Service Team Inc (OTCMKTS:SVTE) acquired Trade Leasing, Inc. in 2013 for shares of its common stock (Now known as Delta Stag).

In May, the company president was changed. Mack Clark decided to continue the work of Brian B. Clark, the previous president, who resigned on April 1, 2017. Mr. Clark brings 27 years of service with Service Team of Professionals, a company providing water damage and restoration franchise that he founded. Additionally, the company filed the following announcements to the SEC website. On June 8, 2017, it was noted that the issuer of some of the convertible notes that the company holds is Tangiers Investment Group, LLC, but not Tangiers Capital Group. We believe that the fact may have some implications on the share price. Thus, we noted it here.
In recent news, SVTE released Q1 earnings. SVTE recorded $897,084 in sales and had a gross margin of $156,261. However, the net income applicable to the common shares was negative. The most important expenses were the cost of sales, and the General & Administrative Expenses. Additionally, it was noted that the company had 168,671,089 shares issued and outstanding as of February 28, 2017, as well as 100,000 preferred stock issued and outstanding as of February 28, 2017.

Service Team Inc (OTCMKTS:SVTE) is a hard company to get a bead on. There is a strong possibility a buyout could be afoot or another acquisition. These shares are volatile for unknown reasons and I would caution investors to watch out because there is a foggy air surrounding the company. We hope the next few weeks will clear this up and we will be able to see more reasons for the increase in trading.
