NEPTUNE, N.J., April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sterling Consolidated Corp. ( OTCBB: STCC), a leading supplier of hydraulic and pneumatic seals to the automotive and industrial marketplace, is pleased to announce shares of its common stock have commenced trading on the Over-The-Counter Bulletin Board market under the ticker symbol STCC.
Additionally, the company issued the following letter to shareholders:
Today is an exciting and important day for our company. After more than 40 years of providing superior service to our automotive and industrial customers, we are now a public company. Through this new public vehicle, we are perfectly positioned to build upon our history of organic growth and consistent profitability by pursuing an aggressive acquisition strategy that draws upon our industry expertise and logistical advantage.
The multi-billion dollar market for hydraulic and pneumatic seals is highly-fragmented and ripe for consolidation. Our acquisition strategy is opportunistic and focused on companies with generational changes of ownership where we can provide investment capital for growth or leverage our operation capabilities to drive value for all stakeholders. Our deep bench of talent, core knowledge and industry-leading expertise makes Sterling an excellent partner for aging or opportunistic business owners that are seeking an exit strategy or business combination that can enhance their return, accelerate future growth or drive greater profitability.
In the months ahead, we will be aggressively pursuing a number of acquisition targets which we have previously identified. Furthermore, we will be creating an acquisition advisory board to assist us with identifying, examining and vetting potential targets as well as ensuring that our due diligence is comprehensive and precise.
While strategic acquisition will be the means by which we accelerate growth for years to come, we remain steadfast in our commitment to organic growth and consistent profitability. The combination of strong performance in our existing business and careful, yet aggressive execution of our external growth strategy will enable us to maximize value for shareholders today and in the future.
On behalf of the entire Sterling Consolidated Corporation and our Board of Directors, I would like to offer a heartfelt "Thank You" to our loyal employees, customers and shareholders for their continued support.
