Combination with German Technology Company Enables Spectrum to Continue its Previously Announced Business Plan
LONGWOOD, FL, July 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Spectrum Global Solutions, Inc. (the "Company" or "Spectrum") (OTCQB: SGSI), a single-source provider of next-generation communications network and professional services to telecommunications and enterprise markets, announces today the Company’s entry into a definitive agreement of acquisition (the “Agreement”) with WaveTech GmbH. (“WT GmbH”). WT GmbH is a German based Company with a technology platform that provides efficient and reliable energy infrastructure for telecommunication networks, data centers and Fortune 1000 clients.
This new Agreement enables Spectrum to combine directly with WT GmbH and take advantage of that company’s extensive platform of patented products that makes energy supply more cost-efficient, reliable and eco-friendly. WT GmbH’s patented approach, Crystal Control Technology (CCT®), dramatically reduces the need for backup energy capital expenditure and associated operating costs for the environmental control and maintenance needed to protect and operate these critical energy assets.
Roger Ponder, CEO of Spectrum stated, “We always believed that the combination with WT GmbH presented a unique growth opportunity for the Company, an expansion into new international markets and an opportunity to provide tangible value to our shareholders. This new acquisition Agreement does just that with what we believe is a better valuation for our existing assets. We are certainly looking forward to working with WT GmbH’s management team and clients”.
Roger Ponder continued: “With WT GmbH’s business, including its extensive array of patents and products, the consolidated entity will have an agreed upon value of approximately $120 million. The acquisition shall be effected through a sale and exchange of shares plus cash provided to Spectrum.
Dag Valand, CEO & Founder of WaveTech GmbH stated, “We are excited to join forces with Spectrum. In the last year we have been transitioning from a German based company that provided a unique battery life extension product into an innovative global technology company. We have established a solid platform for commercialization of our CCT® product line with leading global partners and we have a solid pipeline of additional opportunities. This transaction allows us to deliver to our shareholders and the shareholders of Spectrum increased value, capabilities and expanded market presence for which to capitalize on."
Silas Poel, COO of WaveTech GmbH, stated: "We saw great interest in our products over the last few months from major telecommunications operators all over the globe and the transaction with Spectrum will help us to accelerate our growth. Spectrum has great expertise in this field and a very talented team. We are looking forward to this new chapter in our company and are excited about our common future."
