This will have the ability to streamline and create an efficient arm to effectively provide the strength needed to evolve and expand our products throughout North America.”

Under the term sheet, ECOX will pay Boetzkes one million shares of the company’s restricted common stock for substantially all Spruce Construction assets, with an intended closing date of Aug. 15.
