NEW YORK, October 8, 2020 — — GenTech Holdings, Inc. (OTC PINK: GTEH) (“GenTech” or the “Company”), (www.gentechholdings.com) an emerging leader in the high-end Premium Coffee and Functional Foods marketplaces, is excited to announce the acquisition of Hakuna Supply/Products Group, Inc. (“Hakuna” or “Hakuna Supply”), (www.hakunasupply.com) a premier revenue-generating, award-winning CBD products company based in California with hundreds of retail distribution partners spanning more than 20 US states.
The deal is a stock-only transaction with built-in performance-based milestones. All related documents have already been signed by both parties.
GenTech CEO, David Lovatt, commented, “This acquisition drives tremendous synergies with our existing segments, Secret Javas and Sinfit, creating an ecosystem of products with overlapping end markets and low-hanging fruit as far as supply chain unit economics through vertical integration. And, in its own right, Hakuna is a best-of-breed player in the space with multiple awards, a wide variety of successful products, a broad and diverse distribution footprint, and tremendous topline growth underway over recent periods.”
Hakuna offers award-winning high-end CBD-based products, including CBD Hemp Roast Coffees, CBD Coffee Bundles, CBD Tea Bundles, CBD Drink Drops, CBD Gummies, CBD Flower, a range of premium CBD Teas, and other premium products. Hakuna also offers a range of popular accessories, including signature stash boxes, biometric lockboxes, grinders, pipes, roach clips, rolling papers, rolling trays, and stash jars.
Hakuna Supply received the DOPE Magazine Best New Product award for Southern California in the non-cannabis/non-tech category in 2017. Hakuna’s coffee has also been nominated for “Best Hemp-Derived CBD Product” by the California cannabis awards.
Hakuna is also an official distribution partner of Endocanna Health for its revolutionary consumer cannabinoid DNA test, EndoDNA, which tests an individual’s DNA to make selecting and using CBD personalized. Additionally, Hakuna’s CBD product line will be available through the Endocanna Health online marketplace, with relevant genetic matching profiles for each Hakuna product, based on individual DNA test results.
Hakuna products are also now available through the recently updated HakunaSupply.com digital marketplace.
Management notes that the global CBD market size reached $7.1 billion in 2019 according to Grand View Research, and is projected to surpass $9 billion in 2020 in total annual sales. The Company believes Hakuna is primed for strong growth in market share due to its high-quality brand, award-winning products, wide distribution, and updated digital presence, including recent strong sales growth for Hakuna products on Etsy.com.
