NEW YORK, April 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GoLogiq, Inc. (OTC:GOLQ), a U.S.-based global provider of fintech and consumer data analytics, provided an update to shareholders who received shares in GoLogiq as the result of GoLogiq’s spin off from Logiq, Inc. (LGIQ) last year and which are currently restricted from sale.
If certain conditions are met, SEC Rule 144 permits the sale of restricted and control securities without the need to comply with the registration or prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act of 1933. If conditions set forth in the rule are met and it is determined that GoLogiq is a mandatory filer with the SEC, then Rule 144 would be available after the one-year anniversary of the company filing on Form 10 certain information that includes the assets acquired in January 2021 from Logiq.
The company believes this required Form 10 information was filed in aggregate through its filing of Form 8-K on January 27, 2022, Form 10-K on April 13, 2022, and Form 10-Q on May 20, 2022, and this thereby establishes May 20, 2023, as the one-year anniversary of such Form 10 information filing.
Currently, the company is not a mandatory filer. The company believes it will become a mandatory filer if and when the registration statement on Form S-3 filed last week is declared effective and it would remain a mandatory filer during the year in which such effectiveness was declared. As part of this process, the company is awaiting SEC comments to the S-3. Alternatively, the company could file a registration statement on Form 8a-12(g) and it would become a mandatory filer 60 days after the filing.
Rule 144 contains many provisions, some of which apply to the company and others that apply to shareholders, with some provisions of Rule 144 considered complicated. The company’s comments about Rule 144 herein reflect its position and belief with respect to applicability of Rule 144; however, GoLogiq encourages those shareholders looking to remove the restrictive legend from their shares to seek advice of legal counsel regarding the availability of Rule 144 for this purpose.
GoLogiq interim CEO, Brent Suen stated: “We very much appreciate the participation and support of all of our shareholders as we’ve worked diligently to add shareholder value over the past year. While Rule 144 technically provides the ability to remove the trading restriction, we recognize it does not guarantee liquidity nor a fair market value for the shares. These are among the important reasons we have taken a two-fold approach to deliver both shareholder value and create a path to more a liquid and favorable market for shareholders.
“To help support liquidity and fair value, we have begun the process of applying to list our stock on a national securities exchange, NYSE American. To deliver greater shareholder value, we have been rigorously pursuing an acquisition strategy with significant success.”
For GoLogiq, this strategy led to the acquisition of GammaRey in March. As reported, GammaRey brought to GoLogiq a profitable business with strong cash flow driven by an estimated $20 million annualized revenue run rate and nearly $800 million in customer financial assets. GammaRey also introduced a pipeline of highly attractive accretive and/or tech-enabling acquisition targets, five of which have now been announced and are in various stages of negotiation and closing.
“By every measure, the shareholder value GammaRey has brought to GoLogiq has been phenomenal,” continued Suen. “Given GammaRey’s recent closing, it will take a process of integration and the next quarter or so of financial reporting for this value to begin to be revealed in real terms.
“But we are confident that we’ve established a company with a solid foundation of assets, both financial and human, and with an exciting growth strategy to be executed over the next year and beyond. We anticipate a listing on NYSE American would bring many benefits to our shareholders, including a whole new world of investors and equity analysts discovering a business that we expect to have approximately $15 billion in customer financial assets under advisement or management, and targeting a top line revenue number exceeding $100 million and profitability. We believe this transformational journey has only just begun to unlock tremendous shareholder value.”
