Rye, New York – August 28, 2014 – LICT Corporation (OTC Pink®: LICT) (“LICT” or the “Company”) announced today that it has received an unsolicited, preliminary and non-binding proposal from an unaffiliated third party to acquire the Company. As with an earlier unsolicited proposal which LICT disclosed on February 19, 2014, the current proposal represents a significant premium to LICT’s recent trading price. In addition, the proposed price is closer to the prevailing financial and marketplace dynamics in LICT’s industry than the previous proposal. However, the proposal is also subject to a number of contingencies.
As we noted in disclosing the February acquisition proposal, LICT’s main focus continues to be on growing the value of our businesses. The Company’s Board of Directors will nonetheless carefully analyze and assess any proposals. On that basis, the Board will reach a final determination as to whether the proposed price adequately reflects the private market value of LICT and would deliver full value to our stockholders.
If the Board concludes that the current proposal is “too tentative”, there can be no assurance that any revised proposal would be made or that, if made, a revised proposal would be adequate. The Company does not undertake any obligation to provide any updates with respect to this or any other potential transaction, except as required under applicable law.
