A US data centre maintenance company has agreed to pay US$115 million cash (S$156 million) for all the assets of Procurri's third-party hardware maintenance business.

The consideration translates into approximately 55 Singapore cents a share (ie S$156 million divided by 284.7 million outstanding shares).

That far exceeds the stock's trading range of 41.5 - 47 cents today, the first day of trading post-announcement on the potential transaction. 

There is still much value left in Procurri's two other business segments -- IT Asset Disposition and IT Hardware Resale -- as they account for about half of Procurri's gross profit.

Its hardware maintenance business was the subject of an unsolicited, non-binding letter of intent from Park Place Technologies, LLC, which has completed at least 11 acquisitions since 2016

Procurri had, on 21 Nov 2019, agreed to revised terms, and announced it on 22 Nov (Friday).


Park Place is a third-party maintenance company backed by private equity and supporting assets in over 141 countries globally and has over 1,300 employees.

A definitive agreement for the purchase of Procurri's business is subject to, among other things, the receipt by Park Place of formal approvals from its board of managers and equity fund majority owners. (For details, see Procurri's announcement here). 



This potential unlocking of value at Procurri follows on Novo Tellus PE Fund 2, L.P. and its co-investor A.C.T Holdings, collectively taking a 29.86% stake in Procurri.

It's anything but a passive stake. Novo Tellus' playbook is to be an active partner bringing its deep industry knowledge to bear.

As Procurri's CEO, Sean Murphy, said in March 2019: "With their record of close and successful partnerships with management teams to grow companies globally, we are excited to have Novo Tellus as our new investment partner.”

Investor attention could turn to ISDN Holdings, in which Novo Tellus has been building up its stake in the past few months and helping to enhance its business value. (See:
