SOL Global Investments Corp.’s (CSE: SOL) (OTCPK: SOLCF) CannCure Investments Inc. will be going public through a reverse merger with Goldstream Minerals Inc. (NEX: GSX.H). The companies entered into a letter of intent dated January 8, 2020, outlining the proposed terms and conditions. Goldstream will buy a 100% interest in CannCure and then do a reverse takeover by the shareholders of CannCure. The deal is expected to close on or near March 31, 2020.
CannCure will be called “Bluma Wellness Inc.” with operations in Florida via One Plant Florida which is also known as 3 Boys Farm and in California with premium flower cultivator Northern Emeralds. The company said that the LOI was negotiated at arm’s length.
“Bluma will continue to execute on its plan to cultivate and deliver to patients and consumers the highest quality cannabis flower and flower derived products in the coveted Florida marketplace via One Plant Florida, and in California with premium flower producer Northern Emeralds. Bluma will also remain laser-focused on the responsible scale-up of its operations in both Florida and California with a continued focus on its proprietary home delivery model paired with strategically located flagship stores (that will also serve as delivery hubs) and efficient and data-driven premium flower cultivation”, said SOL Global CEO Brady Cobb.
Cobb, who is currently the CEO of SOL Global, will move over to become the CEO and Chairman of Bluma Wellness. SOL Global also stated that it will be the largest shareholder of Bluma. Former CannCure shareholders will become Bluma Shareholders.
“It has been an honor to lead one of the most dynamic and forward-thinking cannabis investment companies, and it’s has been my distinct privilege to work alongside our dedicated team as we assembled an amazing portfolio of cannabis, CBD and Esports investments” continued Brady Cobb. “My strengths have always been on the operations side, and I’m thrilled at the prospect of being able to focus exclusively on scaling up our operations in Florida and California and delivering value to our shareholders.”
Goldstream is listed on the NEX board of the TSX Venture Exchange, the company plans to delist the Goldstream shares from the NEX and then move to the Canadian Stock Exchange. SOL Global will stay at the CSE and the company said that it will not change its business to “that of a life sciences issuer operating as a multi-state cannabis operator in the United States.”
