LAS VEGAS, Oct. 31, 2012 -- News of the decision to spin-off four robust subsidiaries hit the wire Monday when the Board of Directors of Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) voted, unanimously, to direct its management team to spin-off a water and beverage company; an internet software development company; a business opportunity company; and a telecommunications company.
According to Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP), "Anyone who owns stock in Hemp, Inc. on the effective spin-off date will be given stock in each spin-off company equal to the same percentage of stock they own in Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP). There is no cost to the shareholder."
David Tobias, President of Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP), stated, "We have confidence in the future success of these spin-offs. By separating them from Hemp, Inc. it allows new professional management teams that are experts in their individual industries to take over while we focus more directly on the hemp market. The shareholders get the best of both worlds; this should free up Hemp, Inc. to grow more quickly, and the shareholders are given an equal percentage in four other companies."
The development of the subsidiaries has been funded by stock of each individual subsidiary and not with Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) stock. Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) will still own at least 80% of each subsidiary and Hemp, Inc. is not diluted by the spin-offs and since the companies are development stage companies they have not added any revenue to Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP).
Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) pointed out, "This represents an enormous potential benefit for the shareholders of Hemp, Inc. Each shareholder of Hemp, Inc. will receive, at no cost, the same percentage of stock in each of the subsidiaries. For example, if someone owns 1% of Hemp, Inc. they will be given 1% of the stock in each of the four companies."
According to Perlowin, "The management team is working diligently to complete the spin-offs as soon as possible but the goal of November 21, 2012 is not guaranteed. Should we hit our spin-off target date, shareholders on that day will be given new stock in all four companies, and it should be a very Happy Thanksgiving."
ABOUT HEMP, INC.

CEO of Hemp, Inc., Bruce Perlowin, is positioning the company as a leader in the industrial hemp industry, with a social and environmental mission at its core. In fact, he wanted to, consciously, found a business with non-financial goals that weren't an after-thought, but are part of its DNA.
