New York, NY, September 14, 2017: Hilco Streambank (
), in a joint venture with Modern IP, LLC, has been retained by SofTech, Inc. to sell its stock ticker symbol, SOFT, as well as related IP assets including its trademark and domain name. A bid deadline has been set for October 18, 2017 at 5:00 PM (ET).
The offering presents a public company or pre-IPO company the unique opportunity to acquire an attractive stock ticker symbol.

The name is applicable to companies across major industries including technology, soft goods, pharmaceuticals, retail, apparel, home furnishings, water treatment, finance and food & beverage. The ticker symbol is currently registered on the NASDAQ exchange. Other assets included in the sale consist of the SofTech.com domain name and SofTech
trademark registered in the United States.
SofTech, Inc., headquartered in Lowell, MA, was founded in 1969 as one of the earliest software product and consulting companies in the U.S. After a leveraged buyout in 2011, SofTech focused its attention on its HomeView virtual home asset management system, re-branding the company as HomeView and divesting of its non-core assets. As a result, the SOFT ticker symbol and related IP are available. Additionally, the company is making its public shell including its significant net operating loss carryforwards (“NOLs”) available. The public shell may be a useful vehicle for a private company to become public through a reverse merger or to serve as a roll-up entity for an acquirer.
