DURHAM, N.C., Oct. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- A spokesperson for Greg E. Lindberg today said that contrary to media reports, the bankruptcy filing of Agera Energy, LLC is not a sign of nor will it cause financial stress at companies owned by Greg Lindberg's main holding company Academy Association, Inc.
Agera was not an acquisition that Mr. Lindberg's investment team sought out. The investment stake in Agera was inherited as part of an acquisition of a Bermuda insurance company.
Mr. Lindberg and his affiliates invested over $100 million in Agera and the decision to no longer support the investment was made with full approval of insurance regulators.
Mr. Lindberg's main holding company, Academy Association, Inc., maintains strong levels of equity. On a tax basis, Academy Association, Inc. has over $4 billion of book equity, as of 12-31-18, and had over $77 million in net income on a tax basis in 2018.
Mr. Lindberg's businesses are forecasting close to $300 million in EBITDA for 2020. Mr. Lindberg's investments in healthcare technology, healthcare services, B2B software, and unified communications as a service (UCaaS), and other high barrier to entry, high-recurring revenue businesses are performing well.
