First Human Trials Raise Plandai's Profile and Valuation

BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwired - Jul 23, 2013) - Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm focused on the small cap and microcap sectors, released a research update on Plandai Biotechnology Inc.'s ( OTCQB : PLPL ). Goldman Small Cap Research believes that by engaging in the upcoming human clinical trials for its flagship product, trials, Plandai has the opportunity to be crowned the Green Tea Extract and bioavailability leader. Furthermore, Goldman notes that the likely favorable results of the trial should enable the Firm to successfully market its product to manufacturers for use in health prevention and wellness, beginning in late 2013.

The Company's upcoming study with KGK will be the first that tests the absorption properties of the Plandai green-tea based Catechin Complex in human subjects. The bioavailability study will not only test the absorption of Phytofare™ Catechin Complex, but it will compare Phytofare™ against a generic green tea extract and a branded product that touts higher bioavailability. In addition, Plandai has also contracted with KGK to simultaneously perform a human weight loss trial to test the effects of Phytofare™ Catechin Complex in inducing weight loss while also improving cholesterol and lowering blood pressure.

In the Goldman Opportunity Research update on the Company, analyst Rob Goldman outlines his investment thesis.

"We believe that the upcoming weight loss trial may be even more important than the traditional trial, given the size of the market for products used in weight loss and the fight against high blood pressure. A number of human clinical trials with green tea extract have been conducted to this end, and while data has been positive, the lack of bioavailability has halted broad use of these products for these applications. In our view, these huge milestone events raise the Company's profile and should substantially increase the Firm's valuation."
