("DOCC") for up to a $40 million investment at a price of approximately $0.45 per share for the retrofit of a large-scale medical cannabis cultivation operation in Delta, British Columbia.
Concurrently with the retrofit of the 2,200,000 square foot greenhouse complex located in Delta, BC, the Company has reached several important milestones in the past four months:
- $20 million investment received from DOCC for the previously announced Equity Participation and Earn-In Agreement,
- Cannabis supply agreement signed with Namaste Technologies for up to 25,000,000 grams of cannabis or 10% of total production from the Delta Greenhouse Complex for $4 per gram,
- Engaged good manufacturing practices (GMP) facility experts to design post production exports for the European Union (EU) in preparation for the first crop of cannabis to be planted at its the large-scale Delta Greenhouse Complex,
- Acquired the remaining interest in licensed producer AAA Heidelberg making it a wholly owned subsidiary,
- Propagation supply agreement signed with Cabbay Holdings Corp. to supply high-CBD cannabis plants for a 5-acre outdoor grow operation,

- Formed Glow Life Technologies in partnership with Relay Medical Corp. to pursue medical related technology opportunities in the global cannabis sector,
- Large library of cannabis seed varieties from diverse lineages acquired from a private genetics firm.
In addition, AgraFlora expects to be in receipt of the balance of the funds of the financing ($20 million) by March 31, 2019. Due to the size and complexity of the transaction, additional time is required to complete the transaction.
"We have made considerable progress over the past four months as we moved from an AMCPR applicant to an innovative high-quality licensed cannabis producer," said Derek Ivany, President and CEO of AgraFlora Organics. "We continue to move aggressively to prepare the Delta Greenhouse Complex for its first cannabis crop. We are focused on installing an advanced security system along with state-of-the-art lighting, watering and air purification technology to meet and exceed all regulatory and industry standards. We are also pursuing cannabis supply agreements with domestic and international customers in preparation for the first crop to be planted in Delta, BC. I would like to thank the project team for all their work and effort to keep the conversion of the Delta Greenhouse Complex on schedule and on budget. When at full capacity the Delta facility will be the second largest cannabis production site in Canada."
