DENVER, Aug. 15, 2016 /Weed Wire/ — Medicine Man Technologies Inc. (OTCQB: MDCL), one of the country’s leading cannabis branding and consulting companies, announced today that it has agreed in principle to acquire Pono Publications Inc. and Success Nutrients Inc., each a Colorado corporation. The closing of this transaction is subject to due diligence and execution of more definitive agreements, which is expected to occur on or before November 9, 2016. The consideration to be paid by Medicine Man Technologies includes the issuance of 7 million shares of Medicine Man Technologies’ common stock and retention of key team member employment consideration.
The Pono Publications Inc. brand includes the Three A LightTM cultivation publication with a ‘Professional Grade’ version (scheduled for release by year end) being developed exclusively for both Three A LightTM and Medicine Man Technologies clients. This new cultivation protocol has already achieved yields in the 450-gram per square foot range (flowering canopy, annualized) and is deployable in both greenhouse and indoor based cultivation facilities. In addition to having a consulting client in Las Vegas, since January of this year, Pono Publications has sold in excess of 800 of the Three A LightTM manuals (currently list for $500) on both their web site (www.threealight.com) and on Amazon.com.
The Success Nutrients brand provides one of the key underpinnings of the cultivation methodology and is essential to the overall Three A LightTM performance metric. With an investment of two years of research, development and intense testing, this product line was specifically formulated for the cannabis industry. Within nine months of operations, this new start up business has already achieved strong growth, most recently generating $100,000 in sales in July (up from 1st month sales of $4,000 in December 2015). While there can be no assurances of future growth given at this time, recent inquiries suggest this company will be growing considerably in the upcoming year (www.successnutrients.com).
The combination of these two new businesses is expected to allow Medicine Man Technologies to establish a cultivation improvement offering to existing cultivation facility owners not yet able to achieve these performance levels. Adoption of this new methodology is expected to allow most business owners the ability to improve their existing cultivation performance metrics while maintaining the highest quality product.
Josh Haupt, Principal and Founder of Pono Publications and Success Nutrients stated, “After spending many years in development of both my proprietary nutrient line and cultivation methodologies, I am pleased to have found a new partnership opportunity in which I truly believe my companies will be able to grow with. The fact that Medicine Man Technologies is also a well-known presence in the cannabis industry should allow us to add substantial value back to the business as a whole while making more efficient use of our mutual resources.”
Brett Roper, MMT’s COO and Co-Founder noted, “As we continue to search for opportunities within our industry we were amazed to find such a remarkable prospect so close to home. The fact that these two ventures are so well developed and already generating cash flow as well as profits is extraordinary and we are excited to add these two new elements to our brand warehouse deployment. Additionally, Success Nutrients, in combination with Pono Publications and Three A LightTM add a whole new depth of value to the current Medicine Man Technologies cultivation deployment initiatives we are deploying nationwide for our clients.”
Andy Williams, MMT’s CEO and Co-Founder added, “Prior to touring Josh Haupt’s cultivation facilities, I had never met an industrial cultivator of cannabis that was better than Medicine Man. Now I have. I believe Josh Haupt and Three A LightTM are hands down the best industrial cultivators of cannabis in the world. I could not be more excited to welcome Pono Publications and Success Nutrients to Medicine Man Technologies. The revenue and earnings potential of both products are tremendous. Paired with the leadership and charisma that Josh Haupt will bring to our executive management team and the synergies of our current product and service portfolio, the potential growth on all product and service fronts is exciting.”
