LAKE FOREST, CA / ACCESSWIRE / August 17, 2016 / XFit Brands, Inc. (XFTB), a global supplier of fitness and MMA equipment sold at retail and fitness outlets worldwide whose brands include Throwdown® and Transformations™, today announced that it has completed an Equity Purchase Agreement with GHS Investments that enables XFit Brands access to up to $5 million in capital over the next 36 month to enable the Company to continue its global expansion.
GHS Investments, LLC, a leading private investment and management group providing financing solutions for high potential small cap enterprises, entered into the agreement with XFit Brands following extensive due diligence, interviews of management, and detailed reviews of the Company’s financials and business plan. The Investment Agreement provides XFit Brands with the option to sell to GHS up to $5,000,000 worth of the Company’s common stock over a thirty-six month period following the effective date of the registration.
Under the terms of the Investment Agreement, XFit Brands has the right to deliver from time to time a put notice to GHS stating the dollar amount of put shares (up to $500,000 under any individual notice) that it intends to sell to GHS at the “at market” price per share according to the terms of the agreement.
Sarfraz Hajee, member of GHS Investments, LLC stated “Xfit Brands is unique and attractive to us on several levels. XFit brands met our criterion for quality of management, quality of controls, quality of earnings, and quality of business and business potential. We are very confident in the management team’s ability to continue to execute and we are excited to play a key role in the Company’s continued growth.”
Xfit Brands has been taking advantage of the global growth in health and wellness. The underlying industry has been growing at more than 5%, as the trends to healthier lifestyles and away from obesity take hold worldwide. Fitness outlets are rapidly expanding around the world, and XFit Brands is capitalizing on this by being a one-stop-shop supplier to them. Historically gyms focused on stationary equipment like treadmills and weight machines. The trend is towards active cross and group training – and this is the type of functional fitness equipment and programming that XFit Brands provides. As a result, Xfit Brands, Throwdown® in impact sports and accessories and Transformations® in programming and training is at the heart of this movement, and is why the company is growing more than 40% annually.
David Vautrin, Chief Executive Officer of Xfit Brands, and a former senior leader of major multinational companies commented, “We are excited to have such a quality financing partner like GHS Investments to be part of the XFit Brands story. Their investment will enable us to fund our ascension to the leadership position in the industry that we are already on track to achieve. Coupled with our debt partner, PIMCO, we have a great cadre of support, facilitating the Company’s strategy and enabling management to execute its business plans unencumbered.”
