Arrows Up Reports More Anticompetitive Litigation by US Silica
HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Arrows Up, LLC received a Plaintiff’s Petition in the SandBox Logistics,
LLC v. Arrows Up, LLC case in the 334th Judicial District of Harris
County demanding title to and possession of frac sand shipping container
assets as per an October 2, 2018 judgment. Arrows Up has obtained a
stay, is currently seeking relief in the Texas Court of Appeals and will
contest this latest competition-stifling litigation by SandBox
Logistics, a wholly-owned subsidiary of US Silica Holdings (NYSE-SLCA).
“We understand that the ongoing litigation between Arrows Up and SandBox
LLC may raise concerns for our customers and are committed to being as
transparent as possible while we progress through the appeals process.
It is our attorney’s position that the lower court conversion rights are
not enforceable while the appeal process unfolds, so all of our assets
remain owned by Arrows Up, LLC. and we will continue doing business with
our customers as usual,” said Kevin Shuba, CEO of Arrows Up managing
Arrows Up and its affiliate OmniTRAX Energy Solutions (OES) continue to
grow their multi-basin operations and product innovations to meet their
clients’ growing needs. OES recently launched ShaleTECH
Transportation, a joint venture that provides dramatic cost savings
as part of a total sand transportation solution.
In addition to the Texas State Court appeal, Arrows Up continues its
federal suit against SandBox to protect its first-in-time superior
intellectual property rights.
