Commencing New Business Direction
Baton Rouge, Louisiana – October 29, 2019 — — Rogue Station Companies, Inc. (OTC: RGST) announced the acquisition of the Oregon based cannabis company was effectively terminated on October 1, 2019. Subsequently, the Company has appointed John Conroy as CEO and Chairman of the Board and the Company has relocated its’ base of operations to Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Mr. Conroy commented, “This wasn’t the move I anticipated at the end of last year but one which has become necessary as we continue to explore opportunities in the cannabis space. Mr. Keeler will remain as COO because of his expertise in cannabis operations and will continue to serve on the Board.
Subsequently, the Investment Banking and Consulting Agreement with South Beach Live has been terminated and the 15 million shares of common stock have been deposited back into the company’s treasury.
On October 16, 2019 the Company entered into a Letter of Intent to acquire 100% of Brahman LLC, d/b/a Terpp Extractors, a Fort Collins, Colorado-based manufacturer of cannabis processing equipment.
Terpp Extractors has been a leading manufacturer of Closed Loop Systems used in processing cannabis concentrates by hydrocarbon extraction since 2015. The company has an impeccable reputation of supplying extremely high quality, safe extraction equipment to a global market at an affordable price, with a focus on safe operation, over-engineered quality and a high yield design. By the end of 2016, Terpp Extractors was awarded the 25th spot on the CBE Top 100 List of ancillary businesses making equipment that can be used in the concentrate essential oils industry.
Mr Conroy stated, “When you analyze the various revenue trends within the cannabis industry, the one segment out pacing them all is extraction/processing and this trend is expected to continue. Extraction and processing is the process of taking cannabis or hemp and extracting the highly concentrated cannabis or CBD oils. An article published in Grizzle.com (https://grizzle.com/cannabis-extraction-industry-guide/ ) further illustrates this expanding segment and its critical role in the cannabis industry. The acquisition of Terpp Extractors, Inc puts us directly on the supply side of that market space. As the demand for extraction equipment increases, Terpp Extractors will be positioned to meet that demand. It is a great opportunity for Rogue Station Companies, Inc. and one that will enable us to continue and expand the founder’s vision of Terpp Extractors.”
Chief Operating Officer Robert Keeler, stated, “Extraction and related services is among the fastest growing segment of the cannabis business in the US. Terpp Extractors has developed premier products that are well respected in the extraction community. Our team brings operational expertise and marketing skills to their great products.”
Lori Hainkel, Brahman’s Managing Member, added, “Many of our customers and competitors struggle with scaling in the current state-by-state cannabis regulatory regime. Our products work everywhere and we expect to build deep relationships in each place where consumers seek the quality concentrates we make possible. We appreciate the opportunity to capitalize on our contacts and reputation to expand into larger scale extraction equipment and installations.”
