Sale of UEST NV to VAN ZELE HOLDING NV

 

Leuven, February 23, 2021 – 19h15 CET - CRESCENT NV (Euronext Brussels: OPTI), CRESCENT NV sold 100% shares of UEST NV to VAN ZELE HOLDING NV (VZH) on December 28, 2020 for 1 EUR (equity value), which is the same value as the original purchase price in 2019.

VZH is director and reference shareholder in CRESCENT NV, and for this reason has a possible conflicting interest of a patrimonial nature in the transaction. The legally required procedures in application of the conflict of interest regulation were respected.

UEST NV has been sold in the condition it is in, of which VZH is aware, including the need to restore the working capital estimated at 200,000 EUR. VZH is also aware that an additional significant investment is required to update the hardware and software platform.

CRESCENT does not consider the activities of UEST as strategic, and prefers to focus its investments on developments in smart city and smart industry applications.

The committee of independent directors, in its advice to the Board of Directors, concludes that after evaluating the available information, in particular the reports of Finvision as an independent expert dated December 2, 2020, the proposed transaction does not involve any apparent prejudice to the Company. It recommends that the Board of Directors approves this transaction.

Finvision's report on valuation of this transaction was made available on Crescent's website ((www.opticrescent.com) under Reports and Publications_Board Reports_Board of Directors_Independent Expert Report.

Leuven, 23 februari, 2021 – 19u15 CET - CRESCENT NV (Euronext Brussel: OPTI), CRESCENT NV heeft op 28 december 2020 100% aandelen van UEST NV verkocht aan VAN ZELE HOLDING NV (VZH) voor 1  EUR (equity value), wat dezelfde waarde is als de oorspronkelijke aankoopprijs in 2019.

VZH is bestuurder en referentie aandeelhouder in CRESCENT NV, en heeft om deze reden een mogelijk strijdig belang van vermogensrechtelijke aard bij de transactie. De wettelijk vereiste procedures in toepassing van de belangenconflictenregeling werden gerespecteerd.

UEST NV is verkocht in de toestand waarin het zich bevindt, waarvan VZH op de hoogte is, inclusief de nood tot herstel van het werkkapitaal geraamd op 200.000 EUR. VZH is eveneens op de hoogte dat een bijkomende significante investering vereist is voor het updaten van de hardware en het softwareplatform.

CRESCENT beschouwt de activiteiten van UEST niet als strategisch, en verkiest haar investeringen te richten op ontwikkelingen in smart city en industrie toepassingen.

Het comité van onafhankelijke bestuurders besluit in haar advies aan de Raad van Bestuur dat na evaluatie van de beschikbare informatie, met in het bijzonder de verslagen van Finvision als onafhankelijke expert van 2 december 2020, de voorgestelde transactie geen kennelijke benadeling van de Vennootschap met zich brengt. Zij adviseert de Raad van Bestuur om deze transactie goed te keuren.

Het verslag van Finvision inzake waardering van deze transactie werd op de website van Crescent ter beschikking gesteld (www.opticrescent.com) onder Reports and Publications_Board Reports_Board of Directors_Verslag onafhankelijk expert.

Leuven, February 12, 2021 – 7h30 CET - CRESCENT NV (Euronext Brussels: OPTI), Crescent today announces that it has developed and sold Lora based sensors and gateways for leak detection and valve control to GreenField Direct LLC (US).

The value of the project is expected to exceed 1,5M€ in 2021.

Finally, Crescent announces the sale of its UEST venture to Van Zele Holding NV thereby reducing the financial debt burden on its balance sheet by 450.000 EUR. The latter divestment is part of an increased strategic focus on smart city and industrial markets and applications.

Crescent Business Update

 

Leuven, 12 februari 2021 – 7u30 CET - CRESCENT NV (Euronext Brussel: OPTI) Crescent maakt vandaag bekend dat het op Lora gebaseerde sensoren en gateways voor lekdetectie en klepbediening heeft ontwikkeld en verkocht aan GreenField Direct LLC (VS).

Deze geïntegreerde IoT-oplossing stelt haar klant in staat om lekdetectie en klepbediening op afstand uit te voeren in "high-rise" gebouwen met als doel waterschade te voorkomen en tegelijkertijd preventieve acties te ondernemen wanneer waterlekken worden gedetecteerd.

De waarde van het project zal naar verwachting meer dan 1,5 miljoen euro bedragen in 2021.

 

Crescent kondigt verder aan dat zij verwacht dat haar operationele resultaten voor 2020 zeer vergelijkbaar zullen zijn met die van 2019, zij het met iets betere Ebitda-bijdragen en ondanks aanzienlijke COVID-19 gerelateerde vertragingen en uitstel van verschillende projecten.

