MariMed, Inc. Seeking New Independent Director Candidate

NORWOOD, MA, June 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MariMed Inc. (MRMD), a leading multi-state cannabis operator focused on health and wellness, today released the following statement from management regarding recent stock volatility and a recent change to its Board of Directors:

MariMed Inc. continues to experience the positive fundamental trends in its operating results as reported over the last several quarters, driven by executing its strategic plan for expansion on many fronts in both the cannabis and hemp-based CBD markets. Management was concerned last week that the share price volatility appeared to coincide with the recent resignation of a member of its Board of Directors, as outlined in a recent Form 8K filing. This former director had no involvement in the day to day management or operations of the Company and his departure had been anticipated for some time. The Company is actively looking to replace him and has identified several qualified candidates.

Mr. Bob Fireman, CEO, stated: “The Company continues to execute on its strategic plan for consolidation and growth of its revenue and assets. It is important that the Company continues to seek additional outside independent directors with hands on expertise and experience germane to our industry and the dynamic growth our company continues to experience.”
