NEW YORK – GenTech Holdings, Inc. (OTCMKTS: GTEH) (“GenTech” or the “Company”), an emerging leader in the high-end CBD food and drinks marketplace, is excited to announce the issuance of a Letter of Intent (“LOI”) to acquire a leading California-based CBD ecommerce retailer (the “Target”) in an all-stock transaction with a working capital stipulation to provide for an aggressive growth agenda. The Target is an already-profitable premium CBD distributor focused on the CBD Coffee and Tea Market.
The Company believes the acquisition will powerfully compliment its brick-and-mortar CBD-infusion Café model, giving it a widened exposure footprint to the rapidly growing CBD market. GenTech is slated to open its first CBD-infusion Café in Q1 2020.
“This is a perfect way to augment our physical CBD Café model,” stated David Lovatt, GenTech CEO. “We anticipate multiple lines of synergy following a prospective acquisition. This should be a win-win for both parties and expand our reach immediately.”
Management notes that a driving factor in motivating this acquisition is the preponderance of data suggesting that growth estimates for the overall CBD market are in the process of being revised sharply higher as mainstream consumer adoption dramatically outperforms prior baseline expectations for 2019.
Highlighting this dynamic in its most recent research report on the CBD market space, Brightfield Group, a leading market and consumer intelligence firm for the legal CBD and cannabis industries, reported significant expected acceleration in growth for the CBD market, resulting in a 706% year-over-year CBD product sales jump in the US in 2019 to around $5 billion in total sales, with sales expected to reach $23.7 billion by 2023. This suggests the overall CBD-based products market is set to grow by a stunning 107% CAGR over coming years.
Mr. Lovatt continued, “Completely apart from operational synergies, the investment in horizontal expansion in the CBD market is clearly warranted given current industry trends and forecasted growth over the coming 2-5 year time horizon. This deal makes sense from every angle and should drive a great deal of shareholder value.”
