“I have huge plans for ONIT Sciences and I am extremely excited to start working with the management team,” Mr. Kosty said. “I am very familiar with the company’s amazing products, and in particular their flagship ONIT Grow formulation. This product is, I believe, one of the most unique and powerful bio-stimulants and surfactants ever produced. This fact that it’s all-natural, organic, non-GMO, and polymer-free truly opens the door to global applications in a myriad of cultures.

“To start, I am building a sales team of proven professionals who have delivered for me before, to bring ONIT Sciences products to their vast networks,” Kosty continued. “Second, I am creating a large-scale distribution center at the Netherlands, which will ensure the material and professional support of our customers in the European Union. Thirdly, I introduce ONIT to a large farm in South Africa where I was the lead consultant, which will result in immediate and large orders. This will be done in concert with the field trials the company has underway in South Africa and Malawi for rice, sugar cane and hemp. I understand that the company will provide me with many ongoing business opportunities to pursue in India, Saudi Arabia, Italy, Belize, Colombia, Brazilthe UK and my home country Canada. This is a fantastic opportunity for me professionally, and I think also for the company, to benefit from my proven ability to open new markets and generate interest and sales for excellent products like ONIT Grow and ONIT Input Plus.”

Mr. Kosty will receive the resources and support necessary to expand operations in accordance with a detailed strategic plan that he is creating in conjunction with management. This plan will include support for industry events, field trials and studies, marketing and sales activities, and necessary travel. In addition, he will be required to document processes and develop standard operating procedures (SOPs) that will allow programs to be more easily replicable from one territory to another.

“Mike is one of the best known and most respected consultants in the world. And he has worked extensively in the industry for over 20 years, with a global focus for the past 10+ years,” noted Gerry Martin, CEO of ONIT Sciences. “He knows farmers in literally over 100 countries, as well as the leaders of the largest agricultural conglomerates in the world. This means that he is uniquely positioned to help ONIT Sciences gain access to decision-makers who know and trust him, reducing sales cycle times significantly and achieve our revenue and growth goals. Additionally, he has managed or sold to many people in the industry who have gone on to take on jobs at companies that would be ideal distribution partners or merger, or even acquirers, of ONIT.

Although Mr. Kosty’s title suggests an international orientation, he has worked extensively within North America and has been responsible for building 290 farms producing over 5 billion hemp seeds per year. He has extensive experience not only in sales and marketing, but also in finance, international trade and research and development.

“Mike is a perfect fit for ONIT,” explained Jeff Moses, marketing director at ONIT Sciences. “We are at the right stage of growth to maximize the value he can bring to us. We have so many business development opportunities underway that he will quickly have his hands full, helping us deliver our current pipeline. Additionally, his plans for the business are truly breathtaking in scope and perfectly aligned with management’s vision. Finally, the timing is right, with challenges in the fertilizer supply chain and constant pressure from consumers, environmental groups and governments to provide sustainable, organic solutions to farmers that won’t sacrifice yields or yields.”
