TokeIt Technologies Inc. Partnership and Partial Acquisition Discussion
Further to the news release on May 24th, 2018 regarding the TokeIt Technologies Inc. ("TokeIt") partnership and partial acquisition, ParcelPal wishes to reiterate what TokeIt is, what the agreement consisted of, and the benefits for ParcelPal.
TokeIt is a technology company that operates a B2B point of sale software specifically designed for the marijuana industry which focuses on supply chain integrations in dispensaries, distribution centres, and licensed producers. The technology directly integrates with both physical storefronts and online dispensaries and processes all financial transactions through the system. TokeIt´s ecosystem of technology includes debit and credit payment processing, customer verification, invoicing and purchase order generation, "down to the gram" inventory management, and human resource management capabilities with live track and trace store performance metrics.
TokeIt is provincially and federally compliant with current legislation and only partners with complying businesses and dispensaries. The technology itself is robust and services the entire supply chain - from LP, to distribution, to brick and mortar, and now finally to the consumer. ParcelPal is the last puzzle piece for TokeIt as together they extend their reach from seed-to-last mile.
The transaction consisted of the following value-added benefits for ParcelPal:
- TokeIt currently has approximately 50 signed dispensaries in ParcelPal´s delivery zones, which will go live for delivery within the coming months.
- Each dispensary on average has revenues of approximately $250,000 per month, of which all transactions are processed through the TokeIt platform.
- Exclusive North America wide delivery rights for all TokeIt merchants and clientele.
- Access and rights to all consumer data; totaling 15,000+ users on the platform. These users will be driven onto the ParcelPal platform for marijuana delivery.
- Exclusive use and ownership of all TokeIt´s technology (source code) for use in additional verticals (grocery, food, alcohol, etc.). Saving ParcelPal an exorbitant amount of capital to develop.
- This strategic partnership saves ParcelPal capital on sales and implementation staff, business development, research and development, and will greatly lower customer acquisition costs.
- First right of refusal on all financings henceforth.
The agreement consisted of the partnership and partial acquisition of 8% of TokeIt Technologies, Inc. for $250,000 at a valuation at $3,000,000. TokeIt´s current valuation is approximately $5,000,000.
