(LIXT), and today we are reporting on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
A clinical-stage pharmaceutical company, Lixte Biotechnology Holdings, Inc. operates as a drug discovery company. It uses biomarker technology to identify enzyme targets related with serious common diseases and designs novel compounds to attack those targets. The Company's product pipeline is mainly centered on inhibitors of protein phosphatases, used alone and in combination with cytotoxic agents and/or X-ray and immune checkpoint blockers. Lixte Biotechnology Holdings lists on the OTC Markets Group's OTCQB. The Company is headquartered in East Setauket, New York.
Lixte Biotechnology has identified molecular signaling pathways altered in disease states and designed compounds that can safely target them in animal models. Its present drug portfolio includes inhibitors of serine/threonine protein phosphatases critical to cell division and DNA damage repair and inhibitors of protein deacetylases that regulate pathways of gene expression and protein degradation.
The phosphatase inhibitors enhance the effectiveness of cytotoxic anti-cancer drugs in general and radiation therapy. This makes them potentially useful for the treatment of numerous cancers in combination with existing standard chemotherapy regimens and with the developing targeted cytotoxic therapies of personalized cancer medicine.
Furthermore, in a pre-clinical study done with scientists under collaborative research and development agreements at the National Institutes of Health, the Company's lead compound, LB-100, enhanced the antitumor activity of a major immune checkpoint inhibitor. Therefore, this raises the possibility that in addition to improving the efficacy of standard cytotoxic anti-cancer drugs, Lixte Biotechnology's phosphatase inhibitors may potentiate immunotherapy regimens (Ho 2017).
Yesterday, Lixte Biotechnology announced the opening of a pharmacologic study of the ability of its lead clinical compound, LB-100, to enter the brain and penetrate recurrent glioblastoma multiforme tumors in patients in which surgical removal of their cancers is indicated (clinical trials registry: NCT03027388). The study is being conducted by the National Cancer Institute under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with Lixte Biotechnology.
The design of the NCI study is to ascertain the extent to which LB-100 enters recurrent GBMs and related brain tumors. Patients having surgery to remove one or more tumors will receive one dose of LB-100 before surgery and have blood and tumor tissue analyzed for the amount of LB-100 present and to determine whether the cells in the tumors show the biochemical changes expected to be present if LB-100 reaches its molecular target. The objective is to obtain data in up to eight patients.
Lixte Biotechnology Holdings, Inc. (LIXT), closed Thursday's trading session at $1.10, up 7.84%, on 13,858 volume with 20 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 2,078 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.125/$1.84.

Bionik Laboratories Corp. (BNKL)
Stockhouse, Wallet Investor, Zacks, Business Wire, The Street, Seeking Alpha, MarketWatch, InvestorsHub, PR Newswire, and YCharts reported earlier on Bionik Laboratories Corp. (BNKL), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
A robotics company, Bionik Laboratories Corp. concentrates on providing rehabilitation and assistive technology solutions to individuals with neurological and mobility challenges from hospital to home. The Company has three products on the market and four products in different stages of development. These products are focused on upper and lower extremity rehabilitation for stroke and other mobility-impaired patients. Bionik Laboratories has its head office in Toronto, Ontario and has its U.S. headquarters in Watertown, Massachusetts. The Company lists on the OTC Markets' OTCQB.
Bionik Laboratories' products include InMotion ARM ™; InMotion HAND™, and InMotion WRIST™. InMotionRobots™ are for all stages of recovery – from acute to chronic. The Company's family of robotic rehabilitation products are the result of pioneering medical engineering research and development (R&D) at the Newman Laboratory for Biomechanics and Human Rehabilitation at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
The design of Bionik Laboratories' modular systems approach to neurorehabilitation is to optimize the use of robotics in a way consistent with the most contemporary clinical research and neuroscience. This is while considering the latest understanding on motor learning interference and motor memory consolidation.
Regarding its technology, the Company's robotic products have excellent capacity for measurement and immediate interactive response. These products sense the patient's movement and respond to a patient's continually-changing ability. Moreover, robots guide the exercise treatment accordingly and provide quantifiable feedback on progress and performance. In addition, If the patient cannot move, the robot gently assists the patient to initiate movement towards the target.
This past January, Bionik Laboratories announced the commercial launch of its newest generation InMotion ARM/HAND™ robotic system for clinical rehabilitation of stroke survivors and those with mobility impairments because of neurological conditions. It showcased the new technology for the first time at the American Physical Therapy Association Combined Sections Meeting (APTA CSM) that took place January 23-26, 2019 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
For the remainder of Fiscal Year (FY) 2019, Bionik Laboratories is working to continue to expand sales channels in North America and internationally. The Company is also working to further develop InMotion robotic products to serve clinical rehabilitation providers and to provide home based solutions for extended rehabilitation therapy and mobility enhancement.
Moreover, Bionik will work in FY 2019 to enhance the effectiveness of its commercial outsourced manufacturing to support the anticipated boost in product demand and introduction of new products. In addition, it will focus on increasing sales of service contracts and warranties.
Bionik Laboratories Corp. (BNKL), closed Thursday's trading session at $4.00, up 99.00%, on 585 volume with 5 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 237 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.00/$100.00.
Bluestone Resources, Inc. (BBSRF)
Stock Orange, Wallmine, Barchart, OtcStockWatch, Penny Stock Hub, Current Charts, Dividend Investor, Investors Hangout, OTC Markets, MarketWatch, 4-Traders, and Geology for Investors reported earlier on Bluestone Resources, Inc. (BBSRF), and today we choose to highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Bluestone Resources, Inc. centers on advancing its 100 percent owned Cerro Blanco Gold and Mita Geothermal Projects in Guatemala. The Company controls the required surface rights for the Mita Geothermal Project and the Cerro Blanco Project. The Cerro Blanco Project is a classic hot springs-related, low sulphidation gold-silver deposit. A mineral exploration and development enterprise, Bluestone Resources is based in Vancouver, British Columbia and lists on the OTC Markets' OTCQB.
