Voxtur Solidifies Position as Independent Valuation Tech Provider with Divestiture of AMC Business
Company’s exit from appraisal management services space positions Voxtur as a pure-play tech company
TORONTO and TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Voxtur Analytics Corp. (TSXV: VXTR; OTCQB: VXTRF) (“Voxtur” or the “Company”), a North American technology company creating a more transparent and accessible real estate lending ecosystem, announced that today, its wholly-owned subsidiary Voxtur Analytics U.S. Corp. (“Voxtur US“), has executed a membership interest purchase agreement (“Agreement”) today in an arms length sign and close transaction with Accurate Group Holdings, LLC (“AGH”) and Voxtur Services LLC (“Voxtur Services”), whereby the Company, through Voxtur US, today sold 100% of the outstanding membership interests in Voxtur Services to AGH, for consideration of USD$30 million, with USD$26 million paid in cash on closing and an additional USD$4 million in earn-out consideration to be paid upon the achievement of certain financial targets as set forth in the Agreement (the “Transaction”). The majority of the proceeds from the Transaction will be used to reduce the Company’s credit facility.
As a result of the Transaction, the Company has divested of all its holdings in its appraisal management company (“AMC”) business to streamline its operations and narrow its valuation focus on its technology offerings for the real estate space. Voxtur will continue to provide technology solutions to the valuation industry by way of its Voxtur Anow platform with: Appraisal Direct, its appraisal management rules-based engine that connects lenders directly to valuation professionals; Voxtur Connect, its business management and workflow tool for lenders to manage multiple appraisal management companies; Voxtur Data Collection and Walkthrough application, its web-based data collection tool, Voxtur ReportsNow, its automated rules based report builder that assists valuation professionals in generating comprehensive valuation reports; and Apex Sketch, its software application that creates exterior and interior floorplan sketches.
“Exiting the AMC space is a strategic play that enables Voxtur to embrace its position as an independent valuation technology leader in the real estate tech world,” said Gary Yeoman, CEO of Voxtur. “We are excited to move forward with a renewed focus on the solutions we can provide the market to create a better, more efficient lending lifecycle.”
