MISSION VIEJO, Calif., May 12, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Future City Holding, Inc. (OTCQB:FTCY) (the "Company") announced that it filed a Form S-1 Registration Statement under the Securities Act of 1933 ("S-1") on May 8, 2015 for the initial registration of 10 million shares of its common stock. The initial offering price of the securities will be determined by the Company's Board of Directors prior to the effectiveness of the S-1. Among the factors considered in determining the public offering price of the shares will be: the industry in which we operate; our past and present operating results; recent prices at which we have attracted capital and the general condition of the securities markets at the time of the offering.
The S-1 relating to the registration of these securities has been filed with the SEC but has not yet become effective. These securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the effectiveness of the S-1. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy these securities, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification of these securities under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
The Company will use the proceeds from the offering to concentrate on acquiring real estate projects using its recently purchased EB-5 Regional Center, the International EGD Loyalty Reward Program, working capital and other general corporate purposes the Company's Board of Directors deems to be in the best interests of the Company. EGD is a form of cryptoasset and reported trading activity can be reviewed at www.egdmarket.com. Because the use of crypto-assets like EGD have only been recently used in business operations, the Company has filed a Request for No-Action Letter ("No Action Letter") with the Securities Exchange Commission ("SEC") to seek further guidance since the legal and accounting treatment for crypto-assets like EGD will continue to develop. An EB-5 Regional Center is an organization, designated and regulated by USCIS, which facilitates investments in job-creating economic development projects by pooling capital raised under the EB-5 immigrant investor program.
About Global Future City Holding, Inc.

(OTCQB:FTCY) (the "Company") is currently a holding company focused on implementing an EB-5 immigrant investor program for foreign investors who are interested in acquiring lawful permanent residence in the United States, and the marketing and deployment of an EGD loyalty-based retail program. As a result of recent transactions with Sky Rover Holdings, Ltd.

Of the six (6) intended subsidiaries, two (2) have been incorporated as of the date of this press release, two (2) are not yet subsidiaries of the Company but may be pending the satisfactory audit of the entities, and two (2) have not yet been incorporated. Ultimately, the Company intends to drive its EGD loyalty-based retail program through retail sales via its Merchant, Energy Drink and Mobile Subsidiaries with the Software support of its IP Subsidiary and the asset-based financial support of its EGD Subsidiary (collectively, the "Proposed Business Model").
The Company has also recently formed Global Modern Enterprise Limited ("EGD Subsidiary"), a Hong Kong entity, which was transferred 4,000,000 EGD acquired in the Sky Rover Stock Purchase Agreement, and plans to begin selling this EGD only to foreign individuals and entities located outside the United States. Initially, the EGD Subsidiary will operate mainly to provide financial support to the Company's operations. Additional information regarding EGD may be viewed at http://www.egoldcoin.com/index.html.
