Play LA Inc. (OTCBB: PLLAF) ("the Company"), announces that it has retained the services of Harney Westwood & Riegels (Harney’s) to represent its interests against NFC Data Inc., and NFC Data Inc.’s related parties. NFC Data Inc. is currently in default on loans owed to the Company and other lenders. The loans are related to the Share Purchase Agreement that NFC Data Inc. signed with Play LA Inc. on December 12th, 2012, and subsequently withdrew from, a proposed transaction that would have seen the Company exchange shares and acquire the business and assets of NFC Data Inc. in a deal that valued NFC Data Inc. at $7,500,000. The Company further notes that this was a unilateral decision made by NFC Data Inc., and that Play LA Inc. fully intended to complete the transaction.
Geoff Cairns, CEO of NFC Data Inc., advised the Company of the withdrawal after entering into agreements with private investors to sell a portion of NFC Data Inc. equity that he stated would value NFC Data Inc. at approximately $25,000,000.
