BUZ INVESTORS  PRESS RELEASE  Cryptobuyer Emerges as a Leader  Cryptobuyer, a leading cryptocurrency and digital assets company in the Latin America has gained the distinction of being the first company ever to install Bitcoin ATMs (BTMs) in a commercial bank after two of its BTMs found a place in the premises of Banistmo Bank’s headquarters. The installation of BTMs followed the recently concluded Panamanian Association of Fintech event. Cryptobuyer was one of the participants at the second edition of the event which was hosted by the second largest bank in Panama, Banistmo. The event witnessed widespread participation from the members of banking and finance community and the general public.

The CEO, Jorge Luis Farias was part of a panel of experts discussing the scope and applications of blockchain technology at the event. The panel discussion garnered the attention of over 300 participants from various industry sectors. The participation of Cryptobuyer in the Panamanian Association of Fintech event coincided with a recent report on Bloomberg covering the company and its use of blockchain technology to solve real world problems in the lives of people in emerging countries like Venezuela – a nation that is currently affected by hyperinflation and capital controls.




 Cryptobuyer Emerges as a Leader

Farias, along with the CEO of Tigo CTM Cindy Zimmerman and the founder of Guldcoin Ira Miller, both technology partners of Cryptobuyer showcased the two BTMs installed within the bank. These state-of-the-art machines supporting both Bitcoin and DASH were well received as many people in attendance lined up to test the equipment. The company plans to install more than 20 of these Bitcoin ATMs across Panama and rest of South America as the first phase of its effort to create a cryptocurrency ATM network in the region.

The Global Business Developer at DASH, Daniel Diaz also took part in the panel and spoke about the advantages of DASH as one of the most promising cryptocurrencies. Cryptobuyer, recognizing the cryptocurrency’s potential announced support for DASH during the same event. Other prominent members in attendance at the event included Yari Romero, the CIO of CBChains.com – a venture capital, startup, and blockchain consulting firm, Alejandro de la Torre from BTC.com, Felipe Echandi Founder of Quanto mobile digital payments application and PanaFintech, Alejandro Palomar of Blockchain 360 Solutions and KPMG’s Glenn Tjon.

BTC.com’s Alejandro de la Torre, who came all the way from Amsterdam demonstrated the use of Bitcoin wallet and gave away over 100 gift codes, to be redeemed on BTC.com wallet for Bitcoin. Similarly, Palomar enlightened the audience about Blockchain technology while Tjon touched upon the impact of distributed ledger technology on global organizations.

After the panel discussion, Cryptobuyer announced its entry into the Ciudad del Saber (City of Knowledge) technology and innovation campus to set up base alongside 180 world-class companies and organizations including the likes of the United Nations, Copa Airlines, IESA and Hewlett-Packard. Cryptobuyer while setting up its headquarters in the technology hub will also develop Blockchain Academy Latam to impart cryptocurrency related education, training, and certifications to individuals, companies and organizations from Latin America and rest of the world.

And finally, the big news. The company also announced its plans for an ICO in the coming weeks as the company looks forward to expanding its business model and operations with a soon-to-be-launched product. More details about the ICO and the new product launch will be announced soon.

Target Reports Second Quarter 2016 Earnings

BUZ INVESTORS  urban expansion  The Lower East Side is about to get its first Target (NYSE:TGT).

The retailer has signed a lease to open a 22,500 square-foot store at the 1.9M-square-foot development stretching across several Manhattan blocks called Essex Crossing.

Target, which had 32 small format locations at the end of 2016, expects to have more than 130 in cities and dense areas by the end of 2019.

A Target spokesperson told the Wall Street Journal that the big box retailer “sees tremendous potential” in the New York City market. Full-size Target stores are often well over 100,000 square feet. The small format concept (ranging from 12,000-60,000 sf) had 32 locations at the end of 2016, the Journal reported. A rapid expansion of the smaller stores is planned during the next couple of years.

The Lower East Side Target store will be taking the place of Planet Fitness, which backed out of Essex Crossing after announcing in the fall of 2015 it would be coming to the 1.9 million square foot complex.

BUZ INVESTORS CanniMed Cannabis Oils Facility Expansion CanniMed Therapeutics Inc. (TSX: CMED) (“CanniMed” or the “Company”) announced today that its directors have approved

BUZ INVESTORS  CanniMed Cannabis Oils Facility Expansion CanniMed Therapeutics Inc. (TSX: CMED) (“CanniMed” or the “Company”) announced today that its directors have approved the commencement of a capital project to increase its current cannabinoid oils processing capacity by constructing a new facility on the Company’s Saskatchewan campus.

