Investors want the highest returns. But it has been obvious, from the earliest times, that the projects with the highest returns, like sea voyages too far off lands, are also the most likely to fail, and so project risk must be taken into account. One way to ensure that sunken ships did not sink your business entirely was to bet on several captains, and not put all your eggs in one basket. This sensible approach was given mathematical underpinning when, in 1952, a young University of Chicago economist named Harry Markowitz published a paper titled “Portfolio Selection” His exposition also showed, counter intuitively, that overall portfolio risk could actually be reduced by adding risky assets, provided they had little or no correlation to existing assets. Since then many companies have turned themselves into conglomerates and diversified entities to capitalize on these insights. The best known of these is, perhaps, Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway. Now startup RJD Green Inc. (OTC: RJDG) is employing that time-tested approach. The company is a holding company with a focus on acquiring and managing assets and companies in three areas. At present, its three divisions are RJD Green Healthcare Services, Earthlinc Environmental Services and Silex Holdings.
RJD Green’s diversification approach makes sense for a company with the present management team. Its CEO and COO is Ron Brewer, who has developed extensive experience and contacts in a broad range of businesses, including manufacturing and distribution, health services, energy, environmental, technology driven products, real estate and marketing. He has served as Managing Director of Southbridge Advisory Group, a boutique management firm with a primary focus on management services and mergers & acquisitions, since 1990.
On the finance side, John Rabbit, CFO, who brings an extensive and diverse background in business with stints at CPA firm Ernst and Ernst and Fortune 500 firms including The Pillsbury Company and PepsiCo, supports him.
RJD Green’s Technology Director is Richard Billings, who has more than 30 years’ experience in industrial research. Mr. Billings has formulated over 150 industrial products for companies including Southwest Sales Co, Diamond Chemical Company, Broco International, Industrial Lubricants, Nu-Look Chemical Co., Green Country Laboratories, Executive Laboratories and Environmental Solutions International, Inc., many of which have found markets in Australia, Canada, China, Germany, Saudi Arabia and the USA. The team also includes Rex Washburn, who offers 23 years of senior management experience, with 17 of those years as Chief Executive Officer of both publicly held and private companies and Jerry Niblett, who comes with over 25 years of management success in oil & gas operations for both corporate and small-cap enterprise.
The RJD Green Healthcare Division leverages the healthcare industry experience and extensive industry relationships of RJDG’S management team. The division is focused on the acquisition of companies in the healthcare industry that provide services to reduce cost and or enhance management capability through support services. Additional opportunities arise from the relationships with hospital personnel. The division may be able to create significant revenues by sourcing additional value-added products and services for distribution to hospital groups.
The healthcare division has kicked off its operations with the acquisition of IoSoft Inc., a company that provides payment technologies, services and software that can be integrated into targeted offerings for healthcare provider networks, hospitals, healthcare payers, and individual providers. IoSoft was formed in 1998 to provide proprietary software for medical billing, healthcare claims adjudication, automotive warranty payments, and electronic payments. Its healthcare payment systems provide unique payment technologies and services or software that can be integrated with the existing systems of healthcare payers, such as Blue Cross, Aetna, CIGNA and others. IoSoft provides targeted product offerings for healthcare providers, provider networks, physicians, hospitals, and clearinghouse companies like Relay Health, a McKesson division, and SSI – ClaimsNet. The IoSoft team has years of experience and relationships within the more than one million providers in the healthcare market.
RJD Green’s two other divisions are Earthlinc Environmental Services and Silex Holdings. Earthlinc is focused on environmental services. The division’s first acquisition, Animal Waste Management, is launching operations of a patented, fully developed technology for processing waste produced on commercial poultry and hog farms. Meanwhile Silex Holdings operates in the industrial and construction specialty services sectors. Its first acquisition, Silex Interiors, a manufacturer, distributor and installer of counter tops, cabinets and related kitchen and bath products, gives the division a toehold in national markets. The division is planning to operate four locations nationwide and franchise 12-18 others.
