  • Signed Loan with Everest Group LLC
  • Shutdown of the Direct Sales business
  • InstantProfile® Passed the 5,000 Customer Milestone

During the Fiscal Second Quarter, the Board of Directors announced the appointment of Kevin Hall as Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Formerly President and Chief Operating Officer (COO), Mr. Hall’s strong leadership and knowledge “will lead LiveDeal on the road forward to a brighter future,” said Tom Clarke, Director and Chairman of the Compensation Committee.

Further, the company signed a loan with Everest Group LLC, a private equity fund. Kevin Hall commented, “This financing will provide liquidity and working capital as we continue our efforts to improve the company’s operating results in 2011.”

Also, the Company has shut down all business activities from our Direct Sales business under Local Marketing Experts, Inc. subsidiary as of April 30, 2011. This scaled down operational costs associated with this line of business.
