LOS ANGELES, Dec. 27, 2017 /Weed Wire/ — Agritek Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: AGTK) www.AgritekHoldings.com, a fully integrated, active real estate investor for the cannabis sector and consultant for multiple cannabis brands, today announced that the Company has received an additional $1,000,000 dollars as a capital infusion from institutional investors to the Company. As previously stated in an effort to stop dilution of its common stock and continue to stabilize the share price of the Company, Agritek Holdings has paid off the first $200,000 in toxic convertible notes and plans to pay the majority of the remaining $500,000 before the year ending 2017. The single institutional investor has agreed to provide capital exceeding $1,000,000 to the Company in both equity and new terms to pay off close to $700,000 in toxic debt to the Company’s various convertible note-holders.
B. Michael Friedman, CEO of Agritek Holdings, Inc., stated: “The elimination of troubling convertible toxic-type debt from our balance sheet and move to an equity blend of financing has already had a positive effect to help strengthen the value of our company and our common share market price, almost tripling our market cap in the last two weeks. The buyout plan of our current toxic, convertible debt which has consistently put extreme pressure on our common stock price through conversions of millions of shares will be completed before 2018. We hope to continue to reward our shareholders and new investors of Agritek Holdings by organic growth through our increase in common stock price and expanding our revenue streams through new acquisitions of real estate and brands within the cannabis sector to be announced in 2018.
“The first airing of our Fox Business News special segment next week in my opinion will immediately validate our higher standing within the cannabis sector as we continue to gain national attention of our business strategy as one of the more stable, innovative fully reporting Companies in our industry,” further stated Friedman.
