Code Rebel Pursues Merger With Aegis Identity Software and Entry Into Identity Security and Access Management Market

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jan 14, 2016) - Code Rebel Corp. (NASDAQ: CDRB), an enterprise software development firm that licenses its proprietary software solution to enable simplified secure access and communications between PC and Mac environments on virtually any computer, tablet, or smartphone, today announced its entry into a non-binding Letter of Intent ("LOI") to engage in a merger with Aegis Identity Software, Inc. ("Aegis Identity"), a privately-held company and a leading provider of on-premise and cloud-based identity and access management products and services for the K-12 and higher education markets.

Founded in August 2011 by experienced software industry executives, Aegis Identity's enterprise software integrates key applications into a one identity/access platform that ensures the correct user is getting secure access to its authorized data anytime, anywhere and on any device. Aegis Identity is an education-focused Identity and Access Management ("IAM") solution provider in the market, currently managing Identities comprised of students and their families, faculty, alumni, and employees of schools that use IAM products.

Under the terms of the LOI, it is expected that Aegis Identity will be merged with Code Rebel, which will remain the surviving entity. It is contemplated that Aegis Identity's shareholders will own 60% of the issued and outstanding shares of Code Rebel, determined on a fully diluted basis, immediately following the merger. Code Rebel has also provided Aegis Identity with an unsecured loan of $500,000, which is evidenced by a promissory note of Aegis Identity that bears interest at the rate of 9% per annum, compounded annually. The loan will be discharged in the proposed merger. If the merger is not consummated, then the loan is due on June 30, 2016 or upon the occurrence of certain other specified events.
