SCOTTSDALE, AZ and CALGARY, AB, Nov. 13, 2014 /CNW/ - RDX Technologies Corporation ("RDX" or the "Company") (TSXV: RDX, OTCQX: RGDEF, FSE:RL7), a water treatment and energy technology company, today announces the formation of a new U.S. based corporation, managerial promotions, and that Hank Habicht will join the Company as advisor to the Board of Directors.
RDX has started the process of forming a separate corporation and completing the necessary legal filings to begin trading in the United States ("U.S. Trading Entity"). The new U.S. Trading Entity will be based solely in the United States to attract primary contracts in the water treatment and energy sectors that cannot be successfully financed within RDX Technologies Corporation which is based and traded on the Toronto Venture Exchange. The new U.S. based entity will grant proportional shares to all current Company shareholders under a new capital structure plan ("Plan") now being completed at the Company's corporate headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona. The Plan will be presented on the RDX Technologies Corporation website on December 2, 2014.
The purpose of the U.S. Trading Entity is to directly list on a stock exchange in the United States in order to comply with U.S. securities laws as well as open financial participation to the larger market and investor pool, including larger institutional investors, based in the U.S., while increasing shareholder value for all current shareholders of RDX Technologies Corporation.
In addition, the Company announces two financial management promotions. Kevin Bridges has been named Chief Financial Officer for the new U.S. Trading Entity. Mr. Bridges has resigned his position as CFO of RDX. Mr. Bridges' new role will include forming, structuring and holding senior charge of all financial and legal filings required for the new U.S. Trading Entity that is targeted to begin trading late in the first calendar quarter of 2015. Mr. Bridges' new expanded role will also include the formation and development of RDX Europe beginning in December of this year.
Candy Blazar has been named Chief Financial Officer of RDX Technologies Corporation, pending the filing of a personal information form and approval of the exchange. Ms. Blazar has served as Business Manager / Controller of RDX refinery operations and has been with the Company for approximately two and a half years. Ms. Blazar originally held the position of Controller at the Carthage refinery. Candy will be relocating to Scottsdale, Arizona. Ms. Blazar holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Missouri Southern State University, and a Master of Business Administration, Missouri State University. Ms. Blazar has extensive accounting and controller experience, holding senior positions in engineering, refining and manufacturing companies.

Dennis M. Danzik, RDX CEO stated, "After almost six months of rebuilding RDX refinery structures and investing in expanded manufacturing capabilities, RDX will now enter a phase where revenue growth can be accelerated.
