Would your portfolio benefit from a new penny stock which operated 1,775 vending machines offering natural, organic and healthy food and beverage products throughout North America, the Bahamas and Puerto Rico as of December 31, 2012? If so, you might want to add Green 4 Media, Inc. (GEEM) to your list after the Company sold its eco-marketing and advertising segment off and is now solely operating as its wholly owned subsidiary, Fresh Healthy Vending LLC. With over $1 million in net income last year and a 7 year operating history in vending machines providing food and beverages which started with Nicholas Yates and YoNaturals, the chances of getting to see an IPO like GEEM stock on the OTC again are between slim and none.
UPDATE: Effective September 19, GEEM changed to VEND.

If you dig deep enough into most any company on the OTC, you are bound to dig up some dirt., One need just google “nick yates fresh healthy vending” and the bad stories and term “convicted fraudsters” are going to pop up involving prior YoNaturals, Mark Trotter, Nicholas Yates and Jolly Backer, the former Chairman of our Board of Directors.
But that much digging does’t need to be done since Fresh Healthy Vending LLC, aka FHV-LLC, points out in detail every dirty little secret you would want to know about in the 8-K filed yesterday at 5:13PM EST. Therefore, on to the good stuff…
Fresh Healthy Vending basically pioneered the whole industry whereby they offer over 6,000 healthy food and beverage vending products via an exclusive eCommerce platform and we train each franchisee at our San Diego headquarters. While franchising is the core, the Company operates their own wholly owned vending machines and has plans to bu-back some machines from their franchisees.
According to the report “A Roadmap for Simultaneously Developing the Supply and Demand for Energy Efficient Beverage Vending Machines,” there are approximately 2.5 million food and beverage vending machines in the United States. FHV-LLC claimed to have estimated that 35% of these vending machines are situated in locations that meet their minimum demographic and foot-traffic requirements for placement. Therefore expansion is certainly a goal for the already net income reporting development stage company.
For the year ended December 31, 2012, Fresh Healthy Vending had revenues totaling $10,137,088 versus total revenues of $6,744,968 for the year ended December 31, 2011. The increase of $3,392,120 or 50.3% came mainly due to an increase in net vending machine sales of $2,969,595. Growing from 103 franchisees at the end of 2011 to 145 at December 31, 2012 is clearly a sign of doing it and doing it right.
How right? Income from operations increased from $513,421 in 2011 to $1,055,818 in 2012, an increase of $542,397 or 105.6%.
If you want to see how big of an impact that was, just look back another year when net revenues grew to $6,744,968 for the year ended December 31, 2011 from $814,271 for the year ended December 31, 2010. That’s an increase of $5,930,697 or 728.3%!
On July 19, 2013, Fresh Healthy Vending issued convertible notes payable totaling $191,000 to 3 pre-existing note holders. Maturing in 18 months with an interest rate of 3% per annum, the notes are convertible into shares of GEEM stock at the rate of $1.25 per share at the option of the holder. Operations have primarily been funded through borrowings from Nicholas Yates, the company’s major shareholder, and plans moving forward include the following:
• Funding the purchase and operation of corporate owned vending machines (included within our private placement memorandum to investors was a commitment to invest $700,000 for Company owned machines);
• Launching an international franchising program; and
• Investing in the development of new vending machine technology.
Now do you see why GEEM, or whatever the ticker symbol may become (FHVC and FHVI seem to b the most likely assuming they opt for a change), should be on you list of OTC stocks to watch?
