AgraFlora Organics to Acquire Organic Flower’s Assets
AgraFlora Organics International Inc. (“AgraFlora” or the “Company“) (CSE: AGRA) (PU31.F) (OTCPK: PUFXF), a growth oriented and diversified international cannabis company, and Organic Flower Investments Group Inc. (CSE:SOW)(2K6.F)(QILFF) (“Organic Flower” or“OFIG”), are pleased to announce they have entered into a binding Letter of Intent (“LOI”) whereby AgraFlora will acquire 100 per cent of Organic Flower’s assets including OFIG’s 20% interest in the Delta Greenhouse Complex, an array of domestic downstream/product formulation operations and the rights to an trans-European distribution network (the “Proposed Transaction”).
It is anticipated that the sale price for the assets will be comprised of 1.15 shares of Agraflora for each one (1) issued and outstanding share of OFIG at the time of closing (the “Consideration Shares”), with the Consideration Shares to be distributed to the shareholders of OFIG. Closing of the Proposed Transaction remains subject to applicable corporate, securities and exchange approvals and/or filings, as the case may be.
The Proposed Transaction will thereby reunite 70 per cent ownership of Propagation Services Canada Ltd. and the 2.2 million square foot greenhouse complex in Delta, BC (the “Delta Greenhouse Complex”), under the AgraFlora corporate umbrella. The combined interest in 2020-funded production of the Delta Greenhouse Complex is forecasted to be 175,000,000 grams of premium dried cannabis flower.
AgraFlora’s Delta Greenhouse Complex is widely considered to be one of the most technically-advanced and environmentally-friendly greenhouse operations in the World, which boasts industry leading cultivation infrastructure including:
- Fully integrated on-site natural gas-powered power plant:
- Proprietary energy efficient air exchange;
- Advanced climate and humidity control management infrastructure;
- Ebb and flow watering systems to enhance complete irrigation recapture and water treatment;
- 1.5-million-gallon hot water storage tank configured to store energy produced during the day, for redistribution during non-peak hours, thereby increasing operational efficiencies and reducing associated energy costs; and,
- Multistage supplemental lighting augmented by natural sunlight to foster an optimized illumination equilibrium.
“This is a paradigmatic transaction for AgraFlora, which will consistently amplify long-term shareholder value as the combined entity continues to execute on its corporate roadmap,” said Brandon Boddy , Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of AgraFlora Organics International Inc. “The reunification of the 2.2 million square foot Delta Greenhouse Complex will create the critical scale needed in today’s evolving landscape for Canadian cannabis producers. The combined entity will be equipped with world-class upstream cultivation assets and diverse downstream capabilities that will act as a beachhead into the 700-million-person European marketplace, as well as a crystalize a distinctive first mover advantage within the edibles, cannabinoid-infused beverage and product formulation market verticals.”
AgraFlora’s recently announced 100,000 kg off-take agreement with ICC International Cannabis Corp. coupled with Organic Flower’s revenue sharing and distribution arrangement with ICC will allow the combined AgraFlora-Organic Flower entity to capture significant cash flows at both the upstream and downstream levels; realizing material exposure to both the wholesale and eventual retail distribution of dried cannabis into high value European territories.
AgraFlora’s Delta operations are set to emerge as the World’s second largest cannabis cultivation operation under glass and, coupled with Organic Flower’s unique portfolio of downstream and product formulation assets, will solidify a first-mover trajectory into the second phase of cannabis normalization.
To date, Organic Flower has assembled a unique portfolio of downstream and product formulation operations/assets including:
