“We are very excited to announce our pending partnership with Water Pilot,” commented Scott Mahoney, Chief Executive Officer of Taronis. “We see tremendous synergies between our two leadership teams. The cross sales potential for our combined company is very promising, and has the potential to drive revenue growth for years to come.”
Mr. Mahoney continued, “Water Pilot has been very successful in penetrating some of the largest national retailers, restaurant operations, and hospitality companies in the US today. We believe they are on the verge of converting a number of these initial pilot programs into highly scalable national and international client relationships. As we are able to more fully disclose many of these prospective clients, we believe that we will be able to accelerate the adoption of Water Pilot technology with other leading companies in these business sectors.”

We also have identified several of Water Pilot’s prospective relationships whom we believe would be receptive to using our MagneGas product for their key industrial clients. Lastly, we have already identified several promising leads for potential clients we can bring to the table in Europe and the Middle East, allowing us to build on existing relationships. We are highly confident that this transaction has the potential to unlock value across the entire combined organization.”
