KELOWNA, BC, Jan. 22, 2018 /CNW/ - GreenTec Holdings Ltd. ("GTEC" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the completion of a non-brokered private placement financing (the "Offering"). Pursuant to the Offering, the Company issued an aggregate of 19,233,042 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.60 per Unit for gross proceeds of approximately $11,540,000. Each Unit was comprised of one common share ("Share") of the Company and one-half (1/2) of one Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant shall entitle the holder to acquire one Share at a price of $1.20 until January 19, 2021.
In connection with the Offering, finders' fees were paid in cash to certain eligible finders and 323,160 finders' warrants ("Finders' Warrants") were issued to eligible finders pursuant to the Offering. Each Finders' Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one Share for $1.20 until January 19, 2021.

Manitoba Retail Application
GTEC is also pleased to announce that on December 22, 2017, it delivered a competitive response (the "Response") to the Government of Manitoba's Request for Proposals for Retail Cannabis Stores in the Province of Manitoba.
The Response was delivered as part of a joint venture among Apollo Medical Society (a municipally licensed dispensary in the City of Vancouver), The Clinic Network Canada Inc. (which operates a chain of 38 medical cannabis clinics across Canada) and The Tribal Wi-Chi-Way-Win Capital Corporation ("TWCC"). TWCC provides financial resources and business opportunities to qualified Aboriginal entrepreneurs and businesses in Manitoba. TWCC is wholly-owned by five Tribal Councils and five independent Indigenous groups located in Manitoba.
If successful, GTEC intends to have 25 retail locations operational in Manitoba by July 2, 2018, with the ability to roll out an additional 15 locations thereafter in consultation with the province. All retail construction projects and staffing will be, to the best extent possible, sourced through TWCC in order to permit the involvement of as many members of the Indigenous community as possible within the retail network.
The Government of Manitoba is currently reviewing proposals and anticipates announcing the successful applicants by February, 2018.
GTEC has also completed the acquisition of a warehouse located in Kelowna, BC for the purposes of submitting an application to the Office of Controlled Substances for a Dealer's License. The site will be developed in a phased approach and will serve as a Good Manufacturing Practices ("GMP") grade facility with extraction, formulation, compounding and export capabilities to support GTEC's Licensed Producers and the global medical market. GTEC also intends to utilize this facility to manufacture edible products that are expected to be incorporated into Health Canada's regulatory framework in 2019. Upon Health Canada approval of phase one, the facility will be able to produce up to 24,500 grams of cannabis oil per day (equivalent to more than 8,500 kilograms per annum), with capabilities to increase production capacity in future phase development.
"With the closing of this financing, GTEC is now positioned to fully finance the acquisition of Project CraftCo and to complete the construction and development of all of the late stage applicants in our portfolio to be cultivation ready in time for federal legalization of recreational cannabis in Canada. Executing on our plans for cultivation, extraction and retail distribution, we believe that the company is positioned to be one of Canada's leading vertically integrated cannabis companies", said Norton Singhavon, Chairman & CEO of GTEC.
