DENVER, April 3, 2017 /Weed Wire/ â€” MassRoots, Inc. (OTCQB: MSRT), a leading technology platform for medical cannabis patients and businesses, is pleased to announce it has launched an updated business portal. Through this portal, businesses are able to target advertisements to MassRootsâ€™ one million registered users, schedule posts, view analytics, and manage their inventory and pricing data.
Additionally, MassRoots is pleased to provide the following business development updates:
Â· During the Companyâ€™s audit of fiscal year 2016, certain revenues related to the 420 Rally were removed in a one-time adjustment. Additionally, as the Companyâ€™s acquisition of DDDigtal, LLC dba â€śWhaxyâ€ť was not completed until January 2017, no revenues generated by Whaxy in 2016 were reflected in MassRootsâ€™ earnings.
Â· In early November 2016, MassRootsâ€™ mobile application was removed from Google Play, delaying the launch of geo-targeted advertising to over half of MassRootsâ€™ users. MassRoots was re-listed in Google Play on March 21, 2017, and growth and monetization initiatives are now live on its iOS, Android and web platforms.
Â· Over half of the Companyâ€™s 2016 operating expenditures - $7.28 million â€“ were related to stock and option-related compensation which did not take any cash out of the business.
Â· The Company has received more than $4.4 million in warrant exercises so far in 2017, including a recent early exercise by Aphria, Inc., resulting in MassRoots having its strongest cash position in corporate history.
Â· During the first quarter of 2017, MassRoots retired all outstanding long-term debt, resulting in a significantly stronger balance sheet.
Â· MassRoots recently launched a revamped website, focused on enabling medical cannabis patients to find the best products to treat certain conditions (i.e., effectiveness for treating ailments such back-pain or epilepsy).
â€śDuring the coming weeks, we expect to announce significant advertising and branding deals with some of the leading brands in the medical cannabis industry,â€ť stated MassRoots Chairman and CEO, Mr. Isaac Dietrich. â€śThe majority of our revenue is derived from just two states â€“ Colorado and California â€“ and as markets across the country continue to develop, MassRoots is positioned to be one of the leading advertising channels for dispensaries and brands in the cannabis industry. We have accomplished several key objectives over the past two weeks: returning to Google Play, launching a new website and updated business portal; and establishing a userbase of one million of the most enthusiastic cannabis consumers. Given our success in attaining these key objectives, our top priority for 2017 is significantly increasing MassRootsâ€™ revenues.â€ť
