Thomasville, GA - (NewMediaWire) - October 04, 2022 - GGTOOR, Inc., (OTCMKTS:GTOR) (“GGTOOR, Inc.,”, “GTOR”, or the “Company”), an emerging leader in the eSports markets, announces management has communicated directly with Nerdlands funding partner and has worked closely with Nerdland management team over the past several weeks. The Company had expectations the Nerdland deal would be successfully funded by September 30, 2022. The Company can confirm that it has given Nerdland ten additional days and after talking directly with Nerdland’s funding partner, has complete confidence Nerdland will be a premiere and featured business in GGTOORCITY. Nerdland purchase is a HUGE transaction and although the funding process has taken longer than we would all like, it has been a marvelous test case on solving the complex financing issues funding sources will require for future deals. The Company has learned from this experience and will be in a position to streamline funding of future sales as a result of the lessons learned.
Shareholders who follow these weekly management reports know that Accell Audit and Compliance disappointed the Company by delaying the audit and raising prices at the last second. As a result, GGToor management has spent the past couple of weeks interviewing audit firms. Management had hoped BDO would accept us as a client, but they passed due to our early stage of development. The Company has found three firms willing to provide audit services, but each has suggested the Company request the SEC review the TCGWorld virtual land purchase and offer guidance. Their feedback was unified suggesting they would not sign off booking the purchase as an asset until the SEC provided guidance. The Company made the decision to remove the $102,300,000 asset from its balance sheet temporarily until it receives guidance from the SEC. Management has sent the following correspondence to the SEC and they have responded with a request for additional information, but they will review the transaction and provide their guidance.

Subject: GGTOOR Virtual Land Purchase
Attached please find two attachments that make up a virtual land purchase GGToor Inc., (OTC:Pink GTOR) made with TCG.World. The purchase was made using Preferred Stock. Initially, we received guidance from A-Frame Accounting, Tampa, Florida, Accell Audit and Compliance, Tampa, Florida and our CFO, Mr. Thomas J. Bellante CPA PA, that this purchase could be added to our balance sheet as an asset since the preferred stock has no redemptive rights, no conversion rights and the par value is per share is the price we have agreed to pay. When GGToor sells a parcel, we pay TCG.World the agreed upon purchase price and the preferred share is canceled and returned to treasury.
We added this purchase to our May 31, 2022, balance sheet which increased assets by $102,300,000, but since we have received three opinions from PCAOB CPA firms who we have been interviewing to become our independent auditors, that they will not sign off on this purchase being an asset until GGToor receives guidance from the SEC. Their biggest concern is to our collective knowledge and after initial investigation, none of us can find a similar transaction and we collectively believe GGToor is the first to ever structure a transaction in this way. We just filed our August 31, 2022, (see Attached) whereby we removed this purchase from our balance sheet until we receive further guidance. GGToor believes it acted appropriately when it filed its annual financial disclosure for the period ended May 31, 2022, but since has learned this transaction warrants further guidance from a regulatory agency.
GGToor would respectfully request you provide us with your guidance as to how this purchase should be treated. Your timely response would be appreciated. GGToor's only concern is we treat this purchase correctly from an accounting standpoint and that whatever treatment we give this purchase is a fair representation so shareholders or potential shareholders can have accurate and dependable information.
GGToor co-sponsored its biggest event to date the “Victory Road World Cup of Pokemon VGC.” 25,000 This event was comprised of ten weeks of online competition. It had competitors from fifty six countries and a total of 664 players involved. Web activity totaled +120,000 page views and +25,000 web users.

Twitch activity totaled +100 hours, +300 average viewership, +150,000 live views and +120,000 deferred views. YouTube activity totaled +200 uploaded videos and +200,000 views.

Management is sharing this information due to several individuals on various chat rooms claiming Mr. Whitman is a fraud, crook and is trading stock at $0.01 and selling at higher prices based on market conditions. It is inevitable people will vent their frustrations with stock price, volume, overall market conditions on open forums but to make claims Mr. Whitman is trading stock nefariously at the expense of shareholders or is a fraud are simply false.

Mr. Whitman had this to say, “I gave birth to GGToor, and I am in this for the long haul. I have never indicated GGToor was a get rich quick investment nor have I ever commented on stock price. The market will take the stock where it believes the Company’s value is. I cannot control share price, volume, or public perception except when I am falsely accused of nefarious trading or I am outright called a fraud, I will provide evidence to the contrary. I love GGToor. I believe in our business model, and I will do everything in my power to protect this Company and its shareholders of which I am the majority. I will further state the Company does not have a trading account and other than my personal E*TRADE account mentioned above, no other trading account exists in my name, my wife’s name or any other name under which I have control or shared control.”
