We expect that this divestiture will net the Company approximately $1.8 million in cash upon closing. Together with the expected sale of our Seattle operations, these transactions would provide the Company with almost $4 million in working capital. As part of our ongoing restructuring, management has aggressively pursued monetizing certain of its non-core assets in an effort to provide additional working capital necessary for bolstering our profitable Suisun City contracting operation and for fueling the growth of our BTX Trader, LLC line of business. We remain focused on this new initiative and are encouraged by the growth we are witnessing in the digital currency industry as its global acceptance continues to expand."
