​Acreage Pharms secures supply agreement with Alberta Gaming, Liquor & Cannabis Commission

Spotlight News  |

INVICTUS MD STRATEGIES CORP.  (GENE:CA)  (IVITF)is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned Alberta subsidiary, Acreage Pharms Ltd. ("Acreage Pharms"), has signed a Purchase Order ("PO") with Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis ("AGLC") to supply the province with a selection of premium cannabis products for the upcoming adult recreational market. The agreement includes an initial one-year term, with two one-year renewal options.

Invictus' Acreage Pharms Ltd. ("Acreage Pharms"), fully licensed under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations ("ACMPR"), is scaling up with new state-of-the-art purpose-built indoor facilities. Phases 1, 2 and 3 are expected to bring Acreage Pharm's gross cultivation space to 130,000 square feet by January 2019, followed by Phase 4 which will add an additional 90,000 square feet, for a total production capacity of 220,000 square feet.

To complement Acreage Pharms' portfolio of award-winning strains, Invictus has partnered with world-leading Authentic Brands Group ("ABG") in New York to launch a line of distinct lifestyle inspired cannabis brands that feature its high-quality products for patients and adult recreational users. Products will include dried flowers, oils and concentrates, and consumables as regulations permit. The Company expects to launch one medical brand and four recreational brands in the coming weeks.

"On October 17, 2018, retailers across Alberta and the province's only legal online store, albertacannabis.org, will have high-quality, locally grown cannabis products to offer consumers," said Dan Kriznic, Chairman and CEO of Invictus. "This agreement is great news for the province of Alberta. Acreage did not have its sales license when the initial application was submitted to AGLC and was therefore excluded from the initial AGLC announcement of approved licensed producers (LP). The provinces, including Ontario, have the ability to approve supply agreements on an ad-hoc basis following the initial agreements with LP's. We continue to press on towards multiple supply agreements across Canada with our initial main focus to be our home province of Alberta."

The PO with AGLC is the Company's second provincial supply agreement to service the adult-use market and falls in-line with Invictus' ambitious five-pillar distribution strategy that includes medical, adult-use, international, LP to LP and retail stores. To date, the Company has entered into supply agreements with British Columbia and Alberta for recreational product and a Letter of Intent ("LOI") with Germany for medical product, while awaiting responses to Expressions of Interest ("EOI") submitted to additional provinces including Ontario.
