Los Angeles, CA – February 21, 2013 – Gary Rasmussen, Chief Executive Officer of Global Entertainment Holdings (OTC: GBHL) was featured in the recent issue of the highly regarded, online magazine “Opportunist”, the “voice for the penny stock, small cap, and micro stock investor.”
In the article, Rasmussen discussed Global Entertainment Holding’s achievements to date, specifically citing GBHL’s successful track record of mitigating film production risk to equity investors through the use of various techniques including taking advantage of tax incentive programs, distribution participation, deferrals, and certain IRS tax incentive programs for film investment, such as Section 181.
The article highlights the extensive contacts and experience of GBHL’s management team with track records at major studios and distributors, as well as in the realm of independent film production. Recently, GBHL hired a new Chief Financial Officer, Alan Bailey, formally Senior Vice President and Treasurer of Paramount Pictures for 35 years! Rasmussen recalls Bernard Baruch’s well known expression, “Bet on the jockey, not the horse.”
Additionally, Rasmussen discusses GBHL’s recent developments, including a 4th Quarter profit, and reveals GBHL’s recent diversification endeavors with the launch of an innovative new social networking web portal, “You’ve Got the Part” that will afford any individual an opportunity to be cast in a real Hollywood movie, and GBHL’s recent alliance with the Lifton School of Media Arts and Sciences, a new “hands-on” film trade school opening in Los Angeles.
