Textmunication Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: TXHD) (“the Company”), a cloud-based communication technology holding company, announced today that it plans to change its business direction from its current SMS technology business to focus entirely on the emerging national cannabis market.
Sales of legal cannabis in the U.S. amounted to nearly $10 billion in 2018 and are forecasted by Grand View Research to reach $55 billion by 2025. The Company plans to acquire assets and existing businesses in the cannabis space that will allow the Company to build a brand focused, seed-to-sale, vertically-integrated organization centered around the “wellness lifestyle,” and offer to consumers a family of trusted products that address both the fast growing cannabis market as well as the $4.2 trillion dollar wellness market (Global Wellness Institute). In the coming days and weeks, the Company plans to provide more details concerning the disposition of its SMS technology business, identifying acquisitions and establishing strategic initiatives in line with its new business focus.
To achieve these new objectives the Company plans to expand its management team to include experienced cannabis product development and marketing executives.
Wais Asefi, Chief Executive Officer of Textmunication, stated, “We believe that the greatest value creation in this new and burgeoning cannabis market will be the development of trusted brands with control of their supply chain ensuring consistent quality and healthy margins. The evolution of this expanding market, a market that is opening up to millions of new customers nationwide, will require our management team to focus on education, science and product development. To that end we are currently recruiting a world class team, identifying brands and building partnerships to execute a singular Wellness Lifestyle strategy.”
