VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Icanic Brands Company, Inc. (CSE: ICAN, OTCQB: ICNAF) (“Icanic Brands” or the “Company”), a multi-state brand operator of premium cannabis brands in California and Nevada, is pleased to announce that the Company has sold its interest in a Sacramento, CA Cultivation facility (the “Sale”) to Crowco Management LLC (“Crowco”), a California based limited liability Company, for USD $2,000,000.
The Company held management and purchase rights with respect to a 180 light indoor cannabis cultivation facility (the “Cultivation Facility”) which has been in operation since late 2019.
Crowco Management LLC is led by an expert group of operators and growers with a background in scientific growing procedures.
Terms of the Sale
Pursuant to a definite Sale and Assignment Agreement (the “Agreement”) and in consideration for USD$2,000,000.00, Icanic Brands through its wholly owned subsidiary has sold its interest and rights in the Sacramento, California based Cultivation Facility. In addition to the monetary consideration, Icanic Brands shall receive discounted purchase rights to supply its current California based infused pre-roll products.
“Our ability to unlock value by selling our interest in our Sacramento cultivation facility while still maintaining similar cost of raw inputs through our below market contractual off take agreement was a big win for Icanic,” said Brandon Kou, CEO of Icanic Brands. “Our biggest priority was to maintain the integrity of our gross margins and we were able to accomplish that goal by entering into an off-take agreement that closely mirrors our prior internal cost of cannabis inputs. This transaction also adds a significant non-dilutive cash infusion that we can use to strategically grow our business as the California market continues to evolve.”
Icanic Brands also announces that management of the Company has increased its budget related to its investor relations campaigns in an effort to continue the Company’s marketing and awareness campaigns using alternative methods as a result of travel restrictions and limited person-to-person contact due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
In connection with this, the Company is pleased to announce the launch of an investor marketing campaign and has engaged TD Media LLC (“TD Media”) to provide investor relations and digital advertising services to the Company. Services to be provided by TD Media include copywriting and design fees and digital advertising. The engagement of TD Media will commence on September 28, 2021 for a fee of US$250,000 as part of the increased budget in connection with the campaign. Neither TD Media nor any of its principals currently own any interest, directly or indirectly, in the Company.
