Galenfeha to Acquire Additive Manufacturing, Appoints CTO

FORT WORTH, TX, Jan 24, 2017 – Galenfeha, Inc. announced the following developments: the company added Mr. Ron Barranco as chief technology officer; signed a letter of intent to acquire Additive Manufacturing, LLC for $14,000,000 in cash; retired and cancelled additional shares from the common share structure; and signed a purchase agreement to sell the Daylight Pump division inventory to pay off the company’s outstanding debt.

In a press release dated November 7, 2016, Galenfeha president and CEO, James Ketner paraphrased Allen Greenspan, warning not to be “consumed by irrational exuberance” by the progress the company has made since his recent return, and wants to re-emphasize that again here.

Mr. Ketner stated: “Do not get consumed by irrational exuberance regarding the Letter of Intent disclosure we filed with the commission today. The acquisition has not been finalized; there are countless things that can go wrong on a deal like this; and we expect to have to face them all. I would also like to again point out a cautionary statement I put on the investor page of our website:”

Mr. Ketner continued, “Although we have made strong progress to heading the company in a profitable direction, I want to be very clear, and on the record informing the public of the risk involved investing in our company.”

Mr. Ketner continued: “Now let’s talk about things we have actually accomplished in the last 30 days. First, it gives me great pleasure to announce that Mr. Ron Barranco has joined Galenfeha’s executive management team as chief technology officer. He is an industry leader in his field, we have similar backgrounds, and he will be instrumental to our company moving forward. Mr. Barranco has owned and operated machine shops, designed Print3D, created, and has solid historic relationships throughout the industry.”

Mr. Barranco commented: “I’m more than excited about joining the Galenfeha team. The mission statement of the company is exactly what I was looking for in order to bring recently developed technology into the market place of additive manufacturing and 3D printing. With President Trump’s commitment of bringing manufacturing back to the US, I believe the acquisition of Additive Manufacturing, LLC, combined with new technology I bring to Galenfeha, will position us for significant growth in the near future.”

Mr. Ketner concluded with: “Also in the last 30 days, we extinguished the last agreement we had that issued common stock; we had 500,000 shares of common stock returned to the company and cancelled; and we finalized a purchase agreement to sell our entire Daylight Pump inventory to a Houston, Texas firm.”

Details of the above information can be found on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission this morning.
