The Third Tranche Additional Acquired Shares were acquired for investment purposes.

By way of background, ADW Capital is a concentrated, deep value partnership, that employs a long term, high conviction, and low turnover “buy and hold” strategy. ADW is an investor driven by the fundamentals of the companies in which it is invested. Additionally, at times, ADW will employ activist/constructivist strategies to help enact change at its portfolio companies. Since its initial acquisition of Imvescor common shares, ADW Capital has tried, on multiple occasions, to engage with Imvescor’s senior management to implement strategies designed to maximize shareholder value. Following today’s announcement of the potential sale of Imvescor’s issued and outstanding common shares at a price of $4.10 per common share, ADW Capital announces its view that this price grossly undervalues Imvescor and a higher price can be obtained by continuing as a going concern or through a superior or enhanced offer.

ADW Capital is located at 1133 Broadway, Suite 719, New York, NY 10010, USA.
