eXp Realty Supercharges Agent Earning Potential

Introducing the “Accelerate” agent incentive program, breaking down growth barriers through accelerated revenue share opportunities

BELLINGHAM, Wash., Sept. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —  eXp Realty®, “the most agent-centric real estate brokerage on the planet™” and the core subsidiary of eXp World Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXPI), today announced the launch of Accelerate – an incentive program focused solely on helping eXp agents build for their future by maximizing their revenue share earning potential during their first year with the company.

“In the lifespan of an agent, a critical component of long-term success is the ability to build for their retirement, so we launched Accelerate to help catalyze their potential earnings and create momentum in the first year and build for their future,” said Glenn Sanford, Founder and CEO of eXp Realty. “We continue to be relentlessly focused on delivering a model that puts agents first. I couldn’t be more proud of what we have created, especially for those looking to build long-term wealth, with our revenue share and equity programs for agents, as well as a favorable cap and split model.”

Accelerate, which is available in all 24 countries where eXp Realty operates, applies to agents who joined on or after March 1, 2023. The program automatically opens revenue share tiers 2 and 3 for 12 months beginning Sept. 7, 2023, creating the opportunity to have 10 front line qualifying agents (FLQA) immediately. This can open up the eXponential components of eXp’s revenue share program in that first year. After the 12-month period, standard revenue share criteria will apply.

“Accelerate was designed to reduce barriers and incentivize agents to grow their organizations,” said Michael Valdes, Chief Growth Officer, eXp Realty. “It enables them to focus on selling and growing their businesses while earning the maximum potential revenue share for tiers two and three for the first year. Our aligned compensation model, where agents are rewarded for both production and contributions to eXp’s growth, brings more value than ever before.”

This launch comes on the heels of the company’s June announcement that, for the first time, was refining revenue share criteria for its agents, reducing the current FLQA tier 7 threshold from 40 to 30 FLQA. As part of its efforts to continually enhance its model, the company also launched Boost, a program designed to financially incentivize qualifying independent teams and brokerages to join eXp Realty.

Revenue share is just one part of eXp Realty’s aligned compensation model, which also includes competitive commissions and stock equity programs designed to enable its agents to build for their future.

Philips reaches resolution of US economic loss litigation

September 7, 2023

Amsterdam, the Netherlands – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) announced today that the company and certain of its US subsidiaries, including Philips Respironics, have reached an agreement to resolve all economic loss claims in the US Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) related to Philips Respironics’ voluntary recall of certain sleep and respiratory care devices. This settlement, which is expected to be submitted to the US District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania later today, does not include or constitute any admission of liability, wrongdoing, or fault by any of the Philips parties.

The agreement, which is subject to approval by the court, will provide predefined cash awards to all eligible participants in the US depending on the type of device, extended warranties on all replacement devices, and an additional cash award if they return the recalled device to Philips Respironics. The settlement will further compensate certain individuals who acquired replacement devices post-recall.

The final cost of the settlement may vary based on, among other things, how many patients participate in the settlement and what the Court awards for the professional fees relating to the resolutions. Philips Respironics has recorded a provision for an amount of EUR 575 million in the first quarter of 2023 to cover for the estimated costs of the final settlement.

Subject to final Court approval, payments to class members under the settlement are not expected to begin until the first quarter of 2024 at the earliest.

The agreement does not settle any personal injury or medical monitoring claims in the MDL, which the Philips parties have moved to dismiss.

• Patients, hospitals, and sleep labs in the US eligible for benefits under the agreement do not need to take any action at this time in order to participate in the settlement.

• The settlement must be approved by the US District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, and additional information will be provided in the future.

• All related inquiries by patients, hospitals and sleep labs in the US should be directed to the third-party Settlement Administrator, Angeion Group. More information will be available at www.RespironicsCPAP-ELSettlement.com.

Clients will be making bunny ears, meeting Rabbit and Fox and completing a series of challenges with multi-lingual nanny-trained cabin crew, including Chinese-speaking crew members. Once the mission is completed, a UV moon disco will be ready to celebrate and dance.

VistaJet sparkling tea mocktails

VistaJet’s mooncake tasting experience will be completed with sparkling tea mocktails – Bellini Vista and Night Flight – made with unique recipes created only for VistaJet by Fortnum & Mason for this Mid-Autumn festival.

“With a multi-lingual global team of over 4,000 employees from 60 countries, creating memories and special moments is what we do best, and our Members can relax and enjoy a perfect journey with their families and friends,” added Matteo Atti.

