XStream Beverage Group, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: XSBG) today announced it has completed the acquisition of the historic “Squeeze” soda brand. The brand was acquired in an all-stock purchase from Squeeze Beverage, Inc. Specific terms were not disclosed.
At its height, Squeeze, founded in 1920, was a prominent national brand distributed in more than 30 states. Current distribution has been limited to a few markets in the New England area.
“Squeeze is an ideal addition to our growing product line and it is in keeping with our short- and long-term strategy to build brands while establishing our own distribution network,” said Jerry Pearring, CEO, XStream Beverage Group, Inc. “We intend on tweaking the current flavors and updating the packaging prior to expanding the brand. Gourmet sodas, in particular nostalgic, retro brands, are a growing category in the beverage market.”
Less than a year ago, the Company introduced its proprietary energy drink, Yohimbe. Made from the bark of the West African Corynanthe Yohimbe tree, the drink also contains vitamins B-12, B-6 and taurine, which is an essential amino acid. Since its introduction in March 2003, sales of the product have grown consistently, making particular inroads in several of the popular clubs in South Beach and Ft. Lauderdale, as well as various spots in Connecticut.
XStream Beverage Group currently has its own distribution facilities in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. and Bristol, Conn. Plans call for the acquisition of small- to medium-sized distributors in strategic locations around the nation, while concurrently introducing its own proprietary products through those distribution channels.
