DENVER, Oct. 10, 2012 -- Two Rivers Water Company ("Two Rivers" OTC QB: TURV, http://www.2riverswater.com) announced today it has asked for and received the resignation of Wedbush Securities, Inc. as Two Rivers' exclusive financial advisor.
John R. McKowen, CEO and Founder of Two Rivers stated, "Two Rivers has a dynamic business model that requires capital to fuel our revenue expansion plans in the irrigated farming and water space. It is difficult for traditional investment banking to find 'comparables' for us. We combine high value vegetable row crop production with wholesale water distribution to municipalities. It's a new revenue and profit generating business model, which meets core societal needs that traditional investment banking has not yet become familiar with. It's the model that will satisfy the currently competing demands for agricultural production and municipal use of scarce water resources in the arid West. While Wedbush understood the value proposition of our business, they were unable to organize in a timely manner the right rational capital formation strategy directed at the right investor. The right investor is the 'saving public' who intuitively understands the value of irrigated farmland as a protection against inflation and as an inflation sensitive revenue generator. They intuitively understand what we offer is a good investment as they watch their savings stagnate and prices go up at the grocery store. Two Rivers has the management team, employees and support of dedicated private investors who will sustain the Company while we search for a new capital formation partner who can produce the best valuations for our shareholders, investors and business partners."