The Mita geothermal resource was discovered in the late 1990's during gold exploration in southeastern Guatemala. The permitted Mita Geothermal Project is contiguous to Bluestone Resources' Cerro Blanco Gold Project in Guatemala. It is in southeast Guatemala, about 160 kilometers by road from the capital, Guatemala City.
The Cerro Blanco Project economics and updated mineral resource estimate for Cerro Blanco indicates a strong project with an expected nine-year mine life producing 952,000 ounces of gold and 3,141,000 ounces of silver. Initial capital expenditures estimated in the Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) to finance construction and commissioning is estimated at US$170.8 million with all in sustaining cash (AISC) estimated to be US$490 per ounce of gold produced.
The Cerro Blanco Gold Project is not dependent on the Mita Geothermal Project. Nonetheless, Company Management's belief is that there are potential synergies between the two that enhance the economics of the Cerro Blanco Gold Project beyond what was outlined in the PEA.
Bluestone Resources announced in February 2019 the results of the Independent Feasibility Study prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 (NI 43-101) for its 100 percent owned high-grade Cerro Blanco Gold project. The Feasibility Study demonstrates that the Project represents a strong, fast pay-back, high-grade underground mining operation.
Also in February, Bluestone Resources announced that the 43-101 feasibility study technical report for the Cerro Blanco Gold Project in Guatemala was filed and is available for review under Bluestone's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on the Company's website at www.bluestoneresources.ca.
Last month, Bluestone Resources announced additional high-grade intercepts from the infill resource drill program at its Cerro Blanco Gold Project. The principal emphasis of the program is to upgrade Inferred Resources identified during the prior drill program completed in 2018. Furthermore, the design of the program is to define new resources along known veins in the mine plan that extend outside of the present resource envelope. The Step-Out drill hole intercepted 201.4 g/t Au and 2,139 g/t Ag over 1 meter at Cerro Blanco - 20 meters outside of the current resource envelope.
Bluestone Resources, Inc. (BBSRF), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.7398, up 1.06%, on 10,000 volume with 1 trade. The average volume for the last 3 months is 9,477 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.7106/$1.159.

Founded in 2013 and headquartered in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada, Organigram is focused on producing the highest-quality indoor-grown cannabis for patients and adult recreational consumers in Canada, as well as developing international business partnerships to extend the company's global footprint.?
Organigram delivers industry-leading yields and maximizes cannabis production at the lowest cultivation cost among other Canadian licensed producers. Organigram's high-tech facilities utilize an efficient, state-of-the-art mechanical room that includes both ethanol and CO2 extraction methods.
The company first began as a medical cannabis provider producing 5,000 kg/year (11,000 lbs) of 100 percent organic cannabis grown in pre-fabricated grow pods. Within two years, Organigram increased production to 36,000 kg/year (70,000 lbs) by utilizing an inventive, indoor 3-tier growing system. The company's pharmaceutical grade, state-of-the-art facility currently houses over 45,000 flowering plants growing at any one time.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP)
Traditionally, consumers have relied on smoking to achieve higher absorption rates and fast onset of bioactive compounds such as nicotine and cannabinoids. Ingesting drugs and molecules through edibles is simply safer than inhaling them. However, the absorption of edibles has proven slow, and the taste can be unpleasant without the aid of sweeteners. Now, thanks to a revolutionary oral technology, it is possible to deliver bioactive substances via oral ingestion without the need for the unhealthy practices of inhalational or added sweeteners. Biotechnology company Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) has developed and out-licenses its drug-delivery platform, DehydraTECH, promoting healthier administration methods.
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP) has developed and out-licenses its proprietary technology for improved taste, rapidity, and delivery of bioactive compounds, including nicotine and cannabinoids. To achieve higher absorption rates and fast onset, consumers traditionally defaulted to smoking. Lexaria provides a superior administration method by delivering these substances through a patented process within edible food products, thus eliminating all the harmful health consequences of smoking.
Lexaria’s technology is unique in that it takes advantage of GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) food ingredients processed with its patented DehydraTECHTM technology to improve taste, remove odor, and decrease the time to onset of bitter-tasting drugs. Lexaria is primarily a B2B enterprise and has existing cannabinoid licensing agreements with companies in Canada, the largest-market states in the United States, and internationally. Lexaria has entered into a R&D partnership with one of the largest cigarette companies in the world for oral forms of nicotine delivery. Lexaria has also developed its own brands partly for demonstration purposes, utilizing its patented technology to infuse hemp oil ingredients within popular foods such as coffee, tea, and supplements. These brands include ViPova™ and TurboCBD™.
In 2015, Lexaria commissioned an independent third-party lab to test its technology under carefully monitored in vitro conditions. Results showed that the company’s technological process and lipid formulation improve intestinal absorption as much as 500%. Lexaria has conducted multiple rounds of studies including in vivo and human clinical. In absorption studies conducted on rats, for example, Lexaria detected nicotine in the animal’s bloodstream just two minutes after it entered the stomach. In a randomized, double blinded human clinical study, cannabidiol (CBD) was measure in the human bloodstream at a 317% higher rate 30 minutes after swallowing a capsule processed with DehydraTECH than a non-enhanced capsule of equal strength.
Lexaria also has an R&D partnership with the Canadian government’s National Research Council. That R&D is expected to characterize molecular bond formation theorized to occur with Lexaria’s unique technology between the lipid delivery agents and the bioactive substances it processes and combines. Results from this R&D have helped support B2B relationships with Fortune 500 companies.

Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST)
Earth Science Tech (OTCQB: ETST) aims to exploit the surging demand for cannabinoid products by offering first-class cannabinoids. An article discussing the company reads, "The company's cannabinoids are of the highest purity and quality on the market. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/eZr8c.
Earth Science Tech, Inc. (ETST) is an innovative biotechnology company operating in the fields of hemp cannabinoid (CBD), nutraceutical, pharmaceutical and medical device research and development. Earth Science Tech offers the highest purity and quality, full-spectrum, high-grade hemp CBD (cannabidiol) oil on the market. Made using the supercritical CO2 liquid extraction process, the company’s CBD oil is 100 percent natural and organic. Earth Science Tech has partnered with the University of Central Oklahoma and DV Biologics Laboratory to conduct research and development projects that scientifically support and advance the healthcare benefits of its high-grade hemp CBD oil.
