U.S. Steel Turns Down $7.3Bn Offer From Cleveland-Cliffs, Explores Alternatives – Potential Upside For Greenwave Technology Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: GWAV)?

Major developments in the steel industry are reshaping the landscape for key players. U.S. Steel, a significant player in the industry, has recently declined a substantial $7.3Bn acquisition offer from Cleveland-Cliffs and is now contemplating competitive proposals from Esmark Inc.

To add to the intrigue, there are rumors of ArcelorMittal SA considering entering the bid for this major steel manufacturer.

Amid this potential industry consolidation,  GWAV emerges as a proactive contender, gearing up for an aggressive expansion strategy to meet the escalating demands of leading U.S. steel mills.

 GWAV: Paving the Way for Growth in Metal Recycling

GWAV holds a prominent position as an operator of metal recycling facilities across Ohio, Virginia and North Carolina. Their core operations involve the collection, categorization, and processing of raw scrap metal, primarily to supply major steel mills and foundries. What sets Greenwave apart is its relentless pursuit of expansion and infrastructure enhancement, positioning itself as a key player during a potentially transformative phase in the steel industry.

Record-Breaking Growth: Positive Cash Flows and Expansion Plans

The first half of last year saw Greenwave Technology Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: GWAV) achieve remarkable growth, marked by substantial in-vest-ments in infrastructure that have begun yielding impressive results. Notably, the company achieved a significant milestone by generating $1.23Mn in positive cash flows from operations during the six months ending on June 30, 2023—a record achievement for the company.

Investing Heavily in Infrastructure

GWAV’s strategy of heavy infrastructure investment over recent years is now showing substantial promise. A standout example is the installation of a new automotive shredder and downstream processing system at its Kelford, North Carolina facility. This innovative system focuses on recovering millimeter-minus metal pieces from the residue left in the shredder. This previously discarded residue, often referred to as “fluff,” holds substantial value, but effectively extracting it has proven challenging. The downstream processing system is designed to overcome this hurdle.

The downstream system officially commenced operations in July 2023, introducing a fresh revenue stream set to kickstart in Q3 2023. The company forecasts that this system will generate an average daily revenue of $38,000, boasting margins exceeding 80%. Furthermore, it is well on its way to achieving over $1Mn in monthly revenue by the year’s end.

Future Growth Anticipated

GWAV is accelerating its progress toward these goals with the impending launch of a second automotive shredder at its Carrollton facility. This addition will effectively double the metal recycler’s capacity to process ferrous metal. The decision to shred ferrous metal rather than selling it in its unshredded form positions the company to command higher prices, generating an estimated 33% increase in additional revenue compared to unshredded ferrous metal.

In April, GWAV expanded its footprint with the opening of a new facility in Cleveland. Even though it has not yet reached its full volume potential, this location is already generating approximately $100,000 per month in revenue. As operations further ramp up, particularly with the commencement of a shear baler this month, the Cleveland facility is poised to generate $250k or more per month in revenue by next year.

As U.S. Steel explores alternative pathways in a potentially consolidating steel industry,  GWAV stands out as a company actively positioning itself to seize new growth opp’s and strengthen its foothold in the ever-evolving world of metal recycling.

Greenwave Technology Solutions Releases Shareholder Update

Company on track to generate record revenues in FY 2024

Second shredder will be fully operational soon and is expected to double Greenwave’s ferrous metal processing capacity

CHESAPEAKE, Va., Feb. 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Greenwave Technology Solutions, Inc.(“Greenwave” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: GWAV), a leading operator of metal recycling facilities in Virginia, North Carolina, and Ohio, today released the following shareholder update:Greenwave Technology Solutions (PRNewsfoto/Greenwave Technology Solutions)

Dear Greenwave Shareholders,

We are pleased to report that Greenwave is off to strong start in 2024 and is on track to generate record revenues this year. A few recent developments we’d like to highlight:

