Vodis Pharmaceuticals Inc. (CSE: VP / FSE: 1JV1) announces that it has extended the financing with Canaccord Capital (previously announced June 20 th , 2017) to September 30, 2017 (the “Offering”).

The Company anticipates closing its initial tranche of the Offering in the near term.


Ivan Miliovski, Vodis’ CEO states, “We remain engaged with Canaccord and are working with their team to raise the necessary capital to execute on the remainder of our 2017 business initiatives.  The delay in closing has been caused by due diligence taking longer than expected and anticipate we can look to close on additional funds as summer comes to an end.  The entire sector has witnessed a correction in valuations – increasing the duration of thorough due diligence.  However, Vodis remains well positioned with an extremely attractive capital structure.”

In addition, the Company is very pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Earl Oliver to direct and control the Company’s application with Health Canada.  Dr. Oliver is a technology entrepreneur and activist investor.  He holds a B.Math and Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Waterloo and is a large investor in Vodis.

Dr. Oliver states, “The company has been, justifiably, focused on expanding its brand and turn-key model in the lucrative Washington State, and broader American, recreational market.  However, as Canada transitions towards a recreational market, it is apparent that the Company’s application with Health Canada requires full-time attention.  I look forward to guiding the Company through a successful application process.  Progress updates will be forthcoming.”

Vodis USA’s Washington State tenant has informed the Company that they changed their name from Our Church International LLC to Premium Cannabis Producers LLC (the “Tenant”).  Under the terms of the licensing deal announced February 23, 2017, all product sold by the Tenant are sold under the Vodis USA brand.

The Tenant also reported an outbreak of powder mildew that affected production and sales late June and into July. Proper measures were taken to correct the deficiency and there is now no evidence of contamination present on site.  The Tenant has also confirmed that all lots harvested in the month of August have successful passed microbiological, as well as all other quality assurance testing requirements, by the Washington State Liquor & Cannabis Board.
