Grapefruit/GPFT Announces Filing Amendment No. 3 to Key Funding Registration Statement; Plans to Formally Reapply to OTCQB
Thursday, May 28, 2020 8:30 AM
LOS ANGELES and DESERT HOT SPRINGS, CA / ACCESSWIRE / May 28, 2020 / Grapefruit USA, Inc., (OTC PINK:GPFT) ("Grapefruit" or the "Company") a California based cannabis company, is announcing today that it filed Amendment No. 3 to its resale Registration Statement on Form S-1. The Registration Statement covers the resale of shares to be issued to the Company's institutional investor, Auctus Fund, LLC (the "Investor") of Boston, MA upon conversions of Convertible Notes (the "Notes") previously issued to Auctus in to GPFT common stock at approximately 95% of the market price and upon exercise of callable cash exercise-only Warrants issued by the Company to Auctus when the Notes were originally issued. Upon effectiveness of the registration statement, the Investor is obligated to immediately provide an additional tranche of funds to Grapefruit and additional funds ninety (90) days later. When all of the Notes are issued and if the Warrants are fully exercised (including via the Company being able to exercise its call provision), Grapefruit will have received $10,000,000.00 of proceeds from these financing transactions. Grapefruit intends to commence the filing of the OTCQB application next week. As Grapefruit previously disclosed in its January 31, 2020 Press Release, the OTC staff has indicated that Grapefruit will be relisted on the OTCQB upon effectiveness of the Registration Statement.
With respect to Grapefruit's filing and the OTCQB reapplication, Bradley J. Yourist, Grapefruit's CEO, stated, "We are very pleased to file this Amendment. We are looking forward to relisting on the OTCQB which will increase the number of investors who may purchase our stock in the open market. We continue to be on track to finalize the Auctus financing transaction. Pursuant to the terms of our agreements with Auctus, immediately upon effectiveness of the Registration Statement, we will receive additional funds from the Investor and, 90 days following effectiveness, a final Convertible Note Tranche of $1,000,000.00. These funds are key to our revenue growth in 2020, which is already off to an increase over last year. In addition, if our common stock price increases, we will be calling our warrants to bring in additional working capital. We are also in the process of evaluating other capital raising possibilities. We have obviously regained our momentum which was temporarily slowed by the delay in the Grapefruit Boulevard Investments, Inc. audit and look forward to the second half of 2020 and beyond and what we believe are the unlimited possibilities the future holds for Grapefruit. Revenues from our distribution operations are growing at a steady pace and progress with our potentially disruptive patented time-released THC+CBD "Patchless Patch" continues unabated. We expect to bring our "Patchless Patch" to market by the end of June 2020."
