Kenny Hill, Victory’s Chief Executive Officer commented, “We are pleased that our stockholders voted overwhelmingly to approve this transaction and recognize the value of transforming Victory into a technology-driven, friction reducing oilfield products and services company. We believe this alliance with Liquidmetal Coatings’ affiliate, Armacor Victory Ventures, is a win for both companies and their respective stockholders. The alliance will provide Victory with a combination of patent-protected products, a rapidly developing commercial marketplace and exclusive distribution rights, that we believe create an ideal opportunity to scale product sales distribution and related services quickly into the major oil and gas basins of North America, including the Permian, Oklahoma STACK/SCOOP and Eagle Ford. We believe the Armacor patented brand of mid-pipe coating and RFID enclosure products will provide the perfect entry-point foundation to grow our Company and allow us to play a major role in addressing the industry’s need to operate more effectively in a low commodity price environment. Additional Liquidmetal Coatings products will be brought into market as they are approved by the upstream oil and gas companies who are already performing field testing. To aid in the acceleration of our distribution channels and quickly grow the business, we intend to begin acquiring already-identified U.S. oilfield service companies that are recognized for their quality products and services in the major U.S. oil and natural gas basins they serve.”
The official voting results for each item voted on by stockholders will be disclosed in a report on Form 8-K to be filed shortly with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
