Vancouver British Columbia / May 20, 2020 – AgraFlora Organics International Inc. (“AgraFlora” or the “Company”) (CSE: AGRA) (Frankfurt: PU31) (OTCPK: AGFAF) is pleased to announce its wholly owned subsidiary Sustainable Growth Strategic Capital Corp. (“SGSC” or “the Company”) a federally licensed cannabis company based in the Greater Toronto Area (“GTA”) has entered into an extraction partnership (the “Extractor Partnership” or the “Agreement”) for hemp processing with a top tier extractor located in Quebec.
The Extractor Partnership is in conjunction with SGSC’s joint venture partner Micro C45 Inc. (“MC45”), a Canadian hemp company that has developed a unique post-harvest mechanical separation process for hemp biomass that results in higher extraction values (“Supply Partners”).
Under the terms of the agreement, the Supply Partners will deliver to the extractor, 44,000kg of hemp biomass for crude and distillate extraction in four installments over six months. As the Supply Partners, MC45 will provide the high quality hemp biomass to the extractor with SGSC serving as the funding partner.
“Recognizing our extraction partner’s commitment to excellence with their GMP certification and advanced high volume extraction capabilities for hemp, we see this new partnership as a nod to our capacity to deliver a technically superior extraction-ready material and the ability to propel higher yields and throughputs resulting in efficiencies that drive costs down,” stated Brandon Boddy, AgraFlora Executive Chairman and CEO. “The efficiencies garnered from higher quality input material will finally allow for reduced production costs in creating CBD products derived from hemp, ultimately allowing for more economical solutions for users and patients in health & wellness products, as well as across multiple medical product formats.”
Furthermore, the Company announces it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement of up to 26,666,667 units of the company at a price of 7.5 cents per unit for gross proceeds of $2-million.
Each unit shall consist of one common share and one transferable share purchase warrant. Each warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one additional share of the company for a period of five years from closing at a price of 10 cents per share.
