As a result of the reverse capitalization, Global Equity Partners Plc. agreed to exchange its 2,271 common shares of Quartal Financial Solutions A.G. for a total of 227,100 common shares of Quartal Financial Solutions Inc. Under the terms and conditions of our contractual agreement, these common shares carry Registration Rights when the company lists its shares on a Public Stock Exchange.

The Company is currently undergoing its PCAOB audits for the years ended December 31, 2014 and December 31, 2015. In the interim, with GEP´s assistance, the Company is actively seeking to raise up to US$10 million, for growth and expansion, via a pre-IPO private placement memorandum.

Peter J. Smith, CEO of Global Equity International Inc., said, "Once again, we continue to prove the strength and validity of the business model that we have worked so hard to fine-tune over the last few years. This milestone is just one of many that we will see during the coming weeks, months and years.
