LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 26, 2017) - Agritek Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: AGTK) today announced that the Company has completed and fully executed a five (5) year operational and exclusive licensing agreement with a 25,000 sq. ft and one of the largest approved cultivation facilities located in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Agritek Holdings will be the exclusive funding source, and supervise all infrastructure buildout, equipment lease/finance, security systems and personnel and provide access of seasoned Colorado and California cultivation crews to ensure the facility meets all standard operating procedures as set forth by the Department Of Health of Puerto Rico. Under the five (5) year operational contract and licensing agreement, Agritek Holdings will receive revenue in the form of property rent, licensing fees on all vaporizer and edible brands, equipment and lighting rental and financing fees along with equity interest in the property.

In addition to the operational contract which is expected to produce several hundred thousand dollars in revenue for the Company once the cultivation facility is fully functional over the term, the company has received at least one funding proposal from institutional investors for consolidation of over $300,000 of existing derivative debt, $250,000 in cash and up to a three (3) million dollar line of credit for the Puerto Rico operation, the new Canada based "cannabis friendly" Bed and Breakfast and 15 acre facility recently announced as well as future acquisitions.

Agritek will have the opportunity to create numerous jobs, make major investments in the economy of Puerto Rico and set the standard for mandates through new technologies now being developed and licensed by Agritek including seed to sale tracking systems, vaping products and edible brands."
