(Palm Beach, FL) - Vegalab, Inc. ("Vegalab” or “the Company"), (OTCQB: VEGL), announced today that it completed its acquisition of The Agronomy Group, LLC effective as of February 1, 2018. The Agronomy Group (“TAG”), located in Tulare County, California, is a producer and distributor of environmentally friendly agrochemicals. TAG had been Vegalab’s top U.S. sales organization, so the acquisition dramatically expands the Company’s internal marketing capability. The purchase price for TAG was paid by the delivery of 600,000 shares of the restricted common stock of Vegalab, and a warrant to purchase 1,600,000 shares of the restricted common stock of Vegalab at an exercise price of $1.20 per share exercisable over a term of five years.

David Selakovic, CEO of Vegalab, Inc., said, “Vegalab’s acquisition of The Agronomy Group puts us in direct relationship with industry leading, national agro-chemical distributors and dealers such as Winfield United, Stanislaus Farm Supply, Buttonwillow Warehouse, and Mid Valley Agricultural Services. We are excited about the potential to increase our sales with the addition of 29 new products from TAG, including 10 of which are listed for use in organic agriculture (9 by the Organic Materials Review Institute, and 1 by the Washington State Department of Agriculture). Our management team determined this to be a highly strategic acquisition opportunity, and we  expect TAG’s environmentally friendly products and established distribution channels to substantially increase our revenues and profitability.”

Vegalab Provides Business Update on Recently Acquired M&G Packing

(Palm Beach, FL) - Vegalab, Inc. ("the Company" or "Vegalab"), (OTCQB: VEGL) today provided a business update on M&G Packing, which was purchased on October 18, 2017. The facility consists of approximately 11 acres of real property and 30,000 sq. ft. of buildings. M&G packing had approximately $8.6 million in fruit sales during the fiscal year ended September 30, 2017. Net income from operations for the period was $83,128 and net cash provided by operating activities during the fiscal year ended September 30, 2017 was $301,257. After the acquisition of M&G the Company has received orders and shipped product at a level it believes to be consistent with M&G operations in its fiscal year 2017.

David Selakovic, CEO of Vegalab, Inc. stated, "With the acquisition of the M&G business, we sought to increase revenue and improve operational efficiencies. We believe we are off to a good start with citrus sales in the fourth quarter of 2017, despite officially taking over 17 days into the quarter. Our entire Vegalab produce team, led by Ryan Sweeney, has done a great job in a short amount of time. This is the slow time of year, so we expect our sales to increase in the next couple of quarters. Our focus is to accelerate the volume of fruit packed and the resulting sales."

Vegalab has worked to expand the capacity of its newly acquired facility. The Company has invested over $150,000 in repairs and expansion to increase capacity. The Company believes it has substantially increased the rate of packing and production for the facility, which will enable the Company to develop the opportunity to process and sell more produce.  Cold storage space has been increased from 12,000 box capacity to 22,000 box capacity with the addition of a third cold storage room and additional racks for storage.

Ryan Sweeney, Vegalab's Director of Produce, remarked, "When we took over M&G Packing, we knew that expanding capacity was critical to increase sales. We have increased the pack line efficiency and cold storage, so we can handle about twice the fruit volume as before. Currently, the team is visiting navel orange growers to introduce them to Vegalab and our packing facility. They are excited to hear about the Company's offerings, and they have shown significant interest in our environmentally friendly products. We look forward to building strong relationships with growers and believe we can offer them better service and up to date information, while working to get them the best prices for their fruit."

Vegalab's Pollen Boost Excels in Comparative Agricultural Trials

(Palm Beach, FL) - Vegalab, Inc. ("the Company"), (OTCQB: VEGL) today announced the successful trials of its Pollen Boost product and initial first orders of Pollen Boost for delivery in early February from Stanislaus Farm Supply, Buttonwillow Warehouse Company, and Mid Valley Agricultural Services, Inc.  The successful trials and initial orders for Pollen Boost are a culmination of Vegalab's focus on market leading, Earth friendly products that give farmers a significant Return on Investment.

Vegalab is pleased to see its environmentally friendly products demonstrate market leading efficacy in recent trials on some well-known farms. Some of Vegalab's clients include Baker Farms, A.J Carvalho & Sons, Carranza Farms, Bishop Farms, Brian Deltesta, Armus Farms, Kingsburg Citrus, Mininger Farms, Rock Solid Ranches, Sun Grapes, Jakov Dulcichand Sons, and Don Deboar. In our Pollen Boost trials in 2017, we partnered with premier growers, independent pest control advisors, certified crop advisers, and UC Cooperative Extension Advisors. The strong trial results on kiwis, olives, pistachios, and almonds resulted in the $1 million order from Stanislaus Farm Supply. Vegalab trials of Pollen Boost were performed in direct competition against the largest manufacturers in the industry.

