Organization and Description of Business



MariMed Inc., (the “Company”), a Delaware corporation, is a professional management company in the emerging medical 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 dispensing of legal cannabis and cannabis-infused products. Along with this operational oversight, the Company provides its clients with legal, accounting, human resources, and other corporate and administrative services.


In addition, the Company licenses and distributes a custom brand of cannabis-infused products, under the brand name Kalm Fusion™, which are precision-dosed and designed for specific medical conditions and related symptoms. In 2017, the Company expanded its product line with the acquisition of the Betty’s Eddies™ brand of cannabis-infused fruit chews,


The Company’s stock is quoted on the OTCQB market under the ticker symbol MRMD.


The Company was originally incorporated in January 2011 under the name Worlds Online Inc., using the ticker symbol WORX. In early 2017, the Company name and ticker were changed to its current name and ticker. 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 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, (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.
