CLEARWATER, Fla., Nov. 9, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ALAS International Holdings, Inc. (Pink Sheets:VDSC) provides Shareholder Update in a statement released today by Peter Villiotis.
The complete focus and direction of ALAS International Holdings will be on the Maritime Industry, which is our core strength, as the management team has over 100 years of experience devoted to the shipping and cruise business.
All previously announced activities by ALAS will be cancelled, sold off, or spun out for the benefit of the shareholders (except for Saenz Corp and PV Enterprises).
The current financial condition of ALAS will reflect Saenz’s 18 million dollars in tangible assets, P.V. Enterprises with revenues of over 3 million dollars with an approximate EBITDA of 2 million dollars. At this time ALAS has no external debt; however, the little internal debt on the books is to shareholders and insiders. These debts may be converted to stock with little dilution to the current shareholder base. ALAS also has a substantial tax loss carry forward.
ALAS will continue the previously announced yacht charter business with plans to move into the cruise ships and cargo ferry business where revenues have shown a steady increase over the last 5 years and projected to continue to rise for the next 3 years. PV Enterprises will also continue to grow its contract ships management business.
