CEO's Open Letter to Infrax Systems (IFXY) Shareholders
Saint Petersburg, Dec. 18, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Infrax Systems, Inc., (OTC.BB: IFXY), a global provider of Smart Grid-related products and services for the Energy and Utility industries, today issued the following letter to our shareholders from our Chairman & Acting CEO Sam Talari:
Dear Fellow Shareholders,
As an acting CEO of Infrax Systems, I would like to update all of our shareholders on our current business events;
We are awaiting a response from our bid to our first (of the two) East African Country's national RFQ (Request For Quote) for our Enterprise Asset Management Software (EAM) product and services. We have placed the bid under a major prime contractor from that region. The exact value of the total contract is unknown but it is expected to be around $20,000,000. Based on the presence of the major prime contractor, we consider the outcome of this bid to be very favorable to Infrax and its subsidiary, Lockwood Technology. We have also entered our RFI (Request for Interest) under the same prime contractor for the second East African country and we expect to file a bid for that project no later than March 2013.
Lockwood continues expanding its presence with its current fortune 500 customers by its newly released version 11.5 EAM. We expect to start working on the next Gen EAM with *big date* and *big data analysis* in second quarter 2013.
Lockwood Technology is effectively continuing its CIVIL RICO litigation and so far has had favorable outcome. Due to the ongoing nature of this lawsuit, we are unable to furnish further detail without compromising our position.
We are continuing our dialogue with a prominent utility, with millions of customers, interested in potential pilot projects for their customers. Thier interest resides in our new approach to security and communication through the development of our Secure Network Interface card (SNIC) in partnership with PowerCon Systems. We are in discussions with this particular utility and others to complete all due diligence and proper documentation to ascertain any contract and revenue opportunities. We believe 2013 to be an important year for our Company and our products.
LOCKWOOD IPO - We have made considerable progress on the preparation and eventual filing of the S1 for the IPO of Lockwood Technology. We are anticipating a third quarter dividend date although we cannot guarantee the actual date which is dependent on SEC, FINRA and their approval process. Although the opening price of the IPO will be based on many factors (such as revenue and contracts), we anticipate a price range of between $0.20 and $1.00 per share. Again, we believe with Lockwood's current pipeline, the Company should flourish as a separate and independent public company. We will update our shareholders as more information becomes available.
In summation, in 2012, although faced with many challenges and difficulties, Infrax Systems has grown exponentially and has taken important steps in solidifying its presence within the power industry. It has fulfilled its technological promise in the smart Grid and the power grid as a whole. We believe that we have passed our darkest hours and the light of our technology will shine our way toward revenue and profitability starting in 2013.
Last but not least, on behalf of the employees of Infrax Systems, we wish all of our shareholders, customers and vendors a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Acting CEO of Infrax Systems
