Innovest Global Inc. (OTCMarkets:IVST) (the "Company" or "Innovest"), a conglomerate with operations in commercial and industrial products and services, biotechnology, and building materials, announces that it closed the acquisition of Midwest Curtainwalls ("Midwest") on Friday afternoon.
Innovest has now completed seven transactions to round out a business platform which features million in annual revenue run-rate, from two operating divisions; as well as a Biotech Division, which owns an interest in a developmental brain cancer vaccine. Ninety percent of that revenue has been acquired in the last 45 days. The initial operating companies have grown by approximately 50% since acquisition, and have integrated synergistically.
Dan Martin, Innovest's founder, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer started Innovest just one year ago. "We've added tremendous intrinsic value to Innovest, while issuing minimal stock, no long-term debt, no risky financing transactions, and a focused effort to grow those assets once acquired. Our 2019 plan will be announced soon and involves all of the tools and progress we will need to supercharge our growth and capture that value for stockholders," he said. "Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of our stockholders, which we appreciate greatly for their confidence. Their support has given us the momentum and opportunity to grow, and I'm extremely thankful to our team for serving that opportunity to an amazing level."
John Yenges, who has been running Midwest as EVP is now it's President. "The acquisition was enthusiastically received by our client pipeline and our team, and I'm excited to couple Midwest with the philosophies and opportunities Innovest provides. I expect spectacular results," said John Yenges. Dan Martin stated, "John doesn't just 'fit in' with Innovest, he adds to Innovest. He brings a unique skillset, his own high energy, great ideas, and a motivated team. He's a true professional and a wonderful person and we are all thrilled to work with him and the people at Midwest".

MyBankTracker.com, a leading financial comparison site that matches consumers to their perfect bank, announced its annual Best of Banking Awards for 2019. The editorial staff analyzed and compared top financial institutions and products throughout the United States across various categories.
MyBankTracker.com increased the number of honors in years past from seven to 13 with additions like the best finance apps, investing tools and robo-advisors. Selections were made by evaluating criteria such as benefits, fees, interest rates, ATM access and other factors.
“When we curated our awards years ago, the focus was on banks,” said Jason Reposa, CEO and co-founder of MyBankTracker.com. “However, with the financial space constantly evolving we decided to change the awards in our tenth year. Now, we not only honor the best banks, but also a variety of financial products that help consumers manage their money on a daily basis such as apps, automated services, and loans.”
Chase took home the award for the best national bank because of its full range of deposit accounts, credit cards, extensive financial services, and investment offerings. The large branch and ATM network and mobile apps also played a part. The best online bank award went to Axos Bank for its free rewards and high-interest checking account, unlimited domestic ATM fee refunds, and no overdraft fees.
Alliant Credit Union was named the best credit union for 2019 for its availability nationwide, lenient membership eligibility requirements, low fees, and competitive interest rates. Four geographic winners were given the honor of best regional bank. Popular Bank received the award for the Northeast with BBVA Compass winning in the South. In the West, Bank of the West received the honor with Huntington Bank taking home the award in the Midwest.
“We’re on a mission - changing the way consumers bank. For years, they had to fit their needs into whatever a bank offered. Now, with tools like the Best of Banking Awards, they can find products to best fit their situation. MyBankTracker.com is putting consumers first,” Reposa noted.
Staff also examined the checking, savings and CD accounts at the biggest traditional banks, online banks, and credit unions to determine which was superior in its product group. Multiple winners were announced in numerous product categories including checking accounts, savings accounts, personal loans, certificates of deposit (CDs), money market accounts, credit cards, brokerages, robo-advisors, money-management apps, tax apps and automatic savings/investing apps. To see the full list of winners and runners-up, visit MyBankTracker.com/banking.
“We want consumers to grow their money in 2019 and decrease charges with features like no-fee accounts - ultimately maximizing their returns. Of course, everyone’s situation is different, so research is key. Not everyone has the time, so our awards can help get consumers on the right financial track to save money in the new year,” Reposa said. “Our advice? Be present. Review your statements. Educate yourself about paying your future you. You’ll likely end up with more money in your pocket.”
The awards were chosen based on various criteria to include fees, interest rates, ATM access and perks. For more information on the methodology and participating banks, visit MyBankTracker.com/banking.
