FORT LAUDERDALE, FL
– Streicher Mobile Fueling, Inc. — a provider of petroleum product distribution services, transportation logistics, and emergency response services to the trucking, construction, shipping, utility, energy, chemical, manufacturing, telecom, and government service industries — will ask its shareholders to approve changing the company’s name to SMF Energy Corp. Along with the name change, the company will ask its shareholders at its planned Dec. 8, 2006, annual meeting to approve the reincorporation of the company in Delaware. A proxy statement describing the proposal will be filed with the SEC soon.
"We consider this name change and reincorporation to be the launch of the next stage in the company’s development," said Richard Gathright, chairman and CEO. "Our new name is part of a broader corporate strategy to establish an identity that reflects our company’s future and its evolution into a diversified energy service provider and product distributor serving a broad sector of businesses and industries. Our re-branding will align the company’s historical mobile fueling operations with those of its newly acquired subsidiaries, while it capitalizes on the goodwill associated with its legacy name and those of its existing subsidiaries."
