RealBiz Media Group Inc (OTCMKTS:RBIZ) is a penny stock that just went into orbit, with a massive one-day move on Thursday of 540%. The catalyst was the company’s announcement that it has been awarded a contract to supply beef to the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, which includes the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.
According to the release, the contract is valued at over $78 million and is the first for RealBiz’s newly launched international food distribution business. “During the next several months, the company plans to communicate ongoing details about this new business segment and its high growth potential in a multi-billion-dollar industry segment.”
RealBiz Media Group Inc (OTCMKTS:RBIZ) had been trumpeting itself as a company that provides digital media and marketing services for the real estate industry in the United States. It had segments offering video search, storage, and marketing capabilities on various platforms for Web, mobile, and TV.
However, the company recently shifted gears, announcing that Mr. Anshu Bhatnagar will join the company, effective January 2, 2017, as its Chief Executive Officer. The current Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Alex Aliksanyan will remain with the company, serving as President of Real Estate Operations.
Mr. Bhatnagar brings a wealth of experience in food distribution, manufacturing and operations and will be heading a major new investment by the company into the global Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) and Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) sectors. Previously Mr. Bhatnagar was the Chief Executive Officer for US-based global food distributor American Agro Group and its Dubai affiliate, growing that company’s revenues to over $100,000,000 in four years. Mr. Bhatnagar is also the Managing Member of the private equity firm Blue Capital Group which focuses on commercial real estate and investments in cross-sector companies. The existing real estate operations, including video production for some of the most marquee brands in the industry, will continue reporting to Mr. Aliksanyan.
The initiative into the FMCG sector is seen as a major investment for the company as global demand for food is anticipated to grow significantly for the foreseeable future. The company will focus on international distribution of fruits, nuts, honey and meats. Mr. Bhatnagar’s wealth of experience in distributing and manufacturing in the Middle East and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries uniquely positions RealBiz for success.
