NewBridge Global Ventures, Inc. Closes Equity Purchase Agreement with Kodiak Capital Group, LLC

Orem, Utah, Dec. 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NewBridge Global Ventures, Inc. (“NewBridge” or the “Company”), (OTCQB: NBFT), a company focused on the emerging and dynamic cannabis industry, announced today that it has entered into an Equity Purchase Agreement with Kodiak Capital Group, LLC (“Kodiak”), a Newport Beach, California private equity fund. 

The agreement calls for the Company to file a registration statement with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for the sale of common shares that may be issued to Kodiak under the terms of the Equity Purchase Agreement.  After the SEC has declared the registration statement effective, the Company has the right, at its sole discretion and over a period of three years, to sell up to $2,000,000 of common stock to Kodiak under the terms set forth in the Equity Purchase Agreement. 

Proceeds from the investment will be used for growth capital and to fund the Company’s focused roll-up strategy to acquire industry leading cannabis companies in the ancillary production and distribution verticals that may be utilizing blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies.

“We’re very pleased to continue our beneficial partnership with Kodiak; the flexibility built into this funding vehicle gives the company a strong foundation for rapid growth.” commented Mark Mersman, Chief Executive Officer of NewBridge, “Kodiak recognizes that our Company, and the services we provide, are of great value to the legal cannabis industry.”

Mr. Mersman continued, “Given the capital constraints within the emerging cannabis industry, we believe that NewBridge can provide an invaluable bridge between companies that need growth capital and the investment community that may have limited access to this global market.”

Ryan Hodson, Portfolio Manager of Kodiak, added, “In just a few short months, NewBridge flawlessly executed on the plan Kodiak’s business accelerator designed; it has been gratifying watching them build a solid foundation and rapidly mature into a fully-reporting public company.  We look forward to what the future brings and continuing to fund the growth of such a strong team.”
