February 25, 2019

PHOENIX, Feb. 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Everett Jolly of Uptick Newswire will interview (CEO) John Ayling of LD Holdings, Inc. (OTC: LDHL) which is an early stage publicly traded company, seeking to capitalize on the massive transfer of small “Baby- Boomer” businesses into the next generation of ownership.

-- Over the next 15-20 years, there will be businesses worth trillions of dollars that need to be sold, financed and transitioned into new management -- There is a gap in available financing for businesses between $2-$20million in sales and EBITDA (Earnings Before Taxes Depreciation and Amortization) between $500,000 and $3 million. -- Many Baby Boomers will be forced to provide financing to sell their businesses, resulting in sales below the true market value. -- The increased supply and decrease of valuations give leverage to buyers.

Discussions include:

LD Holdings, Inc., located in Perrysburg, Ohio, is a financial and management holding company that has identified a significant business opportunity. LD Holdings is in the business of acquiring profitable baby boomer-owned businesses. These businesses have:

-- Brand equity -- Quality personnel and management -- $2-$20 million in revenues -- And, the prospect of creating a portfolio that will yield great venture capital returns with minimal venture capital risk.

The business plan is to draw:

-- Small baby boomer business owners -- Younger entrepreneurial leaders -- And, financial investors together

The intent is to fill a void in the small business world, in 4-5 sustainable industries, regarding the sale and transfer of businesses from baby boomer owners to the next generation. The company’s research shows that there are more than 25 million small businesses in the United States, collectively valued at more than $17 trillion, that will be sold in the next 15-20 years.

We want to solve the problem for these business owners who have a difficult time getting full value because the financing is:

-- Too large for most individuals to finance -- Too risky for banks based upon the company’s individual merits -- And, too small to interest most institutional investors to consider.

(The lack of liquidity makes it difficult to raise funds privately from anyone but relatives and friends)

LD Holdings intends to take advantage of this seemingly negative funding situation and turn it into a positive one. Many Baby Boomer business owners will be forced to provide a major portion of the financing in order to sell their businesses, resulting in sales below their true market value.

In our first full year of operations, after adequate financing, our objective is to acquire at least three companies with $25 million sales and EBIT of $2.5 million. Within five years, LD Holdings plans to accumulate at least 50 of these small companies and to slowly meld them into cohesive business units. The company’s objective, through aggressive use of the internet, is that while a search for acquisitions is being conducted, it will establish an outside investor base that “shares” the company’s vision and objectives and is willing to hold their positions for a year or more.

We are achieving scale by employing a buy and build strategy through acquisitions and organic growth. LD Holdings purchased, through its subsidiary Green Acquisitions, LLC., a platform company in the Green Industry and will acquire several complimentary companies around that platform. We have begun to fill the gap that exists for baby boomers looking to retire and the need to find buyers for their businesses. We are here to solve the problem for those small yet successful business owners and provide an opportunity for investors to succeed, as well as provide opportunities for Young Entrepreneurial Leaders to emerge. Our focus will be to acquire businesses in industries that are driven by opportunities.

LD Holdings acquired its Green Industry company located in Columbus Ohio in January of 2018. They are a lucrative, quality oriented, well managed Landscape Design and Construction Firm. They are an award-winning organization providing services for Home Owners Associations, Residential and Commercial Properties. They provide services for more than 700 customers. And we expect sales this year at $1.3 million and an EBITDA at 10.7%.

Looking to capitalize on that investment, we are reviewing an Irrigation and Installation company which has a great reputation for Customer Service and Reliability. They have been in business since 2000 and are well known in the Region, yet on the opposite end of Columbus. This organization has yearly recurring revenue for:

-- Spring start up -- Winterization service -- And backflow testing

They are Irrigation and Installation Service Experts. They specialize in repair/installation of underground drainage, French drains and water issues. Customers are offered service and maintenance packages to secure yearly business. Currently they service more than 1100 customers, and in 2018, sales of more than $500K, and an EBITDA of 25%. Adding this company into its platform will allow us to continue our buy and build strategy and enable us to remove redundant overhead cost and increase sales and margins to each company’s regional customer base. This ability to upsell products to our customers is now provided by the complimentary expertise in a very sustainable industry. Through this foresight we will be able to double our profitability in this area.

LD Holdings will serve as a platform to bring together Baby Boomer Businesses, Investors, and Younger Entrepreneurial Managers. Our goal is to bring an integrated collaborative synergy to the process of transferring Baby Boomer Businesses to the next generation of managers. Together with our investors, LD Holdings can serve the needs of business owners, while helping the next generation to become successful entrepreneurs.
