Newport Beach, Calif., Feb. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DPW Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: DPW), a diversified holding company (“DPW,” or the “Company”), announced on January 2, 2020 that its wholly owned subsidiary, DPW Financial Group, Inc. (“DPWF”), had entered into an agreement to acquire two broker-dealers, consisting of Glendale Securities, Inc. (“GSI”), a retail broker-dealer, and its correspondent clearing broker dealer (collectively, the “Firms”).
DPW also announced that the closing of the agreement was subject to customary conditions, including regulatory clearance, which consisted principally of approval by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (“FINRA”). On January 8, 2020, the Company announced that on January 7, 2020, the Firms had held a telephonic meeting with representatives of FINRA and that they were informed that the proposed transaction would not be approved in its then contemplated form. As a result, the Firms had withdrawn their respective applications seeking FINRA’s approval of the agreement.
The Company reviewed the information it was provided by GSI and, after evaluating its options with respect to the agreement, decided to terminate the agreement and not pursue the acquisition of the Firms.
DPW’s CEO and Chairman, Milton “Todd” Ault, III said, “While we are disappointed that the previously announced acquisition will not be completed, our recently announced $7.7 million exchange agreement improves our capital structure and enables management to focus on the many other opportunities we have to grow our business. We are committed to providing financial resources to enable our existing businesses to expand.”
