May. 15, 2018
NASHVILLE, TN, May 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LIG Assets, Inc. (OTC PINK: LIGA) (also known as the "Leader in Green Assets" or "LIGA"), is extremely proud to announce the Company’s significantly increased financial results for the first quarter of 2018. The following Corporate filing information and documentation has been submitted to OTC Markets and the quarterly report was uploaded on Monday, May 14th.
First Quarter 2018 Highlights:
LIGA is very pleased to confirm that Company gross revenues in Q1 nearly surpassed LIGA’s entire 2017 YTD revenues. First quarter revenues were $1,266,737.00 compared to no operating revenues the prior year Q1 2017 quarter. It is important to note that LIGA continues our commitment to shareholders of drastically eliminating debt by paying off or negotiating debt reduction deals.
Also, in the first quarter of 2018, LIG Assets secured 60 acres in Brentwood, Tennessee documented as one of the richest and fastest growing communities in America. The Company’s plan is to create substantial valuations and assets for LIGA moving forward via Company subsidiaries BGTV and LIG Developments (LIGD) as well as future Company acquisitions, mergers, Joint Venture Partnerships, spin-off’s and additional planned subsidiaries.
Recently appointed Company President, Marvin Baker, restated LIGA’s continued commitment that there will be no reverse split or any increase of authorized shares per the Company’s stated promise to shareholders not to reverse split the stock below at least .05 per share. In addition, LIG Assets has been securing business opportunities and multiple high-value properties with unique funding solutions that do not require Company stock to secure those deals.
Company Chairman Aric Simons states, "As we grow this company organically, we expect accelerating growth to continue with the launch of sales of the homes in the Brentwood development that appear to set to exceed our original forecasts both in terms of revenue and timelines based upon favorable survey and geotechnical testing coupled with the seemingly exponential demand occurring in the Brentwood area." Simons continued, "LIGA continues to work diligently towards creating new revenue sources and aggressively pursuing new strategic development opportunities for LIGA and its subsidiaries some of which will be announced soon. I'm very pleased with the new management team that we've assembled and their due diligence on all fronts including, but not limited to, creating diverse and substantial revenue sources for the company, identifying and competitively bidding on new contracts, reconciling and modernizing our financials, diminishing debt through strategic payment solutions, past debt reduction through negotiated settlement, and eliminating unverifiable debt. LIGA continues to make better than expected progress to achieving rapid growth goals with the intention of transcending to the next level from the OTC market as soon as possible. I believe that our investors and prospective investors will look at the first quarter of 2018 as another important benchmark to that end. LIGA will continue to grow with sound business practices, intelligent allocation of assets and investments and a dynamic, creative and experienced management team that will ensure our investors will be proud to be owners while enjoying significant returns on their investment in LIGA.”
Business Developments and News:
In addition to LIGA posting Q1 2018 revenues of over $1.26 million (very close to what LIG Assets did in 2017), shareholders will be pleased to know that BGTV Direct, Inc. will be making several major announcements regarding the launch of several new ventures in the near future that will have a major impact on the Company’s potential and greatly increase Company revenues and profits.
LIGA will also be announcing in the very near future many new partnerships and deals through LIGA's partners, associates and joint ventures, and LIGA’s subsidiary Live Stor America is ramping up with several major announcements as well. We encourage all interested parties and especially our shareholders to follow events closely in the days and weeks ahead via press releases, social media, on our Company websites and our LIGA Shareholder Newsletter, which interested parties can subscribe to at www.LIGAHomes.com
Combined, LIGA bank account balances, as of close of business, May 14, 2018, were over $225,798.86 plus $32,500.00 in outstanding receivables at the end of Q1 providing more than ample liquidity to move the Company forward and complete all of our planned objectives.
Shareholders will also be pleased to know that LIG Assets has submitted all pertaining corporate documentation and resolutions to the OTC Markets and the Secretary of State in Nevada and has updated all of LIG Assets information. In addition, a new LIGA website for LIGA Homes is in the final stages of completion and will be launched with a whole new branding strategy.
CFO Douglas Vaughn states “Over the past year, LIGA has progressed from almost non-existent revenue to over $1.26 million during the first quarter 2018. Although many investors are focused on the Brentwood Project – with good reason – I want to highlight that BGTV Direct is growing rapidly. And we expect new media projects in the very near future. The Brentwood Real Estate Project will allow BGTV Direct to reinvest its cash flow back into BGTV Direct and would allow more growth in the future. We will work as fast as prudently possible to move Brentwood towards lot sales. Once that is achieved, we can begin interviewing auditors to take advantage of new OTC Markets rules to move off the Pink Sheets and work to achieve OTCQB status.”
