DENVER, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- Mountain High Acquisitions Corp. (OTCQB: MYHI) ("Mountain High" or the "Company"), a strategic real estate holding company whose primary focus is the acquisition and development of commercial properties in the marijuana sector, is pleased to announce that Canna-Life Corp., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, has completed the definitive Master Property Purchase and Sale Agreement (the "Agreement") for the acquisition of three properties and improvements thereon located in: (i) Lafayette, Boulder County, Colorado, referred to as the "Isabelle Property," (ii) Avondale, Pueblo County, Colorado, referred to as the "Pueblo Property," and (iii) Denver, Denver County, Colorado, referred to as the "Madison St. Property."
"We are extremely pleased to have progressed to complete this milestone Agreement to acquire the highly sought after Isabelle, Pueblo, and Madison Street properties in Colorado," stated Mr. Alan Smith, President of Mountain High Acquisitions Corp. "With this first phase of our property acquisition strategy now secured, we will move forward with our plans to further develop and maximize potential revenue streams from each of our portfolio properties. Additionally, the Company will continue review potential properties in the cannabis sector for future acquisition."
The Isabelle Property consists of nine (9) acres of property, improvements, and other assets located near Boulder, Colorado. Since October 2012, the primary tenant at the Isabelle Property has been one of the largest greenhouse marijuana grow facilities in the State of Colorado, with a total of 42,000 sq./ft. under roof (approx. 1 acre). The current operation at the Isabelle Property can produce in excess of 5,000 lbs. of up to 50 specific strains of marijuana for medical use over approximately 10 separate harvests. Mountain High expects to generate in excess of $2.5 million in net annualized revenue from the Isabelle Property in its current configuration without significant leasehold improvements or expansion, subject to terms and conditions of the agreement. In addition to lease revenues from the Isabelle Property, the Company anticipates generating additional complementary revenue streams related to its position as landlord and primary services provider.
Mr. Smith concluded, "The Isabelle Property is without question one of the best known established marijuana business locations in Colorado, but we are equally excited about the acquisition and revenue potential of the Pueblo and Madison St. properties. With this in mind, we have already taken steps to develop detailed build out strategies for each property and look forward to starting to work with our partners to execute these plans."
The Madison Property, located in Denver, Colorado, is an ideally located 28,000 sq./ft. highly-reinforced building that was previously used for storage of fracking sand and grain. Now zoned for commercial marijuana cultivation, Mountain High intends to fully develop the Madison Property to house up to 200 specialized grow "Pods" designed to be leased to licensed growers for highly specialized medical marijuana cultivation. There are presently no facilities or growing operations on the Madison Property. At full capacity, 200 pods are estimated to represent approximately $8.4 million in annually lease revenues at current market rates.
The Pueblo Property, located at Avondale, Colorado, is 90 acres of raw land surrounded by a former U.S. Army ammunition storage and supply facility and now zoned and approved to become one of the largest single locations for commercial marijuana cultivation in the State. There are presently no facilities or growing operations on the land. Once the required infrastructure of roads, electrical, and water hookups is in place, the Company intends to develop the land into 10 or more distinctive 5 acre plots, collectively comprising a "Cannabis Campus." Each five-acre plot will provide the licensed grower with access to all required commercial growing facilities, including greenhouses, hydroponics, laboratories, kitchens, and outdoors grow operations.

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

There is an ever-growing explosion of new devices that are connected to the Internet using “cloud” solutions. This rapid growth is creating a massive new demand for efficient access to data. And it’s not just about connecting to that data anymore. This new demand is bringing new issues and challenges and it is important for companies to scale for the coming growth. And with that scaling comes the need for greater security, gathering and data analysis, storage, connectivity and, of course, the...
