TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / November 12, 2018 / CordovaCann Corp. (CSE: CDVA) (OTCQB: LVRLF) (''Cordova'' or the ''Company''), a cannabis-focused consumer products company, announced today that the Company has entered into a letter of intent, dated November 9, 2018, to acquire cannabis-related assets (the ''Assets'') utilized by Blue Roots LLC (''Blue Roots'') for a total purchase price of $3,500,000 United States Dollars (USD). Blue Roots is an owner and operator of a Marijuana Producer Tier II license issued by the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board.
Blue Roots, headquartered near Spokane, Washington, produces high-end flower and a wide variety of end products for the growing Washington cannabis market under the Blue Roots brand name. It currently operates a 30,000 square foot facility that houses 7,500 square feet of cultivation, extraction, processing, manufacturing and a commercial kitchen. Blue Roots has also secured a Marijuana Producer Tier III license and is in midst of expanding into an additional 30,000 square feet given their increasing distribution and consumer demand for its products. The buildout of this additional facility is expected to cost approximately USD $3,000,000, which will be incurred over a six month period post-closing. Blue Roots is led by a strong operational team that will continue to operate the Assets after the transaction has closed.
The Assets to be acquired include leases for two 30,000 square foot facilities in Airway Heights, Washington, equipment and other intellectual property utilized by Blue Roots. Under the terms of the agreement, the Company has agreed to purchase the Assets in exchange for a cash payment of USD $3,500,000 and the vendors or their designee retaining a 30% carried interest in the Assets, all due on closing. The transaction as contemplated is expected to close on or before February 1, 2019, subject to certain closing conditions, including but not limited to, satisfactory due diligence and approval from the Company's board of directors.
Mr. Taz Turner, Chairman and CEO of Cordova, commented, ''Entrance into the Washington market has been one of our top priorities over the past few months. This acquisition provides Cordova with a strong existing manufacturing and distribution platform with proven products under a respected brand, which has been growing nicely and has generated over $3 million in revenues and $700 thousand in positive cash flow year-to-date.'' He added, ''The Company plans to further grow these operations and to increase its reach into the Washington market as it continues to expand its multi-jurisdictional platform.''
