HOLLYWOOD, Calif., July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Medbox, Inc. (OTC Markets: MDBX) (www.medboxinc.com), a leader in providing industry specific consulting services and patented systems to the medical and retail industries, announced completion of its quarterly financial review by its Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) registered auditing firm.
The company now has all that is needed to re-file a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission and it plans on doing so by next Monday. The filing will also include answers to comments posed by the SEC upon a prior filing. Based on the company's belief that it will adequately address any prior comments by the SEC within the re-filed registration statement, Medbox management anticipates the filing will be deemed effective within the 3rd quarter of this year.
"I am extremely pleased with our progress to date," stated Vincent Mehdizadeh, Chief Operations Officer of Medbox, Inc. "We are light years ahead in all phases on being a transparent company, and the standard for all companies operating in the medical marijuana ancillary service industry to emulate. We take pride in that role and relish the opportunity to bring value to shareholders and provide excellent service to our clients. Although the medical marijuana industry is not our only target market and we have developed products and services geared at traditional pharmaceuticals, regulating how medical marijuana is dispensed is still our focus and we feel that niche market is in its infancy."