Pollen Boost was trialed on a kiwi farm in Reedley, CA and increased revenue by $7,649.40 per acre. The yield per acre of kiwis increased 5% over the grower standard yield to 6.93 tons from 6.6 tons. The most significant impact was in the size of the fruit, which increased from 161 grams per piece to 178 grams. This resulted in a significantly higher price per pound of $1.79 versus $1.30. Results of the Pollen Boost trials on an olive grove in Strathmore, CA, were also successful, increasing yield per acre 47% from 3.87 tons per acre to 5.69 tons. Trials of Pollen Boost on pistachios in Bakersfield, Tulare, and Merced, CA increased yield per acre by 8.7% from 3,696 lbs. to 4,006 lbs.

Pollen Boost was trialed on multiple almond sites against leading industry materials and led in overall increased revenue on every trial location and all 6 almond varietals trialed. Vegalab, Inc. conducted these trials in Tranquility, Los Banos, and Denair, CA. Pollen Boost increased revenue per acre better than top competition in every trial, on all 6 almond varietals and all three farms. Pollen Boost increased revenue $1,848 on average, per acre, across all trials, which led all products tested. Pollen Boost was less expensive than its competitors, costing less than $50 per acre.

David Selakovic, CEO of Vegalab, Inc. stated, "We at Vegalab believe our product lines, with Pollen Boost as a great example, will provide the market in 2018 with much needed efficacy in environmentally friendly materials. We believe Pollen Boost will provide significant sales growth in 2018 as a leading product in its class. With the results of these successful trials, we have established a clear benefit for growers and a significant return on investment.  Due to the conclusive results, we believe that peaches, nectarines, cherries, avocado, melons, cucurbits, almonds, pistachios, apples, mangos, plums and a number of other crops will greatly benefit from our product.  Vegalab's strategy is to leverage the trial results and develop a multiple crop platform for Pollen Boost, which should provide a significant market impact.  We are excited Pollen Boost has proven not only effective, but has competed successfully in trials against other industry leading materials produced by the global agricultural chemical manufacturers."

Vegalab Exercises Option to Buy The Agronomy Group, LLC

(Palm Beach, FL) - Vegalab US ("the Company"), (OTCQB: VEGL) -- On January 4, 2018, the Company reported in a filing with the SEC that it exercised an option to acquire the The Agronomy Group, LLC. The Agronomy Group (TAG), located in Tulare County, California (the "Business"), is both a producer and distributor of environmentally friendly agrochemicals. TAG is Vegalab's top U.S. sales organization for Vegalab products, so the acquisition allows the Company to expand its internal marketing capability.  TAG also distributes other products, so the acquisition increases our range of product offerings. The purchase price for TAG is payable by the delivery of: 600,000 shares of the restricted common stock of Vegalab; and a warrant to purchase 1,600,000 shares of the restricted common stock of Vegalab at an exercise price of $1.20 per share exercisable over a term of five years.

David Selakovic, CEO of Vegalab Inc., said, "Vegalab's upcoming acquisition of The Agronomy Group is very strategic and will bring us direct access to distribution channels in California, through distributors like Winfield United, Buttonwillow Warehouse and Mid Valley Ag Services. It also broadens our line of products with 29 new products. TAG has 10 products that are considered organic, with 9 OMRI registered and 1 WSDA approved for use in organic agriculture. TAG follows Vegalab's philosophy of delivering environmentally friendly, natural products for sustainable, large scale growing in the big agricultural environment. TAG will also benefit from Vegalab's research and manufacturing capabilities, which will reduce costs on the products they manufacture, including significant cost savings on their flagship product Bactor Boost™. We are excited about all of TAG's products and believe many will be star Vegalab products. Currently TAG's most notable product is the original, Earth friendly Bactor Boost™ formulation and its organic version, which have proven to generate higher yields."

The Agronomy Group co-founder J. Hill stated, "We are excited to be joining the Vegalab family, as we feel that the overall impact across the U.S. and internationally will be broadened by the products that both companies bring together. The vision and ideals behind Vegalab of taking care of the environment with Earth friendly products and helping growers exceed expected yield and crop quality are values that we have always embraced at TAG. We look forward to working with Vegalab and promoting these values within the marketplace for many years to come. The acquisition and formation of both companies into one, under the Vegalab brand, broadens the scope of products and increases the visibility of the company as a whole. The addition of the irrigation maintenance lines and Bactor Boost™ brings an immediate impact, both to the Vegalab bottom-line and its national market penetration."

Under the terms of the option to purchase exercised by Vegalab, the closing is required within 15 business days, which is on or before January 22, 2018.  Closing is subject to the negotiation, execution, and delivery of definitive transaction documents, so the acquisition will not be completed unless and until that is accomplished.

