MediSwipe, Inc. Announces Corporate Name Change to “AgriTek Holdings, Inc.” in Conjunction with Expansion of Business Model
Trading to Begin at Open of Market on May 20, 2014, Under New Symbol “AGTK”
LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired – May 20, 2014) - MediSwipe, Inc. (www.MediSwipe.com) (MWIP), a fully reporting company on the OTCQB, a leader in the Compassionate Care Industry which provides business banking solutions and wellness products to the medicinal marijuana sector today announced that, effective today, its corporate name will change from MediSwipe Inc. to “Agritek Holdings, Inc.” The company’s shares will start trading under its new name and stock ticker symbol, “AGTK”, effective as of market open on May 20th, 2014. The company’s common stock has been assigned a new CUSIP number of 00856J103 in connection with the name change. Outstanding stock certificates are not affected by the name change and will not need to be exchanged.
B. Michael Friedman, CEO of Agritek Holdings, Inc. stated “Over the course of the last several months, we have undertaken a thorough evaluation of our business strategy within the medicinal cannabis sector, with an eye toward increasing shareholder value. As part of this process, we have sought additional capital, eliminated bad debt and have implemented organizational and personnel changes. Our recent land acquisitions and leases of real estate and agricultural property management in Colorado and Florida as well as our trademarked brand “Mont Blunt” vaporizers and e-cigarettes as separate divisions represent significant importance to our overall business strategy. With multiple revenue streams in several different areas of the sector, we felt the name of “Agritek Holdings” will more completely define and provide greater recognition of who we are within this industry,
“It is my belief we have been both defined and limited by our name MediSwipe, and identified only to the financial processing side of this sector which in fact is only a piece of the true value of our Company. Our plan is to have MediSwipe become a subsidiary under Agritek Holdings, continuing our banking and merchant processing services and utilizing the brand name while separating the business results. We expect MediSwipe to contribute to Agritek’s overall success. With the right team and the right product offerings now in place, we are now poised to execute on the near-term opportunities that will provide the foundation for our future growth and success. We look forward to starting this new chapter and are proud to do so under a new name that completely reflects our mission and value within the sector, ”further stated Friedman.
