HOUSTON, April 22, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Minerco Resources, Inc. (OTC:MINE), parent company of Level 5 Beverage Company, Inc., the makers of VitaminFIZZ®, announced that Level 5 has purchased a 10% equity position in the VitaminFIZZ Brand. Level 5 holds the rights to purchase up to 56% interest in the brand, over the next five years. This acquisition is in addition to the existing licensing agreement that currently entitles Level 5 to 51% of the net revenues and operational control of the brand.
"This procurement has come at a very opportune time for Level 5 as our company and flagship product are beginning to reach a critical mass in initial key markets. This is another step in our strategy to increase shareholder value by continuing to acquire cash flowing assets," said V. Scott Vanis, Minerco's Chairman and CEO. "This new equity position in VitaminFIZZ offers us many advantages including easier access to traditional financing, indefinite guaranteed ownership of the brand and increased equity for our shareholders. Additionally, the acquisition will set a benchmark of verified current valuation of VitaminFIZZ. We have experienced impressive growth in just seven short months; however, that growth, we believe, will potentially pale in comparison to what we have planned for the next five months going forward."
VitaminFIZZ is a lightly sparkling, flavor-filled, refreshing beverage with an awesome boost of essential vitamins developed to quench your thirst, naturally. VitaminFIZZ is caffeine free, is Non GMO, has zero calories and contains 100% of recommended daily Vitamin B3, B5, B6, B12 and Vitamin C. VitaminFIZZ comes in six flavors: Mango Orange, Strawberry Watermelon, Lemon Lime, Black Raspberry, Strawberry Lemonade and Coconut Pineapple. Currently, VitaminFIZZ can be found in over 1,400 locations within the Southern California, NYC metro and Las Vegas markets as well as online at Amazon.com.
