Evolution Fuels: Strategic Initiatives
Evolution Fuels, Inc. announces management's goal of uplisting to the OTCQX in conjunction with a series of strategic initiatives to increase liquidity of common stock and reward existing shareholders.
The Company will be executing a dividend of common stock of Evolution Resources, Inc. (OTCBB:EVLN - News) ("Evolution Resources" or "EVLN"), a public company of which Evolution Fuels owns common shares, in addition to a 1-1 common stock dividend of Evolution Fuels to the Company's shareholders. These dividends are being announced in conjunction with a 1-for-600 reverse split of the Company's common stock effective as of Friday, November 27, 2009.
In relation to the reverse stock split, Evolution Fuels' trading symbol has been changed from (Pink Sheets:EVFL - News) to (Pink Sheets:EVFN - News) and its common stock trades under a new CUSIP No., 30049F205.
Any shareholders of the Company owning more than 1,000 shares -- post reverse stock split -- of Evolution Fuels common stock as of the record date of January 8, 2010 shall receive a proportionate share of the total two million shares of EVLN common stock distributed. The current market price of EVLN common stock is $4.00. These dividend shares will be "restricted" as defined in the Securities Act of 1933. Rule 144 allows for the public resale of restricted securities only if certain holding period and other conditions are satisfied. For non-affiliates of the EVLN, the holding period is six months.
Evolution Resources (EVLN) is an advanced biofuels production company focused on combining the latest in cellulosic process technologies with existing biomass assets for the production of cellulosic ethanol. Evolution Fuels will distribute 100% its ownership of Evolution Resources common stock pursuant to the dividend.
The additional dividend of Evolution Fuels common stock will be performed on a simple 1-1 basis, whereby any shareholders owning at least one share of Evolution Fuels common stock as of the record date of February 23, 2010 shall receive an equivalent number of newly issued shares. These dividend shares will be "restricted" as defined in the Securities Act of 1933. Rule 144 allows for the public resale of restricted securities only if certain holding period and other conditions are satisfied. For non-affiliates of the Company, the holding period is six months.
"Our goal of listing on a premiere tier of the U.S. over-the-counter market will provide numerous trading benefits, as well as increased exposure to retail and institutional investors," said Dennis McLaughlin, CEO of Evolution Fuels. "However, in order to achieve our goal of listing on the OTCQX, we are undergoing a series of proactive strategic initiatives to raise our price per share, while at the same time, rewarding our existing shareholders."
The higher price per share needed to achieve Evolution Resources' goal of obtaining a listing on the OTCQX marketplace will also benefit many shareholders and potential shareholders who have experienced limitations on the ability to purchase stocks that trade under one penny.
Mr. McLaughlin continued, "As CEO of both companies, I am pleased to offer our loyal Evolution Fuels shareholders with the two million shares of Evolution Resources common stock. We will be making a separate announcement of a joint conference call to provide background on both companies, discuss our strategic initiatives and relay our corporate growth plans for 2009 and beyond."
