All shareholders will receive a dividend share once the S-1 registration statement is filed. A record date is expected to be announced once the name change is approved by regulators from Agritek Holdings, Inc. to “iBet Gaming Corporation,” stated B. Michael Friedman, CEO of Agritek Holdings, Inc.
"The additional $500,000 capital infusion by our institutional investor and $5,000,000 equity facility to be registered, will allow the Company to secure a successful transition and long-term equity commitment for our move into the emerging eSports entertainment sector. The Company will seek to use this commitment to discontinue its past reliance on convertible debentures, as a far more favorable corporate financing for the Company and its shareholders in an effort to restore the Company’s stock price back to more attractive levels as we have seen in recent weeks,” Friedman added.
