Denver, CO, Aug. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medicine Man Technologies Inc. (OTCQB: MDCL) ("Medicine Man Technologies" or "Company"), one of the United States' leading cannabis branding and consulting companies today provided financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.
During the three months ending June 30, 2018, the Company generated revenues of $1,417,687, an increase of 535,334 or approximately 61%, compared to revenues of $882,353 in the three months ending June 30, 2017.

The increase in revenues is primarily attributable to revenue related to Cultivation Max, which began support for several operators during mid to late fiscal 2017.
The Company reported cost of goods and services totaling $380,396 during the three months ended June 30, 2018. This is compared to $272,001 during the same time period in 2017. The increase is primarily due to an increase in selling.

Operating expenses consisted of salaries expense of $454,165, professional services fees of $250,076, general and administrative expense of $73,846, officers and directors bonuses of $51,053, advertising expense of $28,395 and conference and travel related expenses of $26,584. The change is primarily attributable to a $4,480,318 charge incurred during the three months ended June 30, 2017 related to stock based compensation expenses.
The Company reported net income of $181,692 during the three months ending June 30, 2018, or approximately $0.01 per common share, compared to a net loss of $4,494,435, or approximately -$0.44 per common share, during the same time period in 2017.
“We continue to demonstrate strong revenue growth as we conclude our second consecutive profitable quarter,” Brett Roper, Medicine Man Technologies' co-founder, and CEO stated. “After considerable preparation, we are pleased to be applying to move the Company to QX status on the OTC markets, which we expect to finalize during the third quarter of 2018. This uplisting will, among other benefits, allow us to take full advantage of regulations in Colorado that allow fully reporting public companies to hold ownership of plant touching licenses in the state.”
Joshua Haupt, Medicine Man Technologies’ Chief Operating Officer stated, “We are pleased with the results, including revenue related to the successful deployment of our Cultivation MAX programs. “As we look to the second half of 2018, we expect to continue to generate meaningful revenue growth. Subsequent to the quarter end, the Company entered into a Master License Agreement with Canada House Wellness Group, for deployment of its Success Nutrients line as well as intellectual property in Canada. The initial payments for licensing totaled $4.65M (CAD) and is being paid to the Company in the form of cash ($1.15M) and Stock ($3.5M) in Canada House Wellness. We expect that his new partnership will generate significant revenues, commencing in Q3 2018. Furthermore, we have also entered a binding term sheet for the acquisition of hydroponics store in Denver, which offers a range of cultivation equipment on a competitive price basis.”
