TCM|Strategic Comments on its Agreement to Acquire $53.5 Million of Digimarc Corporation Common and Convertible Preferred Equity

CORAL GABLES, Fla., Sept. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- TCM|Strategic announced today it has agreed to acquire $53.5 million of common and convertible preferred equity in Digimarc Corporation (NASDAQ: DMRC).  For more details on the transaction, please see today's press release from Digimarc.

TCM|Strategic's decision to make this investment was the result of two conclusions:

  • The Legacy Business and the Growth Business are each worth more today than the current enterprise value of the entire company.
  • The Growth Business has not only the opportunity but also the high likelihood of being worth significantly more in the future.

For those interested, this deck contains detailed work in support of these points.

This financing provides Digimarc with enough capital to ensure the continued acceleration of growth in the Barcode business.  Furthermore, it should be sufficient to fund the company through profitability, even assuming the most conservative macro and micro scenarios. 

Therefore, we believe that the next time Digimarc accesses the equity market, it will be to reduce  rather than increase  shares outstanding.

As firm believers that no single group has a monopoly on good ideas, we welcome communication with all Digimarc stakeholders as we help guide the company toward the realization of this platform's tremendous value.  We can be reached via email at
