DALLAS, Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- LIG Assets, Inc. (OTCPK: LIGA), a multi-faceted Company focused on real estate and technology, is pleased to announce that it has completed its first commercial real estate transaction involving the new Strategic Alliance announced yesterday with MMR Realty Advisors and the Texas Real Estate Hedge Fund, LP. The location of the property is at 2515 East Rosemeade Pkwy in Carrollton, Texas and includes 61,224 RSF on 4.22 acres. The property, which was formerly a Kroger's supermarket, is being leased to Terry's Market's LLC.
Terry Market's, established in 1995, has a new aggressive growth strategy and plans to emulate the success seen in competitors such as Trader Joe's, Central Markets and Whole Foods Markets. The Strategic Alliance has plans to acquire and lease an additional 9 supermarket properties over the next three years in Texas, Oklahoma, and Colorado for this grocery store chain.
As stated in yesterday's press release, the Strategic Alliance plans to complete numerous transactions that involve Multifamily, Retail, Destination Hotel and Office properties. This Strategic Alliance has been developed with the opportunity to take positions in assets that are "Off Market" and can be acquired on a negotiated basis. Given the repositioning of the Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities and the upcoming Commercial real estate maturities, LIG Assets and Texas Real Estate Hedge Fund, LP foresees significant opportunities in the calendar year 2013 and beyond.
LIG Assets, Inc. CEO Jeff Love stated, "This new Strategic Alliance is a match made in heaven. This first supermarket transaction is the first in what we believe will be a series of similar supermarket deals, and the first of numerous planned transactions for the Strategic Alliance."
