USA Superior to Join with Hunt in Reverse Merger
USA Superior Energy Holdings, Inc. has executed a letter of intent to merge with Hunt Global Resources Inc. of Montgomery, Texas.
The transaction will be in the form of a "reverse merger." Under terms of the agreement, Hunt will assume a majority stock position and appoint a new board of directors. Full details of the transaction will be released upon the execution of a definitive agreement between the parties.
Closing is based on the completion of required audits, satisfactory due-diligence, a fairness-opinion and shareholders' approval of the transaction.
Hunt is a natural resource company that plans to begin mining operations in the fourth quarter of this year on 350 acres of land containing proven sand and gravel reserves valued at an estimated $1.2 billion dollars.
We believe this transaction will provide value to our shareholders said G. Rowland Carrey, CEO of USA Superior Energy. Hunt has a solid business plan and proven resources in a geographic area where demand for construction grade sand and fine sands used for glass manufacturing continually outpaces the available supply.
"We're very excited about this transaction," said Jewel S. Hunt V, Founder and Chairman of Hunt Global Resources.
"We believe that entering the public market will allow us to take advantage of the many opportunities available in the natural resource business. Unlike the oil business, the business of mining sand and gravel is relatively simple. There are no dry or unproductive wells and the equipment required is relatively inexpensive. Sand and gravel is mainly surface mining. All of the material is located within fifty feet of the surface and visible to the naked eye. We excavate the materials, process it and load it on a waiting truck. The only complexity to the business is the proprietary software technology we have designed that allows us to process a variety of sand products at higher profit margins than traditional sand and gravel operations," Mr. Hunt added.