Earth Science Tech Inc. currently has three wholly owned subsidiaries focused on developing its role as a world leader in the CBD space and expanding its work in the pharmaceutical and medical device sectors. These subsidiaries include:
- Earth Science Pharma, Inc., which is committed to development of low cost, noninvasive diagnostic tools, medical devices, testing processes and vaccines for sexually transmitted infections and/or diseases. Earth Science Pharmaceutical CEO and chief science officer Michel Aubé is leading the company’s research and development efforts. The company’s first medical device, MSN-2, is a home kit designed for the detection of STIs, such as chlamydia, from a self-obtained gynecological specimen. Earth Science Pharma is working to develop and bring to market medical devices and vaccines that meet the specific needs of women.
- Cannabis Therapeutics, Inc. (“CTI”), which is poised to take a leadership role in the development of new, leading-edge, cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products. CTI is invested in research and development to explore and harness the medicinal power of cannabidiol. The company holds a provisional application patent for a CBD product that is focused on developing treatments for breast and ovarian cancers.
- KannaBidioiD (“KBD”) provides a wide variety of products geared toward the recreational space of cannabis. KBD’s unique Kanna and CBD formulation is sold and distributed in CBD-infused edibles and vapes/e-liquids products. Kanna and CBD synergistically enhance one another, providing optimal relaxation, an uplifting sensation, enhanced focus and the added benefit of assisting with nicotine reduction therapy.
Earth Science Tech celebrated a significant, developmental year during 2017 by sharing its achievements in a condensed end-of-year report. Among the report’s highlights are the implementation of a development plan for the coming three years, which includes expanding into Canada and opening new manufacturing and shipping facilities. Of particular interest is the acquisition of Canna Inno Laboratories Inc., a company headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, which gives Earth Science Tech access to Canadian government grants offered to innovators in the pharmaceutical industry. ETST has also launched development of proprietary prophylactic therapies utilizing cannabidiol (CBD) to treat various forms of breast cancer.
In October 2017, ETST announced it is cooperating with the Clinique SIDA Amité (AIDS Friendship Clinic) for a mini-clinical trial, the last trial needed before the MSN-2 device, designed for the detection of STIs, enters molecular diagnostic trials. And in November 2017, the company began pre-launch human trials on a new CBD formula to fight against the U.S. opioid epidemic. The new formula, expected to decrease cravings and the negative effects of withdrawal in addicts, is based on industrial hemp CBD mixed with a known natural ingredient proven to help increase dopamine levels. ETST’s medical devices will first be launched in Vietnam, Djibouti and Morocco while the company awaits regulatory permission to enter the North American market.
The company expects to up-list to the OTCQB in early 2018, which management believes will attract well-funded institutional investors and pave the way to becoming the next billion-dollar-in-capitalization company on the OTC markets. Other highlights include completion of the company’s Scientific Advisory Council with a team of recognized scientists, the launching of several CBD-infused edible products and entry into the medical devices market through collaborative partnerships.
Earth Science Tech has signed a collaborate agreement with Laboratories BNK Canada, a private laboratory that will conduct the clinical studies necessary for MSN-2 medical device-related services to meet regulatory requirements. ETST has confirmed the MSN-2 device’s ability to detect chlamydia, and is working to validate similar results for gonorrhea, both highly infectious diseases that often have permanent consequences for patients. ETST will also add testing for trichomoniasis and a complete body fluid panel to detect the different serotypes of the human papillomavirus (HPV) that causes cervical cancer. These additions will help the company create sales opportunities in the global market for diagnostic testing of STDs that Transparency Market Research has indicated will grow to $108 billion by 2019.
Cannabis Therapeutics is in the development stage of two cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical drugs and three cannabinoid-based nutraceutical products targeting a variety of ailments such as anxiety, depression, triple negative breast cancer, and fatty liver disease, among others. Research into the benefits of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid molecules found in the cannabis plant is supported by ETST’s International Application for Provisional Patent titled “Cannabidiol Compositions Including Mixtures and Uses Thereof,” which was filed on October 8, 2015. Cannabis Thera’s R&D efforts are concentrated on developing CBD-based drugs and nutraceutical products and in working to integrate the CBD molecule with existing generic drug molecules to create more efficient medications with fewer and less severe side effects. A report in Hemp Business Journal predicts the CBD consumer market will grow to $2.1 billion by 2020, while other industry experts expect an increase to almost $3 billion by 2021. A recent report by Statista projects the U.S. consumer market for cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals could reach $50 billion by the year 2029.
The management team at Earth Science Tech brings decades of invaluable experience to the nutraceutical, dietary supplement field as well as the life sciences sectors. Nickolas S. Tabraue, who serves as the president, director and chief operating officer, is an industry veteran with extensive knowledge of supplements, retail management, customer service and sales expertise. He is joined by CEO and CSO Dr. Michel Aubé, a microbiologist whose scientific research in sexually transmitted infections, cancer and stem cell biology has been widely published in several prestigious medical journals. Sergio Castillo, chief marketing officer, and Gabriel Aviles, chief sales officer, bring a wealth of marketing and sales experience to Earth Science Tech, which is complemented by Issa El-Cheikh, Ph.D., and his 25 years in the international finance, accounting, planning and execution of large scale transactions in the public and private sectors.
Earth Science Tech’s products include CBD, a natural constituent of hemp oil derived from hemp stalk and seed. EST offers CBD in the form of vitamins, minerals, herbs, botanicals, personal care products, homeopathies, functional foods and other products delivered in such forms as capsules, tablets, soft gels, chewables, liquids, creams, sprays, powders and whole herbs. Earth Science products can be found at retail stores throughout the United States and are available for purchase through the internet.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTCQX: PQEFF)
Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSXV:PQE; OTC:PQEFF; FSE: PQCF), at the request of the Market Surveillance group of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC), announces that the Company is not aware of any material undisclosed information that may be contributing to the level of trading activity of its shares on the TSX Venture Exchange.
Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTCQX: PQEFF) is a Canadian-registered, publicly traded company engaged in the development and implementation of proprietary technologies for the environmentally safe extraction of heavy oils from oil sands, oil shale deposits and shallow oil deposits. The company is focused on oil sands exploration and production on mineral leases in Vernal, Utah, and in expanding production capacity at its Asphalt Ridge heavy oil extraction facility in Utah.
Petroteq Energy’s patent-pending application is a closed-loop, solvent-based process, which results in significantly lower per-barrel production costs than those incurred with traditional hot water-based oil sands extraction technologies. This green technology utilizes a small, modular footprint, produces no greenhouse gases, requires no high temperatures, leaves only clean dry sand, and could be deployed to unlock heavy oil deposits located around the world.
The Company’s Asphalt Ridge mineral lease on 2,500-plus acres in northeastern Utah features a large contingent oil sands resource base with an estimated 87 million barrels of oil equivalent. In 2015, the company produced 10,000 barrels of oil from the Utah location and plans to increase production are underway. Utah holds over 32 billion barrels of undeveloped oil sands resources, which are also known as “oil-wet” deposits containing a mixture of sand and a dense, extremely viscous form of petroleum referred to as bitumen or tar. A recent upswing in developing domestic energy sources has intensified interest in technological advances such as Petroteq’s Clean Oil Recovery Technology (CORT) System.
The Company continues to evaluate the development of other medium to heavy oil exploration, production and recovery projects on a global basis through a variety of structured agreements. These opportunities or other arrangements with private and governmental entities that utilize Petroteq Energy’s proprietary licensed technologies are expected to generate a significant return on investment.
The Company’s management team, board of directors and officers form an invaluable cross-section of industry leaders with extensive experience ranging from chemical engineering and solvent research, business development, international project management, entrepreneurial achievements, and senior management for global energy companies in North America and the Middle East. This impressive knowledge base covers both conventional and unconventional oil and gas projects and production, both in upstream and downstream industry sectors.
Petroteq Energy is also participating in a blockchain initiative aimed at solving the global transaction needs of the oil and gas industry through the development of PetroBLOQ. PetroBLOQ recently joined the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (“EEA”), the world’s largest open-source blockchain initiative. Membership with the 200-member EEA represents a wide variety of industries and offers 14 industry-focused, member-driven working groups.
“Joining this community of forward-looking enterprises and blockchain innovators is an important step for PetroBLOQ as we develop transformative solutions for the oil and gas industry,” said Petroteq Energy Chairman Alex Blyumkin.
In addition, Petroteq has joined the American Petroleum Institute (API). The API is the only national trade association representing all facets of the oil and natural gas industry, promoting safety across the industry globally and influencing public policy in support of a strong, viable oil and natural gas industry.
“API has led the development of operating standards for our industry, and we look forward to contributing our experience with oilfield technologies in addition to introducing our PetroBLOQ platform to its members throughout the supply chain,” Blyumkin previously stated.
Petroteq Energy Inc. (PHVAF), closed the day's trading session at $0.42, up 0.24%, on 757,256 volume with 239 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 184,167 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.242/$1.43.

Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD)
Sugarmade Inc. (OTC:SGMD) announces the availability of a CannabisNewsAudio Broadcast titled, "Hemp Companies Move to Tackle CBD Shortfall." To hear the CannabisNewsAudio version, visit: http://cnw.fm/vs5Bu. To read the full editorial, visit: http://cnw.fm/46Hwn. Also today, the company was featured in the 420 with CNW by CannabisNewsWire. As it becomes increasingly clear that the bill to legalize recreational marijuana is unlikely to get enough support in the New Jersey senate, lawmakers are beginning to consider the possibility of letting voters make the decision through a referendum in 2020.
Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD), one of the largest publicly traded hydroponics supply companies moving into the industrial hemp space, is a product and brand marketing company investing in products and brands with disruptive potential. Sugarmade’s brands include: ZenHydro.com; CarryOutSupplies.com; and BudLife. Headquartered in Monrovia, California, a city within Los Angeles county, Sugarmade has various business operations in diverse marketplaces including packaging and paper goods for various industries, agricultural supplies.
Sugarmade has expanded into the European hydroponics supply market with a growing base of orders taken through Amazon UK. Over the past few financial quarters, Sugarmade has seen revenue growth patterns expand geographically. As recently as mid-2017, the majority of hydroponic-related revenue growth was seen from California and other West Coast marketplaces, however growth is becoming more geographically dispersed among U.S. states where legalization has eased restriction. This movement into the United Kingdom further expands the base of geographic growth areas for Sugarmade.
Sugarmade recently launched a new corporate initiative in the booming industrial hemp and CBD, committing up to $1 million in capital over the next 12 months to invest in Hempistry, Inc., a privately held Nevada corporation. Hempistry has begun planting an ultra-high cannabidiol (CBD) industrial hemp strain on a land option it holds on 23,000 acres of prime Kentucky farmland. The strain of industrial hemp being grown by Hempistry is ultra-rich in CBD but contains less than 0.3 percent of THC, the psychoactive ingredient found in cannabis. The U.S. hemp industry is expected to produce well over $1 billion in revenues in 2018, with a compound annual growth rate of 14 percent through 2022, according to the Hemp Business Journal.
Demand for industrial hemp and products derived from hemp is soaring, with no let-up in sight, which the company sees as a “tremendous opportunity to become a supplier to this fast-growing sector,” said Chairman and CEO Jimmy Chan, who is also an advisor and minority shareholder of Hempistry.
Sugarmade’s investment into the market for high-CBD hemp is expected to be highly accretive for common shareholders in two ways. First, Sugarmade’s investment will be in the form of common shares in Hempistry allowing Sugarmade common shareholders to possibly benefit from any future initial public offering of Hempistry. Second, Sugarmade is expected to sign a supply agreement with Hempistry for cultivation supplies, which would be additive to corporate revenues.
Sugarmade has also completed a master market agreement with industry leader BizRight Hydroponics, Inc., a leading marketer and manufacturer of cannabis and hydroponic growth supplies, which offers a range of hydroponics-related products including: HPS grow lights, electronic ballasts, HPS bulbs, nutrient mixes, environmental control products, pH measurement and calibration solutions and storage products. BizRight operates the ZenHydro.com website and other e-commerce properties and sells various products to distributors and retailers. BizRight is expected to produce in excess of $30 million in revenues during 2017, with substantial growth expected for 2018.
