Appiphany Technologies Holdings Announces Anticipated Name Change in Connection With New Industry Direction

January 21, 2020 GMT

Salt Lake City, UT - ( NewMediaWire ) - January 21, 2020 - Appiphany Technologies Holdings Corp. (OTC: APHD) announced today it is in the process of changing its name and its stock symbol amid a shift in the industry focus of the Company.

Under the direction of Scott Cox, the recently named Chief Executive Officer and Director, the Company will be transitioning into the Hemp Industry. Mr. Cox is a seasoned executive and entrepreneur with a track record of success in the domestic and global cannabis industry and more than 20 years in management and operations of public companies.

The Company’s proposed new name will be Verde Bio Holdings, Inc., which is intended to better embody the Company’s new focus. The Company will seek to increase value of the Company through strategic acquisitions, joint ventures and investments in the cultivation, processing and distribution of hemp and hemp related products. The new stock symbol will be announced once approved by FINRA.

The Company is also pleased to announce it has retained E&E Communications (www.eandecommunications.com) to assist with investor and public relations. “We are pleased to assist a Company with a strong successful leader, involved in a sector realizing enormous growth, and we look forward to discussing this opportunity with investors and potential investors,” said Paul Knopick, E & E Communications President.

“The hemp industry is currently a multi-million dollar sector, growing exponentially, and we are establishing Verde Bio Holdings to respond to opportunities in this sector including bridging the gap between the hemp industry’s need for capital and the industry’s limited access to the larger capital markets,” Mr. Cox said. “We believe it is perfect timing for this venture and are excited about the opportunities in the industry.”

The Company recently filed a Schedule 14C with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. It is available by contacting E&E Communications.
