January 2016's OTC Graduates' M&A Activity.
February 9, 2016
Three issuers graduated from the OTC Markets in January 2016. They all jumped to the NASDAQ and they all completed at least one acquisition prior to uplisting. Acquisitions played a pivotal role in all three issuers' ability to uplist. Below are short summaries of each graduates' business and M&A record.
(1) Workhorse Group Inc. "manufactures electric drive systems for medium-duty...commercial truck platforms" and is also developing drone delivery systems.
(3) SPI Energy Co., Ltd. is a solar company that "focuses on the downstream PV market including the development, financing, installation, operation and sale of utility-scale and residential solar power projects in China, Japan, Europe and North America." SPI Energy Co. also operates "an innovative online energy e-commerce and investment platform" and "a B2B e-commerce platform offering a range of PV products for both upstream and downstream suppliers and customers".
In 2015, SPIclosed four acquisitions and added nearly one dozen additional targets to their acquisition pipeline.
While acquisitions played a very large role in the growth strategy of SELF and SPI, even WKHS completed one (or two if you include the reverse merger) transformational acquisition prior to joining the NASDAQ.
Historically, many- but not all- OTC graduates have grow through acquisitions. So far, 3 of 3 2016 OTC graduates grew through acquisitions. If you run a micro-cap public company, will you be the next OTC issuer to uplist after growing through acquisitions?
