Mota Ventures $MOTA.ca Successful Immune Line Launch Signs Up Over 5,500 New Customers in 12 Days $APH.ca $GBLX $PFE $ACG.ca $ACB.ca $WEED.ca $HIP.ca $WMD.ca $CGRW

  • Since March 14, 2020, Mota has acquired over 5,500 new customers
  • The product has yielded an average initial order value of $189.00 USD.

Mota Ventures Corp. (CSE:MOTA)(FSE:1WZ:GR)(OTCPINK:PEMTF) (the “Company” or “Mota“) is pleased to announce that since the launch of its Immune Support product line on March 14, 2020, the Company has acquired over 5,500 new customers seeking natural solutions to help support their family’s immune systems. The popularity of the primary product has yielded an average initial order value for immune support customers of $189.00 USD. Earlier this week the Company introduced an Immune CBD oil and Elderberry Gummies. The new Immune CBD product contains CBD, B3, B12, vitamin C and zinc and is made from 100% pure essential oils containing cinnamon leaf, lemon, clove bud, lime, eucalyptus, globulus, rosemary, peppermint, spearmint and oregano.

The Company has acquired over 50,000 new customer inquiries for Immune Support/CBD products since March 14, 2020. The Immune Support line is gaining interest from customers that historically were hesitant to purchase CBD, but are now interested in the Immune products and the potential anti-inflammatory benefits of CBD. In addition, traditional brick-and-mortar stores have been affected due to social distancing requirements, driving consumers to purchase online from the safety of their homes.

“The Immune Support product launch has been the most successful product launch in the history of our First Class brand. E-Commerce is a fast-moving sector, especially during these very unique times we are facing today. Our ability as a company to quickly develop and launch new products to meet market demand is a testament to our expertise. I am very excited by the reception we have received to date for our Immune Line of products. I project demand for the line will continue through Q2 and be a significant driver to our growth for 2020,” stated Ryan Hoggan, CEO of the Company.

Additionally, the Company has entered into a 12 month programmatic digital advertising campaign with Native Ads, Inc. for a total cost of C$80,000; consisting of C$72,000 for digital advertising, paid distribution, and media buying over the campaign period and, C$8,000 for content creation, consulting, managed services and management fees over the course of the campaign period. Native Ads is a full-service advertising agency, that owns and operates a proprietary ad exchange with over 80 integrated SSPs (supply side platforms) resulting in access to 3-7 billion daily North American ad impressions. Neither Native Ads nor any of its directors and officers own any securities of the Company.

Mota Ventures $MOTA.ca Moves Forward with Its Acquisition of Spanish CBD Company Sativida $APH.ca $GBLX $PFE $ACG.ca $ACB.ca $WEED.ca $HIP.ca $WMD.ca $CGRW

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 8:51 AM on Thursday, March 26th, 2020

Mota Ventures Corp. (CSE:MOTA)(FSE:1WZ:GR)(OTCPINK:PEMTF) (the “Company” or “Mota“) is pleased to announce that further to its January 10, 2020 news release, it has now acquired the intellectual property and trade names of Sativida from Sativida OU (Estonia). The Company will license both back to Sativida OU’s subsidiary, VIDA BCN LABS S.L. (collectively with Sativida OU, “Sativida“) in exchange for a royalty associated with the gross revenues generated by Sativida.

Sativida is an arms’-length producer and online retailer of cannabidiol (“CBD“) and branded CBD products in various jurisdictions in Europe, including Spain, Portugal, Austria, Germany, France and the United Kingdom. Sativida currently develops and retails a vast range of organic CBD oils and cosmetics across Europe and is in the process of expanding its distribution network internationally to include the United States. Sativida has become the number one search-ranked online retailer of CBD products in Spain and Mexico, and intends to continue its expansion into other countries in Europe and Latin America.

