Pioneer completes sale of subsidiary to Cleanspark
Transformer manufacturer Pioneer Power Solutions Inc. has completed the sale of its wholly owned subsidiary Pioneer Critical Power Inc. (PCPI) to microgrid company CleanSpark Inc.
The deal was valued at approximately $4.4 million and included Underwriters Laboratories safety files for low voltage switchgear and automatic transfer switches, which PCPI acquired as part of a 2013 acquisition of Power Systems Solutions Inc.
Under the terms of the all equity transaction Pioneer said it received 1.75 million shares of newly issued CleanSpark common stock; a five-year warrant to purchase 500,000 shares of CleanSpark common stock at an exercise price of $1.60 per share; and a five-year warrant to purchase 500,000 share of CleanSpark common stock at an exercise price of $2.00 per share.
“The sale of these assets, primarily intellectual property, represents another step in our efforts to create incremental value from our assets,” Pioneer Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Nathan Mazurek said in a prepared statement. “Our core business continues to perform well, and we are actively engaged in discussions to sell our switchgear business to further streamline our portfolio and unlock shareholder value.”
