Liquid Avatar Technologies Receives Offer to Sell Metaverse and Proof of Humanity Programs
Liquid Avatar Technologies provides shareholder update.
August 21, 2023 –Toronto, Canada / Bridgetown, Barbados – Liquid Avatar Technologies Inc. (CSE:LQID / OTC:LQAVF / FRA:4T5) (“Liquid Avatar” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has received a non-binding offer for its controlled subsidiary, Aftermath Islands Metaverse Limited (“Aftermath Islands”) and its Liquid Avatar Mobile App from a private Swiss based Metaverse and virtual experience organization. Contingent on financing in an amount to be agreed, final agreements and financial terms being agreed, and all necessary approvals, the transaction, should it come to fruition, is expected to provide Liquid Avatar Technologies with cash, primarily for debt reduction, and an expected significant amount of equity in the new parent company.
Management and the Board of Directors believe that this opportunity provides long term optimal value for shareholders and is working with all parties to complete due diligence. The teams have undertaken to begin working on definitive agreements. Completion of the transaction will require all necessary corporate, shareholder and any regulatory approvals. Additional information will be provided on this potential transaction upon definitive agreements being executed. During this period, the Company will remain focused on completing this opportunity as it does not have the resources to finalize its outstanding financial statements in order to seek a revocation of the existing cease trade order.
Aftermath Islands Metaverse may continue to pursue its own, non-dilutive financing efforts in the short term. As announced in April 2023, Aftermath Islands received an executed share purchase agreement from a Family Office in the UK and EU but has yet to receive any funding. As a result of these unfulfilled obligations on the part of the Family Office, Aftermath Islands Metaverse Limited is in the process of terminating that agreement and may seek other financing opportunities.
As part of its ongoing marketing and business efforts, Aftermath Islands Metaverse Limited has achieved almost $3 Million USD in gross retail and commercial sales since the start of the program in November 2021, which have been recorded as Deferred Revenue in accordance with IFRS, with approximately 8,000 purchases made through the Shopify store, and the Company is continuing to execute its business plan to the best of its abilities under the current circumstances, including meeting a number of key technology milestones. Lost Kingdom of T’Sara users have generated, since late October 2022, almost 8 million Resource Pack NFTs for use inside of Aftermath Islands.
Aftermath Islands is currently developing an Artificial Intelligence powered creator program, allowing users to perform Karaoke songs through their Avatars. Users can sing into a phone or web cam and the platform will take their facial gestures and head movement and using AI, map that to their Avatar, which can sing any one of over 10,000 licensed Karaoke songs. This program is expected to debut later this year and has already received interest from a number of major platforms.
The Company continues to expand its program opportunities with the Liquid Avatar Mobile App and is pursuing additional opportunities outside of Aftermath Islands to integrate its technology for Proof of Humanity into other platforms.
“This has been a difficult time for many micro-cap public companies, including our own. Management and the team members continue to work diligently to create long term value. We are excited by this opportunity to consolidate our programs and believe that this will potentially provide the best solution for shareholders given the current economic environment,” said David Lucatch, CEO Liquid Avatar Technologies Inc.
Aftermath Islands’ early-stage experience is currently available, through a mobile, tablet or computer browser, with no downloads, at play.aftermathislands.com and it is continuing to add new and exciting experiences to its open world.