Sugarmade division CarryOutSupplies.com, the leader in paper and plastic take-out supplies, serves nationwide customers by offering a wide array of high quality products that are cost-efficient, custom-made and delivered on time. This business unit currently serves 2,000 quick service restaurants, garnering from 30-40 percent of the market share. Sugarmade plans to expand operations via the addition of market share and the introduction of new product offerings.
CEO Jimmy Chan is an experienced business executive instrumental in growing multiple business operations with a strong expertise in international trade and banking, and international manufacturing and importation. He is also the founder of CarryOutSupplies.com, a company that revolutionized the custom-printed paper supplies subsector of the quick service restaurant industry, which merged with Sugarmade in 2014.
Arman Tabatabaei serves as operations consultant, providing high-level, day-to-day strategic guidance and tactical operational supervision for all aspects of the corporation’s business. He is an expert at data collection and analysis relative to resource management, risk forecasting and profit and loss management.
Sugarmade specializes in growing and acquiring innovative brands to maximize value for company employees, shareholders and other stakeholders. Sugarmade believes its future is very bright as the company expands operations within the cultivation sector and rapidly increases its revenue base. 6

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF)
The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF) was highlighted today in a publication from Financialnewsmedia.com, examining how reports show and predict that the U.S. will be at the epicenter of the global cannabis/marijuana markets.
The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF), whose principal location is in Hamilton, Ontario, produces farm grown, organic, pesticide-free medical cannabis in small batches using all natural, organic craft growing principles. TGOD is licensed under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) to cultivate medical cannabis. The company carries out its principal activities producing cannabis pursuant to the provisions of the ACMPR and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (Canada).
Committed to becoming the global leader in delivering organic cannabis solutions that enhance people’s lives, TGOD consistently adheres to the highest levels of excellence. Its world-class management team includes a proven group of leaders with outstanding executive and operational experience specific to consumer packaged goods, consumer products, cannabis and finance industries.
TGOD is positioned as one of the highest quality and most cost efficient cannabis producers in Canada by leveraging innovative technology and low-cost power solutions. It holds one of the largest land packages under a single ACMPR license in Canada, providing future cannabis Agri-park style development and opportunities for joint ventures, licensing and distribution partners. Its industry leading alliance partners include Eaton, Ledcor Group and Hamilton Utilities Corp.
Eaton is the second largest power management company in the world and promises to supply innovative and cost effective power solutions to meet TGOD’s growing demands. Construction management is supplied by Ledcor, Canada’s second largest multidisciplinary construction company and a pioneer in the Green Building Industry. An alliance with Hamilton Utilities Corp allows TGOD to reduce its power costs from $0.13 per kWh to less than $0.05 per kWh. Greenhouse design is provided by Larssen Greenhouse, whose 25-plus years of experience in building some of the most modern and sophisticated greenhouses in the industry will provide TGOD with state of the art, climate-controlled hybrid greenhouse solutions.
Canada is quickly becoming a hub for cannabis investors with over $1.3 billion raised by Canadian companies to date. There are 58 licensed producers to service a population of 36 million and only two organic producers. TGOD, which holds licenses in Ontario and Quebec, is strategically located in both provinces that together claim 22 million Canadians as residents. Another estimated 57 million people live next door in six U.S. bordering states.
The Canadian cannabis market currently has a massive supply demand gap, which makes TGOD’s expansion plans even more important to investors. These plans include a combined build-out capacity of 970,000 square feet, allowing TGOD to produce 116,000 kg annually of organic cannabis. Upon completion, Phase One in Hamilton, Ontario, which is fully funded, will provide 150,000 square feet of growing capacity capable of producing up to 14,000 kg of cannabis or $112 million in revenue at $8 a gram.
The company’s Quebec expansion will be constructed on a recently secured 75-acre property near Montreal. This new property has a planned expansion of 820,000 square feet capable of producing 102,000 kg of organic cannabis. The first phase of this expansion is underway and construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. Quebec’s first phase will consist of 220,000 square feet capable of producing 22,000 kg of cannabis. Two additional expansion phases will add 250,000 square feet (26,000 kg of cannabis) and 350,000 square feet (54,000 kg of cannabis). Power costs remain exceptionally low for both facilities with access to all other needed utilities available and close by.
TGOD also plans to gain a share of the burgeoning cannabis oils market which by Q1 2017 accounted for 49 percent of all cannabis sold in Canada under the ACMPR, up from only 27% in Q2 2016. TGOD has ordered a purpose-built extraction laboratory with an estimated commission in Q4 of 2017. This is a commercial-scale CO2 extraction unit capable of processing up to 12,000 kg of raw material per year and producing approximately $170 million worth of organic cannabis oils. Raw cannabis oil provides a significant downstream manufacturing opportunity into several potential recreational market verticals including edibles, beverages, topicals and concentrates.
Data from the Canadian ACMPR Market Trends report indicates a rising number of consumers will continue to seek out healthier, less conspicuous ways to consume cannabis, ensuring sales of organic cannabis oil products remain brisk. Organic cannabis products demand a significant premium compared to non-organic products and the demand keeps growing.
Plans to take the company public are underway with an initial public offering (IPO) slated for January 2018. In November, the company raised $13 million in equity financing and in March closed a $27 million non-brokered private placement. Another $20 million is currently being raised before the IPO in January, which will be utilized for expansion plans.
TGOD is uniquely positioned between the medical and recreational cannabis industry since Canada is scheduled to legalize cannabis for all adults in mid-2018. As of August 2017, TGOD has 2,400 shareholders. Established in 2012, TGOD’s motto, “Making Life Better,” can be seen in its strategic partnerships, top quality management team, and dedication to organic farming and principles.

The agreement calls for Supreme to supply Tilray with dried cannabis for support of medical cannabis patients in Canada for the period of one year.

