Expanding on the significance of the proposed LVCA/BudTrader acquisition (the “Acquisition”), Bradley J. Yourist, Grapefruit CEO, stated, “The significance of the Budtrader / LVCA Acquisition, which provides us with a Budtrader board seat and the Budtrader CFO position cannot be over emphasized. After the closing of the LVCA / acquisition, Grapefruit will continue to operate our wholesale cannabis distribution business, and our permitted cannabis extraction lab, enjoying growing revenues from these and other streams. We are also finalizing arrangements for the market release of our potentially disruptive, patented time-release “patchless patch” topical cream to the legal cannabis market.

“We work on a daily basis, on a very granular level with BudTrader, the world’s largest cannabis centric social media site, to increase worldwide awareness of our company and its products and services as well as the value proposition we feel is offered by both GPFT and LVCA shares.

We are confident that this unique combination of characteristics will power our goal of becoming one of the world’s leading legal cannabis companies.

We expect to publish our first quarter results the week of May 11, 2020.”
