ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., March 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Infrax Systems, Inc., (OTCBB: IFXY), a global provider of unified Smart Grid-related products and services for the Energy and Utility industries, announced today that its Board of Directors has approved the final "record date" and the adjusted "dividend rate" of the stock of Lockwood Technology Corporation to its shareholders. The record date for determining the holders of Infrax's common stock who will receive the dividend will be changed to April 19th, 2012. The dividend rate has been changed to 1 (one) share of Lockwood for every 10 (ten) shares of Infrax Systems. The change in the dividend rate was based on the completed internal valuation of Lockwood Technology and an estimated IPO price range of $1 to $3 per share (price not guaranteed; it is based on market condition, Lockwood's revenue, and investor demand). The change in the "record date" is due to the pending acquisition of SPC. As previously mentioned, upon the completion of the transaction, Infrax Systems will maintain a 30% ownership position in Lockwood Technology, further enhancing its asset base and allowing for continued shared development of new utility focused technology solutions. The actual distribution date of the dividend will be announced when Lockwood Technology gets clearance from SEC and FINRA.
