The Board of Directors is also pleased to announce the unanimous reappointment of Mr. James "Jim" Jacob, of Palm Springs California, as President and Chief Executive Officer.
Stephen G. Macklem was reappointed by the Board as Veltex's Chief Financial Officer and also as corporate Secretary / Treasurer by unanimous vote.
R. Preston Roberts, who continues as Chairman of the Board, stated at the Annual Meeting, "Veltex is currently exploring all opportunities accessible, including, but not limited to, the retention of an investment bank, to maximize shareholder value surrounding these corporate properties. Our strategy has always been to maximize the value of our judgments and other assets. Whether you are a private equity firm or a corporate acquirer looking for corporate acquisition deals at the right price, or an investment bank or broker looking for deal mandates, or a law firm looking to expand its M&A practice, the question we now have before us is: 'Based on our strategy, who are the most relevant people that should be on our calling list this year?" In fact, recently, Veltex has entered into a contract with Mountain Valley Partners LLC, a company structured to specifically explore opportunities to expand shareholder value by merger or acquisition of Veltex.
James "Jim" Jacob, President and CEO, stated, "Veltex has recently filed liens in both Nevada and California on properties associated with our judgments and have also begun asset searches and examinations of individuals and corporations who are legal creditors to Veltex. We have retained a major Nevada law firm to aggressively seek out and attach properties for the benefit of Veltex and its shareholders in Clark County Nevada." Mr. Jacobs continued, "Property liens have also been filed in Orange County California. Moreover, this Board and management are currently in contact with numerous private and public corporate entities exploring business combinations with Veltex, including but not limited to, an acquisition of Veltex. We have left nothing off the table. Of course, there are no guarantees, and we have just begun this process, however I am more than optimistic about our prospects."
Veltex reported that the company's balance sheet now reflects more that $142 million dollars in judgments and interest in favor of Veltex Corporation along with $1,441,000 of net operating loss carry forwards at the end of 2015. Veltex has continuously sought the advice of foremost legal and accounting firms to protect and expand upon these potential valuable assets.
