Generation Next Shareholder Meeting to be Held August 2, 2019
SAN DIEGO, CA, July 18, 2019 // GLOBE NEWSWIRE // - via NEWMEDIAWIRE - Generation Next (OTCQB: VEND) will hold a meeting of its shareholders at its corporate headquarters in San Diego on Friday, August 2nd at 10:00 AM Pacific Time. The Company recently completed a filing with the SEC reflecting the intent to increase the authorized shares from 100 million to 200 million. This increase is accomplished through an amendment to the articles of incorporation which requires shareholder approval.
“We require additional capital to fulfill the backlog of Reis & Irvy’s robots and bridge the company to the point in time when we can generate positive cash flow from operations. Increasing the number of authorized shares gives us the opportunity to explore both debt and equity sources of capital,” said CEO Nick Yates. “We want to take care of the Reis & Irvy’s franchisees through the increased production and installation of kiosks; however, issuing new equity supports other objectives including a possible up-list to a senior exchange, such as NYSE or NASDAQ, and adding talent to our growing team. We also want to have the next robotic vending kiosk ready for launch after we have matured the Reis & Irvy’s platform within the next 12-24 months.” The Company also noted proceeds from its capital raise will also be used to fund operations and pay short term liabilities which include accounts payable to suppliers and obligations to franchisees lost because of the manufacturing delays and technical issues experienced with alpha units.
Another key item on the shareholder meeting agenda is changing the company name to Generation Next. “The name change is important because it communicates the direction we are moving as a company to operate both franchise and corporate store business models for our unattended retail platforms including Reis & Irvy’s, Print Mates, and the next program we will develop,” continued Yates.
Proxy and voting materials are being mailed to shareholders of record as of June 25. Generation Next will provide an audio recording of the meeting on the investor page of its website on Monday, August 5.
