Goldman Small Cap Research Issues Research Report on Plandai Biotechnology Inc.

BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwired - May 29, 2013) - Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm focused on the small cap and microcap sectors, has initiated research coverage of Plandai Biotechnology, Inc. (OTCQB: PLPL), a developer of highly bioavailable, phytonutrient rich extracts, which are being utilized to deliver a new family of drugs to safely and affordably treat a multitude of diseases and conditions.

Leveraging its highly bioavailable plant extracts and its proprietary extraction processes, Plandai is poised to transform how many diseases and conditions are treated, including malaria, cardiovascular health, weight management, etc. According to published USDA studies, the Plandai product has demonstrated to have improved bioavailability over other products far exceeding anything currently available today. This means that the rate to which an active ingredient can be absorbed by the body's tissues is very high.

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

"Based on recent test results, Plandai has made great strides toward treating and preventing malaria, which in 2010 caused an estimated 216 million clinical episodes, 655,000 deaths and had an estimated $12 billion in direct treatment costs. Given the potentially low-cost and highly efficacious malaria treatment under development, Plandai's Phytofare™ Catechin Extract could become a de facto standard in Africa, which accounted for 91% of all malaria-related deaths. Plus, due to the Company's highly bioavailable plant extracts, Plandai could enjoy strong sales across the globe in the nutraceutical industry as a means to improve health and wellness. In order to generate an equivalent health benefit to Phytofare™, consumers would have to purchase and consume anywhere from 6-8 times as much of competing products."
