MassRoots, Inc. (“MassRoots” or the “Company”) (OTCPink:MSRT) is pleased release the following update on its expected acquisition of Empire Services, Inc. (“Empire”) and plans to meet the listing requirements and apply to list its shares of common stock on a national exchange.
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 it is in the best interests of our more than 30,000 shareholders to put MassRoots on the quickest possible path to a listing on a national exchange,” stated MassRoots Chief Executive Officer Isaac Dietrich. “At its core, MassRoots is a technology company and when we took a look at Empire, we saw an incredible opportunity to apply our knowledge and expertise to an often overlooked yet highly profitable industry. We believe the Empire acquisition will put MassRoots on a stable financial footing, with positive cashflows from operations, and will likely enable MassRoots to meet all the listing requirements of both the Nasdaq Capital Market and the NYSE American Market.”
“Over the coming weeks, we intend to expand MassRoots’ board of directors through the appointment of seasoned and diverse professionals to ensure we have independent directors who not only meet the requirements of a national exchange but also give confidence to institutions that we are establishing strong corporate governance,” stated Danny Meeks, the sole shareholder of Empire. “Upon closing of this transaction, we believe MassRoots will have one of the most compelling stories in the small cap market and we could not be more excited to get to work for all of MassRoots’ loyal and supportive shareholders.”
Upon closing of the merger, Mr. Meeks will join MassRoots’ Board of Directors as its Executive Chairman. Established in 2002, Empire operates 10 metal recycling facilities in Virginia and North Carolina and expects to continue expanding its footprint in the coming quarters. It has historically generated higher profit margins when market prices for metal rise.
