BELLEVUE, Wash., Jan. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- – On January 8, 2019, Novo Integrated Sciences, Inc. (OTCQB:NVOS) (the “Company” or “Novo Integrated Sciences”) and 2478659 Ontario Ltd., an Ontario corporation (“247), signed an Agreement of Transfer and Assignment (the JV Assignment”), pursuant to which Novo Integrated Sciences assumes all rights and obligations outlined within a Joint Venture Agreement (“JV”), executed January 7, 2019, between 247 and Kainai Cooperative, a cooperative organized under the laws of Alberta, Canada (“KA”).
The JV provides for both farming and greenhouse agricultural development, to include supporting infrastructure, of over 275,000 acres of Canadian prairie land for a minimum term of fifty years. The primary cash crop to be harvested is hemp and medical cannabis. In consideration for the JV Assignment, upon expiration of a 20-day diligence period or the Company waiving such period, 247 will be issued 12,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock pursuant to an exemption from registration as set forth in Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Assignment Stock”). Additionally, the Assignment Stock issued will be subject to a one-year lock up period from date of issuance.
Mr. Robert Mattacchione, Novo Integrated Sciences’ CEO and Board Chairman, states, “With the hemp and medicinal cannabis sectors experiencing exponential growth worldwide, we are very excited to commence our long-term relationship with the Kainai Cooperative while also fulfilling a primary objective to develop business units outside of our core health science platforms. The interface between Novo Integrated Sciences, CannaPiece Group and KA, directly established through the JV, allows the Company to leverage strength through partnership creating a clear and concise concept-to-reality pathway. This long-term partnership provides the Company with a seamless migration into a broad-spectrum of sciences through medicinal agriculture research and product enhancement, application of renewable energy resources and rural development initiatives. Additionally, community partnerships such as this ensure economic stimulus to the rural participants and surrounding populations. With direct control of the grow, extraction and manufacturing processes for hemp and medical cannabis products combined with access to our expanding patient base, as well as a rapidly growing worldwide patient community, Novo Integrated Sciences and its holdings, is well-positioned to provide high-quality, low-cost medical cannabidiol products.”
