$TCAN Details Modesto Facility in Video Tour

TransCanna Holdings (CSE: TCAN) (FSE: TH8) recently acquired a 196,000-square-foot, self-contained production and distribution facility in Modesto, California. A recent article discussing the company reads, “The Modesto facility will serve as a production hub that enables TransCanna to cultivate and deliver the 15 brands to scale as the company grows over time. TransCanna recently produced an eight-minute video as a quick tour of the facility (http://nnw.fm/6Rrfl), which is part of a larger 5.5-acre property purchase that the company can develop with an additional, still-larger structure to grow its own biomass. As it is, the current facility has space for a significant-sized nursery, as well as grow, manufacturing, bottling, baking, extraction and transportation operations. . . . ‘The benefit here is that we have better temperature control, better humidity control. We don’t bring any outside air into any of the controlled environments inside the facility. So it really differentiates us from anybody else in the industry,’ Pakulis said during the video tour of the existing structure. ‘And it was specifically designed for this facility by the sellers. And the sellers, for the last 25 years, have designed these systems for food-grade processing facilities throughout the United States. . . . It is truly a vertically integrated facility.’”

$INMB Publication of Data on INKmune in Peer-Reviewed Journal PLOS ONE

LA JOLLA, Calif., June 27, 2019 — INmune Bio, Inc. (NASDAQ: INMB), an immunotherapy company developing treatments that harness the patient’s innate immune system to fight disease, announced today that the peer-reviewed open access scientific journal PLOS ONE published an article titled: “Tumor- and cytokine-primed human natural killer cells exhibit distinct phenotypic and transcriptional signatures,” summarizing the different effects between NK cell activation in response to tumor cells and cytokine-mediated activation.

Co-authored by Dr. Mark Lowdell, Chief Scientific Officer and co-founder at INmune Bio, the paper defines the response of natural killer (NK) cells following their encounters with tumor cells and provides insight into tumor-specific NK cell responses; helping the transition toward harnessing their therapeutic potential in cancer. The paper identifies a unique signaling “fingerprint” expressed by NK cells after binding to CTV-1 tumor cells, which is the parent clone of INmune Bio’s own INB16 cells.

Through these observational data, researchers are able to use that knowledge to apply the strategy to build immunotherapy treatments. Priming NK cells with controlled exposure to tumor cells – which is the mechanism of action of INKmune – in the patient is potentially more effective against cancer targets with potentially fewer side effects than the administration of cytokines such as IL-2 or IL-15.

“We are delighted to be sharing these data describing the unique molecular pathways triggered within human NK cells upon priming with INmune Bio’s own INB16 (INKmune) cell line,” says Dr. Lowdell. “These data confirm that the primed NK cells generated by INB16 stimulation upregulate genes, which are crucial to NK-mediated killing of patients’ cancer cells, such as CD70 and CXCL10. These differences in gene expression may explain the greater cytotoxic activity of INB16 primed NK cells in vitro compared to cytokine primed cells which may lead to greater clinical efficacy.”

“This work has combined expertise across many groups, and it was important to publish these data in a highly-regarded open access journal to ensure that they are available to the widest possible audience,” concludes Dr. Lowdell.

About INmune Bio, Inc.

INmune Bio, Inc. is a publicly traded (NASDAQ: INMB) clinical-stage biotechnology company developing therapies targeting the innate immune system to fight disease. INmune Bio is developing three product platforms: two products that reengineer the patient’s innate immune system’s response to cancer and one product to treat neuroinflammation that is currently focused on Alzheimer’s disease. INKmune is a natural killer (NK) cell therapeutic that primes the patient’s NK cells to attack minimal residual disease, the remaining cancer cells that are difficult to detect, which often cause relapse. INB03 inhibits myeloid derived suppressor cells (MDSC), which often cause resistance to immunotherapy, such as anti-PD-1 checkpoint inhibitors. XPro1595 targets neuroinflammation, which causes microglial activation and neuronal cell death. INmune Bio’s product platforms utilize a precision medicine approach for the treatment of a wide variety of hematologic malignancies, solid tumors and chronic inflammation.

