Autoclenz has agreed to sell its operating companies for four million pounds to a company controlled by its existing Chief Executive and Financial Director and external investors.
The existing company will become a cash shell with £3m in cash and £1m loan note, that will be repaid with interest within three years. The total consideration equates to approximately 38.5p a share.
In effect Autoclenz will then become an investing company. James Leek, Non-Executive Chairman, Autoclenz, commented: "Together with our advisors we shall now seek to acquire within this well-funded, clean Aim-listed shell company a high growth business with a view to further increasing shareholder value."
