The company noted numerous factors in approving the deal, including that it would likely have difficulty raising additional financing and would have limited growth opportunities and limited resources to operate the business and invest in its infrastructure.
In addition, ProPhotonix told investors that due to the illiquidity of the company's shares, it would be difficult for shareholders seeking to liquidate them to do so effectively, if at all.
