CLEVELAND, OH / ACCESSWIRE / November 19, 2021 / Innovest Global, Inc. (OTC PINK:IVST), a diversified industrials company, announced today that GPC Holdings has obtained a voting majority in the Company with plans to catalyze growth and achieve the goals stated by Company founder and Chairman of the Board since 2016, Dan Martin. These goals are to build an exchange traded platform company with efficient operations of acquired entities which capitalizes on integration efficiencies, and sales growth. The transaction was non-dilutive to shareholders and did not involve the issuance of any new stock or debt.

Shaheed Bailey, GPC Holdings’ Managing Partner and Innovest’s new Chairman of the Board and interim CEO, stated, “GPC has been following Innovest for three years, and we were incredibly impressed with Dan and the milestones reached despite limited outside capitalization and the interruptions presented by Covid-19. Noting that he had stabilized the business since the initial pandemic disruptions, by cutting significant overhead and having a smart go-forward plan, we made contact and proposed entering in this capacity to compliment what has already been achieved; with the focused capitalization, acquisition, uplist, and operating philosophies that are our expertise. We are confident that the business is at the perfect stage for us to enter and that the business model will result in exceptional success.” In its first three years, Innovest acquired eight companies and grew from zero to $50 million in sales before the pandemic. In 2020, Innovest completed its first cycled investment with the spin out of StemVax Therapeutics to NovAccess Global Inc. (OTC:XSNX) which resulted in an approximately $4 million gain since its acquisition of StemVax, from the 7.5 million shares of NovAccess acquired by Innovest in the sale transaction. NovAccess, also controlled by Martin and also transitioning to GPC, saw its value increase approximately 300 percent in the year since that transaction. “Dan understands how to create value for shareholders, and he’s done the heavy lifting to make these businesses valuable concerns, which we now hope to work together to scale significantly.”

The board of directors will be rebuilt, inviting some members back, and adding others who can benefit the next stage of growth, in the coming months.

Dan Martin, the Company’s founder, will continue to be an invaluable advocate for the Company and a significant shareholder. He stated, “the proven track record of GPC and its existing and forthcoming partners, in the areas most needed for the Company to accelerate growth, are impressive and under Shaheed’s leadership made the decision a simple one - relevantly experienced people with immediate acquisition and capital opportunities working on behalf of Innovest is a win for shareholders and natural transition point for a growing entrepreneurial venture to add seasoned management and fresh resources.”

Immediate plans are to continue the activities resulting in the growth of assets and elimination of liabilities, continue the sales growth that has been significant in 2021, acquire companies, and resume the uplist and registration processes to become an SEC reporting comany. News is expected to be forthcoming on the above items in the coming months.
