Medbox Secures Additional Capital from Current Lender

Medbox, Inc., (MDBX), the leading licensing, infrastructure and security specialist, patented technology provider, and partner to the cannabis industry, is pleased to announce that it has secured an additional $0.5 million in capital from a current lender.  The additional financing closed on Friday, September 26, 2014. The remaining $1.0 million commitment from the original agreement is expected to close in two $0.5 million increments within 2 days and 5 days, respectively of the effectiveness of Medbox’s S-1 filing which is expected to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission this week.

Medbox intends to use the net proceeds to accelerate the development and growth of its current business pipeline in key target markets within the U.S. In addition, the Company intends to apply a portion of the net proceeds for general corporate purposes, which may include working capital, continued investment in geographic expansion, as well as research and development.
