CANTON, Ga., Oct. 22, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Blue Water Global Group, Inc. (OTCBB:BLUU) is issuing this update to keep its shareholders apprised of the current state of progress and timing for both its premium rums and Blue Water Bar & Grill™ presently under development in St. Maarten, Dutch West Indies.
Yesterday, October 21, 2014, our initial shipment of bottles, stoppers, four-color box cases, etc. was shipped from our Chinese manufacturer in two ocean going containers. The high-end luxury silk screen bottles are now on their way to our bottler in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. The final number of 1-liter bottles included in this shipment was 13,167 of our Blue Water Ultra Premium Rum™ and 5,781 of our Blue Water Caribbean Gold™ Premium Rum.
Since this was the initial order our bottle manufacturer incurred additional delays beyond our control. In the future we will be able to adjust the lead times to ensure we maintain sufficient quantities of inventory at all times. Photos of the containers being loaded can be viewed on Blue Water's Facebook page.
Additionally, we have continued to maintain discussions with regional Caribbean distributors that are interested in distributing our premium rums. Our first choice of distributors has agreed to undertake a trial offering of our premium rums at both the Port of St. Maarten and in the duty free shopping area of St. Maarten's airport as soon as we can supply them with sufficient quantities of our rums.
Blue Water Bar & Grill™
Presently, and while we continue to wait for the approval of our building plans and the issuance of the necessary building permits from the St. Maarten government, we have put the building plans out to three general contractors for bidding on the project. We should have these bids back by mid-November. Once we make a selection on the general contractor, we will advise our shareholders of the selection through a formal press release.
We are awaiting final approval from Stream Flow Media's management and legal counsel to submit their Form 15c2-11 to FINRA. Once submitted and approved by FINRA, Stream Flow will receive a trading symbol on the OTCBB which will enable us to move forward with getting them approved by the Depository Trust Company (DTC) and getting FINRA approval of our planned stock dividend.
In relation to our Next Level Hockey, LLC investment, they are preparing to start the same process undertaken by Stream Flow in early 2015 as soon as they can complete an audit of their financial statements for the period ending December 31, 2014. During the current fiscal period Next Level will convert from an LLC to a "C" corporation in anticipation of going public.
Lastly, we are continuing to have discussions with a third prospective investment. We hope to finalize an agreement with them during the current fiscal period. Once finalized, we will advise our shareholders of their name and business through a formal press release.
Blue Water's President and CEO, J. Scott Sitra, stated, "We continue to remain very active in all of our operating business units. We are extremely pleased that our initial order of premium rum bottles has finally been fulfilled and are eagerly looking forward to selecting a general contractor for our flagship Blue Water Bar & Grill™ in St. Maarten. Further, our equity investments are starting to take shape and should start contributing to enhancing our balance sheet as originally planned." Mr. Sitra added, "All in all, our plans and visions are being realized and we are setting Blue Water up for an even more exciting year in 2015."
