Greenwave Technology Solutions, Inc. ("Greenwave" or the "Company") (OTCPink:MSRT) is pleased to report that it’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Empire Services, Inc., generated revenue of $19.6 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2021. Empire has more than doubled its 2020 revenues thus far in 2021 and recently opened its 11th metal recycling facility in Virginia Beach in October 2021. Greenwave’s acquisition of Empire became effective on October 1, 2021.

 

Greenwave plans to aggressively expand its footprint in 2022 through the roll-up of independent, profitable metal recycling facilities. The Company expects to open its 12th location in Fairmont, NC on or about January 12, 2022. Greenwave expects its strategy will result in revenue growth and the creation of significant shareholder value.

 

The Company has also launched a new corporate website, accessible at GreenwaveTechnologySolutions.com, to better communicate with its shareholders and market participants. Greenwave shareholders are encouraged to subscribe to the Company’s email updates using the link on the website.

 

“Greenwave has four goals for the first half of 2022: uplist to a national exchange, aggressively grow our revenues through expansion, increase our profitability through opening or acquiring a facility with port or rail access, and recruiting a seasoned Chief Financial Officer,” stated Danny Meeks, Chief Executive Officer of Greenwave. “Each of these goals has the potential to create significant shareholder value. We also believe consistent, honest communication with our shareholders is critical to our success and I look forward to keeping you posted on our progress.”

 

Greenwave closed a $37.7 million private placement in November 2021 and believes it can meet the shareholder equity requirements of a national exchange without any further capital raises. Greenwave is in the final stages of preparing its formal application to uplist to the NASDAQ or NYSE, as the Company believes a listing on a national exchange would result in a significant increase in visibility, liquidity, and institutional interest for its stock.
