Registria and GWSCA to Unveil Trends in Product Registration that Help Brands Drive Loyalty and Post-Purchase Revenue

DENVER, CO—(Marketwired – May 31, 2017) – Registria and the Global Warranty and Service Contract Association (GWSCA) will unveil the results of Registria's 2017 Consumer Trends in Product Registration report during a webinar on Thursday, June 8, at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.

The webinar, hosted by Patrick Scheen, CEO of Accentf(x) and GWSCA board member, will showcase the insights uncovered from Registria's analysis of five years worth of product registration data from more than 100 of the top consumer brands.

The consumer shift to mobile has had a significant impact on activity and preference when it comes to product registration. Highlights from the report include:

  • The top reasons people register their products
  • Which demographics are most likely to register their products and how
  • The methods consumers prefer (chat, email, SMS, etc.) for post–purchase communication with brands

“There is a new generation of consumers who are influential shoppers, and their expectations on how and when to interact with brands is different from the generations before,” said Matt Parsons, EVP of Registria. “By understanding the changing habits and preferences of today's mobile consumer, brands have a significant opportunity to engage their customers immediately post–purchase, building loyalty and driving added revenue.”

In addition to the findings from the registration study, the webinar will provide insights into how companies can increase warranty sales through mobile product registration.

“For many Brands, product registration is an essential first step in identifying and connecting with their customers,” said Scheen. “The GWSCA encourages its members to attend this informative session to learn more about the impact of digital, social and mobile technology on the future growth of product registration.”

Petrolia Insiders convert all short term working capital loans to equity

HOUSTON, TX—(Marketwired – May 31, 2017) – Petrolia Energy Corporation's (OTCQB: BBLS) insiders, including members of the Board of Directors and Management, have converted $382,700 of short–term working capital loans that were intended to be repaid out of proceeds from the Series A Preferred stock offering to 38,200 shares of preferred stock. As part of the consideration, the Company issued 400,000 warrants to purchase common stock at a strike price of $0.20 per share.

Considering the earlier conversion of Jovian Petroleum Corporation's (“Jovian”) debt totaling $2,000,000, insiders including Jovian have converted a total of $2,382,700 to equity. These conversions materially reduce total debt and decrease the debt to equity ratio of the Company to less than 33%. The actual maturing indebtedness of the Company is substantially less considering that the remaining Jovian production payment indebtedness doesn't accrue interest and is only payable out of 20% of the net proceeds the company receives from production at the SUDS field.

Zel Khan, CEO of the Company, remarked, “These conversions clearly demonstrate the commitment and confidence insiders have in the Company.”

Details of these transactions will be available in the subsequent 8–K released with the Securities and Exchange Commission and are viewable on our website: www.petroliaenergy.com.
