As of YE 2019, NJAM operations has recognized unaudited revenues of $1.2M and positive EBITDA of $670K. The Company expects a strong growth continuing in 2020.

“The revised terms of NJAM means that we have already seen over a 1X return on our total investment, with a significant reduction in current liabilities and moving forward, any future growth will be solely beneficial and non-dilutive for the Company and its shareholders,” said Prad Sekar, CEO of CB2 Insights.


The Company has also issued an aggregate of 1,218,756 in common shares to Merida Capital as part of its interest payment on a debt note.  In addition, the Company has agreed to issue an aggregate of 2,487,127 common shares as part of a debt settlement on current liabilities of which approximately 1.8 million shares will be issued to insiders and directors in lieu of certain compensation.

Sekar continued, “With the settlement of debt with shares, the Company has reduced its near term liabilities and cash exposure which brings us closer to our continued target to be EBITDA positive by Q2 2020. With the successful uptake of the warrant program in December, 2019, the Company remains committed to refrain from any significant future dilutive share issuances to finance operations and near-term organic growth.”

All share issuance is subject to approval by the Canadian Securities Exchange.
