Plandai Biotechnology, Inc. Releases Shareholder Newsletter With Accompanying Video

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - May 20, 2014) -  Plandaí Biotechnology, Inc. ( OTCQB : PLPL ), a producer of highly bioavailable plant extracts for industries including health, wellness, nutraceutical, and pharmaceutical, today released a shareholder newsletter, which addresses several topics including a "State of the Company" article by the company's Chief Executive Officer that addresses recent milestones and discusses what shareholders can expect in the coming months. Additional articles detail the company's involvement in the cannabis industry -- setting the record straight with respect to current research and future production, the need for the various government agencies to establish "standards" for the cannabis industry, and the company's steps to operate with a zero carbon footprint.

Simultaneously, the company released a video that includes never-before-seen footage of the Senteeko tea estate and factory in South Africa, which also provides a graphical presentation on the company's science and competitive advantages. Shareholders and others interested in obtaining the newsletter and previewing the video, but have not previously signed up, can access both at the company's website: www.plandaibiotech.com.

Roger Duffield, Chief Executive Officer of Plandaí, commented, "Effective shareholder communications are an important part of our responsibility to everyone that has believed in what we're doing as a company. I've requested that our marketing department commence putting out a quarterly newsletter enabling us to address topics that are of interest to shareholders, but that aren't necessarily suitable for a press release. This edition speaks to the recent fluctuations in stock price while also providing updates on our current operations and strategy through the end of the year. We're also excited to share our new video with people interested in gaining additional insight into Plandaí. We recognize that the science part of what we do is complex and that having our operations overseas makes it challenging for many of our shareholders to both understand what we do and also see the progress. We hope that the newsletter and video, combined with a series of management interviews planned for later this summer, will help everyone feel more connected with Plandaí and help them follow along as we commence full-scale operations."
