(CSE:MOTA)(FSE:1WZ1)(OTC:PEMTF) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it will be replicating its highly successful business plan and operations in the United States for expansion into the European market with its Sativida brand, acquired on March 26, 2020. Sativida is already one of the top search-ranked online retailers of CBD products in Spain and Mexico, with distribution channels in Spain, Portugal, Austria, Germany, France and the United Kingdom.

SUCCESSFUL USA BUSINESS MODEL EXPECTED TO SIGNIFICANTLY BOOST EUROPEAN OPERATIONS


Year-to-Date in 2020, Mota Ventures has announced the following significant milestones from its U.S. operations:

Interim Record Of 14,388 New Customers For April 1 – 23.
Record Of 20,959 New Customers For The Month Of March
Revenue Of $4,290,000 In March
Revenue Of $2,981,000 In February, Representing Growth Of 832% over same period last year
With the Company’s e-commerce capabilities and success in the U.S. market, combined with the current search engine strength and distribution channels of the Sativida brand, management is very confident in its prospects for rapid customer acquisition throughout Europe. This confidence is further supported by the Company’s successful launch of its immune support product line, as well as, the May 1 launch of its CBD based hand sanitizer, both of which will be included in the European expansion.

Much of the Company’s success in the U.S. market has been attributed to its’ strong supply chain, which has continued to operate uninterrupted despite global turmoil in 2020. The Company has been actively sourcing multiple CBD suppliers in Europe to ensure a supply chain that is as strong and consistent as the North America operations. The Company will be announcing further details of the European expansion in the coming weeks as they become available.

“We are excited to announce this European expansion plan. As the world economy begins to awaken, now is the opportune to utilize what we have accomplished in the United States and implement the same strategies in Europe. There are several key market opportunities we have identified in Europe and now is the time to capitalize. I look forward to announcing an official launch date in the coming weeks” stated Ryan Hoggan, CEO of the Company.
