808 Renewable Energy Corporation Completes Merger with Cool Events, LLC and Provides Shareholder Update
LAS VEGAS, Dec. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NetworkWire – 808 Renewable Energy Corporation (OTC: RNWR) (“the Company”) is pleased to announce the completion of its merger with Cool Events, LLC.
The merger between 808 Renewable Energy and Cool Events redirects the Company’s business model to focus on the rapidly growing events industry. William Spata assumes the position of CEO and director; Brogg Sterrett is COO and director; and Valerie Spata is human resources manager.
Cool Events brings a seasoned management team with 35 years of combined experience in operating experiential events, including obstacle course races, running races, experiential family events and other competitive events. The team at Cool Events produced over 120 events in 2018 between its five wildly successful brands which include: Terrain Race, Bubble Run, Foam Glow, Blacklight Run and Blacklight Slide. Bubble Run is the largest daytime 5K run in the country; Foam Glow is currently the largest nighttime 5K run in the country; Blacklight Slide is the first and only 5-story blacklight-lit neon glowing waterslide; and Terrain Race is the fastest-growing obstacle course race for all ages and athletic abilities.
It is estimated the outside events business will generate over $900 million in ticket sales in America in 2019. Based on its current model, management expects the emerging Company will produce over 120 events across America in 2019 and gross over $22 million in revenue.
William Spata, CEO of Cool Events, commented, “I have a high-level confidence that Cool Events will be one of the largest conglomerates of experiential events in the United States. My intent is to fully deploy our proprietary marketing systems and our operational know-how to scale not only the number of events but the participation levels to substantially higher levels on a per-event basis. We have already witnessed the power of these principles and have doubled or, in one instance, tripled, the number of participants thanks, in part, to our digital ad efforts.”
The Cool Events brands generated over $22 million in gross revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2017. Cool Events is reporting gross assets in excess of $4 million. The assets consist primarily of cash, merchandise and equipment. Estimated liabilities are represented to be no more than $700,000, excluding any deferred revenue liabilities.

Cool Events is committed to dedicating its events to the local community, families and children. Cool Events has aligned itself with Children’s Miracle Network, Special Olympics, Ronald McDonald House Charities and Childhood Cancer Awareness. It has donated more than $1 million to Phoenix Children’s Hospital/Children’s Miracle Network, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Special Olympics, Boys and Girls Club and many more over the years.
With this completed merger, the Company now has 207,075,187 common shares issued and outstanding and 6,993,338 that are deposited in DTCC.

Sack Lunch Productions Signs Letter of Intent to Acquire Cool Events: Reported Over $20M in Revenues for 2016Press Release | 10/03/2017
SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sack Lunch Productions, Inc. (OTC PINK:SAKL), a publicly traded entertainment company with operations in event management, announced that it has signed a Letter of Intent to acquire substantially all assets of Cool Events, LLC. Cool Events currently operates 5 wildly successful brands including: Terrain Race, The Bubble Run, Black Light Run, Foam Glow, and Black Light Slide. The brands owned by Cool Events hosted in excess of 120 events in 2016 and is on track to host 138 events in 2017.
The Cool Event brands generated over $20M in gross revenues for the year ended December 31, 2016. Cool Events is on track to generate north of $22M in revenues in 2017, with projected EBITDA in excess of $2M. Cool Events is reporting gross assets in excess of $4M. The assets consist primarily of cash, merchandise, and equipment. Estimated liabilities are represented to be no more than $500,000, excluding any deferred revenue liabilities. All financial statements provided by Cool Events are unaudited and will be subject to adjustments based upon the requirements of GAAP.
The Acquisition of Cool Events is expected to more than quadruple the scope and size of SAKL's operations in 2018. The Letter of Intent outlines a transaction that contemplates the issuance of a secured promissory note for $5M and the issuance of restricted Series A Preferred Stock with a face value of $9,725,400. The transaction also calls for the transfer of certain common and others shares to be transferred to the owners of Cool Events. The Letter of Intent further calls for the appointment of William Spata to the position of CEO and Director, as well as the appointment of Brogg Sterrett as an Executive Vice President of Operations and Director.
CEO of SAKL, Richard Surber, commented, "The proposed transaction, if consummated, will be a game changer for shareholders of SAKL. Based upon the initial proposed schedule of events for all brands coupled with the operational infrastructure and marketing model that is expected to be deployed for the 2018 season, we could very realistically be looking at the event subsidiaries generating upwards of $40M in gross revenues, with EBITDA exceeding $5M by the end of 2018. We have been working closely with Cool Events for nearly a year at this point. Over this time, I feel that we have established a rapport with the Cool Events team that will be invaluable in moving this transaction to fruition. I am ecstatic over the prospects of this combination."
William Spata, CEO of Cool Events, commented, “I have a high-level confidence that Cool Events coupled with the current Sack Lunch brands can be one of the largest conglomerates of experiential events in the United States. My intent is to fully deploy our proprietary marketing systems, and our operational know-how to scale not only the number of events, but the participation levels to substantially higher levels on a per event basis. We have already witnessed the power of these principles, not only with our events, but also at several of The Lantern Fest® events that have doubled or in one instance tripled the number of participants, in part to our digital ad efforts.”
As you can see from the above news, Cool Events does Digital Ad Work for Companies like $SAKL in addition to their own events.....It would not be a big surprise to me to see Cool Events take over some of $Sakl Events at some point in the future as these 2 companies continue to have business dealings together.
Over 60 Terrain events alone this year people..... huge revenues from this Terrain event by itself....never mind the other 6-7 events they have... https://twitter.com/michaelsauve3/status/1096980335294926848?s=21
They have separate pages on Twitter and Facebook for all of their events.....with over a million followers!
At $30 mininum per person, you are looking at potentially well over $45mil in revenues if 1.5ml people participated their events this year!
They have close to 2 million email addresses of their past participants...Once they get the new name of the company and ticker changed, they can easily contact these potential investors and spread the word that they are now public!
