During June 2019, Budd Hutt entered into an agreement to acquire seven pre-licensed retail cannabis store locations in the Alberta market. The remaining three locations in Alberta have the appropriate regulatory approvals in place from AGLC and require leasehold improvements and branding prior to undergoing the final inspection approval process to receive a retail license from AGLC.

Quinsam Capital Corporation (CSE: QCA) increased its investment to $2.2M, from its initial investment of $1.1M, as part of a loan arrangement with Budd Hutt. Budd Hutt expects to fund inventory and staffing requirements to open the four stores after the grant of the four store licenses. Budd Hutt and City View are currently investigating all strategic alternatives to fund Budd Hutt including a joint venture, merger, additional financing, reverse take-over, or outright sale. The Company and Budd Hutt will report back to shareholders as opportunities materialize.
Roger Dent, CEO of Quinsam Capital, commented:
