Mazorro Provides Update on GrowPros Transaction and Equity Financing

OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/16/14 -- Mazorro Resources Inc. (the "Company") (CSE: MZO)(FRANKFURT: JAM) announces that it is progressing with its proposed acquisition of all of the issued and outstanding securities of 8816301 Canada Inc., also known as GrowPros MMP ("GrowPros"), a medical marijuana consultation and acquisition firm that is pursuing a license as a producer of medical marijuana in Canada pursuant to the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations. The parties are currently negotiating a definitive agreement and the Company expects to complete the acquisition this summer. The acquisition is subject to regulatory approval, including that of the Canadian Securities Exchange ("CSE").

The Company is also pleased to announce that Mr. Norm Boucher has been appointed as Security Advisor to GrowPros. Mr. Boucher brings 35 years of varied experience with the RCMP, including several years of operational drug enforcement and organized crime experience. Mr. Boucher also worked nationally and internationally on drug control programs, policy and legislation, representing the RCMP at national and international committees. This experience included several joint efforts with Canadian and foreign drug enforcement organizations to develop, plan and coordinate drug control support initiatives in several countries in Latin America and Asia. As an RCMP liaison officer and first secretary at the Canadian Embassy in Madrid, Spain and in Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic, he worked with foreign agencies to support the investigation of international organized crime and terrorism investigations. Mr. Boucher was a member of the RCMP specialized national anti-terrorism team and is now a security advisor for a number of companies and organizations focusing on threat assessments and security planning.

In addition to the proposed acquisition of GrowPros, the Company continues to seek opportunities to diversify the scope of its business.

As previously announced, the Company's ability to continue operations is dependent upon successfully raising the necessary financing to complete its business plan and, in this regard, the Company is pleased to announce that it has engaged Jones, Gable & Company Limited (the "Agent") to act as its agent in connection with a private placement of units (the "Units"), at a price of $0.10, for minimum gross proceeds of $500,000 and maximum proceeds of $2,000,000. Each Unit will be comprised of one common share (a "Share") and one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant") entitling the holder thereof to acquire one additional Share at a price of $0.15 for 24 months following the closing of the private placement. In connection with the private placement, the Company has agreed to pay to the Agent a cash commission equal to 10.0% of the gross proceeds raised under the private placement and issue to the Agent non-transferable options (the "Agent's Options"), at an exercise price of $0.10, to acquire that number of Units as is equal to 10.0% of the number of Units issued pursuant to the private placement for a period of 24 months following the closing of the private placement. The Units underlying the Agent's Options are identical to the Units being issued under the private placement. The Company and the Agent will use their commercially reasonable efforts to complete the private placement as soon as possible. The private placement is subject to regulatory approval, including that of the CSE.

The net proceeds from the private placement are expected to be used (i) for general working capital purposes, and (ii) to fund the Company's planned diversification strategy, including the acquisition of GrowPros.

Mazorro Resources Inc. currently has 27,757,387 common shares outstanding.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