 

Tot slot kondigt Crescent de verkoop aan van haar UEST venture aan Van Zele Holding NV, waardoor de financiële schuldenlast op haar balans met 450.000 EUR vermindert. Deze laatste desinvestering kadert in een verhoogde strategische focus op smart city en smart industriële markten en toepassingen.

GEREGLEMENTEERDE INFORMATIE - VOORWETENSCHAP

Crescent NV sluit een financieringsovereenkomst af met LDA Capital Limited

 

Brussels/Leuven, Belgium – 22 januari, 2021 – 7u30 - Crescent (EURONEXT: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY kondigt aan dat het een financieringsovereenkomst heeft gesloten met LDA Capital Limited ("LDA"). LDA is een in Los Angeles gevestigde wereldwijde investeringsgroep met expertise in grensoverschrijdende transacties in de bedrijfstechnologiesector, waaronder Cybersecurity, AI, IOT en SaaS.

LDA heeft toegezegd een bedrag van maximaal EUR 9,9 miljoen (de "Capital Commitment") in contanten binnen een periode van maximaal drie jaar toe te zeggen in ruil voor nieuwe gewone aandelen in Crescent. Crescent heeft toegezegd om binnen 18 maanden een minimumbedrag van EUR 5 miljoen aan aandelen uit te geven aan LDA Capital.

Deze kapitaalverbintenis zal worden vrijgegeven op basis van kapitaalopvragingen door Crescent in de vorm van put-opties die Crescent naar eigen goeddunken mag uitoefenen. Het bedrag van de put-opties zal door Crescent worden bepaald en afhankelijk zijn van bepaalde parameters zoals het handelsvolume van gewone aandelen van Crescent gedurende de voorafgaande periode van 15 handelsdagen voorafgaand aan de dag van uitgifte van een put-optie. De uitoefenprijs van de put-optie zal worden bepaald door de naar volume gewogen gemiddelde prijs (VWAP) van de aandelen van Crescent gedurende een prijsperiode van 30 dagen volgend op de dag van uitgifte van kennisgeving van een put-optie en zal worden vastgesteld op 90% van deze uitoefenprijs, wat een korting van 10% impliceert. De minimuminschrijvingsprijs van de nieuwe aandelen zal niet lager zijn dan EUR 0,03, tenzij LDA Capital en Crescent anders overeenkomen.

Bij elke uitoefening van de put-optie zal LDA inschrijven op minimaal 60% van het door Crescent gevraagde volume aandelen. LDA heeft ermee ingestemd niet meer dan 19,9% van de gewone aandelen van Crescent aan te houden. Aangezien LDA een minderheidsbelang nastreeft, zal het niet betrokken zijn bij het management, noch zal het een zetel in de Raad van Bestuur bekleden. Gezien het uitgebreide netwerk van LDA in de technologiesector zal LDA echter trachten de groeiplannen van Crescent te ondersteunen door mogelijk aantrekkelijke overnamemogelijkheden te identificeren.

Als onderdeel van de kapitaalverbintenis heeft LDA het recht warrants te ontvangen voor maximaal 46.400.000 nieuwe gewone aandelen Crescent tegen een uitoefenprijs van EUR 0,046 per gewoon aandeel (behoudens gebruikelijke aanpassingen). Crescent zal de goedkeuring van een buitengewone algemene vergadering vragen voor de uitgifte van de warrants. De warrants hebben een looptijd van drie jaar en zijn uitoefenbaar zodra ze zijn uitgegeven. Crescent zal haar verslag van de Raad van Bestuur in het kader van de transactie met LDA Capital, overeenkomstig de artikelen 7:180, 7:191 en 7:193 WVV, beschikbaar stellen waarin zij een verantwoording geeft van de voorgenomen transactie, in het bijzonder een verantwoording van de voorgestelde uitoefenprijs van de LDA Warrants, en een beschrijving van de gevolgen voor de financiële en aandeelhoudersrechten van de bestaande aandeelhouders in het kader van de transactie met LDA Capital.

De put-optie overeenkomst bepaalt dat de Vennootschap aan LDA een vergoeding zal betalen van EUR 198.000 (2% van het maximumbedrag van EUR 9.900.000).

