Geopulse Exploration (dba Cannco Brands and Development) Delivers Corporate Update

November 25, 2019

Corporate, Financial, Commercial, and Development Matters Discussed

LOS ANGELES, CA, Nov. 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE – Geopulse Exploration (dba Cannco Brands and Development ) (OTCMKTS: GPLS ), a blockchain-powered logistics, financial services, and promotion solutions development company for under-serviced cannabis sector companies, today provided an update and 2020 objectives on corporate, financial, tech development, and commercial matters.

Corporate and Finance

In order to provide the financial and organizational structure to sustain our ambitious development and commercial growth plan, our immediate objectives are corporate and financial in nature.

Low-Cost Growth Capital

The Company has completed the legal, banking and compliance requirements for, and intends to launch in November, a crowdfunded offering of up to $2,000,000.

Pending release of the specific price and terms, expected later this month, we expect them to be similar to the crowdfunded raise of $750,000 with roughly 900 investors earlier in 2019 at a price of $0.10 per unit of a share and participation token (Canncoin).

Management believes the success it achieved in terms of low cost of capital in that raise will be scaled and replicated in this new offering.

We are confident in our ability to expeditiously and efficiently wrap-up this offering, also within the first half of 2020, if not in the first quarter.

We currently have roughly 1500 shareholders and are more committed than ever to accessing growth capital with the least dilution.

Gain Full Reporting Status

In other corporate matters, we intend to prioritize delivering the audited financials that will deem us current and fully reporting, a designation that will provide us with access to higher demand for our equity from a vastly larger pool of investors.

We are currently evaluating auditing firms and plan to proceed with that initiative in January, with an intention to gain current status within the first half of 2020.

Name Change

We will also be pursuing a name change from Geopulse Explorations as well as a ticker symbol change to clarify our corporate brand, an effort we plan to complete also within the first half of 2020

Product Development

Our mission is to develop and sell advanced financial, compliance and marketing products that solve debilitating business obstacles for cannabis sector companies that restrict their growth and profitability.

Our products and services are planned to include:

-- Payment Processing -- Cannabis Banking -- Business Loans -- B2B &B2C Marketplace -- Consumer Education -- Web & Mobile Solutions -- FDIC Insured Crypto Stablecoin -- Automated Compliance -- Automated Billing -- Automated Taxes -- Blockchain Transparency & Tracking -- Cannabis Branding & Marketing

Such products will benefit from the immutable documentation and tracking capabilities of blockchain technology and financial security of an asset-backed, “stablecoin” pegged to the dollar.

The benefits of this design are two-fold:

-- An asset-backed token gives potential market participants confidence they can redeem their stablecoin for cash -- A stablecoin will not change in value.

During 2019, we made important and valuable advances in the core financial features of our blockchain-based tech platform.

During this period, we completed the design of the financial system architecture that will underpin these products.

Development of the software has commenced and we intend to advance it to “alpha” or testing stage within the first quarter of 2020, with entry into beta stage, where we sign initial users, within the first half.

Key Approval Obtained

After a long period of evaluation and due diligence, in June of 2019 we were finally approved by an FDIC insured custodial trust company that will allow us to begin processing and completing transactions.

M&A

During the year, we were able to complete the acquisition of one of the first apps in the dispensary geo-location space, one with a following of over 200,000 consumers, THCFinder.com.

Our intention is to rebuild and repurpose the site and community to support the Cannco ecosystem and stakeholder community.

In June we acquired Rich Pharmaceuticals (OTMKTS: RCHA ) in order to gain us even greater financial flexibility and options.

Effect of Federal Cannabis Legalization

We are confident that given the extensive regulation and compliance requirements in place at state levels and the need for provenance and supply chain tracking and specialized banking and merchant processing, we expect a removal of cannabis as a Federal Schedule 1 Controlled Substance, will have limited effect on the demand for our services.

Summary

The importance of Cannco’s platform will be its facilitation of interactivity and reduced friction between retail brands, growers, consumers, financial institutions, and regulatory agencies.

We are pleased with our progress during 2019 and we look forward to growing our value as we develop our platform and ramp commercial activity in 2020.
