Ault Alliance, Inc. (NYSE American: AULT), a diversified holding company (“Ault Alliance,” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its indirect subsidiary, Circle 8 Crane Services LLC, a leading crane rental and lifting solutions provider (“Circle 8”), recently paid a cash dividend of $1.5 million to Ault Alliance.
Ault Alliance acquired the assets of Circle 8 in December 2022, and the cash dividend from Circle 8 to Ault Alliance has reinforced the Company’s financial position. The addition of Circle 8 to Ault Alliance’s business portfolio has produced positive results in less than nine months, a testament to the commitment and efficiency of Circle 8’s management team, whose performance has significantly exceeded Ault Alliance’s projections when it decided to make the acquisition.
Milton “Todd” Ault, III, the Company’s Executive Chairman, expressed his satisfaction with the results, stating, “We could not be more pleased with the acquisition of Circle 8. Its management team has performed exceedingly well to date. One of the most prominent features of our business model as a holding company consists of receiving dividends from the free cash flow of our portfolio companies, which Circle 8 has demonstrably proven capable of accomplishing.”
Mr. Ault further commented, “We greatly appreciate the return on investment delivered by Circle 8. It reinforces our business strategy of making investments in a diversity of industries and provides us the ability to, among other potential allocations of resources, make additional investments in promising opportunities to achieve strategic growth in the future.”
