AMMO, Inc. Completes the $27 Million Acquisition of Jagemann Stamping Company’s Brass Casing Division
SCOTTSDALE, AZ, November 6, 2020 – AMMO, Inc. (OTCQB: POWW) (“AMMO” or the “Company”), a premier American ammunition and munition components manufacturer and technology leader, today announced it delivered the final payment concluding its 2019 $27 million acquisition of the Jagemann Stamping Company’s (JSC) brass casing division by paying in full the Seller’s $5.8 million Note.
Jagemann Stamping Company’s brass division was regarded as one of the best-in-class brass suppliers to the ammunition and munition components industry for decades. This completed acquisition further solidifies AMMO’s position in the ammunition industry as a leading manufacturer of innovative and high-quality products. Although the balance was due in 2021, the Company decided to satisfy the Seller’s Note in full (approximately nine (9) months early) in support of its efforts to execute on the Company’s business plans.
“We targeted JSC’s well-established brass casing division in 2018 and closed the transaction in early 2019, rebranding the operations as Jagemann Munition Components (JMC), because of the industry leading position they had established based upon their cutting-edge equipment and world class team. We have seamlessly integrated that team and operation into the AMMO operations since closing in 2019 and are excited to have concluded the transaction with the early payoff of the Seller Note”, said Fred Wagenhals, AMMO’s CEO. “We continue to enhance our JMC brass casing and loaded ammunition operations by adding more cutting edge equipment to support exponential increases in manufacturing output while bringing on additional team members with an impressive depth of industry and manufacturing knowledge in support of our efforts to continue to meet the growing demand for our products.”
