Triller Completes Pre-Public Listing Financing Plans For Q4, 2022 NASDAQ listing:ILLR, Also completes Acquisition of Bare Knuckle Fight Championship

Announcement comes following the most successful BKFC event to date at Wembley Arena in London

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Triller, the AI-powered open garden technology platform for creators, today announced it had completed a substantial pre-public financing in the form of debt and equity. This announcement comes on the heels of its filing its S-1 with the SEC, the document a company files prior to a public listing. The company has reserved the ticker symbol “ILLR” with the Nasdaq stock exchange.

Participants in the round include Total Formation Co, an affiliate of Fubon Financial, one of the largest financial institutions in Asia with ownership of Taiwan Mobile, Taipei Fubon Bank, Fubon Life, and many others, and was for the third straight year on Fortune Global 500’s list of “The Top 500 most valuable Global Brands. Other investors included, Falcon Capital, Clearvue Partners and others.

“This was an important step for Triller to be properly funded entering the Public Markets,” said Mahi de Silva, CEO and Chairman of Triller. “We are very pleased to have such strong market leaders as investors and look forward to bringing Triller to the world via a Nasdaq listing,” he continued. “If the capital markets continue to be stable, we are targeting an early Q4 public listing.”

Triller also announced that it concluded the acquisition of of Bare Knuckle Fight Championship (BKFC), a transaction it announced it had contracted earlier this year.

Bare Knuckle has quickly become a world-wide phenomenon with deals consummated or in negotiations across more than 20 countries, and an unprecedented growth in the United States. BKFC is the fastest growing combat sport with an anticipated 200,000 subscribers between the BKFC app and Triller’s wholly owned Fite TV.

“Bare Knuckle Fight Championship has enjoyed never before seen growth, as it offers something that all fight audiences can connect with,” said Mahi de Silva CEO and Chairman of Triller. “This acquisition is a game-changer for Triller, as it accrues numerous synergies across our entire platform and allows us to supercharge BKFC even further,” continued Silva. “By leveraging our creator platform, combined with our social media infrastructure, ad-tech and mar-tech capabilities, influencer network, and FITE TV’s streaming services currently enjoyed by five million paying households, makes this acquisition a no brainer for both parties.”

The announcement comes in the wake of BKFC’s most successful, largest event-to-date, held on August 22 at Wembley Arena in London. This past weekend BKFC had its most successful event to date at Wembley Stadium in London, and trended number 2 in the world on Twitter. As a result, the digital streaming, pay-per-view, and subscription service FITE.TV by Triller, now has over 200,000 subscribers.

“I started BKFC from scratch and it has become a way of life, and will forever change boxing and MMA,” said Dave Feldman, Founder and CEO of BKFC. “We spent over a year working with Triller prior to the acquisition, getting to know their team, their plans and the way in which BKFC would be integrated into their ecosystem. What became clear is that Triller was the only home for us. They are not seeking to change BKFC but will help supercharge our growth, maximizing our marketing and monetization. I can say without hesitation there is no company out there that has both the ambition and the tools of Triller to change the ways people consume combat sports,” Feldman concluded.

As the world of social media and the way in which brands market are changing dramatically, Triller has led the way to Web3 and decentralization with a “open-garden” ecosystem, helping creators gain ownership of their audiences, control their monetization and financial destiny. Triller saw over 750 million content interactions last quarter and looks at each interaction as an opportunity for monetization.

While the financial terms were not disclosed, the transaction involved a combination of cash and stock for majority ownership of BKFC.

Triller recently filed a confidential S1 with the SEC and expects to become publicly traded on the Nasdaq under the ticker “ILLR” during the 4th quarter of this year.

“Triller is now the only company in existence which owns and controls the entire pipe from beginning to end,” said de Silva. “Starting with the content creators, which includes fighters, the events, the actual production, and broadcast to the users themselves through Triller’s Fite Tv 5 million plus paying households and we believe quickly will become the most valuable brand in combat sports.

“We want to thank our partners, investors and supporters whom to date have helped supercharge Triller from a startup in 2019 to a household name today, having raised over $300 Million Dollars, supporting over 750 million monthly interactions and over 300 million users across all of its platforms. We have only just begun.”

