Geyser Brands Announces TSX Conditional Approval of Solace Management Group Acquisition (CNW Group/Geyser Brands Inc.)

About Solace


As reported in previously disseminated news releases, Solace leverages its brands, intellectual property and proprietary formulations in the hemp and CBD markets by licensing distribution and production arrangements.

Solace’s brands and assets include among other things, the Apawthecary Pets line of products which are leading all-natural hemp-based pet treats with formulations for human grade, all-natural pet treats, salves and oral drops. Apawthecary Pets products are currently being sold in pet stores and veterinarian clinics across Canada, including Bosley’s, PetLand, Pharmasave, Buckerfields, Shoppers Drug Mart, Global Pet Foods and Pet Planet to name a few. Solace’s product portfolio currently comprises of 23 products and 57 SKU’s of both pet and consumer healthcare goods. All products are currently utilizing organic, unrefined, cold-pressed hemp seed oil extracts.

As part of the Solace’s continued growth, it has recently moved to a new 7,500 sq. ft. facility built to (GMP) Good Manufacturing Practices. The new facility is anticipated to increase Solace’s production capacity significantly in order to meet the growing demand and will allow the development of new products and formulations.

The Company’s CEO, Andreas Thatcher, stated, “The management team at Solace has an exemplary track record in building businesses in the health-related cannabis industry. This conditional approval brings us one step closer to our intended goal of extending these businesses into the regulated cannabis space, and into world markets. Geyser Brands will be proud to associate with and support the team that continues to lead the Cannabis industry through innovation and customer loyalty.”

Shareholder Approval

As previously announced, the Proposed Transaction is not an “arm’s length transaction” as such term is defined in the Exchange’s Policy 1.1 and therefore constitutes a “related party transaction” as such term is defined in Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”).

Although the Company is exempt under MI 61-101 in respect of minority shareholder approval and formal valuations, in accordance with the Exchange’s Policy 5.3, the Proposed Transaction constitutes a “reviewable transaction”, and, as the number of shares issuable to “Non-Arm’s Length” parties exceeds 10% of the number of common shares issued and outstanding in the capital of the Company, the Exchange requires the Company to seek approval of a simple majority of the Company’s shareholders, excluding certain insiders, including those Non-Arm’s Length parties. The Exchange has approved the Company’s proposal to obtain evidence of shareholder approval by way of written consents from the Company’s shareholders. The Company is in the process of obtaining written consents directly from the Company’s shareholders and will provide updates once a simple majority has been reached.
