DPW Holdings Receives Debt Financing Targeted to Reduce Defense Sector Order Backlog

Funding from Senior Secured Creditor to Spur Cashflow from $17.5M in Current Contract Work

Newport Beach, Calif., Dec. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DPW Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: DPW), a diversified holding company (“DPW” or the “Company”), announced today that two of DPW’s subsidiaries have received $700,000 in debt financing to boost its effort to reduce the order backlog for the defense sector businesses of Coolisys Technologies, Inc. (“Coolisys”)  including its subsidiary, Enertec Systems 2001, Ltd. and Microphase Corporation Inc.. The backlog of these businesses currently comprises $17,500,000 of the $71,000,000 reported overall for the Company, and which are often single-source supplier orders. For fiscal year 2019, the gross profit margin for the $10,500,000 of the backlog is estimated to be 28% while the remaining backlog of $7,000,000 has a gross profit margin of approximately 40%.

Amos Kohn, CEO and President of Coolisys, said, “This funding is strategic as it begins our renewed efforts to reduce the value in our backlogged orders and spur our anticipated growth from both new and recurring orders throughout 2019. We reiterate that the Company’s focus for 2019 has transitioned to revenue growth and profitability and unlocking value for our shareholders through the integration and expansion of our operations within the defense sector. For 2019, Coolisys and the Company expect to be able to recognize the full value of all defense sector revenue when compared to 2018, a year of growth through acquisition and marginal revenue recognition.”

The funding for the defense sector businesses is from a transaction with the Holder pursuant to 10% simple annual interest and other terms, as disclosed in the Form 8-K dated December 31, 2018.
