LYF Edibles Targeting Early 2020 to Manufacture Cannabis Products, Announces $6,000,000 Capital Raise
LYF FOOD TECHNOLOGIES INC. (“LYF” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that Health Canada has completed its preliminary high-level review of the Company’s Standard Processor License application. The Company will submit its evidence package to demonstrate that the Company’s site meets all the requirements of the Cannabis Act and applicable regulations to Health Canada in the coming weeks.
“Our team has worked tirelessly over the last 2 years to bring this dream to reality, and can now confidently say we are in the last steps of the Health Canada licensing process. Our facility will be completed in approximately 2 weeks and then our regulatory partners at CCI Deloitte will assist in the submission of our site evidence package to Health Canada. We are excited at the prospect of being one of the first licensed edibles companies in Canada, and a first mover in Cannabis 2.0 consumer products,” said Matthew Amado, President and co-founder of LYF.
LYF will focus on producing sublingual nutraceuticals, functional foods, and traditional edibles in their wholly-owned, purpose-built facility in Kelowna, BC, capable of manufacturing over $250,000,000 worth of value-added cannabis products per year once licensed and fully operational.
To fund the final steps of the Company’s strategic plan, LYF is currently looking to raise up to $6,000,000 via a convertible note offering (the “Offering”). Proceeds will be used to order manufacturing and production equipment, business development, hiring of necessary staff, marketing, sales and for general corporate purposes. The Offering will consist of Secured Convertible Debentures, with each note earning 8% interest and exercisable at $0.25 per share for a period of three (3) years. The investment round is open to accredited investors, with a $10,000.00 minimum investment.
The Offering is expected to close on or about December 20, 2019, subject to customary closing conditions and LYF having the right to extend the closing of the Offering at its sole discretion. This announcement is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy the convertible notes or the common shares of LYF into which the notes are convertible and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful.
The convertible notes and any common shares of LYF issuable upon conversion of the notes have not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or any state securities laws, or qualified for distribution by prospectus in Canada, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements, or sold in Canada absent an exemption from the prospectus requirements of Canadian securities laws.
