Cannabis Wheaton Announces Closing of Inner Spirit Holdings Ltd. Transaction

February 7, 2018

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cannabis Wheaton Income Corp. (d/b/a Wheaton Income) (TSXV:CBW) ("Wheaton Income" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced transaction (the “Transaction”) with Inner Spirit Holdings Ltd. (“Inner Spirit”).

 

Inner Spirit is the parent company of Spirit Leaf Inc., which aims to be a market leader in the franchising of retail cannabis dispensaries in jurisdictions in Canada where the private distribution of recreational cannabis is permitted. Inner Spirit has currently executed over 100 franchise agreements in Canada for proposed retail locations which strongly positions the specialty retailer and franchisor in preparation for recreational cannabis legalization in July 2018.

 

Under the terms of the Transaction, the Company acquired 15,000,000 common shares of Inner Spirit (“Inner Spirit Shares”) and pursuant to a strategic alliance agreement, was granted the exclusive right to supply up to 50 percent of Inner Spirit’s annual inventory requirements for any cannabis, cannabis-infused or cannabis-derived products to be sold at its retail dispensaries with a mutually agreeable profit-sharing arrangement relating to any such cannabis product sales. In exchange for the Inner Spirit Shares, the Company provided Inner Spirit with a closing cash payment of $350,000 and issued to Inner Spirit 674,418 common shares and 1,250,000 common share purchase warrants.   

 

Pursuant to the investment agreement entered into by the Company and Inner Spirit, the Company also exercised its pre-emptive right to acquire an additional 1,500,000 Inner Spirit Shares for $150,000 and as a result now holds approximately 15% of the total issued and outstanding common shares of Inner Spirit.

 

The Company would also like to congratulate Inner Spirit on the concurrent closing of the final tranche of its previously announced private placement for gross proceeds of approximately $4.5 million which Inner Spirit intends to use to build out its flagship corporate dispensary in Calgary, Alberta, develop its Spiritleaf brand, and support the rollout of its franchise partners once the private sale of recreational cannabis is permitted.
