NEVADA: Freedom Leaf, the successful publishing and licensing company behind the legal cannabis industry, has quickly reached important revenue-driving milestones in Spain and The Netherlands in its international branding effort.
The advocacy media company has drawn interest from overseas licensees seeking access to its brand, its editorial content, ability to put on events, along with premium products and services under its banner. “We’re a magnet to attract mergers and acquisitions, incubation of new companies and spinoffs,” said Cliff Perry, Freedom Leaf CEO, “Our news, media, entertainment platforms and other properties raise awareness for investors and seed more potential deal flow.”
Both the Spain and Netherlands licensees have agreed to pay Freedom Leaf Inc. $250,000 each for the right to provide exclusive licensees for the use of the Freedom Leaf Brand and the right to publish Freedom Leaf Magazine in Spanish and Dutch and sell advertising abroad. The deals include public relations, business consulting, brand services, business development and incubation support for cannabis and hemp companies in the Netherlands and Spain. Both countries obtained rights to put on Freedom Leaf music festivals and educational seminars. The licensees in The Netherlands and Spain will also reach out to other potential partners across Europe.
Freedom Leaf’s success in Europe comes after the launch of the Freedom Leaf Cup in April as a part of the Viña Grow Awards at the 21st annual Viña Rock 2016 Music Festival which was attended by 200,000 spectators, in the town of Villarrobledo in Albacete, Spain.
Freedom Leaf, Inc. is in talks to license its brand, products and services in three additional International markets. “The negotiations continue to be very positive,” Perry said. “We’re in discussions with additional companies in what promises to be a meaningful endeavor to speed our growth.” The license will allow licensees to market and publish Freedom Leaf Magazine in their countries, while offering website advertising, products, business and consulting services, seminars, musical festivals and other branded products and services, while also undertaking Public Relations, Business Consulting, Branding Services, Business Development and Incubation for the Cannabis/Hemp companies in their territories under the Freedom Leaf umbrella.
“I’m pleased with our success in rapidly bringing in two new European licensees,” said Cliff Perry, Publisher and CEO of Freedom Leaf, Inc. “We’ve added overseas clients at a much faster rate than anticipated and we are currently reviewing other inquires for International expansion of our brand. The company is only two years old and we have earned the credibility to attract overseas licensees. A great feat in such a short time period.”
