Monday, June 10th, 2013

Marley Coffee, a sustainably grown, ethically farmed and artisan roasted gourmet coffee, announced that Rohan Marley, Founder and Chairman, completed a week-long media tour of New York, which included appearances on CNBC’s Squawk Box, WNBC-TV, WCBS-AM Radio, NPR, and TheStreet.com.

“The Marley name resonates all around the world,” Rohan stated on CNBC’s Squawk Box. “I knew that if I could create a quality product and find the proper retail outlets, it would be a great company.”

Marley also stated that the company’s products are now embraced in thousands of retail outlets including Whole Foods, Dean and Deluca, PC Richard and Son, Bristol Farms, and Kroger Stores.

“What would your father, Bob Marley, think now that his son is the chairman of a publicly traded company?” asked Michael Wallace, host of New York’s popular WCBS Morning Drive radio program. “We created a vehicle where people can be a part of something that will last for generation upon generation,” Marley replied. “He would be very proud that we’re doing something that is sustainable, eco-friendly, and using organic methods.”

“My goal is to continue to build Marley Coffee distribution and add our own stand-alone retail stores,” Rohan commented on TheStreet.com.

When asked how he competes with Starbucks and Green Mountain, Rohan said that he is a different kind of coffee company. “Those guys are my predecessors and they laid the foundation so that people like me could enter the coffee business,” he stated. “But I really don’t try to compete with them. What I do is provide a quality product with a quality taste, that’s sustainable, and present it with a proper price structure so when people see it on the shelves, they will want to try it.”

“I think you have a big hit,” replied Gregg Greenberg, host of TheStreet.com.

Rohan also visited WNBC-TV Studios and talked about his concern for communities. “It’s more than just a business to me,” Rohan stated. “It’s about people’s lives and sustainability.”

SmallCapVoice: Marley Coffee (JAMN) Closes Additional $1,270,000 Equity Transaction With Institutional Investor Ironridge

Tuesday, May 28th, 2013

Marley Coffee, an artisan roasted gourmet coffee, announced that for the second time this year, it has settled trade payables which this time totaled $1,270,000, removing these obligations from its balance sheet in exchange for the issuance of shares of its common stock to Ironridge Consumer Co., a division of Ironridge Global IV, Ltd. (“Ironridge”), an institutional investor specializing in direct equity investments in consumer product companies. Ironridge previously purchased certain debts of the Company held by third party creditors, which make up the amount settled.

In this latest round, over 90% of the financing is going towards paying for the company’s cost of goods to supply its customers. In other words, most of the $1.27M would be associated with the sales side of the business, meaning that about $1.1M in cost goods would be free cash flow for the company on top of the margins it would have already made on the sale of its goods.

“We’ve worked with Ironridge before so we’re very comfortable with working with them again”, said Rohan Marley, Founder and Chairman of Marley Coffee. “We believe that our share price has remained steady due to our relationship with Ironridge as our team has continued to execute on our business plan. We plan on continuing to grow our company and to get our message out to the world,” continued Mr. Marley.

“According to T. Rowe Price analysts, coffee is a particularly dynamic segment at the moment, and single-serve systems are a key driver of growth in the coffee segment because they represent an innovation for consumers,” commented John C. Kirkland, Managing Director of Ironridge Global Partners. Mr. Kirkland continued, “Ironridge remains impressed by what Rohan and his team have accomplished at Marley Coffee. When we sat down the first time, they explained their business strategy to us and ever since the first deal, we have seen them close on that strategy. They exceeded our expectations in delivering what they promised, which is why we are so comfortable offering the same terms with an additional financing round so quickly.”

“The first deal with Ironridge was about increasing the Company’s future cash flows and strengthening our balance sheet,” said Brent Toevs, CEO of the Company. “About two thirds of that financing went towards paying debts related to monies borrowed and vendors and the last third went towards paying off our costs of goods. In the last 10 weeks, we’ve started seeing some of our largest orders come in. This latest round is about generating free cash flow since 90% of the funding is paying down our costs of goods on sales. Our objective is to put that money right back into our growth strategy and to continue building on sales to achieve our 6,000 retail location 2013 goal,” continued Mr. Toevs.

We just got our first order from Best Buy Canada. We’re going into the Kroger system, which is the largest retailer in the country. Plus, we’re going into a lot of really great regional retailers such as H-E-B, Shaw’s and Market Basket.”

“You not only have to have a great product, which we do, and a great brand name that resonates, but you have to have the distribution set up to support these sales,” Toevs commented. He added that Marley Coffee is also adding international distribution and new specialty products. “We are also growing in the U.K, in Chile and Japan, and just added a Marley Coffee liquor.”

SmallCapVoice: Terra Tech Corp. (TRTC) Takes Delivery of 5 Acres of Greenhouse and Begins Expansion Plans for the Edible Garden Brand

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

Terra Tech, a leader in sustainable agricultural products, announced it has completed its purchase of 5 acres of greenhouse to be constructed in Belvidere, NJ. The new structure, which has recently arrived at the construction site, will be utilized to cultivate hydroponic produce to be sold throughout the Northeast.

