ParMasters Golf Training Center Franchise
What's New?

What's new from the world of Parmasters Golf Training Centers?

 Yes, it is official, our merger to become a public company on the Toronto Stock Exchange - Venture, has closed.

The formal press release was sent announcing the merger completion Wednesday, December 30th, 2009.

Here is a link to the press release.

My sincere thanks to all of you for your efforts on this 24 month journey to the public markets. We're very excited to see what the markets value us in the days and weeks to come, and are quite excited at what access to capital will do for expanding the level of support we can provide to our clients in 2010 and beyond.

I know that the extra personnel for operations and marketing support will be well-received by all.

We started trading Monday, January 4th, at 6:30am PST under the symbol AIM.V on the TSX-Venture Exchange, be sure to tell all your friends and associates. (Oh, and we're not the AIM on Nasdaq, that's a missile guidance company.)

Best Regards, and here's to a Happy and Prosperous 2010 for us all.

That said, while the economy has melted down, we've been busier than ever at Parmasters.

Typically when the markets are down, franchising goes up, and when real estate is down, franchising goes up. But only twice in the last twenty years have both real estate and the market been down at the same time.

In both instances franchising has exploded as people realize that owning their own business, or investing in others that own their own business is the only way to make significant financials gains right now.

We've see great growth, in fact our year to date in 2009 is up 372% over last year.

Let us tell you more.




We're also very excited to have pro golfer Chip Beck, our new Board Member.

At the Pro-Am at our Ryder Cup festivities, we met Chip Beck, and as it turns out that day we shot a scramble 59. Little did we think that we'd soon be welcoming Mr 59 himself to our team.


And here is some information on Chip and his superb background in golf:

A three time All-American in college, Chip went on to earn four victories on the PGA Tour and twenty runner-up finishes in more than 600 PGA Tour events.

During the 1986 and 1989 US Open Championships, he tied for runner-up. In 1988, Chip won the Vardon Trophy for the PGA Tour leader in scoring average, one of only eleven golfers to earn that title since 1988.

There has been a Chip Beck appearance three times on the Ryder Cup, with his 1991 Ryder Cup performance being the best. In 1993, he was the runner-up at the Masters Tournament.

During the 1991 Las Vegas Invitational at the Sunrise Golf Club, Beck shot a round of 59 with 5 pars and 13 birdies including a three footer on the 18th hole, landing him in a tie for third in the tournament.

Chip has spent 40 weeks in the top 10 of the Official World Golf Rankings.

In 2006, he became eligible for the Champions Tour and returned to his golf career, where he continues to golf today.

Chip joins our parent company, Aegis Investment Management, Inc as a Board Member, and will use his incredible golf experience, dynamic personality, and wide circle of contacts to assist the company in meeting and exceeding it’s goals.


One last important business update. Our Links Golf Cafe franchise has been very well received. We now have awarded some 100 franchises for Chicago, Denver, Salt Lake City, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Rochester and Buffalo. Watch out everyone, here we come. For more details, visit

Meanwhile, hit 'em straight, but not too often.

Best Regards,

Paul Mangiamele, Chairman, President and CEO
Aegis Investment Management, Inc.
formerly Parmasters Golf Training Centers, Inc.