 

Eric Van Zele, Voorzitter & CEO, Crescent verklaarde: "We gaan voor LDA's alternatieve vorm van financiering omdat deze voldoende flexibiliteit en niet-beperkend kapitaal biedt ter ondersteuning van onze groeidoelstellingen om een toonaangevende leverancier van IoT-oplossingen te worden. Ondanks pandemiegerelateerde obstakels en vertragingen heeft Crescent verschillende belangrijke groeimogelijkheden en projecten geïdentificeerd en veiliggesteld, en anticipeert het op een aanzienlijke behoefte aan extra werkkapitaal en acquisitiefinanciering. Bovendien zal de Capital Commitment onze balans versterken en Crescent in staat stellen om ook strategische acquisities en investeringen te doen in nieuwe softwaremogelijkheden en aanvullende sensoring competenties."

Warren Baker, Managing Partner van LDA Capital, zei: "We zijn verheugd om een ervaren managementteam te steunen met een gevestigde internationale staat van dienst in de elektrische en elektronische productie-industrie.  De afgelopen 12 maanden is de cruciale rol van technologie in het verbinden van onze samenleving alleen maar versneld -- het uitgebreide IoT-oplossingenplatform van Crescent en haar vermogen om IoT-projecten in een breed scala van industrieën te realiseren, positioneert het bedrijf op een unieke manier om te profiteren van de exponentiële groei in de sector."

REGULATED INFORMATION - INSIDE INFORMATION

Crescent NV enters into a financing agreement with LDA Capital Limited

 

Brussels/Leuven, Belgium – January 22, 2021 – 7h30 - Crescent (EURONEXT: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY) announces it has entered into a financing agreement with LDA Capital Limited (“LDA”). LDA is a Los Angeles based global investment group with expertise in cross-border transactions in the enterprise technology sector including Cybersecurity, AI, IOT and SaaS.

LDA agreed to commit an amount of up to EUR 9.9 million (the "Capital Commitment") in cash within a maximum of three years in exchange for new ordinary shares in Crescent. Crescent has committed to issue a minimum amount of EUR 5 million in shares to LDA Capital within 18 months.

This Capital Commitment will be released based on capital calls by Crescent in the form of put options which Crescent has the right to exercise at its own discretion. The amount of the put options will be determined by Crescent and depend on certain parameters such as Crescent's trading volume during the previous 15 trading day period prior to the day of issuance of a put option. The strike price of the put option will be determined by the volume weighted average price (VWAP) of Crescent's shares during a 30-day pricing period following the day of issuance of a put option notice and fixed at 90% of this strike price implying a 10% discount. The minimum subscription price of the new shares shall not be lower than EUR 0.03, unless otherwise agreed by LDA Capital and Crescent.

Upon each exercise of the put option, LDA will subscribe to a minimum of 60% of the volume of shares requested by Crescent. LDA has agreed to hold no more than 19.9% of Crescent's common stock. As LDA seeks a non-controlling interest it will not be involved in management, nor will hold a seat in the Board of Directors. However, given LDA’s expansive network in the Technology sector LDA will seek to support Crescent’s growth plans by potentially identifying attractive acquisition opportunities.

As part of the Capital Commitment, LDA is entitled to receive warrants for up to 46,400,000 new Crescent ordinary shares at an exercise price of EUR 0.046 per ordinary share (subject to customary adjustments). Crescent will seek approval of an Extraordinary General Assembly to issue the warrants. The warrants have a term of three years and will be exercisable once issued. Crescent will make available its report of the Board of Directors within the framework of the transaction with LDA Capital, in accordance with articles 7:180, 7:191 and 7:193 WVV, in which it will give an account of the proposed transaction, in particular an account of the proposed exercise price of the LDA Warrants, and a description of the consequences for the financial and shareholders rights of the existing shareholders within the framework of the transaction with LDA Capital.

The Put Option Agreement provides that the Company will pay LDA a fee of EUR 198,000 (2% of the maximum amount of EUR 9,900,000).

 

Eric Van Zele, Chairman & CEO, Crescent stated, “We sought LDA’s alternative form of financing because it provides ample flexibility and non-restrictive capital to support our growth objectives to become a leading provider of IoT solutions. Despite pandemic related obstacles and delays, Crescent has identified and secured several major growth opportunities and projects, anticipating a substantial need for additional working capital and acquisition financing. Moreover, the Capital Commitment will strengthen our balance sheet and allow for Crescent to also make strategic acquisitions and investments in new software capabilities and supplementary sensing competencies.”

Warren Baker, Managing Partner of LDA Capital, said: “We are pleased to back an experienced management team with an established international track record in the electrical and electronic manufacturing industry.  The last 12 months have only accelerated the critical role of technology in connecting our society -- Crescent’s comprehensive IoT solutions platform and its ability to deliver on IoT projects across a broad range of industries uniquely positions the Company to take advantage of the exponential growth in the sector.”

