Significantly, the Truebeam operation will contribute strong positive cash flow and an estimated C$2.4mln in profitable revenue during the 2018 calendar year, Atlas said.
Truebeam will supply trusses and engineered wood products to residential development projects in Northern Alberta and Northwest British Columbia, including Fort McMurray and Medicine Hat.
"We are taking advantage of an exciting opportunity to expand our footprint in the Alberta marketplace, said Guy Champagne, the president of Atlas.
"Combined with our aggressive acquisition program, strategic expansion opportunities such as these will allow us to economically and rapidly scale our revenue base and geographic reach.”
Only last month (February), the group inked a binding letter of intent to buy Highwood Trusses Ltd, which is located in High River, Alberta and has annual sales of over C$3.5mln, as well as strong profitability, and very capable operational leadership.
Under the deal, the company will acquire all the issued and outstanding shares of Highwood for C$1.25mln in cash and issue 1.5mln in shares on closing.
As additional consideration, Highwood shareholders, on the first and second anniversary of closing, will receive a further C$250,000 and 385,000 share purchase warrants for C$0.65 per share.
That's assuming Highwood achieves underlying earnings (EBITDA) of C$450,000 during the first year, and C$500,000 during the second.
"The acquisition of Highwood is another key step in our acquisition program to significantly broaden our geographic reach," said Champagne.
"We are extremely pleased to be acquiring Highwood as it is highly accretive and provides us with a strategic base from which to expand in Alberta.
