SURGE LAUNCHES FREE UNLIMITED WIRELESS PLAN NATIONWIDE

SURG to Offer the First Free Wireless Service that is Not Subsidized by the Government


LAS VEGAS, NV (January 9, 2019)
Surge Holdings, Inc.  (OTCQB: SURG), the Las Vegas-based Technology, Telecom and Blockchain FinTech software company announces the first free wireless service not subsidized by the government.

The SurgePhone Wireless  free unlimited plan is available online and will be the flagship product rolled out to a network of approx. 40,000 retail stores throughout the United States. Customers can purchase a SurgePhone Google Certified Android Smartphone for under $100 or simply get a Free SIM starter kit and use with their own unlocked GSM device. Surge anticipates ad revenue of $10 generated from each user service plan, where the more the phone is used the greater the revenue generated. The SurgePhone also becomes the hub for customers to receive the full suite of Surge FinTech products and services.

Brian Cox, CEO of SURG, said “We have now removed any barrier to bringing customers into the SURG ecosystem of products, including the upcoming SurgePays reloadable Visa card and rewards program. This free, yet profitable product will also allow us to bring on more stores offering our products which should accelerate the company towards my goal of 100,000 points of distribution across the country. This product will also accelerate our customer acquisition where we can preload and market related Surge products and services for significant additional revenue streams. This unprecedented service truly hits our mission of delivering our customers life enhancing products and services.”

There are no credit checks, contracts or otherwise intrusive obstacles to become a SurgePhone customer. SurgePhone will disrupt the traditional wireless industry by monetizing home screen ad network impressions through strategic technology partnerships. SurgePhone is now a free wireless solution for the unbanked, people with credit challenges, teens, seniors or anyone in between simply looking to cut costs.

Cox further added, “Our Free plan was constructed utilizing data from years of wireless usage reports to determine what the average person is actually using a month. The main thing we want to accomplish is to be able to offer free unlimited texting with a sufficient amount of talk and data included so that we have the customer in our network. This growing network provides a launch and distribution platform for both vendor partners and all of our other Surge products available today and in the future.”

4 Billion people are connected through mobile phones daily while 85% of the time spent on smartphones is in apps. Approximately $192 Billions is spent on mobile advertising each year.

SURGE HOLDINGS AND PLAYER’S NETWORK ANNOUNCE JOINT VENTURE TO MARKET AND SELL CBD PRODUCTS TO CONVENIENCE STORES NATIONWIDE

SURG and PNTV to stake a claim to the projected $22 Billion CBD industry to distribute Green Leaf PURE CBD products into over 40,000 retail locations.

LAS VEGAS, NV (December 20, 2018) Surge Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: SURG), Las Vegas-based Telecom and Blockchain FinTech software company, and Player’s Network, Inc. (OTCQB: PNTV), a rapidly growing company in legal marijuana industry announce today a joint venture to distribute Green Leaf PURE CBD products to a network of approx. 40,000 retail stores throughout the United States.

The relationship allows PNTV to focus on continual development of high-quality CBD products and brands while SURG utilizes their SurgePays Blockchain B2B distribution platform and outbound call center to introduce, sell and manage the ongoing replenishment of these products.

CBD continues to be one of the fastest growing markets in the United States with sales expecting to reach $22 billion by 2022. Additionally, the passing of the Farm Bill 2018 which included the Hemp Act of 2018 removed the barriers associated with growing hemp due to federal prohibition to include restricted access to banking, water rights, and crop insurance. The signing of this bill will define hemp as a federally legal agricultural product; subsequently removing all of the restricting legislation and opening the door for PNTV and SURG to capitalize early on this multi-billion dollar industry.

Through the JV, the initial order kit for new stores will range from approximately $399 to $1,500 or more. Anticipated monthly orders will be of similar value based on location and the size of the retailer.

Currently, the market for CBD is on track to generate more than $600 Million in 2018. Analysts project that CBD sales will reach over $1 Billion by 2020 and is expected to exceed $22 Billion by 2022.

SURG has recently signed contracts to grow their distribution network of convenience stores and bodegas to 40,000+ retail locations throughout the United States. The joint venture with PNTV creates an immediate distribution channel for Green Leaf PURE to capture a share of nationwide brick and mortar CBD sales while both companies expect to realize significant revenue increases as the CBD market grows.

“The bulk of the first to market CBD product sales will not be through big box retailers, but through the 100ks of corner stores, convenience stores and bodegas nationwide.” said Brian Cox, Surge Holdings CEO. “With the passing of the Farm Bill, we expect CBD products to be in high demand and first to market usually wins. We will leverage all of our relationships, call center and software platform to blitz the market nationwide to claim our stake and shelf space.”

Brett H. Pojunis, Director of PNTV, said “now that the Farm Bill of 2018 which includes the Hemp Act of 2018 has passed, this opens up the entire United States as potential customers for our CBD products. The relationship with SURG couldn’t have come at a better time! Brian (SURG CEO) and I have been working on developing the best products for the targeted demographics of their retail stores and we feel this will be a huge success.”

SURGEPAYS 2.0 RELEASE

Secure Blockchain Infrastructure is the Foundation for Accelerated Expansion of Retail Network Locations and FinTech Growth.

Las Vegas, November 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Surge Blockchain, the wholly owned subsidiary of Surge Holdings, Inc. (Surge) (OTCQB: SURG) announces the December 15th launch of the significantly updated SurgePays FinTech software platform and portal.

Surge Holdings CEO, Brian Cox, stated, “This infrastructure development and milestone will allow us to keep up with our side of the agreements that we have made for store acquisitions and network growth over the next 12 months. I believe it’s even more significant when considering our team was able to accomplish these long-term, shareholder value-driven goals while posting Q3 revenues of $4,051,027.” 

SurgePays 2.0 Highlights:

  • Surge completed development of a fully electronic and secure onboarding software that replaces time-consuming document management. The SurgeSetup software facilitates filling out and processing multiple licenses, contractual, banking and tax forms, which enables same day store sign-up launches. This is a critical step for onboarding multiple stores simultaneously per day to support growth bursts and eliminates any processing or data management bottlenecks during store enrollments.

 

  • Stores that have an Internet-connected computer at the register will be able to utilize the new image-driven navigation portal. In addition to all of the traditional wireless and FinTech products, convenience store owners will now have the ability to utilize seamless and simple one-click ordering from several wholesale categories including smartphones, electronics, snacks, CBD products, auto parts, t-shirts and more. Stores can also choose monthly auto-ship while taking advantage of flash specials.

 

  • Stores that do not have a computer at the register will be able to process SurgePays 2.0 transactions on the updated and more robust Verifone VX 520. This new terminal is over 35% less expensive per unit while delivering faster transactions, market-leading security, PCI compliance and the ability for SurgePays to additionally offer credit card processing to merchants on the same unit.

Cox further added, “The progress our operations and development team has made continues to demonstrate Surge’s strategy to expand business sectors while leveraging existing infrastructure and human capital. The successes are also reflective of the significant investment into a foundation to position the company for multiple streams of accelerated revenue growth in 2019.”

The SurgePays 2.0 live beta testing began November 25th which fits in the time frame for the December 15 release.
