The new Board of Directors made up of seasoned corporate managers is committed to increasing shareholder value first and foremost
Our business model is to vet and acquire revenue-generating companies and add value for our shareholders by retaining residual interests in the projects. The residual interests may be in the form of royalties, minority interests or equity positions. We look for companies with a sustainable competitive advantage driven by a proprietary product or differentiated business model. Our management team’s focus is on companies in the energy and technology industries as well as select emerging markets. Ultimately our goal is to acquire numerous businesses generating cash flow, and we would then remit proceeds to our shareholders in the form of a dividend.
USPR Holdings is committed to the highest standards of corporate governance and ethical conduct. We actively monitor developments in best practices and applicable laws to ensure that we meet that commitment.
Paul “Mike” Muncy
Mr. Muncy (age 63) serves the Company as its President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of Directors. For the last 5 years, Mr. Muncy, as discussed below, worked for GeoAsia Group. His industrial career began in leadership at Olga Coal Company in Coalwook, West Virginia as State Certified Miner and State Certified Underground Mining Electrician. He served as one of Olga’s Mining Electrical Supervisors primarily directing repairs of 100 ton 400VDC Jeffery Locomotive and other track equipment. He also spent time in the sections directing repairs of Joy, Lee-Norris Long-Airdox and other face equipment. Learning from his experience in safety and operations, Mr. Muncy developed a patent for a “Diode Dynamic Braking System” designed for track haulage equipment that harnessed the counter electromotive force created in DC traction motors when they are not across the line. Additionally, Muncy has Certifications from the United States Department of Interior for High Voltage Surface and Underground. He is certified by MSHA as a “Train the Trainer”. He was responsible for developing OSHA Compliance Policies for “Lock Out / Tag Out’, Positive Tie Off and has had extensive experience in Accident Prevention and Incidents Investigation. He has worked in developing corporate level policies on Ground Water control and Hazardous Waste Mitigation. He taught Maintenance Practices, Confined Space Entry, OSHA 40hr HAZMAT/HAZWOPER and drafted Corporate Policies dealing with Electrical, Mechanical, Hydraulic Accumulator, Spring Tension, Ingress/Egress and policies for interaction with personnel and Overhead Gantry Cranes. In the 1980s, Mr. Muncy became an owner operator of coal mines in West Virginia and Pennsylvania. He acquired Co-Operative Oil Investments (C.O.I.N.) based in West Virginia where he rehabilitated 42 wells producing from the Maxon Injun and Devonian formations. In collaboration with Hi-Tec Completions, his companies performed up-hole re-completions on Devonian Wells that showed suitable electric logs in the upper horizons. This effort maximized the dollars spent on the initial drilling by utilizing existing technical data to recomplete the well in the upper structure that was not produced in the initial drilling program. Muncy also introduced steam injection technology that is commonly used in the heavy oil formations of California to the “light-sweet” Pennsylvanian formations in West Virginia.
In his early years in heavy industry, Muncy was responsible for improving production efficiency thru the “Study of Repetitive Motion and Time”. As the former CEO of Allied Energy Services Corporation, Mr. Muncy predicted the downturn in utilization of fossil fuels and initiated the company’s investment into alternative energy processes, as a hedge to keep the predominately fossil fuel driven company ahead of the downturn that has currently pressured the coal industry. In taking the position with USPR, Mr. Muncy resigned from the Board of GeoAsia Pvt. Ltd. based in Singapore. He has served as the Chief Technology Officer for the GeoAsia Group and reviews new technology for suitability in the respective mining companies under the control of the Geo Asia Group. The Geo Asia Group holds in excess of 2 billion tons of coal reserves as well as copper and nickel mines in Indonesia. Muncy is also a Dispute Resolution Specialist (Arbitrator) dealing primarily with Magnuson-Moss disputes. He has done pro-bono work at the county level in West Virginia, as a mediator. We believe that Mr. Muncy’s extensive experience in coal, oil, and other extractive industries makes him the ideal leader for the future of USPR.
