Lunch Time Pitch

DENVER, Colo., Apr 23, 2024 (247marketnews.com)- Brera Holding (NASDAQ:BREA), NewGenIvf Group (NASDAQ:NIVF), AGBA Group Holding Limited (NASDAQ:AGBA), Smart for Life, Inc. (Nasdaq:SMFL), and Virgin Galactic Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:SPCE)

Brera Holding (NASDAQ:BREA) $1.49 +0.21 (+16.41%) responded to European media reports and Italian fan site posts stating that the Company is actively negotiating to purchase an Italian professional football (soccer) club.

24/7 Market News interviewed famed Investment Banker, Daniel McClory, who took a large position in Brera.

24/7- It appears that you beat everybody to the punch, concerning multi club professional sports team ownership via the public markets. What inspired you to move forward with Brera Holdings?

DM- While I’m passionate about sports, this is a business and the industry has a lot of unrealized upside, so I’m motivated by the economic fundamentals and I think that Brera Holdings is in the right place at the right time.  Listing on Nasdaq as the first Italian football team to do so very early in Brera’s development of the MCO model created the publicly-traded platform to execute on all our other acquisitions, including our current focus on acquiring a Serie B club.

24/7- over the past week or two, I’ve seen Brera’s name mentioned in increasing Italian Media and club fan site reports. How is that progressing and why pick a Serie B club?

While I’m unable to provide any specifics, at this time, I’m more than happy to comment on Italian football’s rich history and culture. Italian professional football tends to be among the best and it’s experiencing a tremendous upswing, as its Serie A already secured one of the two additional UEFA Champions League spots. Serie B is a very strong and desirable league, but developing a Serie B club that’s capable of earning a Serie A promotion is our goal.

24/7- Speaking of landing the first punch, professional sport team ownership is in the midst of a financial sector Renaissance and leading investment banks, like Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan, established professional sports specific investment banking divisions. How will those moves affect the sports ownership and investment market and how do you plan to stay at the tip of the spear?

DM- The sports industry’s economic impact is already substantial, but it’s still growing, so it makes sense for these iconic investment banks to make their move.

As long as we remain true to our mission, democratizing the pro sport ownership opportunity for masses of Nasdaq investors, we should remain ahead of the curve, on many of our initiatives, and, frankly speaking, we plan to slide into the slipstream of some of the significant tailwinds that they’re going to produce, but look for Brera to find and exploit valuation arbitrages every day.

24/7- Deloitte, a leading consultancy firm, predicts that high-value sports properties will reach unprecedented valuations this year, with institutional investors keenly eyeing the industry for potential opportunities. What will it take for the masses to recognize these opportunities that have already captured the attention of many internationally recognized billionaires?

DM- I agree with their take and I’m sure that the projected explosion in interest is factored in their industry predications. Plus, professional sports are one of the most effective avenues for product marketing and sponsorships, which adds fuel to that fire, but I believe that the masses have already taken note and we’re providing an option for this expanding market.

24/7- What changes would you implement over the next year or two for Brera Holdings?

DM- We’re going to continue to push forward with our plan to acquire sports clubs that we believe have significant economic upside and strengthen our MCO strategy, but I think that one of our most important missions for the next two years is to capitalize on the unique convergence of events that should drive soccer’s popularity to the next level, especially in the US.

The Wrexham television series is attracting casual fans and providing a little background into the international professional soccer business, but that’s going to pale in comparison with what’s just around the corner. The US will be the epicenter of the football world, by hosting the 2024 Copa America, the 2025 FIFA Club World Cup, and the 2026 FIFA World Cup, which the experts project will explode the sport’s popularity.

Brera Advisory Board member Alan Rothenberg was in charge of the US hosting of the 1994 World Cup, which is widely considered to be the most successful ever, but this one could outdo that.

Considering that one of our key goals is to turn the growing fan base into our supporters and new stakeholders, I couldn’t think of a better set of upcoming market drivers.

NewGenIvf Group (NASDAQ:NIVF) $2.57 +1.29 (+100.78%) continues to move after reporting that it’s executing a non-binding term sheet regarding a proposed reverse merger with European Wellness Investment Holdings Limited, in which NewGen will issue 53,600,000 of its ordinary shares to EWIHL shareholders in exchange for 100% equity interest of EWIHL, at a deemed price per share of US$5, representing an aggregate amount of US$268,000,000. Simultaneously, it is proposed that NewGen raise US$30 million from public or private shareholders, in a form mutually acceptable to both NewGen and EWIHL.

“I am thrilled to announce the signing of a non-binding term sheet with EWIHL, a leading healthcare company. The proposed reverse merger will bolster our position in several key ways. Operationally, it will unlock significant synergies, expand our global reach, and help us to further improve fertility outcomes for our customers. Financially, with the acquisition of a profitable business and a US$30 million fundraising, we will be well-equipped to fund our future growth. Moreover, the issuance of additional ordinary shares will increase our market capitalization, ensuring higher trading liquidity. Finally, I believe that the deemed price of US$5 per share confirms that our current share price is undervalued compared to the long-term fair valuation of the company,” stated Siu Wing Fung Alfred, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of NewGen.