The 7ACRES cultivation facility, one of the first 40 federally licensed cannabis producers in Canada, is focused on building a core competency in scaled cannabis production, which will give 7ACRES the needed flexibility to maintain leadership in the industry as the Canadian market grows and matures. Though 7ACRES is Supreme Cannabis’ flagship brand and only currently operating business unit, the company will continue to identify new opportunities to grow its portfolio of companies and build innovative cannabis businesses throughout the world.
7ACRES operates from a 342,000-square-foot cultivation facility in Kincardine, Ontario, and has been federally licensed since 2016. Current capacity is 13,333 kilograms dried cannabis annually, with plans to ramp up production by mid-2019 to a rate of 50,000 kilograms per year.
Supreme Cannabis seeks to differentiate 7ACRES from other licensed cannabis producers by producing premium quality product sustainably at scale. “Craft quality, commercial scale” is a slogan the company uses, and the Kincardine greenhouse employs state-of-the-art technology and cultivation best practices to strive toward that goal. Supreme identifies the quality of the 7ACRES product as the company’s primary strength and says a shared “passion for the plant” is the driver of company culture. Six Canadian provinces have signed supply agreements with Supreme, a fact the company credits to the high quality of 7ACRES cannabis.
Its customers, Supreme Cannabis management says, are informed and discerning regarding cannabis, and they value a premium brand that respects their product knowledge. The company believes its high regard for customers, premium product quality, and mass cultivation capability has allowed Supreme Cannabis to emerge as Canada’s preeminent premium cannabis producer. In the Canadian cannabis market, the company has established 7ACRES as a premium brand that’s distributed coast-to-coast and commands premium pricing. The 7ACRES brand is already listed as premium cannabis product in all provinces that disclose their cannabis listing categories, and 7ACRES on average wholesales for up to one-third higher in price than other brands in the Canadian cannabis market.
To further its distribution, in the medical cannabis market Supreme Cannabis has partnered with several Canadian cannabis retailers including Aurora Cannabis, Emerald Health Botanicals, Namaste, Zenabis, and others. The company’s investment portfolio also includes an equity position and long-term global distribution partnership with Medigrow, based in Lesotho, targeting the export of medical cannabis oil for the international market.
Supreme Cannabis seeks to make the company an innovator in the cannabis sector regarding design of cultivation facilities and development of operation excellence metrics. The management team is confident that the 7ACRES flagship brand, the company’s proprietary technology and products, and the company’s culture of passion for cannabis will deliver consistent long-term shareholder value.
Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (OTC: SPRWF), closed the day's trading session at $1.39, even for the day, on 332,225 volume with 434 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 598,218 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.85/$2.04.

Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO)
Pressure BioSciences (OTCQB: PBIO) ("PBI"), a leader in the development and sale of high pressure-based instruments, consumables, and related services for the global life sciences and other industries worldwide, on Wednesday announced that it will host a teleconference to discuss its first quarter 2019 financial results and provide a business update. To view the full press release, visit: http://nnw.fm/4KShF.
Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO) develops, markets and sells proprietary laboratory instrumentation and associated consumables to the life sciences sample preparation market. Sample preparation refers to the wide range of activities that precede most forms of scientific analysis. It is often complex and time-consuming, yet a critical part of scientific research. The market for sample preparation products is currently estimated at $6 billion worldwide.
The Company’s product line can be used to exquisitely control the sample preparation process. It is based on a patented, enabling technology platform called pressure cycling technology (“PCT”). PCT uses alternating cycles of hydrostatic pressure between ambient (14.5 psi) and ultra-high levels (up to 100,000 psi) to safely and reproducibly control critical biological processes, such as the lysis (breakage) of cells, the digestion of proteins, and the inactivation of pathogens.
Pressure BioSciences’ product line is led by its newly released, next-generation Barocycler 2320EXTREME instrument. Named a finalist in the prestigious 2017 R&D Awards (also known as the “Oscars of Innovation”), the Barocycler 2320EXT is already being touted by some key opinion leaders as an essential element of the $1.8 billion U.S. “Cancer Moonshot” program. For example, Professor Phil Robinson, Co-head of the cancer research center of the Children’s Medical Research Institute (Sydney, Australia), said in a recent interview: “We are collecting the whole proteome on 70,000 tumor samples from all classes where complete clinical outcome is known. Due to its unique capabilities, the Barocycler 2320EXT has become a critical part of our program. It is the primary enabler of the high-throughput component of the project. Without this step, our project simply could not be done. In fact, the Barocycler 2320EXT works so well we have just purchased two more.”
Momentum is building when it comes to the potential for using the Company’s unique PCT technology platform. Leading scientists are intrigued by Pressure BioSciences’ approach, which among other attributes, revolutionizes the process of rupturing cells (lysis) for further study, yielding superior biomolecules for investigation. The Company’s technology transcends current methods of breaking open cells, which use chemicals, blades, metal beads, or other damaging and altering methods that can ultimately adversely affect the result for researchers. Pressure BioSciences’ PCT technology utilizes customized, controlled hydrostatic (water) pressure to rupture cells in a chamber, enabling exquisitely customized levels of pressure to optimally break open different types of cells at prescribed pressure levels—something never before accomplished in a commercial setting. Using this pioneering method, the result is a truer, more legitimate sample, which boosts the efficacy of research and the quality of results. The potential impact of this technology on scientific advancement is enormous, enabling research scientists to begin their studies with biological samples of unprecedented integrity, with the potential to improve research outcomes at the earliest, most critical step. PCT can additionally inactivate pathogens (e.g., viruses, bacteria) using hydrostatic pressure, making the samples safer to study—another innovation with astronomical potential for application in a variety of markets.
The Company’s high-pressure instruments for research purposes are marketed throughout the United States, Europe, China and Japan. To date, Pressure BioSciences has installed nearly 300 PCT Systems in over 165 leading academic, government, biotech and pharma laboratories around the world. Its primary applications are in biomarker discovery, forensics, agriculture and pathology. Over 100 scientific papers have been published on the advantages of the PCT platform, which is also being used in the specialized fields of drug discovery and design, bio-therapeutics characterization, soil and plant biology, vaccine development and histology.
