(OTCQB:KAYS), announced that it has disclosed fiscal year 2016 results of
operations by filing its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended
December 31, 2016 with the SEC.  Results of operations in the Form 10-K show

During 2016, KAYS  operated two  Kaya Shack™  retail outlets  in Portland  and 
South Salem,  Oregon, respectively,  the second  of which  in Salem  is  KAYS’ 
initial Kaya Shack™ Marijuana  Superstore. Since the  results reported in  the 
2016 10-K,  KAYS  opened  its  third retail  outlet  and  second  Kaya  Shack™ 
Marijuana Superstore  in North  Salem, Oregon  in March  2017 and  anticipates 
opening its fourth retail outlet and third Kaya Shack™ Marijuana Superstore in
Central Salem within the next 30-60 days.

Additionally, KAYS reported that they  expect their Portland, Oregon  location 
(Kaya Shack #1) to have its  OLCC Marijuana Retailer License activated  within 
the next 2  weeks so that  recreational sales can  commence at that  location, 
which has been limited to medical sales  only since January 1 of this year  as 
the new licensing regulations commenced. The activation of this OLCC  License, 
in conjunction with the licensing and opening of the retail outlet in  Central 
Salem, Oregon would  bring KAYS  to a  total of  4 OLCC  Licensed Kaya  Shack™ 
retail marijuana stores able to  serve both medical patients and  recreational 
customers.

In a related announcement,  KAYS confirmed that it  has received licensure  to 
operate an  unlimited number  of  Kaya Car™  Home  Delivery Vehicles  in  both 
Portland and Salem, Oregon and recently  took delivery of its first four  Fiat 
500 cars to begin  building their Kaya Car™  Home Delivery Service fleet.  The 
cars are  presently  being customized  with  distinctive Kaya  Shack™  vehicle 
wrapping featuring the Company’s branding logos and colors, and the Company is
developing the Kaya  Shack™ Delivery  App for use  by its  customers to  order 
“Fast, Free Delivery” of  the complete line of  both medical and  recreational 
grade Kaya Shack™ cannabis products.

“We intend to initiate Kaya Car™  Home Delivery Service within the next  30-60 
days, contemporaneously with  a grand  opening celebration for  all four  then 
OLCC-Licensed Kaya Shack™ retail marijuana stores  and to commence to move  to 
the next stage  of branding and  retail development,” stated  KAYS’ CEO  Craig 
Frank.  “In  addition  to  providing  added  value  and  convenience  for  our 
customers, extending visibility  and building brand  recognition for the  Kaya 
Shack™ brand,  we believe  that  Kaya Shack™  Home Delivery  provides  greater 
market penetration, by allowing sales throughout the geographic area that  our 
stores are licensed in. There is no  limit to the number of delivery  vehicles 
that can service an individual area using just one store as a home base, so in
effect we  intend  to use  this  service  to construct  dozens  of  additional 
“virtual” Kaya Shacks™ without the added costs of additional brick and  mortar 
locations.”
