Augrid Global Holdings Acquires Carbon Composite Technologies

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Jun 27, 2011) - Augrid (PINKSHEETS: AGHD) announces it signed a Binding Letter of Intent to purchase controlling interest of Carbon Composite Technologies (CCT). Richard Blackmore, CCT President and Founder, sees the acquisition by Augrid as being consistent with his own strategy to grow through acquisition and licensing. Augrid, as the public vehicle, provides the funding mechanisms necessary to accomplish this strategy.

Ninety days post acquisition, CCT estimates $500,000.00 in revenue with a cost of goods sold of $175,000 and EBITDA of $250,000. CCT anticipates sales of $20,000,000 during a twenty-four month operational period with revenue from licensing, material and equipment supply agreements. Augrid's plan is, acquire companies in FRP and Concrete industry and issue key licenses in the near future through CCT. Augrid anticipates conclusion of the acquisition by Friday, July 8, 2011.

CCT produced prototypes for the cement truck industry and has been approved to manufacture parts for a leading cement truck manufacturer. The market potential is based on 10,000 trucks yearly and CCT's customer estimates market share of 15-20 % within two years. The composite parts cause weight reduction which allows for 25% increase in load capacity in new or retrofitted composite trucks. Their 340,000 older trucks operating with an annual 10% market capture represent a large "aftermarket" potential. Replacement composite drums sell for $15,000-$18,000.
