MMJ控股集团向电子烟制造商投资250万美元

据当地5月20日报道,MMJ集团控股有限公司 (ASX:MMJ)已投资250万加元,持有Volero Brands Inc的7.3%股权,该公司位于加拿大,拥有并生产Flyte品牌的电子烟烟杆和烟弹。

Volero正在建设一个最先进的提取和生产设施,将生产雾化器、浓缩物和局部解决方案。

该工厂预计将于2019年第三季度完工,其设计目标是每年产生超过1亿加元的收入。

MMJ的250万加元投资是Volero 500万加元种子基金的一部分。

该投资包括500万股和250万份认股权证,可在三年内以0.65加元的价格行使。

Volero的目标是利用加拿大联邦政府于2019年10月批准的浓缩物和蒸发器合法化。

在这种情况下,Flyte可能成为该市场的主要参与者,已经建立了一个品牌和有吸引力的价格点。

“Volero为MMJ提供机会投资潜在有利可图的浓缩物和蒸发器部分,预计将于2019年10月合法化。”该投资再次证明MMJ有能力获得私人大麻业务的投资,这些业务距离公众很短清单。”

MMJ由MMJ提出的投资组合经理Embark Ventures Inc向Volero介绍。

通过Embark Ventures,MMJ能够获得与最初提议的条款相比更优越的条款。

Wall补充道:“我们很高兴我们能够与Embark Ventures合作,找到一个适用于MMJ首次投资的两个团队的结构”。

在预计2019年5月31日之前的Volero投资结算后,MMJ将拥有2600万美元的现金储备。

MMJ Group Holdings Ltd (ASX:MMJ) has invested C$2.5 million for a 7.3% shareholding in Volero Brands Inc, a private company based in Canada which owns and manufactures the Flyte brand of vape pens and cartridges.

Volero is building a state-of-the-art extraction and production facility that will produce vaporisers, concentrates and topical solutions.

The facility is expected to be completed in Q3 2019 and will be designed to generate a revenue of more than C$100 million per annum.

MMJ’s C$2.5 million investment is part of Volero’s C$5 million seed funding round.

The investment consists of 5 million shares and 2.5 million warrants exercisable at C$0.65 within three years.

Volero is aiming to capitalise on the pending legalisation by the Canadian Federal Government of concentrates and vaporisers in October 2019.

In this event, Flyte could become a major player in that market having already established a brand and an attractive price point.

“Volero provides the opportunity for MMJ to invest in the potentially lucrative segment of concentrates and vaporisers which are expected to be legalised in October 2019. “The investment again demonstrates MMJ’s capacity to secure investments in private cannabis businesses which are on a short path to public listing.”

– MMJ chairman Peter Wall

MMJ was introduced to Volero by Embark Ventures Inc which is MMJ’s proposed manager of its investment portfolio.

Through Embark Ventures, MMJ’s was able to secure significantly superior terms to those originally proposed.

Wall added: “We are delighted that we could work together with Embark Ventures to find a structure that works for both groups on the first investment originated for MMJ”.

Following settlement of the Volero investment which is expected before May 31 2019, MMJ will have cash reserves of $26 million.
