VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 28, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FinCanna Capital Corp. (“FinCanna”) (CSE:CALI) FinCanna is pleased to announce that the Company’s common shares will commence trading on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE”) under the trading symbol “CALI” at the opening of the market tomorrow, December 29, 2017.
FinCanna is supporting the greater medical use of cannabis while benefitting from the growth in the market by investing in top-tier licensed medical cannabis companies in California. In exchange for financing, FinCanna will receive royalties from these licensed medical cannabis and related operations.
To date, FinCanna has completed approximately $14M CDN in financing to support its flagship investment in Cultivation Technologies (“CTI”). Based in Irvine, California, CTI is developing a very significant, state-of-the-art medical cannabis project and has already secured permits to construct a fully-entitled, 111,500 sf. permitted medical cannabis facility on a six-acre property in Coachella, Southern California.
Andriyko Herchak, CEO & Director, states, “Our public listing is a very significant milestone for FinCanna and its shareholders. There is an enormous opportunity to leverage the evolving regulatory landscape in the largest licensed medical cannabis market in North America, while supporting an industry that requires our strategic capital for growth initiatives.
FinCanna is initially focused on California since it is the sixth largest economy in the world and the largest medical cannabis market in North America. Analysts estimate the State’s legal cannabis industry will grow at a 21.1% CAGR to $6.5 billion by 2020, and generate upwards of $1 billion in tax revenue.
New laws that come into effect in January 2018 are expected to significantly change existing supply and demand dynamics.
