MGT Capital Investments Inc. (OTCMKTS:MGTI) is a micro-cap player that has moved into the cybersecurity space as a relatively recent pivot. MGTI stock has shown some very interesting action of late, with an important pattern of behavior exhibited between 2/9/17 and 2/23/17 when it sat on a large accumulation bid that reeks of highly “knowledgeable” money in the tape. As far as recent announcements, two stand out.

First, the company announced that its Bitcoin Mining Pool is scheduled to be fully available to the Bitcoin network early in the second quarter of 2017. The stock has shown a powerful reaction that looks to be driven mostly by this announcement. In following days, the company also came out with news that it has wrapped up its merger process regarding a 46% equity interest in Demonsaw LLC. We will cover some details below, but first, let’s refresh ourselves with this company.

MGT Capital Investments Inc. (OTCMKTS:MGTI), as noted above, is in the process of acquiring a diverse portfolio of cyber security technologies and ramping up its Bitcoin mining operations in the state of Washington.

With cyber security industry pioneer, John McAfee, at its helm, MGT Capital is positioned to address various cyber threats through advanced protection technologies for mobile and personal tech devices, including tablets and smartphones.

The Company is currently in the process of acquiring D-Vasive, a provider of leading edge anti-spy software, and Demonsaw, a provider of a secure and anonymous file sharing software platform.

MGT Capital intends to change its corporate name to “John McAfee Global Technologies, Inc,” and has asserted its right to do by seeking a Declaratory Judgment in U.S. Federal Court, Southern District, NY.

As noted above, the company recently concluded its negotiations on the details of its interest in D-Vasive and Demonsaw.

As previously disclosed, MGT had entered into a revised asset purchase agreement to acquire D-Vasive, Inc., a maker of mobile communications privacy applications. As contemplated in this agreement, D-Vasive would have acquired Demonsaw, with MGT owning both companies. Despite stockholder approval in September, the entire transaction terminated because the critical condition of closing – approval by NYSE MKT – was not met. In recent months, MGT has tried without success to reach agreement among the various stakeholders of D-Vasive and Demonsaw with renegotiated terms.

So, rather than continue to mess with the complexity, the company has simply made a 46% equity interest investment in Demonsaw.

John McAfee, Executive Chairman of MGT stated, “Demonsaw is developing what might ultimately become Internet 2.0 and MGT will participate in this exciting market. We look forward to sharing in the success of Eijah’s forward thinking leadership.”

In terms of the Bitcoin announcement, John McAfee, Chief Executive Officer and Executive Chairman of MGT stated, “Our mining pool is a natural outgrowth of our investment in Blockchain technology as a foundation for future cybersecurity products. Large and respected Bitcoin mining operators will rapidly take over the enormous transaction processing requirements necessary for all companies to secure themselves in the near future. As a publicly-traded company, MGT leverages our unique opportunity to provide investors with a suitable proxy to participate in the profitable bitcoin mining space.”

Recent action has seen 62% piled on for shareholders of the listing during the trailing week, but this action is running counter to the larger trend in the name. This is emblematic of the stock. MGTI has a history of dramatic rallies. In addition, MGTI stock has benefitted from a jump in recent trading volume to the tune of just under 210% over what the stock has registered over the longer term.

It pays to take note of this fact given the stock’s limited trading float of under 26M shares. This type of thing is something to watch out for: a restricted trading float and a jump in trading volume can crimp supply and push share prices higher. Since we last covered the name, MGTI stock has moved 18.5%.

Earning a current market cap value of $35.5M, MGT Capital has a stash ($2.2M) of cash on the books, which is balanced by virtually no total current liabilities. MGTI is pulling in trailing 12-month revenues of $53K. However, the company is seeing declines on the top line on a quarterly y/y basis, with revenues falling at -41.1%. This may be a very interesting story and we will look forward to updating it again soon.
