VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sunniva Inc. (“Sunniva” or the “Company”), (CSE: SNN) (OTCQX: SNNVF) today announced that it has retained KCSA Strategic Communications (“KCSA”), a leading New York-based communications firm, to support the Company’s strategic communications and investor relations efforts in the United States.
KCSA will employ a comprehensive communications program designed to increase awareness of Sunniva across the investment community and among key financial media in the U.S. Since KCSA’s inception nearly fifty years ago, the firm has developed a reputation for its innovative and dedicated work representing public companies, and, most recently, has become one of the leading communications firms within the emerging cannabis industry.
“We are pleased to have retained KCSA, a top New York PR/IR firm that represents some of the largest cannabis companies,” said Dr. Anthony Holler, Chairman and CEO of Sunniva. “We are rapidly moving forward with our efforts to strategically position Sunniva as a vertically-integrated cannabis company in both Canada and California as we pursue growth opportunities. In California, we are now in position to leverage our world class cultivation and extraction assets to quickly move up the value integration chain by launching Sunniva brands in all major product categories and expanding our distribution and retail dispensary footprint. It is an opportune time to begin sharing our strategic business model and ongoing progress with the investment community. KCSA has the experience and expertise to most effectively reach our target audience and we are excited to partner with them as we move ahead.”
Phil Carlson, Managing Director of KCSA Strategic Communications said, “Sunniva has developed the foundation to become a prominent player in the very competitive cannabis industry with a first mover advantage in California. Sunniva has spent the last year constructing their large scale 325,000 sq. ft purpose-built greenhouse facility in California which will soon provide a unique opportunity for Sunniva to successfully expand into a number of upstream vertical markets that are demonstrating significant growth. We are very excited to share the Sunniva story and demonstrate its position as a large-scale cannabis cultivator, extractor, house of brands and distributor and retailer of today’s most trusted high-quality, cannabis products.”
