Viper Networks (PINK:VPER) Acquires 30% of Aequitas Energy

Viper Networks (PINK:VPER) today announced they have agreed to a 30% stake in Aequitas Energy. This comes after this past weekend’s announcement that both Viper Networks and Aequitas Energy were working out the final agreement.  Terms of the deal include a $1 million investment into Aequitas Energy this year.  A $500,000 payment is expected within the next 20 days while the other $500,000 payment is expected no later than October 31st, 2012.

VPER’s investment assures a 30% stake in the energy reseller company Aequitas Energy.  It also aligns them for an even larger investment opportunity and ownership share in 2013 if Viper Networks goes that route.  Also, Viper Networks receives one seat at the board of directors of Aequitas Energy along with rights for even additional seats based on ownership percentages of other owner representation.  One additional aspect of the deal allows the President of Viper Networks to work closely with Aequitas Energy’s management with focus on their IT department.
