Voxtur Shareholders for Accountability File Information Document and Nominate Alternative Directors for Company’s Upcoming Annual and Special Meeting

Voxtur Shareholders for Accountability File Information Document and Nominate Alternative Directors for Company’s Upcoming Annual and Special Meeting

  • Shareholders holding approximately 19% of the outstanding Voxtur common shares express support for immediate board leadership change
  • Board leadership change is required to address value destruction and Voxtur’s anemic performance
  • Al Qureshi, Voxtur’s President of Capital Markets, to bring proven leadership track record and industry experience needed by Voxtur as new CEO
  • The Voxtur Shareholders for Accountability urge all shareholders to vote for its highly qualified Board nominees

PLYMOUTH, Minn., June 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ – A group of shareholders (the “Voxtur Shareholders for Accountability“, “We“, “Us“, or “Our“) of Voxtur Analytics Corp. (TSXV: VXTR) (OTCQB: VXTRF) (“Voxtur” or the “Company“), including Nicholas H. Smith, the former Chairman of Voxtur, announce that they are seeking to reconstitute the board of directors of Voxtur (the “Board“) at Voxtur’s Annual General and Special Meeting (the “AGSM“) scheduled to be held virtually at  https://virtualmeetings.tsxtrust.com/en/1654 (password: voxtur2024) on Friday, June 28, 2024 at 9:00 a.m. (Eastern Time). The Voxtur Shareholders for Accountability are nominating six highly qualified individuals at the AGSM.

The six nominees that the Voxtur Shareholders for Accountability are nominating are Nicholas H. Smith, Alan P. Qureshi, Chris B. Bixby, Jeffrey A. Hilligoss, Chad Neel and Thomas J. Holthus (collectively, the “Shareholder Nominees“). For additional details on the Shareholder Nominees, see “Information Concerning the Shareholder Nominees” below.

As a Voxtur shareholder, you can VOTE FOR the Shareholder Nominees using the form of proxy or voting instruction form that you received with your AGSM materials from the Company. You must act quickly and before the deadline of 9:00 a.m. (Eastern Time), on Wednesday, June 26, 2024 (or any earlier deadline indicated by your broker).

Please carefully read and follow the instructions below under the heading “How to Vote for the Shareholder Nominees” for more information about how to support the Shareholder Nominees.

The Time to Act is Now

The Voxtur Shareholders for Accountability have lost confidence in the Board and the current management team’s ability to execute the Company’s business plan for the benefit of shareholders. This is evidenced by a significant deterioration in financial performance and share price, the lack of market liquidity for the Company’s common shares and the absence of coherent strategic direction from management.

As a result, we believe the Board ought to immediately commence a strategic review process that will encompass an evaluation of the Company’s current strategic direction, operations, market valuation and capital structure. The strategic review process ought to consider appropriate strategic, business and financial alternatives for the Company, which may include, without limitation, a corporate sale, a merger or other business combination, a sale of all or a portion of the Company’s assets, strategic investment, or continuation as a standalone publicly traded company.

High Level Results Reflect the Symptoms

Voxtur’s current management team has had sufficient time to successfully execute the Company’s business plan but has failed to do so at the expense of shareholders. These failures have resulted in:

  • losses from continuing operations in each of the last five years, including a Q4 2023 adjusted EBITDA1 loss from continuing operations of approximately C$3.9 million and Q1 2024 adjusted EBITDA loss from continuing operations of C$665,000;
  • an approximate 95% decline in the price of the Company’s common shares from the peak price on April 18, 2022, to its closing price on May 17, 2024 (the record date for the AGSM);
  • approximately C$307 million in cumulative losses from 2019 to Q1 20242;
  • an approximate 83% decline in liquidity of the common shares from Q1 2021 to Q1 20243; and
  • “going concern” opinions from the Company’s auditor in each of the past two financial years.

The Company’s pattern of losses can continue no longer. Voxtur’s shareholders have a vote and we urge the shareholders to make their voice heard and to replace Voxtur’s current Board. In the interim, the Voxtur Shareholders for Accountability remain willing to engage directly and constructively with the Board to ensure a smooth transition after the AGSM.

Potential Causes of Voxtur’s Anemic Performance

1.      Voxtur lacks a coherent strategic plan.

Voxtur lacks a clear strategic plan, brand position and vision to execute and communicate to shareholders. In order to be successful, the Board and management must develop and execute a strategic plan and articulate the plan to the shareholders.

2.      Voxtur’s current management team lacks any material experience in the US residential mortgage market.

Not one of management’s Board nominees has any material expertise in a residential PropTech4 or FinTech5 domain areas. As these domains pose unique challenges, the Company requires experienced leadership to formulate a credible and cogent go-to-market strategy.

3.      Voxtur’s corporate structure is costly and inappropriate for the size of the underlying business.

For too long, the Board has presided over run-away costs at the corporate level, which have not yielded results for the Company or its shareholders. In fact, to pay for these costs, the Board has diluted Voxtur’s shareholders through equity raises. The Company’s bloated corporate cost structure must be reigned in to achieve positive results for its shareholders. Examples of such bloated costs include:

    • Annual base salary of Gary Yeoman, Interim Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of US$1,000,000 per his most recent employment agreement entered into on January 29, 2021 (Mr. Yeoman’s annual base salary under his previous employment agreement with Voxtur, entered into on April 2, 2018, was C$325,000);

    • Consulting fees paid to Yeoman & Company Paralegal Professional Corporation (“YCP“) based on a consulting agreement entered into between YCP and Voxtur (the “Consulting Agreement“) for approximately C$388,000. Two of the principals of YCP are the sons of Gary Yeoman. The term of the Consulting Agreement runs until December 2034; and

    • Payments of approximately C$462,750 in director and committee fees made over the last two fiscal years to two of Voxtur’s proposed independent directors.

