FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Dec. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LMP Automotive Holdings, Inc. (“LMP” or the “Company”), an e-commerce and facilities-based automotive retailer in the United States, today announced it has closed on the sale of its KIA dealerships in Port Charlotte, FL and Cape Coral, FL to Morgan Auto Group and provided a corporate update.
Additionally, LMP has signed definitive agreements this month to sell its Subaru and Kia dealerships in Beckley, WV. with an expected closing date in March of 2023. The company is marketing its two remaining Chevrolet and GMC - Buick dealerships in Beckley, WV., along with its associated real estate and will pursue entering into sale agreements in connection with these assets.
The Company further announced that it is continuing to move forward with the Plan of Liquidation allowing the Company to sell all of the Company’s assets, distribute the net proceeds to stockholders and dissolve the Company. As part of the Company’s liquidation plan, LMP intends to make a partial distribution to the shareholders of record beginning in January 2023. The Company will announce the amounts and shareholders of record date shortly.
“The Board and the management team all believe that, given the diversified nature of our portfolio, pursuing multiple transactions with different potential buyers for assets or groups of assets presents the best opportunity to maximize stockholder value as well as to maximize the net proceeds to be distributed to shareholders,” said Sam Tawfik, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman.
