RALEIGH, N.C., June 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LandStar, Inc. (LDSR) (“LandStar” or the “Company”), the parent company of Data443 Risk Mitigation, Inc. (“Data443”), a leading data security and privacy software company, issued the following letter to shareholders from CEO & President Jason Remillard.
Yesterday, we made several announcements and disclosures, and I wanted to provide this letter to address the questions some of you have had and provide context around some of the activities!
We are thrilled to have announced the letter of intent to acquire the assets of DataExpress™, a company with a long-term, proven track record of innovation and success that will greatly strengthen our core products and expand our customer base. Like our other transactions, this acquisition is a “no-brainer,” that we look forward to closing later this year.
In order for us to have the opportunity to make similar deals that prove accretive to our top and bottom lines like ARALOC, ArcMail, N8 Identity and DataExpress, we need to be able to access the capital markets in order to fund these acquisitions. Our documented and communicated strategy is for Data443 to be the complete data privacy, security and governance ecosystem that is unique and unrivalled in the marketplace. We have and will continue to deliver on this vision with a mix of acquisitions, product developments, cross-selling, and organic growth. As the Company grows, we can look for potentially bigger acquisition targets while having built a solid operational and financial foundation.
We filed a Schedule 14C Information Statement with the SEC after the market closed yesterday (which can be found here: https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1068689/000149315219009745/pre14c.htm). Within this statement, we disclosed our plans for a 1:750 reverse split and corporate name change which we will execute in the coming days.
While I acknowledge investor concerns regarding a reverse split, this is a necessary activity for the Company. We are actively accessing the capital markets to fund our acquisition pipeline, which require us to be cognizant of the investment community’s concerns regarding companies that trade on the Pink Sheets for under $0.01 per share, with an outstanding share count in the billions. This reverse split of our shares allows us to up-list our stock to a different exchange, while expanding the potential investor and financing partners we can bring into the Company thereby making these negotiations more competitive. Additionally, by up-listing, we can expand the set of investors able to invest and support our efforts which is a vital next step in growing the brand and achieving our shared vision. It is a testament to confidence of the investment community and our team’s hard work to have reached this critical inflection point where we can make proactive decisions about how to advance our capital structure and preferred market listing.
All of these actions benefit shareholders. By having a strong stock, in addition to cash and efficient debt, allows us to identify, target and close more deals in a quicker time frame. Because of the nature of our industry, including the growing regulatory, privacy and compliance environment, we need to act swiftly in developing our platform of products and services to meet the future challenges of our customers, and to outperform our competitors. Consolidation of technology companies and the products (SaaS and on-premise) are key to the enablement of this strategy. A better story, bigger upside and a personal connection to the leaders of these organizations is key. Delivering on that against other significant competitors, is even more crucial.
In less than two years, with the support of many, we have made incredible progress on building Data443 essentially from scratch. We’ve delivered on our promise to build our business to a revenue-generating operation with products and services that are second-to-none, to form a publicly-traded company that’s fully-reporting, dedicated to transparency. We are executing on the mission dedicated to delivering disruptive, necessary solutions that address the major shifts happening globally within data privacy and security requirements.
This has been built with a mix of amazingly talented people, accretive acquisitions, industry partners, and our loyal shareholders. While we still have much to do, I can say with confidence that we are in a better position today than ever before.
On behalf of the whole company and the supporting cast of characters, we would like to thank our long-term shareholders for supporting us, defending us and enabling this transformation. Your continued support and confidence in Data443, our mission and the global goals that we all have has enabled us to build a remarkable organization - worldwide, impactful and worthy organization.
We are excited. We are busy. We are delivering. We are building to & for scale…
Thank you for your support,
Your Proud CEO and President