Smartville vereenvoudigt de weg naar een slimme stad en gemeente

Leuven, België – 14 januari 2021 – 18u30, Crescent NV, Gaston Geenslaan 14, 3001 Heverlee (Euronext Brussels: OPTI)

 

De maatschap Smartville helpt steden en gemeenten in Vlaanderen en Brussel met hun ontwikkeling als slimme gemeente, stad of regio.

 

Smartville is een samenwerkingsverband met ondermeer Crescent NV als één van de maatschap-leden en heeft de competitie voor het raamcontract van CIPAL DV ‘Smart City Cloudplatform voor positieve incentivering, ontrading en handhaving’ in de wacht gesleept.

 

CIPAL DV wil met behulp van dit raamcontract een aankoopcentrale vormen met een grote catalogus aan Smart City componenten (zowel software als hardware) die allemaal naadloos op elkaar aansluiten.

Het maximale totaal budget is 40M€ gedurende maximum 5+1+1 jaar

De afnemers van dit raamcontract kunnen projecten uit deze catalogus kopen zonder zelf een aanbestedingsprocedure te moeten voeren.

Onder meer alle steden en gemeenten in Vlaanderen en Brussel kunnen zich inschrijven als deelnemers.

 

Met data op weg naar een slimme stad

 

Het doel van Smartville is om steden en gemeenten te helpen zich (verder) te ontwikkelen als een slimme gemeente, stad of regio. Om op een doelgerichte wijze te werken aan een slimme samenleving heeft een stad of gemeente nood aan informatie uit verschillende bronnen die eenvoudig samenkomen en geanalyseerd worden. Hierdoor ontstaan nieuwe inzichten die het beleid helpen sturen.

Door informatie uit onder meer openbare databronnen, camera’s en administratieve systemen te combineren, kunnen steden en gemeenten gewenst gedrag belonen en ongewenst gedrag beteugelen. Smartville maakt gebruik van een aantal deelsystemen die het instrumentarium vormen een slimme stad, met focus op duurzaamheid, mobiliteit en milieu.

 

Voorbeelden van deelsystemen zijn:

  1. Beloning van scholieren die naar school fietsen
  2. Parkeerbegeleiding, zonebewaking en vermijden van sluipverkeer
  3. Bestrijding van sluikstorten en begeleiding van een afvam-arm beleid
  4. Slimme combi-infrastructuur van sensoren, LED verlichting en laadpalen.
  5. Dynamiseren van de lokale economie
  6. Smart City dashboards

CIPAL DV

 

De dienstverlenende vereniging Cipal ("Cipal dv") is een intergemeentelijk samenwerkingsverband overeenkomstig het decreet lokaal bestuur. De vereniging telt vandaag 262 leden. Dat zijn steden en gemeenten, OCMW’s, intergemeentelijke samenwerkingsverbanden, hulpverleningszones en welzijnsverenigingen verspreid over heel Vlaanderen.

Deze dienstverlening wordt aangeboden onder de merknaam “C-smart” en beoogt de tastbare ondersteuning van de digitale transformatie van lokale overheden en een betekenisvolle bijdrage aan de uitbouw van een slimme data-economie in Vlaanderen.

REGULATED INFORMATION - INSIDE INFORMATION

Crescent Half year results 2020

 

Leuven, Belgium – September 30, 2020 – 7h30 - Crescent (EURONEXT: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY)

 

 

H1 Key points

 

- Despite difficult market conditions, the group's sales increased by 1.3% to EUR 9.0 million compared to the first semester of 2019.

- EBITDA is slightly positive at EUR 0.1 million.

- The services division continues to perform well

- Net financial debt decreases from EUR 6.1 million to EUR 5.2 million.

- The group expects to continue to generate profitable growth despite uncertain economic conditions

 

Results of the first half year

  

Despite slightly higher sales, EBITDA decreased compared to the first half year of 2019.

However excluding onetime income and expenses, the recurring EBITDA improved from EUR -0.3 million EUR to 0.1mio EUR.

In the first half year of 2020, total operating expenses were further reduced by EUR 0.3 million,

 

The turnover and EBITDA of the three divisions for the first half of the year are as shown below:

  

The services division continued its strong results in the first half and was able to improve both turnover and EBITDA.

At the same time, it invested in the development of new software integration activities, the first results of which will become visible in the second half of the year.

