Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure
Sugarmade Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) makes the following disclosures pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d) of The Securities Exchange Act of 1934, generally referred to as Regulation FD Disclosure. Management of the Company makes the below statements relative to new and ongoing events at the Company in order to ensure all investors in the Company, and others who may have interest in the Company, receive timely information and to ensure the timing of the delivery of such information is consistent relative to all parties.
On September 25, 2018, Sugarmade issued two proposals summarizing the principal terms regarding the acquisition of all of the outstanding capital stock, assets and assumption of liabilities of two market participants within the hydroponic cultivation supply sector. Management of the Company believes both proposals are likely to be accepted leading to definitive agreements to complete the acquisition(s).
Relative to the proposed acquisition(s), management of the Company and its board of directors believe the acquisition(s) will be highly accretive to common shareholder value and will significantly strengthen the Company’s position in the fast growing hydroponic cultivation and supply market sector.
The first acquisition target is a Southern California-based, major supplier of hydroponic cultivation supplies to the wholesale sector and to large commercial cultivators. Sugarmade’s proposal is to acquire all of the outstanding capital stock and the business operations for a combination of cash and common shares of Sugarmade. The target company is believed to be one of the larger operators in this market sector and is producing revenues of approximately $40 million per year, is profitable, and cash flow positive. Should the Company be successful in its acquisition efforts, the operation would be integrated under the Sugarmade corporate umbrella with Sugarmade assuming all operations and recognizing all revenues and profits.
The second acquisition target is a Washington state-based supplier, which is primarily a retailer of hydroponic cultivation supplies. Sugarmade’s proposal is to acquire all of the outstanding capital stock and business operations of the target in an all-stock transaction. The target is producing revenues of approximately $5 million per year. Should the Company be successful in its acquisition efforts, the operation would be integrated under the Sugarmade corporate umbrella with Sugarmade assuming all operations and recognizing all revenues and profits.
While Sugarmade has yet to issue formal proposals for acquisition, the Company has entered talks with two additional suppliers of hydroponic cultivation supplies, which represent cumulative annual revenues of more than $50 million. Both are also profitable. While formal discussions continue, it is not known at this time if such discussions will result in formal proposals for acquisition. Sugarmade’s overall goal relative to this acquisition strategy is to accelerate growth, while expanding the breadth of its distribution channels. Sugarmade believes acquiring the two above outlined target companies will enable the Company to cover all three of the most important distribution sectors within the fast-growing hydroponic cultivation sector, 1) online and e-commerce, 2) the wholesale market, which services brick and mortar retailers, and 3) large- scale commercial cultivation operations. Management believes these acquisitions will not only afford opportunities to meaningfully accelerate top-line revenue growth, but will also provide significant cost synergies relative to manufacturing, purchasing, international transport, warehousing, and shipment to end commercial accounts and consumers.
