About Garmatex Holdings Ltd. (GRMX)
Garmatex Holdings Ltd. holds a non-exclusive Master Sublicense Agreement with Garmatex Technologies, Inc. ("GTI"), whereby it was granted various intellectual property rights related to the design, development and manufacturing of various scientifically-engineered fabric technologies and performance technologies, including a patented T3® design, Bact-Out®, CoolSkin®, WarmSkin®, Kottinu™, ColdSkin™, SteelSkin™, Satinu™, CamoSkin™, RecoverySkin™, SlimSkin™, AbsorbSkin™ and IceSkin™. The Company commenced operations for this business on March 8, 2017.

The Company plans to provide performance fabric solutions in virtually every sector that has textile applications. Its primary strategy is to deploy its performance fabrics as a premium ingredient brand, similar to Gore-Tex® in the outerwear market, or akin to Intel® in the computer space. The Company believes that its future fabrics will be superior in performance relative to current market "standards" and will have a wide range of applications in multiple clothing and textile categories, including, but not limited to, sports apparel, medical, sleepwear, linens, undergarments, military, designer wear, protective, industrial and first responders.

The Company's business model is to co-develop fabric with manufacturers to obtain exclusive licenses of technology and purchase fabric technology to build on its technology portfolio. The Company plans to commercialize these inventions by selling bolts of fabric directly to retailers and wholesalers. The Company also plans to control the proprietary process of the technology for IP protection and does not intend to own any manufacturing facilities, which are intended to allow it to scale.

The Company is in the market to acquire additional technologies from inventors looking for a commercialization partner.
