LOS ANGELES, Dec. 21, 2015 /Weed Wire/ — Pineapple Express, Inc. (OTCPink: PNPL) (the “Company”), a publicly traded company that offers cannabis industry consulting, technology, investments, turn-key property rentals, and branding concepts to businesses in the legal cannabis industry, announced today that it will acquire the business and assets of THC Industries, Inc. (“THC”), including the web domain www.THC.com and the trademark “THC®”. THC has been an operating business in California since 1996, making it one of the first internet based cannabis related businesses in the nation. A non-binding letter of intent has been executed between the parties and definitive agreements are being drafted for execution on or about December 31, 2015, and effective January 1, 2016.
The acquisition includes the THC.com URL address, the THC® branded clothing line, a clothing distribution facility, and the rights to exclusively sell apparel, namely T-shirts, hats, beanies, pants, shorts, baseball jerseys, jackets, sweatshirts, polo shirts, and sweat pants displaying the THC® trademarked name and logo. The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions, including execution of definitive binding agreements and the Company’s satisfactory due diligence review of THC, including THC’s compliance with industry rules and regulations.
“We believe that including this premium domain name to the Pineapple Express family further enhances our profile and will assist in building brand awareness for us. THC.com is easy to remember and if marketed correctly, should attract thousands of visitors per day. We are confident we can increase revenue substantially for THC industries by hiring the business’s founder to return to a full-time management role, adding more marketable product to the company inventory, re-designing the website, and heavily promoting the THC brand,” stated Matthew Feinstein, CEO and Chairman at Pineapple Express. “We will disclose additional details about the transaction when the definitive agreements are signed. We look forward to bringing this one home for our shareholders.”
