Keith Driver, EarthRenew’s President and CEO, commented,

“I am extremely pleased to announce the signing of the definitive agreement in connection with our much-anticipated acquisition of Replenish, and we are looking forward to completing the remaining legal formalities to close the transaction. Once the acquisition has completed, we intend to leverage the inherent strengths of the two teams and to build on the success each of our companies has experienced. We are confident that, upon completion, our new, combined entity will not only drive shareholder value, but also position us at the important intersection of upcycling nutrient waste streams and providing regenerative crop inputs.”

Driver continued,

“The appetite for Replenish’s soil health solutions has been remarkable as evidenced by the success of their formulation and sales efforts. We are excited to begin applying our financial horsepower to this model to help extend Replenish’s market reach and broaden our joint product offerings by incorporating alternative nutrient waste streams into new crop input products.”
