Milestone Event Follows Announcement Last Week Retaining Maxim Group LLC
TUSTIN, CA / ACCESSWIRE / Oct 27, 2014 / Premier Holding Corporation (PRHL), an energy seller and reseller in deregulated markets, announces that it has closed the acquisition of 85% of Lexington Power and Light, LLC (LP&L) and will now operate as a supplier of energy (electricity and natural gas) in deregulated markets. Last week, PRHL retained Maxim Group LLC to provide strategic corporate finance services, investment banking services, and assist in strategies for maximizing shareholder value.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has already authorized the transaction which cleared the way for completion of the acquisition. The purchase of Lexington Power and Light is a major part of Premier’s larger plan to provide "everything energy" to its thousands of clients and the massive potential energy market. The new subsidiary will also allow Premier to leverage the marketing success of energy brokers such as its current subsidiary, The Power Company (TPC), and create new energy efficiency prospects for E3, allowing Premier to further its plan of integration in this sector. With the acquisition, PRHL's subsidiary E3 can now market energy efficiency products and services to approximately 2,000 commercial accounts already buying power from Lexington and/or the Power Company.
As a supplier, Premier will book their energy customer’s entire energy supply bill as revenue (estimated to be 10 to 12+ times higher than the commission). For example, in addition to the current revenue to a reseller like TPC, as the supplier Premier would also gain the difference between the wholesale and retail cost of energy thereby net income would be expected to grow 2 to 3 times what is currently earned.
PRHL’s President and CEO Randall Letcavage stated, “This is clearly the biggest milestone event in the Company’s history. We are confident Premier is positioned to become one of the fasting growing businesses in the United States.” Mr. Letcavage continued, “We have continued to drive the company forward and are excited to begin the integration of our newest subsidiary.”
