PLANTATION, FL / ACCESSWIRE / February 19, 2020 / LMP Automotive Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:LMPX) (the "Company" or "LMP"), an e-commerce and facilities-based platform for consumers who desire to buy, sell, rent, subscribe for, or finance pre-owned and new automobiles, today announced that through its wholly-owned subsidiaries, LMP Finance, LLC and LMP Technologies, LLC, it closed a deal to purchase a luxury fleet of vehicles from Revolve Technology Company, Inc. ("Revolve") for $2,871,000 and entered into a perpetual non-exclusive license for certain software code and other intellectual property with Revolve.
The fleet consists of vehicles from Porsche, Mercedes Benz, Lexus, Land Rover, Tesla and other luxury automotive manufacturers. The Bancorp and Sutton Leasing have agreed to finance the acquisition.
As part of the acquisition, LMP will pay $487,454 in common stock valued at the closing price of the Company's common stock on February 19, 2020, and $525,000 in cash for a perpetual non-exclusive license to certain software code and other intellectual property for Revolve's technology-enabled vehicle subscription service application which is currently available in the Apple App and Google Play Stores. Any enhancements to the software will be the exclusive property of LMP.
Sam Tawfik, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated,"This license enables us to accelerate the launch of our app to the second quarter of this year in the Apple App and Google Play Stores. We intend to brand, integrate and build upon the acquired software, adding additional features and functionality with an eye towards enabling our current customers, future consumers, and those of any acquired dealership groups to complete the onboarding process online through their mobile device or desktop. The luxury fleet purchase, combined with our recent order of $41.4 million of vehicles, widens our product offering and inventory by adding Porsche, Mercedes Benz, Lexus, Land Rover, Tesla and other desirable brands to the South Florida market to fill our current and future demand. We intend to offer Revolve customers the option to return their vehicle to LMP, remain in their vehicle at a lesser cost in most cases, or swap it within our luxury subscription fleet." Mr. Tawfik added, "We continue to see impressive consumer demand in our cost competitive subscription leasing business. Consumers view it as a flexible alternative to leasing or financing."
