Under terms of the purchase and reorganization plan, DPS will assume sole ownership of QPS. At the conclusion of the restructuring process and assuming full dilution of all outstanding warrants, the plan will provide DPS with full control of the new company...
"DPS's acquisition allows us to continue manufacturing our Que!-brand products and distribute them through the retail channel," said DPS CFO Rajeev Sharma, "It also enables us to continue providing customer and technical support.
"More important, it gives us the financial strength to move forward in developing our new generation of computer peripherals, especially those based on convergence technology, that continue the QPS tradition of offering leading edge products at an affordable price."
DPS plans to begin introducing its new products in the coming months.
QPS-brand products are available through retail stores, catalogs, e-tailers and other computer product suppliers.
