Origin House a leading North American cannabis products and brands company, today announced that it has signed a binding term sheet (the “Agreement”) with Alternative Medical Enterprises, LLC (“AltMed”) to convert the Company’s 3.5 [percent] royalty interest on the sale of AltMed’s MÜV branded products (“MÜV”) into a combination of cash and 125 units of AltMed’s equity raising Origin House’s aggregate equity position in AltMed to 5.1 [percent].

Marc Lustig, Chairman and CEO of Origin House said, “AltMed has established itself as a successful cannabis business in the key markets of Florida and Arizona.

Pursuant to the Agreement, AltMed will issue 125 units to Origin House in addition to cash, as consideration for the Company’s royalty interest. Upon conversion of the royalty interest, Origin House will own an aggregate of 5.1 [percent] of AltMed.
