Sugarmade Announces Corporate Strategy in Preparation for Uplist to Major US Exchange
GlobeNewswire GlobeNewswireNovember 18, 2019
NEW YORK, Nov. 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NetworkWire – Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD) (“Sugarmade”, “SGMD”, or the “Company”), a major supplier to the hydroponic cultivation and hemp sectors, is pleased to provide a strategic update as the Company advances plans to uplist to a major US exchange while moving toward another targeted acquisition. Based on the strategy the Company has laid out, management believes Sugarmade will be on track to reach excess of $65 million annualized revenues.
“We have an ambitious plan to create a viable path toward another major acquisition while extending our stepwise climb onto a major US exchange listing as we continue to expand operations in a rapidly growing market,” stated Jimmy Chan, CEO of Sugarmade. “The key steps that will facilitate this evolutionary process are a 14C filing and leveraging our superior market positioning in current and forthcoming negotiations, both of which are readily accessible and attainable ideas.”
Management notes that, in accordance with these plans, the Company has submitted a Schedule 14C Filing for a reverse split of its equity to establish SGMD stock above $4/share. Along with its aggressive organic expansion and recent M&A activity, this combination should qualify the Company for a Nasdaq listing.
Following its acquisition of BZRTH, Inc. (“BZRTH”) last month, the Company is continuing to aggressively roll-up a dominant position in the $24 billion hydroponics space. Sugarmade is currently engaged in negotiations involving another major acquisition. The Company will update shareholders and interested potential investors as events transpire.
Mr. Chan continued, “We understand that reverse stock splits are usually viewed negatively because they generally happen in response to serious problems with a publicly traded company. But they can also be part of a strategic plan that is tethered to strong future growth and expanding shareholder value. In this case, we are dealing with the latter case. The move will enable Sugarmade to generate immense amount of new shareholder value through both expanded operations and better terms in accessing new investment markets.”
