Company shares its strategy to balance out its market value and plans to capitalize on international cannabis markets and pathway to a national stock exchange listing
LAS VEGAS, NV (July 30th, 2019) Player’s Network, Inc. (OTCQB: PNTV), a rapidly growing company in the adult-use and medical marijuana industry focused on international and domestic growth, with operations in Las Vegas, Nevada and Jujuy Argentina, announced today it has created a private subsidiary GLFI, Inc. and is positioning itself to meet the qualifications for a future NASDAQ exchange listing.
The company previously announced that it planned a name and symbol change to GLFI, but due to re-evaluating the company’s growth strategy, which has been limited to reaching its true market potential, the company opted to form an operating subsidiary with that name. These limitations have been mainly due to being both a small cap and cannabis stock in a volatile market and that has restricted the company from generating the necessary institutional capital to fully monetize the company’s potential.
Public companies that operate US-based cannabis businesses where they have direct contact with the plant have a difficult time with banking services and capital raising, as a result of unsettled area of the law in cannabis. This restricts the vast majority of institutional investors, brokerage houses and most hedge funds and family offices from taking investments into such companies. To overcome this hurdle, the company plans to keep all its US operations in PNTV and conduct its International business through the new company, GLFI, Inc. by way of a Teaming Agreement with PNTV.
The Teaming Agreement will include an allocation to develop 400 acres of cannabis (initial focus on CBD) crops in Jujuy, Argentina, where the company has signed an agreement with the government to develop portions of a 33,600 acer farm. The 400 acres allocated in the agreement is only a small portion of the total land PNTV has access to with the option to conduct other work on the remaining acreage under the Teaming Agreement.
The basic deal structure is as follows, PNTV will be assigning the legal rights under its government joint venture agreement and infrastructure built to date which includes land preparation, security systems, 46,000 sq. ft. of greenhouses, genetics, and more. GLFI will be providing the capital to continue building out the project and take the cannabis commodities (isolate and distillate) finished products to the International markets.
GLFI will be majority-owned by PNTV and new investors who will be offered an opportunity to purchase units of the venture. PNTV designed this strategy to raise capital without experiencing significant dilution for its existing shareholders as well as diversification of its holdings which is expected to more than double the current asset value of the company. The details of the Teaming Agreement and the details of the offering will be released soon.
PNTV CEO Mark Bradley states; “this structure will provide substantial benefits to PNTV shareholders by adding GLFI as a secondary market vehicle that has been structured to have only a small amount of shares with a large stated market value designed to attract institutional and high net worth accredited investors, most who are prohibited from investing in the small-cap cannabis markets.” Mr. Bradley adds, “This is a win-win structure that once our shareholders truly understand our approach will bring considerable growth and value to both PNTV and GLFI.
