VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AgraFlora Organics International Inc. (“AgraFlora” or the “Company”) (CSE: AGRA) (Frankfurt: PU31) (OTCPK: PUFXF), a growth oriented and diversified international cannabis company, is pleased to announce that further to a commercial rights and supply agreement (the “Agreement”), dated May 22, 2019, the Company has entered into a complementary cooperation agreement (the “Co-Op Agreement”).
Under the terms of the Co-Op Agreement, a party to the original Agreement has subscribed to a non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) at a 28.2 per-cent premium to AgraFlora’s five day VWAP of C$0.234; for total proceeds of C$2,000,000. In consideration for the Offering, AgraFlora has agreed to defer payment (the “Deferred Payments”) for the initial C$2,000,000 purchase of dried cannabis flower, under the previously announced Agreement. Such Deferred Payments shall be repaid in equal portions of C$250,000 across the subsequent C$8,000,000 in anticipated dried cannabis flower purchases.
In connection with the Offering, the Company has issued 6,666,667 transferable special warrants (the “Special Warrants”) to one purchaser at a price of C$0.30 per Special Warrant. Each Special Warrant is convertible into units (the “Units”) with each Unit consisting of one common share (the “Shares”) of the Company and one transferable common share purchase warrant (the “Warrants”), with each Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one additional Share of the Company at a price of C$0.50 per Share for a period of 36 months from the date of issuance of the Warrants.
All securities issued are subject to a four-month hold period pursuant to applicable securities laws of Canada, after which time the Special Warrants are convertible into the Units.
The European medical cannabis cannabinoid-derived CPG markets continue to mature, thus affording qualified market participants to achieve robust margins via the distribution of premium cannabis flower and associated derivative products. The Agreement affords AgraFlora’s commercial partners with a consistent supply of high-grade cannabis flower, permitting the continued penetration of high-value EU patient populations.
The aforementioned Agreements are contingent on AgraFlora’s receipt of a standard cultivation and accompanying sales licences from Health Canada for its flagship Delta Greenhouse Complex. AgraFlora’s Delta Greenhouse Complex is widely considered to be one of the most technically advanced and environmentally friendly greenhouse operations in the world, equipped with industry-leading cultivation infrastructure.
