LARGO, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 04/25/14 -- Garb Oil & Power Corporation (OTC Pink: GARB) (PINKSHEETS: GARB) -- The Company entered into a material contract, an Asset Purchase Agreement, on April 23, 2014 for the Company to purchase its first Florida production site. On April 24, 2014, the Company filed its OTC Markets Quarterly Report for the Quarter Ending March 31, 2014 that includes the Company's required filing of this material contract. (March 31, 2014 Quarterly Report - Financial Statements, Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements, Note 11 - Subsequent Events)
The Company entered into the Asset Purchase Agreement with a dissolving company that is in bankruptcy for an industrial manufacturing property and equipment that in very general terms includes an over 40,000 square foot warehouse located in the State of Florida on over 5 acres of land. The bankruptcy hearing pertaining to the sale is being held during next month, May 2014. The Company is required to await the bankruptcy hearing's results prior to further disclosure of the Asset Purchase Agreement. The Company's use of the industrial manufacturing property and equipment will be to manufacture wood pellets to be used as an alternate power fuel and for farm and agricultural applications. In addition, the manufacturing facility will utilize power saving technology including the use of recycled materials as fuel that will result in lower operating costs. Also, excess electricity will be generated that may be sold back to the power company, thereby the site generating an additional source of revenue.
Tammy Taylor, company Chief Executive Officer and President, stated, "The Quarterly Report, especially the Financial Statements and its Subsequent Events' Note, highlights the progress the management team has made to date while at the same time the Company has benefited from the management team's personal/financial sacrifice in order for the Company to achieve success for all shareholders. I am extremely confident in Garb's future and this has allowed me to invest into the company directly through one of my company's. I have also negotiated with a supportive shareholder which will result in the company finalizing an agreement to provide closing costs for asset purchases. The many hours spent since August last year in order to reorganize the Company to be OTC Pink Current, begin sales and have the Company in a position to be able to purchase its first industrial manufacturing plant site is a testament to the dedication of the entire reorganization team. In addition, the Company will continue to evaluate other potential asset acquisitions that relate to the Company's Business Model."
