Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – October 23, 2020) – Benchmark Botanics, Inc. (CSE: BBT) (“Benchmark” or the “Company”) Benchmark announces that the ongoing working capital deficiency of Potanicals Green Growers Inc. (“Potanicals“), the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, may result in Potanicals being unable to meet all of its accounts payable at October 31, 2020, including its October 31, 2020 payroll obligations for all 39 of Potanicals’ employees, which will cause material uncertainty about Potanicals’ ability to continue as a going concern. During the period from January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019, Potanicals had a net loss of approximately $1,736,000. As at October 22, 2020, Potanicals had cash of $102,493, and a working capital deficiency of $134,605.

The Company is actively exploring various options to address the financial difficulty issues of Potanicals, including increasing its sales from inventory, cutting its costs, restructuring its operations, and undertaking an equity or debt financing. To meet such funding requirements, if the Company closes an additional equity financing, it would be dilutive to existing shareholders. Debt financing, if available, may also involve restrictions on financing and operating activities. There is no assurance that such additional financing will be available on terms acceptable to the Company or at all. If the Company is unable to obtain additional financing as needed, it may be required to reduce the scope of the operations of Potanicals or any planned expansion.

PURA Addresses Next Steps to Issue Dividend of PAOG Stock

Newsfile

Published

on

Dallas, Texas–(Newsfile Corp. – October 23, 2020) – Puration, Inc. (OTC Pink: PURA) today announced that PURA management and PAO Group, Inc. (OTC Pink: PAOG) management have scheduled combined efforts next week to complete the joint documentation and submission requirements necessary to execute the planned dividend of PAOG stock to PURA shareholders. A joint PURA and PAOG announcement is scheduled for next Friday, October 30, 2020. The dividend update announcement comes today in conjunction with the overall corporate update scheduled for release today and included in its entirety below:

Corporate Update

Last month, PURA introduced Farmersville Brands and announced a major juncture in the company’s growth and development as the company pivots from its hemp derived CBD beverage industry foundation to launch a Texas flavored, holistic lifestyle branded approach into a broader, but still niche, $20 billion sector within an overall market worth at least $2 trillion.

January of this year, PURA launched an acquisition campaign as a forerunner initiative to the Farmersville Brands transition.

Since launching the acquisition campaign in January, the company has acquired a CBD confections business, a CBD pet products business and CBD sun care business. Combined with its existing beverage industry product line, PURA’s combined horizontal market opportunity ranges across over $2 trillion in market value:

Sexual wellness $39 Billion Projected Market Value

Confections $232 Billion Projected Market Value

Pet Products $202 Billion Projected Market Value

Sun Care $12.6 Billion Projected Market Value

Non-Alcoholic Beverage $1.6 Trillion Projected Market Value

Central to the Farmersville Brands transition is the construction of a lifestyle brand that embodies the values, interests, attitudes, and opinions of the population where CBD and hemp products are an ideal fit.

Farmersville Brands holistic lifestyle approach will include a certain Texas personality component built on a targeted 72-acre property in Farmersville, Texas, just north of Dallas, expected to soon be acquired by PURA.

The location is intended to be a hemp mecca were visitors can participate in and learn about the reintroduction of hemp into the American market. Visitors can engage on a recreational weekend sojourn, or engage in a professional capacity to explore the best agricultural and processing practices, and new innovative methods for utilizing hemp to construct homes or to power cars.

Earlier this week, on Wednesday, PURA announced executing a contract to purchase the 72-acre farmland parcel located in Farmersville, TX, for a consideration of $1.3 million. This is a key step in the Farmersville Brand strategy transition.

PURA also has a planned $100 million investment strategy developing to fund the Farmersville transition. The company is keeping details under wraps at the moment but anticipates making the plan pubic before year end.

PAOG Dividend Next Steps

PAO Group, inc. (OTC Pink: PAOG) recently acquired a hemp cultivation business from PURA. PAOG is building a partnership with PURA in conjunction with PAOG’s new hemp cultivation business. PAOG has announced working with PURA’s new hemp processing facility in Farmersville, Texas where the two companies will partner on the construction of a greenhouse for cultivating pharmaceutical grade hemp and a lab for CBD extraction.

PAOG’s partnership includes making PURA shareholders, shareholders of PAOG. PAOG’s purchase of PURA included a PAOG stock issued to PURA shareholders in a dividend distribution. The timing of the execution of the dividend has been impacted by PAOG’s overall large volume of work surrounding the integration of its recently acquired RespRx CBD treatment for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and its newly acquired hemp cultivation operations. PAOG and PURA management have committed time together next week to get the dividend process over the speed bump. A joint progress announcement is planned for a week from today, next Friday, October 30, 2020.

PAOG Signs Clinical Research Organization (CRO) to Advance Respiratory Cannabis Treatment Through Regulatory Approval

Newsfile

Published

on

Sandusky, Ohio–(Newsfile Corp. – October 23, 2020) – PAO Group, Inc. (OTC Pink: PAOG) today announced executing a master services agreement with a clinical research organization in the U.S. to prepare PAOG for initiating an investigational New Drug application (IND) with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). PAOG signed the agreement yesterday, prior to the comprehensive corporate update scheduled for publication today and included in its entirety below.

Corporate Update

Less than 90 days ago, PAOG acquired RespRx from Kali-Extracts, Inc. (OTC Pink: KALY) and began to transform the company into a cannabis biopharmaceutical development operation. The company has come a long way very quickly and management believes the rapid progress has been possible based on the merits of the research backing RespRx.

RespRx is a cannabis treatment under development for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) derived from a patented cannabis extraction method – U.S. Patent No. 9,199,960 entitled, “METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR PROCESSING HERBACEOUS PLANT MATERIALS INCLUDING THE CANNABIS PLANT”.

In an initial scientific evaluation as a treatment for COPD, RespRx has demonstrated affecting significant increases in respiration rate, tidal volume and inspiratory air flow rate. Overall data from the evaluation demonstrated that RespRx can significantly improve inspiratory lung functions in instances of moderate pulmonary fibrosis.

The CRO agreement signed yesterday is a year long agreement and a major step forward to advancing RespRx through the regulatory approval process. PAOG plans to make a joint announcement next week with the CRO company.

As previously announced, and in addition to the CRO agreement announced today, PAOG continues to develop pharmaceutical research and development relationships in Puerto Rico’s burgeoning, recently reinvigorated pharmaceutical industry. An announcement of an anticipated key contract in Puerto Rico is expected soon.

Part of PAOG’s pharmaceutical development strategy includes the development of a proprietary hemp cultivar. In addition to acquiring RespRx from KALY, PAOG recently acquired a hemp cultivation business from Puration, Inc. (OTC Pink: PURA). PAOG is building a partnership with PURA in conjunction with PAOG’s new hemp cultivation business. PAOG has announced working with PURA’s new hemp processing facility in Farmersville, Texas where the two companies will partner on the construction of a greenhouse for cultivating pharmaceutical grade hemp and a lab for CBD extraction.

PAOG’s partnership includes making PURA shareholders, shareholders of PAOG. PAOG’s purchase of PURA included a PAOG stock issued to PURA shareholders in a dividend distribution. The timing of the execution of the dividend has been impacted by the overall large volume of work surrounding the integration of the RespRx and hemp cultivation operations and the prioritization of establishing a CRO contract. PAOG and PURA management have committed time together next week to get the dividend process over the speed bump. A joint progress announcement is planned for a week from today, next Friday, October 30, 2020.
