Red White & Bloom Acquires Platinum Vape For $35 Million

Red White & Bloom Brands Inc. (RWB) (OTC: RWBYF) is buying a group of California-based companies operating under the name Platinum Vape for approximately $35 million. This is the first acquisition by RWB since going public and also marks its entry into California.

The company is paying $7 million in cash at the closing, another $13 million in cash within 120 days of closing, and a $15 million convertible note, only convertible after 12 months, payable on the third anniversary of closing. In addition to that, the selling security holders of Platinum Vape will be entitled to receive up to another $25 million on the first anniversary of closing, contingent on Platinum Vape achieving certain financial milestones.

George and Cody Sadler, Founders of Platinum Vape, said, “We at Platinum Vape are excited to have done such an amazing deal to integrate PV into the RWB family.  Cody and I have been building the business for nine years so far and feel that RWB is the best place to continue not only the growth of PV for us but for our family as well. We couldn’t be happier with our decision.”

Platinum Vape

Platinum Vape has a full product line of premium cannabis products sold at over 700 retailers throughout Michigan, California, and Oklahoma boasting an 84% rating (4.2/5) on WeedMaps.com.

Platinum was started 9 years ago by father and son duo, George and Cody Sadler. Based on the principles of quality, hard work, and customer service, they grew the business with no outside investors into one of the most successful and storied brands in the space today.

Brad Rogers, Chairman & CEO of RWB, said: “George and Cody, the founders and operators of Platinum Vape, are visionaries in the cannabis market and have done an incredible job in building the pre-eminent vape company in the United States through commitment to quality, education, and the communities they serve. One of the things that struck me is the balance they have achieved in running a profitable successful business, which will add tremendously to RWB’s top and bottom lines, while maintaining their commitment to supporting social issues, both financially and through awareness with the REACT program, they established.”
