Digital Power Corporation (NYSE American:DPW) (“Digital Power” or the “Company“), a company seeking to increase revenues through acquisitions and organic growth, announced that at its annual meeting that all 10 matters up for consideration by its shareholders were approved. Digital Power noted that one of the most significant proposals voted upon by its shareholders authorizes the reincorporation of the Company to the state of Delaware from California. The Company has achieved another milestone in its reorganization strategy, including the formal name change to DPW Holdings, Inc. which will be effective as of the close of business today. The stock symbol DPW on the NYSE American national securities exchange will be retained while the name change will be reflected over time.
“The ongoing transition to a business model and structure as a holding company will provide the opportunity to be more shareholder centric and incorporate financial sophistication to all elements of the Company. We look forward to leveraging the many years of experience our management team has in investing, mergers, divestitures, capital deployment, credit analysis and setting capital structures,” commented Milton “Todd” Ault, III, the Company’s Executive Chairman. “The Company now has the option to consider spinoffs, IPOs of its subsidiaries and other strategic transactions designed to maximize shareholder value and enhance the Company’s ability to raise the capital it will need to further its long-term objectives. Our focus for 2018 is to reward our shareholders and increase shareholder value as we continue to grow and expand the Company. We also are very committed to being transparent with our shareholders, investors and the public,” said Mr. Ault.
The Company reported today that during the current quarter it has experienced a significant improvement in its balance sheet and expects, among other improvements, that its December 31, 2017 balance sheet will reflect:
- Cash and marketable securities, which are classified as available-for-sale securities, of approximately $2.5 Million;

- A significant reduction in short-term debt during the month of December 2017 of approximately $4 million;
