UPDATE from December 18 2017: ICAHN CARL C 52% owner of $VLTC, adds more to his insider share ownership.
3 year weekly chart could have put in the bottom now… it has 10 bagger potential with a current market cap of only 5.8 Million!
It would take 27 days for all the short sellers to cover their position, could make for one really strong short squeeze.
$VLTC 10-Q Sept 30, 2017, items that stood out for me…
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
3. Real Estate Investments
During 2015 and 2016 we acquired two real estate properties, one located in Long Branch, NJ and the other in Flanders, NY.
5. Revolving Note
On August 7, 2015, we, as borrower, and Koala Holding LP (“Koala”), as lender, an affiliate of Carl C. Icahn, our controlling stockholder, entered into a revolving note (the “Prior Note”). Pursuant to the Prior Note, Koala made available to us a revolving loan facility of up to $10 million in aggregate principal amount. Borrowings under the Prior Note bore interest at a rate equal to the greater of the LIBOR rate plus 350 basis points, per annum, and 3.75%, per annum. The Prior Note also included a fee of 0.25%, per annum, on undrawn amounts and matured on the earliest of (i) December 31, 2017, (ii) the date on which any financing transaction, whether debt or equity, was consummated by us (or our successors and assigns) with net proceeds in an amount equal to or greater than $10 million, and (iii) at our option, a date selected by us that was earlier than December 31, 2017. Subject to the terms and conditions of the Prior Note, we could repay all or any portion of the amounts outstanding under the Prior Note at any time without premium or penalty, and any amounts so repaid would, until the maturity date, be available for re-borrowing. As collateral for the Prior Note, we pledged and granted to Koala a lien on our limited liability company interest in Voltari Real Estate Holding LLC (“Voltari Holding”). As of March 29, 2017, borrowings on this facility totaled $5.0 million.
On March 29, 2017, we and Koala amended and restated the Prior Note (the “Amended Note”). Pursuant to the Amended Note, Koala made available to the Company a revolving loan facility of up to $30 million in aggregate principal amount (the “Commitment”). The Company may, by written notice to Koala, request that the Commitment be increased (the “Increased Commitment”), provided that the aggregate amount of all borrowings, plus availability under the aggregate Increased Commitment, shall not exceed $80 million. Koala has no obligation to provide any Increased Commitment and may refuse to do so in its sole discretion. The Amended Note provides that the net proceeds thereunder in excess of $10 million will be used by the Company for the acquisition, improvement, development, modification, alteration, repair, maintenance, financing or leasing of real property, including any fees and expenses associated with such activities. Borrowings under the Amended Note will bear interest at a rate equal to the LIBOR Rate (as defined in the Amended Note) plus 200 basis points, per annum, subject to a maximum rate of interest of 3.75%, per annum. The Amended Note matures on the earliest of (i) December 31, 2020, (ii) the date on which any financing transaction, whether debt or equity, is consummated by the Company (or its successors and assigns) with net proceeds in an amount equal to or greater than $30 million, and (iii) at the Company’s option, a date selected by the Company that is earlier than December 31, 2020 (the “Maturity Date”). The Amended Note also allows the Company to, upon written notice to Koala not more than 60 days and not less than 30 days prior to the Maturity Date, request that Koala extend the Maturity Date to December 31, 2022. Koala may, in its sole discretion, agree to extend the Maturity Date by providing written notice to the Company on or before the date that is 20 days prior to the Maturity Date.
As of September 30, 2017, borrowings under the Amended Note equaled $5.5 million. The outstanding balance, including interest of $0.3 million, totaled $5.8 million.
As of September 30, 2017, our Series J preferred stock had an aggregate redemption value of approximately $55.4 million, including paid-in-kind dividends of $24.4 million and accrued dividends of $1.8 million. We recorded accretion associated with our Series J preferred stock of $0.7 million and $0.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively.
In connection with the closing of our rights offering on March 30, 2015 , entities affiliated with Mr. Carl C. Icahn, our largest shareholder, became the owner of approximately 52.3% of our common stock, which resulted in a change of control of the Company. This constituted a redemption event pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Series J preferred stock, and as a result each holder of shares of Series J preferred stock had the right to require the Company to redeem all or a portion of such holder’s shares of Series J preferred stock. Entities affiliated with Mr. Carl C. Icahn waived their option to redeem Series J preferred stock in connection with the change in control resulting from the completion of the rights offering that closed on March 30, 2015. On April 13, 2015, we redeemed 29,316 shares of Series J preferred stock for approximately $1.0 million in cash from holders not affiliated with Mr. Carl C. Icahn. Following the April 13, 2015 redemption of Series J preferred stock, entities affiliated with Mr. Carl C. Icahn became the owner of approximately 97.9% of our Series J preferred stock.
7. Liquidity and Capital Resources
Our principal needs for liquidity since we began executing our transformation plan in August, 2015, have been to fund operating losses, working capital requirements, capital expenditures, restructuring expenses, acquisitions and integration and debt service. Our principal sources of liquidity as of September 30, 2017, consisted of cash and cash equivalents of $0.6 million, and our ability to borrow on our Amended Note . See Note 5, Revolving Note, of our condensed consolidated financial statements for more information.
10. Subsequent Events
On October 11, 2017, the Warrants to purchase 1,014,958 shares of common stock, expired without any such Warrants being exercised.
Any future acquisitions are intended to be initially financed through borrowings available under our Amended Note (as defined herein) with Koala Holding LP (“Koala”).
