FutureWorld (FWDG) 2016 Year in Review

Better Business Model, Better Investments & Better ROI

ST. PETERSBURG, FL--(Marketwired - August 16, 2016) - FutureWorld Corp (FWDG), a Cannabis technology incubator & accelerator, provides the following year in review to its shareholders.

Dear Shareholders;

Cannabis industry is the fastest-growing industry in the United States and had its biggest year ever which could grow by another eight to 10 states in 2016. With the presidential election looming, there is guaranteed to be a massive voter turnout and the initiatives that are poised to include legalization of cannabis on the 2016 ballot stand a chance to make some big changes. The cannabis ballot initiatives could open the door to legalization in more states including Arizona, California, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan and Nevada in 2016. This rapid growth of the industry is a boom for ancillary products providers such as HempTech, CB Scientific, Bioceutical Sciences, NutraCann Labs and incubators such as FutureWorld Corp (FWDG). A majority of Americans continue to support full legalization, nationally, and by 2016, it's entirely possible that marijuana could be a wedge issue in the presidential election.

On the industrial Hemp side, with the 2014 Agricultural Act (known as the Farm Bill) making year 2014 notable and celebrated, 2015 proved to be a year of record-setting, transformative strides within the industrial hemp industry. Laws governing industrial hemp continued to evolve in more and more states, making Industrial Hemp one of most lucrative opportunities to unfold over the course of the year and beyond.

In short, the Cannabis industry will grow from $1.5 billion in 2014 to an estimated $35 billion in 2020.

Who We Are

FutureWorld focuses on the identification, acquisition, development, and commercialization of cannabis related products and services. As a Cannabis Technology Incubator and Accelerator, FutureWorld will incubate and fund leading technologies, products, and services for Cannabis industry (including Industrial Hemp) combining resources to strengthen the company and the industry.

FutureWorld follows a well-tested business incubation model; the seed fund model. The seed fund model thesis is based on a combination of "high-quality filter" and "broad portfolio" approaches. The high-quality filter attempts to ensure that the very best minds, teams and ideas get into FWDG. The broad portfolio approach, statistically, discovers a few breakaway companies in order to provide the big returns to investors. So far the Company has funded 6 companies in 2015 and expects to fund more in 2016.

How We Make Money

We make money by exiting our incubated companies through a sale, reverse merger, merger or an IPO. In any case, some or all of the proceeds, whether in stock or cash, will be returned to the shareholders as dividend. For FutureWorld, our main revenue is derived from cash and marketable securities through our exits.

In most cases we own from 19% to 100% of the companies being incubated by FWDG. According GAAP, we would need to consolidate the financials of all the holdings until they are sold or spun off. Products or services revenue generation by our companies is not our business model, as an incubator, but only a successful exit will define our revenue stream.

Our Companies, Current and Future Results

Four areas within the cannabis industry sector with the most accelerated growth for 2016 and beyond includes;

Medicine - Accessories - Testing - Grow Delivery and Land Leasing. We have and will use this guide to incubate exciting companies for better ROI. All of our companies fall within all of these important areas;

Share Price Decline

2015 has been the worst year for most cannabis stocks with an average decline of 60% to 90%, although the industry itself grow exponentially. FutureWorld was not immune to that decline either. For us, our stock price decline was caused not by our business activities but by the industry trends and our debt obligations. Although we cannot effect the industry trends, we are working hard in relieving our debts and use other methods in raising funds. As of this release, we have cut down most of our debts and have initiated equity funding plan through private placements to continue our growth and investments without dilutive funding obligations. In 2016, we should have sufficient marketable securities to become self-sufficient going forward.

Unlike 2015, 2016 has been a great year for the industry due to many factors including corporate and industry maturity and nationwide acceptance of the cannabis industry. FutureWorld will be part of this lifting tides which will lift up companies with the best business models. As an only public cannabis incubator, our business model will ensure sustainability and profitability for 2016 and beyond.

2016 and Beyond

We have four main objectives in 2016; prove our business model, increase our share price, return more value to our shareholders and invest better in exciting sectors of this growing industry including the ever emergent Hemp market. We intend to return value to our shareholders by stock and cash dividends in 2016.
