American Equity Fund LLC announces Robert C. Rhodes appointed Managing Member

Sugar Land, Texas (September 5, 2012) – American Equity Fund LLC (“AEF”) announces today that its founding member and Rhodes Holdings LLC have come to the conclusion of negotiations to name Robert C. Rhodes of Rhodes Holdings LLC as managing member of AEF.  Working as partners on a number of projects together, Rhodes Holdings LLC and ReCap Marketing & Consulting, LLP (Hunter M.A. Carr, founding member and general partner) determined their interests aligned perfectly on what was missing from the arena that both worked – micro-cap publicly traded companies.  This missing component was non-death spiral funding.

This announcement follows more than six (6) months of review of previous funding(s) that Rhodes Holdings LLC and ReCap Marketing & Consulting, LLP have been a party to, as well review of competing equity line facilities in order to construct an AEF equity line facility that will only enhance shareholder value.

Going green and listening in…

Official seal of City of Sugar Land

Sugar Land, TX making a “Green” difference

I personally like to be “green”, recycling everything possible and consuming less – that is, if it is easy and doesn’t cost more than doing what we have done previously.  This is the mantra that I would like politicians in Washington, let that read “Congressmen (and women), Senators, Presidents,…”, understand.  Funding environmentally focused industry is fine if it “helps” them, but subsidizing industries that will never be self sufficient is lunacy.

That is why I am so proud of the City of Sugar Land.  Last year, Sugar Land instituted a new curbside recycling program (and trash pickup) that made it EASY TO RECYCLE.  Yes, easy.  Not only that, but it increased the items that the city would recycle.  This has led to a 200 percent increase in recycling, just in the first four months of 2012.  The Fort Bend Star has a great article on this with specifics entitled “Recycling increase 200 percent in Sugar Land“.

Take a look at the City of Sugar Land’s website page on recycling as well.

Google was listening to your WiFi network at your house

Have you seen the Google vans going around taking pictures for their street level mapping service?  I am sure that you have used Google Maps and been able to drop down to the street level view and thought, like me, that this was the coolest thing since sliced bread.  But here is the scary thing about this is that they were taking a look at what WiFi spots were around – and were they open or not.

As related by Steven Vaughan-Nichols in his article on ZDNet, Google got their hands slapped for this, but not for mapping this information.  It got its hand slapped for not answered the government’s request.  You read the article and tell me what you think..

Rhodes Holdings enters into LOI with two restaurants

(Sugar Land, Texas) February 21, 2012 – Rhodes Holdings LLC (“RHL”) has entered into joint letters of intent (“LOI”) to acquire two restaurants in the Fort Bend County area.  The restaurant concepts are diametrically opposed, casual dining pizzeria and fine dining restaurant, but both restaurants share common characteristics, including:

  • Break even operations
  • A concept that supports doubling revenue at a 35%+ profit margin
  • Currently no marketing budget
  • A fresh renovation

While working with the restaurant management group that owns both restaurants, RHL decided that entering into an LOI to acquire both restaurants was the best way to seek the hidden value within each restaurant.  RHL seeks to close the acquisition or other disposition of the restaurants within 90 days.

Rhodes Holdings’ ability to model businesses and unlock the value for the current owners has led us into interesting territory,said Robert C. Rhodes, Managing Member at RHL.  “We have worked with the current management company for three months and will seek to retain them in an ongoing fashion with the restaurants currently under LOI.  This arrangement as well as our financing capabilities will allows us to add to our investments in the restaurant business through opportunistic acquisitions.
