The Company expects the audit process to be finalized in 30 to 45 days with a revised transaction close expected on or before August 29th, 2014.
The executive management teams of VeroLube and Thermo Fluids are working collaboratively to effectuate a smooth transition for employees and customers at closing. This pre-closing transition planning is designed to help ensure an expedited and seamless integration of Thermo Fluids into VeroLube. Additionally, this will allow VeroLube to lay the foundation ahead of the closing for executing its business plan that includes additional collection acquisitions, organic growth and optimization of the Thermo Fluids’ operations. The Company intends to expand its collection footprint allowing for select target marketing of select regional and national accounts.
