    Recent News

    Shares of ALAN soared past 132% gains yesterday as the Company announced a definitive merger deal with YuuZoo Corp., a global provider of mobile targeted social networks, targeted advertising and mobile payment systems.

    “This merger represents a unique opportunity for Alanco’s approximately 2,700 shareholders to participate in one of the fastest-growing market opportunities of our lifetime – the mobile Internet. Our merger partner, YuuZoo Corp., is a global pioneer in this new market with a world-class management team, and a brief, but convincing, track record of strong growth and profitability,” ALAN chairman and CEO Rober Kauffman commented in the release.

    Under the definitive merger deal, ALAN will issue about 34 million common shares to YuuZoo shareholders in exchange for 100% of outstanding YuuZoo equity interests, resulting in ALAN shares outstanding totaling approximately 39 million. Upon close of the merger transaction, current YuuZoo and Alanco shareholders will own 88% and 12%, respectively, of the new company’s outstanding common stock.

    ALAN last month announced the completion of sale of its StarTrak Systems subsidiary to ORBCOMM Inc. – a deal previously announced early this year. Although the Company remained compliant with all quantitative requirements for continued listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market, ALAN previously said the NASDAQ Staff advised the Company that it was no longer eligible for continued listing given the staff’s determination that it no longer has any operating business.

    The Company said it has requested a hearing before an independent NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel in which the Company would request continued listing on NASDAQ pending completion of its merger with YuuZoo Corp.  ALAN expects to address the staff’s concerns about its operating status. However, there can be no assurance that the panel will grant the Company’s request. The hearing was set for June 30, 2011.

    ALAN said the definitive merger agreement is contingent upon NASDAQ approval, usual due diligence completion, and regulatory compliance, as well as approval from the Company’s and YuuZoo’s shareholders.
