IRVING, Texas, Aug. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Exela Technologies, Inc. (“Exela” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: XELA, XELAP), a business process automation (“BPA”) leader, announced today that one of its subsidiaries entered into an exclusive non-binding letter of intent (“LOI”) to form a stand-alone publicly listed company of its EMEA business, which has approximately $200 million in annual revenue. The news follows the June 6 announcement in which Exela declared its intention to sell in excess of $200 million of assets.
The equity consideration of Exela’s stake in the proposed transaction is valued at $220 million. The cash to be injected into the EMEA business from the proposed transaction would be used for growth and general corporate purposes by the new, stand-alone Nasdaq listed European business.
Completion of the transaction is subject to the negotiation of a definitive agreement providing for the transaction, satisfaction of the conditions negotiated therein, including regulatory and other approvals. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that a definitive agreement will be entered into or that the proposed transaction will be consummated. Readers are cautioned that those portions of the LOI that describe the proposed transaction, included the consideration to be issued therein, are non-binding. Exela only intends to announce additional details regarding the proposed transaction if and when a definitive agreement is executed.
