Investment summary

During Q118, MagneGas announced the acquisition of three distributors of metal cutting gases: Trico in Northern California; Complete Welding in Southern California; and Green Arc in Texas and Louisiana, bringing total annualised revenues to $14m. These acquisitions complement its existing direct sales network in Florida, giving access to the two states with the highest consumption of metal cutting gases in the US. Management intends to double annualised revenues over the next three to five years by strengthening the existing sales team and making further small acquisitions in California and Texas. Management is also developing a direct route into Europe, which is the second largest market for industrial gases globally, focusing on supplying super-ports with hundreds of potential customers.
