LAKEWOOD, N.J., Aug. 14, 2019
LAKEWOOD, N.J., Aug. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Reliance Global Group, Inc. (OTC: RELI) ("Reliance" or the "Company"), today provided a business update and reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019. The Company also reported that its new corporate website is live and available at www.relianceglobalgroup.com.
Ezra Beyman, CEO of Reliance Global Group, stated, "I am pleased to report we are making tremendous progress on a number of fronts. Our affiliated privately-owned entity, Reliance Global Holdings, LLC completed the previously announced acquisition of Fortman Insurance Agency, LLC, as well as Southwestern Montana Insurance Agency. We are also on track to complete the previously announced acquisition of another independent insurance agency, this one focused on employee benefits, in the third quarter of 2019, which we expect will further enhance our presence within the employee benefits sector. Upon completion of this latest acquisition, we expect to roll the Fortman Insurance Agency, as well as Southwestern Montana Insurance Agency and the agency which specializes in employee benefits, into Reliance Global Group. Upon completion of these three acquisitions by Reliance Global Group, we expect the annual revenue run rate of our combined agency business to be nearly $5 million, and cash flow positive."
"These transactions are consistent with our strategy of acquiring growing, cash flow positive insurance agencies, where we can help drive top-line growth and improved profitability by leveraging our national infrastructure, first-class technology and our national sales and marketing platform. Towards this end, we recently acquired The Referral Depot (TRD), a software-based referral program created exclusively for the insurance industry. TRD's easy-to-use software streamlines the process for third-party insurance professionals to refer business, including policies they are unable to write, to Reliance Global Group or its affiliates for a commission split or other incentive."
"In the real estate sector, our goal is to acquire multifamily properties totaling in excess of $500 million in appraised value within 1-2 years. Specifically, we are targeting properties priced below market with opportunities to maximize rent revenue. Once acquired, we are able to utilize our management expertise to derive increased cash flow from the properties. When a particular property achieves our capital appreciation targets, we may sell the property to capitalize on the higher value. Following this disciplined strategy, the principals of Reliance have successfully generated attractive risk-adjusted returns for the past 30 years."
"Finally, we are making rapid progress completing the audit of our financial statements to become fully reporting with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, which we expect to finish during Q4 2019. The June 30, 2019 quarter's results include the high public company costs as well as expansion costs; however, upon integration of the acquisitions, we expect to generate meaningful economies of scale and positive cash flow. Our goal remains to list on a national exchange as soon as possible thereafter. I am also pleased to report we have now moved into our new corporate headquarters in a beautiful Class A office building in Lakewood, NJ and we invite our shareholders to schedule an appointment to visit and meet with management. Overall, we are extremely encouraged by the outlook for the business and look forward to providing further updates."
