Press Release: Forward Into Fall – Black Girl Nerds

By on Nov 16, 2017 in Press Release | 0 comments

Share this post! After only five years, Forward Comix just might be on the verge of a breakthrough. During the 2016-2017 season, Forward Comix got the attention of critics and award organizations across the spectrum, including: Glyph Comics Awards, Imagine FX Magazine, Communication Arts, Society of Illustrators, and the Independent Publisher Book Awards. This was in addition to press appearances on CBR (Comic Book Resources), and in ImagineFX Magazine. “We have an opportunity to develop Forward Comix far beyond being simply a self-publisher,” founder Jerome Walford states. This is where the Forward into fall campaign and a new Kickstarter effort comes in. With the boost from a Kickstarter campaign, Forward Comix intends to publish four fully realized projects by the end of 2018. The Novel: Revolting The first project in the campaign is familiar to fans of Forward Comix. “Revolting” is the second literary YA novel set in the “Curse of the Griffin” realm. The epic tale follows Daniel Griffin, the lost heir to a fallen mystical kingdom, his friends, and frienemies – all now desperate refugees attempting to escape a vengeful vampire and his blood-thirsty army. “Revolting” promises immense fantasy world building, and is set for release in early 2018.   The Graphic Novel: Nowhere Man, Volume Three The centerpiece of the campaign will be Forward Comix’s signature title, “Nowhere Man”. Nominated for three Glyph Comics Awards, and winner of the Glyph Comics Award for Best Male Character, 2014, “Nowhere Man” is a graphic novel mini-series that follows detective Jack Maguire. Volume three promises to be 80+ pages with key events in Jack’s journey, and Rose Yancey, too, even as Jack and Rose now find themselves on opposite sides. The YA Graphic Novel: Moon’s Ostrich The third project is the highly anticipated full-length graphic novel, “Moon’s Ostrich.” First published as a pilot issue a few years ago, the perky young character quickly gained a spot in the heart of many, including a win in the Society of Illustrators’ Third Annual Comic and Comic Art competition. “Moon’s Ostrich” will be a graphic novel for intermediate grades set in the steampunk genre. It follows Moon Wright, a brilliant 10-year-old engineer as she goes on a dangerous adventure that just might...

CanniMed Acknowledges Aurora Press Release and Announces Exclusivity Agreement and Intention to Acquire …

By on Nov 15, 2017 in Press Release | 0 comments

SASKATOON, Saskatchewan–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CanniMed Therapeutics Inc. (“CanniMed”) (TSX: CMED) acknowledges the press release of Aurora Cannabis Inc. (“Aurora”) with respect to the announcement of its intention to make an unsolicited offer (the “Unsolicited Offer”) for all of the common shares of CanniMed on the basis of a certain number of Aurora common shares for each common share of CanniMed based on an exchange ratio (the “Exchange Ratio”) noted in the Aurora press release. We advise shareholders to take NO action until such time as the Board has had the opportunity to fully consider and make a recommendation regarding the Unsolicited Offer. At this time, the Board has not received a formal written offer from Aurora. CanniMed notes that the Unsolicited Offer is speculative as the Aurora press release cautions that Aurora may determine not to proceed with its proposal in the circumstances described in the Aurora press release. Further, CanniMed cautions that the share consideration (or equivalent share value) offered by Aurora in its press release is inflated and CanniMed believes over values Aurora in that it is based on the closing price of the Aurora shares on the TSX on November 14, 2017, which reflects an increase of 124.9% over Aurora’s closing price on the TSX over the preceding 12 trading days (Aurora’s closing share price on October 27th, before the recent run-up, was $2.85 which implies a value of $12.90 per CanniMed share at the Exchange Ratio. CanniMed’s closing price on October 27th was $11.53). The Board, in consultation with its financial and legal advisors intends to review the terms set out in the Aurora press release and will communicate further to shareholders as soon as practical and in any event no later than the end of day Friday, November 17, 2017. Further, the Board will provide a formal recommendation to its shareholders in the event that a formal offer is provided. CanniMed also announces that it has previously entered into an exclusivity agreement with, and is in advanced discussions to acquire, Newstrike Resources Ltd. (TSXV: HIP) (“Newstrike”) at an exchange ratio of 0.033 CanniMed shares per Newstrike share, a transaction that if completed would be expected to provide CanniMed with accelerated penetration into the adult use cannabis market....

Amended News Release – Namaste Expands Brazilian Market and Acquires Leading Vaporizer Retailer

By on Nov 14, 2017 in Press Release | 0 comments

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Namaste Technologies Inc. (“Namaste” or the “Company”) (CSE:N) (FRANKFURT:M5BQ) (OTCMKTS:NXTTF) is pleased to announce that it has acquired the domain and customer database of Brazil’s largest vaporizer retailer, vaptvupt.lojaintegrada.com.br (“VapeBr”), in consideration of signing an exclusive services agreement for fulfillment (the “Agreement”) for Namaste’s Brazilian operations. There was no cash consideration for the acquisition. Based on VapeBr’s 90-day sales history with monthly sales over CAD $80,000 per month (with 30% average margin) and through implementation of Namaste’s SEO and machine learning algorithms, the Company expects to add over CAD $1M in additional annual revenue to Namaste’s current revenue stream. Namaste believes that with the acquisition of VapeBR and with establishing a local fulfilment center, that its Brazilian operations will be profitable immediately. Under the terms of the Agreement, Namaste has acquired the VapeBr domain and will therefore inherit all future associated revenue, in exchange for an exclusive fulfillment services agreement. VapeBr management will receive a USD$20.00 fulfilment fee for each order fulfilled and has agreed to provide the following services: Inventory management: maintaining stock on behalf of Namaste, keeping accurate stock counts, monitoring for fraudulent orders and managing chargebacks, providing forecasts for future inventory purchasing. Order processing: receiving orders electronically, picking, packing and processing orders to ship to Namaste and VapeBR customers. Local support: local sales and customer service, managing tickets, live chat. Warranty/Return Processing: receiving faulty items and issuing replacements under warranty. Namaste has also agreed to work with the VapeBr management team to solicit top brands in order to provide local warranty and repair services for the Brazilian market. Many of the top brands do not have local facilities and Namaste believes that in working VapeBr management, it can provide added value to these brands in the quickly emerging Brazilian market. As a result of this transaction, Namaste plans to greatly expand the VapeBr product offering, as it sees very strong growth potential in the Brazilian market. The acquisition of the VapeBr e-commerce platform is not only expected to have an immediate impact on Namaste’s revenue, but it is also expected to add over 10,000 additional customers to Namaste’s growing global database of medical cannabis users. Through the...
