LOS ANGELES, CA, May 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE – Agritek Holdings, Inc. (AGTK) www.AgritekHoldings.com, a fully integrated, active cannabis real estate investor and brand licensor for the cannabis sector in the United States and Canada, today announced that the Company will be filing an extension today for the 10-Q report ending March 31, 2019. The extension of time is necessary due to unanticipated delays in compiling financial reports and other data that is necessary in preparing and completing the 10-Q financial statement. The Company has recently filed its’ annual 10-K, and the delay in the quarterly report to be completed next week through the extension period will not delay the Company’s application to be uplisted on the OTCQB.
Additionally, Agritek Holdings is pleased to announce that the Company has executed a purchase agreement for the 15,000 Sq. ft. licensed manufacturing facility in San Juan, Puerto Rico, in partnership with its licensee 1919 Clinic. The purchase price of the building is $950,000, with Agritek Holdings financing the facility over the term of six (6) months. 1919 Clinic will continue to pay Agritek Holdings Inc. rent and consulting fees at the time of closing on the facility.
The state-of-the-art manufacturing facility is presently approved and licensed by the Department of Health of Puerto Rico for cannabis manufacturing, extraction and production of edibles. 1919 Clinic has already been manufacturing and distributing Agritek Holdings licensed brands of edibles with revenue production for this quarter. The facility is expected to supply edibles and cannabis products to approximately 30 licensed dispensaries throughout the island.
“With the filing of our annual report and our 10-Q next week, I believe we are achieving several important milestones toward our short-term business strategy and long-term revenue model. Our uplisting to the OTCQB will enable us to raise capital favorable to both the Company and our shareholders and allow us to reach a broader range of new retail and institutional investors under our present capitalization table. The addition of a major real estate asset on our balance sheet operating as a licensed cannabis facility while increasing revenue under the terms of our agreement with our tenant and licensee clearly shows we are on a path to greater shareholder value and growth,” stated Suneil Singh Mundie, acting CEO of Agritek Holdings, Inc.
