READ: Velpic secures better offer for the sale of its customer book and intellectual property

Velpic recently received an offer from Damstra Technology Pty Ltd to purchase its customer contracts in a deal valued at about $3.8 million.

This offer was superior to that of Go1 Pty Ltd and resulted in the agreement with Go1 being terminated as it was not willing to match the Damstra offer.

Deal valued at about $3.8 million

Damstra’s offer provides for a payment of $1 million up-front, with additional deferred consideration of about $2.8 million.

As well as the Velpic customer book, Damstra will also acquire all Velpic platform intellectual property, seeking to sub-let Velpic’s Subiaco premises and acquiring the Velpic business name.

At the time, Velpic said it would continue to actively seek new investment opportunities, and also seek out opportunities for the sale of its other divisions and investments.
