Conversion Labs Increases Stake in Fast-Growing SaaS Subsidiary
NEW YORK, Jan. 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Conversion Labs, Inc. (NASDAQ: CVLB), a leading direct-to-consumer telemedicine company, has increased its stake in its legacy LegalSimpli Software subsidiary from 51% to 82.6%, largely from the conversion of long-term debt held by Conversion Labs into equity.
LegalSimpli operates PDFSimpli.com, an online software-as-a-service (SaaS) that allows users to easily create, edit, convert, sign and share PDF documents. The subsidiary is currently operating at an annualized run-rate revenue of more than $18 million.
“Since we first invested in LegalSimpli in 2018, its growth has been explosive, driven by its exceptionally talented management team and the same trends driving our telemedicine business, including the massive consumer shift toward subscription-based online services,” noted Conversion Labs’ CEO, Justin Schreiber.
Corey Deutsch, head of corporate development, added: “Conversion Labs remains 100% focused on the tremendous growth opportunities in telemedicine, as evidenced by the triple-digit growth in our Rex MD and Shapiro MD brands over the last year. However, as we begin to explore strategic alternatives for this valuable, yet non-core asset, we believe it was an opportune time and advantageous to our shareholders to secure a significantly larger position at favorable terms.”
Further details of the transaction can be found in the company’s current report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and available at sec.gov and from the investor section of the company’s website at ir.conversionlabs.com.