$OGI Cannabis Companies are Aggressively Expanding their Global Footprint

Palm Beach, FL – June 26, 2019 — The cannabis market is gaining significant traction.  Over the last year, Canada approved its recreational use.  More U.S. states are legalizing.  Corporate America is using cannabis in everything from lotions and sunscreen to alcohol and sports drinks. President Trump signed the 2018 Farm Bill into law.  In addition, over the next decade, spending on worldwide cannabis could reach $57 billion by 2027, according to Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics.  In their report, “The Road Map to $57 Billion Worldwide Market,” analysts note that the South American market for example could grow from $125 million in 2018 to $776 million by 2027. They also note that Germany could become the leader in the European cannabis market, with Italy expected to see $1.2 billion cannabis sales by 2027.  That’s opening a wide range of opportunity for companies including MYM Nutraceuticals Inc., (CSE:MYM) (OTCQB:MYMMF), Cannabis Science Inc. (OTCPK:CBIS), OrganiGram Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:OGI)(TSX-V:OGI), Curaleaf Holdings Inc. (CSE:CURA)(OTCQX:CURLF), and The Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX:FIRE)(OTCQX:SPRWF).

ZeaKal’s proprietary technology, PhotoSeed, increases a plant’s intrinsic photosynthetic capacity, meaning that PhotoSeed™ plants can convert more sunlight and carbon dioxide into energy for growth. This results in substantial improvement in seed and grain yield, as well as improved macronutrient profiles that drive an increase in both oil and protein content. For farmers, this means better productivity and profit margins; for consumers, this means higher nutritional profiles and an environmentally friendly way to meet growing global demand.  With multi-year field trials across diverse plant species in the United States, Canada and New Zealand, the initial commercial focus has been on major row crops. Following Canopy Rivers’ investment, ZeaKal intends to expand its program to include cannabis and hemp.

$TGODF $TGOD Coming Wave of Edibles and Vape Sales Sends Canada into Legalization 2.0 Mode

New York, NY – June 25, 2019 – The date has been set for the rollout of new cannabis products in Canada, such as vape pens, edibles, beverages, topicals, and extracts. Regulations for this second wave of legalization, dubbed “Cannabis 2.0”, go into effect on October 17th, with products hitting shelves about two months later. Companies are well-positioned for this new growth opportunity are emerging, such as Organigram Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:OGI) (TSX.V:OGI), Namaste Technologies (TSX.V:N) (OTCQB:NXTTF), The Supreme Cannabis Company (TSX:FIRE) (OTCQX:SPRWF), The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX:TGOD) (OTCQX:TGODF) and HEXO Corp. (NYSE:HEXO) (TSX:HEXO).

Industry analysts are already predicting Canadians will experience a tight supply upon mid-December’s legal market inauguration. However, a select few companies, particularly Organigram Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:OGI) (TSX.V:OGI), have been announcing their strategy and preparations for Cannabis 2.0’s advent.

Having already partnered with The Green Solution, Canada’s Smartest Kitchen, and Valens GroWorks, Organigram has positioned itself well for the largest product form segments of the Cannabis 2.0 market. Most recently, the company announced they have been selected as one of only four Canadian partners of PAX Era, the premium oil vaporizer created by leading vape heavyweight PAX Labs Inc.  Organigram is getting ahead on a vaporizer market that’s widely expected to emerge as the most popular format in the Cannabis 2.0 market based on US sales data.

Vaping Extra Value

Joining Organigram in partnering with PAX (founders of Juul, the most popular vape pen in the U.S.), are three other companies, including The Supreme Cannabis Company. Not to be left out on the vape market’s potential, The Green Organic Dutchman has signed a partnership deal with the parent company of vape pen manufacturers Evolab, likely to set up TGOD supplies for vape consumption.

Ray Gracewood, senior vice-president for marketing at Organigram Holdings Inc. (OGI), told BNN Bloomberg his company is earmarking approximately one-quarter of its cannabis for the concentrate market ahead of the demand it hopes to see for vape products.

“We think the vaporizer market will be the second-biggest market next to dried flower in the short term and the biggest driver to get new consumers in the space,” said Gracewood, adding that his company also plans to produce cartridges and disposable devices for the Canadian market.

Organigram, through its Edison Cannabis Co. brand, was also selected as the exclusive Canadian supplier of Feather Company Ltd.’s industrial design-patented vaporizer hardware and technology. This gives the company two bona fide options to gain traction in the vape segment.

