Purchase order was secured through Aurora’s expanded operations as a result of its recently announced asset purchase agreement with Atrion Communication, Inc.
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA—Plurilock Security Inc. (TSXV: PLUR) (OTCQB: PLCKF) and related subsidiaries (“Plurilock” or the “Company”), an identity-centric cybersecurity solutions provider for workforces, is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Aurora Systems Consulting, Inc. (“Aurora”), has received a US$2.8 million 3-year purchase order from a leading U.S. food, facilities and uniform services provider (the “Customer”).
According to the terms of the order, Aurora will provide the Customer with Fortinet’s global firewall solutions. This order includes a fixed renewal price and enables the Customer to make a total of three annualized payments. In addition, this order offers up-selling opportunities as the Customer can purchase up to 15% of additional equipment over the 3-year period.
The purchase order was secured through Aurora’s expanded operations as a result of its acquisition of certain assets and business of Atrion Communications, Inc. (“Atrion”), which was previously announced on September 26, 2022.
“We are delighted to receive this multi-year purchase order from a top-tier U.S. customer, which bodes well for our sales pipeline,” said Ian L. Paterson, CEO of Plurilock. “This order was received as a result of Aurora’s asset purchase agreement with Atrion, which has enabled Plurilock to expand its customer base across the East Coast of the United States. Moving forward, we intend to not only secure new clients through Aurora but also, continue capitalizing on new cross-selling opportunities for our high-margin proprietary software solutions.”
The Company has entered into an amended and restated consulting agreement with a strategic consultant (the “Consultant”) whereby the Company has agreed to pay the Consultant a fee (the “Fee”) of $30,000 for services provided by the Consultant to the Company in connection with the Atrion acquisition. The Company intends to settle the Fee part in cash and common shares of the Company, whereby the Company will issue to the Consultant 78,947 common shares of the Company (the “Consulting Shares”) at a deemed price of $0.19 per Consulting Share. The issuance of the Consulting Shares is subject to TSXV approval.
