GREENWOOD VILLAGE, COLORADO – January 27, 2023 - Scott’s Liquid Gold-Inc. (“The Company”) (OTC: SLGD) today announced the sale of its wood and floor care lines, which is part of its ongoing process to explore and pursue a variety of strategic alternatives focused on maximizing shareholder value.
The Company received gross proceeds of $1.9 million for the sale of its wood and floor care brands and will also receive a royalty on sales of the products for the next two years. The proceeds of the sale were used to reduce net debt.
The Company will continue to consider a wide range of options, including one or more of the following: the sale of additional brands; a sale, merger, or other strategic transaction involving the entire company; acquisitions of other brands or companies; issuance of additional debt or equity; and continuing to operate as a public, independent company.
The Company’s remaining brands include Alpha Skin Care, Biz Stain Fighter, Kids N Pets and Messy Pet, Denorex shampoo, Neoteric Diabetic Skin care, and Zincon Shampoo.
There can be no assurance that this process will result in any particular strategic alternative, or any assurance as to its outcome or timing. The Company has not set a timetable for completion of this process and does not intend to disclose developments related to the process unless and until the Board determines that further disclosure is appropriate or required.
