Jolly asked about the next steps for the Company. Blackmon stated that multiple states are getting ready to begin hemp programs, and that their plan is place industrial hemp testing plants where there is the most demand for them. Blackmon also updated listeners on their patent infringement case and shared that he anticipates having a strong patent portfolio once the process is complete.

Blackmon then discussed his outlook toward acquisitions in the future and stated that for the most part they are looking to expand what they currently have. However, they would entertain any acquisition that brought value to the Company.
Blackmon closed the interview by encouraging listeners not to be discouraged with the Company’s lower volume in the past and expressed his excitement for upcoming revenue and growth in 2019.
