GlobeNewswire — iLOOKABOUT Corp. (TSXV:ILA; OTCQB:ILATF) (“ILA” or “the Company”) further to its news release issued on January 15th, 2021 and January 22nd, 2021, the Company is pleased to announce it has executed the definitive agreements and closed the acquisition of 100% of the issued and outstanding stock of; (i) Voxtur Technologies, Inc. (“Voxtur Technologies”); (ii) 100% of the membership interests of Bright Line Title, LLC (“Brightline Title”), and (iii) certain technology and non-legal assets of James E. Albertelli, P.A. and certain of its affiliates (collectively, “JEA”) (the “Acquisition”).
In addition to closing the Acquisition, the Company has received all requisite approvals and has changed its name from “iLOOKABOUT Corp.” to “Voxtur Analytics Corp.” The Company is expected to begin trading under “Voxtur Analytics Corp.” on the TSX Venture Exchange at the opening of markets on February 5th, 2021 under the new ticker symbol “VXTR”. No action will be required by existing shareholders with respect to the name change. Issued share certificates representing common shares of the Company will not be affected by the change of name and will not need to be exchanged. Complete marketing materials and rebranding efforts will continue to transition over the next few months.
ʺWith this acquisition, the Company will be in a position to deliver a valuable suite of products and services to the real estate sector offering a breadth of insight, understanding and analytics distinctive in today’s marketplace. By combining both sets of assets, we are now able to touch many functions in the real estate value chain and, as a result, we are able to move the vision forward for a more efficient real estate transaction, increasing value for all,” said Gary Yeoman, Chair and Chief Executive Officer of the Company. “In addition to the near‐term revenue benefits anticipated with the addition of Voxtur’s and Brightline’s significant client base, this transaction is aligned with our previous investments in technology and the accumulation of proprietary industry data creating a resilient and dynamic growth platform.”
The combination of assets allows the Company to integrate its proprietary data, analytics, and technologically enhanced services to reduce the costs caused by imperfect information.
“Bringing both groups together allows us to differentiate ourselves by being able to offer a unique set of complementary services in real estate valuation, property tax, title insurance and default services. As we harness the data within each of our offerings and incorporate our machine learning and artificial intelligence expertise into these products, we are able to provide differentiated value to consumers and lenders alike,” said Jim Albertelli, founder of JEA and now President of the Company. “We are excited to join forces with Gary and build upon his successful track record. Both management teams have already come together and are fully aligned with the Company’s emphasis on growth and value creation with the long-term vision of creating a fully digitized view of a real estate asset.”
In conjunction with the Acquisition, ILA is delighted to expand its existing credit facilities with Bank of Montreal’s (“BMO”) Technology & Innovation Banking Group for an additional approximate amount of $23.5 million (the “Term Loan”), as previously announced in a news release issued by the Company January 15, 2021. The Term Loan contains customary financial and restrictive covenants, and are secured by assets of ILA and its subsidiaries, which primarily consists of intellectual property and accounts receivable. The proceeds of the Term Loan will be used for costs associated with the Acquisition, other strategic initiatives and general corporate and working capital purposes.
“We are appreciative of BMO’s ongoing support, which has allowed us to execute on this transformation and strategic acquisition. Besides growing our marketshare, the acquisition will also allow us to add new products and offerings to our platform in the future,” continued Mr. Yeoman.