  • Both our Virginia Beach and Cleveland yards continue to post impressive growth in terms of their revenues, volumes, and profits – we expect they will soon become two of our top performing locations.
  • We recently commenced operations of a metal baler, wire stripper, and three sheers at our non-ferrous processing facility, enabling us to generate more revenues with higher margins on our aluminum and copper products.
  • Greenwave generated more than $200,000 in revenue from cars purchased through our wholly-owned subsidiary, Scrap App, Inc. (“Scrap App”), during the first 130 days since it launched, as it continues to capture market share for end-of-life motor vehicles. Scrap App is currently available in the Hampton Roads and Cleveland markets. We intend to expand Scrap App to other strategic markets in the near future.
  • In the coming days, we expect Virginia Dominion Power will inform of us of the final date on which our second automotive shredder will be connected to the power grid and can commence operations. Our existing automotive shredder is the same make and model – an American Pulverizer 60×85 – providing us expertise in its operation and maintenance. Given this experience, we expect our second shredder will be fully operational shortly after being connected to the power grid and is expected to double Greenwave’s ferrous metal processing capacity. By shredding the steel which we currently sell unshredded, we anticipate that we will be able to generate approximately 30% more revenue with significant margins on that steel volume.

In August 2023, Baltimore Scrap Corp. was acquired for $177 million plus working capital and other adjustments(1). While Baltimore Scrap Corp. is larger than Greenwave – it operates 17 yards, four shredders, and processes 600,000 metric tons of scrap each year – we believe this acquisition supports management’s view that Greenwave’s expansion strategy has the potential to create significant value for its shareholders.

Once our second shredder commences operations, we believe Greenwave will have the requisite infrastructure and cashflows to expand it footprint of metal recycling facilities. As a technology platform, Scrap App has the ability to scale to multiple new markets with minimal capital investment – we do not have to open a new facility, purchase additional equipment, or hire a team of people when we expand to a new market. We believe the expansion of Greenwave’s footprint and Scrap App, along with the second shredder commencing operations, will be the primary growth drivers for our revenues – and, likely, margins – in 2024.

Central to Greenwave’s growth strategy are the principles that a) we do not overpay for acquisitions and b) any deal we pursue must be properly structured to minimize dilution and limit impact to cashflow. Our goal is to utilize seller’s notes as our preferred form of consideration as we expand – we do not expect to win every deal, nor should that be our objective. We intend to spend the time and energy required to ensure the deals we pursue are fairly priced, properly structured, and have the potential to create significant value for our shareholders.

Similar to most industries, there has been a tremendous amount of consolidation in scrap metal companies over the past several years. Greenwave is now one of the largest independent chains of scrap yards remaining in the country, with significant market share in our key markets. Further, we believe there is significant value in our licenses, municipal and corporate contracts garnered over our 20 year operating history, robust infrastructure, and team of seasoned experts.

We believe the next few months will be transformative for Greenwave and look forward to sharing our progress and developments.

We thank all of our shareholders and appreciate your continued support.

To an exciting 2024,

Danny Meeks

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Greenwave Technology Solutions Generates More than $9 Million Revenue in Q4 2023 Company Grows Revenues More than 10% Over Q3 2023

Greenwave Expects to Significantly Grow Revenues in FY 2024

CHESAPEAKE, Va., Jan. 22, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Greenwave Technology Solutions, Inc.(“Greenwave” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: GWAV), a leading operator of metal recycling facilities in Virginia, North Carolina, and Ohio, today announced that it generated more than $9 million in revenue during the fourth quarter of 2023. The news comes on the heels of the Company commencing operations of a metal baler, wire stripper, and three sheers at its non-ferrous processing facility in Portsmouth, VA last week.

Greenwave is poised to accelerate its revenue growth in 2024, aided by the significant capital expenditures the Company has made over the past twenty-four months, some of which include additional processing equipment, a fleet of trucks to more efficiently transport materials for processing and sale, and technologies aimed at growing top line sales as well as creating operating efficiencies to enhance margins.

