REGINA, SK, Feb. 1, 2021 /CNW/ – Input Capital Corp. (TSX Venture: INP) (US: INPCF) (“Input” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has completed the acquisition (the “Acquisition“) of all of the common shares (“SRG Shares“) of SRG Security Resource Group Inc. (“SRG“) on the terms and subject to the conditions set out in the Share Purchase Agreement (“Purchase Agreement“).
“We plan to put our very strong balance sheet to work backing the growth of SRG in the cyber and physical security business in Canada,” said President & CEO Doug Emsley. “SRG is a well-established and profitable business with an experienced management team, and we look forward to enabling the growth of SRG organically and via acquisition in the months and years to come.”
Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, Input acquired all the SRG Shares for a total purchase price of approximately C$19,900,000 (the “Purchase Price“), as adjusted on a dollar-for-dollar basis for positive or negative net working capital of SRG. Half of the Purchase Price was satisfied by the issuance of 8,883,930 common shares of Input (“Input Shares“) at a deemed value of C$1.12 per Input Share for an approximate total value of C$9,950,000. The remaining 50% of the Purchase Price was paid in cash. The full text of the Purchase Agreement may be found under Input’s issuer profile at www.sedar.com.
The new Input Shares issued to SRG shareholders pursuant to the Acquisition are subject to a statutory hold period expiring 4 months and 1 day from the date of issuance. In addition, the SRG shareholders have agreed to lock-up terms in favour of the Company restricting their ability to transfer their Input Shares until the date that is 6 months following the closing of the Acquisition.
As previously announced, Input will continue to operate its existing agriculture operations in order to serve many farm clients who have 2-3 years left on their streaming contracts. With canola prices nearing all-time highs, Input believes that it has an excellent opportunity to maximize the value of its assets as the Company repatriates capital from the agriculture sector over the remaining life of these contracts. This will grow Input’s already excellent financial capacity to back SRG’s anticipated growth strategy in the security sector.
Input is primarily an agriculture commodity streaming company providing several flexible and competitive forms of financing which help western Canadian farmers solve working capital, mortgage finance and canola marketing challenges and improve the financial position of their farms. On February 1, 2021, Input acquired SRG Security Resource Group Inc. as a platform for growth in the cyber and physical security business in Canada.
