Compass Biotechnologies, Inc.(OTCMKTS: COBI) Acquired by Cannabis Investment Firm

More and more emerging companies in the Cannabis space are going public via reverse merger these days. The fastest and easiest way to go about it is when a private company acquires a majority number of shares in a public shell company usually trading on the OTC Markets also known as a “reverse merger”.  According to Investopedia: “ Reverse mergers allow a private company to become public without raising capital, which considerably simplifies the process. While conventional IPOs can take months (even over a calendar year) to materialize, reverse mergers can take only a few weeks to complete (in some cases, in as little as 30 days). This saves management a lot of time and energy, ensuring that there is sufficient time devoted to running the company.” Compass Biotechnologies, Inc.(OTCMKTS: COBI) Announced a deal to be acquired by Bangi Investments, LLC just today.
