About Protect Pharmaceutical Corp
Under the umbrella of Protect Pharmaceutical Corp. (PRTT: OTC), Agropharmacy provides sustainable products to revitalize farming soil, and produce more robust and abundant toxin-free crops in order to meet the increasing global demand for agricultural sustainability initiatives.
Aug. 03, 2020 Protect Pharmaceutical announced, “Protect Pharmaceutical’s Agropharm A Fertilizer Was Shown To Increase Crop Yields By As Much As 30%”. “This shows a very promising trend in Protect Pharmaceutical’s plans to become Europe’s leading bio-fertilizer provider” comments Angela Savcenco, Director of European Operations.
July 7, 2020 PRTT announced 2new installations in 2020. Agropharm organic fertilizer production sites will be launched in Slovenia and Spain to further develop our Agropharmacy program to increase the quality and quantity of organic food.
Savcenco commenting further said,“The two new installations will allow the company to supply demand within all boarders of the European Union. This also signals the transition from the active testing stage to active marketing. The installations in Slovenia and Spain will mean that the company should capture approximately 50 million Euro per year in new revenues once construction is completed. The company is targeting the new installations to be fully operational by the beginning of the 2021 planting."
Protect Pharmaceutical Corp and Novgorod Merger
September 15, 2020 Protect Pharmaceutical Corp announced an agreement to be acquired and merged with Novgorod which specializes in the production and sale of sugar, flour, cereals and other groceries. Actively successful in the Russian food market for over 15 years, Novgorod operates with such retail giants as AO Tander (Magnit), X5 Retail Group, OOO Lenta, AO Dixy South and others. Novgorod reported 9.7 Billion (RUB) (US $128,913,000 as of release) in revenues for 2019. Second quarter 2020 revenues were 3.7 (RUB) (US $49,173,000.00 as of release).
Under the agreed terms, Novgorod will acquire control of Protect Pharmaceutical Corp upon completion of the transition of Novgorod’s reporting to GAAP accounting standards. Protect Pharmaceutical Corp will continue to operate as a public company and the eventual resulting combined company will continue to trade under the symbol PRTT.
Protect Pharmaceutical Corp and Novgorod foresee incredible synergies from the transaction. Novgorod intends to use Protect Pharmaceutical products for its own production and Protect Pharmaceutical Corp will harness the market power of Novgorod as an incredible opportunity for expansion. “This is an amazing milestone for Protect Pharmaceutical. We have been searching for the right partner to expand and grow and in Novgorod we have found it,” states Angela Savcenco.

Market Comp PRTT Share Price When Merger is Concluded Potential PRTT share price based on current market comps of Price to Sales Ratio of 16.7 to 1 and combined 2019 sales exceeding $128,913,000 and 55 million shares outstanding is $39.14 per share.
With additional sales from the 2 new production facilities coming on line at the beginning of the 2021 planting season, sales are expected to increase by $60 million annually which could increase PRTT share price by $18.21 per share to well beyond $39.14 per share to $57.34 sometime in Q2/Q3 2022 when a full year sales is reported for the new production facilities.
The trend to lower Sales to Price Ratio for larger companies suggests that as PRTT grows, the ratio will decrease accordingly and share price expectations will be adjusted accordingly.
When the PRTT and Novgorod reverse merger is concluded as announced and when Novgorod sales are combined with PRTT, then the potential and likelihood for substantially higher PRTT share prices approaching the current market comp of 16.7 to 1 is reasonable to assume and to expect.
Fair Market Value should not be expected to be achieved immediately upon the close of the merger, but will likely take some time for investors to learn about this compelling story. The time to realize full Fair Market Value is never known exactly and can be influenced by many factors outside the world of PRTT. That time is greatly determined by visibility in the investment world or in other words by “Investor Awareness.”
