Listing Pitt Meadows For Sale
The Company previously announced its intention to utilize an asset-light model to focus on the premium craft cannabis Canadian recreational market. The Company continues its effort to secure the funding necessary to fully execute on this business plan. Given Pitt Meadows no longer fits within the Company’s new business plan, a listing agreement has been executed with B.C. Farm & Ranch Realty Corp. to sell the Pitt Meadows facility. Proceeds from the sale are expected to be used to repay debt and outstanding accounts payables, as well as for working capital purposes to support the asset-light model.
