International Land Alliance Announces Strategic Financing

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, Nov. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- International Land Alliance, Inc. (ILAL) today announced it has closed on a preferred stock placement for $500,000 with CleanSpark, Inc. (CLSK). This strategic investment includes a 10-year exclusive agreement that calls for CleanSpark to provide its microgrid Value Stream Optimizer (mVSO) software services to support system design and engineering as well as integrating CleanSpark’s mPULSE software into the final systems on all future energy projects across the ILAL portfolio of properties.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds from this preferred stock placement for two initial energy projects and the construction of two model homes at its new Costa Bajamar Oasis development, as well as sales and marketing. Site preparation began last week at Costa Bajamar and upon completion will be comprised of 34 units on approximately one acre. Costa Bajamar is located at the Bajamar Ocean Front Golf Resort, a master planned golf community located 45 minutes south of the San Diego-Tijuana Border along the scenic toll road to Ensenada.

Zach Bradford, CleanSpark’s CEO stated, “We are very pleased and excited to be working with ILAL to exclusively provide our software products and services for all energy projects across ILAL’s entire portfolio of properties. Having demonstrated our capability of providing islanded power for large-scale critical military installations, we now can deploy these same technologies across a broad spectrum of commercial, residential, agricultural and vacation properties of all sizes and complexities. This is a game changer for us and gives CleanSpark a significant pipeline of new business opportunities.”

Jason Sunstein, ILAL’s Vice President commented, “Power solutions and planning are critical aspects of every residential and commercial development. Using CleanSpark’s software solutions ensures our property owners are provided with a secure and optimized power solution. There are numerous development opportunities in Mexico that are saddled with no-grid or bad-grid conditions and the progress in microgrid solutions is opening new opportunities for us and for our home buyers. We have chosen CleanSpark as we believe they not only have the best technology solution available, but is also highly compatible with our financing targets and generates returns for our investors and partners. Our development strategy includes the emerging property technology (PropTech) landscape and working together with CleanSpark will help us reach our objectives.”

Mr. Sunstein further commented, “With the deregulation of energy in Mexico, there is a significant market opportunity for the formation of small-scale utility projects and this partnership should create additional revenue streams for both companies. Additionally, by embracing this technology we expect to drive increased efficiencies and provide sustainable solutions for our customers across all of our developments.”
