(“PanCann“) to finance the purchase and construction of a proposed second production facility to be identified, in exchange for equity participation in, and a production yield allocation from the proposed facility.
This agreement, if funded, would allow Beleave to substantially increase its potential production capacity on a non-dilutive basis to Beleave’s shareholders.

The parties will work cooperatively to identify an appropriate second site to be acquired and developed by a newly formed special purpose subsidiary of Beleave (“NewCo“).

In return, PanCann will receive a 50% equity interest in NewCo and 50% of the proceeds (net of certain costs) of future wholesale or retail sales completed by NewCo.

This will increase our top line while eliminating the need for capital expenditure,” says Roger Ferreira, CEO and Director of Beleave. “A completely accretive agreement for Beleave Inc., and the start of a new and exciting partnership with PanCann.”
The agreement remains subject to a number of precedent conditions, including availability of financing on the part of PanCann, receipt by Beleave of applicable Health Canada and other regulatory approvals, due diligence by the parties, execution of definitive agreements, and the ability of the parties to agree on future construction budgets and timelines.
