PotNetwork Holding Executes Diversification Strategy to Expand Position into the Cannabis Sector with the Acquisition of PotNetwork.com

BUZ INVESTORS POTN High Quality Cannabis Extracts Cannabinoids and CBD Extracts continue to be a strong focal point for cannabis operators as revenues climb higher behind a robust jump in sales volume.

FOREX INVESTORS  PRESS RELEASE  PotNetwork Holding, Inc. ( OTC : POTN ), (“Company”) is very pleased to announce the reacquisition of PotNetwork.com, an online resource originally designed to become a leading industry specific news and content provider for the cannabis marketplace. After prior management changes, and a shift in corporate focus, PotNetwork.com was previously sold in March 2016.
According to Forbes Magazine, a controlling interest of High Times Magazine, an industry pioneer in the counter-culture arena, was acquired at a price that values the magazine at $70 million. PotNetwork.com is being completely renovated in preparation of creating a presence in this cannabis digital news and entertainment sector. According to the report in the NY Times, Tommy Chong stated, “It’s a sign of the times.” The comedian, who has appeared on High Times’ cover a record eight times, continued “Weed’s legal and there’s a million High Times out there.” While cannabis is medicinally legal in more than half of the states in America and recreationally legal in eight states, High Times launched when marijuana was viewed akin to heroin.

PotNetwork.com was re-acquired to be fully developed into a counter-culture, cutting-edge digital magazine, publishing up-to-date news and articles on the cannabis industry. Upon conclusion of the transaction, PotNetwork.com will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. Management has initiated plans to revamp the graphic design, diversify and enrich PotNetwork.com’s editorial content to include a full range of industry and related consumer topics. It is anticipated that such enhancements, when fortified by a targeted marketing campaign, will serve to increase web traffic and page views, ultimately monetizing the site as a comprehensive industry informational resource. Simultaneously, Management believes such actions will enhance and further cement the “PotNetwork” brand with its target audience across the industry.



PotNetwork Holding

 

Through the future implementation of streaming video broadcasting technologies, PotNetwork.com is expected to be the first of the Company’s ventures set to create an influential presence in the evolving cannabis marketplace. Management’s newly enhanced growth strategy has been structured to not only strengthen brand recognition and top-of-mind awareness, but broaden PotNetwork Holding’s interest in the industry.

“As the industry continues to expand, so does our corporate vision, and market share. In consideration of the fact that visibility and sales for Diamond CBD have experienced such outstanding results, this acquisition comes as a very exciting development. The level by which these two subsidiaries complement each other represents an excellent opportunity for expansion. We have strategized to strengthen shareholder value by streamlining operations and pursuing a singular focus,” stated Gary Blum, Chief Executive Officer, PotNetwork Holding.

Consistent with the Company’s streamlined focus on commerce within the cannabis industry, PotNetwork Holding is winding down the operations of its subsidiary, Sunrise Auto Mall, Inc., and discontinuing its operations. As a result of the exponential growth of the Company’s active subsidiary, Diamond CBD, Inc., Management has determined that resources that would have otherwise been allocated to Sunrise Auto Mall, Inc., would be much more wisely invested if redirected to fuel the strong continued growth and expansion of the Diamond CBD product line as well as the mobilization of new strategic initiatives within the cannabis Industry.

As markets continue to open and create evolving new industry demands, Management is keenly focused on developing congruent market niches that align with PotNetwork Holding’s business model. The Company will keep shareholders updated as events develop.Like up on FACEBOOK

The Trump Trade is beginning to become the Donald Downfall. What’s next?

USD: Time To Take Trump Literally? How To Position In FX?

The Trump Trade is beginning to become the Donald Downfall. What’s next?

The Trump Trade is beginning to become the Donald Downfall. What’s next?

Buz Investors the Donald Downfall Markets are gradually getting concerned that the pre-election Trump and the postelection Trump may be the same person. One by one, President Trump seems to be carrying out his pre-election promises, some of which may not necessarily be seen as market-friendly. As a result, the gradual USD sell-off has continued this week, while US equities saw a correction from an all times high and volatility has spiked from historic lows. How far (and how literally) President Trump will go to some of his most controversial pre-election promises remain to be seen.

the Donald Downfall

However, a number of forces may benefit the USD, fuelling a new rally in the next few months. We would expect a diminishing market impact from Trump headlines and tweets that are not directly market-relevant. Investors may also learn to differentiate empty from actual threats. President Trump has promised tax reform and a massive fiscal stimulus, all USD positive, promises that we would expect him to deliver, most likely as a package with the Congress approval of the debt ceiling. Paul Ryan’s plan includes a smaller fiscal stimulus, but still large, particularly for an economy already in full employment. The details of the Trump fiscal policies are also bullish for the USD, such as a new Homeland Investment Act and a Border Adjustment Tax.

Investors wanting to avoid the USD and Trump uncertainties can buy EUR/JPY. We have been long EUR/JPY in recent months. We note that the cross did well during the USD rally end-2016, but has not weakened during the USD sell-off so far this year. We expect higher inflation to increase the real rate differentials to the benefit of EUR/JPY, as the BoJ is more committed to continuing its accommodative policies than the ECB. Beyond the major G10 currencies, we still like SEK and NOK as a long-term view, but we are concerned about the market’s long positions.

Zoned Properties, Inc.

    40px) Mt(1.5em) Mb(1.5em) List(d)" data-type="list" data-reactid="7">
  • Agreed to sell its property at 422 S. Madison Dr. in Tempe, Ariz. for $2.125 million in gross proceeds. This property is leased to a non-marijuana business, and management views it as non-core to the Company’s strategy. $20,000 has been placed into escrow. The sale is expected to close in approximately 60 days, following due diligence, enabling Zoned Properties to be released from the deed of trust related to the property.
  • Received aggregate commitments for $2.020 million in financing from the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and a private investor in the form of convertible debentures bearing an annual interest rate of 6% over a 5-year term. The additional capital will directly contribute to shovel-ready development and expansion plans at the Chino Valley, Arizona cultivation facilities and Tempe, Arizona Medical Marijuana Business Park.

“As we enter 2017, we are in the strongest position in our company’s history, with a streamlined balance sheet, improving access to growth capital and a portfolio of properties well-situated to benefit from the continuing expansion of the licensed marijuana industry,” commented Bryan McLaren, Chief Executive Officer of Zoned Properties. “During 2016, we cleared the path to expand our properties in Tempe and Chino Valley, Arizona, as well as Parachute, Colorado, and we look forward to completing these expansions and securing additional tenants during 2017. We have expanded and strengthened our board of directors, and established an independent audit committee. Our sustainable approach to property development and risk mitigation is resonating with municipalities and tenants, and I am increasingly confident regarding the Company’s ability to execute its business development strategy. The financial investment made by our largest shareholder has reinforced the strong commitment our shareholders have to the Company and demonstrates the value of the progress we have made to date and our business plans and growth potential going forward.”

“We expect to utilize the proceeds from the property sale and the additional financing to retire a majority of the Company’s debt, including the deed of trust and existing convertible debt. We also plan to complete the next phases of expansion for the tenants at our key licensed marijuana properties, enabling us to generate higher rental revenue and driving sustainable property value,” added Mr. McLaren. “With additional cash on hand and an improved balance sheet we are well-positioned to selectively make additional investments to fuel our growth objectives for the upcoming year.”
