WEST PALM BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - February 26, 2014) - FastFunds Financial Corporation ("FastFunds" or the "Company") (OTCQB: FFFC) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Cannabis Angel, Inc., a company involved in providing financing alternatives, corporate finance and general management consulting services to early-stage cannabis companies and projects, announced today that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire 100% of the assets and certain liabilities of Green Information Systems, Inc., including its domain portfolio. The portfolio includes a five year old website that recently focused on principally green energy issues. Cannabis Angel plans to redevelop, rebrand and promote the website throughout several online media channels with a focus on the marijuana industry. 

After its relaunch, will act as a social media hub for all aspects of the ever-developing marijuana industry. Given that the marijuana industry has evolved significantly over the last few months, after its relaunch, the website will act as an interactive informational portal that will connect all major social media outlets in one place. Over the next 60 days, will be redeveloped to include interactive media news feeds, video channels, and social media sharing capabilities.

FastFunds, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Cannabis Angel, will look to capitalize on this multi-billion dollar market by allowing industry participants to communicate and share information pertaining to the marijuana industry, in real-time. Over the next several months, the relaunched website will build on this interactive platform by including an e-commerce marketplace to allow industry related merchants to showcase and sell their products and services through this online media platform. The Marketplace will allow merchants to connect their existing shopping cart, or build new electronic storefronts to showcase their products. The relaunched website intends to offer several subscription-based payment models that will suit each of its Marketplace customers based on their sales volumes and active product listings.

FastFunds will focus its efforts and resources on redeveloping the brand to become a significant online social media property that will attract the attention of third party endorsements and sponsorships relating to the marijuana industry.

Through existing online social media outlets, such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, will work towards building its base of followers amongst these outlets. FastFunds is presently developing plans to launch a viral online marketing campaign to attract further interest to the brand.
