FISHERS, IN / ACCESSWIRE / August 26, 2022 / American Acquisition Opportunity Inc.'s (NASDAQ:AMAO) merger target company, Royalty Management Corporation ("RMC" or the "Company"), a sustainably driven, cash flow-oriented, royalty investment and development company, announced that it has acquired the initial 50 beehives for its apiary (bee keeping) partnership with Land Betterment Corporation's ("Land Betterment") Pollinate division. RMC has provided the capital required to acquire and place these beehives, in exchange for a royalty on the honey produced and sold, with an initial offtake agreement with Land Betterment's Restored Spirits divisions for the first honey produced from RMC's investment. Land Betterment uses the bees to help facilitate natural land rehabilitation, and the honey produced will be used in its distilling process to produce spirits at its upcoming planned distillery in central Indiana.
Of the initial 50 beehives, 12 are currently deployed at this central Indiana apiary location, with the balance anticipated to be ready for deployment at the same location by the start of the spring 2023 beekeeping season. During the winter, RMC has planned to acquire an additional 150 beehives to prepare for the upcoming 2023 season, bringing a total of 200 beehives under RMC's royalty agreement by spring. Thereafter, RMC anticipates increasing beehive acquisitions and deployments by targeting the acquisition of approximately 1,000 beehives in total for this location and has identified over a dozen additional apiary sites with the goal of expanding to over 10,000 hives in total in five years. The Company expects this would represent approximately $3.0 to $5 million in sustainable annual revenues to RMC.
Tom Sauve, Chief Executive Officer of Royalty Management Corporation, commented, "RMC is always looking for innovative and new areas within the market that it can generate sustainable revenues and returns for our investors, while also being a good steward of the environment and the community. The value that bees provide to local agriculture and land remediation is immense, while also providing a valuable feedstock for this new-age spirits division of Land Betterment that will also go to create a significant number of new jobs in this area. We look forward to opportunistically expanding our footprint in this new sector of RMC, while maximize our return on capital for our investors."
RMC is committed to provide capital for the development, sponsored research and initial commercialization of intellectual property and technology for both the domestic and international market. The priorities for the technology is to develop applications that provide sustainable raw materials for energy storage, water filtration, and infrastructure purposes.
