FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEExhibit 99.1

 

VOXX INTERNATIONAL CORPORATION CLOSES ON SALE OF ITS PULHEIM REAL ESTATE AND WILL CONTINUE TO OPERATE ITS GERMAN ACCESSORIES BUSINESS

 

ORLANDO, FL. – October 2, 2019 — VOXX International Corporation (NASDAQ: VOXX), a leading manufacturer and distributor of automotive and consumer technologies for global markets, announced today that on September 30, 2019, it closed on the sale of its Pulheim real estate and received net proceeds of approximately $9.7 million (based on the Euro to US dollar conversion rate at that time) after payment of the outstanding mortgage and transactional costs.

 

Additionally, on September 30, 2019, VOXX received a notice of rescission from HF Company with respect to its previously announced definitive agreement to sell VOXX German Accessory Holdings GmbH.

 

The Company previously announced on June 12, 2019 that it had reached a definitive agreement to sell VOXX German Accessory Holdings GmbH, which comprised the operations of Oehlbach Kabel GmbH (“Oehlbach”) and Schwaiger GmbH (“Schwaiger”) to HF Company for approximately $19.0 million, based on the Euro to US dollar conversion at that time.

 

The notice of rescission received by the Company was due to HF Company’s inability to secure bank financing for the implementation of the transaction. As such, VOXX International Corporation will retain the Oehlbach and Schwaiger operations and will continue to market and distribute their diverse and innovative accessory offerings. Further, the Company believes that based on the changes previously announced to realign these units into one operating entity, it will be in a stronger position to improve bottom-line performance of an already profitable unit. Additionally, the rescission notice received includes the purchase option by VOXX German Holdings GmbH to HF Company relating to the real estate leased by Schwaiger.

 

Pat Lavelle, President and Chief Executive Officer of VOXX International Corporation, stated, “We are pleased to close on the sale of our real property in Pulheim and strengthen our balance sheet. We took action in fiscal 2019 to reorganize our international business and consolidate the operations of Schwaiger and Oehlbach into one operating entity. While the proposed accessories transaction would have further strengthened our balance sheet, we are satisfied to keep these strong European brands as they have been consistent earnings contributors in the past, and we expect that will continue in the future. Our strategy to potentially divest and acquire assets remains intact and our #1 focus remains to position VOXX for improved and sustainable profitability in the years ahead.”
