The acquiring management/investment team already holds
equity ownership in the operating businesses and is simply seeking additional
financing to complete the merger/acquisition. The management and advisory board
are experienced operators and financiers. They have purchased and operated
numerous companies in the past, all with their own investment funds. This is the first
time the acquiring management has sought outside financing for an acquisition.

equity, the $54.5M raised will be used to merge the companies into a single corporate
structure and buyout the existing majority shareholders. The total valuation of the
merged company will equal $93M+ at a Loan-to-Value (LTV) ratio of ~41% +/-.
Currently, the company does not hold any meaningful debt on its balance sheet.
