The company netted cash of $950,000, excluding the $110,000 escrowed funds and closing costs.

“We are pleased that we were able to divest our Linkstar operation,” said Dennis Raefield, chief executive officer and president of Mace. “The completion of this sale of non-core assets is one of the final steps towards our goal of becoming a security-focused company.”
