TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via OTC PR WIRE–Umbra Applied Technologies Group (UATG:PK) announces today that it has relocated its corporate domicile from Delaware to Florida in support of its import/export execution strategy.
The relocation of Umbra Applied Technologies to Florida comes on the heels of a recent change to the corporate structure of the parent company, indicating that the company intends to deliver on its stated intention to up-list to a premium market. When speaking with Chief Financial Officer Thomas Crom he emphasized, “Operating in an increasingly integrated world economy, UAT is positioning itself to better respond to both risk and opportunity while expanding on infrastructure that supports product delivery to the consumer”.
The company continues to expand its retail footprint with the recent addition of Amazon as a retail platform. In a recent interview Mr. Umbra stated,” In a volatile macroeconomic environment its important to remain disciplined so as to balance corporate expansion with top line growth. For example, in an M&A strategy, the returns on a spreadsheet may appear appealing but the allure of immediate capital must be tempered with an executable strategy that delivers both revenue and sustainable growth. Being mindful of a structure that focuses on delivering retained earnings rather than focusing on building an impressive operating income helps to create realized growth opportunities. Corporate governance that structures shareholder value into every decision is critical when strategically repositioning any company especially one that has had to overcome significant obstacles. The last thing you want to have happen is a critical mistake being made, that compromises investor confidence, moments before you pass the finish line. Patience is key”.
The company further indicated that it is currently reviewing multiple acquisition opportunities in furtherance of its previously stated corporate objectives to build on existing technologies and expand its stable of advanced technologies. Additionally, the company is screening multiple candidates to add to its team of highly trained professionals. The company continues to expand its sales and distribution channels and intends to hire an additional 15 employees by the end of the year.
