DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / August 8, 2019 / International Cannabrands Inc. (CSE:JUJU)(OTC:GEATF) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has signed a letter of intent (“LOI”) with Albert Einstone’s LLC (“AE”), a fully-licensed, vertically integrated California cultivation, distribution and manufacturing company with state-of-the-art indoor warehouses in downtown Los Angeles.
Steve Gormley, CEO shared: “My team and I are extremely pleased to be partnering with AE and we’re extraordinarily impressed with their pristine facility and highly sophisticated operation. This extension of our manufacturing capabilities and brand distribution footprint should be a significant contributor to our earnings going forward.”
In addition to white-labeling, AE also manufactures and distributes its own branded cannabis products including El Blunto; a line of prerolls and related products. They are also looking to launch an exciting entry into the CBD beverage category and are currently approaching $1M in yearly revenue with more products in the pipeline.
The LOI provides that the Company will acquire 50.5% of AE and the parties will work to sign a definitive agreement within 75 days. The Company has the exclusive right to deal with AE until the LOI is terminated. Closing is conditional upon completion of due diligence and the Company securing the necessary financing to close the transaction. The investment into AE will go directly towards expanding capacity to further fuel growth.
The Company continues to execute against its strategy of acquiring select, highly profitable value chain investments to facilitate brand growth, enhance margins and bolster cash flow. The Company believes that processing and manufacturing – sourced or in-house – are the bedrock of differentiation and brand quality, and that the market demands consistent products and reliable supply. Having access to a multi-licensed facility in the heart of Los Angeles will be an invaluable asset for sourcing, manufacturing, distribution for current assets JuJu Royal and La Vide Verde, as well as any future brands the Company acquires.