With more than 20 years of experience in the metal recycling industry, Empire’s leadership has grown the Company through nearly every economic climate and is committed to creating long-term shareholder value.

Greenwave Technology Solutions’ Second Shredder Currently Being Connected to Power Grid by Dominion Energy Ahead of Schedule

The second shredder is expected to boost annual revenues by approximately $4.8 million, with significant increase to gross profit

Second shredder on track to be connected to power grid by March 29, 2024 and commence operations shortly thereafter, doubling Greenwave’s annual shredded ferrous output

Greenwave is now one of the largest independent operators of metal recycling facilities on the East Coast

CHESAPEAKE, Va., March 25, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Greenwave Technology Solutions, Inc.(“Greenwave” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: GWAV), a leading operator of metal recycling facilities in Virginia, North Carolina, and Ohio, today announced that Dominion Energy is currently in the process of connecting its second automotive shredder to the power grid which is expected to be completed by March 29, 2024. The Company’s second automotive shredder is expected to commence operations shortly thereafter and double Greenwave’s annual shredded ferrous output.

Greenwave’s existing automotive shredder – an American Pulverizer 60×85 – is the same make and model as its second one, providing the Company expertise in its operation and maintenance. By shredding the steel Greenwave currently sells unshredded, the Company anticipates that it will be able to generate approximately 25-30% more revenue with significant margins on that steel volume.

In October 2023, Sims Metal Management acquired Baltimore Scrap Corp., which operated 17 metal recycling facilities and four shredders, for consideration of $220 million(1). Similar to most industries, there has been a tremendous amount of consolidation in scrap metal companies during the past several years. Greenwave is now one of the largest independent chains of scrap yards remaining on the East Coast, with significant market share in its key markets. Further, the Company believes there is significant value in its licenses, municipal and corporate contracts garnered over its 20-year operating history, robust infrastructure, and team of seasoned experts.

Greenwave’s second shredder provides the infrastructure for us to expand our footprint of metal recycling facilities up from 13 currently – significantly growing Greenwave’s revenues, margins, and free cashflow,” stated Greenwave CEO Danny Meeks. “We believe the market is significantly undervaluing Greenwave and firmly believe that by continuing our hub-and-spoke strategy of shredder hubs with feeder yards, we will become an increasingly attractive acquisition target of the major scrap metal conglomerates.”

Greenwave is on track to grow it revenues and volume of steel processed from 2023 levels in 2024.

Greenwave Technology Solutions Commences Operation of Metal Baler, Wire Stripper, and Sheers at Non-Ferrous Processing Facility

Equipment Expected to Grow Revenues by Tens of Thousands of Dollars per Month with Significant Margins

Automates Certain Manual Processes Required to Process, Transport, and Sell Aluminum and Copper Products

CHESAPEAKE, Va., Jan. 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Greenwave Technology Solutions, Inc.(“Greenwave” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: GWAV), a leading operator of metal recycling facilities in Virginia, North Carolina, and Ohio, today announced that it has commenced operation of a metal baler, wire stripper, and three sheers at its non-ferrous processing facility in Portsmouth, VA.

The high capacity metal baler is capable of compacting large amounts of metal into dense bales – significantly reducing the amount of labor and cost required to process, transport, and sell copper and aluminum products. By condensing more material into each load of metal it sells, the Company will be able to reduce transportation costs and realize a greater profit margin. Further, the Company will be able to more easily export its products to domestic and international clients, potentially increasing the revenues generated by its products.

Greenwave recently completed its multi-year capex cycle, under which the Company has invested more than $15 million in its infrastructure and equipment over the past 24 months. This capex cycle is expected to double its ferrous metal processing capacity from fiscal 2022 levels and result in the Company having the infrastructure to accretively scale to over 20 metal recycling facilities.
