​Invictus Launching Recreational Brands

Spotlight News  |

Invictus MD Strategies Corp.  (GENE:CA) (IVITF) ()today announced the introduction of four lifestyle-inspired cannabis brands for recreational users to become available across Invictus' robust distribution network under the omnichannel Terra World. As consumers look to navigate the new world of recreational cannabis, Invictus is curating a selection of brands that mirror the varied lifestyles of the recreational user.

Developed in partnership with Authentic Brands Group ("ABG"), Invictus brings to market four new recreational cannabis brands including Dukes, Zooey, Sterling & Hunt, and Sinister, each of which addresses a specific target audience and his or her lifestyle. Dukes is positioned to bring together friends and is framed around the idea of living in the moment. Zooey is designed with women in mind and addresses each user's social and physical well-being. Sterling & Hunt is aimed at the user who is a true connoisseur in all aspects of his or her life. Sinister is a high THC brand for the experienced user. Dukes and Zooey include a balanced THC/CBD product and Sterling & Hunt features a medium THC product.

ABG owns, manages, and builds the long-term value of a global portfolio of Lifestyle, Celebrity and Entertainment brands out of their headquarters in New York City. ABG's brands have a retail footprint that spans the luxury, specialty, department store, mid-tier, and e-commerce channels and 4,381 branded freestanding stores and shop-in-shops worldwide.

In order to capture a growing and dynamic market, Invictus is employing a five-pillar distribution channel strategy that includes medical, recreational, international, Licensed Producer to Licensed Producer, and retail stores. Invictus' most recent announcement of a supply agreement with Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission as well as the Letter of Intent with GTEC exemplifies this approach by adding new distribution and retail opportunities. GTEC expects to have a minimum of 15 Cannabis Cowboy retail stores open by October 17, 2018, in Alberta, as well as 1 location in Saskatchewan, complemented by an e-commerce platform that will serve the entire Province.

Ahead of the recreational market opening on October 17th, Invictus will roll out a robust brand campaign in compliance with Health Canada's guidelines and launch an all-new website that will provide consumers with important product education and information, brand highlights, and the vision behind Invictus.
