Kelowna, BC / April 27, 2016 / Lexaria Corp. (OTCQB:LXRP) (CSE:LXX) (the “Company”) provides the following update.
Ms. Bal Bhullar is resigning as CFO and Director of Lexaria effective April 29. Bal has been CFO of Lexaria for over 8 years and is leaving the Company to pursue other opportunities. Lexaria wishes her every possible success in the future. Chris Bunka will be named as interim CFO for what is expected to be a short period of time as the Company evaluates several candidates, and positions itself for long-term growth.
Mr. John Docherty, President of Lexaria Corp, is being appointed a director of the Company effective April 29. John is well known to Lexaria stakeholders and is a highly regarded member of the Lexaria team. Lexaria welcomes John’s increased role with the Company.
Meanwhile the technology licensing agreement LOI announced on March 22, 2016, continues to advance towards a definitive agreement and negotiations continue. Simultaneously, the Company has entered negotiations on a second technology licensing agreement with a separate third-party company, and is in discussion for even more licensing agreements with others. As is true in all negotiations, there can be no assurance that any definitive agreement will be reached, although our expectation is that we will have additional developments to report soon.
Also, the Lexaria Protein-Energy bars continue to attract a great deal of attention. The Company has developed improved recipe formulations based on extensive discussions with our customers and vendors. The existing bars have received an enthusiastic reception and have been repeatedly complimented. Lexaria is not content however, and the new recipes will feature lower fat, lower sodium, lower natural sugars, increased fiber and other improvements, while maintaining the superior taste profile that consumers have come to expect from Lexaria. The new formulations should be available by early Summer, 2016.
Finally, at our recent Annual General Meeting, shareholders voted overwhelmingly in favor of the proposed change in name to Lexaria Bioscience Corp. That name change is now being made effective.
Lexaria Corp is a food sciences company focused on the delivery of active compounds that can behave as superfoods through its proprietary infusion technologies. Lexaria’s technology enables higher bioavailability rates for CBD; THC; NSAIDs; Nicotine and other molecules than is possible without lipophilic enhancement technology. This can allow for lower overall dosing requirements and/or higher effectiveness in active molecule delivery. Lexaria hopes to reduce other common but less healthy ingestion methods such as smoking as it embraces the benefits of public health. www.lexariaenergy.com
