A big winner will be a US CBD company offering consumer products
This big news is why we’re telling you to drop everything and take a look at Real Brands, Inc. (RLBD). The company recently registered the CBD Pharmacy™, which will be launching with proprietary formulas melding CBD with ancient Chinese remedies.
Moreover, RLBD has also acquired the Hempade®, Humboldt®, and Omegahemp™ trademarks. And the company is expected to launch a wider variety of consumer products under these trademarks soon.
RLBD has also recently acquired www.realbrands.com, and it’s expected to launch its own e-commerce website to sell hemp-derived CBD consumer products directly to consumers. RLDB’s impressive portfolio will be extremely enticing to the major players looking to enter the US market.
RLBD’s management and recent audit drive investor growth and proﬁts!
Another reason RLBD will be a highly-sought-after company is its impressive C-Suite. From their skills at taking various startups to IPO on the Nasdaq to managing multi-million-dollar corporations on Wall Street, RLBD’s management is a sure win for investors. We anticipate that the recent completion of their two-year audit will accelerate their efforts towards the company becoming a fully reporting company with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Let’s take a closer look at management.
Real Brands Chairman Peter Christos
Chairman Peter Christos has over 30 years of experience as a Wall Street executive. He also has an impressive track record of taking companies from start-up status to gaining acquisitions. His experience and connections are major factors in why RLBD will be such a big winner.
Peter was founding chairman and CEO of AND Interactive Communications Corp., a private software company acquired in 1994 by TCI Technology Ventures, Inc.—a wholly owned subsidiary of TCI, now Comcast Corp. (CMCSA). He also started AquaCare Systems, Inc., a start-up that completed several acquisitions before and after its Nasdaq IPO, thereafter a premium-priced tender offer.
Peter also founded TransAmerican Waste Industries, Inc. He then took the company from a startup to an IPO on the Nasdaq before it was acquired through a merger in 1998 with USA Waste Industries, Inc., now Waste Management, Inc. (WM). Sparta Pharmaceuticals, Inc., was another start-up that Peter took to IPO on the Nasdaq. It was acquired in 1999 by SuperGen, Inc. He also took CTN Media Group, Inc.—AKA College Television Network— from startup to Nasdaq IPO. It was acquired in 2002 by MTV Networks, a division of Viacom, Inc. (VIAB).
After this amazing run, Peter founded and managed Abacos Ventures, LLC. He has also served as a Managing Director of investment banking ﬁrms in NYC, including but not limited to the founding Chairman and CEO of the NYC-based Adelphia Capital, LLC, a former member ﬁrm, Adelphia Holdings, LLC, and Adelphia Partners, LLC.
For nearly ten years at Adelphia, Peter managed investment banking and direct investments. He was an EVP, Partner, and co-head of the NYC ofﬁce ofthe investment banking ﬁrm Bannon & Co. The ﬁrm was subsequently sold to the French bank Société Générale, which merged with Cowen & Company.
Investors should note Peter’s track record and experience as the backbone of Real Brands, Inc.’s promising future. But Peter Christos isn’t the only executive at RLBD with a seriously impressive background…