Impressive as their biotech business is, there is more to the PBI story. Pressure BioSciences recently received two patents in China for its novel Ultra Shear Technology (UST), a process that has potential in a wide range of industrial applications, including extending the shelf life of some food products and making two insoluble liquids (like oil in water) soluble. Patents have also been filed in many other countries worldwide. UST is a novel technique based on the use of intense shear forces generated from ultra-high-pressure valve discharge.
This important technology has the potential to play a significant role in a number of commercially important areas through its ability to create high-quality, stable nanoemulsions. Scientific studies indicate that improved absorption, higher bioavailability, greater stability, lower surfactant levels and other advantages can be achieved with nanoemulsions – all hugely important factors in the fields of nutraceuticals, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and in various medical products. There is an enormous opportunity in the cannabis market, since the technology can potentially reduce oil droplets containing cannabidiol (CBD) to nanoparticles, after which they can be safely suspended in a stable water solution—something many companies have endeavored to achieve without success. Researchers looking for a way to increase the bioavailability of cannabinoids in the body will find this technology a game changer.
The Company’s UST technology also has possibilities in the production of clean label foods, which are currently processed using several innovative methods, including high-pressure treatments (such as Starbucks’ Evolution line of juices). In 2015, the worldwide market for high-pressure processed (HPP) food was estimated at U.S. $10 billion. UST uses ultra-high pressures and certain valves to generate intense shear forces under controlled temperature conditions to produce nanoemulsions, and which also significantly reduces food-borne pathogens. Pressure BioSciences’ initial focus with this technology will be to evaluate UST for the production of high-quality dairy products and beverages.
Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO), closed the day's trading session at $3.15, off by 5.41%, on 5,811 volume with 25 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 11,180 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.52/$4.10.

Geyser Brands Inc. (TSX.V: GYSR)
Geyser Brands Inc. (TSXV:GYSR) ("Geyser Brands" or the "Company") is pleased to announce its subsidiary, 0957102 B.C. DBA Apothecary Botanicals (the "LP"), has secured a Health Canada license amendment approval to make amendments to its current 7,000 sq. ft. facility located in Port Coquitlam, BC.
Geyser Brands Inc. (TSX.V: GYSR) is a consumer healthcare company that builds and markets some of the world's most loved cannabis products and brands in the nutraceutical, cosmetics, food and beverage and pet sectors. Using its proprietary nanotechnology formulation, the company delivers creams, beverages, baked goods and tincture formulations with superior bioavailability and water solubility.
The efficacy of most hemp?products is restricted as the insoluble nature of the molecules prevents most of the product from permeating the skin or entering the body system. Geyser Brands solves this insolubility problem with an advanced delivery system that quickly and efficiently transports therapeutic agents directly to the bloodstream for maximum absorbency.
Made with all-natural materials, NanoFusion technology offers an array of advantages: enhances penetration for deeper skin penetration; improves the transport of active ingredients for site-specific targeting; delivers active ingredients across cell membranes for release within the cell; provides longer shelf-life and stability of molecules.
Geyser Brands operates a 7,000-square-foot facility in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, where its initial cannabis cultivation generated the first revenues out of the company's cultivation license granted in October 2018. Geyser Brands is approved as a licensed producer in compliance with Health Canada standards, which allows the company to pursue its processing and sales license. Obtaining this license will enable the company to extend its products and brands into the regulated Canadian cannabis market and directly to the consumer medical market.
Geyser Brands's integrated production chain and formulation lab develops innovative products using high-quality hemp and CBD for healthy lifestyle brands while its R&D lab produces product formulations designed to enhance bio-availability of hemp and CBD and shelf stability while maintaining all-natural ingredients and ensuring premium quality.
Geyser Brands will continue to seek opportunities to invest into the research and development of unique high-quality proprietary strains and technologies that target specific health-related conditions such as pain and inflammation reduction, insomnia, digestive issues and other commonly known ailments.
Among the brand formulations in Geyser Brand's portfolio are:
- Apothecary all-natural Hemp Terpene Pain Cream with optimal skin permeation
- Prohibition Cold Brew Mocha designed with water soluble hemp molecules
- Apothecary health products created to deliver fast-acting and high bioavailability in a spray formulation
- Baked hemp infused pet products, designed to alleviate anxiety and pain, created with NanoFusion for dosage control
Since 2014, Geyser Brands' CEO and Co-Founder Andreas Thatcher has been a principal at Rhizome Group, an entertainment company focused on building media IP through creative and market development. He previously was a founding partner at Rhizome Capital LLC, a U.S.-based media?investment?company specializing in marketing and distribution financing, and worked in the Investment Banking industry in?London and Toronto. Thatcher holds a master's degree in economics.
CFO Barry McKnight obtained his bachelor's degree from the University of British Columbia and is a Chartered Professional Accountant and?Certified Management Accountant registered in British Columbia. McKnight has over 20 years of experience as the principal of Barry D. McKnight Inc. He formerly was also a director of Indigo Sky Capital Corp. and has been the CFO and a director of the Company since 2016 and Corporate?Secretary of the Company since 2017.
Geyser Brands's Co-Founder Brad Kersch brings a strong business background with over 20 years of experience in?successful startups and working?with Fortune 500 companies. He spent his early years in the advertising and?marketing field and went on to form Hyperware, a clothing?company that sold branded clothing to retailers across Canada?before selling to clothing giant Ocean Pacific (OP). Kersch?became the president of Shoreline Studios, Canada's largest and?oldest?studio for film and TV. In 2014 he started Solace Management Group, a hemp product company focused on pet, cosmeceutical, and nutraceutical markets. As of February 2019, Geyser Brands signed a non-binding LOI to acquire Solace Management. Upon completing the proposed Solace acquisition, Geyser Brands intends to launch into the execution phase of its plan — to take its brands global through retail and digital direct-to-consumer experiences, launching its hemp-infused cannabis brands and products in the U.S., European Union, and Asia, and its CBD-infused line of products in jurisdictions where the therapeutic ingredient is legal.
