Isodiol Aquires KURE, The 'Starbucks' Of Vape Retail

Canadian-based CBD manufacturer Isodiol International Inc. (ISOLF) announced that it has signed a letter of intent to acquire 100% of KURE™ Corp.  The company, a leading specialty vape retailer headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, calls itself the ‘Starbucks’ of the vape industry. The amount was not disclosed, but KURE reported unaudited annual revenues for fiscal 2018 of $8.8 million. The deal is expected to close by the end of April 2018.

KURE has tried to differentiate itself from other vape shops by creating the KURE Vaporium & Lounge, a retail environment, and lounge catering to the vaping community. The company operates a total of twelve e-juice bars and lounges today, with plans for international expansion.

“We believe KURE to be the Starbucks (SBUX) of the specialty retail vape industry,” said  Craig Brewer, Chairman & CEO of KURE Corp. ” With over 200,000 customer transactions per year and growing, KURE’s knowledge base in the vape industry is exceptional. In joining the Isodiol family, we will now be able to provide our devout customers the very best CBD products on the market.”

KURE specializes in the retailing of vaporizers and e-cigarettes, e-juices, and related accessories. Its products are available online and throughout its store locations across the United States. KURE Vaporium & Lounge, KURE Society, Kuriousity, Kurators are all respective trademarks of KURE  Corp. Its e-Juices can be purchased pre-bottled or freshly mixed by its staff of “Kurators”, well-trained and experienced mixologists who can “blend” over 500,000 unique flavors from the KURE Juice On Tap bar.

“KURE’s executives are highly experienced business entrepreneurs that have done a tremendous job in building the KURE™ brand,” said Marcos Agramont, Chief Executive Officer of Isodiol.  “Not only does this further entrench our footprint in the vaping and e-cigarette industry, but through KURE retail stores, the Company will set up its own distribution channels for its family of brands, including ISO-Sport and Be Tru Wellness.”

“When we acquired Bradley’s Bioscience, we were excited about the prospects of providing safer alternatives to smoking, while at the same time being able to enter a market poised to be worth over $60 billion by 2025,” said Agramont.   “With this partnership, we will further entrench our footprint in this fast-growing industry, and we look forward to the global opportunities it presents for the Company.”

Isodiol stock was lately trading at 90 cents, down from its 52-week high of $1.69.
