ISBG Announces Regulatory Approval for Official Corporate Name Change
LAS VEGAS, NV -- July 17, 2019 -- InvestorsHub NewsWire -- International Spirits & Wellness Holdings, Inc. (OTCMKTS: ISBG) (“ISBG” or the “Company”), a top-tier brand incubator in the Global Wine & Spirits and CBD-Infused Products markets, is excited to announce that, based on the Company’s high level of transparency, Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (“FINRA”) has approved the Company’s official name change to “International Spirits & Wellness Holdings, Inc.” (from “International Spirits & Beverage Group, Inc.”).

“With the dramatic rise of our Health and Wellness segment, and our thriving CBD products business, it was clearly time to bring our company name into alignment with our underlying narrative,” commented Terry Williams, ISBG CEO. “Our Spirits business remains on very solid footing. But we see our Wellness business as the more robust growth driver in the quarters ahead given the truly remarkable boom conditions currently prevailing in the CBD products space.”
Management believes that the name of a company is the first line of awareness for a current or prospective investor. And having that factor out of alignment with the rest of the narrative defining the company can be a serious impediment for representing the value of a share of ownership in that company. This is true under normal conditions, but it may be peculiarly true when a company has significant sales and operations in perhaps the defining boom of the current decade, but a corporate name that directly distracts from that idea.
As such, the Company believes that a name change was imperative given both the dramatic growth underway in its Health and Wellness segment, and continued strong signals demonstrated by published analyst research for the CBD marketplace overall.
Specifically, new projections from the Brightfield Group in its June report suggest, if anything, a further acceleration in the overall growth of the CBD space, and some suggestion that this acceleration is being driven by an increasingly tangible jump in mainstream consumer adoption of CBD-based products. Specifically, the report notes that 2019 will show a 700% jump relative to 2018 levels for all domestic sales of CBD-based products, with 2019 on pace to exceed $5 billion in total sales of products containing CBD given current data. In addition, according to the Brightfield Group researchers, much of this jump will be due to sales in mainstream retail chain stores.
”We are excited to get this name change through FINRA,” continued Mr. Williams. “We have an extremely strong story right now, with several products already at market and driving robust sales. This step should reduce the cognitive hurdle in front of anyone who wishes to appreciate that story.”