Incoming Edibles Options

Plenty of experts are projecting that once the new cannabis licensing rules launch new products in December, Canada’s cannabis supply shortage could get even worse.

New edible (and drinkable) products are expected to be coming down the line in December. While details on their intentions aren’t fully available, The Green Organic Dutchman is set to deliver potentially several new edible products. The company secured an exclusive license with fast-acting Stillwater Foods’ RIPPLE SC (Soluble Cannabinoids) ingredient technology, to easily infuse cannabinoids into beverage and food products.

HEXO Corp. will be leaning on the beverage expertise of Joint Venture partners, Molson Coors Brewing Co. Together the partnership is expected to have a variety of (non-alcoholic) drinkable products ready in time for a national rollout in December.

For Namaste Technologies the plan is to deliver a line of chocolates through a partnership with Calgary-based chocolatiers, Chokolat. Organigram Holdings Inc. (OGI) is also looking to the chocolate option, through a C$15 million investment commitment in a high-speed, high-capacity, fully-automated production line with the ability to produce an estimate of up to 4 million kilograms of chocolate cannabis edibles per year.

With all of these new products and more on deck, Licensed Producers (LPs) will be charged with the task of meeting significantly higher and more complex supply expectations once Cannabis 2.0 officially hits. This is where dependence on major growers such as New Brunswick-based, Organigram could possibly ramp up.  Construction of their Phase 4 expansion is expected to be completed by the end of 2019 for target production capacity of 113,000 kilograms per year, once fully licensed and operational[1].

Cultivation efficiency is shaping up to be one of Organigram’s biggest strengths. Its per-gram cash cost is the lowest reported by Canadian LPs, at C$0.65/gram, with an equally impressive all-in cost of C$0.85/gram of dried flower harvested[2].

A true national player in Canada’s legal adult use recreational cannabis marketplace, Organigram is now distributing products for sale in all ten Canadian provinces. The company recently announced the first shipment of its cannabis products to the province of Quebec, following purchase orders placed with the Société québécoise du cannabis (SQDC) and registration with the Autorité des Marchés Publics.

The market may need major cultivation boosts from suppliers like Organigram Holdings Inc. (OGI), a company with a strong track record of meeting supply commitments, to keep up with the additional demand that’s likely set to come.

Plenty of Innovation on the Way

Primarily focused on the e-commerce side of the medical marijuana business, Namaste Technologies (TSX-V:N) (OTCQB:NXTTF), is gearing up for new cannabis edibles customers with a sweet tooth. Earlier in March, the company acquired a 49% stake in Calgary-based chocolate company, Choklat. For a payout of C$1.5 million, Namaste now has access to Choklat’s online distribution platform where it will soon add a line of cannabis-infused edibles, likely later this year when they become officially legal to sell in December.

On the beverage side of the industry, HEXO Corp. (NYSE:HEXO) (TSX:HEXO) partnered with Canadian brewing giant, Molson Coors Brewing Co. for a joint venture to begin selling multiple types of pot beverages on Canadian shelves before the end of the year. The JV insists that none of these products will contain alcohol, however, Molson Coors’ reach and distribution capabilities, coupled with HEXO’s growing capacity should make an impact once launched.

Not to be left out of the edibles market, The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX:TGOD) (OTCQX:TGODF) established its supply chain for new edible products in time, ahead of December. Through a definitive long-term extraction supply agreement with Neptune Wellness Solutions signed in March, ‘TGOD’ will supply more than 230,000 kgs of cannabis and hemp biomass over a three-year period. The deal is believed to signal TGOD’s anticipation of launching a line of cannabis edibles and alternative products later this year.

TGOD has also positioned itself for the unfettering of the popular cannabis vape market. Back in May, the company announced an exclusive agreement with CBx Enterprises LLC for the licensing of the Evolab and CBx Sciences brands. CBx Sciences likely is more in line with developing products for the edibles market, whereas Evolab is a top cannabinoid vaporization brand that’s gained a significant market share through its variety of products.

