NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 01/22/08 -- Strategic Environmental & Energy Resources, Inc. ("Strategic") (PINKSHEETS: SENR), formerly Satellite Organizing Solutions, Inc., a Nevada corporation and portfolio company of Infinity Capital Group, Inc., announced today that it closed the acquisition of all the issued and outstanding interest of REGS, LLC ("REGS"), a leading provider of technology-based industrial services, and Tactical Cleaning Company, LLC ("Tactical"), a dedicated fixed and mobile railcar and tanker truck cleaning company, both Colorado limited liability companies.
Pursuant to the acquisition, the interest holders of REGS and Tactical allowed their interests to be acquired for 18,282,630 restricted shares of Strategic common stock ("Acquisition Shares"). The acquisition will be accounted for under the reverse acquisition accounting rules. As part of the acquisition, the management team of REGS became the directors and officers of Strategic, and Greg Laborde, former president and sole director, resigned.
Prior to the completion of the transaction, a reverse stock split of Strategic common stock was consummated on a one-for-four basis whereby each four (4) outstanding shares of Strategic common stock was converted into one (1) share. There are currently a total of 19,159,443 common shares issued and outstanding, including 876,813 shares held by existing shareholders of Strategic prior to the closing.
J. John Combs III, the newly elected president of Strategic, said, "We are very pleased to conclude our going-public transaction and turned away many suitors before we found Infinity Capital. The Company is now in a position to aggressively move forward with its business plan of revenue growth, expansion, and vertical integration through acquisitions in a market that is experiencing unprecedented revenue and earnings."
Focusing solely on its Rocky Mountain regional operations, REGS has nearly tripled its personnel base and revenue over the last four years. "REGS has achieved its recent growth using internally generated cash without the benefit of any significant growth capital," stated Mike Cardillo, REGS' founder and president. "As a result, we've been forced to pass up many large and potentially lucrative projects. Our transition to being owned by a public company, coupled with a stronger balance sheet, gives us the ability to operate more efficiently and pursue many available opportunities to accelerate our growth and improve profitability. We intend to move forward aggressively in opening additional industrial service offices in markets many times the size of our current, more regional markets."
Tactical's rail opportunities are equally exciting in a market space that is also realizing remarkable revenues and profits in recent years. The rail company has completed two new offices from the ground up in the last three years with two additional scheduled for completion in the next several months. Combs explained, "Tactical's newly formed partnerships will enable the rail operation to complete these cleaning facilities ahead of schedule and open new, additional full-service facilities in strategic locations across the United States. We have worked diligently for two years; securing short line rail leases in high-traffic regions, contracting with large and small rail partners, and employing experienced management to be prepared for this closing." Tactical should have at least four facilities opened by year-end, each exceeding $1.0 million of high-margin revenue on an annualized basis.
Combs said Strategic and its subsidiaries expect to develop several significant, complementary business partnerships, both domestic and international, in the 2008-2009 time frame, but did not provide specific information about M&A activity currently in progress.
