STEEP HILL TERMINATES LICENSE AGREEMENTS WITH PAZOO AND AFFILIATES
Licenses Previously Granted To Pazoo Subsidiaries To Open Labs In Colorado, Nevada And Oregon Have Been Revoked
July 1, 2016 – Berkeley, CA – Steep Hill Labs, Inc., the global leader in cannabis genetics, analytics and testing, today announced it has terminated all Licensee Agreements with Pazoo, Inc. (OTCMKTS:PZOO) and its subsidiaries, effective immediately. This termination includes the licenses previously granted to Pazoo and its subsidiaries to open and run Steep Hill branded labs in the states of Colorado, Nevada and Oregon.
This termination is based upon the failure of Pazoo and its subsidiaries to meet their contractual obligations. We will turn this disappointing and unproductive relationship into a new opportunity to seek licensee partners in these rapidly evolving states that can get licensed and start testing using Steep Hill’s leading science and technology platforms.
Steep Hill President and CEO Jmîchaeĺe Keller
The industry is undergoing accelerated change, and Steep Hill’s licensing program is rapidly changing as well. Due to these changes, we have become more selective with whom we choose to partner, and we are excited about a new beginning in these states.
