On a recent episode of Money TV with Donald Baillargeon (http://dtn.fm/6Fu9t), an internationally syndicated television program focusing on financial and economic issues, Singlepoint, Inc. (OTC: SING) chief executive officer, founder, and President Greg Lambrecht discussed his company’s exponential growth and its immediate acquisition plans as the driving force behind the recent increase in stock volume and price. Lambrecht and Baillargeon started the interview by noting how appropriate the company’s ticker symbol is, given that the company has indeed been “singing” lately on the stock market. Singlepoint has been one of the highest volume OTC companies for the last two weeks, Lambrecht said.
The Singlepoint CEO underlined that his company’s main strategy is based on strategic acquisitions that can help it expand its portfolio and get its revenues up. A leading provider of mobile technology, mobile marketing and mobile payment services, Singlepoint already has acquisitions in several verticals, including fantasy sports, mobile payment and auction software, digital advertising and more. Its most recent focus, however, has been the ever-growing cannabis industry. In the wake of last year’s election that made medical and/or recreational marijuana use legal in eight more states, bringing the total number of states that allow the substance to 28, Singlepoint reactivated its SingleSeed Payments subsidiary – a merchant payment processing company aiming to serve legal marijuana businesses. The company also announced plans to expand its reach on the market through new acquisitions.
“We put up an LOI a couple of weeks ago, and you’re going to hear about that soon,” Lambrecht said during the interview. “We also have two other LOIs out there so we are really focusing on acquisitions, and Singlepoint is going to be presenting some very big and very good news on those acquisitions in the near future.”
The Singlepoint CEO did not go into more detail about what acquisitions his company is planning, but he did speak more extensively about the main criteria for these acquisitions. “One of the main criteria right now is that they are in the cannabis business and particularly that they’re in the cannabis business but they don’t actually touch the cannabis – just like us, a merchant processor in the dispensaries,” he explained. One of the companies that meets this criterion and that Singlepoint is already targeting for acquisition is Convectium, which manufactures a unique and innovative oil filling machine able to fill cartridges and disposable vape pens for dispensaries or wholesale distribution. Besides Convectium, Singlepoint is also discussing acquisition with a company that is on the software side of the cannabis industry, Lambrecht said.
In addition to this criterion, another major factor that can decide an acquisition is, naturally, the target company’s financials. “The other companies that we’re looking at have really strong EBITDA and strong revenue numbers,” the Singlepoint CEO said.
Lambrecht also discussed his company’s joint ventures, including venture plans with a couple of mobile pay companies that are expected to be revealed soon and could bring considerable revenue to Singlepoint. The company’s massive success on the market in terms of stock price and volume has also drawn the interest of institutional investors. “We’re getting a lot of attention from Wall Street and other that, even though we’re a Pink and right now we’re offering rule 144, that doesn’t seem to bother them. With our volume and stock price, we have a lot of interested parties that want to invest in Singlepoint and I get why: they know that through the next year, with our acquisitions and joint ventures that we have planned, hopefully the stock in 12 months (…) is going to be the same volume and certainly higher price,” Lambrecht explained.
Furthermore, he said that all the money raised from these investments is going directly toward acquiring companies. “That’s where it should go and that’s where it’s going and this is just going to make the company stronger and have a higher market cap.”
