DENVER, May 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MassRoots, Inc. (OTCQB: MSRT), a leading technology platform for the medical cannabis industry, is pleased to announce the Company has filed its quarterly report with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for the quarter ending March 31, 2017. With more than $5.6 million in assets, the Company has its strongest balance sheet in corporate history and currently has no long-term debt.
During the first quarter of 2017, the Company achieved cash-flow positive status, with a net cash inflow of $1.8M, and retired all outstanding convertible debt. Additionally, the exercise of warrants resulted in a significant reduction in the Company's derivative liabilities. MassRoots also formed a strategic relationship through an investment in the cannabis media powerhouse, High Times.
"We're pleased with the significant improvement in the Company's fundamentals we experienced during the first quarter," stated MassRoots CEO Mr. Isaac Dietrich. "Our core objective for the balance of the year is continuing to better monetize our user-base and deliver more value to our clients."
Apart from improvements to its financial position, MassRoots crossed one million registered users in March 2017, making it one of the largest online communities of cannabis enthusiasts. Shortly after reaching this milestone, the Company announced the launch of its celebrity influencer program to help accelerate MassRoots' user-growth towards 2 million users and formed a strategic partnership with Whoopi & Maya, co-founded by the legendary Whoopi Goldberg.
Additionally, MassRoots announced data-oriented partnerships with notable cannabis technology companies, New Frontier Data and Grownetics, and could provide some of the most advanced analytics and reporting available in the cannabis industry. The Company launched a web browser-based version of its popular application in March. Throughout the coming weeks, MassRoots plans to launch an updated and rebranded version of its mobile application for both Android and iOS devices. This app update will be the result of significant investment of resources during the first quarter in improving MassRoots' infrastructure to support an increasing number of users and paying down technical debt.
"We thank our shareholders for their continued trust in MassRoots as we continue to execute on our strategic business objectives," concluded Mr. Dietrich. "We look forward to sharing some exciting developments and reporting back on our progress over the coming weeks."
