“On September 21, NXTD announced that it planned to separate its payments division (as well as its authentication and credential management business) from its healthcare division in a tax-free spin-off that it expects to close by November 15. The intention is to create two pure-play companies, and thereby unlock shareholder value. Current NXTD CEO Gino Pereira will remain CEO of NXDT (containing the healthcare division), and current NXTD COO Michael Orlando will be CEO of the new (as-yet unnamed) company (containing the payments division).”
