Greenwave Gearing Up for Significant Expansion
The installation of the Company’s second automotive shredder and downstream system is on track to be completed in Q3 2022, which is expected to double Greenwave's processing capacity and expand its profit margins
June 21, 2022
Greenwave Technology Solutions, Inc. ("Greenwave" or the "Company") (OTCPink:GWAV) is pleased to report that its second automotive shredder and downstream system are scheduled to become operational during the third quarter of 2022. Greenwave, through its subsidiary Empire Services, Inc. ("Empire"), operates 11 metal recycling facilities in Virginia and North Carolina.
The Company’s second shredder will process cars, household appliances, and industrial products, while the downstream system will increase recovery yields of copper, aluminum, brass, steel, and other metals. The shredder and downstream system are scheduled to come online in the summer and fall of 2022, respectively, and are expected to double the Company’s processing capacity while increasing its profit margins.
Greenwave generated revenues of $9.92 million during the first quarter of 2022, an increase of 66.91% from the $5.94 million in revenue Empire generated in the same period in 2021, while generating positive cashflows from operating activities.
“We have made significant investments in our infrastructure this year to support the planned expansion of the number of scrap metal yards we operate through both organic growth and potentially acquiring independent, profitable facilities,” stated Danny Meeks, Chief Executive Officer of Greenwave. “Since founding Empire in 2004, we have successfully navigated several economic climates and believe Greenwave is positioned to continue generating positive operating cashflows while growing its revenues through a likely recession. We’d like to thank all of Greenwave’s shareholders for their continued trust in our Company and look forward to keeping you updated on our progress.”
On May 4, 2022, Greenwave submitted its application to uplist to NASDAQ and believes it will meet the listing requirements without a further capital raise. The successful listing of Greenwave’s common stock on a national exchange could result in a significant increase in institutional interest and liquidity in the market for the Company’s stock.
