History                                                                                                                

2014

1. Victory ECIGs pursues multiple Acquisitions with convertible debt, Uplist to NASDAQ to raise funds to pay off acquisition                                          

2. Uplist fails because brands weren’t strong/ecig overpaid for the acquisitions
3. Default on debt simultaneous to out of date products not selling/being expensed as obsolete
4. Toxic debt converts/shorting drives price per share into the floor

2015

1. Old leadership out, new leadership in promising to fix balance sheet
2. 15 for 1 RS, maintain 300 million AS
3. New financing pays off and restructures old debt – no longer toxic
4. Maintained major distribution partnership with Mansour
5. Q1 and Q2 2015 focused on restructuring balance sheet, cutting costs, merging the acquired companies together, and establishing a strategy moving forward
6. Q2 2015 conference call confirms goals for first half of year were accomplished and we have a new strategy moving forward

Opportunity Summary: ECIG is a major turnaround prospect since the addition of new key personnel and the successful implementation of major financial and operational restructing during the first half of 2015. Low market cap, high debt, and large revenue potential creates high risk, high reward opportunity. Recent developments show progress in key strategic areas and give cause for optimism.
