Additional details of its large probable reserves, management's history, and additional merger details will be announced soon.
Finally, it is noted that management of the merged entity has no current plans to execute a reverse split of LIGA. However, the Company has plans to trade on a more senior exchange in the future with audited financials that may require restructuring at some point. Management of the entire merged entity is focused on greatly improving shareholder value, and firmly believes it will deliver.
Jeff Love, COO of LIG Assets, stated, "We recognized the need to do something significant to benefit our shareholders." He continued, "Through our merger with a Company with revenue, assets, huge potential, and a capable management team under one roof, we believe we can more effectively operate our real estate division while adding the huge potential that the oil business offers."