The planned Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)-compliant ethanol extraction facility will have the initial capacity to supply the equivalent of 12 million 60 ml bottles of CanniMed® Oil per year, once complete. The initial cost estimate for the facility is $10.5 million over a twenty-month schedule to commissioning.

“Saskatchewan’s heritage of pioneering and innovation in Canadian healthcare has helped lead to the creation of cornerstones such as the advent of cobalt therapy in cancer treatment,” said Premier Brad Wall.  “CanniMed is now part of the ongoing legacy that embodies this spirit of creative thinking and diversification so inherent in our province.  We welcome this kind of significant investment in Saskatchewan.”



 CanniMed Cannabis Oils Facility Expansion 

The project is estimated to employ 85 full-time employees during the construction phase and will create 25 new permanent full-time positions. Scheduling and costs will be further refined during the detailed design phase of the project. The facility has been designed to accommodate further modular increases in capacity in up to three subsequent phases, ensuring product development milestones will continue to be met over the long-term.

“The Company’s greatest growth driver is currently our CanniMed® Oils products, contributing to 46% of our overall sales during March 2017,” said Brent Zettl, President and CEO of CanniMed Therapeutics Inc. “The expansion of our oils processing capacity will ensure ample supply of cannabinoid-based raw materials for future product development and innovation, in addition to providing for the continued growth of currently marketed oil products, and our soon-to-be released gelcaps.”

CanniMed uses ethanol (food-grade alcohol) extraction for the purification of cannabinoids. This industry-leading process pumps ethanol through compressed cannabis flower material, extracting the THCA (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabiolic acid), CBDA (cannabidiolic acid) and other medicinal ingredients. The alcohol and excess water are then removed through evaporation, resulting in a pure cannabis resin that can be further developed into a number of products for patient consumption. The Company plans to recycle and reuse the ethanol employed in the process.

About CanniMed Therapeutics Inc.

The Company is a Canadian-based, international plant biopharmaceutical company and a leader in the Canadian medical cannabis industry, with 15 years of pharmaceutical cannabis cultivation experience, state-of-the-art, GMP-compliant production process and world class research and development platforms with a wide range of pharmaceutical-grade cannabis products. In addition, the Company has an active plant biotechnology research and product development program focused on the production of plant-based materials for pharmaceutical, agricultural and environmental applications.

CanniMed Ltd., through its subsidiaries, was the first producer to be licensed under the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations, the predecessor to the current Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations. It was the sole supplier to Health Canada under the former medical marijuana system for 13 years, and has been producing safe and consistent medical marijuana for thousands of Canadian patients, with no incident of product diversion or recalls.

2017 Outlook: Will Policy Changes Extend the Expansion?

2017 Outlook: Will Policy Changes Extend the Expansion?

2017 Outlook Despite a strong year-end performance by the stock market and a post-election jump in confidence among consumers and businesses, limited information on the new Administration’s potential economic policies led to a conservative 2017 growth projection of 2.0 percent, according to the Fannie Mae Economic & Strategic Research (ESR) Group’s January 2017 Economic and Housing Outlook. Improved consumer spending in the third quarter drove a slight upward revision from the prior forecast; moreover, a friendly labor market and rising household wealth should continue to support consumers. Business fixed investment is expected to pick up – particularly in the equipment space – as the drag from declining oil prices faded and should add to 2017 growth. Additionally, government spending and inventory investment are expected to add to growth this year, while the dollar should continue to weigh heavily on net exports. Mortgage rates are predicted to rise gradually in the coming year, ultimately reaching a fourth quarter average of 4.3 percent. There is risk that rates could rise faster and higher than forecasted, but the impact on housing could be offset by strengthened income growth.

2017 Outlook

 

“Policy changes under the new Administration – in its nature, sequencing, and magnitude – will determine the direction of economic growth in 2017,” said Fannie Mae Chief Economist Doug Duncan. “Incoming data suggest improving consumer spending, diminished labor market slack, and advancements in wages, but until we can more clearly read the political tea leaves, it’s difficult to say whether this late-cycle expansion will continue into its eighth year. Thus our theme for the year: Will Policy Changes Extend the Expansion? If stimulus policy is enacted, it would likely add to growth but could also be offset by potential tightened trade policy given the already historically strong dollar.”

“We expect housing to remain resilient and continue its recovery in 2017, with affordability standing out as the industry’s greatest obstacle, particularly for first-time homeowners,” added Duncan. “Demographic factors, however, are positive. Our research shows that older Millennials have begun to buy homes and close the homeownership attainment gap with their predecessors.”
