WPCS International Incorporated (NASDAQ: WPCS), which specializes in contracting services for communications infrastructure and the development of a Bitcoin trading platform, today announced that it has entered into an asset purchase agreement with EC Company ("EC") for approximately $2.7 million.

According to Interim CEO Sebastian Giordano,

"We are pleased to enter into this agreement to sell the Seattle Operations, which will provide additional liquidity and working capital of approximately $2 million to the Company. We remain focused on stabilizing cash flow and restructuring our debt while remaining opportunistic about non-dilutive transactions such as this with EC. We will continue to improve our remaining operations and reduce corporate overhead while we move closer towards monetizing the BTX trading platform."
