Good afternoon

As an update to the Acqui-Hire transaction outlined below, I have highlighted specific background areas of interest for technology personnel in the New York City area.


1. Web engineers with experience in Javascript development like React, Angular.js and node.js
2. Backend engineers with experience in API development using languages like Python and Frameworks like Django
3. Data engineers with experience doing database development and including some big data capabilities
4. Operation engineers with experience using Amazon Web Services and enabling continuous integration and delivery for teams

Candidates for the Acqui-Hire transaction may be distressed or under-performing companies in your portfolio.

If there are any candidates, this may be a potential deal structure to recover some value from the assets and the key technology personnel would have a significant opportunity going forward, if qualified.

I am available to discuss.

As always, thank you for your courtesy in reviewing.
