TORONTO , Nov. 20, 2019 /CNW/ - Globalive Technology (LIVE.V) (the "Company"), a technology and software commercialization firm developing and investing in innovative solutions to disrupt traditional industries, including retail consumer finance, today announced its financial and operational results for the third quarter of 2019 (the "Financial Period").

For a summary of the financial results, see the Selected Q3 Financial Highlights set out below as well as more detailed information contained in the Company's interim financial statements and related management discussion and analysis quarterly highlights which are available on the Company's SEDAR page at www.sedar.com.

SELECTED Q3 OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS

Key operational developments for the Company in the third quarter of 2019 included:

  • Interest in FLX Holding Corp. / Flexiti Financial Inc.: On January 9, 2019 and February 20, 2019 , the Company announced it is exercising its call right to acquire 2629331 Ontario Inc. ("262 Ontario "), the controlling shareholder of FLX Holding Corp. ("FLX"), under a put, call and right of first refusal agreement dated June 21, 2018 , subject to certain conditions precedent, including the Company's satisfaction that adequate financing can be obtained to fund FLX and Flexiti Financial Inc. ("Flexiti"). The Company has continued to work with FLX, Flexiti and their stakeholders throughout the Financial Period to see if these conditions can be satisfied. Further to an announcement made on September 13, 2019 , the Company is also considering, in addition or in the alternative to the exercise of the call right, negotiating a business combination transaction that would result in the Company owning all or a substantial portion of the common equity of Flexiti on terms acceptable to the parties and their respective stakeholders. The negotiation and implementation of such a business combination is now the Company's primary focus in relation to Flexiti, however, those negotiations are still preliminary and there can be no assurance that such a transaction, or even an agreement relating to such a transaction, will be reached.

  • Blockchain/Cryptocurrency Business Ventures: The Company has substantially ceased its active operations in the blockchain and cryptocurrency space. During the Financial Period the Company sold its interest in Globalive BIG Dev Inc. ("GBD"), its business venture with Business Instincts Group Inc. ("BIG"), to BIG and took back a debenture from BIG in the principal amount of $1,250,000 .

  • Investments: The Company has made and continues to make strategic investments in existing and potential future collaborators and other strategic partners. During the Financial Period the Company allocated a small amount of capital into Civic Resource Group International Inc. and fulfilled its second $250,000 USD ( $331,125 CAD) commitment to invest in the University of Toronto Creative Destruction Lab's Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence Fund. After the Financial Period, the Company also invested a small amount of capital into Acorn Biolabs, Inc. The details of these investments and their valuations are described in the Financial Statements.
