Equities First (London) Limited — UK Transaction Update and 15th Anniversary Statistics for Parent Company

London, UK — Equities First Holdings, LLC (EFH), a global provider of shareholder financing, confirms it has returned all shares used as collateral as part of a loan agreement with Joel Leonoff, chief executive of Paysafe plc as announced by the company on 24 March, 2017 (Details Here). Mr. Leonoff entered into the loan in March 2014 and has repaid his loan in full.

Since establishing its London office in 2013, EFH has carried out more than [£45MN] of shareholder loans to Professional Investors. The Paysafe plc transaction is the second public repatriation of shares — following a full repayment by Andrew Newland, CEO of Angle plc on 27 October, 2016 (Details Here). There are currently a portfolio of publicly announced or privately transacted UK loan agreements on the EFH books and discussions continue with other potential clients in the UK and throughout Europe.

“We are very pleased with the progress made by our London office, which is spearheading our commitment of US$100m of further investment for lending to the European Professional market in general,” said EFH founder and CEO, Al Christy, Jr.

Meanwhile, EFH — which is based in the USA — has announced in the month of its 15th anniversary that it has successfully completed more than 700 transactions since its inception and delivered in excess of US$1 billion to clients in the past four years alone.

EFH (http://www.equitiesfirst.com) continues global expansion — with 9 offices in the USA, Europe, the Far East and Australia — thanks to an investment model that takes advantage of natural, organic cycles in the market.

“Securities-based lending is a long-standing financial tool used by companies, governments, and individuals every day,” said Christy. “But very few financial institutions, including large commercial banks, can offer non-recourse features or loans with a low cost of funds. We have a successful track record because we live and breathe equities-based lending every day.”

Equities First (London) Limited is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority of the United Kingdom, register number 605564.

Lazy Tree Ranch to host Hops and Grapes Brewpub with beer, food and wine.

Liberty Hill, TX, USA — Hill Country has a new brewery and events center opening in the near future. Lazy Tree Ranch (http://www.lazytreeranch.com), located off CR 264/206 near the Best of the West Gun Range will be opening this summer for weekends and events. The 10.6 acre property has more than 100,000 square feet of beautiful lawn with hundred year old live oak trees. Hops and Grapes Brewpub will be offering its own brews as well as many craft beers and moderately priced wines for consumption on or off site.

The plan is to install a bark park, play area and disc golf course so families and even their pet can come out to the country for a day and enjoy great BBQ, beer and wine. There is an existing pavilion and plenty of seating under the canopy of trees.

“We’re looking into the future and seeing a great place for family events and the occasional country music act performing,” noted Carl Braun Managing Partner of Lazy Tree Ranch. “Hops and Grapes when finished will be a real asset to the area with excellent food and spirits.” He added.

Austin is the Live Music Capital of the US and Lazy Tree Plans on leveraging that reputation with live events.

The ranch is easily accessible from HWY 29 and only 1.4 miles off the main road along the Burnet County line.

The company just started a Regulation Crowdfunding campaign on http://www.wefunder.com/lazytreeranch and is seeking $500K in funding for the new buildings and equipment. Anyone can participate.

Fulham Demonstrates New Universal Voltage LED Shoebox Retrofit Kit at Lightfair International 2017

New Shoebox Retrofit Kit Applies Clever Lighting Design to Deliver Programmable, Energy Efficient Replacement for Commercial, and Exterior Luminaires.

Hawthorne, CA, USA — At Lightfair International 2017 being held in Philadelphia next week, Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, will unveil its new Universal Voltage LED Shoebox Retrofit Kit. Designed to replace conventional shoebox lighting and 400W HID luminaires, the new LED Shoebox Retrofit Kit uses clever LED programmability for greater energy-efficiency and performance. The Kit comes in a single configuration for outdoor applications using street lamps, parking lights, and area lighting luminaires.

The LED Shoebox Retrofit Kit supports 120V to 227V with low total harmonic distortion (THD) and features an integrated thermal management system for optimal performance, reliability, and longevity. The Kit is designed to maintain the aesthetics of the original shoebox luminaire and can be used in dry or damp locations. It also is UL Classified for Field Installation and can be fitted in from five to 10 minutes. The outdoor/high-output version of the Shoebox Retrofit Kit also complies with DLC 4.0, the new DesignLight Consortium standard.

Part of Fulham’s growing line of clever LED lighting products, the LED Shoebox Retrofit Kit has a programmable driver that can be configured for 165W to 53W for greater versatility and low power consumption, with seven programmable wattage settings for multiple lumen outputs (preset by request). Smooth dimming can be programmed from 100 percent to 10 percent or 0 percent. The unit also is compatible with daylight harvesting controls, occupancy sensors, and building automation systems.

“We designed the new LED Shoebox Retrofit Kit for versatility as well as performance. Our clever lighting initiative gives OEMs and installers programmable flexibility to configure and control our LED lighting to suit multiple applications,” said Russ Sharer, Vice President of Global Marketing for Fulham. “Our new LED Shoebox Retrofit Kits can be used with different voltages and programmed for different power consumption, wattage settings, and lumen outputs. With clever programmability, customers can store fewer parts and be assured of compatibility and easy installation.”

The LED Shoebox Retrofit Kit can be installed either into a screw-in luminaire with an E39 or E26 base, or using a direct mount bracket. A protective lens enclosure is included and rated as a high voltage barrier that meets the 5VA flame rating. The surface-mount LEDs on the DC module also feature NTC thermal feedback, and the thermal heatsink fin design for best lumen and life performance.

Fulham will be displaying the LED Shoebox Retrofit Kit and other products at Lightfair in Booth 3101. Fulham’s line of LED lighting units is available from Fulham locations worldwide. For more information, visit http://www.fulham.com.
