VANCOUVER, May 5, 2017 /CNW/ - INVICTUS MD STRATEGIES CORP. ("Invictus MD" or the "Company") (TSXV: IMH; OTC: IVITF; FRA: 8IS) Invictus MD is pleased to announce that its management team will visit TSX Venture Exchange (TSXV) on May 5, 2017 and will be opening the trading day.
"When we open the trading day, we share this celebration with all those who have contributed to our success - especially our team, the board, advisers and investors," said Dan Kriznic, Executive Chairman of Invictus MD. "From our early beginnings three years ago, with a clear goal and the desire to do something remarkable within this budding marketplace, we raised sufficient capital to make investment commitments for the construction of a number of cannabis production facilities across Canada. We have always taken pride in knowing we're working towards becoming a source of uncompromising quality of medical cannabis and to be ready for the future new recreational market upon legalization. Now, three years later, we're thrilled to be on Bay Street."
"The Company is poised for a tremendous amount of production profile growth and other value-generating milestones in the near future. Cultivation has started at Acreage Pharms, having received their license to cultivate under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations ("ACMPR")," stated Trevor Dixon, President and CEO of Invictus MD. "Planning the Phase II build out has begun; the 150 acre land package provides the capability to construct facilities to keep pace with the growing medical cannabis market and meet the demand that the coming adult recreational cannabis use will create. AB Laboratories Inc. ("AB Labs"), a Licensed Producer under ACMPR, is on schedule to meet full production capacity by the end of May 2017. AB Ventures Inc. ("AB Ventures"), an incorporated company formed to develop a second licensed expansion facility through its common ownership with AB Labs, closed its 100-acre land acquisition on May 1, 2017 and once licensed under the ACMPR, will be used for future cannabis cultivation.
Considering the magnitude of AB Ventures' land holdings and future production facilities, and assuming AB Ventures obtains a license to produce the quantity forecasted for the proposed facility, we will have the capacity for significant growth to keep pace with the growing medical and future recreational demand."
