Shares of P10 INDUSTRIES INC COM USD0.001 (OTCMKTS:PIOE) spiked considerably, and out of the blue, following the company’s first press release update since it appointed a new board member back in August. The PPS over that same period had a tough time gaining any traction, but we’re seeing a sharp rise in activity to close out the trading week that will have the stock on our radars moving forward.
P10’s current business commenced on November 19, 2016, following completion of an asset acquisition of its Active Power assets by Piller Power Systems, Inc. Active Power changed its name to P10 Industries pursuant to the terms of the acquisition agreement.
This week P10 INDUSTRIES INC COM USD0.001 (OTCMKTS:PIOE) announced it has closed on the acquisition of RCP Advisors 2, LLC, and entered into a purchase agreement to acquire RCP Advisors 3, LLC, in January 2018. RCP Advisors is a sponsor of private equity funds-of-funds, secondary funds, co-investment funds, and also provides advisory and research services.
RCP Advisors received 44,171,233 newly issued shares of P10 (representing approximately 49% of P10 outstanding shares), alongside cash and seller notes. RCP Advisors will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of P10 and will continue to be managed by its existing team.
“We are excited to announce the acquisition of RCP Advisors, further building on our commitment to create shareholder value over time”, said Mark A. Ascolese CEO of P10 Industries. “As P10 embarks on its next phase of growth, I am excited to hand over the CEO duties to Robert H. Alpert and C. Clark Webb.”
Alongside the acquisition, Board Members Mark A. Ascolese and Daryl Dulaney are stepping down, replaced by Co-Founders and Managing Partners of RCP Advisors, William “Fritz” Souder and Jeff Gehl.
“We cannot thank Mark and Daryl enough for their leadership, vision, and commitment to creating long-term shareholder value,” said Co-CEOs Robert H. Alpert and C. Clark Webb. “Mark and Daryl have been integral to this process, and we wish them continued success in their future endeavors.” (Source:
