180 Degree Capital Corp.’s Portfolio Company, Synacor, Inc., Agrees to Merge with Qumu Corporation in All-Stock Transaction

Montclair, NJ | Posted on February 11th, 2020

According to SYNC, the combined company is expected to have over $120 million in annual revenue on a pro forma basis. This will include an estimated $70 million in software revenue, about 70% of which is recurring, and approximately $50 million in revenues from SYNC’s portal and advertising business. SYNC stated that this estimate is based upon the mid-point of SYNC’s current Full-Year 2019 guidance adjusted to exclude revenue related to ATT.net as previously disclosed and adding QUMU’s preliminary and unaudited Full-Year 2019 results.

SYNC also stated that the deal is expected to be accretive on both an adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS basis in the first fiscal year after close with expected annualized operational synergies of $4 - $5 million and excluding purchase accounting adjustments.

SYNC noted that, upon closing, SYNC stockholders are expected to own approximately 64.4% and QUMU shareholders are expected to own approximately 35.6% of the stock of the combined company. After closing, the combined business will trade on the Nasdaq under the ticker “SYNC”.

SYNC further noted that this transaction has been unanimously approved by the Boards of Directors of both companies and is expected to close mid-2020, subject to obtaining required approval from the stockholders of both SYNC and QUMU, and satisfaction of other customary closing conditions.
