CALGARY, Alberta, Jan. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Trakopolis IoT Corp. (TSXV: TRAK) ("Trakopolis" or the "Company") announced today that the Company and its subsidiary Trakopolis SaaS Corp. (“SaaS”) have completed the previously announced disposition of substantially all of the assets of SaaS (the “Transaction”) to a subsidiary of Geoforce, Inc. (“Geoforce”).

As a result of the completion of the Transaction, Trakopolis no longer has active business operations or assets other than the remaining cash proceeds from the Transaction, following the repayment of the Company’s senior secured debt and transaction costs. It is anticipated the remaining cash will allow Trakopolis to pay off a portion of its unsecured debt. The Company now plans to focus on the efficient winding-up of the affairs of Trakopolis and SaaS pursuant to proceedings under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (Canada) (the “Act”). No proceeds from the transaction are anticipated to be distributed to the shareholders of the Company.

Geoforce will be integrating the assets purchased from SaaS with its world leading global traceability solutions to serve over 1,300 customers in industries with intensive field operations and remote equipment including oil & gas, agriculture, construction and transportation.
