Financial services player Diverger (ASX:DVR) has today revealed it will acquire 35% of GPS Wealth’s McGregor Wealth Management (MWM) for an initial $740k.
MWM is headed by Rob McGregor, a co-founder of GPS Wealth, and specifically markets itself as a retirement financial advisory service.
The entity is legally allowed to operate in Australia under an active AFSL.
Diveger notes today the acquisition underpins its desire to shift into developing other companies.
Diveger will provide support to MWM over the coming years as it builds up from here and earns more revenue.
All things going to plan, the equity interest allows Diverger to guarantee its delivery of recurring cash dividends in a not too distant future.
Notably, Diverger expects to make $250k per annum in revenue through MWMas its 35% share of a larger $700k total.
Diverger is a microcap at $32m, and so is Centrepoint, only slightly higher at $43m.
The $64m offer reflected a value above the CAF share price in late June, however, Centrepoint’s board has recently rejected the offer.
The two entities continue to negotiate, and investors are just going to have to wait to see what falls out of the woodwork.
If successful, the takeover will form a larger entity worth some $100m with a superior operational scale.
