Integrated Computing Engines, Inc.

Division: Phoenix Capital Resources, Phoenix Management Services


Client

Integrated Computing Engines, Inc. was a $15 million developer of computerized special effects headquartered in Waltham, MA.

Problem

The Company had raised more than $30 million from several private equity investors, who had lost confidence in the CFO and were concerned about the continued cash burn and exit strategy.

Solution

Phoenix Management assumed the role of CFO, migrated to a new contract manufacturer that reduced costs while improving quality, restructured several licensing agreements, and revamped the incentive compensation program, bringing the Company to a cash flow neutral status. Phoenix then structured the sale of ICE’s streaming media technology to Anystream, Inc., a newly capitalized entity, and negotiated the sale of its “legacy” business to a publicly traded entity, resulting in a return to its shareholders that exceeded their expectations. Anystream remains a leader in providing enterprise-class platforms for the automated production and distribution of streaming media.
