Exhibit 99.1

 

Reliance Global Group Embraces ‘OneFirm’ Approach for Future Growth

 

Consolidates All Reliance Owned Agencies Under the RELI Exchange Brand

 

Anticipated Benefits Include Enhanced Efficiencies, Cross Talent Utilization, and Cross-Selling

 

Reliance is Positioned for Seamless Integration of Accretive Acquisitions and Rapid Scalability

 

 

 

SMIC Now Under the RELI Exchange Umbrella

 

LAKEWOOD, N.J., November 16, 2023 — Reliance Global Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: RELI; RELIW) (“Reliance”, “we” or the “Company”), today formally announces its OneFirm vision and branding consolidation under the RELI Exchange umbrella.

 

Ezra Beyman, CEO of Reliance, commented, “As we continue to grow, the Company is furthering its ‘OneFirm’ approach which brings together Reliance Global Group’s individual agencies under the single umbrella of RELI Exchange. We’re confident this move will bring substantial benefits and efficiencies to our agents, their clients, our investors, and the Company. OneFirm is expected to significantly enhance the Company’s market presence across the U.S., as Reliance Global Group’s agencies will operate under the unified brand of RELI Exchange across all business lines and all markets. We anticipate that this will fortify our relationships with carriers, enabling us to realize more profitable commission and bonus contracts, due to expected increases in business volume. Additionally, this platform will propel our RELI Exchange agency partners by providing them the ability to effectively secure policies across a broad range of insurance products and markets. Moreover, OneFirm will continue to bring the Company together as one cohesive unit, creating cross-selling and cross talent sharing opportunities for our internal agents and agency partners. Early financial benefits of our OneFirm platform are already evident by the Company’s 19% year-over-year increase in revenues and the decreased operational losses by more than 21% during the first nine months of 2023, as previously reported. Furthermore, we believe the OneFirm unified approach will position us to scale rapidly as we continue to seek out and integrate accretive acquisitions which we believe will further broaden Reliance Global Group’s industry and market reach.”

 

Moshe Fishman, Director of Insurtech and Operations, stated, “Implementing the ‘OneFirm’ strategy has begun to yield positive results for the Company, as demonstrated in the recent 2023 third quarter business update. With the U.S. insurance market’s vast potential, currently valued at $2.7 trillion and anticipated to grow by 26% to $3.4 trillion by 2027, we believe the timing couldn’t be more perfect for us to adopt a comprehensive company-wide operating and branding strategy. OneFirm positions the Company to capture a larger share of this expanding market and will provide RELI Exchange with substantial advantages, including the ability to leverage the exceptional talent currently employed across our organization, the capability for enhanced data access and sharing, segmentation of specialized support services, and a reduction in overall operating expenses by streamlining operations and redeploying existing talent to revenue generating roles as and where appropriate. Our ‘OneFirm’ platform also positions the Company well to absorb additional talent per expected industry shifts, where an increasing number of captive agents make the move from their current roles, to seek out more profitable and lucrative opportunities to build their businesses.”

 

Reliance’s Chief Financial Officer, Joel Markovits commented, “We are super charged and excited about OneFirm and going to market collectively under RELI Exchange branding. We expect these enhancements to increase our top and bottom-line results and we move forward with high expectations and a tenacity for success to continue in our efforts to build stockholder value. As always, we thank our investors for their support and look forward to accomplishing even more, in the months and years to come.”
