HERNDON, Va., Sept. 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sysorex, Inc. (“Sysorex”) today announced the completion of its spin-off from Inpixon (Nasdaq: INPX) as an independent public company that offers right fit information technology and telecommunications solutions and professional services to commercial and government customers enabling organizations to manage, protect, and monetize their enterprise assets whether on-premises, in the cloud, or via mobile. Sysorex is anticipated to begin “regular way” trading on the OTC Markets on Tuesday, September 4, 2018, under the ticker symbol “SYSX.” Sysorex has applied to have its common stock quoted on the OTCQB platform of the OTC Markets.
Sysorex is led by Zaman Khan, Chief Executive Officer, President and a director, and Vincent Loiacono, as its Chief Financial Officer. Nadir Ali will continue to serve as a director and Chairman of the Board for continuity.
“Today we’re excited to announce the completion of the separation of Sysorex, Inc. from Inpixon,” said Zaman Khan, Chief Executive Officer of Sysorex. “We believe that we will now be able to more effectively pursue our operating priorities and strategies and concentrate our efforts on pursuing long-term growth and profitability by leveraging our brand and reputation in the industry, particularly within the federal government, and focusing exclusively on providing IT solutions and professional services that help our customers perform more efficiently and effectively to meet their business goals and objectives.”
In connection with the transaction, Inpixon distributed one share of Sysorex common stock for every three shares of Inpixon common stock to its stockholders (including holders of Inpixon’s Series 4 Convertible Preferred Stock) and holders of outstanding warrants of record as of August 21, 2018 entitled to participate in the distribution (collectively, the “Distributees”). No fractional Sysorex shares were issued; however, Distributees who would otherwise have been entitled to receive a fractional Sysorex share in the distribution will instead receive cash in lieu of that fractional share. The Sysorex shares were distributed at 4:01 Eastern time on August 31, 2018 in a distribution that is intended to be tax-free for U.S. federal income tax purposes, provided, however, that the receipt of cash in lieu of fractional shares generally will be taxable to the recipient for U.S. federal income tax purposes,. RECIPIENTS OF SYSOREX SHARES ARE ENCOURAGED TO CONSULT THEIR OWN TAX ADVISORS REGARDING THE PARTICULAR TAX CONSEQUENCES OF THE SPIN-OFF TO THEM.
In addition, prior to and in connection with the separation, Inpixon contributed $2 million to Sysorex in existing cash used for working capital needs and other general corporate purposes including the satisfaction of certain outstanding payables.