The Shareholder Nominees have both the experience and a clear plan to address the urgent challenges that Voxtur faces head-on.

Proposed Remedies

1.      Install a Board and management team with expertise in the US residential mortgage market.

The majority of Voxtur’s clients and prospective clients conduct business within the United States. The Shareholder Nominees possess over 135 years of leadership experience in the US residential mortgage sector. This level of expertise is not mirrored by the current Board or management team. In recent years, Voxtur has witnessed significant turnover in its executive team and Board, including the departure of the CEO, CFO, CRO and COO, among others. This turnover suggests potential issues at the Board and/or management levels. It is imperative for Voxtur to urgently recruit and retain leaders who have the requisite experience, vision, and confidence to implement the necessary operational changes and mortgage-focused innovations for a prosperous future. The Shareholder Nominees embody these attributes and are ready to lead the execution.

With good corporate governance principles in mind, the Voxtur Shareholders for Accountability propose that Mr. Hilligoss serve as the Board’s independent Chair and Chair of the Audit Committee and Mr. Smith serve as Chair of the Nomination-Compensation and Governance Committee. Messrs. Smith and Bixby will join Mr. Hilligoss to form the Company’s Audit Committee and Messrs. Hilligoss and Bixby will join Mr. Smith to form the Nomination-Compensation and Governance Committee.

The Voxtur Shareholders for Accountability further seek to appoint Alan P. Qureshi, the Company’s current President of Capital Markets, as the Chief Executive Officer of the Company. As further described below, Mr. Qureshi amply possesses both the requisite leadership track record and industry experience to right the ship and to execute on a value-creating business plan for all Voxtur shareholders.

2.      Implement a long-term strategic plan for sustainable shareholder performance.

The Shareholder Nominees are committed to a long-term strategy, rather than a short-term trading approach in order to generate sustainable performance for all shareholders. The Shareholder Nominees will implement a clear strategy and vision for the future, which is expected to include stringent expense management and operational enhancements to improve profit margins. We anticipate a swift establishment of:

(i) a strategic framework for core and non-core assets;

(ii) an operational vision, which emphasizes the expansion of the Blue Water (as defined herein) franchise; and

(iii) a comprehensive operational plan aimed at managing expenses, optimizing the corporate structure, and maximizing shareholder returns.

3.      Conduct a strategic asset review to identify opportunities for value creation.

Drawing upon their extensive experience in the US mortgage market, the Shareholder Nominees will assess the Company’s core and non-core assets and explore strategic alternatives to enhance shareholder value.

4.      Enhance the transparency of financial reporting.

Voxtur’s quarterly reporting is superficial and lacks key insights to the Company’s business. For the Company’s stock price to recover, the Shareholder Nominees believe that investors require quality information (e.g., insight to the industry) so they can make informed business decisions. As a result, the Shareholder Nominees intend to implement business unit-specific reporting with consistent and transparent information, and to provide clear and regular reporting intervals.

5.      Optimize Voxtur’s corporate structure.

With trailing selling and business development, and general and administration expenses exceeding C$8.7 million for Q1 2024, Voxtur is projected to incur approximately C$35 million in annual expenses. These figures are unsustainable for a company of Voxtur’s scale and the Company’s financial statements indicate that it cannot maintain the current level of expenditures. While we acknowledge current management’s recognition of the Blue Water subsidiary’s growth potential, the execution in terms of reporting, expense management, and corporate overhead has been deficient, resulting in what appears to be an untenable financial burden for the Company. The Shareholder Nominees intend to promptly address excessive corporate spending, minimize bureaucracy, and execute a strategic vision. They also intend to leverage the existing management team from Blue Water (a subsidiary of the Company) and supplement that with external public company focused resources for hire in order to reduce costs dramatically and streamline results.

6.      Transformational Leadership for Voxtur

The necessary changes for Voxtur will not be without challenges. Transformation must originate from the top, starting with the Board leadership. This Board requires leaders who possess credibility, operational acumen, relevant industry experience, and a robust vision for the future, particularly during challenging times. Furthermore, it is essential for Voxtur’s employees to feel understood and for clients to be assured that their voices are being heard.

Messrs. Smith and Bixby both have extensive experience in the PropTech field and directly and indirectly hold and/or manage investments and positions with other PropTech ventures. Such investments and positions are with businesses that deal in mortgage servicing rights, including Candor Technology. The Shareholder Nominees believe that the prior and current PropTech experiences of Messrs. Smith and Bixby are complementary to, and do not conflict with, the proposed strategic review process of the Company since, among other things, total size of the mortgage market is vast in comparison to the market size of any one business in mortgage space and the prior PropTech experience gained by Messrs Smith and Bixby is immensely valuable to understand the competitive landscape faced by the Company and to shape the Company’s strategy going forward.

Additional information concerning the Shareholder Nominees can be found in an information document (the “Information Document“) filed by the Voxtur Shareholders for Accountability under the Company’s SEDAR+ profile at www.sedarplus.ca containing the disclosure required under section 9.2(6) of National Instrument 51-102 – Continuous Disclosure Obligations (“NI 51-102“) in respect of the Shareholder Nominees.
