SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/12/13 -- The Board of Directors of VisualVault Corporation (CNSX: VVT) (the "Company") wishes to announce several material corporate developments.
With the appointment of John Shackleton to the Board of Directors as Chairman, the Company has defined its broader long-term vision: build a large software as a service (SaaS) business process management (BPM) software company through both organic and acquisitive growth. While acquiring the VisualVault service platform from Auersoft LLC or a similar platform remains a key initiative, the strategy of the Company is to build and sell specific, use-case, BPM-solution applications. The Company's organic growth opportunities are numerous and, for that reason, an initial focus on the most attractive opportunities is key. Management and the Board have agreed that certain defined segments of the United States healthcare market represent recurring revenue opportunities with the potential to drive projected annual revenues in excess of $66,000,000 within three years.
The Company has also more clearly defined its acquisition strategy. Acquisitions will come in three forms: 1) domain expertise software companies with good customers, 2) stranded BPM software companies, and 3) BPM companies with unique solutions. All of these acquisition targets have valuable recurring revenues that will incrementally grow as the Company offers its platform to their established customer base. The Company has identified selected acquisitions that complement its focus on healthcare.
The Company previously announced a $9,600,000 financing consisting of 32,000,000 pre-consolidated units of the Company's securities, each unit consisting of one common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant is exercisable for a period of two years from the closing of the private placement at a price of $.35 per consolidated share. The Company also announced a first closing of the private placement for gross proceeds of $1,400,000, to be used for general business development and working capital. The Company will use the balance of the funding to identify one or more acquisitions referred to above, thus using available resources in the most accretive manner possible for near-term revenue generation.
In light of the expanded business model noted above, the Company's management and Board have elected to change the name of the Company to reflect a broader scope, direction, and branding of the business. Shareholders will be asked to approve a change of name at the next annual general meeting scheduled for August 31, 2013. Management is in the process of selecting a new name and brand for the business.
The Company's most recent extension to complete the purchase of substantially all the assets of Auersoft LLC expired on July 1, 2013. Insofar as the Company did not close the purchase by July 1, 2013, the agreement expired by its terms. It is the Company's intention to close an asset acquisition concurrently with the closing of the above-noted private placement.
The Company, separate from its wholly-owned subsidiary, VisualVault Technologies Inc., was granted a Trademark License Agreement to use the VisualVault trademarks on a worldwide, perpetual, royalty free basis. Insofar as the Company intends to establish its own brand and change its name to reflect same, the VisualVault trademark and logo for business development purposes will no longer be used. In addition the Company and VisualVault Technologies Inc. will no longer use Auersoft's VisualVault trademarks and trade name.
Brent Bollong, President of Auersoft LLC and a director of the Company, will continue to serve as a director of the Company and the Board welcomes his continued support and service.
Van Potter, CEO of the Company commented, "This rebranding supports the Company's expanded vision for organic and acquisitive growth, and when financing is complete it facilitates our acquisition strategy in the BPM space."
