August 29, 2019 -– Vancouver, BC – Alliance Growers Corp. (CSE: ACG; FWB:1LA; OTCQB: ALGWF) (“Alliance Growers” or “the Company) (“Alliance” or the “Company”) On August 14, 2019 the Company announced Warrant Exercise Incentive Program (the “Program”) designed to encourage the early exercise of the Company’s outstanding common share purchase warrants (“Warrants”). The Program is the first step in a series of capital fundraising initiatives to allow the Company to execute on its projects. Open this link for an overview of Alliance Growers projects and financing initiatives http://tiny.cc/acg-ready-to-launch.
The Program was originally open for a 13 day period (the “Early Exercise Period”) beginning on August 17, 2019 and ending on August 30, 2019 and at the request of certain warrant holders, the deadline has been extended to September 13, 2019
Commenting on the Warrant Incentive Program, President and CEO of Alliance Growers stated, “This Program is the first step to launch the Company’s financing initiatives. We are pleased with the responses to date. We are highly confident that once we receive a significant amount of warrants being exercised, we will see a steady improvement in our stock price over the coming weeks. This in turn will trigger the investment commitment by the New York Family Office. The proceeds will be expended to assist in the closing and initial financing of our HOCL exclusive distributorship in Canada and our East Africa Medical Cannabis Operation. These two projects address the cannabis investors desire to invest in cannabis companies with near-term revenues. Once these two projects are in place and the stock price is at an appropriate level, we will commence the $13,000,000 Open Shelf Short Form Prospectus Offering which is aimed at Institutions and Funds and will be available to private investors as well. We look forward to the continued support from our many loyal shareholders as we execute on our business plan in a very volatile cannabis market.
The Program includes warrants with exercise dates as follows:
