TAMPA, Florida, December 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
MagneGas Corporation ("MagneGas" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: MNGA), an award winning technology company that counts among its inventions a patented process that converts liquid waste into MagneGas2® fuel, today announced that it has hired a leading international law firm, Greenberg Traurig, LLP, to investigate the source of an article written by an anonymous short seller in the Company's stock, as disclosed in the article, as well as any affiliated parties. The website does not contain the article author's telephone or other contact information but does clearly state the author is a short seller. The article contains multiple instances of materially false and misleading information.
Ermanno Santilli, CEO of MagneGas Corporation, commented, "We were never contacted by the author prior to publication of the article, and considering this was posted anonymously, we believe the author, and possible affiliated parties, had a specific agenda in publishing this report. We can only surmise that this was a deliberate attempt to cause harm to the Company and its shareholders. Nevertheless, this is an exciting time in our company and we have been completely transparent, honest and accurate in our public reporting. We will not allow malicious and cowardly attacks like this to go unanswered."
About MagneGas Corporation
MagneGas® Corporation (MNGA). The Company owns a patented process that converts various liquid wastes into hydrogen based fuels. These fuels can be used as a replacement to natural gas or for metal cutting. The Company's testing has shown the fuels are faster, cleaner and more productive than other alternatives on the market. They are also cost effective and safe to use with little changeover costs. The Company currently sells MagneGas® into the metal working market as a replacement to acetylene.
The MagneGas(MNGA) fuel production systems can be set-up locally using various types of feedstock. The Company believes this flexibility can give them an advantage in the Government/Military marketplace as fuels can be manufactured on site from raw materials found locally worldwide and eliminates the time and expense of shipping to the specific military theater. The Company is planning to establish joint ventures with third parties to construct these supply facilities worldwide.
The Company also sells equipment for the sterilization of bio-contaminated liquid waste for various industrial and agricultural markets. In addition, the Company is developing a variety of ancillary uses for MagneGas® fuels utilizing its high flame temperature for co-combustion of hydrocarbon fuels and other advanced applications.
