June 7, 2017 – Vancouver, B.C. – Alliance Growers Corp. (CSE: ACG; FWB: 1LA; WKN: A2DFYX) (“Alliance Growers” or the “Company”) announces that it has entered into an agreement with a German licensed producer applicant, Plantisaneco Gmbh (“Plantisaneco”), whereby Alliance Growers will earn a significant percentage of the equity in Plantisaneco in return for providing certain services and expertise.
No investment is required for the Company to earn its interest in Plantisaneco, and this strategic partnership contemplates securing long term tissue culture plantlet sale contracts for the Company’s Cannabis Botany Centre.
Alliance Growers’ participation has been included in Plantisaneco’s application filed with the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices in Germany on June 6, 2017. Approximately 25 to 30 applications were submitted through a tender process whereby each applicant is allowed to apply for up to seven of the ten license contracts being awarded. Successful applicants will be chosen based on the quality of the growers, their experience in the industry, an excellent business plan, and adequate funding to support the implementation of the plan. Plantisaneco applied for seven of the ten licenses to maximize its chances of success. They have organized an efficient funding program with a high probability of success through a three stage process beginning with angel investors, followed by well researched grants and ultimately loans from German banking institutions who support this industry.
Alliance Growers is building a Global Cannabis company using a long-term strategy to create a strong company with consistent and growing cash flow with the least amount of regulatory and general business restrictions. The arrangement with Plantisaneco augments the Company’s stated intent on the development of strategic partnerships with Licensed Producers and Licensed Producer applicants. Alliance Growers’ and partner growers like Canwe, Plantisaneco and other growers will form business synergies with the goal of creating a strong presence in the fast-growing global medical cannabis space, including the purchase and sale between the parties of live cannabis plants, tissue culture plantlets and other cannabis growers’ products and services.
Commenting on Alliances Growers’ new partnership, Dennis Petke, Alliance Growers’ President and CEO commented, “We have been working diligently to develop significant and valuable strategic partnerships with existing Licensed Growers and Licensed Grower Applicants in connection with the Cannabis Botany Centre. We are exceptionally pleased with the alliance with Plantisaneco as this is our initial “foot in the door” to the European market which is expected to be extremely significant in the years to come. Alliance is building relationships with the investment community simultaneously through a Class A preferred share offering which is expected to be very well received especially in light of this arrangement. Companies like Plantisaneco are a perfect fit with our long-term strategy for Alliance Growers to become a dominant player in the Cannabis space and successfully build strong shareholder value”.
Plantisaneco is currently a license applicant under the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices, in the Federal State of Germany. After the newly passed law for the prescription of medical cannabis and the loosening of the regulations that classified those people that are suffering as eligible, the estimated consumer market will grow rapidly to over 800,000 people within the next few years. To fill the demand, the federal agencies are seeking potential growers who will provide an excellent, high quality product. To benefit from the market opening, Plantisaneco is in the application process to obtain approval for growing licenses of up to 1400 KG of medical cannabis annually.
