the Board’s affirmative direction, the Corporation will systematically seek, analyze, and evaluate a full range of means to expand the scope and scale of its businesses, to accelerate growth across all of them, and thereby to enhance and surface our shareholders’ value.
