The story here, in our opinion, is that Tinley – which has set itself up to be the contract THC bottler of choice with a new 20,000 Los Angeles facility – now it has a very wealthy and well-connected Ambassador, to introduce other celebrities and sports stars who are thinking about having their own celebrity-branded beverage to Tinley. As Baron says in the press release, “the opportunities are endless.” Beverage Stock Review
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Tinley Beverage Company Inc. is pleased to announce that NBA All-Star and early-stage Vitaminwater® investor Baron Davis has joined Tinley’s Advisory Board.
In this role, Baron will lend expertise by advising on marketing and promotion, co-packing and co-branding opportunities, and product development strategies.
“I’m excited to have the opportunity to join the Tinley team. Tinley has a great opportunity to introduce new products and categories, bring forth innovative collaborations, and entrench themselves as a pioneer in this quickly evolving space.”
“The opportunities to create celebrity and other consumer-branded products on the Tinley platform are endless with Tinley perfectly positioned as a co-packing leader moving forward,” says Baron.
Baron Davis is a two-time NBA All-Star and record-holder. Over a thirteen-year career, he played for the Charlotte Hornets, the Golden State Warriors, the Los Angeles Clippers, the Cleveland Cavaliers, and the New York Knicks. Now, an entrepreneur, investor, and businessman, Baron is also the founder of several companies under his Baron Davis Enterprises (BDE) banner, including: Business Inside the Game (BIG) and Sports Lifestyle in Culture (SLIC), his media platform and content studio.
As Baron’s participation increases in parallel with the industry’s maturation, the expectation is that Tinley will plug into Baron’s portfolio, studio and network to spur exponential growth, with the initial collaboration coming via SLIC, with whom Tinley is developing its first podcast idea, “So Faded,” an edgy, celebrity driven mix of fun, culture, and comedy in which Tinley products will feature prominently.
Contemporaneous with this appointment, Tinley will today be closing a non-brokered private placement (“Offering”) raising gross proceeds of $500,000 from the issue and sale of 1,250,000 units (the “Units”). Each Unit is being purchased for $0.40 and is comprised of one common share of Tinley (“Common Share”) and one common share purchase warrant (“Warrant”). Each Warrant is exercisable into one Common Share (“Warrant Share”) at a price of $0.60 for a period of 36 months following the closing. The Common Shares, Warrants and Warrant Shares are subject to a statutory hold period of four months and a day from the date of closing. In connection with the Offering, Tinley is paying to Echelon Wealth Partners Inc. a commission of 7% of the gross proceeds raised in the Offering and a number of broker unit options equal to 7% of the number of Units sold in the Offering (“Broker Unit Options”). Each Broker Unit Option entitles Echelon to acquire one Unit (a “Broker Unit”) at an exercise price of $0.40 for a period of 36 months following the closing of the Offering with each Broker Unit comprised of one Common Share and one Warrant. The Common Shares, Warrants and Warrant Shares are subject to a statutory hold period of four months and a day from the date of closing.
