The Staffing Group to Acquire North Dakota Industrial Staffing Firm
Company Plans Industry Roll-up
The Staffing Group, Ltd. (OTC PINK: TSGL) (the "Company"), today announced it plans to acquire a North Dakota industrial staffing firm.
With three locations operating in North Dakota, the acquisition target provides skilled personnel to various industries including trucking, manufacturing, construction, and the oil and gas industry in the Bakken Shale Region.
The proposed transaction is expected to add as much as $6 million in revenue to the Company in 2016 and in excess of $8.5 million in 2017. Definitive terms are being finalized and the Company expects to close on the acquisition upon a successful completion of its equity raise. On February 4, 2016, the Company filed a Form D with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, stating its intention to raise $5 million in a non-brokered private placement.
After divesting underperforming assets and a swift clean-up of its balance sheet at the end of 2015, the Company is now focused on executing an aggressive buy-and-build strategy through the acquisition and integration of small to medium sized staffing businesses with focus on the light industrial, engineering, manufacturing and construction staffing space. The Company believes the light industrial staffing segment is ripe for consolidation and will seek accretive acquisitions that will drive annual revenues to $75 million within the next 36 months.
