Pardo continued, “We are on solid ground financially. We currently have more than $12 million in cash on hand, $45 million in assets, and virtually no debt. Our financial ratios are solid, including a better than 5:1 current ratio at the last quarter. In the last quarter, we increased our overall net cash by $1.4 million and realized net income of over $1.0 million. Given our asset base and cash position, our financial loss last fiscal year does not threaten our ability to continue as a going concern. The objective facts refute the outlandish and irresponsible financial claims made in the suit.”Life Partners is the world’s oldest and one of the most active companies in the United States engaged in the secondary market for life insurance, commonly called “life settlements.” Since its incorporation in 1991, Life Partners has completed over 143,000 transactions for its worldwide client base of over 29,000 high net worth individuals and institutions in connection with the purchase of over 6,500 policies totaling approximately $3 billion in face value.
