Voltari Corp (NASDAQ:VLTC) has been moving up steadily in recent weeks since a brief dip below the $3.50 mark. The stock is an Investor’s favorite that was at the top of everyone’s watch lists last year when it skyrocketed from $0.6302 to $21.75 highs.
The run on VLTC was sparked by billionaire investor Carl Icahn increasing his ownership in the Company to 52.3% or 4.74 million shares of the 9 million total float, as well as nearly all of the company’s preferred shares.
Voltari Corp (NASDAQ:VLTC) empowers its customers to maximize the reach and economic potential of the mobile ecosystem through the delivery of relevance-driven merchandising, digital marketing and advertising solutions, primarily over smartphones and other mobile devices.
The Company makes use of advanced predictive analytics capabilities and real-time data management as well as audience targeting services provided by third parties to deliver the right content to the right person at the right time.
Voltari works as an intermediary in mobile advertising; advertisers pay VLTC to deliver their ads to mobile users and the Company pays website and mobile application owners for the use of its ad space. VLTC seems to be quickly gaining traction with the Company announcing 39% growth in revenues for 2014.
Carl Icahn initially bought a $50 million stake in VLTC predecessor Motricity in 2007, the previous incarnation of Voltari before the reorganization and disposal of most of its assets. His son Brett Icahn and his son-in-law Hunter C. Gary sit on Voltari’s Board of Directors.
VLTC most valuable asset could be the accumulated $410.3 million in federal and $67.5 million in state net operating loss carry forwards. This translates to $187 million in deferred tax assets, which are fully offset by a valuation allowance, because management estimates that the realization of these benefits cannot be reasonably assured before they expire.

According to Seeking Alpha author Edward Vranic, CFA Voltari’s Deferred Tax Assets Make It A Buyout Target For A Profitable Related Company. he says ”As a majority common stock shareholder, Carl Icahn can compel the company to sell itself to a profitable industry competitor for the purpose of realizing these assets. Voltari has preferred shares that have a total redemption value of $41.2 million, of which Icahn owns 95%. He could either wait until the company becomes sufficiently profitable to pay preferred dividends on the stock, or he could get an immediate pay back upon an acquisition event.”
