Disposal Of Non-Core Assets For $3M In Cash​

Disposal Of Non-Strategic Modular Business Assets To Focus On Next Phase Of Growth.

DC Two Limited (ASX: DC2) (“DC Two” or the “Company”), a vertically integrated revenue generating data centre, cloud, and software business, is pleased to announce it has signed a binding agreement to dispose of its non-core infrastructure assets for a total consideration of $3 million in cash.


The agreement was executed with D Comm Infrastructure Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of D Comm Ventures Pty Ltd, a leading Web 3.0 technology company (DComm) (Agreement).

Highlights:

  • Proposed divestment of DC Modular business assets to DComm to generate $3 million in cash (before costs).
  • DComm is a leading web 3.0 technology and infrastructure company.
  • Focus on next phase of growth to build a unique technology offering within the cloud microservices sector around the Company’s core assets and service offerings.
  • Following completion, the Company will accelerate its growth plans from a position of financial strength.
  • Agreement subject to conditions precedent.
  • On 30 December 2022, the Company announced the proposed acquisition of leading managed IT and cloud services provider, Attained.
  • Attained has demonstrated its ability to generate an average of ~$3 million in unaudited revenue during the last 3 years.
  • Attained acquisition progressing well and expected to close by the end of March 2023.
  • Via these two transactions, the Company expects to drive further growth by leveraging its IT infrastructure foundations built over the last three years, from a position of financial strength.

Overview:

During fiscal 2023, the Company has been focussing on its next phase of growth, with a view of building a unique technology offering within the cloud microservices sector by leveraging its data centre and cloud hosted services. These initiatives have included the assessment of the strategic alignment of its divisions (ASX: 31 January 2023).

Aligned with this overarching rationale, the Company has identified the modular infrastructure assets (Modular Assets) as non-strategic towards its tech-focussed growth objectives.

Therefore, the Company has executed a binding agreement to dispose of its Modular Assets to a subsidiary of leading Web 3.0 technology company, DComm, for a total consideration of $3 million in cash. The completion of this transaction is subject to the conditions precedent included in the Annexure to this Announcement.

DComm is a leading web 3.0 technology group of companies in the blockchain industry in Australia and internationally and has investment over $2 million in the current FY23 alone to build a cutting-edge layer 1 blockchain protocol for the "Tokenisation of Assets". DComm’s Infrastructure division has a pipeline of $3.5 million renewable energy projects in Western Australia. Brett Endersby, CEO of DComm Infrastructure Pty Ltd , said “The purchase of DC Two’s modular data centre business is a strategic acquisition which will allow DComm to expand the data centres to this pipeline of renewable energy projects”.

As part of the disposal, the Company will also transfer to DComm its non-strategic Modular customer agreements and contracts which contributed $1,173,828 revenue for the December 2022 half year period. This includes the customer agreement with AusMT Energy Pty Ltd (AusMT), as announced on 23 June 2022. To date the AusMT agreement has produced lower than expected revenues and the Company has been in ongoing discussions with AusMT with regards to the performance under the agreement.

Subject to completion of this transaction, the Company will receive cash consideration in the amount of $3 million (before costs), enabling a strong acceleration of its growth objectives within the cloud microservices sector, including the assessment of several M&A growth opportunities. Funds from the sale will be applied towards items including sales and marketing, technical product and service development, technical staff salaries and other staffing costs, the paydown of debt secured against the Modular Assets and general working capital.

On 30 December 2022, the Company announced the proposed acquisition of leading cloud provider, Attained. Over the last three years, Attained has demonstrated its ability to generate an average of ~$3 million in unaudited revenue.

The acquisition of Attained was the first acquisition for the Company, covering several technology layers, deemed critical to build an end-to-end market offering around the Company’s core assets and service offerings. These include, among others:

  • Cyber Security.
  • Professional Managed IT services.
  • Cloud services.
  • Network and Voice solutions.

Furthermore, Attained will enable the Company to expand its commercial footprint within Australia and other expanding markets it operates in, with a number of ASX listed and private clients who operate across Australia, UK, Asia and Europe.

5 Biggest ASX Technology ETFs in 2024

It's indisputable that we're in an era of technology and our technological capabilities are exponentially increasing.

If you aren't reading this on a personal computer or laptop — unthinkable in 1970 — you're probably using a smartphone, and phones that can access the internet have only been around since 1996. For a further example, Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) meteoric rise is just as well known and needs no elaboration. The fact of the matter is that technology is integral to our life and advancements in the industry are shaping the future.

For any investor, the tech sector may be a desirable investment opportunity, and ETFs can be a safer way to get into an industry. For those unfamiliar, an ETF, or exchange-traded fund, is a basket of securities that is traded like a stock on an exchange and comes in many different types — market ETFs, foreign market ETFs, commodity ETFs and so on. Advantages include lower expense ratios, diversification and fewer broker commissions. One disadvantage is a low level of liquidity.
