NUGL Inc. (NUGL) to Purchase Professional Magazine Brand ‘Nichols Publishing Company’

  • NUGL will soon be finalizing the acquisition of specialized magazine company Nichols Publishing
  • Through the deal, NUGL will gain access to the publishing company’s well-established audience of both cannabis professionals and enthusiasts
  • The publisher’s purchase is just a first step in NUGL’s planned strategic expansion

NUGL Inc. (OTC: NUGL) is working toward the expansion of its business model through the purchase of Nichols Publishing Company – a well-known brand that has been issuing specialized magazines like Professional Marijuana Grower and Garden & Greenhouse for over a decade.

On October 15, 2018, NUGL announced that it has entered into a binding letter of intent for the purchase of the publisher. The acquisition will occur after a 30-day exclusive due diligence period and the execution of a definitive agreement, according to a company press release (http://ibn.fm/RBmHu).

NUGL will acquire 100 percent of Nichols Publishing in exchange for $1 million of the company’s common stock. Upon finalization of the acquisition, all publication activities will occur under the NUGL brand umbrella.

NUGL, a company setting a new standard of technology in the cannabis industry, will benefit from the industry-specific magazine audience that Nichols Publishing Company has established through the years. Professional Marijuana Grower targets professionals in the field, while Grower & Greenhouse addresses the needs of the home enthusiast. Both of these audiences already form an important part of the NUGL community.

Professional Marijuana Grower releases six issues per year, and the magazines are distributed among cannabis growing facilities, dispensaries and other industry representatives. A digital version of each issue is also posted online upon release. The total distribution and the online reach enable the magazine to generate an audience of 23,000 people per issue.

Garden & Greenhouse is mailed directly to subscribers, with a digital version also available online. The publication’s website averages over 30,000 visitors per month, and the total number of subscribers (plus the online audience) exceeds 41,000 people per issue.

The reach of the Nichols publications can be used to spread news about the NUGL technology and its importance for the innovative development of the cannabis industry.

NUGL Vice President of Sales Bob Waters said in a news release that the company’s customers currently utilize the services provided by the company, after which they leave. The magazines provide an opportunity to deliver high quality content to this audience for the purpose of growing engagement. According to Waters, NUGL intends to further grow the Nichols audience and expand the reach of the magazines.

The NUGL press release suggests that the acquisition of Nichols Publishing is just a first step in a strategic expansion process. The company has worked hard this year to update its Android and Apple apps and add new functionalities.

NUGL is the first cannabis search engine in the world aimed at enabling the most user-friendly experience in the respective industry. The app strives to provide unbiased and relevant search results, which is why paid-for listings are not featured.

Currently, NUGL can be used to search for strains, dispensaries, doctors, lawyers and various cannabis service providers (hydro stores, vape shops, etc.). Since there are no geographic limitations, NUGL can quickly connect cannabis companies and users interested in their services.

The NUGL brand-to-shop connection is a unique characteristic that enables the verification of cannabis brand retailers that are closest to the respective customer.

Tech Innovator Net Element, Inc. (NASDAQ: NETE) Partners with VIP Systems to Deliver Hospitality Industry Payment Solution

  • Tourism and travel industry revenues expected to reach $1.3 trillion by 2025
  • Partnership’s VIP Payments solution adaptable to popular hotel, travel industry software to enable card-present and mobile-enabled payments
  • Payment solution also designed to handle multiple currencies in booming era of tourist travel

Net Element, Inc. (NASDAQ: NETE) has taken a significant step in adapting its payment processing technology to the specific challenges of the tourism and hospitality industry through its recently announced partnership with VIP Systems, an advanced technology integrator already working in the hospitality industry space (http://ibn.fm/ieFgf).

“VIP Systems is a leading technology integrator with vast experience deploying complex point of sale solutions for some of the biggest brands in the travel and hospitality industry; adding payments to its offerings will create new revenues for VIP Systems and enable us to create more guest-centric value-added offerings,” Vlad Sadovskiy, Net Element’s president of integrated payments, stated in the announcement of the venture.

