LP ownership showdown comes to an end

Village Farms International (NASDAQ:VFF,TSX:VFF) confirmed that Emerald Health Therapeutics (TSXV:EMH,OTCQX:EMHTF) shareholders have decided to allow Emerald to sell its stake in Pure Sunfarms, a licensed producer (LP) of cannabis.

On Thursday (October 29), both publicly traded companies announced the decision. Emerald CEO Riaz Bandali thanked investors for the decision as the company undergoes a rebalancing period. According to Emerald, a 98.65 percent majority of shareholders approved the transaction.

While the two companies originally joined forces to launch and oversee Pure Sunfarms, conflict ensued between Village Farms and Emerald as the two first disputed a wholesale agreement stipulation.

While the issue was later solved, contention over Emerald’s majority ownership stake in Pure Sunfarms remained in the spotlight.

In September, the two companies finally came together to settle the ownership dispute, and it was agreed Village Farms would acquire the 41.3 percent stake in Pure Sunfarms owned by Emerald.

“Under BellRock management, the platform is poised for exponential growth, through both M&A and organic R&D, and is purposely built to cater to all of the industry’s fastest growing segments,” Andrew Schweibold, chairman of BellRock, said in a statement.

In terms of management, Dixie CEO Chuck Smith will retain the top position. “Our mission is to build the first national cannabis house of brands,” he said.
