SUGARMADE, INC. (OTCMKTS:SGMD) Files An 8-K Regulation FD Disclosure
Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure
Sugarmade Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) makes the following disclosures to Section 13 or 15(d) of The Securities Exchange Act of 1934, generally referred to as Regulation FD Disclosure.
On January 23, 2019 Sugarmade, Inc. (the “Company”) announced the signing of a Letter of Intent (the “LOI”) to acquire a retail location of Washington State-based Hydro4Less. The LOI outlines the general terms of a possible acquisition transaction. Pending the signing of a definitive agreement, Sugarmade will issue Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000) of its common shares at a price pegged at Ten Cents ($0.10) to the owners of Hydro4Less in exchange for the single retail operation, not including inventories on hand.
Additionally, via the pending transaction, Sugarmade will gain an option, at an acquisition price to be determined later, to purchase two additional Hydro4Less retail operations, which are currently producing in excess of Twenty Million Dollars ($20,000,000) annually. The single location acquisition that is the subject of the LOI, is expected to produce approximately Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000) for calendar year 2019 and is currently operating at a profit with positive operating cash flow. The Company believes the single location the acquisition would be accretive to earning for Sugarmade. Should all three acquisitions close, Sugarmade will increase its annual revenues by approximately Twenty Five Million Dollars ($25,000,000) million per year.
Hydro4Less is significant supplier to the growing hydroponic cultivation sector. Neither the Company nor Hydro4Less conduct any business involving the sale of any cannabis product or relating to any products containing cannabis.
While both the Company and Hydro4Less believe the signing of a definitive agreement and ultimate acquisition as is outlined in the LOI is likely, there can be no assurance that such a transaction, or any other transaction, will occur between the companies.
