Los Angeles, California, UNITED STATES

Company awaits final clearance letter to commence active quotation and trading

LOS ANGELES, CA, July 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PINEAPPLE, INC. (OTC Pink: PNPL) (the “Company” or “Pineapple”), a public reporting company in the legal cannabis industry with a portfolio of assets spanning operational management, technology, IP licensing, cannabis property rentals, and equity ownership in cannabis retail and production facilities. The Company today announced that having attained current standing with the reporting requirements of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission and applied for quotation on the OTC Markets platform, it has entered the anticipated final stages to become publicly quoted on the OTC Markets platform.

Chairman Matthew Feinstein stated, “It has certainly taken longer than we anticipated. However, we have been advised by our market maker there is no definitive timeframe for a further response on our application, which is due to reasons outside the Company’s control. Thus, it could be as little as a couple of weeks or could be a couple months from this point for us to be a publicly quoted and traded company on the OTC platform. That is now in the hands of the regulatory authority.”

CEO & President Shawn Credle added, “We have had multiple rounds of addressing the requested items over the last year and are nearing the final stages with our last correspondence two months ago. We are eagerly awaiting confirmation of our maturation as a public company for the benefit of our shareholders that have believed in us along the way. This is a victory for all of us.”