“The significant savings allows us to expedite our expansion plan and construct the entire project at one time.”

“The interest in locally grown produce throughout the country is increasing. The addition of 5 acres of fully automated greenhouse gives Edible Garden the ability to expand its foot print throughout the Northeast,” said Ken Vande Vrede, COO of Terra Tech.

The procurement of an additional 5 acres of greenhouse structure to be erected in New Jersey is a fundamental step in the company’s expansion plans. Terra Tech has elected to begin construction on the entire 5 acres at one time. Each acre of greenhouse has the ability to cultivate close to $2 million of produce annually. The company plans on increasing the penetration they currently have in the Northeast and have identified 12,000 retailers throughout their local market.

Edible Garden, a premier brand of local and sustainably grown produce is available at close to 400 major grocery store chains such as Shoprite, Food Emporium and others throughout New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. The 5-acre facility will allow Edible Garden to expand into additional markets as well as introduce new products to the market.

“We were able to purchase this facility out of a distressed situation which saved our company close to $1 million. The Vande Vrede’s, through their strong industry connections, procured this opportunity for Terra Tech,” said Derek Peterson, CEO of Terra Tech. “The significant savings allows us to expedite our expansion plan and construct the entire project at one time.”

Upon completion the facility will be a fully automated, high tech, commercial scale hydroponic center capable of producing some of the cleanest, freshest and most energy efficient produce in the northeast. The company anticipates the project will be completed towards the end of 2013 with the first crop to be shipped before year-end. At full production and at current prices Terra Tech expects to generate up to $10 million in revenue from the five-acre greenhouse.

SmallCapVoice: Terra Tech Corp. (TRTC) Completes The Acquisition of Edible Garden and Their Line of Sustainable Hydroponic Produce

Friday, April 26th, 2013

Terra Tech Corp., a leader in sustainable agricultural products, is pleased to announce it has completed its acquisition of Edible Garden and its line of locally grown hydroponic produce, which is distributed throughout the northeast.

Edible Garden a premier local brand of sustainably grown produce has rapidly expanded its product availability from just over 100 retail stores to covering close to 400 retailers throughout New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, New York and Pennsylvania in less than a year. This rapid expansion has been due to consumers demanding fresher produce grown locally using environmentally sustainable methods.

“Edible Garden is fast becoming one of the leading brands in their market,” said Derek Peterson CEO of Terra Tech. “We feel we have an opportunity to replicate the success they created in the northeast throughout the rest of the country. We are in active discussions with other urban farmers throughout the US to cultivate sustainably under Edible Gardens’ standards. We are in the beginning stages of creating a national brand comprised of local farmers. We are looking forward to showing our fiscal growth to shareholders beginning in Q2.”

The cost of acquisition was 1,250,000 shares of common stock. One of Terra Tech’s directors Amy Almsteier will be surrendering 500,000 shares of common stock back to the company to help offset the acquisition cost. During due diligence Terra Tech discovered some change of ownership covenants that existed within GroRites and NB Plants credit facilities that required the companies to refinance. The cost associated with refinancing proved too significant for the company and shareholders to absorb at the present time. Management made the decision to absorb Edible Garden, the biggest growth company, from the Vande Vrede’s while structuring the acquisition to benefit from the current revenue base of both GroRite as well as NB Plants through distribution contracts, which Terra Tech is currently being negotiated.

“The new structure is far less dilutive to shareholders yet we have the benefit of the current business as well as the upside of our regional and national expansion,” said Ken Vande Vrede COO of Terra Tech. “As far as we know Terra Tech is the only public company focused on urban agriculture, and we feel with a ballooning population as well as shrinking arable land, urban Ag is going to be a necessity to feed our populations.”

The company has recently begun its regional expansion plan by purchasing and planning the construction of an additional 5 acres of greenhouse on the Belvidere property. This facility will be solely dedicated to producing the full line of Edible Garden products for sale throughout their local market. At full capacity and at current prices this facility can produce close to $10 million in sales annually for Terra Tech. The company anticipates having this facility completed by year end.

SmallCapVoice: SANUWAVE Health, Inc. (SNWV) Receives U.S. Patent to Sterilize Blood Using Its Shock Wave Technology

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

SANUWAVE Health has received a patent issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office entitled “Method and Devices for Cleaning and Sterilization with Shock Waves.” The claims of the patent (patent number 8,343,420) relate to a new method that sterilizes blood by applying external shock waves to destroy blood pathogens contained in bags, pipes and tubes. The patent has a term extending to July 2031.

