Terra Tech Corp.: Issues Corporate Update On GroRite And NB Plants Merger And Recent Financing

Terra Tech Corp. (OTCBB: TRTC), a leader in sustainable agricultural products, releases merger update with both GroRite Garden Centers and NB Plants/ Edible Garden and discusses their recent $825,000 financing.

Terra Tech recently announced signing LOI’s to acquire two companies, GroRite Garden Center and NB Plants/ Edible Garden brand. Upon a successful merger these two acquisitions will push annual revenue for Terra Tech to over $10 million. Both companies are cash flow and net income positive. Currently the Edible Garden brand can be found at Shoprite, Food Emporium in over 280 retailers throughout New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. GroRite is a gardening superstore with retail shopping situated on over 8 acres in Lincoln Park, NJ.

As we have previously stated the company is currently working towards definitive documents to close the transaction and determined it was important to make investors aware of the progress and details. To date Terra Tech has finished negotiating terms with both entities and are finalizing the documents and the structure of the transaction. Both NB Plants and GroRite have working capital lines of credit amounting to $1.8 million in place. The lines had certain covenants that wouldn’t transfer over to the new merged entity. Presently Terra Tech and the VandeVrede’s are refinancing these instruments, which has caused a delay for closing the merger. Both parties are confident the new lines will be set up within a few weeks.

“As you navigate through the process of closing a deal of this magnitude you uncover additional variables that need to be addressed, it is important for us to close this within the second quarter as this is a significant fiscal period for us,” said Ken VandeVrede COO of Terra Tech and President of GroRite. “Closing this merger is the priority for Terra Tech as well as my family. We have aggressive growth plans for the next 24 months that include expansion into additional markets.”