Joining in on the vape movement, both The Supreme Cannabis Company (TSX:FIRE) (OTCQX:SPRWF) and Organigram Holdings Inc. (OGI) have secured agreements with US vape pen company, PAX Labs Inc. Through their respective 7ACRES and Edison Cannabis Co brands, Supreme Cannabis and Organigram are two of the only four Canadian suppliers of cannabis oil pods for the strong brand Pax Era, which sells as many as 1.5 million units of products globally per year.

$RIV $RIV.V $CNPOF New York Marijuana Decriminalization Expands as Full Legalization Fails

As plans to legalize marijuana fully appear to have hit a dead end in the New York State legislature, the lawmakers have agreed to expand the decriminalization of the drug in addition to providing for the automatic expungement of low-level cannabis possession convictions across the state.

On Thursday, Senators agreed to treat the possession of up to two ounces of cannabis as an infraction punishable by a $50 fine instead of regarding it as a crime. This measure marks a huge change in a state where thousands of residents have been caught on the wrong side of the law and been incarcerated.

The agreement on the expungement measure comes as a compromise deal after it became apparent that there wouldn’t be enough support to pass a full legalization measure. While legalization has failed, cannabis industry advocates still regard this approved measure as a step forward for the industry.

The bill passed with a 39-23 vote in the Senate as the legislative session dragged beyond its expected end on Wednesday.

Gov. Cuomo, who a couple of years ago called marijuana a “getaway drug” was all praises for the decriminalization measure. He said the measure will give relief to the thousands snared by the state’s criminal justice system because of marijuana.

This isn’t the first time that the State of New York is decriminalizing marijuana possession. In 1977, the state decriminalized the possession of a maximum of 25 grams. The new bill more than doubles that possession limit.

It should be noted that under the new law, the possession of more than 2 ounces of marijuana is still a crime and nothing has changed regarding smoking cannabis in public. It is still forbidden.

All the same, this limited measure is still a victory because New York has been notorious for its restrictive marijuana laws. For example, under the medical marijuana program which was legalized in 2014, smoking medical marijuana isn’t allowed.

Many Senators who spoke during the hearing on the measure were disappointed that the bill didn’t seek to fully legalize marijuana. They cited the fact that medical marijuana has been legal for years as proof that cannabis has some value, so they couldn’t understand why it still remained illegal in the state.

The legislators are also debating a proposal tabled by State Senator Diane Savino to expand the medical cannabis program from its “current overly restrictive design” to something more accommodative.

Republicans, who are now the minority in both legislative chambers in New York State, made futile attempts to block the decriminalization measure, calling it “harmful to people.” It isn’t yet clear how industry players like Chemistree Technology Inc. (CSE: CHM) (OTCQB: CHMJF) and Canopy Rivers Inc. (TSX.V: RIV) (OTC: CNPOF) will react to the current cannabis news coming out of Albany.

$LXRP DehydraTECH Continues to Demonstrate Effectiveness in Lab Testing

Lexaria Bioscience’s (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) patented drug-delivery platform, DehydraTECH, has exhibited continued success in recent animal lab tests by delivering cannabinoids to the bloodstream faster than conventional cannabinoid formulations (http://nnw.fm/fsKW4). A recent article discussing the company reads, “Lab tests and actual licensed use in the cannabis industry have proved that DehydraTECH’s long-chain fatty acid (“LCFA”) formulation is able to deliver cannabinoids faster than formulations with medium-chain triglyceride (“MCT”) oils, such as coconut oil. DehydraTECH also offers the most advanced flavor and aroma-profile masking techniques in the industry. The groundbreaking technology could negate the need for artificial chemical masking agents or flavoring agents/sweeteners that mask the bitter flavors and aromas of cannabis. . . . Over the entire 60 minutes of the study, the DehydraTECH LCFA formulation delivered a CBD blood concentration level that was 334 percent higher than the level identified in animals that received the MCT oil formulation. The lab tests on animals compared how quickly a DehydraTECH formulation containing LCFA could deliver cannabinoids to the bloodstream, as compared to a concentration-matched conventional industry cannabinoid edible formulation with MCT oil. Coconut oil is commonly used due to its luxurious taste and mouth-feel, which can hide unpleasant cannabis flavors.”

