ALLIANCE GROWERS / PHARMAGREEN CLOSES $10M FINANCING AGREEMENT
December 5, 2019 – Vancouver, BC – Alliance Growers Corp. (CSE: ACG; FWB:1LA; OTCQB: ALGWF) (“Alliance Growers” or “the Company), reports that Pharmagreen Biotech, Inc. (“Pharmagreen”), (OTC:PHBI), announced, “Pharmagreen Closes $10 Million Equity Purchase Agreement” – Press Release 12/04/2019.
Pharmagreen announced that the required documents for an Equity Purchase Agreement (the “Equity Agreement”) with Oscaleta Partners LLC (“Oscaleta”) have been executed, further to the news release dated November 12, 2019.
This Equity Agreement is one of several financing initiatives that enables Pharmagreen access to capital over the next 2 years to support its current growth plans; advancing the Pharmagreen Biotech Tissue Culture Facility as well as the Hemp Greenhouses that will be situated on the same 25-acre property in Deroche, Mission, known as the Cannabis Biotech Complex.
Alliance Recent Financing Initiatives
In addition to Pharmagreen’s financing initiatives, Alliance Growers reports it is in advanced discussions with 2 groups that are highly interested in funding revenue deals and would like to work with Alliance Growers for 3 to 5 years to help build the Company. They are not looking for one-off investments and they do not want to take equity in Alliance Growers until the company is at a much higher valuation, is well funded, cash flowing with consistency with growth potential. Their financing mechanism includes a series of convertible loans that will be converted after a few years at significantly higher prices agreed to by the investor and the company.
“Dennis Petke, President and CEO of Alliance Growers commented “The execution of Pharmagreen’s recent financing is huge for Alliance, as now further development of the Cannabis Biotech Complex will be underway. The timing of their financing comes right at the time when Alliance has identified non-dilutive financing options. This type of financing for Alliance whereby the investor(s) work with the company for several years to develop a strong cash flowing entity, is exactly what we have been looking for. Instead of issuing millions of shares at low/unpredictable stock prices, with multiple private placements, Alliance now has the ability to implement on its business plan by building out the revenue producing units without massive dilution. Once we get this program underway, Alliance will not require much by way of other capital, if any at all for the next few years. We expect 2020 to be a big turnaround year for Alliance as we develop our business model beyond Cannabis and beyond Canada.”
Pharmagreen Financing terms
The terms of the Equity Agreement will give Pharmagreen the right, but never the obligation, to sell to Oscaleta up to Ten Million Dollars’ worth of Pharmagreen’s registered common stock over an anticipated two-year period at times and in amounts that Pharmagreen deems appropriate.
Now that the Equity Agreement is fully executed, the company has started immediate work on the registration statement. The company plans to access the capital for its ongoing project development for state-of-the art greenhouse and tissue cultured starter plantlets production facility construction. Pharmagreen’s primary use of the facilities is to supply hemp farmers with its “CBD Dana” hemp strain that is a very high yielder of high CBD content biomass and flower tops, please visit our website; www.pharmagreen.ca
Peter Wojcik, President and CEO, stated, “Partnering with Oscaleta is significant for the company as we can be concerting on executing our business plan and growing the company, while Oscaleta funding agreements with their years of expertise and established network in the industry provides us with additional support in the financial market.”
Commenting on the investment, Stephen Hicks, Manager of Oscaleta, said, “As an institutional investor for more than 20 years, we partner with companies that meet very specific criteria – it boils down to ‘how revolutionary is this?’ We’re excited about the long-term potential.”
