AUGUSTA INDUSTRIES (AAO:TSXV) LOCK-UP AGREEMENT IS A WINNING STRATEGY

On September 29, 2016, Major Shareholders and Directors of dynaCERT announced a Lock-Up of more than 55,000,000 shares for 180 days, representing ~ 23% of the Company’s shares.  The purpose of the Lock-Up was stated as follows:

“Given the significant progress that has been achieved in recent months, we felt a Voluntary Lock-Up Agreement would demonstrate to shareholders and potential investors the commitment and confidence that management, directors and certain major shareholders have in the future of dynaCERT.”

The Company proceeded to make significant progress and its stock achieved the following performance over the next 12 months.

 

 

Augusta Industries Announces Lock-Up Agreement

On November 9th, Augusta Industries announced a Lock-Up Agreement for Directors and Officers holding 83.4 Million shares, representing 32% of the Company’s outstanding share amount.  One major term of the Agreement is the agreement to vote the shares in support of the Augusta Spin-Off of Fox-Tek Canada Inc.

Allen Lone, President and CEO of Augusta stated:

“The company continues to work with its advisers to ensure the success of the proposed spinoff of Fox-Tek and to ensure that it is done it a manner that is beneficial to its shareholders”

In both scenarios, management and major shareholders agreed to act in unison for the long-term benefit of each respective company and its shareholders.  Though a Lock-Up on it’s own does not create the kind of share price appreciation experienced by dynaCERT, both the underlying fundamental strengths and the shareholder unison can’t be denied as harbingers of a bright future.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Augusta revenues for 2016 / $4.6M
  • Augusta market cap is ~ $10,000,000 as of November 9, 2017
  • The proposed Spin-Off of FOX-TEK is expected to return up to $25,000,000 of stock to existing shareholders of Augusta.
  • Though terms of the Spin-Off are yet to be finalized, the proposed $2.5:$1 benefit to shareholders is now one step closer with the announcement of the Lock-Up Agreement.
