The Company has also Executed a Share Purchase Agreement to Acquire up to 34% of a Cannabis Retail-Focused Technology Venture Based in the United States
Vancouver, British Columbia / February 9, 2022 (Globe Newswire) – Agra Ventures Ltd. (“AGRA” or the “Company”) (CSE: AGRA) (Frankfurt: PU31) (OTCPK: AGFAF), a growth-oriented and diversified company focused on the international cannabis industry, is pleased to announce that it has recorded over $318,000 in revenue with an additional $173,000 under signed contract from the sale of dried cannabis flower on a wholesale basis over the two-month period from December 7, 2021 to February 8, 2022. The record result for AGRA is the aggregate of over 175 kilograms of cannabis contracted under four separate transactions, including under the previously announced offtake agreement as well as independent of that agreement, for an average price of in excess of $2.75 per gram.
All of the dried flower was grown, cultivated and processed at the Company’s Boundary Bay facility in Delta, British Columbia. Using its own genetics, AGRA’s employees and a small number of advisors with senior levels of expertise in cannabis growing have worked together to produce multiple crops of desirable strains in multiple batches over the last several months. As a result, the Company is receiving increased interest for its dried flower from licensed producers of cannabis across Canada.
The Company also announces that it has entered into a definitive share purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Twenty One Investment Holdings, Inc. (“Twenty One”), a privately held Delaware company, and all shareholders of Twenty One (the “Selling Shareholders”) to acquire up to 34% of the issued and outstanding common shares of Twenty One (the “Acquisition”). Twenty One is the owner of a technology platform supporting retailers and their customers with in-store and online cannabis buying experiences in the United States.
The closing of the Acquisition took place on February 8, 2022 (the “Initial Closing”) as AGRA purchased 500,000 newly issued common shares of Twenty One (the “Issued Shares”) directly from Twenty One and 500,000 common shares of Twenty One from the Selling Shareholders (the “Transferred Shares”). Issued Shares and Transferred Shares were sold to AGRA at a price of $1.00 per Twenty One share. As a result of the Initial Closing, AGRA holds 15.38% of the common shares of Twenty One.
Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, within six months of the Initial Closing, AGRA will purchase additional common shares of Twenty One (the “Additional Shares”) for the Purchase Price for an aggregate investment of at least $1,000,000 and up to $1,500,000 (the “Second Closing”) at a price of $1.00 per Twenty One share. One-half of the Additional Shares will be sold and issued by, and purchased from, Twenty One and one-half of the Additional Shares will be sold and transferred by the Selling Shareholders. Immediately subsequent to the Second Closing, AGRA will hold between approximately 28.57% and 34.48% of the common shares of Twenty One.
“The last two months have exciting for AGRA as a record amount of revenue was recorded based on growing high quality cannabis and selling it on a wholesale basis, consistent with our refocused competitive strategy. I am grateful to our talented and dedicated staff at the Boundary Bay greenhouse for growing such desirable crops and to our external partners for doing a great job to get the batches to the industry,” said Elise Coppens, CEO of AGRA.
“I am also excited for AGRA to acquire a significant part of Twenty One and technology that is focused on the US cannabis retail sector. Our goals of generating revenue from the sale of cannabis, positioning Farmako for success in Europe and finding a way into the US cannabis market in a legal way and at a reasonable cost are all in the process of being achieved, which is a fantastic way to start 2022,” added Ms. Coppens.