Kuldip Gill, head of Geyser Brands' R&D program, has more than 35 years of experience in the cannabis industry. Gill built the largest manufacturing facility?in the lower mainland in Surrey, British Columbia, complete with R&D, analytical and quality control labs approved by both the FDA and Health Canada. He has to date created over 3,500 formulas, most notably Lakota pain relief gel.

Sproutly Canada, Inc. (OTCQB: SRUTF) (CSE: SPR) (FRA: 38G)
Sproutly Canada, Inc. (CSE: SPR) (OTCQB: SRUTF) (FSE: 38G) ("Sproutly" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on its premium cannabis brand for the recreational market, CALIBER. CALIBER is designed for the cannabis connoisseur and delivered via Sproutly's craft cannabis flower production.
Sproutly Canada, Inc. (OTCQB: SRUTF) (TSX.V: SPR) (FRA: 38G) is developing and bringing to market cannabis consumer products with a focus on beverages. The company’s core mission is to become the leading supplier of water-soluble cannabis solutions and bio-natural oils for brands in the emerging cannabis beverage and edibles market.
To make this happen, Sproutly acquired Infusion Biosciences to bring to market a patent-pending Aqueous Phytorecovery Process (APP) technology, a fundamental paradigm shift within the cannabis industry. Replacing traditional water-compatible solutions with true natural water solubility improves the body’s ability to utilize cannabinoids, making the effect of the cannabis almost immediate.
This revolutionary process doesn’t alter the cannabis compounds and provides an onset time and offset time that mimics the same effects as inhaled marijuana. That means consumers may feel effects in five minutes or less and be free from the desired effect in approximately 90 minutes—a vastly different ingestion pattern than current methods. In addition, the water-based cannabinoids can be mixed with other liquids and stay dissolved in those liquids. The application of water-soluble cannabis infusions has potential to be widespread in both medicinal and recreational cannabis sectors, giving Sproutly a distinctive edge in a market with untapped potential.
Sproutly’s business model is focused on processing rather than cultivating, which means its success is not constrained to growing its own cannabis. The company does own a Toronto-based, ACMPR-licensed facility designed and built with a focus on cultivating pharmaceutical-grade cannabis to produce and formulate the first natural, truly water-soluble cannabis solution. Its water-soluble ingredients and bio-natural oils will deliver revolutionary brands to international markets that are searching for well-defined commercial products.
Sproutly’s entrance in the cannabis market is perfectly timed as cannabis is moving towards mainstream acceptance. Potential users are, however, interested in consuming cannabis products as drinks and using it as oils rather than smoking. The potential cannabis beverage market is staggering, and with Sproutly owning the exclusive rights to APP technology in Canada, Australia, Jamaica, Israel and the entire European Union, the company is looking at significant international expansion opportunities.
Sproutly plans to capitalize on these international opportunities by executing on partnerships with local and globally established consumer brands to leverage their existing customer bases, expand brand loyalty, and assist with marketing and support distribution networks to deliver scientific breakthroughs with speed and efficiency?worldwide.
Sproutly believes that talent drives growth. The company is committed to bringing together the best and brightest minds in the cannabis space to help with their mission to disrupt the global beverage and consumables market.

Video Introducing Direct Solar - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jl0u8eZpUrI&t=1s.
SinglePoint, Inc. (SING) is a diversified holding company with operations in multiple industries and verticals including two high-performing market sectors: legal cannabis and cryptocurrencies. SinglePoint has grown from a full-service mobile technology provider to a recognizable brand with a diverse portfolio of undervalued subsidiaries with multiple revenue streams.
SinglePoint is researching opportunities where it can be an active participant by influencing the strategy and direction of high-potential companies whose verified assets offer attractive possibilities for shareholders. The company is guided by a visionary leadership team with extensive experience in technology, engineering, marketing and raising capital.
SinglePoint is bullish on the cannabis industry, bitcoin and blockchain technologies, which is evident in its recent acquisitions and joint-venture announcements. Recent SinglePoint key highlights include:
- A joint venture with Smart Cannabis Corporation (OTC: SCNA) to license and market Smart Cannabis' SMART APP. SMART APP enables cannabis growers to measure all aspects of cultivation, from soil nutrient levels to watering cycles and carbon dioxide content in the air. SMART APP will integrate SinglePoint's bitcoin payment solution to enable growers to process safer and more secure transactions.
- A joint venture with Global Payout (OTC: GOHE) will build on existing financial technology solutions developed by SinglePoint and Global Payout's subsidiary MoneyTrac Technology, Inc., to fully optimize the delivery of mobile payment applications for domestic and international organizations.
- A joint venture with AppSwarm (OTC: SWRM) to start development on a proprietary delivery application that will enable licensed cannabis delivery services and licensed dispensaries to safely make in-home cannabis deliveries.
- Signed original "Shark Tank" member Kevin Harrington as company spokesman for an innovative, compatible virtual wallet to store any type of cryptocurrency. Harrington recently finished shooting a new national ad campaign featuring SinglePoint and the virtual wallet's secure method of storing cryptocurrencies.
- Entered into a letter of intent to acquire 100 percent of Bitcoin Beyond, a premier platform that enables merchants to accept bitcoin payments using existing web-enabled point-of-sale devices.
- Through SING subsidiary, SingleSeed, the company will soon offer a proprietary cryptocurrency solution that links both cannabis merchants and consumers who seek to take advantage of bitcoin-powered transactions using debit and credit cards. In addition to making bitcoin-backed card purchases possible, the solution enables cannabis dispensaries to digitally track and manage their product inventories, performing tasks like uploading product data, photos and descriptions. The system deducts items automatically from a dispensary's product listings when a purchase is made. While this fully KYC-AML compliant point-of-sale platform can be utilized for any other retail setting, it will fill a critical need in the underbanked cannabis industry as it continues to seek non-cash payment solutions outside of traditional banking circles.
SinglePoint CEO and founder Greg Lambrecht leads the company in its mission to capture opportunities through an aggressive expansion strategy across a broad range of assets. Lambrecht oversees all company operations including investor relations, leadership of the board of directors, and daily business activities. As the founder of PCI, a leading consumer product distribution company, Lambrecht negotiated agreements with the nation's largest retail outlets and led PCI through a NASDAQ listed IPO, raising $10 million.
