Columbus, Ohio and Los Angeles, California, Oct. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Better For You Wellness, Inc. (OTC: BFYW), formerly known as Fast Track Solutions, Inc. (OTC: FTRK) ("Better For You Wellness" or the "Company"), an Ohio-based blank check company, is pleased to announce that, further to the Company’s October 25, 2021 press release, it has also entered into a non-binding letter of intent (“LOI”) to acquire Releford Enterprises, Inc. d/b/a MLC Beauty (“Mary Louise Cosmetics”) located in Los Angeles, California.

Mary Louise Cosmetics and Ms. Releford have been featured in CNBC, TechCrunch, the Los Angeles Business Journal, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Refinery29, HYPEBAE, and more.
"When I started Mary Louise Cosmetics as a side hustle in my dorm room at Howard University, I always envisioned that it would become something much larger," commented Akilah Releford, Founder and CEO of Mary Louise Cosmetics. "I'm excited for what the future holds with Better For You Wellness, as the deal will allow the brand to grow to new heights."
Pursuant to the terms of the LOI, the consideration contemplated for the acquisition is to be paid entirely in restricted common shares of Better For You Wellness, Inc. to be issued following the closing of the acquisition. Under the LOI, Ms. Releford will continue to represent and guide Mary Louise Cosmetics as its Chief Visionary Officer and utilize her expertise to launch future products and initiatives for the brand.
