Shares of Blue Earth Resources are surging after the company announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire 100% ownership in Fuel Trader Supply (FTS) and Fuel Trader Resource Management (FTRM). Although an exact value has not been disclosed, management says it will use cash and BERI common shares to finance the acquisition. William Eaton, the owner of FTS and FTRM, will become the Chief Operating Officer of the newly combined company and will serve on the board of directors.
FTS is a bulk gas and diesel product supplier that operates within the Colonial and Plantation pipeline systems. FTS’s existing supply relationships will help Blue Earth Resources with obtaining better pricing and energy product sourcing. During 2021, FTS reported total operating revenue of $142.04 million, as of December 31, 2021.
FTRM is a provider of full-service bulk fuel inventory management solutions, including consulting, sourcing, logistics, and risk management for its energy clients.

FTRM is a member of the National Futures Association (NFA) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).

For the full-year 2021, FTRM reported total operating revenues of $1.02 million, as of December 31, 2021.
Will Eaton stated: “The acquisition is very friendly and is more like a merger, allowing us to combine resources across multiple entities, while also keeping the established Fuel Trader and Blue Earth brands. We will be able to substantially increase our consolidated revenues while simultaneously reducing our outflows. Integrating the companies will allow us to take advantage of the inefficiencies in the supply eco system and capture additional margin from end to end. I am excited to work more intimately with the team at BERI as we have long standing relationships that span back over decades.”
