SinglePoint Receives $1.2 Million in Funding With Option to Raise a Total of $4 Million
SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/11/17 -- SinglePoint, Inc. (OTC: SING) announces the completion of a $4 Million round of funding, $1.2 Million of which has already been collected including $600,000 of which came from United American HealthCare Corp (OTC: UAHC). With this new round of funding, SinglePoint is positioned to aggressively develop and complete its Bitcoin Payments solution and acquire additional companies in the cannabis space.
SinglePoint's Bitcoin Payments solution directly addresses the challenges of the "unbanked" cannabis industry, which is hampered by federal regulations that have significantly cramped banking options.
The capital also enables SinglePoint to accelerate its revenue-by-acquisition strategy, which in the last nine months alone has resulted in the investment or acquisition of three cannabis companies. SinglePoint now has the resources needed to pursue larger acquisition targets to capture its share of the legal cannabis industry, which is on track to exceed $20 billion by 2025 with a compound annual growth rate of 29%.
"After months of negotiation, we are beyond excited to close this deal and go after some larger deals that we have in our pipeline. Having this capital, along with access to additional capital if needed, puts us in a strong negotiating position. Acquiring other businesses for cash and stock is working well for us, and enables us to infuse some cash to jumpstart the growth of our acquired companies and give the businesses tremendous upside on the stock side, as they successfully execute their business plan," states SinglePoint CEO Greg Lambrecht.
SinglePoint is close to finalizing the previously announced LOI (http://nnw.fm/gIi1C), which will strengthen the Company's financials and set SinglePoint on a $1 million revenue run-rate over the course of the next year. In addition to this potential acquisition, SinglePoint is in negotiations with other companies operating in the cannabis tech market, as well as e-commerce sites in the industry.
