Calgary, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – November 12, 2020) – RMMI Corp. (CSE: RMMI) (“RMMI” or the “Company“), a licensed producer and processor under the Cannabis Act (Canada), is pleased to provide a business update with respect to the 2020 harvest of premium hemp flower and biomass in connection with the previously announced strategic alliance and hemp purchase agreement with SynerGenetics Biosciences Inc. (“SG”), a leading plant genetics technology company focused on the development of novel hemp strains with high-CBD content. In addition, the Company announces that it intends to complete a private placement of 10,000,000 common shares (“Common Shares“) in the capital of the Company at an issuance price of $0.20 per share, raising gross proceeds of CDN$2,000,000 (the “Offering“). The Company intends to use the net proceeds to complete the buildout of the expansion area in the Company’s 23,400 square foot extraction and processing facility, to purchase additional high capacity extraction and processing equipment and for general corporate and working capital purposes.
“Following the strategic alliance with SynerGenetics Bioscience (“SG“), we are working together to continue to reach milestones in our collective mission to become the premiere low-cost, high-CBD extraction platform in the Canadian market,” said Peter Cheung, Interim CEO and CFO. “This financing will allow us to complete an expansion of the licenced area in our Brooks-based facility and commercialize our CBD extraction and processing operations at scale.”
RMMI is working closely with SG to develop and advance the hemp processing and CBD extraction business. The Company is pleased to provide the following Business Update highlights since announcing the strategic alliance and hemp purchase agreement with SG:
SG’s British Columbia and Ontario farming partners and in the midst of harvesting SG’s proprietary high-CBD hemp flower and biomass, which is now in various stages of the harvesting and drying process (the “SG Hemp“).
The SG Hemp has received certificates of analysis (“COAs“) with total CBD content of up to 15%.
The yield of the SG Hemp is expected to be between 500,000 lbs and 1,000,000 lbs of high-CBD premium flower and de-fibered biomass for the 2020 harvest.
RMMI expects SG to begin delivery of the SG Hemp beginning in approximately 14 days and it will then be available for RMMI to process and sell as either hemp biomass or CBD concentrates.
The Company is in active discussion with interested parties on the sale of hemp flower / biomass as well as CBD concentrates.
RMMI continues with finalizing the renovations of the Health Canada licensed Newell facility to convert it into a large-scale hemp processing operation.
The equipment required to operationalize the hemp processing facility has either been delivered on site or is ordered for delivery.
