BEVERLY HILLS, CA / ACCESSWIRE / March 7, 2018 / Stony Hill Corp. (OTCQB: STNY), a diversified cannabinoid therapeutics company focused on the medical, bioceutical, and pet health industries, announced today that it will change its name to Applied BioSciences Corp., to better reflect the focus and resources of the Company.
The Company's management believes that the new name, Applied BioSciences Corp. better aligns the direction and strategy of the business with the key values and mission of its founders and strategic partners. The planned name change is subject to Securities and Exchange Commission and FINRA, a process that the Company anticipates taking approximately 40 days.
Chris Bridges, President of Stony Hill stated, "As we continue to attract highly respected scientists, researchers and doctors to our Company and Advisory board, it is important that our corporate messaging and brand reflects our mission to leverage scientific research and studies to create products that promote healing, health and wellness. We are continuing to innovate and develop new products, in collaboration with our partners, that our customers can trust and rely upon, knowing that every product is tested and held to the highest quality standard in the industry."
As the industry continues to grow and evolve, significantly increased medical, testing and analytics resources and compliance will be required, Stony Hill's management is confident that the Company is well positioned to comply with the new industry standards. As increased testing and regulatory requirements are implemented, the Company expect many companies in the industry will not be able to meet these new standards.
Company Retires 5.4 million Shares
The departure of two of the Company's executives has enabled the Company to repurchase and retire 5.5 million shares of the Company's common stock. This represents an approximately 35% reduction in the outstanding shares, which management believes will add significant value to existing shareholders. As the Company's strategic equity investments continue to show sustained growth, shareholders will benefit from the increase in their indirect pro rata ownership in these assets as a result of this transaction.
