Live Current Media Retains Leading Investment Bank Arbor Advisors to Sell Six Non-Core Domain Names
Live Current Media Inc. (OTCBB:LIVC), a media company built around content and commerce destinations, announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Palo Alto-based Arbor Advisors, LLC to sell six of its non-core but highly valuable dot-com domain names from the Company's portfolio of more than 800 domains.
Live Current expects to market the domain names for an aggregate amount of $6 million to $10 million and anticipates negotiating transactions for the sale of some or all of the six domain names within 90 days.
Geoffrey Hampson, Chief Executive Officer, Live Current, stated, "The strategic value of premium top-level domain names has remained strong despite the difficult environment and we believe that it is a prudent time to sell some of our non-core domain names as a non-dilutive form of financing to fund the growth of our health & beauty and sports media businesses. Management also intends to exploit the opportunities afforded it by continuing to develop either directly or through partnerships our remaining highly prized top-level domain names."
Lou Doctor, Managing Director, Arbor Advisors, said, "We are excited to work closely with Live Current Media to find strategic buyers for six of their highly valuable but non-core domain names. Live Current has a truly world-class portfolio of top-level domain names and even in these turbulent times the demand for such domain names remains strong."
