Alliance Growers Corp. (CSE: ACG.CN) (“Alliance Growers” or the “Company”) announces that the Company has executed on the term sheet for a financing commitment offered by a U.S. based private equity firm for a $5 Million equity facility in a series of private placements with an option to go to $10 million. This arrangement was previously referenced in a news release on February 14, 2017.
The purpose of the Equity Facility is to provide the Company with financial flexibility and control over the financial requirements for its many exciting and integrated projects, providing access to capital as deemed necessary by the Company.
In the past two years, this U.S. based private equity firm has offered and signed definitive agreements with other strong companies in the cannabis sector. The firm approached Alliance with a similar arrangement based on their belief in the Alliance Growers’ ‘Four Pillars’ business strategy. Incredible opportunity exists in the cannabis and cannabis-related sectors and there are few teams in the industry that can fully avail themselves of all that opportunity without adequate funding. The industry is rapidly changing and evolving and companies need to position themselves for where the industry is going, like Alliance has done. Part of that positioning for Alliance consists of its strategy to add value to every Licensed Producer individually, like Canwe and for the entire industry as a whole, and to quickly evolve to utility-like levels of reliability, consistency of product or experience, and stringent high standards of quality control.
“We are very excited to have received the strong vote of confidence from this notable financial equity firm. The fact that they share our view of where the cannabis market is going is a significant endorsement of Alliance Growers longer term business strategy. This offer of financing will provide the Company with the financial flexibility to ensure that it can execute on its business plan. We look forward to updating investors on our progress, ” said Dennis Petke, Alliance Growers’ President and CEO.