“This partnership brings together technology and value-added offerings that are set to streamline processes and create additional revenue for our clients at the point of sale,” VIP Systems Executive Vice President Edward Genin added. “Since inception, VIP Systems has been committed to providing its clients with the best quality integration services. The partnership with Net Element is another example of our commitment to this mission.”

VIP Systems is a preferred provider of tech solutions for well-known brands such as Marriott International, Choice Hotels International, Simon Property Group, Hotwire Communications, Morgans Hotel Group, InterContinental Hotels Group and Related Group.

Net Element operates a payments-as-a-service transactional model and a platform for value-added services that benefit small- to medium-sized businesses in the United States and select emerging markets. Internationally, the company’s strategy is to leverage its omni-channel platform to provide flexibility where diverse banking, regulatory and demographic conditions exist.

The partnership’s product is named the VIP Payments solution, designed as tech that works seamlessly with computerized Property Management Systems (PMS) utilized by businesses, particularly hotels, to govern property, personnel and legal operations through a single software system. It manages online and mobile payments compatibly with leading global distribution systems (GDS) utilized by travel industry service providers to manage real-time vacancies in rooms, etc., including the Amadeus and Sabre brands.

VIP Payments is designed to provide businesses with financial transaction security, as it simultaneously offers consumers the payment flexibility that is essential to modern society’s penchant for personal preference by accepting an array of mobile, multi-channel and multi-currency payment platforms. The technology can work with smart point-of-sale devices for card-present transactions, as well as online and mobile transactions in multiple currencies.

It also has customer loyalty modules that promote additional services and generate new revenue sources, provides same-day settlements and delivers online reporting.

The travel and tourism industry has enjoyed a recent boom, in part because of a wanderlust indulged by the millennials who have comprised a significant source of revenue in the industry during recent years. The 2018 travel and hospitality industry outlook report published by Deloitte predicts that the industry’s revenues will top $500 billion this year, and market analyst Research Nester, predicting a CAGR of 4.7 percent from $814 billion in 2014, anticipates industry investments swelling to $1.3 trillion by 2025 (http://ibn.fm/Bgmi3).

ChineseInvestors.com, Inc.’s (CIIX) CBD Biotechnology Co. Ltd. Developed its CBD Hemp-Infused Rice Wine with ‘Hemp Enthusiasts’ in Mind

  • CIIX’s wholly owned foreign enterprise, CBD Biotechnology Co. Ltd., focuses on benefits of new wine; it has attributed sales gains to hemp oil and alcoholic beverages
  • Life longevity is key issue in its marketing strategy; rice wine is a diet staple in town of Bama, China, which has one of the highest ratios in the world of centenarians-to-general population
  • Warren Wang, CEO of CIIX, noted in a news release that the company had significant growth in its latest fiscal year, largely due to surging hemp oil and alcoholic beverage product sales

ChineseInvestors.com, Inc.’s (OTCQB: CIIX) CBD Biotechnology Co. Ltd., a wholly owned foreign enterprise, plans to market its private brand CBD hemp-infused rice wine in December, focusing on ‘hemp enthusiasts’ and the benefits of the product. Rice wine may be one important factor in the extreme longevity realized in the Chinese town of Bama in Guangxi Province. It is known as the ‘longevity town of China’ and boasts one of the highest ratios of centenarians globally: 73 out of a population of just over 300,000 (http://ibn.fm/dXNsD).

Summer Yun, CEO of CBD Biotech, noted in a recent news release that the company recorded its highest single-day sales of alcoholic beverage products during the 10-day period from September 1-11, 2018. Yun anticipates that the addition of CBD Hemp Wine, scheduled to debut in December 2018, will drive sustained improvement to existing sales performance.

Commenting on company revenue gains in hemp oil and alcoholic beverages, Wang of CIIX said, “Given the trends and the current demands we are seeing in the marketplace, we believe this is a significant opportunity. Moving forward, CBD Biotech plans to explore a variety of hemp products, in addition to its skin-care and alcoholic beverage products.”