Through Mota, Sativida has an agreement with Unified Funding, LLC (“Unified“) for the expansion of the brand into the United States. Unified will provide assistance to Sativida with product sourcing, packaging, shipping, payment infrastructure and marketing in the United States. Unified Funding is an e-Commerce and technology company focused on serving U.S.-based and international consumers in the CBD and natural health products market. Powered by its proprietary technology platform, Unified has created an e-Commerce ecosystem to scale its brands through data analysis, strategic customer acquisition and supply chain management. Since June 2015, Unified has generated a database of over 4.5 million consumers and has facilitated over US$200 million in consumer transactions from more than one million paying customers.

“I am very excited to announce the acquisition of the Sativida brand. This gives Mota immediate entry into the European market and will be a building block for our planned European expansion. Mota’s U.S. operation, First Class CBD, is set to enter the European market and we expect the acquisition of the Sativida brand to expedite this expansion. Furthermore, our partnership with Unified Funding, LLC, the e-Commerce platform behind the success of First Class CBD, will allow us to bring the Sativida brand to the U.S. market as well,” stated Ryan Hoggan, CEO of the Company.

Noah Laith, founder of Sativida, commented, “Joining Mota is a major step for Sativida that will provide access to the capital, connections and infrastructure necessary to grow our business in Europe and internationally.”

Pursuant to the previously announced binding agreement with Sativida dated January 9, 2020 (the “Transaction Agreement“), the Company was granted the right to acquire Sativida in stages (the “Transaction“), at the discretion of the Company, as certain corporate and intellectual property registrations were completed. To accomplish this, the Company set up a wholly-owned Spanish subsidiary (“Spanish Subco“) and coordinated the registration of various intellectual property and trade names associated with business operations of Sativida.

The Company, through Spanish Subco, has now completed the acquisition of the intellectual property and trade names of Sativida in Spain, and will license both back to Sativida in exchange for a royalty associated with the gross revenues generated by Sativida. Pursuant to the Transaction Agreement, the Company also holds the right to acquire, through Spanish Subco, all of the outstanding share capital of Sativida at any time for no additional consideration.

Consideration for the Transaction is made up of an initial component of €2,000,001 (the “Consideration“) and an earn-out component made up of three milestone payments based upon the revenue of Sativida (each, a “Milestone Payment“). The Consideration was paid in 5,496,221 common shares of the Company (the “Consideration Shares“) at a deemed price of $0.5689 per share. Each Milestone Payment will be based on a 400% multiple of Sativida’s revenue until the aggregate of the Initial Consideration and Milestone Payments reaches €4,000,000, at which point the multiple will be reduced to 100%. In no event will the combined Milestone Payments and the value of the Initial Consideration exceed €15,000,000. Payment of the Milestone Payments will be satisfied by the Company issuing common shares (“Milestone Shares“) to Sativida. The total number of Milestone Shares issuable to Sativida will be determined by dividing the amount due by the volume weighted average closing price of the Company’s common shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange in the ten trading days prior to the day that the Milestone Payment is due.

The Consideration Shares and the Milestone Shares will each be subject to a 36-month pooling arrangement such that 10% of the Consideration Shares, or the Milestone Shares, as applicable, will be released from escrow on upon their issuance, with an additional 15% being released every six-months thereafter until all Consideration Shares or all Milestone Shares, as applicable, are released.

As part of the Transaction, Mota Ventures will enter into employment contracts with certain employees of Sativida and will provide an option pool that may be divided among the employees of Sativida equal to €60,000 in stock options of Mota Ventures for every €1,000,000 in revenue that Sativida earns, subject to certain conditions. Additionally, Mota Ventures has paid a 10% finder’s fee based on the total value of the Consideration Shares (528,072 common shares) to certain finders that assisted in introducing the Transaction to the parties as well as a 2% administrative success fee based on the total value of the Consideration Shares (105,614 common shares) to a consultant who assisted in the administration of the transaction.

The Company and Sativida are at arms’-length. The Transaction is not expected to result in a “reverse-takeover” or “fundamental change” for the Company under the policies of the Canadian Securities Exchange, or result in the creation of any new insider or control person of the Company. No changes to the board of directors, or management, of the Company are contemplated in connection with the Transaction.
