IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 9, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Future City Holding (OTCQB:FTCY) (the "Company") announced a change in its future business plans today. FTCY had previously focused on integrating the crypto-asset, E-Gold ("EGD"), into its business plan by requesting a No-Action position by the Securities Exchange Commission. Today the Company announced the withdrawal of the Request for No-Action Relief Letter. The Company determined that it would not proceed with the proposed activities outlined in the Letter.
Concurrently, the Company announced the submission of a Post-Effective Amendment to the Company's Registration Statement, filed on October 8, 2015. The Amendment detailed an agreement entered into by the Company with GX-Life Global, Inc. a Nevada corporation. The Company via its wholly-owned subsidiary Global Modern Enterprise Limited, a Hong Kong Entity (the "EGD Subsidiary") entered into a Share Exchange Agreement with GX-Life Global, whereby the Company spun-off 100% of its ownership interest in the EGD Subsidiary and 4,000,000 EGD in exchange for 100% of the outstanding common stock of GX-Life Global.
In a related transaction, on October 2, 2015, pursuant to a Private Stock Purchase Agreement, the former shareholders of GX-Life Global sold 100% of their ownership interests in the EGD Subsidiary acquired in the Share Exchange Agreement and $600,000 USD to Company shareholders Future Continental Limited, Discover Future Limited, and Global Future Development Limited (the "Controlling Shareholders"). The former shareholders sold their interests in exchange for 21,280,000 shares of the Company's common stock that the Controlling Shareholders previously acquired in that certain Stock Purchase Agreement with Sky Rover (the "Sky Rover SPA") which closed on April 17, 2015 and was disclosed pursuant to a Current Report on Form 8-K dated April 20, 2015 (the "Private Stock Purchase Agreement") (collectively, the "Transactions").
As a result of the Transactions, much of the Sky Rover SPA has been effectively unwound and the 4,000,000 E-Gold crypto-assets are no longer owned or controlled by the Company or any of its subsidiaries.
In addition, the Transactions effectuated a change in control of the Company, as the former shareholders of GX-Life Global acquired 21,280,000 shares of the Company's common stock representing an aggregate voting power of 45.9%. Individually, however, (i) Michael Dunn acquired an additional 24.1% voting power of the Company's common stock, (ii) Ning Liu acquired 2.6% voting power of the Company's common stock, and (iii) Masuya Tomoe acquired an additional 26.65% voting power of the Company's common stock. The former shareholders of GX-Life Global are all unaffiliated from one another, and none of them have a beneficial interest or hold any ownership interest in each other's entity and disclaim status as a "group" as defined by SEC Rules. These shareholders will file the requisite beneficial ownership forms with the SEC regarding the acquisition of their shares.
