Anticipated $1.5 million cost reduction to fuel growth and real estate sales momentum into 2025

MIAMI, FL / ACCESSWIRE / April 9, 2024 / Gaucho Group Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:VINO), a company that includes a growing collection of e-commerce platforms with a concentration on fine wines, luxury real estate, and leather goods and accessories (the "Company" or "Gaucho Holdings"), today announced a series of strategic measures to streamline operations and cost efficiencies. These efforts are expected to yield approximately $1.5 million in expense savings over the next 12 months, with the anticipation of up to an additional $1 million in expenses saved in 2025. By eliminating certain functions and offshoring others to its offices in Argentina, the Company aims to capitalize on the cost-effective labor and specialized skills available in the region. Furthermore, the savings accrued from these strategic initiatives are planned to be allocated towards marketing expenses, aiming to promote its portfolio of brands, including Gaucho - Buenos Aires and Maison Gaucho, Algodon Fine Wines, Algodon Wine Estates, and its hospitality projects.

This restructuring is not just about cost-saving; it represents a strategic pivot towards maximizing the potential of Gaucho Holdings' operations in Argentina, particularly in the realm of luxury real estate. The Company is poised to recognize revenue from the deeding of real estate projects in 2025, with a primary focus on the vineyard estate lots at Algodon Wine Estates in San Rafael, Mendoza, Argentina. To date, approximately 15% of the total lots have been sold, leaving significant room for future sales and development. The potential revenue from these sales, coupled with interest income from the Company's self-financing options to buyers, is expected to significantly enhance financial results in the coming years.

Furthermore, Gaucho Holdings is closely monitoring the evolving economic landscape in Argentina, particularly the potential adoption of the USD as the country's primary currency. This shift, championed by President Milei, could drastically change the dynamics of the real estate market by enabling leverage through bank lending, a move that could significantly boost real estate values across the nation. This transition to a more stable currency for transactions could unveil substantial growth opportunities for Gaucho Holdings' real estate assets.

Scott Mathis, CEO and Founder of Gaucho Group Holdings, provided insight into the significance of these developments, stating, "We anticipate a potential binary event on the horizon that could markedly enhance Argentina's real estate values: It's a little-known fact that the Argentine real estate market is predominantly non-leveraged, a unique characteristic that has historically shaped its valuation dynamics. The introduction of leverage-providing the ability for buyers to finance their purchases with borrowed funds-could catalyze a significant boom in real estate values. This would be a credit to President Milei, who is pushing to take Argentina away from the peso and use the USD as its currency. This adoption of the USD could pave the way for banks to resume their lending activities. Currently, the volatility and consistent devaluation of the peso deter banks from lending, as repayments made in a depreciating currency erode the value of the returned capital. A shift to using the USD could stabilize the lending environment by offering a more reliable and sustainable currency for financial transactions. This potential shift presents an unprecedented opportunity for growth and investment, underscoring the untapped potential of the market and positioning our real estate assets for considerable appreciation."

Gaucho Holdings remains committed to its core mission of offering unparalleled luxury experiences through its diverse portfolio while fostering sustainable growth and operational excellence. These strategic initiatives are expected to lay a solid foundation for the Company's endeavors moving forward, demonstrating a proactive approach to navigating the challenges and opportunities of the global market landscape.
