PharmaCan Capital Corp., doing business as Cronos Group (TSX VENTURE: MJN) (“Cronos Group” or “the Company”), has divested its equity interest in Vert/Green Medical Inc. (“Vert”). Vert was acquired by Canopy Growth Corporation (“Canopy”) in a share-for-share transaction that Canopy today announced has closed. As a result of the transaction, the Company today acquired, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Hortican Inc., 7,374 shares of Canopy and may acquire up to 29,498 additional shares of Canopy subject to escrow conditions relating to certain licensing milestones for Vert.
Canopy has announced that as part of the transaction it will immediately repay Vert’s debt, which includes the $422,933.45 currently owed to Cronos Group.
“As we concentrate on optimizing and expanding our wholly-owned subsidiaries – Peace Naturals Project Inc. and In The Zone Produce Inc., we welcome the opportunity to monetize non-core assets,” said Cronos Group CEO Mike Gorenstein. “This transaction allows us to secure non-dilutive capital to further develop our core assets.”
