Schwazze, Formerly Operating as Medicine Man Technologies, Inc., Provides Update on Acquisition Strategy
DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 30, 2020--
Schwazze, formerly operating as Medicine Man Technologies Inc. (OTCQX: SHWZ) (“Schwazze ” or “the Company”), a leading vertically-integrated Colorado cannabis company, today provided an update on its acquisition strategy.
The Company announced the termination of previously named term sheet with MedPharm Holdings, a cannabis research and development operator, which expired today, September 30, 2020. As noted earlier this year, the Company had moved forward on numerous term sheets with Colorado cannabis operators but had completed limited due diligence at that time. After the rigorous review and vetting process of MedPharm, the Company was unable to reach a mutually beneficial agreement to acquire MedPharm.
Justin Dye, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Schwazze shared, “The decision to terminate the binding term sheet with MedPharm is the right step forward for Schwazze. We are committed to creating shareholder value and generating compelling investment returns and believe that by staying true to our core business strategy of building a vertically integrated platform, we will do just that. Our focus remains unchanged, as our intention is to bring together profitable cannabis operators while growing organically to create a robust, differentiated and most admired cannabis company.”
Schwazze reiterated its commitment to establishing a leading vertically integrated cannabis platform. To accomplish this, the Company has acquired Mesa Organics, a dispensary chain with four locations in Southern Colorado, Purplebee’s a leading extraction and manufacturing business and remains on track to acquire the 14 Colorado locations of Star Buds which includes 13 retail locations and a cultivation facility. The Company will continue to make decisions that uniquely position Schwazze to provide the most trusted products and experiences for consumers and the best value for shareholders. The Company remains in negotiations with the announced acquisitions Roots Rx and Canyon Cultivation.
