Cyren (NASDAQ:CYRN) stock is rising after signing a letter of intent for the sale of some assets to Opin Kerfi.

According to a press release, Cyren is planning to sell Iceland-based assets connected to its anti-malware business. That includes its products, technology and related intellectual property (IP). The contract is contingent on the signing of a definitive agreement and other factors.

What’s not made clear in the latest news release is how much Cyren is selling these assets for. The price remains unknown, but we do know the reason for the sale. Cyren notes it comes after the company underwent an almost total global workforce reduction to save on operating costs.

Opin Kerfi’s acquisition of the assets will also see it work alongside former Cyren employees. These employees will continue to support the products with further development and support services.

Investors will also note the agreement may need approval from a court if the company seeks insolvency protection. Cyren warns this is expected in the same announcement covering the asset sale intention.
