VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Jan. 30, 2017) - Calyx Bio-Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CYX) ("Calyx" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on its ongoing business operations and the development of its industry leading technology platform for mass communications and collaboration.
Highlights of the Company's recent developments include:
- Generated approximately $100,000 in revenue for the twelve months ended December 31, 2016, an increase of several hundred percent when compared to revenues during the same period in 2015.
- Acquired a new software platform to integrate with and provide additional functionality to the Company's existing compliance and collaboration platform.
- Current growth rates suggest that the Company could achieve positive monthly cash flow by the end of 2017.
- Raised a total of $650,000 through equity financing.
In addition, the last few months has seen the external environment shifting dramatically. Eight states representing 22% of the United States population voted to regulate the production and sale of cannabis, potentially opening up new markets for LEAFHub of an estimated 10 million regular cannabis consumers now residing in states with medical or recreational cannabis laws.
"We are very pleased with the recent achievements and growth trajectory that Calyx is currently experiencing," stated Roger Forde, President and Chief Executive Officer of Calyx. "We are in the midst of an exciting stage in this rapidly expanding industry, with new regulations and studies making cannabis more widely accepted than ever before. Calyx is confident that it is ideally positioned to leverage the numerous opportunities within the expanding legal cannabis market. We are committed to executing on our strategy, adding users and features to our best-in-class technology platform to drive adoption and take a leading position in the sector."

In addition to Calyx's portfolio of proprietary intellectual property with applications in crop enhancement, its wholly-owned subsidiary, Cannigistics Agri-Solutions Corp., is a software development company that has created a software platform tailored to advanced indoor agriculture. The Cannigistics software platform is designed to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of indoor agricultural operations, and positions Cannigistics to be the industry leader in agri-software solutions by providing businesses with advanced controls over all aspects of their operations. Recent upgrades have also generated interest in the software platform from outside the agriculture industry which could potentially provide additional areas of growth for the Company.
