November 9, 2022 at 6:30 AM EST

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 9, 2022-- BitNile Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: NILE), a diversified holding company (“BitNile” or the “Company”), announced that its subsidiary Giga-tronics Incorporated (“GIGA”), a publicly-traded holding company currently delivering solutions tailored and selected to enable mission-critical applications for customers in defense, aerospace, medical, and transportation sectors, intends to complete a distribution of approximately 7 million shares of GIGA’s common stock beneficially owned by BitNile (the “GIGA Shares”) as a dividend payable to the stockholders of BitNile common stock.

The distribution of the 7 million GIGA Shares will occur as soon as practicable after GIGA has obtained the requisite regulatory approvals therefor, and in compliance with US federal securities laws. BitNile anticipates that, upon completion of the distribution, the BitNile shareholders as of the record date to be in conjunction with the distribution, will be able to sell the GIGA Shares from time to time in either public or privately negotiated transactions.

On September 8, 2022, the Company announced the closing of a Share Exchange Agreement with BitNile, GIGA and Gresham Worldwide, Inc. (“Gresham”), providing for GIGA’s reverse acquisition of Gresham from BitNile. The transaction combined GIGA, a producer of sophisticated RADAR and electronic threat emulation systems and radio frequency filters, with Gresham, a global provider of proprietary, purpose-built electronic solutions to militaries and leading defense companies around the world in the areas of RF devices, power electronics, displays, automated test and missile launch. The companies expect the transaction to generate synergies that will enable them to significantly enhance their position in the rapidly growing market for electronic countermeasures and RF solutions; driven by a heightened global awareness of the importance of electromagnetic spectrum superiority. Combined, the companies have over 500 total customers, including more than 40 tier-1 defense industry prime contractors and 20 global defense ministry programs.

On September 9, 2022, the Company announced its intention to spin off its holdings in its various subsidiaries, including GIGA.
