VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via InvestorWire -- Sprout AI Inc. (CSE: SPRT) (“Sprout AI” or the “Company”), a leading vertical farming technology company, is pleased to announce the appointment of its global marketing team.

Sprout AI has selected MarketOne and Generation IACP Inc. (GIACP) to assist its investor relations (IR) program.

MarketOne has been appointed to provide its marketing and social media expertise to support Sprout AI’s marketing initiatives. The Company has signed a contract for services to be provided over a 12-month period commencing September 2021 and will pay a flat fee of C$130,000, plus applicable taxes, during the Initial Term. MarketOne is arm’s length to the Company and does not currently own any securities of the Company.

Generation IACP Inc. has been hereby appointed, subject to the receipt of approval by the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) and in compliance with the policies and guidelines of the CSE and other applicable legislation, that on a nonexclusive basis they will provide market-making services with the objective of maintaining a reasonable market and improving the liquidity of Sprout AI shares.

Sprout AI and Generation are unrelated and unaffiliated entities. Generation is a member of the Investment Industry Regulation Organization of Canada and a member firm of the Toronto Stock Exchange and the TSX-V, Canadian Securities Exchange and the NEO exchange. The initial term of the Generation agreement will last six months at a cost of CAD$7,500 per month, payable per quarter and renewable at the discretion of the Company.

In addition to the above, Sprout AI has also selected the use of one of the most powerful investor relations software made for modern investor relations (IR) teams. This platform will then integrate seamlessly with Sprout AI’s existing enterprise resource planning and compliance (ERPc) software, known as One System One Solution (OS2). This platform, together with additional IR services, will cost on average US$5,500 per month.

The total capital spend on this combined program will remain well below British Columbia Securities Commission’s recommended 20% of operational costs.
