Some of the change in public perception has proven itself productive during this election cycle, when more states have voted in favor of cannabis legalization for recreational use, including in the state of California, the largest cannabis market, where previously only medical use was legal. Canada is expected to take measures to legalize cannabis for recreational use later this year. A new research by CIBC World Markets claims legalizing marijuana in Canada could create a $10 billion annual industry, as reported by Global News.
Invictus MD Strategies Corp. (OTC: IVITF) (CSE: IMH.CN) targets cannabis companies with proven brands, strong customer focus, and significant growth potential. The company provides capital to meet these objectives and also years of management experience. Invictus MD works in partnership with management teams to increase shareholder value through business planning and process integration, developing and executing growth strategies, leveraging experience and relationships, and structuring and deploying the proper capital to support long-term growth.
On January 26th, Chairman and CEO of Invictus MD Dan Kriznic provided an update to shareholders, "2016 was a transformational year for Invictus MD. The Company's majority interest in Future Harvest Development Ltd. ("FHD"), initially purchased in February 2015, has performed exceptionally well. FHD produced record sales in 2016 as the burgeoning market for commercial hydroponics products continued to show an appetite for FHD's unique lines of nutrients and equipment. Despite 50% year over year sales growth in 2016, the company is confident that FHD's best growth is still ahead. The timely acquisition of a bottling line and exceptional performance and leadership of key hires are leading an expansion into the fertilization sector, where key growth opportunities have been identified. Under the direction of Chris Pearson and newly hired research consultant from the University of British Colombia Dr. Paul Shipley, and head bioengineer Justin Pearson, FHD's Plant Life Products and Holland Secret brands are successfully competing for and winning fertilizer market share. The fertilizer brands, along with the continuing success of companion metering product Grow Boss is earning the company a significant and growing position in the commercial hydroponics market.
The sale of FHD's Sunblaster lighting line for $4.8 million in cash allowed the company the opportunity to issue a $0.07/ share dividend in December 2016 to Invictus MD shareholders for a total of approximately $1 million. The company remains committed to identifying undervalued cannabis industry assets and delivering that value to the shareholders."