The announcement comes after CIIX had reported a 41 percent jump in its sales for FY2018 ended May 31, 2018, as compared to the prior year. CIIX previously detailed plans to spin off its CBD division in the future, including CBD Biotech, Hemp Logic, Inc. and ChineseHempOil.com, Inc. (http://ibn.fm/nwwAc).

CIIX has an international Chinese-speaking audience and generates core revenue from subscriptions and consulting. Its online site, NewCoins168.com, indicates that CIIX expects to issue its own ICO in the second half of 2018 or in 2019 as part of an initiative to create a virtual investment ‘ecosystem’ for its Chinese viewers (http://ibn.fm/3BE7f).

Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (NUGS) Taking It to the Next Level with New Hire as Cannabis Job Market Expands

  • Appointment of new board member with expertise in finance
  • Company is preparing to uplist to a national exchange
  • BudHire subsidiary to offer staffing services to cannabis industry
  • Retail initiatives continue under “Pure Organix” brand

The appointment of Alan Tran to the board of directors of Cannabis Strategic Ventures, Inc. (OTC: NUGS) augurs well for the company’s fortunes, because it is an action that’s likely to be replicated across the cannabis industry. A report in Forbes (http://ibn.fm/TMLbP) titled ‘Marijuana is the Fastest-Growing Job Category, Top Recruiting CEO Says’ shows that those forces are already in play. Now that 31 states and Washington, DC have legalized medical marijuana and 10 of those jurisdictions have done the same with recreational cannabis, “there’s 445 percent growth in job listings… year over year.”  Cannabis Strategic Ventures aims to capitalize on that trend. Earlier this year, the company completed a definitive agreement to acquire Worldwide Staffing Group, Inc., which, in 2017, booked approximately $1.5 million in revenues. Its hire of Tran is the first in a series of steps to be taken as it prepares to uplist its common shares to a national exchange.

Cannabis Strategic Ventures anticipates that the proposed uplisting will provide readier access to capital. Undoubtedly, it will increase the market and liquidity of the company’s securities. In preparation for the uplisting, the company finalized the audit of its fiscal year ended March 31, 2018, marking the completion of the last of three audits required by the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission as a condition of becoming a fully reporting company. Tran’s expertise in finance and strategy is expected to play a crucial role as the company takes its operations to the next level (http://ibn.fm/rI7nL).

The legal cannabis industry is projected to reach over $24 billion by 2021, growth that will only be possible if staffing requirements are satisfied. As the industry matures, a variety of supporting services will be needed, creating thousands of jobs. Some of those, like bud trimmers, bud tenders and customer service reps, will “touch” the plant, but many others, including those in fields such as accounting, marketing and legal, will not. The company’s acquisition of Worldwide Staffing positions it to leverage the latter’s expertise in general clerical, administrative, marketing, accounting and other verticals (http://ibn.fm/5FnLL). However, Worldwide Staffing will be operated as an independent subsidiary, providing strictly non-cannabis-related employment and staffing services.

Staffing services for the cannabis industry will fall under the aegis of another subsidiary, BudHire, an outsourced employment service specifically designed to meet the growing needs of cannabis-related business operations. BudHire will utilize a proven recruiting formula to match the most qualified candidates to a broad spectrum of cannabis-related jobs. The division will offer both temporary and permanent staffing solutions, as well as professional employment organization services and human resources consulting to the cannabis industry.

In addition, Cannabis Strategic Ventures is continuing its retail initiatives. In July, it signed an agreement with Sunniva Inc. (CSE: SNN) (OTCQX: SNNVF), under which a Sunniva subsidiary, CP Logistics, LLC (CPL), will provide cannabis concentrate extraction services to Pure Applied Sciences, Inc. (PAS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Cannabis Strategic Ventures. CPL will perform white label services, producing high quality, ultra-purified cannabis extracts out of its Sun-Oil Facility in Cathedral City, California, for PAS under the “Pure Organix” brand name, a brand recently acquired by Cannabis Strategic Ventures. The agreement is for a 12-month term and may be renewed for an additional 12 months at the request of PAS at the expiry of the initial term (http://ibn.fm/kIkfB).
