Marijuana Company Kaya Holdings 10-Q and 8-K filings Detail $5.8 Million
Additional Financing Agreement and Increased Cash Position, Additional OLCC
Marijuana Retailer Licenses  

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., May  23, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)  -- Kaya Holdings,  Inc. 
(OTCQB:KAYS), filed  its Quarterly  report and  a 8-K  after close  of  market 
yesterday afternoon.  Developments  include  a  $5.8  mm  financing  agreement 
reached with the Cayman Venture  Capital Fund (an institutional investor  that 
has previously furnished KAYS with approximately $3.3mm in financing), as well
as receipt of  its third  Marijuana Retailer  and Delivery  Licenses from  the 
Oregon Liquor Control Commission (“OLCC”).

“KAYS is  pleased  to  announce  that  it  has  received  its  OLCC  and  City 
recreational marijuana retail  licenses for  its Portland store  where it  has 
resumed recreational sales. This brings us to 3 fully-licensed and operational
Kaya Shack™  OLCC  retail  marijuana  stores, with  the  4th  expected  to  be 
completed over the  next 60  days,” reported  Kaya Holdings  CEO Craig  Frank. 
“Additionally, we have ordered more Fiat 500 cars to build our Kaya Car™  Home 
Delivery Service  which we  intend to  launch contemporaneously  with a  grand 
opening celebration for  all four OLCC-Licensed  Kaya Shack™ retail  marijuana 
stores.”

“While sales were  down approximately $100,000  for Q-1 2017  versus the  same 
period in 2016  (as we were  only able  to conduct recreational  sales at  one 
outlet as  compared to  two outlets  in the  same period  in 2016),  our  cash 
position has increased by over 700% to in excess of $1.2mm as of the close  of 
Q-1, for  the same  relevant periods,”  continued Frank.  “We are  excited  to 
secure this additional funding and believe  it provides us with the  resources 
necessary to develop more Kaya Shack™ store locations, construct a large scale
state-of-the-art  facility   for  Kaya   Farms™,  begin   seeking   worthwhile 
opportunities in other  states, and  introduce products  and innovations  that 
continue to define Kaya as a concept pioneer in the cannabis sector.”
