Montvale, NJ – January 2, 2018 - Micronet Enertec Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQCM: MICT), (the “Company”), announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement with Coolisys Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of DPW Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: DPW), to sell its wholly owned subsidiary, Enertec Systems 2001 Ltd. Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, Coolisys will pay the Company $5,250,000 in cash upon closing(of which 10% will be held in escrow for up to 14 months after the Closing to satisfy certain potential indemnification claims) and assume $4,000,000 in Enertec bank debt, paying effectively a total of $9,250,000 for all of Enertec’s assets and liabilities. The transaction is scheduled to close the later of 60 day as of signing or 15 days after delivery of Enertec System’s  audited financial statements and is subject to customary closing conditions.
“We are extremely excited to enter into this agreement, which strongly supports and is fully aligns with our roadmap to increase the value of our Company by focusing all our resources on the MRM space. As the second phase of the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate  is now in effect, we believe 2018 will produce an even greater market demand, which we believe may  increase the revenues and profitability of our MRM business in the coming years,” said David Lucatz, Chief Executive Officer of Micronet Enertec Technologies.
This transaction fortifies our balance sheet by increasing our cash position and significantly reducing debt, while improving our income statement by eliminating all General and Administrative costs associated with Enertec. In addition, we believe our improved cash position will enable us to expand our MRM offerings,”

“The sale of Enertec to Coolisys empowers the Company to grow its MRM business more aggressively both organically and through acquisition. As our MRM revenues continue to increase each quarter, we aim to use this momentum and further invest all our focus and efforts to become a leader in the MRM space,” Lucatz added.
