DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / September 21, 2017 / Medicine Man Technologies Inc. (MDCL), one of the United States' leading cannabis branding and consulting companies, is pleased to provide the following funding update relative to its recent regulation D filing in late August.
On or about August 29th, Medicine Man Technologies secured a $1M equity investment from a single accredited investor and is planning on securing additional investment capital as it deems wise in the very near future.
Additionally, on September 20th, Board Chairperson, Mr. Andrew Williams, and CEO, Mr. Brett Roper, also purchased shares in this offering (25,000 and 30,000, respectively), choosing to pay a modest premium to the recent price represented in the marketplace so that their investment capital goes directly to the Company rather than to buy shares in the open market. Under this subscription agreement, they are also subject to Rule 144 restrictions on selling.
Andrew Williams, Co-founder and Chairman of the Board, commented, "Medicine Man Technology is a leading cannabis consultancy and 'brand warehouse' company in the U.S., providing first class cannabis consulting and technology, nutrients, and dispensary advisory services to a growing number of innovative cannabis companies across the country. Our technology solutions optimize yields and quality of product for our clients, helping to improve business performance and ultimately maximize their profits. This capital gives us additional resources to quickly and strategically expand our solutions to capture additional market share across the emerging, legal cannabis market."
Mr. Williams continued, "When Medicine Man Technologies first started we were strictly a consulting company for new licensees in states promulgating new laws and regulations. While it was good business, there were limitations to its growth and longevity. We understood that limitation and took action to widen our customer base with Cultivation Max and added products and services, namely, Success Nutrients the Three-A-Light book, and with the Denver Consulting Group team. Our evolving business plan includes aggressive growth strategies for all our business lines, including strengthening our sales and marketing strategy. With these efforts underway, we will be continuing to work to target our next acquisition in line with our brand warehouse growth strategy."
Brett Roper added, "This is the first time since November of 2014 we have raised equity capital and I feel we are entering into this new growth mode with a very clear understanding of purpose. At this time, our use of funds plan is related to expansion of our existing product and service offerings as well as repayment of our remaining convertible debt incurred in October of 2016. I believe we will be able to complete our planned capital raise in the next few months noting these shares are priced at $1.0665 per share and include a warrant (one per share purchased) priced at $1.333 per share."