(Palm Beach, FL) - Vegalab, Inc. ("the Company"), (OTCQB: VEGL) an industry leader in the burgeoning market for Earth friendly agrochemicals, today announced the introduction of its reformulated Mildew Control product. Mildew Control is a natural geraniol based pesticide that uses this essential plant oil in a formulation which, is both curative and preventative against downy mildew, and many forms of powdery mildew, on a wide variety of crops. The new formulation doubles the dilution ratio to as high as 2,500:1, with no decrease in efficacy. The improved dilution ratio reduces the cost per application by almost half, making Vegalab's Mildew Control cost competitive with other manufacturers' mildew control products, while providing the superior efficacy and environmentally friendly attributes the Company's customers have come to expect from its products.

David Selakovic, CEO of Vegalab said, "Mildew is a serious problem in multiple crops throughout the world.  Primarily we see a huge opportunity in the berry, tomato, fresh vegetable and the grape markets. Our Mildew Control provides excellent mildew suppression, even during periods of peak infection, while eliminating the concern of flaccid berries caused when using our competitors' materials currently on the market. With our new pricing and proven efficacy, we expect to see rapid acceptance among grape growers for our new formulation, and a corresponding increase in future sales of the product.   This new formulation is an example of Vegalab's innovation, as well as our commitment to constantly improve our natural, environmentally friendly product line."

The improved Mildew Control formulation and its benefits were made possible using nanotechnology and advanced adjuvants. The product is a liquid formulation that is applied to plants as a foliar spray. It is EPA-approved under FIFRA Section 25(b) as a minimum risk pesticide.

Vegalab US Adds Myco BioBoost To Its Line of Soil Inoculants

(Minden, NV) – HPC Acquisitions, Inc. (OTCQB: HPCQ) DBA Vegalab US, a biotech company focused on delivering biological pesticides and natural fertilizers using its proprietary micronization and nanotechnology, announced that it has added Myco BioBoost, a highly concentrated and customizable mycorrhizal fungus soil inoculant, to its product line.

Myco BioBoost's proprietary water-soluble mycorrhizae are manufactured in powder form boasting 82 propagules per gram, one of the highest concentrations of propagules in the market for a solid product. The mycorrhizae are obtained in vitro, which guarantees an exact spore count.  In addition, the process is completely sterile; problems of contamination with other organisms are eliminated.

Mycorrhizae symbiotically bond to the roots of a plant, growing on and expanding the root's overall surface area. This increases the root system's ability to absorb water and nutrients. The protective coating of beneficial fungi shields the root zone from pathogens and feeds off of the starch exudates excreted from the plant's roots. In exchange, the mycorrhizal colony provides a bio-available phosphorus plant food.

Vegalab's eco-compatible fungi can be customized by crop or country, which ensures that the selected fungus is adapted to local environmental conditions. Myco BioBoost has received EPA registration and is available for purchase.

MINDEN, NV – Today, HPC Acquisitions Inc. (OTCQB: HPCQ) DBA Vegalab US (“Vegalab US”) launched the improved formulation of its Spider Mite Control. Spider Mite Control is a biological pesticide that targets spider mites, pests known to feed on several hundred species of plants.  These pests cause mottled leaves and often destroy the entire plant at a rapid speed.

Spider Mite Control is highly effective by attacking spider mites in two different ways. It blocks the breathing holes of spider mites, causing them to die from suffocation. It also causes reproductive disruption among female spider mites; this leads to infertility, eggs that do not hatch, or mites that do not develop to an adult stage.

 The improved formulation calls for a dilution rate of 1:500-1:1000 (depending on level of infestation), while the old formulation recommended a dilution rate of 1:100. With 5x the original concentration, the improved Spider Mite Control drastically lowers the amount of product needed, and therefore cost, per application. As with the original formula, zero pesticide residue is left on the plants.

The improved Spider Mite Control formulation and its benefits were made possible by using proprietary nanotechnology and advanced adjuvants. The product is a liquid formulation that is applied as a foliar spray to plants. It is EPA-approved under FIFRA Section 25(b) as a minimum risk pesticide.

HPC Acquisitions Inc (HPCQ), DBA Vegalab US, Completes Initial Capital Raise and Starts Sales

PALM BEACH, FLORIDA – HPC Acquisitions Inc. (HPCQ) DBA Vegalab US (“Vegalab US”), has today announced the completion of its first round private placement of 1,000,000 shares of its common stock at $0.50 per share, as well as its initial sales results from the distribution of all-natural, sustainable agricultural products.

In April 2016, the first month of marketing, Vegalab US achieved over $450,000 of sales and believes that orders will continue to increase steadily.

“The scale of success you see from our first month of marketing supports our strong belief that there is a significant appetite in the United States for all-natural products that make a positive difference, without depleting the earth’s resources. Our initial sales combined with the scope of application for our range of products gives us confidence to seek additional capital in the near term to fund the growth opportunity,” said David Selakovic, the CEO of HPCQ/Vegalab US.

Vegalab US has already begun marketing its products in Latin America, where the marketplace is perhaps even more convinced of the need for environmentally responsible agricultural products rooted in sustainability. The first orders are expected in the second quarter of 2016 from Costa Rica and Panama.

To facilitate development of the opportunities in the US and Latin America, Vegalab US is now looking for new distribution partners in those markets.
