Aix-en-Provence, France, January 25, 2019 – Inside Secure (Euronext Paris: INSD), at the heart of security solutions for mobile and connected devices, today announced having executed the acquisition agreement for the acquisition of Verimatrix (the “Acquisition”).

 

The execution of an exclusivity agreement to acquire Verimatrix, a global independent leading software security provider for video services (“Verimatrix”), had been announced by Inside Secure (the “Company”) on December 5, 2018.

 

Amedeo D’Angelo, chairman and CEO of Inside Secure, declared: “We are looking forward to combine our two businesses focused on the Cloud Security in order to continue creating value for our shareholders.”

 

The acquisition of Verimatrix will be fully funded through two fully-underwritten equity transactions, namely a rights issue of approximately EUR 22.5 million with preferential subscription rights to existing shareholders and the issuance of bonds redeemable into new shares reserved to One Equity Partners (OEP) for a nominal amount of €30 million, and will be supplemented by the use of a part of Inside Secure’s available cash for approximately $38 million (excluding the cost and charges resulting from the Acquisition) and the proceeds of a private debt subscribed by Apera Capital, a private debt manager, for approximately $55 million, depending of the estimated earn-out of the Acquisition and for which an agreement was executed on January 22, 2019.

 

The closing of the Acquisition is scheduled for February 2019, subject to the completion of the conditions precedents related to the acquisition agreement and upon completion by Inside Secure of the rights issue.
