DALLAS, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LIG Assets, Inc. (OTCPK: LIGA) and Texas Real Estate Hedge Fund, LP have successfully executed a 16 year lease with a 4 year option for a total 20 year term on the first of ten planned locations with the new premium Terry's Supermarket concept.  The initial location covers a 61,000 square foot building on 4.22 acres located in Carrollton, Texas and was purchased by LIG Assets for $3 million.  This and future leases are projected to produce double digit cash on cash returns under a triple NNN Leasehold structure. 

A location for the second premium Terry's Supermarket has been targeted.  This particular tenant is viewed as high quality and conservative in nature given its successful chain of grocery stores since 1995 with operations in Texas and Oklahoma.

In the coming weeks, LIG Assets, Texas Real Estate Hedge Fund and MMR Realty Advisors (The Strategic Alliance) plan to provide substantive updates and news on additional deal flow.  The Strategic Alliance aims to replicate similar deal structures as the initial transaction in an effort to generate and yield above market returns.
