Sarasota, Florida—March 17, 2017—xG Technology, Inc. (“xG” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: XGTI, XGTIW), a leading provider of wireless video solutions to broadcast, law enforcement and defense markets, and private mobile broadband networks for critical communications, today announced that it has reached an agreement with Pebble Beach Systems (“PBS” or “the Seller” and formerly known as Vislink, plc) for extinguishing the remaining deferred debt from the acquisition of Vislink. All deferred payments due from xG against the original promissory notes covering the acquisition of Vislink are now settled in full, and all liens are released.
The agreement included cash and sharing the proceeds from a customer receivable, among other considerations.
George Schmitt, Executive Chairman and CEO of xG Technology, said, “We are pleased to announce the final settlement of all debt arising from the acquisition of Vislink. We have done this without adding any additional debt to our balance sheet, leaving us in an even better position than we expected when we originally made the acquisition. We want to thank the team at MB Technology Holdings for spearheading the negotiations involved in the acquisition on xG’s behalf, especially in reaching this most recent agreement with the seller. Their ability to bring these very difficult and time-consuming negotiations to a successful conclusion is the key reason we have been able to increase our revenue base almost tenfold.”
Mr. Schmitt continued, “We would also like to thank Pebble Beach Systems for working closely with us to successfully resolve all outstanding issues related to the Business Purchase Agreement. The integration of Vislink with IMT and xG is progressing well and ahead of schedule and expectations. We will be updating the market in the next few business days with further details.”
