Duane Spader, CEO of Verity Corp, said, "We are very excited to complete what we at Verity Corp consider our official roll out to financial markets. Ever since we merged with AquaLiv Technologies, we have been focused on informing our shareholders of Verity's future plans and executing those plans in a timely fashion. This latest corporate action is further evidence that we will continue keeping our shareholders informed and doing what we say we will do with the very best practices."
Spader added, "Part and parcel to sustainable and measurable growth is funding. Our goal is to judiciously, as well as prudently, raise the necessary capital to capture the market opportunities in our new initiatives in the South where we have two selling seasons with the two planting seasons."
Mr. Spader concluded, "We look forward to building shareholder value with our broad product and service mix including AquaLiv's water technology. We believe we have built the foundation required for financial flexibility and expanding our marketing reach in both the agriculture and investment communities. I personally would like to invite long time AQLV shareholders to share our vision of building a company committed to pioneering sustainable agriculture practices for healthy food production while also introducing our vision and values to future shareholders."
Verity Corp Business Plan
Verity Corp has grown from three employees in one facility in South Dakota with customers in three states to twenty-four employees in three facilities servicing customers in seven states (the added facilities are in Iowa and Georgia). Significantly, most southern states have two planting seasons for certain crops thereby doubling Verity's potential business in those regions.
The business model for Verity Corp enables the company to build its revenue base through recurring and growing revenues from a customer/farmer base which order Verity's products and services each planting season. With each passing year, more farmers return and increase the percentage of their overall acreage converted to using Verity sustainable agriculture solutions. Verity Corp is prepared to meet the rapidly growing needs of farmers that are interested in learning how to transition from conventional farming methods to healthy and natural agricultural techniques by incorporating a focus on the health of the soil through the use of natural fertilizers and revitalized water. This comprehensive selection of products and services differentiates Verity from other sustainable agricultural companies with the vertical integration of technologies such as revitalized water, non-GMO seeds and natural fertilizers that rebuild farm soil health.
The GMO labeling controversy which has been highlighted by Whole Foods' announcement that they will require their suppliers to label their ingredients as "GMO" or "non-GMO" virtually predicts that the non-GMO market will grow exponentially over the next few years--a market that Verity has developed significantly.
