Free Flow, Inc. (FFLO) Announces Agreement to Acquire Leading eSports Sim Racing and Media Platform GTR24H
GTR24H's global multi-platform growth strategy spans content, gaming, entertainment, and consumer products, including potential growth acquisitions
KING GEORGE, VA, Dec. 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Free Flow, Inc. (OTCQB: FFLO), with subsidiaries in the automotive and investment sectors, today announced a definitive acquisition agreement under which the Company would acquire all issued and outstanding common stock of GTR24h ApS (“GTR24H”), a leader in the simulation (“sim”) racing esports “Gaming-as-a-Service” (GaaS) market. Under terms of the agreement, GTR24H, a corporation organized and in good standing in Denmark, would become a wholly owned subsidiary of Free Flow, Inc.
The proposed business acquisition has been approved by the boards of directors of both GTR24H and Free Flow, Inc. and is expected to close in the first quarter of 2022, subject to an audit of the GTR24H financials and any applicable regulatory and stockholder approvals.
Through the proposed business acquisition, GTR24H is positioned to become one of the leading European eSports media and sim racing events companies with distribution channels to MotorVision TV, ESTV and in 2022, to EuroSport TV to become part of a U.S. publicly traded company.
GTR24H is at the forefront of the global creator economy -- an industry centered around innovative digital content development fueled by social media influencers, creators and businesses who monetize their content online. With a leading digital content platform created for and by Gen Z and millennials, GTR24H is in the process to establish a highly engaged, loyal global fan base of millions across its combined television networks, mobile apps, and social platforms that rivals established sim racing and eSports leagues, numbers that rival traditional sports leagues.
GTR24H is the next generation of metaverse entertainment for the next generation.
GTR24H produces premium eSports and sim racing events content, merchandise, and consumer products and creates advertising and sponsorship programs for leading technology and eSports-ready advertisers. With a global prospective audience reach over 400 million through distribution partners and networks, which include MotorVision TV and in 2022 EuroSport TV, GTR24H is positioned as the first eSports media broadcasting and commentary platform and sim racing events platform to unlock key relationships with a coveted demographic among millennials and Generation Z influencers across the metaverse, groups that have long proven difficult to reach for traditional media companies and advertisers.
With funding from the proposed business acquisition, GTR24H plans to further diversify its revenue streams with user monetization, expansion of its global footprint, and investment in new growth opportunities across the creator economy and emerging technologies in addition to a robust acquisition strategy that will only strengthen its flywheel model.
Upon closing, the GTR24H will continue being led by its CEO, Jon Fabricus Turell, his advisors, and several FFLO insiders and related advisors.
Mr. Sabir Saleem, Chief Executive Officer of Free Flow Inc., commented, "The business acquisition of GTR24H represents a tremendous opportunity to invest in the future of eSports broadcast media and sim racing media event entertainment. With unmatched social media reach and Gen Z engagement, and the opportunity to meaningfully expand its global multi-platform presence across content, gaming, entertainment, consumer products and the metaverse, we believe GTR24H has the potential to create significant value for Free Flow, Inc. We are excited to have Jon Turell, as CEO of GTR24H, and his advisory team at Alpha Deal Group, led by Ian Roberts, join our leadership team. FFLO has surrounded itself with an exceptional team and advisors, and we look forward to much success in our enterprise together.”
Jon Fabricus Turell said, "We are thrilled to announce this important milestone of GTR24H's plans to enter the public market. In our short history, we have evolved from a disruptive content generator to one of the world's most decorated and successful esports franchises, and now into one of the younger generation’s most recognized and followed brands globally. We believe GTR24H is becoming the leader of next generation sim racing media and entertainment, gaming, entertainment and lifestyle in the digital-native world. This transaction will provide us capital and access to the public markets, which will help us accelerate the expansion of our multi-platform and monetization strategy. We are so grateful to our team, our advisors and the millions of loyal fans who have helped us take GTR24H to the next level. We also look forward to working with Sabir Saleem and the FFLO board and advisors to make FFLO a highly valued asset.”
An investor presentation with more detailed information will be added to the Company’s website, and a Current Report on Form 8-K regarding the agreement will be filed with the SEC in the coming days.
