TUSTIN, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/13/14 -- Premier Holding Corporation (OTCQB: PRHL) today announced that it has received a signed Letter of Intent from PDC Capital Group LLC, (PDC) to fund the company up to $25 million. PDC is highly confident that it can raise between $5 million and $25 million in EB5 funds for PRHL utilizing its international resources.
This initial document is based on PDC's preliminary determination that PRHL qualifies for PDC's program for EB5 funding, subject to routine due diligence customary for this type of project.
PRHL has presented PDC with a plan to add a third subsidiary -- a "licensed power supplier" or LPS. The supplier is expected to dramatically increase revenue and have a positive effect on profitability as PRHL, through its subsidiaries, will have the ability to capture more businesses and a larger percentage of the revenue streams from the sale of deregulated power. PRHL's subsidiary, The Power Company (TPC) will provide marketing support to the supplier, however the supplier will also be able to recruit, market and wholesale to other like-kind TPC entities known as brokers or resellers. The combination of distribution i.e. the "LPS," marketing i.e. The Power Company along with the ability to market green and energy-efficient products and services through another PRHL subsidiary, Energy Efficiency Experts, provides PRHL the ability to maximize earnings on a per-client basis and allows each division access to prospects and clients at a minimal cost of garnering a client.
PRHL will be expected to create jobs as part of the funding requirements, and with 1,000 jobs PRHL may be able to obtain the full $25 million. PRHL currently has created over 100 jobs out of one location in Chicago and the funding will allow PRHL to replicate one or more offices in 12 of the other deregulated states (12 - 24 new offices over the next 36 months) in which it chooses to conduct business.
CEO and President of Premier, Randall Letcavage, stated: "We are extremely pleased with the prospect of PDC as a funding partner and are looking forward to creating and keeping jobs in the United States. We believe the PRHL/PCG relationship will allow us to build out a dynamic and sustainable business model that will support our goals of growing our 'Everything Energy' model."
The letter of intent was signed March 8th and allows for 60 days due diligence and additional mutually agreeable terms. PDC plans to market the project in China and other oversees countries in its network. PDC has to date completed 10 EB5 projects. Emilio Francisco CEO of PDC stated, "We are very confident that both PRHL and PDC will make a successful team and that this is just the beginning."
EB5 funding projects are a specialty of PDC. The investor visa category was created by Congress in the Immigration Act of 1990 to encourage the flow of foreign capital into the U.S. economy and to create jobs for U.S. workers. There are 10,000 available visas in the investor visa category annually, 3,000 of which are reserved for foreign investors who want to participate in an investor visa pilot program designed for targeted employment areas. PDC sees the PRHL model as fitting perfectly in this program.
