August 19, 2016 at 4:23 PM EDT

MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 19, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On August 12, 2016 (in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q) and August 16, 2016 (in an earnings press release), GWG Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:GWGH) reported non-GAAP net asset value of $111,858,000, or $18.72 per common share, at June 30, 2016, based on an aggregate redemption value of preferred stock of $24,418,000. Following the release of this information, GWG Holdings identified an error in calculation that had inadvertently omitted the redemption value of Redeemable Preferred Stock sold during the second quarter of 2016. As a result, the corrected aggregate preferred stock redemption value at June 30, 2016 was $34,799,000, resulting in a corrected non-GAAP net asset value of $101,477,000, or $16.98 per common share, at June 30, 2016.

Other than as explained above, all other information originally reported remains unchanged. The correction described herein has no impact on the company’s assets or stockholders’ equity, revenue, or income (loss) for the second quarter or the first six months of 2016, nor does it impact cash flow or liquidity.
