ALLIANCE GROWERS UPDATES PROGRESS ON LATE FILING OF 2017 AUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

January 12, 2018 – Vancouver, B.C. – Alliance Growers Corp. (CSE: ACG; FWB: 1LA; WKN: A2DFYX) (“Alliance Growers” or the “Company”) reports continued progress toward the filing of the 2017 Audited Financial Statements. During this process Alliance Growers continues to work on its projects and is looking forward to disclosing key new developments as they unfold. These new developments, along with new key relationships in the Cannabis space, will continue to grow and advance the Company, providing value to all its shareholders.

On January 8, 2018 the Company disclosed that the filings of the Company’s audited annual financial statements for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2017, the related management’s discussion and analysis and the certification of the annual filings for the year ended August 31, 2017 (collectively, the “2017 Annual Financial Statements”) were not completed by the deadline of December 29, 2017. As a result, the British Columbia Securities Commission issued a cease trade order (the “Cease Trade Order”) against the Company and securities have been halted from trading on the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE”).

The Company continues to progress with its auditors to file the 2017 Annual Financial Statements, which the Company expects to be completed soon, and Alliance will resume trading.  Once the 2017 Annual Financial Statements are filed, the Company will apply to have the Cease Trade Order revoked.

The Company wishes to thank investors for their support and patience as it progresses during this exciting time for the cannabis industry. Despite this temporary trading halt, Alliance expects a significant growth year in 2018.

About Alliance Growers

Alliance Growers Corp is a diversified cannabis company driven by the Company’s ‘Four Pillars’ Organization Plan – Cannabis Botany Centre, Strategic ACMPR Investments, CBD Oil Supply and Distribution, and Research and Development.

Alliance Growers has finalized its a new business partnership with WFS Pharmagreen Inc., to jointly develop and operate a 40,000-square foot facility to be the first of its kind in Western Canada to house a DNA Botany lab, extraction facility and Tissue Culture Plantlet Production facility to service the Cannabis market and agriculture market in general. The proposed Cannabis Botany Centre will grow Cannabis plantlets using proprietary tissue culture propagation, specifically the “Chibafreen Invitro Plant Production System”, which assures consistent composition and purity of each plantlet for the growers.

Alliance Growers has entered into an exclusive agreement to acquire a late stage licensed producer applicant, Biotech Canna, to become a licensed producer under Health Canada’s access to cannabis for medical purposes regulations (“ACMPR”) in Quebec.  Alliance Growers will supply financing and resources to build out the medical marijuana facility in preparation for the inspection required to obtain a growing license. Once Health Canada is satisfied with a successful crop, Alliance Growers will be granted its distribution license.

This acquisition allows the company an opportunity to become a licensed producer in the province of Quebec and gain an in-road to provide tissue culture plantlets to all licensed producers in Quebec.

Further, Alliance Growers has been negotiating to obtain other exclusive Canadian distribution agreements for certain proprietary products for support of the Cannabis growing industry in addition to possible partnerships with Licensed Producer Applicants at various stages in the Health Canada License process.
