CHANNELVIEW, Texas, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Exousia Advanced Materials, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: EXOU) - www.exousiacorp.com, a company that manufactures advanced eco-friendly industrial products for worldwide infrastructure applications announced today its acquisition of Evergreen Global Investments Ltd. ("Evergreen"). Evergreen is a privately-held company headquartered in New York City that operates several growth companies that are focused on clean energy and the use of renewable energy.
The acquisition price for Evergreen was $24 million for which Exousia issued 10 million shares of its Series A Preferred Stock, increasing Exousia's shareholders' equity by an equal amount. In the month of December 2009, the revenues of the Evergreen entities were approximately $5 million.
According to J. Wayne Rodrigue, president of Exousia, "this acquisition enables us to immediately improve the financial condition of our company by expanding our revenue base to more than $60 million in projected annual sales and adding additional capital to our balance sheet all within our core, eco-friendly business model."
Evergreen's business is providing energy products such as home heating oil to its thousands of customers located in the Northeastern part of the United States. One of Evergreen's companies, PriceEnergy (www.PriceEnergy.com) is an industry leading e-commerce based business selling energy products and services to its residential and commercial customers. Through the use of proprietary technology, customers can use the Internet to check their local current fuel oil price, place orders, arrange for payment, and manage deliveries of heating oil, diesel fuel, and other energy products 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. PriceEnergy is rapidly migrating its entire product base to include Green Energy attributes.
Additionally, Evergreen's companies own and operate an oil terminal in Rockaway, New Jersey with fuel storage tanks having an oil storage capacity of 75,000 barrels (3,150,000 gallons), office buildings, a fuel rack, trucks, machinery, equipment, and a large customer base.
In addition to its operations in the Northeastern part of the United States, Evergreen owns an interest in one of the country's largest biodiesel production facilities located in South Carolina.
"By integrating Evergreen and its Green Energy initiatives into Exousia, we can expand the sales of our eco-friendly industrial products into the Evergreen operational and distribution platform. This synergy, coupled with the improved projected cash flow, enabled us to structure what we believe is a highly capital efficient transaction that offers immediate financial benefits to Exousia and its shareholders. In our view, it is exceptional to be able to make an acquisition with so many strategic benefits under such favorable terms," Rodrigue said.
