Below is a table summarizing the key financial metrics of the combined enterprise had they been merged as of January 1, 2017:
“On a pro forma basis, the merger with BioTrack has tripled Helix’s consolidated revenues while adding a leading seed-to-sale compliance software provider to our portfolio,” commented Scott Ogur, Chief Financial Officer of Helix TCS. “Our strategic plan has been to utilize M&A transactions that align Helix’s services and capabilities to provide our clients with the integrated operating environments they require to be successful in the legal cannabis industry.”
On August 7, 2018, approximately two months after closing the merger with BioTrack, the Company announced the acquisition of Engeni S.A., a software development firm located in Argentina. As previously disclosed, the Engeni acquisition will support software development in critical applications across business lines, to include BioTrack and Cannabase, by expanding in-house capabilities with an experienced team of technology executives and programmers as we continue to execute on our strategy.
Expanding upon the details disclosed in the Helix TCS, Inc. press release dated August 7, 2018, the Company would like to add that the acquisition of Engeni S.A. was facilitated through the issuance of 366,700 restricted common shares of Helix TCS, Inc. at deal closing, with the potential for the Engeni S.A. management team, to earn up to 733,300 additional restricted common shares of Helix TCS, Inc. plus $100,000 cash.
The Engeni S.A. team has already begun work on the next innovations of BioTrack’s software, with key BioTrack programming executives relocating to Argentina to ensure that the detailed feedback from the customer base is translated fully into functionality that cannabis industry clients want and need.
“The Helix leadership team has extensive experience operating in emerging and frontier markets, as well as assisting in the integration of software companies in optimizing development of their products,” commented Helix TCS, Inc. Chief Executive Officer Zachary Venegas. “The Engeni transaction empowers BioTrack’s ability to continue to support and improve its current OS keeping up with the ever-changing needs of the evolving industry.”
"Given our strong position in both the government and commercial segments of the seed-to-sale software market, we have a constant flow of feedback from users. We are excited to deploy additional resources to meet more of our users’ demands while ensuring the secure and powerful nature of our technology is unchanged,” concluded Patrick Vo, Chief Executive Officer of BioTrackTHC.
