Weyland Tech (WEYL) Enters Into Strategic Licensing Agreement For Thailand Market

Hong Kong, China- September 6, 2016 — Weyland Tech Inc. (OTCQB: WEYL) (“Weyland Tech” or the “Company”), a provider of mobile business applications announces that it has signed a strategic licensing agreement with BGT Corporation Public Company Limited (“BGT”), for the Thai market.

BGT owns the rights to Body Glove, founded in 1953, in Redondo Beach, California. BGT distributes men’s & women’s sport and casual wears and wetsuits in Thailand and ASEAN countries such as Myanmar, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and the Philippines. The company has 149 company owned locations in Thailand alone and was listed on the Thailand Stock Exchange in 2007. Body Glove Thailand’s website is http://www.bodyglove.co.th/.  BGT, in 2013, established BGT Technology in order to distribute electronic devices and other related accessories under trademarks of Wolfeye, Moontech and Boost.

BGT Technology intends to utilize the Weyland Tech CreateApp platform for BGT’s m-Commerce app as well as provide a ‘branded app’ to other industries in Thailand.

Mr. Dickson Goh, CEO of BGT, commented that “As of December 2015, according to the Thailand Telecom Industry Database, Thailand had 83 million mobile subscribers, 5.4 million fixed-line telephone customers and 39.4 million internet users. Thailand is ASEAN’s second largest smartphone market. With 60,000 mobile developers, Thailand’s mobile app market is ranked third in Southeast Asia, after Indonesia and Vietnam. Thailand and its neighboring countries still lack an application platform like Createapp Technology that we are going to implement. Thus, our company is confident that CreateApp Platform will be a successful business in the next 2-3 years. Thailand has 2.8 million SMBs. Those SMBs and start-ups still need an application platform to grow their business and increase revenue.”

Weyland Tech’s CreateApp platform is focused on the Asia markets. WEYL’s CreateApp platform is offered in 12 languages and enables small-medium-sized businesses (“SMB’s”) to create a mobile application (“APP”) without the need of technical knowledge and background.

ADVANTAMEDS RECEIVES US SEC APPROVAL ON ITS $50M Convertible Preferred Share OFFERING

Chicago, IL- September 1, 2016- AdvantaMeds Solutions USA Fund 1, Inc. (“AdvantaMeds”) a cannabis Corporation, announces that it has received US SEC staff approval on its $50M Convertible Preferred Share offering.  The Company appears to be the first ever preferred share offering approved for a cannabis operation.

Management now can seek qualified investors and investment representatives on placing the proceeds of this preferred share offering.

Preferred share proceeds enable AdvantaMeds to grow operations with the construction of potentially the largest fully licensed and approved commercial cannabis facility in North America.

Further, “AdvantaMeds Solutions USA Fund I, Inc.” received its Regulation A+ II (pursuant to the Jobs Act of 2012) qualification for a public stock offering, and the Company is currently registering its shares for sale to the public on the OTC Markets Group’s “OTCQB Market”. Pre-IPO Shares are being offered to all investors on the Company’s website at: “http://advantameds.us.”

In 2012, the States of Colorado and Washington (USA) became the first two States in the United States to fully legalize recreational marijuana. Two years later, the legal cannabis market (which includes sales in medical-use markets such as the State of California) was earning $2.7 Billion in revenue. At 74% growth year-over-year, cannabis outpaced every other industry in America for 2014. The increasing demand for cannabis as a medicine for a number of aliments continues to be a proven alternative to pharmaceutical regiments. Positioning the Corporation to take maximum advantage of this demand with high-quality products remains a major operational objective.

Management believes that it can take advantage of this growth, by obtain increasing revenues, garner greater market share and looks for and closes upon quality acquisitions to increase its presence as a commercial cannabis operator.

Geoff Thompson, President, AdvantaMeds Solutions USA Fund 1, Inc. states,” After months of hard work AdvantaMeds’ received US SEC Preferred share offering approval.  As an historical event, not just for Advantameds, but for the whole cannabis industry, regulators approved a preferred share offering for this industry.”

Advantameds’ management team is building essential connections to work smarter which will expand access, reduce waste and create a better industry as the management has charted a course towards a sustainable future, http://advantameds.us/

Weyland Tech (WEYL) Provides Shareholder Update On Business Model Evolution

Hong Kong, September 1, 2016 — Weyland Tech Inc. (OTCQB: WEYL) (“Weyland Tech” or the “Company”), a provider of mobile business applications provides a shareholder update on its evolving business model.

Given the nature of DIY mobile apps (“apps”), and the primary target market of Small-Medium-sized-Businesses (“SMB’s”), a typical go-to-market strategy would have direct sales force or resellers approach SMB’s directly to drive license sales.

Over the past eight months, the Company has evolved this model with two distinct market paths to drive recurring revenue sales:

  • Strategic Partnerships in countries/regions where said partners are responsible for targeting SMB’s either thru an installed base of customers OR groups of Direct Sellers with a sales force encompassing SMB’s as end customers.
  • Enterprise Solutions where large retailers (hypermart chains, mall owners, brand owners with company-owned and franchise stores) adopt a ‘Master App’ on a white-label basis, hosted at a 3rd party regional Hosting or Data Center facility.

With the above strategy, we believe that the Company has been able to maintain a lower capital expenditure base due to the ‘level-two’ customer support vs. ‘level-one’ customer support, smaller sales and marketing teams, and the need to provide hosting services.

In addition to the previously announced partnerships this year, the Company is currently in late stage discussions and negotiations with a number of strategic partners and enterprise-sized customers, including major regional and country telecommunications providers, Fortune 500 retailers and ‘affiliate’ groups.

Specific terms of the relationships and agreements will remain confidential for competitive reasons. However, agreements are expected to continue to support a transition from a license model to a multi-year model with subscriptions, m-commerce sharing and advertising revenues.
