Dan Martin, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman said, “We are incredibly proud of our tremendous progress in 2019 resulting from acquisitions coupled with strong organic growth particularly in our building materials and energy divisions. Over the last two quarters we have had positive cash flows with no long-term debt which is a testament to our team’s efforts around execution and strategy.”
Martin continued, “Every member of the Innovest Global family has contributed to our success and growth thus far. In particular, the dedication and focus of our President, Damon Mintz and our team of global leaders, Tony Crookston, Tom Eichele, Sally Emch, Dennis Giancola, Mark Kelly, Shawn Nadolski, Bill Oler, and John Yenges have created great value and a strong foundation on which incremental shareholder value can be obtained.”
The Company has also recently announced plans to spin-off its biotechnology holdings to focus on industrial revenue opportunities. In the planned spin-off, Innovest Global Inc. will hold stock in the Biotech spin-out company with dividends paid to IVST shareholders quarterly. In addition to achieving value from the stock of its Biotech effort, this action is expected to provide a focused and dedicated environment for Innovest to take advantage of rapidly growing traditional industrial and commercial sales. This action is expected to be completed no later than the end of the year.
