Medbox Founder Comments on Affiliate Sales of Stock

Founder clarifies that sales were involuntary and have ceased
 LOS ANGELES, Calif., Feb. 14, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via PRWEB – P. Vincent Mehdizadeh — Founder and Majority Shareholder of Medbox, Inc. (MDBX) commented on recent sales by company affiliates.

According to Mehdizadeh, within the last 18 months he secured a credit line through a financial institution by pledging Medbox stock and used a large portion of the funds to loan to the public company. Since that point in time, a margin call occurred on the loan when the share price decreased to under $3 per share, causing a forced liquidation of shares to repay the credit line.

“Medbox was not in a position to pay back my note so these involuntary sales were transacted by my bank to recoup the loan, stated Vincent Mehdizadeh, Founder and Majority Shareholder of Medbox, Inc. “The credit line has been fully satisfied as of today’s date. In addition, I have ceased any and all trading activity on my regularly scheduled trading plans until further notice. I am also looking into re-investing into the company to recoup some of the shares I was forced to liquidate over the last couple weeks. I am still a long-term believer in this company and feel Medbox is positioned perfectly to be a leader in this new industry.”
