AVCtechnologies Announces Filing of Resale Registration Statement as Part of Funding Plan

American Virtual Cloud Technologies announced that it has filed a resale registration statement on Form S-3 as part of several initiatives to raise growth capital and improve liquidity through an increased share float. Pursuant to its recent S-3 filing, AVCtechnologies has completed the registration of 37,916,668 shares which underlie warrants that were previously issued in accordance with previously announced financing transactions. These financings are a critical step in the company’s fundraising plan and will enable it to execute on its strategic growth initiatives such as the recently announced partnerships with Braidio and Etisalat.

If all the warrants issued in the previously announced financing transactions are exercised, AVCtechnologies would receive approximately $41 million in incremental cash on its balance sheet, based on the warrant exercise prices, which currently range from $1.50 to $2.00 per share. To date, the Company has already raised approximately $35 million from the previously announced financing transactions. Full exercise of these warrants would also increase the public float of AVCtechnologies stock by nearly 19 million shares, as only half of the registered shares will actually be issued absent any adjustments to the terms of the warrants. The resale registration statements filed in connection with the financing transactions have registered 200% of the number of shares currently issuable upon exercise of the warrants, to comply with obligations under the transaction documents to “over-register” shares to provide for potential repricing of warrant strike prices without the need for additional registration statement filings. No dilution will occur from any non-issued registered shares.

With the latest S-3 filing, Phase I of our funding plan is complete and the Company will benefit from increased liquidity in the marketplace to the extent the remaining warrants are exercised. We are now in position to execute on Phase 2 of our funding strategy, the planned divestiture of Computex Technology Group, the proceeds from which, coupled with the Phase 1 proceeds, are expected to completely eliminate the Company’s debt and fully fund our plan.”

Larry Mock, Chairman of the Board of AVCtechnologies

Darrell J. Mays, CEO of AVCtechnologies, said, “Any additional capital received from the sale of these securities will be beneficial as we continue to expand our product offerings and accelerate our existing growth strategies with large enterprise customers.” AVCtechnologies previously announced that revenues of its Kandy Business Unit are projected to grow from $14.3 million in 2020 to approximately $18.8 million in 2021 and to more than $37 million in 2022.

SonicWall Accelerates SASE Offerings; Acquires Proven Cloud Security Provider

PR Newswire | January 03, 2024

SonicWall, a global cybersecurity leader, today announced the acquisition of Banyan Security, a leading provider of security service edge (SSE) solutions for the modern workforce. This acquisition strengthens SonicWall's portfolio by adding zero trust security relied on by leading fortune 100 companies to small businesses who are replacing legacy architectures for SSE solutions, including Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA). "Cybersecurity's focus is shifting to more dynamic solutions that can adapt to the ever-evolving landscape of threats in the cloud age," said SonicWall President and CEO Bob Vankirk. "For years, firewalls have been the cornerstone of cybersecurity defenses. However, with the rise of cloud computing and secure access service edge (SASE), the industry is shifting its focus to more comprehensive and flexible approaches that include SSE and ZTNA as a necessity. Together, SonicWall and Banyan Security will provide cloud-based secure access service edge (SASE) solutions that empower partners to deliver a security architecture for any stage of their customers' evolving cloud journey." Banyan's technology further extends SonicWall's portfolio to the cloud and provides partners and their customers with more flexibility, which is key to the continued development of SonicWall's cybersecurity platform. The acquisition aligns with SonicWall's "best of suite" strategy — which includes network, endpoint, wireless, cloud email, and threat intelligence — under a single, multi-tenant portal. The platform also simplifies workflows and offers unified threat visibility, enabling service providers and end users to focus on what truly matters. "For decades, SonicWall has played a pivotal role in supporting their partners by delivering leading cybersecurity solutions," said Joshua Skeens, CEO of Logically, a valued SonicWall partner. "They're now extending that to the cloud as the demand for cloud-first strategies is evident. As businesses embark on their cloud journey, they will require hybrid deployments which SonicWall is ideally positioned to provide, and we are excited to be working alongside SonicWall as we empower businesses to thrive in this new era." With hybrid and remote employees working from their homes, virtual offices, and coffee shops, while accessing critical business applications across increasingly complex networks, a new set of challenges has emerged. To secure this ever-growing and interconnected access surface, organizations have been driven to adopt zero trust models to modernize security, often as a replacement for legacy architectures. The announcement comes on the heels of SonicWall's acquisition of Solutions Granted, Inc. (SGI), which helped arm the channel with the latest managed detection and response services tailor-made for Managed Service Providers and Managed Security Service Providers. About SonicWall SonicWall is a cybersecurity forerunner with more than 30 years of expertise and is recognized as a leading partner-first company. With the ability to build, scale and manage security across the cloud, hybrid and traditional environments in real-time, SonicWall provides seamless protection against the most evasive cyberattacks across endless exposure points for increasingly remote, mobile and cloud-enabled users.
