(OTCQB: LVVV) announced today that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding to purchase a controlling interest in Apple Rush Co, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: APRU). Terms of the purchase include the payment of cash and shares, and upon completion Apple Rush Co, Inc. will be renamed LiveWire Herbaceuticals, Inc. and remain publicly traded.

"LiveWire and its partners offer a complete manufacturing solution for chews, powders, bars and drinks. We sell our chews through a strong network of distributors and retailers.