Gastronomic sensations

As salt and sugar adversely impact the human body in a pressurized air cabin and alter how food feels in the mouth, each meal in flight is prepared especially for fine dining at high altitude, taking into account the effects of elevation, lower humidity and increased noise and movement on one’s tastebuds and senses.

Departing from Singapore, while enjoying the Michelin-starred dining on board, VistaJet Members can taste the handcrafted mooncakes custom made for VistaJet by Shangri-La Singapore, filled with premium ingredients and less sugar. Revered Pu Er Tea is an alluring choice that harmonizes flawlessly with these delectable delicacies, emanating an enchanting blend of earthly notes and robust woody aromas.

The mooncake tasting experience will be completed with sparkling tea mocktails – Bellini Vista and Night Flight – made with unique recipes created only for VistaJet by Fortnum & Mason for this Mid-Autumn festival.

VistaJet Full Moon on Board experience

VistaJet invites Members to discover its Full Moon on Board experience, a fully interactive workshop will also be available to turn VistaJet cabins into playrooms and party venues to unveil the extraordinary tale of the Jade Rabbit.

With organic sources from the UK, Bellini Vista is a mocktail twist on the Bellini classic cocktail. It pairs well with the berry notes and dry edge of the Rose Sparkling tea. The citrus of the drink provides a balance with a Bergamot aroma that elevates the zing finishing of mooncakes. Night Flight’s ripe fruitiness provides a lovely, interesting pairing with the floral notes of the original sparkling tea plus the herbal, savory fragrance of fresh thyme and gentle spice of cold brew chai. It balances off the sharp and edgy notes with mellow and malty mooncakes.

At Hong Kong’s 181 Fortnum & Mason Restaurant, located at the city’s iconic Victoria Harbour, VistaJet clients can also enjoy the festive mocktails complimentary of VistaJet when dining in the restaurant, and admire the stunning view of the Hong Kong skyline.

For this year’s moon festival, no matter whether it’s a short-haul flight within the region to visit families and friends, or flying loved ones to the other end of the world for an exotic holiday, clients can count on the Vista Members’ fleet of over 360 aircraft to take them anywhere anytime.

Paris, France, 7 September 2023 – Jeito Capital (“Jeito”), a global leading investment firm dedicated to healthcare and biopharma, announced today that it is co-leading a EUR 65m (USD 711M) Series A financing round in Corteria Pharmaceuticals (“Corteria” or the “Company”), a biopharmaceutical company specialized in the development of transformative therapies for unaddressed heart failure subpopulations.

Corteria was founded in 2021 by Sanofi’s former head of cardiovascular research, Philip Janiak and Marie-Laure Ozoux, former cardiovascular project leader at Sanofi, around two cardiovascular programs in-licensed from Sanofi2.

Proceeds from the financing will be used to advance the Company’s heart failure pipeline into the clinic.
Since its inception, Corteria’s pipeline has expanded rapidly and comprises today three first-in-class therapies :

  • A once-daily subcutaneous CRF23 agonist for the treatment of Worsening Heart Failure.

It is anticipated that Corteria will bring this lead asset, into clinical trials to validate the treatment pathway in early 2024.

  • A once-monthly subcutaneous CRF23 agonist, specifically developed for Right Heart Failure treatment.
    This compound also holds potential for broader applications in chronic cardiometabolic diseases, particularly those with coexisting conditions such as obesity and sarcopenia.
  • An AVP (arginine vasopressin) neutralizing monoclonal antibody for the treatment of Acute Heart Failure with Hyponatremia

Jeito Capital has partnered with Corteria Pharmaceuticals, reflecting its vision to champion promising French and European biopharma companies with the potential to become global market leaders especially in Europe and the US. This collaboration marks Jeito’s first investment in the cardiovascular space, where emerging innovations and a supportive regulatory environment offer transformative potential for patient outcomes.

Corterias strong pipeline of assets, backed by a dedicated and highly experienced team with a proven track record in cardiovascular development, represents an exciting opportunity to expand treatment options. Their commitment to transformative therapies as a leading French biopharma with global aspirations perfectly aligns with Jeito’s mission, and we see great potential to make a meaningful difference in patient lives.

Corteria focuses on translating important therapeutic innovations in cardiology into clinical practice. Our investment in Corteria reflects Jeito’s commitment to address significant unmet needs in the realm of cardiology. We are excited to join forces with Corteria’s dedicated team to develop a portfolio of medicines with important clinical benefits for patients.

“This financing marks a major milestone in our mission to bring therapies to heart failure subpopulations with high unmet needs,” said Philip Janiak, Founder and CEO of Corteria Pharmaceuticals. “We are extremely grateful to Jeito and OrbiMed as our new investors for their trust in our science and team and to our existing investors for their support and commitment since inception.