$TCAN Featured in CannabisNewsAudio Broadcast, Evolution of Cannabis Industry

NEW YORK, June 21, 2019 — via CannabisNewsAudio — TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE:TCAN) (XETR:TH8) announces the availability of an audio press release titled, “Acquisitions Reveal the Steadily Changing Shape of the Cannabis Sector.”

To hear the CannabisNewsAudio version, visit: http://cnw.fm/T0d0X.

To read the full editorial, visit: http://cnw.fm/G8nPH.

The growth of the legal cannabis industry started with a scattershot approach. TransCanna is just one of many companies that have grown into the market from relatively small beginnings. Some began with entrepreneurs seeing a new industry within which to operate. Others were experienced cannabis cultivators moving from the illegal to the legal market. Still others were pharmaceutical companies dipping their toes into a new medicine and, from there, into the recreational industry.

The contrasting approaches of small innovative companies and larger efficient ones together create excellent value. That’s the point the cannabis industry is now approaching and that TranCanna’s acquisitions are a part of.

$INMB Developing Innovative Drug Candidates to Treat Cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease

INmune Bio (NASDAQ: INMB), a diversified clinical-stage immunology company focused on developing treatments that harness the patient’s innate immune system to combat disease, is currently developing drug candidates INKmune and INB03, which may be used to treat cancer, and XPro1595, which targets neuroinflammation as a cause of Alzheimer’s disease. An article further discussing the company reads, “XPro1595 targets the microglial immune cells of the brain that are activated in many Alzheimer’s disease patients. These microglial cells are a cause of neuroinflammation that can kill nerve cells and promote synaptic dysfunction — the cause of dementia in Alzheimer’s. A phase I clinical trial in patients with Alzheimer’s disease, supported by the Alzheimer’s Association grant, is expected to be initiated in the summer of 2019. . . . Upcoming catalysts for INmune Bio include advancements in several clinical trials featuring INB03 and INKmune — both of which are focused on ‘taking the brakes off’ the body’s innate immune system to become a powerful weapon in the fight against cancer. INB03 is a checkpoint inhibitor that targets cells resistant to immunotherapy to instead become therapeutically effective; INKmune primes a patient’s own natural killer cells to move from a resting state to an active state to attack and eliminate residual disease (lingering cancer cells) after cancer therapy.”

About INmune Bio Inc.

INmune Bio Inc. (NASDAQ: INMB) is a publicly traded, clinical-stage biotechnology company developing therapies targeting the innate immune system to fight disease. INmune Bio is developing three product platforms: two products that re-engineer the patient’s innate immune system’s response to cancer and one product to treat neuroinflammation that is currently focused on Alzheimer’s disease. INKmune is a natural killer (“NK”) cell therapeutic that primes the patient’s NK cells to attack minimal residual disease, the remaining cancer cells that are difficult to detect, which often cause relapse. INB03 inhibits myeloid derived suppressor cells (“MDSC”), which often cause resistance to immunotherapy, such as anti-PD-1 checkpoint inhibitors. XPro1595 targets neuroinflammation, which causes microglial activation and neuronal cell death. INmune Bio’s product platforms utilize a precision medicine approach for the treatment of a wide variety of hematologic malignancies, solid tumors and chronic inflammation.

$TGOD $TGODF Launches Global Strategic Hemp Division

  • Global CBD market expected to hit $22 billion within 3 years
  • TGOD to leverage HemPoland’s strong expertise in the European hemp CBD market
  • 158 acres of certified organic farmland located in Southern Ontario
  • Planting underway with first harvest expected within 12 weeks

TORONTO, June 20, 2019 – The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (the “Company” or “TGOD”) (TSX:TGOD) (US:TGODF) is pleased to announce its expansion into the global organic hemp CBD market with the launch of its Global Strategic Hemp Division. This new division will leverage TGOD’s solid expertise in the European hemp CBD market to fuel growth and accelerate the development and commercialization of new products across its network of international partners.

“With the global CBD market expected to hit $22 billion in less than 3 years, it is clear that the segment is drawing substantial consumer demand,” commented Brian Athaide, CEO of TGOD.  “Our team has years of direct hands-on experience in the CBD space and we are excited to use this advantage to execute on a fast-moving market expansion strategy.  CBD is a wellness product and has a natural fit with TGOD’s certified organic positioning and the large segment of consumers who are increasingly demanding natural and organic products.  The time to act is now, and TGOD has the team, the infrastructure and the capital to establish a significant presence in this market.”

