Irwin Naturals Acquires Ketamine Health Centers - a Force0six Digital Marketing Client
Irwin Naturals Inc. (CSE: IWIN) (OTC: IWINF) (FRA: 97X) (“Irwin” or the “Company”) announced today it has taken the next step in the execution of its ketamine clinic roll-up strategy – a move the Company says is motivated by an intention to become the world’s largest chain of psychedelic mental health clinics.
The Company entered into an acquisition agreement (the “Agreement”) dated April 17, 2022 with KHC Capital Group, LLC and related entities (“Ketamine Health Centers”), which owns a chain of five ketamine treatment clinics in Florida with an additional partnership contract with two affiliate clinics in Mexico. Force0six, a San Diego based marketing agency, provides all digital marketing and lead generation efforts as the selected vendor for Ketamine Health Centers.
Irwin’s CEO, Klee Irwin, said, “The number of patients treated per month at Ketamine Health Centers makes this acquisition in our national roll-up particularly exciting. With each acquired clinic to be renamed Irwin Naturals Emergence, we are the world’s first household name to enter the psychedelic mental health treatment sector. This transaction brings the total of our US-based clinics to six locations.”
Irwin continued, “We see ourselves as the initial notable first mover and will be leveraging our brand equity to expand rapidly as society embraces the psychedelic mental health revolution. With nearly 80% of US households familiar with the trusted Irwin brand, it will be the welcome face of a familiar friend in a crowd of strangers – making this life-altering solution a bit less intimidating to those in need.”
Chief Medical Officer of Ketamine Health Centers, Dr. Raul Cruz, commented, “What impressed us about Irwin’s approach to America’s mental health crisis is their philosophy of using their existing national scale to drive down patient costs, while being profitable at all stages of the expansion. That’s unusual. A key deciding factor for me getting behind this deal was the March 24th press release of Irwin Naturals titled Planned Strategy to Add New Mental Health Treatments and Collaborate with 3rd Party Payors. This is because we also recognized the power of synergizing ketamine treatment with TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) and stellate ganglia block procedures. These three treatments are profound when used individually and are even more successful when used in combination. We have been having great success with these additional treatment modalities in our clinics. Many of the publicly traded players in the space have business models that justify losing money and charge non-accessible prices to patients. Irwin Naturals management has proven itself capable of building a national brand with an exceptionally loyal customer base.”
