INSIDE Secure signs a binding agreement to sell its semiconductor business to Swiss cybersecurity expert WISeKey

Transaction expected to close in September 2016

Aix-en-Provence, France, August 2, 2016 – INSIDE Secure (Euronext: INSD), a leader in embedded security solutions for mobile and connected devices, announced today that it has executed a binding agreement to sell its semiconductor business to WISeKey International Holding Ltd, a Swiss cybersecurity company listed in Zurich (SIX Swiss Exchange: WIHN). 

This follows on from the May 19, 2016 announcement and represents the final stage in the process of repositioning INSIDE Secure around software security and technology licensing, to meet the needs of the rapidly expanding mobile payment and mobile banking markets and also provide embedded security technology licenses for Internet of Things (IoT) markets. 

The terms and conditions of the transaction are in line with those announced on May 19, 2016. Upon completion of the transaction, INSIDE Secure will receive CHF2 million in cash (net of transferred cash) plus bonds convertible into listed shares of WISeKey International Holding Ltd worth CHF11 million. 

The transaction is expected to close in September 2016 and is subject to customary closing conditions, and to the French finance ministry’s approval since it involves the acquisition of control by a foreign company of a business operating in a strategically important area (provision of cryptology capabilities and services).
