CUV Ventures Corp. Officially Launches RevoluFIN Lending Platform

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CUV Ventures Corp. (TSX-V:CUV) (Berlin:A2JE7L) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has formally launched the RevoluFIN factoring and lending platform. The company is very encouraged with the initial interest in the platform, having done very minimal marketing.

RevoluFIN financing platform

The lending platform www.RevoluFIN.com had been active in public beta form since March 8th and has, thus far, garnered interest from 5 separate international entities seeking factoring loans. Several potential lenders have also contacted the company through the website and, are communicating with management. The RevoluFIN proprietary financing platform facilitates short to medium terms loans and factoring for commercial transactions, to both private and corporate businesses, chiefly in the travel and leisure sectors. RevoluFIN obtained its initial seed capital guarantee of up to 40 million Euros (approx 63 million CAD) on the 12th of March from Vesilen Investments. The RevoluFIN finance platform provides payment facilities for commercial Letter of Credit (LC) holders, and secured short term financing requirements. Further, the platform focuses upon stimulating the nascent self employed economies around the world, including travel related services, sold through the company's proprietary and partner websites, giving these entrepreneurs access to much needed capital, while securitizing loans through pre-booking retentions associated with future paid travel service reservations. RevoluFIN has already received multiple requests for loans and, is in the process of studying these opportunities. The company expects to obtain, on average, a 5% gross profit on loans.

CUV Ventures Corp partner Tyrval, a major worldwide supplier to the hospitality industry, has also begun submitting numerous factoring requests, for orders from numerous hotel chains. All loans, linked to Tyrval, hold the secondary advantage of an extra 6% royalty on all sales, over and above the loan interest, as per the exclusive commercial agreement announced on the 22nd March 2017.

Highlights of the RevoluFIN Platform

  • Up to 40 million Euros (63 million Canadian dollars) available for financing
  • Annualized interest to seed capital investor partners 8-9.5%
  • Approximate annualized commercial loans at 13-14.5%
  • Numerous loan requests received and being studied by the risk committee

A diverse division of the company, named Cuba Ventures, is involved in Caribbean Basin strategic investments. Similar to the United States NASDAQ listed Herzfeld Fund, the focus is to control noteworthy assets related to the Caribbean Basin (including Cuba). The division is comprised of numerous assets. A wholly owned subsidiary Travelucion Media, is a duly licensed and bonded online travel company, Amadeus GDS affiliated, digital and print media powerhouse that specializes in travel marketing, electronic reservations and online booking solutions. Travelucion owns a vast portfolio of web assets consisting of 432 Cuba-centric websites in up to 5 languages which generate over 35 million page-views per year and direct traffic to Travelucion's online booking and e-commerce sites and proprietary online booking systems, also customized for white label deployment on third party booking websites for; Cayman Islands, Dominican republic, Aruba, Bahamas, BVI, Belize, Antigua, Jamaica and Cuba, offering bookings for hotels, private residences, car rentals, tours, flights and a variety of other types of specialized travel services.

In 2017, the company acquired equity in the Florida, USA based, licensed and bonded travel agency; International Business & Travel Opportunities, LLC (IBTO), a Caribbean Basin focused travel facilitator operating trips in the region (including licensed Cuba trips for Americans).

In 2018, the company acquired equity in the Florida, USA based, Third Circle Publishing LLC, publisher of the esteemed and U.S circulated print and digital magazine Cuba Trade Magazine.

The Cuba Ventures division consulting team harnesses over 80 years of combined advisor experience in submitting and, obtaining approval, for joint ventures, joint production agreements and import/export permits for foreign enterprises. More recently the company has taken a royalty approach for future agreements between third parties anxious to begin comercial operations with Cuba and, the company's Cuba Consulting Unit.

Through this methodology, the Company is gradually building a potentially valuable "future-ready", non Caribbean (Cuba) domiciled asset base while, in the interim, securing revenue, growth and unique opportunities present in the Caribbean Basin, with an emphasis on the $4 billion dollar and rapidly growing Cuban travel and tourism industry, $3 billion factoring and FinTech sector, $18.6 billion Caribbean remittance industry and international corporate consulting for Cuba's estimated $86 Billion annual economy, which remains an interesting opportunity and, one that this division strives to dominate at every opportunity by acquiring assets that are neither physically domiciled nor associated with entities located in Republic of Cuba but, that have unparalleled future takeover prospects, should the political climate improve.