“This marks the first of many patents that we intend to add to our intellectual property portfolio to broaden the use of our technology beyond wound care and regenerative medicine,” commented Joseph Chiarelli, Chief Executive Officer of SANUWAVE. “Our strategy is to explore alternative ways to maximize the value of SANUWAVE’s shock wave technology by expanding its use for many applications. This new patent protects a novel capability of our proprietary technology and has the potential to be a significant asset for our Company.”

“Blood sterilization represents a large, unmet medical need. The original method presented in this patent is based on the use of our technology to eliminate bacteria and viruses potentially present in blood that may be contaminated. Further work will focus on the validation that our shock wave technology disrupts the outer membrane of bacteria and viruses, which results in their death. We believe using this method to eliminate pathogens in blood could address the worldwide shortage of human blood by making more ‘safe’ blood available for hospitals,” concluded Mr. Chiarelli.

SmallCapVoice: Webxu, Inc. (WBXU) CEO Issues Shareholder Update Letter

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

Webxu, a media company that owns and operates a network of consumer branded websites and businesses focused on Customer Acquisition, E-Commerce and Mobile Media, today announced the issuance of a letter by CEO Keith Schaefer, to update shareholders on Company progress.

Dear Fellow Shareholder,

Since our last update to shareholders, we have achieved success in a number of endeavors, which were part of our strategic growth plan set in motion in late 2012. We are pleased to report that recent renewed interest in our stock is a sign of the exposure we are getting in the marketplace as a result of our overall efforts in Q1 2013.

Strengthening Balance Sheet

These efforts included a plan to strengthen our Balance Sheet via debt reduction. We recently announced the successful conversion of some shareholder notes into common stock. We would like to add that all investors who converted agreed to do so into restricted shares. This transaction occurred prior to March 25, 2013, and at a nominal discount to market. We feel that this conversion was a big vote of confidence in our overall plan. We intend to continue to improve our balance sheet throughout 2013. We feel that this conversion, plus other anticipated announcements we have in the works, will alleviate the current downward pressure on the stock price and restore a value that more follows the performance of our accomplishments.

Acquisition Growth

We believe that our Acquisition and Strategic Partnership plan is sound. We have several pending acquisition targets in the current pipeline. We anticipate closing these targets in 2013. We also have a number of synergistic strategic partnerships that are currently in the negotiation stage. We believe these pending transactions fit our overall plan and could dramatically change the financial landscape of the Company in a positive way. We are continuing to closely develop these pending targets and partnerships and we will execute on each opportunity that is accretive to our strategy.

Going Forward

We have accomplished many of the key items we had in our strategic plan. With renewed interest in our stock, investor interest is also increasing, which is leading to more incoming inquiries including requests to do business from more Fortune 500 advertisers. We plan to continue to update you on progress as it is made.

As always, thank you for your support.

SmallCapVoice: Marley Coffee (JAMN) Enters Into $1,000,000 Equity Transaction with Institutional Investor Ironridge

Monday, March 11th, 2013

Marley Coffee, an artisan roasted gourmet coffee, today announced that it has settled over $1,000,000 in debt and trade payables, removing these obligations from its balance sheet, in exchange for the issuance of shares of its common stock to Ironridge Global IV, Ltd. (“Ironridge”), an institutional investor specializing in direct equity investments in consumer product companies. Ironridge previously purchased certain debts of the Company held by third party creditors, which make up the amount settled.

The Company continues to pursue an aggressive growth strategy to meet surging customer demand. This transaction is intended to increase Marley Coffee’s future cash flows and strengthen its balance sheet, which will in turn give its customers and vendors more confidence. By eliminating current payment obligations it allows for additional reinvestment of operating cash flows back into the business which will be used to help support the Company’s growing sales and marketing initiatives. This transaction will help support investments in sales personnel and additional marketing activities.

Brent Toevs , CEO of Marley Coffee said, “This transaction is critically important for us and comes at a great time for our Company. We have a very aggressive and rapidly growing sales push ahead of us. Our announcement earlier this week regarding Office Depot is just the tip of the iceberg. This transaction frees up a lot of cash for us to put right back into that sales push which we hope will allow us to bring in large and small accounts. For the larger accounts, the additional cash flow will be utilized for listing fees and regional marketing efforts. For our existing accounts, we plan on putting additional cash flow right back into marketing with a goal of increasing our market share and building long term loyalty with the plan to establish ourselves as the premiere gourmet coffee brand in those markets.”

“I would like to thank Ironridge for their confidence in Marley Coffee and we look forward to continuing to work with them,” said Rohan Marley , Founder and Chairman of Marley Coffee.

“We are impressed with what Rohan, and the team at Marley Coffee have achieved so far,” commented John C. Kirkland , Managing Director of Ironridge. According to the SCAA, the retail value of the U.S. coffee market is estimated at $30 billion dollars, with specialty comprising approximately a 37% volume share but nearly a 50% value share. We believe Marley Coffee is the epitome of what specialty coffee is. We are very pleased to complete this transaction with Marley Coffee.”
