GOLDEN, Colo., Jan. 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Panacea Life Sciences Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: PLSH) (“Panacea or PLSH” or the “Company”), a Colorado-based manufacturing, research and product development company in the natural health and wellness industry, announced today that the Company has executed a letter of intent to acquire N7 Enterprises, Inc. Pursuant to the terms of the letter of intent, Panacea would acquire all of the outstanding membership interests of N7 Enterprises in consideration for the issuance of common shares of the Company to the existing shareholders of N7 Enterprises.
N7 Enterprises operates an expanding Florida chain of kava and kratom lounges under the Lizard Juice™ and N7 Nitro Kava™ brands founded in 2012, and is also a distributor of CBD, hemp, kratom and kava related products through its New Age Distribution subsidiary, founded in 2022. For its two business segments, N7 Enterprises showed $4.1 million in revenue for the 2022 fiscal year and is estimating that net income for the year will exceed $1 million.
“Acquiring N7 Enterprises’ popular retail chain and innovative distribution business will be a significant deepening of our U.S. market penetration into the health and wellness industry and a significant leap forward for PLSH,” said Leslie Buttorff, CEO. “With this acquisition we can capture a high value business in the natural beverage retail and wholesale markets by expanding into distribution with a business plan that includes brand licensing and franchising development for all our product segments. I look forward to updating shareholders as this transaction progresses.”
Completion of the acquisition of N7 Enterprises is subject to a few conditions, including, but not limited to, completion of due diligence and negotiation of definitive documentation. The proposed acquisition is not expected to constitute a fundamental change for the Company, nor is it expected to result in a change of control of the Company within the meaning of applicable securities laws.
