Eco Ventures Plans 100% Upfront Acquisition of Energiepark Suptitz
GROVELAND, Fla., Oct. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Eco Ventures Group, Inc. (OTCBB: EVGI), an emerging producer of diversified sustainable alternative energy and resources, today announced that Energiepark Supitz GmbH ("EPS") has granted the Company the right to acquire 100 percent ownership of EPS in a single closing transaction. EVGI reported in an August 7, 8-K filing its Definitive Agreement to acquire 75 percent of EPS initially.
Under the terms of that original August Definitive Agreement, EVGI will acquire 75 percent of EPS in exchange for EVGI shares which, upon issuance, will constitute 11.4 million shares of EVGI common stock, and cash consideration of $3 million to be provided to EPS as working capital. EVGI has the option to acquire the remaining 25 percent of EPS at a price equal to 25 percent of the net value of the combined companies.
Under the terms of today's "100 percent" acquisition amendment, EPS is prepared to allow EVGI to acquire 100 percent of EPS and close entirely in exchange for: 1) An additional 3.6 million shares paid to the selling shareholders/management; 2) Raising $10 million, of which $7 million will be invested into EPS, and $3 million into EVGI U.S. operations, as working capital.
Mark Cox, EVGI President, said, "Based on the major new business initiatives actively under development at both companies, as well as EPS' record first-half of 2012 results and its positive outlook for the next three years, the value created by fully combining the two companies from the start is increasingly compelling.
"Following our presentation last month at the National Investment Banking Association (NIBA) Conference in New York, as well as our conversations with numerous alternative energy sector fund managers," Mr. Cox said, "we have received a number of indications of interest in the transaction. Accordingly, we plan to close the 100 percent acquisition of EPS with financing terms we can be confident ensures a highly accretive transaction immediately as well as in the years ahead."
Upon closing the 100 percent EPS acquisition, as it stands now EVGI would have approximately 41 million shares issued and outstanding, fully diluted. Several of the documents presented to investment bankers and fund managers are publicly available on the Company's website Investor's page at: http://is.gd/R5fQWB.
