ASCENT INDUSTRIES ENGAGES CLARUS SECURITIES
Ascent Industries Corp. has engaged Clarus Securities as financial adviser to explore and evaluate a broad range of strategic alternatives to strengthen its balance sheet and maximize the value of the company.
"While the company is focused first and foremost on remedying the situation with Health Canada, management believes that a review of strategic alternatives will allow it to make informed decisions about the company in the interests of all stakeholders," said Blair Jordan, interim chief executive officer.
There is no defined timeline for the company's strategic review. This review of strategic alternatives may result in a variety of outcomes or no outcome and there can be no assurance that the company will pursue or execute any specific action or transaction. The company does not intend to make any further announcements or comments regarding the review of strategic alternatives unless required by law.
