Inventergy's Chief Executive Officer Joe Beyers commented, "2016 was a transitional year for the Company as we made strategic initiatives to position our business for long-term growth. We established Inventergy Innovations as the cornerstone of our new model going forward, and entered into seven agreements with technology partners looking to tap into our unique IP monetization investment network. Also in 2016, we signed a restructuring agreement with DBD Credit Funding, LLC ("DBD"), setting the stage for a substantially debt-free balance sheet. Under this agreement, we are contributing our portfolio of 740 telecommunications patents to a special purpose entity, called INVT SPE LLC, which will be managed and controlled by DBD and from which Inventergy will share in residual patent monetization revenues, after contractual and priority payments as called for under the agreement. We are excited by what the future holds and will continue working diligently to advance our strategic roadmap and drive value for our shareholders."
