According to a report accessed The Republic, the company in question failed to submit its financial statements for the last three years, as required by the process. He only presented those corresponding to fiscal year 2021.

To correct this irregularity, Ready Oil Supply LLC assured that during the years 2019 and 2020 it ceased activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic, “so it had no operations.” Product of this justification is that it continues in the race until it wins the contest.

However, the Comptroller found that said statement “it is not true”, since it is not consistent with what is expressed in its company constitution, in which it is certified that it is a limited liability company and organized on February 4, 2021. The information was corroborated on the website of the Department of State from Florida, United States.
