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.

“Over the coming weeks, we plan to aggressively expand Empire’s footprint through the roll-up of independent, profitable metal recycling facilities,” stated Danny Meeks, Chairman of MassRoots. “With inflationary pressures continuing to increase and unabating demand for metals independent of a potential infrastructure investment package, we believe there will be a robust market for metals for the foreseeable future. These are the market conditions in which Empire thrives and has historically generated the highest revenues and profit margins.”

Isaac Dietrich, Chief Executive Officer of MassRoots added, “We have implemented several technology solutions that have already increased metal volumes and operating efficiencies at Empire’s existing facilities. These include a cloud-based ERP system, a corporate website with live metal prices, and in the very near future, an instant online quoting system for people looking to sell their junk cars. The planned closing of the Empire acquisition is proceeding on schedule and I believe will be transformative for the more than 30,000 loyal and supportive MassRoots shareholders.”

Established in 2002, Empire 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.
