Today's podcast overview/transcript:
Good afternoon and welcome to another Investorideas.com potcast ; looking at cannabis news, stocks to watch as well as insights from thought leaders and experts. Today's podcast features news from Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX : WEED and NYSE: CGC), Aurora Cannabis Inc. (TSX: ACB and OTCQB: ACBFF) , Liberty Leaf Holdings Ltd. ( CSE: LIB and OTCQB as LIBFF), Valens GroWorks Corp. (CSE: VGW ) and new upcoming cannabis listing this week, Livewell Canada Inc.
But first today, the Government of Canada welcomed the final vote on Bill C-45, the Cannabis Act, in the Senate as an important step in the process of legalizing and strictly regulating cannabis in Canada. The Act is currently awaiting Royal Assent.
Two years ago, the Government of Canada launched the Task Force on Cannabis Legalization and Regulation. Following extensive consultation with Canadians, provincial and territorial governments and Indigenous communities, the Task Force presented recommendations, which have served as the foundation for the Government's legislative work. In April 2017, the Government introduced Bill C-45 with the goals of keeping cannabis out of the hands of youth and keeping profits out of the hands of criminals and organized crime.
The Ministers of Justice, Health, and Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness also confirmed that the date of coming into force of the Cannabis Act will be announced shortly.
Once the Act comes into force, adults who are 18 or 19 years of age and older (depending on the province or territory) will be able to legally purchase, grow and use a limited quantity of cannabis. Until that time, cannabis remains illegal in Canada, unless authorized for medical or scientific purposes.
Canopy Growth announced today the closing of its previously announced offering of C$500 million aggregate principal amount of its 4.25% convertible senior notes due 2023.
The initial conversion rate for the notes is 20.7577 common shares per C$1,000 principal amount of the notes, equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately C$48.18 per share. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of the notes for supporting expansion initiatives and general corporate purposes, including working capital requirements.
Aurora Cannabis Inc. announced today that it intends to distribute units consisting of shares and warrants of its subsidiary, Australis Capital Inc., to shareholders of the Company by way of a return of capital.
The spin-out of Australis will happen in the form of a distribution of units in Australis Capital to resident holders of Aurora shares. Non-resident holders will receive cash instead of units pursuant to the spin-out, priced at $0.25 per share.
Liberty Leaf Holdings Ltd. announced that the Company has participated in Blox Labs Inc. () recently closed non-brokered private placement financing for gross proceeds of $1,111,650. The Company's total participation was for $50,000 comprising a subscription for 666,667 common shares at $0.075 per share.
"Blox is a tech development company focused on creating best-in-class software solutions driven by emerging trends in blockchain, smart contracts and decentralized applications. The Blox team is helping customers with solutions for business problems from proofs of concept through execution," says Will Rascan, President and CEO of Liberty Leaf Holdings Ltd. "Working with the BLOX team is yet another link in our vision of vertical integration, uniting all elements of the legal cannabis market - from cultivation, to processing, distribution and selling a variety of cannabis products."
Valens GroWorks Corp., a multi-licensed, vertically integrated provider of cannabis products and services utilizing proprietary extraction processes, provided an update on subsidiary Valens Farms' state-of-the-art, purpose-built 400,000 sq ft, expandable (to 800,000 sq ft) cannabis cultivation and production facility, currently under development.
Valens Farms is a $75,000,000 joint venture development of prime acreage with a purpose-built, state-of-the-art, European GMP-certified cultivation center within the municipality of the City of Armstrong.
- Phase 1 buildout to 400,000 sq ft (permitted for up to 800,000 sq ft);
- Zero cash outlay for Valens, with Kosha contributing 100% of land, building and equipment costs;
- All hard assets will be split 50/50 between Kosha and Valens, thereby providing $37.5 million of net assets to Valens' balance sheet with no cash outlay or liability incurred;
- Valens' current Dealers License and GMP-certified facility in Kelowna is leveraged through Valens Farms' production, enhancing opportunities to export cannabis products internationally;
- Initial crop planting at joint venture facility is expected in Q4 2018, with Valens and Kosha to split profits on a 50/50 basis following cost recovery by Kosha;
- Valens Farms is expecting Phase 1 production of up to 56,000 kg per year of premium monocrop cannabis, primarily for extraction purposes. Monocropping minimizes grow time, allows greater crop turnover, and is expected to enhance profit margins;
- Subsidiary Valens Agritech will extract cannabis all produced at Valens Farms for further processing into higher-margin Valens-branded products for medical, as well as the expected recreational cannabis markets in Canada and internationally.
