SANTA ROSA, Calif., March 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Democrasoft, Inc. (OTC: DEMO) announced today that effective March 8, 2013, all of its assets and liabilities were transferred into one of its two wholly-owned subsidiaries, Collaborize, Inc. This new private company expects to issue new securities, as appropriate, to interested investors. Reflecting its status as a holding company, Democrasoft will be renamed Democrasoft Holdings, Inc., and the subsidiary (the operating company) will do business as Democrasoft.
The public company (currently Democrasoft, Inc.) will initially be the sole shareholder of the operating company. It will engage in no other activities for the foreseeable future, except as it may benefit from the operations of its private subsidiary. The financial results of the two companies will be consolidated, as required by the accounting rules, and both companies will cease publicly distributing financial or other information.
According to Democrasoft Chairman & CEO Richard Lang, "We are responding to a long-standing fund-raising obstacle, as well as the advice of potential and existing investors who are reluctant to invest in a company whose stock is thinly traded on the public "pink sheets," where our market valuation and liquidity have typically been disconnected from the true value that we believe is inherent in our company and its current and potential opportunities."
"By operating in the form of a private company, we can offer new investors a greatly simplified investment vehicle with only one existing shareholder, our holding company. Meanwhile, we plan to preserve the eventual liquidity that may be available to our shareholders through our public vehicle, upon the success of our private subsidiary" said Lang.
