Naturally Splendid CEO Mr. Dave Eto stated: “We understand the bulk hemp seed business in South Korea is not what it was in 2016; however, strategically it offers NSE an opportunity to gain access to specific South Korean businesses looking for other value-added ingredients that NSE can provide. NSE will leverage elements of it’s diverse offerings to achieve sales in an extremely competitive market as we continue to identify new countries for export.”

In an effort to re-establish access to the Korean hemp and value-added ingredients markets, the company recently shipped a container of bulk hemp seeds to South Korea, the 13th largest economy in the world, with total imports of agricultural products topping US$35 billion in 2013.

Marcos Agramont, COO of Laguna stated: “This exclusive agreement gives Laguna global distribution for its revolutionary Cannaceutical Skin Care line. The growing popularity and known medicinal benefits of CBD-infused products has created a rapidly expanding multi-billion dollar global marketplace.”

Under the terms of the agreement, Naturally Splendid’s wholly owned U.S. subsidiary will have access to Laguna Blends’ complete suite of seven, custom formulated CBD cosmeceutical products, including anti-aging formulations. The agreement is for three years, provided Naturally Splendid reaches certain cumulative sales volumes, and includes South Korea, Japan, with other countries to be announced, as strategic marketing plans are implemented.

The global skin care industry is currently estimated at US$121 billion with the demand for CBD products growing at an expediential rate. The Hemp Business Journal estimates the total U.S. CBD market will grow to a $2.1 billion market in consumer sales by 2020 with $450 million of those sales coming from hemp-based sources.

Naturally Splendid is a multifaceted biotechnology company that is developing, producing, commercializing, and licensing an entirely new generation of plant-derived, bioactive ingredients, nutrient dense foods, and related products. The company is building an expanding portfolio of patents and proprietary intellectual property focused on the commercial uses of industrial hemp and non-psychoactive cannabinoid compounds in a broad spectrum of applications.

The shares are trading at $0.26, and with 76 million shares outstanding, the company is capitalized at $19.8 million.

Quantum Medical Transport Shareholders Letter

By Quantum Medical Transport, Inc.

HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / April 25, 2017 / Quantum Medical Transport, Inc. (OTC PINK: DRWN)

Quantum Medical Transport Shareholders Letter

Dear Shareholders,

We want to thank you for being shareholders in Quantum Medical Transport and supporting our merger to become public. We want to share our vision going forward to establish shareholder value and confidence in our company. We have received many comments via phone calls and emails regarding the direction of the company and share restructuring going forward. We have given consideration to shareholders interest. The company plans to file an official name change, ticker symbol change, and share restructuring request to FINRA in the month of May. A restructuring of shares is necessary as shareholder stock value has been diminished because of the massive amount of shares already in the public float at the time we acquired the company. We have been in discussion with counsel to determine the appropriate share restructuring plan and will announce it soon. We want to find a way to balance shareholders interest with company needs. The current share price is not attractive as a negotiating tool for potential acquisitions of other synergistic companies. We have identified acquisition targets and in discussion with institutional investors to fund these potential acquisitions. Ideally we would like to grow very quickly through acquisitions, but have forecast very conservative organic growth in our business plan. We went public to gain access to the capital markets to build a company that will add shareholder value as we are all in this together. We presented a private placement offering prospectus to begin the process seeking an initial raise of $3,000,000 through sale of common shares with registration rights agreement. We are exploring this option as the most feasible first step; however we are not limited to this structure of financing. We would ideally like to raise capital without toxic debt as most microcap stock companies do, which is why we have approached the market with private placement capital raise.

We expect to have our audit complete in the month of May 2017 and will file in the S1 registration statement in the month of May 2017. We will then seek tier up listing on OTC Markets as audited financials will be available. We are also considering hiring an IR firm to provide shareholder awareness services. We are excited about the opportunity for growth and expansion of our company and would like you as shareholders to enjoy the ride with us.

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / April 25, 2017 / Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC notifies investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Patriot National (“Patriot” or the “Company”) (NYSE: PN) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased Patriot securities between August 15, 2016 and March 3, 2017, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”).

This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and misleading statements and failed to disclose that: (1) Patriot National special committee was beholden to CEO, Steve Mariano; (2) therefore, the special committee was operating for the benefit of Mariano and not Patriot National or its shareholders; (3) the special committee did not independently assess the merits of the Ebix transaction; (4) the special committee was not exploring strategic alternatives in order to maximize shareholder value; and (5) consequently, defendants’ statements about Patriot National’s business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to review a copy of the Complaint, you can visit the firm’s site: http://www.bgandg.com/pn, or you may contact Peretz Bronstein, Esq. or his Investor Relations Analyst, Yael Hurwitz of Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC at 212-697-6484.

IMPORTANT INVESTOR ALERT: Khang & Khang LLP Announces Securities Class Action Lawsuit against Signet Jewelers Limited and Reminds Investors with Losses Over $100,000 to Contact the Firm

By Khang & Khang LLP

IRVINE, CA / ACCESSWIRE / April 25, 2017 / Khang & Khang LLP (the “Firm”) announces the filing of a class action lawsuit against Signet Jewelers Limited (“Signet” or the “Company”) (NYSE: SIG). Investors, who purchased or otherwise acquired the Company’s shares between August 29, 2013 and February 27, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”), are encouraged to contact the Firm in advance of the May 30, 2017 lead plaintiff motion deadline.

If you purchased Signet shares during the Class Period, please contact Joon M. Khang, Esq., of Khang & Khang LLP, 18101 Von Karman Avenue, 3rd Floor, Irvine, CA 92612, by telephone: (949) 419-3834, or via e-mail at joon@khanglaw.com.

There has been no class certification in this case yet. Until certification occurs, you are not represented by an attorney. You may choose to take no action and remain a passive class member.

The Complaint states that during the Class Period, Signet issued false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that alleged sexual harassment by employees of Signet’s Sterling Family of Jewelers division (“Sterling”) – including numerous incidents of sexual assault and rape which were detailed in approximately 249 declarations signed under penalty of perjury by current and former Sterling employees – made it unlikely that the Company would be able to avoid paying a sizable amount of damages in connection with a class action lawsuit filed by Sterling employees. Signet’s stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period as a result of this information being withheld from the market. On February 27, 2017, The Washington Post published a report revealing widespread allegations of sexual harassment made in the private arbitration that implicated the Company’s senior managers and executives. Upon release of this news, shares of Signet fell in value materially, which caused investors harm.

If you wish to learn more about this lawsuit, or if you have any questions about this notice or your rights, please contact Joon M. Khang, a prominent litigator for almost two decades, by telephone: (949) 419-3834, or by e-mail at joon@khanglaw.com.
