("REVI") has acquired the independent energy investment company, Global Energy Management Ltd., ("GEM"). GEM was formed in 2012 to participate in the global energy marketplace through the acquisition and exploration of oil and gas leases as well as the development, acquisition and operation of electrical generation and distribution facilities.
The GEM acquisition, valued at $10 million, brings to Resource Ventures several projects that are in early to late stage negotiations, planning or development, including the development of plans for a 200MW power plant in Africa.
The plans for the 200MW power generating facility include the design, staged construction and operation of four 50MW turbine generator sets capable of utilizing natural gas, conventional diesel, bio diesel or any combination of the three fuels. Each generator set, when in operation, would be expected to provide GEM with annual revenue of over $50 million (EBITDA), resulting in the completed project having a third party valuation in excess of $380 million.
Commented President Bob Thompson, "The acquisition of Global Energy Management is a great first step for Resource Ventures in the implementation of our strategic vision. GEM is already in the development stage of a major project and has begun negotiations or planning on other projects.
