PROVO, Utah, Nov. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sundance Strategies Inc. (OTC BB: SUND), an innovative company engaged in acquiring life settlements and related insurance contracts, policies and obligations, today announced that it has closed a $15 million private offering of its common stock, and will be using the proceeds to apply its proprietary "Sundance NIB Structure" to finance and re-insure portions of its existing portfolio of Net Insurance Benefits or NIBs, in life insurance policies, thus creating a unique, secure and liquid asset.
Sundance currently holds approximately $129 million in Net Insurance Benefits from its first acquisition in March, 2013, and is holding approximately $400 million of additional policy maturity benefits in portfolios from its second acquisition in June, 2013. These newly acquired assets are in the process of being converted through Sundance's proprietary process into Qualified NIBs and should bring the total to more than $500 million in NIBs owned. This amount does not take into account all premiums payable under the policies, along with other costs and expenses, including and any repayments under the applicable mortality protection insurance on policies.
Randy Pearson, President of Sundance Strategies, commented, "We continue to execute on our strategy to assemble large portfolios of the highest-quality policies in the industry at favorable pricing. By structuring these policies using our unique and innovative strategy, we ensure Sundance will receive predictable cash flows regardless of when the policies mature. As a result, we believe we will receive the Net Insurance Benefit, or NIB, significantly reducing the risk associated with the unknown maturity date of a policy. It is our plan to continue to consistently add additional amounts to our portfolio, as we execute on our strategy."
The $15 million private offering was completed internally, primarily through friends and family members, which was comprised of the sale of 3,018,500 shares at $5.00 per share, for aggregate gross proceeds of $15,092,500.
