In addition, the Company wishes to announce the completion of a non-brokered private placement of 7,920,000 units at a price of CDN $0.05 per unit for gross proceeds of US $300,000, with each unit consisting of one common share and one share purchase warrant. Each warrant entitles the holder to acquire a common share at a price of $0.05 per share for a period of 5 years. The common shares and warrants bear a four month hold period from the date of issue.
Steve Gormley, CEO of the Company commented: “I am proud and happy to announce that Bob Yosaitis has joined our board. Mr. Yosaitis brings tremendous experience and resources to the Company, and his investment allows us to continue the advancement of our aggressive growth strategy. We look forward to reporting our progress as we execute our plan.”
Mr. Yosaitis commented, “I’ve always wanted to work with Steve, and after speaking about a number of opportunities over the years this felt like the right time to join forces. I met his entire team and was very impressed by them, so much so that I invested $250,000 into International Cannabrands. I’m looking forward to working with the company and supporting it as we grow.”
Mr. Robert Yosaitis is an investor, owner, and philanthropist whose global career began in 1989 upon opening an international trading office for BHP Petroleum in Dubai, UAE. After becoming the largest jet fuel trader in the Pacific Rim, Mr. Yosaitis founded Bradley Pacific Aviation Inc., a Hawaii fixed based operator and jet fueling company. Despite his late market entrance, Mr. Yosaitis’ focused and organic growth strategies, particularly through the turbulent travel market following September 11th, resulted in an all-island, first in market position with an eventual sale to Ross Aviation in April of 2008.

He is invested in two licensed medical marijuana cultivation facilities and two retail dispensing locations that serve nearly 1,000 qualified California patients every day.

As an owner-applicant in Hawaii’s competitive medical marijuana licensing process, Mr. Yosaitis’ company includes partnerships with one of the largest Hawaiian venture groups whose multi-generational in-state presence emphasizes community partnerships and sustainability.
