VICTORIA, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 19, 2018 / FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS INTERNATIONAL, INC. (NYSE American: FSI; FRANKFURT: FXT), is the developer and manufacturer of biodegradable polymers for oil extraction, detergent ingredients and water treatment as well as crop nutrient availability chemistry. Flexible Solutions also manufactures biodegradable and environmentally safe water and energy conservation technologies. Today the Company announces the acquisition of 65% of ENP Investments LLC, a manufacturing and distribution company active in the areas of golf, turf and ornamental agriculture products.
This acquisition will expand FSI's exposure to the important golf, turf and ornamental marketplace, increase revenue and cash flow as well as providing opportunities for product improvement by both FSI and ENP.
This control position in the acquisition will be held by the NanoChem division of FSI because both production facilities are situated within 20 miles of each other in Illinois and because the agricultural operations of NanoChem are synergistic with ENP at all levels.
The purchase price is US$5.11 million in the form of $4.11 million in cash and a $1 million convertible note carrying an interest rate of 5% per year. The cash was provided by a loan from BMO Harris Bank. The financials of ENP will be consolidated into those of FSI beginning with Q4 2018. We expect the acquisition to add $1.3 MM to revenue in Q4 and $7.5 MM or greater for full year 2019.