About BKFC
Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) is the first promotion allowed to hold a legal, sanctioned, and regulated bare knuckle event in the United States since 1889. Based in Philadelphia and headed by President and former professional boxer David Feldman, BKFC is dedicated to preserving the historical legacy of bare knuckle fighting while utilizing a specifically created rule set that emphasizes fighter safety. BKFC will hold all its bouts in a revolutionary circular four-rope ring, designed to encourage fast-paced and exciting bouts. The patented BKFC “Squared Circle” contains scratch lines, based on the Broughton Rules, which governed bare knuckle fighting in the 19th century, and which requires fighters to “Toe the Line”: start every round face to face, and just inches apart.

In BKFC, only those fighters who are established professionals in boxing, MMA, kickboxing, or Muay Thai will be allowed to compete. The referees and judges will also be required to have extensive professional combat sports experience. All fights will be held under the auspices and control of an Athletic Commission. Unlike other fighting organizations and combat sports internationally which claim to be “bare knuckle”, but require wraps, tape, and gauze; BKFC is true to its word as fighters are not allowed to wrap their hands to within one inch of the knuckle. This makes BKFC unquestionably the truest form of bare knuckle fighting. BKFC is dedicated to not just creating the safest, most exciting, and highest-level bare knuckle fighting organization in the world; it’s also leading the way for a new, fully recognized professional combat sport. BKFC is truly the sport of the future.

GLOBELEQ S’ASSOCIE AU GOUVERNEMENT ÉGYPTIEN POUR DÉVELOPPER UN PROJET D’HYDROGÈNE VERT À GRANDE ÉCHELLE 

LONDRES et LE CAIRE, 29 août 2022/PRNewswire/ — Globeleq, la principale compagnie d’électricité indépendante en Afrique, a signé un protocole d’accord avec l’Autorité des énergies nouvelles et renouvelables (NREA), l’Autorité générale de la zone économique du canal de Suez (SCZONE), le Fonds souverain d’Égypte pour l’investissement et le développement (TSFE) et la Société égyptienne de transport d’électricité (EETC), afin de développer conjointement une installation d’hydrogène vert à grande échelle dans la zone économique du canal de Suez.

Globeleq - Powering Africa's Growth

Globeleq, en tant que développeur et investisseur principal, développera, financera, construira, possédera et exploitera le projet d’hydrogène vert. Il sera développé en 3 phases, totalisant 3,6 GW d’électrolyseurs et environ 9 GW de production d’énergie solaire photovoltaïque et éolienne. La première phase impliquera un projet pilote utilisant un électrolyseur de 100 MW, et se concentrera dans un premier temps sur les engrais verts à base d’ammoniac, tout en envisageant d’autres utilisations finales de l’hydrogène vert à moyen et long terme, y compris les carburants verts. Globeleq entend conclure des accords d’enlèvement à long terme avec des entreprises égyptiennes et internationales de premier plan et solvables, tout en soutenant leurs plans de décarbonisation.

En capitalisant sur les meilleures ressources éoliennes et solaires photovoltaïques d’Égypte, sur des infrastructures bien développées et sur le cadre réglementaire favorable aux investissements du gouvernement égyptien, Globeleq vise à produire de l’hydrogène de manière compétitive pour les exportations et le marché local. La situation géographique unique de l’Égypte, à la croisée de l’Afrique, de l’Europe et de l’Asie, avec environ 13 % du commerce mondial qui transite par le canal de Suez, place le pays en position de devenir un centre mondial pour l’énergie verte.

Globeleq investit en Égypte depuis 2003 et détient actuellement la centrale solaire photovoltaïque ARC pour Renewable Energy S.A.E. de 66 MWp située dans le parc solaire de Benban près d’Assouan. Globeleq vise à soutenir la stratégie ambitieuse du pays en matière d’énergies renouvelables en développant de nouveaux projets d’énergie solaire photovoltaïque, éolienne, de stockage d’énergie par batterie, de dessalement de l’eau de mer et d’hydrogène vert en Égypte.

