Tetra Bio-Pharma (TSXV:TBP; OTCQB:TBPMF) completed the sale of all its shares of GrowPros MMP to North Bud Farms.

As quoted in the press release:

Transaction Details
As previously disclosed, Tetra will receive total proceeds in the amount of $350,000, including an initial $175,000 that was paid in December 2017, as well as 15,000,000 common shares of the Purchaser, representing approximately 41% of the Purchaser’s currently issued and outstanding share capital. It remains Tetra’s intention to have such shares be transferred to its shareholders as a dividend in kind on a pro-rata basis, concurrently with the proposed initial public offering of the Purchaser and listing of the shares of the Purchaser on a recognized Canadian stock exchange. The transaction is structured as a sale with a resolutory condition whereby, in the event that the initial public offering of the Purchaser is not completed prior to June 30, 2018 (or such other date as may be agreed upon by the Corporation and the Purchaser), the sale of the shares of GrowPros will be deemed to have never occurred and title to the shares of GrowPros will revert back to Tetra, and in turn GrowPros would then remain a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tetra.

As part of the transaction, North Bud has agreed to advance GrowPros’ late stage ACMPR application (submitted in November 2014) through the application process with Health Canada. In addition, the Purchaser intends to begin the phase 1 build out of a 50,000-square foot GMP grade indoor production facility in late Q1 2018. The facility is located on 130 acres of agricultural land in Venosta, Quebec (40 min north of Ottawa).  The Purchaser believes that the property can be developed into a total of 1.5 million square feet of production space. The parties intend to enter into an agreement shortly so that Tetra will be granted access to future licenced cannabis production by GrowPros, securing another source of pharmaceutical GMP quality cannabis.
