CordovaCann Announces Letter of Intent to Acquire Ontario-Based Licensed Producer Applicant
TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / September 5, 2018 / CordovaCann Corp. (CSE: CDVA) (OTCQB: LVRLF) ("Cordova" or the "Company"), a cannabis-focused consumer products company, announced today that it has entered into a letter of intent (the "LOI") to acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of 2366607 Ontario Inc. d/b/a Alterna Medicinals Canada ("Alterna") for the total purchase price of $1,693,750 Canadian dollars and 1,204,167 shares in the common stock of Cordova, contingent upon Alterna obtaining receipt of a License to Cultivate under Health Canada's Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) for Alterna's facility in Listowel, Ontario. Furthermore, Cordova has agreed to loan up to $1 million Canadian dollars to Alterna to fund the required capital expenditures to advance the application process for such License to Cultivate.
Alterna is an applicant to become a Licensed Producer under the ACMPR program and was provided a Confirmation of Readiness by Health Canada earlier this year for its 14,000 square foot leased-facility located in Listowel, Ontario. The facility has future expansion capabilities across its seven acre site.
"Expanding our cultivation capabilities into the Canadian market is an essential step in achieving our goal of capturing greater international market share," stated Mr. Taz Turner, Chairman and CEO of Cordova. "While providing access to the Canadian market is of significant importance to us, the acquisition of Alterna is also expected to provide us with the ability to distribute our branded, formulated products to international markets, furthering our mission to establish a global cannabis manufacturing and distribution platform."
The transaction as contemplated is subject to standard terms and conditions of transactions of this nature, including but not limited to the completion of satisfactory due diligence and the approval of Cordova's board of directors.
