MINNETONKA, Minn., Jan. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Electro-Sensors, Inc. (Nasdaq: ELSE) and privately held Mobile X Global, Inc. announced today that the two companies have terminated the definitive merger agreement the parties entered into on June 10, 2022.

A condition to closing of the merger transaction was the consummation of an equity financing with minimum gross proceeds of $20.0 million, which the parties anticipated would be a PIPE investment (private investment in public equity). The financing necessary to consummate the merger was pursued but is not available due to difficult conditions in the financial markets, including the markets for PIPE investments.
