Providence, RI, July 06, 2021 (Globalrelease Wire) — Real Brands Inc. (OTCPK: RLBD) has filed a Form 10 with the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) as its final step to becoming a fully compliant reporting publicly traded company. As part of the compliance and reporting process, Real Brands also completed two years of audited financial records, appointed outside independent directors to its Board of Directors, and created an audit committee composed of three independent directors.
“Becoming a fully compliant, audited reporting company is a major milestone for Real Brands, as it provides the information and transparency into the company’s business and finances that should make it more attractive to a broader array of potential investors, shareholders, clients, vendors and business associates,” stated Thom Kidrin, Real Brands’ President and CEO. “This should also make it easier to raise capital on favorable terms to fund our growth — a win for our employees, shareholders and customers.”
Kidrin added, “The October 2020 strategic merger between Canadian American Standard Hemp (CASH Inc.) and Real Brands was designed to drive increased shareholder value and provide the public with an opportunity to participate in the growing global hemp-derived CBD market. Our completion of compliant reporting requirements is just one more step toward reaching these objectives. As we continue to execute our strategy since the merger, we have seen the stock price increase approximately threefold in what was arguably a less than optimal business environment. As supply chains and consumer activities return to normal, we anticipate more streamlined access to biomass and increased production for improved business performance.”
Members of Real Brands’ Board of Directors have extensive C-level management experience at highly respected public and private corporations.
“We are fortunate to have a Board of Directors with a stellar track record of success across multiple industries, from taking start-ups to IPO or acquisition, to leading major corporations,” Kidrin noted. “We thank them for their willingness to share their knowledge and expertise and guide us in strategic decision making as we explore plans to grow Real Brands’ multiple business areas and lay the groundwork to an expected move to a listed exchange.”
