Agritek Holdings, Inc. Announces Update on Filing of Form 10-K Report and First Quarter Results for 2019 with New Application to OTCQB
Los Angeles, CA - (NewMediaWire) - May 03, 2019 - Agritek Holdings, Inc. (OTC: AGTK) www.AgritekHoldings.com, a fully integrated, active cannabis real estate investor and brand licensor for the cannabis sector in the United States and Canada, today announced that the Company’s 10K annual report is expected to be filed within the next three trading days. The Company’s first quarter report ending March 31st for 2019 is also expected to be timely filed by May 15th. The extension of time was due to unanticipated delays in compiling financial reports and other data that were deemed necessary in preparing and completing the financial statements. These delays are related to the additional procedures and processes that the Company is undertaking to ensure that its financial statements are fairly and accurately presented after its recapitalization of the Company on March 26, 2019.
Agritek Holdings CEO Neil Mundie, the Company’s Principal Executive Officer, commented: “I am pleased to announce the filing of our annual report for 2018 within the next few days followed by our first quarter results for 2019. The Company ran into significant headwinds that caused it to be late with its annual report for last year, including the appointment of our new board of directors and CFO team at the start of the audit process, our corporate restructure, as well as the resulting difficulties arising from the settlement of arbitration and further consolidation and computation of our debt holder's financings. Although this process took more time than anyone wanted or expected, I believe the end result will be more streamlined and efficient accounting process for future filings.”
“The audit is substantially completed, but our auditor requires additional time to complete their final review procedures and deliver their audit opinion. The Company does not expect to disclose any material weaknesses with regard to 2018 when its 10-K is filed. Further, we plan to begin the application process immediately to return back to the OTCQB once compliant with our filings in order to raise favorable capital for the future expansion and success of our existing operations in Colorado, California and Puerto Rico,” further stated Mundie.
