The Company has been working diligently on its 2019 and 2020 strategic plan. The focus has been re-defined to consider the four areas below, although the Company will opportunistically pursue projects in the space that provide us with excess levels of return with limited risk. It is important to note that management has extensive experience in all aspects of seed to sale allowing us to pursue opportunities anywhere along the value chain.
The Company is positioning itself to become a Canadian leader in the production of oil derived from cannabis or hemp and globally distribute this oil both in bulk and through unique products it develops.
The ability to extract oil from the biomass that is cultivated is a key component of the Company’s value and strategic direction.
The Company believes it is in a prime position to take advantage of global distribution channels by having employees or relationships globally to sell various types of extracted oil and its own branded products.
The Company has incorporated MYM International Brands Inc. (“Unique Brands”) to distribute cannabinoid derived products on a global basis. These include, but are not limited to, food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics.
The Company is currently evaluating opportunities to distribute its Unique Brands in Europe, Asia Pacific, Mexico, Colombia and the United States and is committed to only conducting business in jurisdictions where it is legal. The Company will only operate in foreign jurisdictions with the prior approval of the relevant regulatory bodies for such operations.
Recently, the Company was successful in arranging financing in the form of both debt and equity to support its 2019 and 2020 strategic plan.
Paul Cheetham (COO) is no longer with the Company. The Company thanks Mr. Cheetham for his support and wishes him well in his future endeavours.
Management has recently taken measures to lower expenditures through various efforts including staff reductions in non-core activities.
