ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - Mar 15, 2013) - Kalahari Greentech Inc. (PINKSHEETS: KHGT) (Kalahari, or the Company) is pleased to announce that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Honeymark International, LLC (Honeymark), an importer of Manuka Honey and a distributor of natural Manuka Honey products. Manuka Honey is a special type of honey that contains plant-derived, phytochemical components that may be used to promote health and wellness. All Honeymark products contain active Manuka Honey from New Zealand and other natural ingredients. Due to its antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties, Manuka honey is being viewed by many as a versatile and effective treatment for internal conditions such as stomach ulcers, acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, gastrointestinal disorders, and externally for wound care, diabetic foot ulcers, acne, bacterial and fungal infections. Honeymark sells numerous variations of Manuka Honey, Manuka Honey Capsules, First Aid Antiseptic Lotion, Acne Cream, Anti-Itch Cream, Anti-Fungal Cream, Anti-Wrinkle Serum, Manuka Honey Bar Soap, Liquid Hand Soap, Antiseptic Spray, and many other types of personal and first aid products. Its products are sold online, as well as through retailers and distributors.
Frank Buonanotte, President and CEO of Honeymark International said, "Honey has been used for medical purposes for thousands of years, prior to the advent of modern medicine. Our Honeymark brand of products has become widely accepted as consumers seek refuge in natural alternatives to treat a wide spectrum of medical ailments." Mr. Buonanotte continued, "From the day we started Honeymark, we offered our customers what we believe is the best product on the market. Being part of a public company, like Kalahari Greentech, will allow us an opportunity to fill our backlog of orders and expand the sale of our Manuka honey based products."
Kalahari Greentech CEO, David Kugelman, stated, "We believe this definitive agreement with Honeymark International is an exciting event for our shareholders. According to the Natural Foods Merchandiser's 2012 Market Overview, nationwide sales of all natural and organic products jumped 10 percent to nearly $91 billion last year. We believe there are opportunities for Honeymark's products both in the U.S. and internationally."
The definitive agreement calls for Kalahari to acquire the interest in all assets of Honeymark International including, but not limited to, the URL www.honeymarkproducts.com, as well as the exclusive rights of Honeymark in the importation and distribution of Manuka Honey. Following the proposed acquisition, Honeymark International will become a subsidiary of Kalahari Greentech.
