Car Charging Group: Ripe For Acquisition?

In a year’s time, tiny Car Charging Group (OTC: CCGI) has acquired four competitors and become the largest independent owner and operator of EV charging infrastructure. With the speed at which CEO Michael Farkas has consolidated the industry, one has to wonder if he is getting Car Charging ready for a timely sale.