TGOD’s acquisition of HemPoland in 2018 will continue to provide the Company with significant intellectual property and valuable insights as its Global Strategic Hemp Division expands into emerging hemp CBD markets. HemPoland saw its revenue for the first quarter grow by nearly 30% quarter over quarter as demand for high-quality hemp CBD products in Europe gains momentum.

HemPoland has years of experience in cultivating and processing EU-registered hemp varieties, which are very similar to those currently allowed for cultivation in Canada. Given that the processing of industrial hemp flowers for CBD was illegal in Canada until October 2018, HemPoland’s experience in both research and development, as well as commercial extraction of hemp strains in an efficient manner, provides a distinct advantage to TGOD and its partners.

TGOD’s Global Strategic Hemp Division will offer significant support to the Company’s international partners by providing genetics, training on organic methods and standard operating procedures, as well as regulatory insights and other advisory support. This will allow for the production of consistent high-quality organic hemp and CBD in global markets. The division will initially work to support initiatives in Canada, Germany, Jamaica, Mexico, Poland and the U.S.A.

TGOD, through its European subsidiary, HemPoland, has already signed a distribution agreement with Mediakos, a leading German pharmaceutical distributor and has had in-depth discussions with co-packers and additional distributors to continue expanding its footprint across Europe.

The Company also plans to enter the U.S. hemp CBD beverage market through existing partnerships, providing TGOD with maximum flexibility and the ability to  go to market with hemp-based CBD beverages quickly and with a capital light model.

In Canada, The Green Organic Hemp Ltd. (“TGOH”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of TGOD, has been licenced by Health Canada for the cultivation of organic hemp since 2018. TGOH grew a small test crop last year, and has successfully renewed the licence for the cultivation of a larger crop in 2019 on 158 acres of organic farmland in Southern Ontario. Planting activities are underway and the first harvest is expected within 12 weeks.

“Hemp is an incredible crop, one we can manufacture into mass market organic CBD products to establish an immediate market presence in Canada through tinctures and oils, while we prepare for the introduction of additional delivery methods such as vapes, beverages, edibles and topicals later this year,” added Athaide.

TGOH intends to supplement its own harvest with large offtake agreements from experienced Canadian organic hemp cultivators, with a potential increase to its internal production of 50,000 kgs. Wholesale hemp supply agreements have already been secured, allowing TGOH to begin domestic production of organic hemp CBD products. The Company has already signed toll processing contracts with Valens GroWorks and Neptune Wellness Solutions to quickly ramp up production volumes.

ABOUT THE GREEN ORGANIC DUTCHMAN HOLDINGS LTD.
The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX: TGOD) (US: TGODF) is a publicly traded, premium global organic cannabis company, with operations focused on medical cannabis markets in Canada, Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America, as well as the Canadian adult-use market.

$PBIO Ultra High Pressure HUB Platform Featured at World’s Largest Food Science Conference

Pressure BioSciences (OTCQB: PBIO) today announced the featuring of its HUB platform of unique, ultra-high pressure instruments in three presentations at the world’s largest annual food science conference, the Institute of Food Technologists (“IFT”), held in New Orleans, Louisiana, earlier this month. According to the update, the presentations reported the use of PBIO’s HUB440 and HUB880 Explorer systems to advance understanding of the effects of high pressure processing (“HPP”) on serious food-borne pathogens in liquid food products and ground meat, as well as the decontamination of such pathogens. “The need for safer food is a world-wide concern.  In recognition, the United Nations proclaimed June 7, 2019 as the first World Food Safety Day,” PBIO President and CEO Richard T. Schumacher said in the news release. “HPP currently plays an important role in food safety: although this unique process is barely 20 years old, it has nonetheless already grown into an estimated $20 billion market.  By 2026, the projected market size of the high pressure processing food market could reach approximately $42 billion (Visiongain, 2016).  We believe that presentations such as Dr. Fouladkhah’s at this year’s IFT Conference will help generate awareness of our new, powerful yet affordable bench-top HUB family of products in the food industry, government, military, and academic laboratory environment, and that this added exposure will result in an increased demand for our HUB equipment in this large and growing market.”
