MassRoots, Inc. (“MassRoots” or the “Company”) (OTCPink:MSRT) is pleased to report that Empire Services, Inc. (“Empire”) recently entered into an agreement to acquire an additional metal recycling facility in Virginia. This is the first of several independent metal recycling facilities Empire plans to roll-up in the coming weeks to aggressively expand its footprint.
MassRoots recently entered into a Letter of Intent to acquire Empire, which is expected to result in MassRoots generating significant revenues and positive cashflows from operations. Upon closing of the Empire acquisition, the Company intends to apply to uplist to the Nasdaq Capital Market or the NYSE American Market, which MassRoots believes would result in a significant increase in visibility, liquidity, and institutional interest for its stock.
“We believe that the roll-up of independent, profitable metal recycling facilities will not only grow Empire’s revenues but could lead to greater profit margins through economies of scale,” stated Danny Meeks, Chairman of MassRoots. “We’ve been operating metal recycling facilities since 2002 and our playbook has thrived through nearly every economic climate and a global pandemic. Our expansion, including the planned acquisition of this additional facility, has historically been funded primarily by our operating cashflows. By merging Empire with MassRoots, we believe we will have greater access to capital to aggressively expand our business and create value for our shareholders.”
Isaac Dietrich, Chief Executive Officer of MassRoots added, “The technology solutions we’ve implemented for Empire – a cloud-based ERP system, a corporate website with live metal prices, and an online junk car purchasing platform – have already resulted in organic revenue growth and cost savings through operating efficiencies. The planned closing of the Empire acquisition is proceeding on schedule and I believe it will be transformative for the more than 30,000 loyal and supportive MassRoots shareholders.”
Established in 2002, Empire currently operates 10 metal recycling facilities in Virginia and North Carolina and expects to continue expanding its footprint in the coming weeks. It has historically generated higher profit margins when market prices for metal rise.
