Newport Beach, Calif., May 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — DPW Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: DPW) (“DPW” or the “Company”), a diversified holding company, announced today that one of the Company’s subsidiaries, Coolisys Technologies, Inc., a technology-centric company dedicated to servicing the defense and aerospace sectors as well as industrial and medical sector businesses worldwide has completed the acquisition of Enertec Systems 2001 Ltd. (“Enertec”), a 22 year-old private company, Israel’s largest private developer and manufacturer of specialized electronic systems for the aerospace and defense markets. Enertec generated over $8 million in annual revenue for its fiscal year ended December 31, 2017.
Enertec is recognized for providing multi-purpose turnkey systems designed to serve in harsh environments and battlefield conditions. Applications and products include mission computers, missiles launchers, command and control systems, automatic testing systems and power supply systems. Products and solutions are implemented in land and naval combat electronic systems, command and control centers, simulators and missiles systems. Enertec also provides precise calibrated solutions for medical OEMs. The acquisition of Enertec expands Coolisys’ advanced technology development as well as its manufacturing footprint and increases Coolisys’ capabilities with the addition of over 70 skilled employees, most of whom are engineers with proven military experience. Enertec was a subsidiary of Micronet Enertec Technologies, Inc., an entity until recently listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market (“MICT”).
Commenting on the transaction, Coolisys’ President and CEO Amos Kohn stated, “The purchase of Enertec marks a major step in continuing to execute our acquisition growth strategy in 2018. We are very pleased that, through this strategic acquisition, we will realize an increase in our sales revenues, an expansion of our customer base, and Coolisys will benefit from Enertec’s innovative technology. Additionally, Coolisys will increase its technological and manufacturing capabilities, thereby positioning itself as an advanced aerospace and defense technology supplier for major strategic defense programs. Further, Enertec may provide synergistic opportunities that Coolisys may leverage through its worldwide divisions and affiliated entities. We strongly believe that the acquisition of Enertec will also invigorate Coolisys’ endeavors in the growing medical and commercial electronics sectors in both international and domestic markets.” Mr. Kohn added, “Coolisys, with Enertec’s assistance, will target the U.S. Department of Defense’s Foreign Military Sales (FMS) and Military Financing (FMF) programs as well as expand its sales by offering its new product and services portfolios to other global defense markets such as India, members of NATO, other countries and agencies.”
Coolisys paid to the seller $4,772,520 in cash and assumed $4,288,439 revolving debt of Enertec to certain banks. Concurrently with the closing of the transaction, Coolisys made certain cash payments to reduce the revolving credit lines to Enertec from certain banks and to support Enertec’s longer-term manufacturing contracts.
