NEWARK, Del., July 29, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Theater Xtreme Entertainment Group, Inc. (OTCBB:TXEG), a nationwide seller and installer of affordable, real movie theaters for the home, today announced that it anticipates expansion into several super-regional mall locations, has signed a definitive investment banking agreement to secure growth capital and, as announced earlier this month, restructured terms with its largest debt holder.
"We are pleased our largest debt holder, Kinzer Technology, worked with us on revising the terms of its loan, which now allows us the runway to raise the investment capital Theater Xtreme needs to execute its ambitious growth plans. Using our unique retail approach, and building on the success of our newer locations, we are confident we will become a recognized leader in the fast growing front-projection home theater space," said Theater Xtreme Chairman, President, and CEO Robert Oberosler.
The company also announced that it executed an investment banking agreement with Allen, Goddard, McGowan, Pak & Partners, LLC. "I am very excited to be working personally with Co-Chairmen Howard Allen and Alan Goddard. They are very astute businessmen and have worked diligently to understand our business objectives and exceptional growth potential," added Oberosler.
Director of Capital Markets for American Capital Partners and Theater Xtreme board member Vince Pipia said in reaction to the revised Kinzer Technology terms that he is "pleased with the new agreement, and appreciates the investment bank's openness to structure a deal that is fair to both parties."
During negotiations, Kinzer clearly wanted to see Theater Xtreme succeed and is willing to do its part to make that happen. "As a board member," said Pipia, "I am thrilled by the hard work and turnaround that has taken place within Theater Xtreme. The Company is poised for growth and implementation of its new business initiatives."
In the past four months, the Theater Xtreme team has made significant strides in cutting costs, addressing the Company's balance sheet, reducing inventory, right-sizing the organization, and laying the groundwork to execute our new growth plans. "We still have plenty of good, hard work ahead of us, especially in terms of store openings," said Oberosler.
Theater Xtreme has executed Letters of Intent (LOIs) with Taubman Centers, Inc. (NYSE:TCO) for the lease of four new store locations. The non-binding agreements are for the following locations: five-year lease at Stamford Town Center, Stamford Connecticut; five-year lease at Fair Oaks Mall, Fairfax, Virginia; and five-year leases in Texas and North Carolina. Additionally, Theater Xtreme has renegotiated lease terms for two previously announced LOIs, which include Dolphin Mall, Miami, Florida and the Mall at Wellington Green, West Palm Beach, Florida. The non-binding agreements call for five-year leases on each property, revised from ten years.
The Company also has executed a non-binding LOI with Vornado Realty Trust (NYSE:VNO) for the five-year lease of a store location at Bergen Town Center, Paramus, New Jersey.
The Company intends to open the above mentioned locations in 2008 and 2009, with the first mall-based store expected to open this fall in Moorestown, New Jersey.
"Our plans to add an additional eight stores in the months ahead is energizing to the whole organization. Moreover, the new store design will be one of the most exciting and fun shopping experiences in the consumer electronics retail space," said Theater Xtreme Vice President of Sales and Marketing Justin Schakelman. "We have combined the best of what we do today in our Wilmington, Delaware store, and retained Janet Dieser of Corporate Design Associates to shape the new store model with a focus on improving the customer experience and product merchandising. We believe these changes will be more appealing to the entire family and gamers." The Company expects to announce future stores with anticipated opening dates as lease negotiations progress.
Theater Xtreme is also in the final stages of completing a growth initiative to expand its RowOne(r) entertainment furnishings and interiors product lines to the audio/video dealer community nationwide. Said Oberosler of the progress, "In the near future, we plan to announce key partnership agreements that will help make RowOne a visible brand name in home theater furnishings and equipment. This will mark a major step forward on the national stage for us."