 

The Solutions and Lighting divisions have experienced more pronounced impact from the corona crisis. At Crescent NV, the impact on turnover could be absorbed by marketing the ‘Safe distance by Option’ solution on the one hand (turnover of 0.5 million EUR) and by cost saving measures on the other hand. Total IOT sales

have noticeably been impacted by the corona crisis particularly during the months of March and April with semester sales decreasing by 4% compared to the first half of 2019.

 

The Lighting division's sales in the first half of the year were also affected by the pandemic; particularly outside the Netherlands sales were very limited; total sales decreased by 14%.

 

Balance sheet

  

Net working capital decreased by EUR 1.7 million, mainly due to EUR 0.2 million decrease in inventories, EUR 0.8 million decrease in trade receivables and EUR 0.5 million increase in trade and other payables.

Within the corona government measures in force in Belgium and the Netherlands, EUR 0.1 million of capital reimbursements of financial debts were suspended and EUR 0.4 million of tax and social security payments were deferred.

 

Outlook

 

Unless the corona crisis in the fourth quarter would have an even greater negative impact on the evolution of revenues , recently received letters of intent to enter into sales contracts allow the group to be cautiously optimistic about continued and profitable increase in sales and EBITDA in all divisions during the second half of the year.

GEREGLEMENTEERDE INFORMATIE EN VOORWETENSCHAP

Crescent halfjaarresultaten 2020

 

Leuven, België – 30 september 2020 – 7u30 - Crescent (EURONEXT: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY)

 

 

H1 Kernpunten

 

  • Ondanks moeilijke marktomstandigheden, stijgt de omzet van de groep met 1,3% naar 9.0 miljoen EUR in vergelijking met het eerste halfjaar van 2019.
  • De EBITDA is met 0,1 miljoen EUR licht positief
  • De services divisie blijft goed presteren
  • De netto financiële schuld vermindert van 6.1 miljoen EUR naar 5.2 miljoen EUR
  • Binnen het huidige onzekere economische klimaat, verwacht de groep in het tweede halfjaar verder winstgevende omzetgroei te kunnen realiseren.

 

Resultaten van het eerste halfjaar

 

Ondanks de licht hogere omzet, is de EBITDA in vergelijking met het eerste haljaar van 2019 gedaald.

Zonder eenmalige kosten en inkomsten, verbetert de recurrente EBITDA van -0.3 miljoen EUR  naar 0.1 miljoen EUR.

In het eerste halfjaar van 2020 werden de totale bedrijfskosten verder verminderd met 0.3 miljoen EUR,

 

De omzetten en EBITDA van de drie divisies waren in het eerste semester :

 

 

De services divisie heeft in het eerste semester haar sterke resultaten doorgetrokken, en zowel omzet als EBITDA kunnen verbeteren.

Terzelfdertijd heeft zij geïnvesteerd in de uitbouw van nieuwe software integratie activititeiten waarvan de eerste resultaten in de tweede jaarhelft zichtbaar zullen worden.

 

De solutions en lighting divisies hebben iets meer impact ondervonden van de coronacrisis. Bij Crescent NV is de impact op de omzet opgevangen door het vermarkten van de ‘Safe distance by Option’ oplossing enerzijds (omzet van 0.5 miljoen EUR) en door kostenbesparende maatregelen anderzijds. De totale IOT verkopen zijn zeker door de coronacrisis geïmpacteerd, vooral in de maanden maart en april waardoor de semester omzet daalde met 4% in vergelijking met het eerste halfjaar van 2019.

 

De omzet van de Lighting divisie in het eerste halfjaar ondervond eveneens de gevolgen van de pandemie, met name de verkopen buiten Nederland waren zeer beperkt; de totale omzet verminderde daardoor met 14%.

 

Balans

 

Het netto werkkapitaal daalde met 1.7 miljoen EUR, voornamelijk door de daling van de voorraden met 0.2 miljoen EUR, de daling van de handelsvorderingen met 0.8 miljoen EUR en de stijging van handels-en overige schulden met 0.5 miljoen EUR.

Binnen de geldende corona-overheidsmaatregelen in België en Nederland werden voor 0.1 miljoen EUR kapitaalsaflossingen van financiële schulden opgeschort en 0.4 miljoen EUR betalingen aan belastingen en sociale schulden uitgesteld.

 

Vooruitzichten

 

Tenzij de coronacrisis in het vierde kwartaal een grotere negatieve impact zou hebben op de ingeschatte evolutie van de leveringen van producten en diensten, laten recent ontvangen intentieverklaringen tot sluiten van verkoopscontracten de groep toe om te voorzien dat de omzet en EBITDA in het tweede halfjaar in alle divisies kan worden verhoogd.
