Camber Energy Sub Lineal Industries Regains Major Legacy Customer Lost by Prior Owner
HOUSTON, TX / October 2, 2019 / Camber Energy, Inc. (NYSE American: CEI) (“Camber” or the “Company”) based in Houston, Texas, announced today its recently acquired subsidiary Lineal Industries, Inc. (“Lineal”) www.LinealStar.com, has regained a major legacy customer lost by its prior owners before the purchase of the company by Lineal Star Holdings, LLC (“Lineal Star”) in 2018. The customer is one of the largest wholesale distributors of refined petroleum products in the USA, with strategically located terminals in the Northeast, MidAtlantic and Southeast markets. Previously one of Lineal’s most important clients, the prior Lineal owners pursued larger, more complex pipeline projects in lieu of the customary long-term maintenance projects Lineal Industries built its reputation on. Lineal Industries has now been awarded a number of pipeline integrity projects by the re-acquired customer, which reopens the company’s opportunity to provide long-term maintenance and capital project services.
Tim Connolly, CEO of Lineal Star (the parent of Lineal) commented, “When we purchased Lineal Industries in 2018, we wanted to rebuild its 64-year-old business of integrity and pipeline services, rather than largely relying on large non repetitive capital projects. This new client work is a significant step in the right direction of executing our strategy of re-building Lineal Industries’ previous long-term business strategy. We believe that a business built on many singles and doubles will eventually bring in home runs, and our Lineal Industries team should be proud of winning back this well-known legacy customer.”
On another note, Mr. Connolly added, “We would also like to reassure our Camber shareholders that the pending audit and Form 8-K/A report concerning the Camber acquisition of Lineal Star and its subsidiaries is being pursued with all available resources and even with significant flooding in Houston last week, and additional unexpected documentation requirements from our auditors needed to complete the report, we are doing everything necessary to get this work completed as soon as possible.”
