MicroCapClub Invitational: Greystone Logistics (GLGI)


Published on

A few months ago I wrote an article entitled: 8 Habits Of Highly Effective MicroCap CEO’s. Greystone Logistics (GLGI) CEO Warren Kruger is one of the few CEO’s I’ve met recently that meets all 8 criteria. Warren Kruger owns 30% of the company, takes an average salary, buys stock in the open market every quarter, and has invested over $10 million of his own money to turn the company around. I would also add that there has been little to no share dilution for several years. With the turnaround complete, the stage is set for a growth story to emerge. Greystone Logistics is the only public company focused on manufacturing and leasing plastic pallets, the fastest growing segment of the $9.5 billion pallet industry. The company is currently trading at 4x TTM EPS. This is the first time the company has presented anywhere, so listen to CEO Warren Kruger as he tells the story.
