HOUSTON, April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TexCom, Inc. (OTC Pink: TEXC)(the "Company" or "TexCom"), an environmental services company serving the oil and gas industry, today announced the sale of substantially all of the assets of MB Environmental Services, LLC ("MBES") for $15.8 million. TexCom owns 83.2% of MBES and will realize approximately $11 million from the sale, after income taxes. Texcom has also retained the working capital associated with MBES which should provide up to an additional $500,000 for the Company. The proceeds will be used to retire debt and fund the acquisition of other properties.
The sale of the property now frees Texcom of several contractual obligations that were associated with MBES and will allow the Company to pursue an aggressive growth strategy, which previously was severally restricted.
"TexCom is now free to expand and grow its oil and gas and NORM waste disposal operations, and in fact, is working on several targeted property acquisitions," stated Bob May, CEO and President. "While the MBES property has generated significant profits, we believe we can use the proceeds to acquire properties with better long term potential."
WoodRock & Co. and Rock House Capital Advisors acted as financial advisors to TexCom on the transaction.
