Randy Uglem Appointed CEO of Lendway Inc. in Connection with Pivot to Non-Bank Lending

MINNEAPOLIS, MN / August 4, 2023 / Lendway, Inc. (formerly, Insignia Systems, Inc.) (NASDAQ:LDWY) (the “Company”) has closed the previously announced sale of its in-store marketing business to an affiliate of Park Printing for an aggregate cash purchase price of $3.5 million, subject to an escrow and certain post-closing adjustments. Effective August 4, 2023, the Company has changed its name to Lendway, Inc. and the new ticker symbol “LDWY” as it focuses on building a scalable non-bank lending platform. As previously disclosed, the company’s mission will be to create exceptional financing solutions and connect borrowers with competitive funding choices.

“This transaction is a significant milestone for our organization that we have been diligently working on as the Company explores strategic alternatives,” the Company’s outgoing President and CEO, Kristine Glancy commented. “Our priority has been to deliver value to our shareholders. Selling our in-store marketing assets for cash and pivoting to our new non-bank lending platform allows us to continue to do so. I am excited that most of our employees will make the transition over to the Park Printing family, making this a seamless transaction for the affected employees, vendors, and clients. I am proud of what we accomplished together and wish all of our team the best in their future endeavors.”

“Park Printing is thrilled to join forces with the Insignia Systems in-store marketing business to solidify our longstanding partnership and further continued growth together. Combining best practices and capitalizing on synergies is just the beginning of what we believe to be a very successful, well-rounded organization. Both businesses have shared similar values and goals which creates an ideal path forward and one that will bring value to clients, vendors, and employees,” Park Printing Co-Owner Tim Koloski commented.

Reflecting the Company’s transition to non-bank lending, Randy Uglem was promoted to President and CEO effective August 4, 2023. “I’m thrilled about my new leadership role at Lendway, where we’re dedicated to responsible lending,” says Mr. Uglem. “With our lending experience, we take pride in crafting customized financing solutions to support our clients’ aspirations. Our approach involves fostering long-term collaborative relationships with clients, ensuring our vested interests in their success. Initially, our target geography is Minnesota and nearby states.”

The newly elected Chair of the Company’s Board of Directors, Mark Jundt, commented: “Closing the chapter on our in-store marketing business is not the end, but the beginning of Lendway, ushering in a new journey towards a world of significant non-bank lending possibilities for the Company. Our heartfelt thanks to Kristine for her stewardship and invaluable contributions over the years. With Randy as our new CEO, we look forward to propelling the business forward and delivering enhanced stockholder value.”
