IRVING, Texas and GARLAND, Texas, Nov. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Breeze Holdings Acquisition Corp. (Nasdaq: BREZ) (“Breeze Holdings”), a publicly traded special purpose acquisition company, has entered into a definitive agreement to merge with TV Ammo, Inc. (“True Velocity” or the “Company”), an advanced technology manufacturing company aimed at disrupting the global ammunition industry. Following the closing, Breeze Holdings will be renamed “True Velocity, Inc.”

Developing Advanced Solutions for an Antiquated Global Industry

True Velocity is an advanced technology manufacturing company focused on developing and producing ammunition utilizing cutting-edge composite materials for military, law enforcement and commercial applications. Through its state-of-the-art, composite-cased cartridges, the Company is on a mission to revolutionize the ammunition industry by giving end users unmatched accuracy, repeatability, and reliability.

True Velocity has designed an advanced, lightweight composite-cased cartridge that:

  • Results in an approximate 30% weight reduction as compared to traditional brass-cased cartridges;
  • Provides exceptional accuracy and consistency;
  • Reduces heat transfer to the weapon platform resulting in less wear and tear;
  • Provides substantial shipping and logistical cost savings while enhancing strategic and operational benefits;
  • Achieves greater safety for users by eliminating heavy metals such as lead from the cartridge case and reduces the likelihood of heat-induced discharge;
  • Allows for a significant reduction in production footprint;
  • Scales and adapts to all calibers; and
  • Drives production advancement to support distributive manufacturing in support of on-demand production and near-end user distribution.

The Company has approximately 300 patents issued and pending surrounding its products, technology, and innovative manufacturing processes.

True Velocity is aiming to disrupt the way ammunition has historically been manufactured through the development of modular, portable production cells, each of which is capable of producing more than 15 million rounds per year on a compact footprint. True Velocity’s advanced manufacturing cells employ best-in-class autonomous production and assembly processes while simultaneously providing and analyzing comprehensive quality control and inspection data.

True Velocity Partnership with Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s (“Bass Pro”)

On October 31, 2022, True Velocity and Bass Pro, North America’s premier outdoor and conservation company, entered a 3- to 5-year strategic partnership through which True Velocity will sell its ammunition across all channels within Bass Pro, the #1 outdoor retailer in the world. The shared intent is to expand this unique relationship leveraging True Velocity’s advanced manufacturing technology and Bass Pro’s significant market presence to optimize the production, distribution, and sale of ammunition within the U.S. commercial market.

The initial companywide order will place and amplify True Velocity products in 127 Bass Pro locations this quarter. True Velocity plans to introduce additional SKUs for multiple calibers during 2023 with continued Bass Pro amplification to highlight the future of ammunition. 

The strategic partnership will also establish a Bass Pro/True Velocity ammunition subscription service designed to seamlessly service the 200+ million customers that visit a Bass Pro each year with delivery direct to their front door. It is a shared goal of True Velocity and Bass Pro that hunters and recreational shooters will never experience empty shelves again.

Bass Pro is the leading retailer for those passionate about the outdoors. With retail stores across North America, an exceptional online shopping experience and more than 200 million annual customers, Bass Pro provides True Velocity with significant exposure to a large consumer base in the retail sector.
