Digerati Technologies Terminates its Business Combination Agreement with Minority Equality Opportunities Acquisition, Inc.

SAN ANTONIO, June 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digerati Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: DTGI) (“Digerati” or the “Company”), a provider of cloud services specializing in UCaaS (Unified Communications as a Service) solutions for the small to medium-sized business (“SMB”) market, announced today that it has terminated its Business Combination Agreement (the “BCA”) with Minority Equality Opportunities Acquisition, Inc. (“MEOA”).

Arthur L. Smith, CEO of Digerati, commented, “Due to the circumstances created by the trading halt of MEOA’s stock and related Nasdaq listing application approval issues, we determined it was in the best interest of Digerati and its shareholders to terminate the BCA. Although we pursued this transaction for all the right reasons, including meeting certain corporate objectives, we reached a point where we had to do what was best for the Company and its shareholders. We need to move on, put this transaction and the associated resources and costs behind us, and continue building on the solid foundation we have constructed to date via our disciplined acquisition strategy.”

Smith, continued, “Our foundation consists of a great business built by an exceptional team that has executed almost flawlessly over the last six years by sourcing, qualifying, and closing on six (6) acquisitions and subsequently delivering on fundamental ROI and EBITDA objectives upon integration. We have a solid and proven business model that has taken us from $200,000 in annual revenue to over $32 million since its launch in FY2017. During the current 2023 fiscal year, we optimized our acquisition platform that was built for scaling organically and via mergers and acquisitions. At this point, we are eager to return to acquisition mode and pursue strategic opportunities that have been on hold pending the closing of the business combination with MEOA.”
