Splash Beverage Group (NYSE American: SBEV), a portfolio company of leading beverage brands, today announced that it has executed a letter of intent (“LOI”) to acquire JEM Beverage Management Company LLC, owners of the brand Western Son Vodka. The terms of the transaction have not been disclosed and are subject to reaching a definitive agreement. “This acquisition is a significant step forward in our growth strategy,” said Splash Beverage Group’s CEO Robert Nistico. “Led by our president and CMO Bill Meissner, we began speaking with Western Son in 2022, familiarizing ourselves with the organization to best strategize the integration with Splash. When the transaction is complete, this will be our largest acquisition to date, and it falls withing the range of acquisition targets we outlined in our recent acquisition credit facility announcement as we move down the acquisition path. Splash Beverage will bring sales and marketing support to Western Son and Western’s distillery and the shipping campus will establish a centralized production and distribution hub for Splash’s existing brands, Pulpoloco and SALT Tequila in addition to any future acquisitions, creating logistics cost savings in favorable shipping lanes, reducing freight out expense and ultimately increasing margins. We believe this acquisition will help accelerate both the depth and breadth of distribution for all the brands involved.”
