JBI Inc. Executes Letter of Intent to Acquire U.S. Air Filtration Company
NIAGARA FALLS, Ontario, Feb. 13, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JBI, Inc. (OTCBB: JBII) is pleased to announce that the Company has executed an LOI for its planned acquisition of a profitable U.S. air filtration and custom air ventilation company. The acquisition is anticipated to be officially consummated in the second quarter of 2010. This company is privately owned and the owners have requested that its name not be disclosed to the public until the Definitive Agreement is executed.
The acquisition is a high tech air filtration and custom air ventilation company that has a strong relationship with the US Army Corp of Engineers, numerous Federal agencies and the Health Care industry. They design and install customized, energy efficient air handling and air filtration systems. These systems are installed in some of the most sensitive Federal and Military buildings in the US. There are potential synergies for this business with P2O and intellectual property of JBI. In both 2008 and 2009, the company had approximately $15 million of revenues and was profitable.
John Bordynuik, JBI Inc. CEO and President, stated, "This is really a synergistic, value-added acquisition that truly complements our business model and corporate growth goals. In addition to our core product line, these products have very high growth potential, and excellent profit margins. The Company's IP is protected through a patent. Initially, we will utilize our media credits to launch an extensive public-awareness campaign to market our green product line to consumers and retailers in the United States, Canada, and Mexico."
JBI, Inc. is transitioning to become a global technology leader whose purpose is to mine data from JBI's large information archive, find under-productive entities to inject our superior proprietary technologies into, and benefit from increased productivity and profitability, beginning with Plastic2Oil. JBI has also acquired the following operations:
JAVACO, Inc. ("Javaco") is part of the Supplier Diversity Network, WBENC. JAVACO, Inc. currently distributes over 100 lines of equipment from fiber optic transmitters to RF connectors. To further enhance business in the United States, new distribution lines are frequently being added including a line of home theater and audio video products. Javaco will operate and manage the Company's Plastic2Oil sites in Mexico.
Pak-It, LLC ("Pak-It"): Using the patented Pak-It(TM) delivery system (liquid cleaner in a water soluble sachet) Pak-It can deliver glass cleaner, disinfectant, multi-purpose, and many more cleaning products (42 products currently) shipped in tiny packages of condensed cleaner (inside a 'dry' 1 quart container). This delivery method is "green" since it's fully biodegradable and saves thousands of dollars in shipping. The user simply adds water to the container without measuring or cutting the Pak-It. Large retailers and many national Building Service Contractors already using the product have documented significant cost savings from shipping, training, inventory control and space.
Accordingly, our revenue sources presently include (i) income from reading archived tapes (including microfiche) from clients such as NASA, (ii) income from the recently acquired JAVACO, Inc., (iii) income from the sale of Pak-It products, and bulk chemical facility which we realize beginning October 1, 2009, and (iv) from the anticipated commencement of operations in the first quarter of 2010 with Plastic2Oil, a process and service that converts plastic to fuel oil.
