Organization and Description of Business



MariMed Inc., formerly Worlds Online Inc. (the “Company”), is an industry leader in the emerging cannabis industry. The Company advises its clients in securing cannabis licenses, and in turn, develops and manages state-of-the-art, regulatory-compliant facilities for the cultivation, production, and dispensary of legal cannabis. In addition, the Company has created a brand of precision-dosed cannabis infused products which are licensed and distributed nationally. The Company’s stock is quoted on the OTC QB market under the ticker symbol MRMD, formerly WORX.


The Company was originally incorporated in January 2011 in the state of Delaware. Since inception, the Company has operated an online portal that offers multi-user virtual environments to users. This segment of the business has had insignificant operations since early 2014.


In May 2014, the Company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary MariMed Advisors Inc. (“MMA”), acquired Sigal Consulting LLC in exchange for (i) an aggregate amount of the Company’s common stock equal to 50% of the Company’s outstanding shares on the closing date of September 29, 2014, (ii) options to purchase three million shares of the Company’s common stock, exercisable over five years with exercise prices ranging from $0.15 to $0.35, and (iii) a 49% ownership interest in MMA.


This transaction was accounted for as a purchase acquisition where the Company was both the legal and accounting acquirer. Accordingly, the Company recorded as goodwill the value of the common stock and options issued in excess of the Sigal assets acquired and liabilities assumed. This goodwill was subsequently deemed impaired in full and written down to zero.


In June 2017, the Company acquired the remaining 49% interest in MMA in exchange for 75 million shares of common stock.