L’ambassadeur britannique en Égypte, Gareth Bayley, OBE , a déclaré : « Globeleq est un investisseur britannique de premier plan, détenu à 70 % par British International Investment et à 30 % par Norfund, qui sont respectivement les institutions de financement du développement du Royaume-Uni et de la Norvège. La société investit en Égypte depuis près de 20 ans et nous nous réjouissons de la signature de ce protocole d’accord, qui souligne une fois de plus la relation solide entre le Royaume-Uni et l’Égypte. Le projet soutient également le leadership et les ambitions des deux pays en matière d’énergie renouvelable et de lutte contre le changement climatique. Nous avons hâte de continuer à travailler avec Globeleq et tous les intervenants concernés. »

L’ambassadrice de Norvège en Égypte, Hilde Klemetsdal , a ajouté : « Avec les plans ambitieux de Globeleq, la Norvège continue de renforcer ses investissements dans l’hydrogène vert en Égypte. Il s’agit d’un exemple du type de solutions que l’industrie doit adopter pour transformer la transition écologique en mesures concrètes. Nous apprécions notre solide coopération avec le gouvernement égyptien en faveur de ce virage vert et de la lutte contre le changement climatique. »

Mike Scholey, PDG de Globeleq , a indiqué : « Une action collective audacieuse et rapide est nécessaire pour mettre le monde sur une voie durable. L’Égypte est un pays clé pour Globeleq, et nous sommes heureux de soutenir l’ambitieux programme vert du gouvernement égyptien et de contribuer à la lutte contre le changement climatique. »

Waleid Gamal Eldien, président de SCZONE , a mentionné : « Le nouvel accord avec Globeleq s’inscrit dans la continuité de notre engagement à mettre en œuvre la vision de l’Égypte dans la transformation vers une économie verte. Le gouvernement égyptien a des plans ambitieux de transition énergétique, en plus d’accueillir la COP27, et des mesures actives sont prises pour faire de la SCZONE un centre majeur pour l’hydrogène vert. Nous sommes heureux de nous associer à Globeleq, l’une des principales sociétés d’énergie renouvelable au Royaume-Uni et dans le monde, et ce partenariat reflète l’intérêt des entités mondiales spécialisées dans l’investissement dans de tels projets, qui choisissent la SCZONE comme destination pour investir dans des projets de carburant verts, au service des marchés africain et international. »

Ayman Soliman, PDG du Fonds souverain d’Égypte , a déclaré : « Les partenariats dont nous sommes témoins sont une traduction de la stratégie intégrée de l’État visant à diversifier les sources d’énergie et à localiser la production d’hydrogène vert, dont tous les éléments couvrent les étapes en amont et en aval, dans le but de transformer l’Égypte en un centre régional pour l’énergie verte. Notre objectif est de maximiser l’utilisation des ressources énergétiques renouvelables de l’Égypte en partenariat avec des développeurs mondiaux spécialisés, afin de réaliser les objectifs et la stratégie du Fonds souverain d’Égypte.

Wa, Aug. 30, GNA – Anthony Yengdon, 20, is in police grips for allegedly murdering three persons and injuring one at Tampaala, a suburb of Jirapa in the Jirapa Municipality of the Upper West Region.

The deceased were his mother, Bozobo Yengdon, 60, his sister, Rebecca Yengdon, 22, and his landlord’s wife, Cynthia Dabuo, 45.

Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Reynolds Manteaw, the Upper West Regional Police Crime Officer, who confirmed the incident to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Wa, added that an eight-month-old baby, who sustained injuries is currently on admission at the St. Joseph’s Hospital at Jirapa.

He said the three women were confirmed dead at the same Hospital on arrival and the bodies had been deposited at the morgue awaiting post-mortem, while the suspect was in police custody to assist in investigations.

ACP Manteaw said one Kantuban Dabuo reported to the police at Jirapa at about 2200 hours on Sunday, August 28, that Anthony Yengdon hit the victims with a stick around 1900 hours the same day; “according to the lay man’s view, killing them instantly.”
