NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Alliance MMA, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMMA) announced AMMA shareholders today approved the acquisition of SCWorx, Corp. The Company expects to close the transaction on or about January 31, 2019. Upon the closing of the transaction, the Company will have approximately $5 million in cash to fund the growth and development of the business. As previously reported, the shareholders of SCWorx agreed to fix the exchange ratio based upon an agreed value per AMMA share of $0.50 per share.
“I thank the shareholders for supporting the acquisition of SCWorx,” said John Price, President and CFO. Price added, “SCWorx’s business turned profitable during 2018 as the Company began to lever the SaaS based business model. SCWorx continues to gain traction through new heath care customer acquisition, and it anticipates further revenue growth and increased profitability into 2019.”
SCWorx offers an advanced software solution for the management of health care providers’ foundational business applications. Together these software systems have been credited with the healthcare providers’ customers tending to realize reduced medical expenses, while healthcare providers have tended to experience expanded revenues and more successful and safer clinical outcomes. The SCWorx software solution ultimately transforms many aspects of the healthcare providers’ business through its delivery of highly accurate, real-time information that offers the executives of these healthcare providers the ability to optimize many areas of their day-to-day operations, negotiate better contracts with their vendors and payors and make better decisions with respect to strategic purchases.
Although the Company expects to complete the acquisition as indicated above, the consummation of the transaction is subject to satisfaction of certain closing conditions, so there can be no assurance that it will be consummated.
