EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CCA Industries, Inc. (NYSE MKT: "CAW") announced today that it has sold its weight loss business, marketed under the Mega-T brand, to a group formed by Casla Partners Capital Fund I, LP.
Under the terms of the sale, the purchaser received all inventory, trademarks and other intellectual property rights related to the brand in exchange for assuming pre-closing liabilities for returns, markdowns and co-operative advertising deductions by the retailers up to a cap of $2,250,000. The Company does not believe that these pre-closing liabilities will exceed the $2,250,000 cap.
Richard Kornhauser, Chief Executive Officer and President of CCA commented, "The sale of the Mega-T brand represents an important step in strengthening our Company's future performance by enabling us to focus resources behind our five core brands: Bikini Zone, Nutra Nail Treatments, Plus White, Scar Zone, and Sudden Change. This transaction also relieves the Company of a significant financial liability and allows the Company to better support its brand advertising program to deliver new sales and profits." Mr. Kornhauser added, "We believe that Mega-T is in the hands of capable and experienced weight loss category managers and we wish them the very best in their future endeavors."
"Casla is excited to add the Mega-T brand to its growing portfolio of investments, an acquisition that builds on the firm's demonstrated core competency of acquiring, integrating, and growing high equity businesses," said Jared Rochwerg, a partner of Casla. "Mega-T possesses strong brand equity and consumer awareness, while the efficacy of its products contribute to a healthy and active lifestyle. With the firm's proven operational and marketing expertise in the space, Casla is the optimal partner to support Mega-T in realizing its growth potential," added Mr. Rochwerg.

If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud?

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
