VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 1, 2019 /CNW/ -- MYM Nutraceuticals Inc. ("MYM" or the "Company") (CSE: MYM) (CSE: MYM.CN) (OTCBB: MYMMF) is pleased to announce that it has closed a $5.5 million debt financing commitment with Trichome Financial Corp. ("Trichome Financial" or "Trichome") which will allow the Company to fully fund its strategic plan through 2020.
"After considerable due diligence, MYM and Trichome Financial have closed on a debt financing commitment of $5.5 million," said Howard Steinberg, CEO of MYM. "The commitment is an incredible vote of confidence for our plans to become global leaders in the cultivation, extraction, and distribution of CBD-rich hemp. The capital raise is a significant milestone that allows the Company to fully fund our strategic plan through 2020."
MYM currently has three CBD-rich hemp cultivation and extraction projects, two medical cannabis cultivation projects, and three CBD isolate distribution offices in Mexico, Australia, and the United Kingdom. Through 2020, the plan forecasts cultivating over 5 million pounds of CBD rich biomass that if converted into isolate, as per the plan, will produce 108,800 kilograms of CBD isolate.

"We have been thoroughly impressed with the level of expertise and sophistication that MYM's new senior leadership team has displayed as they execute a pivot towards becoming leaders in all aspects of CBD-rich hemp" said Michael Ruscetta, CEO of Trichome. "This transaction is another example of Trichome providing flexible and timely capital fully secured against all the assets and licenses of MYM, which we expect will deliver extremely attractive returns".
The Trichome financing ("Trichome Financing") is in the form of a senior secured term loan of up to $5.5 million with an interest a rate of 12% per annum and which matures in 12 months following closing, with an option to extend for another 6 months. The Trichome Financing will consist of two tranches, one for $3.0 million advanced at the time of closing and one for $2.5 million currently expected to be advanced within a few months. In connection with the Trichome Financing, MYM has released 4,000,000 warrants and will release an additional 1,000,000 warrants upon closing of the second tranche. Each warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.30 for a period of three years from the date of issue. In connection with the Trichome Financing, the Company has provided Trichome with security against all of its assets and licenses.
Howard Steinberg, CEO and Director of MYM, is also a director of Trichome and as such has recused himself from Trichome's board on this matter.
