March 26, 2019 – Vancouver, B.C. – The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTC:BOSQF) (Frankfurt: YG3) announces Mad Wallaby Distribution Inc. as a new, wholly owned subsidiary which has been submitted for incorporation in the State of California. Mad Wallaby establishes legal U.S. retail and e-commerce distribution for beauty, health and wellness brands with products containing hemp ingredients including cannabidiol from hemp (CBD) that have less than 0.3 percent concentrations of THC.
Drawing on the immediate product development, technology, manufacturing and retail management experience of the Yield Growth leadership team, the company is uniquely positioned to offer businesses affordable market intelligence and pave the sales path required to capitalize on this unique growing sector.
“Establishing Mad Wallaby to create U.S. distribution channels for CBD products is an exciting, natural step for Yield Growth,” says Penny Green, Yield Growth CEO, “As we are seeing now with the American national drugstore chain CVS for example, shelf space for these products is expanding quickly in relation to strong consumer interest and increasing market demand. Adherence to the complex and evolving laws surrounding these products remains important and represents our trusted distinction as a distributing partner for both emerging brands and the established retailers they seek to supply.”
A recent estimate from cannabis industry analysts the Brightfield Group indicates the international hemp-CBD market could hit $22-billion by 2022.
Mad Wallaby plans to build an initial distribution portfolio of 10 brands, including Yield Growth’s own Urban Juve and a Mad Wallaby CBD product line in development– that meet its standards for quality and the legal requirements for products containing hemp pursuant to the U.S. Farm Bill and other applicable regulations. Starting in the Western States, Mad Wallaby’s core services include distribution, legal analysis, marketing, B2B sales and e-commerce support for brands. Mad Wallaby will charge a distribution fee as a percentage of sales plus fees for added services. Yield Growth has built a sophisticated e-commerce platform to sell the Urban Juve product line, which is expected to launch next month. Mad Wallaby can leverage the same technology to distribute other CBD products online.
Thrive Activations, another wholly owned subsidiary of Yield Growth, has been successful in providing incubation services for new ventures, including technology development and marketing support, and generated more than $1,000,000 in revenues in Fiscal 2018, all of which was paid in cash, not stock.
