Ault Alliance, Inc. (NYSE American: AULT), a diversified holding company (“Ault Alliance,” or the “Company”) announced today that it has entered into a service agreement with Shareholder Intelligence Services, LLC (“ShareIntel”) to assist the Company to determine if there is illegal short selling activities in its common stock. ShareIntel will utilize its patented process called DRIL-Down™, a compliance driven service-as-a-software program designed for public companies to track stockholder ownership and monitor critical broker-dealer and stockholder movement, to investigate and report on potential illegal naked short selling activities of the Company’s stock. ShareIntel will aggregate and analyze repository data from reporting entities, broker-dealers and stockholders, enabling the Company to identify parties to possible aberrant or unusual trading activity and assist the Company to deploy corrective action steps to help curtail such activity.
“Based on the trading pattern of the stock, we are concerned that our company may have been the target of a market manipulation scheme involving illegal short selling of our stock over the past year, and we are committed to investigating and exposing any wrongdoing,” said Milton “Todd” Ault, III, the Executive Chairman of Ault Alliance. “By working with ShareIntel, we may find potential reporting anomalies among market makers, banks, broker-dealers and clearing firms, including efforts to artificially depress our market stock price. Investigating and attempting to remedy any wrongdoing would support our continuing commitment to protect our investors and maximize stockholder value. The Company believes such manipulation to be completely unacceptable, as it distorts the value of the targeted companies and negatively impacts the stockholders who have invested their hard-earned money.”
David Wenger, President and Chief Executive Officer of ShareIntel, stated, “We look forward to helping Ault Alliance identify parties that may be engaging in abusive and illegal naked short selling.”
