SOL Global Investments Corp. (CSE: SOL) (OTCPK: SOLCF) portfolio company CannCure Investments has entered into a definitive business combination agreement with Goldstream Minerals Inc.  The deal was previously announced in January and the companies are planning a reverse takeover of Goldstream by CannCure.

According to the company statement, the resulting company will initially operate in the State of Florida via One Plant Florida (formerly 3 Boys Farm LLC) and in the event that its proposed acquisition of ECD Holdings Inc. (d/b/a as “Northern Emeralds”) is completed, will begin operations in the State of California. As the company previously announced, Brady Cobb will step down as CEO and a director of SOL Global to lead the new MSO effective upon the closing of the Proposed Transaction. Closing of the Proposed Transaction is expected to occur in late April 2020 or such other date as may be mutually agreed to by the parties.

Goldstream will de-list from the NEX board of the TSX Venture Exchange and the resulting issuer will apply to list its common shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE). The proposed deal cannot be completed while Goldstream is listed on the NEX board of the TSXV. Sol Global said that an application will be made to voluntarily delist its common shares from the NEX board of the TSXV and to list the common shares of the resulting company on the CSE.

Terms Of The Deal

The company said in the statement that the following terms were part of the deal:

  • the consolidation of Goldstream’s common shares on a 23.3053:1 basis, the issuance of post-Consolidation Goldstream common shares to holders of CannCure common shares on a 1:1 basis;
  • the continuance of Goldstream into the province of British Columbia;
  • the entering into of lock-up agreements by certain CannCure shareholders, officers and directors;
  • CannCure obtaining a US$15,000,000 construction loan from an arm’s length third party lender or completing an alternative financing to ensure sufficient funding for the MSO operations following closing;
  • the approvals of all regulatory bodies having jurisdiction in connection with the Proposed Transaction, including, without limitation, approval from the Florida Department of Health, Office of Medical Marijuana Use; and
  • other closing conditions customary to transactions of the nature of the Proposed Transaction.

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.”


In addition to the reverse takeover announcement, SOL Global also reported that Canadian firm Duff & Phelps completed a valuation of its portfolio of private and public investments and concluded that the value of the Investment Portfolio, as at November 30, 2019, was in a range between $165.2 and $182.4 million with a midpoint of $173.8 million.

The company said that it has 54,459,256 common shares issued and outstanding and the valuation implied an NAV per share of approximately $1.70. The stock was lately trading at 40 cents per share with a market cap of $19 million as per Yahoo! Finance.

SOL Global Investments Corp. (CSE: SOL) (OTCPK: SOLCF) delivered its second-quarter results in Canadian dollars with a net loss of $51.3 million loss and no revenues only a loss of $57 million versus last year’s loss of $17 million for the same time period. The second quarter of 2018 also experienced a net income of $179 million due to the gain on the sale of a subsidiary.

In the last six months, SOL Global has recorded a net loss of $94 million or $1.75 per share. The company noted that 78% of this loss is due to SOL Global’s investment in Verano Holdings Inc. “Early in 2019, Verano announced a merger agreement with the public company Harvest Health & Recreation Inc. As a result of this merger agreement, the price of the company’s investment in Verano is linked to the value of the underlying Harvest shares that the company will receive should the publicly announced merger close. As the value of the Harvest shares decreased significantly from April 1, 2019 to September 30, 2019, the company recorded an unrealized loss of $74.2 million on its Verano investment. The remaining loss is primarily attributed to changes in the Company’s other cannabis-related investments.”

“We are disappointed in the volatility of certain core portfolio holdings which had a significant negative impact on our NAV, however, we continue to stand by those investments and their long-term value creation,” said CEO Brady Cobb. “Our stock has had a larger decline than others but traditionally an investment holding company trades at a discount to operating companies. That, coupled with 1 or 2 of our core holdings having larger price declines than expected due to HSR delays has had the majority of impact on our NAV decline.”

Confusing Acquisition Plans

In addition to the big losses, SOL Global has shifted gears with its acquisitions causing investors to lose track of what exactly the company is planning to do. SOL Global stated that it still intends to complete a transaction for the sale of 3 Boys Farms, LLC within 2 years of the closing date of its acquisition. “In the event that a sale of 3 Boys Farms, LLC does not occur within the two-year timeframe, only then would the Company be required to compensate the former CannCure shareholders US$80 million.” SOL was going to sell 3 Boys to Verano, but when Verano said it was buying Harvest Health, it didn’t need a Florida property and so that agreement was terminated.

The company also recently terminated the plan to acquire MCP Wellness, which would have given the company a large presence in Michigan, which just began recreational sales on Dec. 2.

Video Gaming?

Adding to the confusion is the company’s investment in a video game business. Two of SOL Global’s non-cannabis investments, Torque Esports Corp. (TSX-V: GAME) of which the company presently owns 9% of its shares, and Frankly Inc.  (TSX-V: TLK) of which the company presently owns 13.8% of its shares, have agreed to merge with a third company, WinView, Inc. in a triple-merger. The combined entity will be called Engine Media Holdings, Inc. with the plan to form integrated news, gaming, and esports platform. WinView Executive Chairman Tom Rogers, best known for founding CNBC and then CEO of TIVO, will serve as Executive Chairman of the new entity.

If shareholders were wondering whether this should be looked upon as a way to diversify risk, SOL Global shot that down by adding, “There are no assurances that the proposed transaction will be completed or at all.”

More confusing is that SOL Global also filed an early warning report in connection with a disposition of common shares of Frankly Inc. and also stated that it sold 103,500 common shares of Torque Esports resulting in SOL Global becoming a beneficial holder of less than 10% of the shares receiving approximately $ 130,864.

Cobb added, “This deal, which was brought together by our investment team, illustrates our strength in recognizing value in individual assets but also the foresight to cohesively align and bring investments together in order to maximize shareholder value by looking outside of the box. The esports industry marketing size is set to surpass the $1billion dollar revenue mark in 2019 according to NewZoo at a time when streaming is taking over cable providers. I’m personally excited to see this investment play out and am proud of our investment team for finding the opportunity in both Torque and Frankly and bringing them to another level. ”

Heavenly Rx To NASDAQ

SOL Global owns 40.7% of Heavenly Rx Ltd. which has signed a memorandum of understanding with the NASDAQ exchange. Heavenly is supposed to a reverse takeover of Therapix Biosciences Ltd (NASDAQ: TRPX), a specialty clinical-stage pharmaceutical company with a portfolio of technologies and assets based on cannabinoid pharmaceuticals. However, SOL also made sure to note that there also no assurances this deal would come to completion.

In October the company said it was changing its name to Bluma Wellness, but so far the board hasn’t voted to approve the name change.

Shareholders are apparently comfortable with the losses as the stock moved higher by 3% to trade at roughly 34 cents.

The bear market for the cannabis industry is leading to the unwinding of deals that had great promise. Cannabis companies are no longer willing to write big checks with fingers crossed that the market will just continue to boom. Two of these deals were terminated after great fanfare.

Cresco Labs

Cresco Labs (CSE:CL) (OTCQX:CRLBF)  said it was ending its plan to acquire Florida-based VidaCann Ltd. which was originally announced on March 18, 2019. It was valued at $120 million when it was first announced.

“We recognize that responsibly allocating our shareholders’ capital is fundamental to long-term success. While it sometimes means making tough decisions, we are committed to executing on a superior capital agenda, responsibly accelerating the top and bottom-line, executing thoughtful and accretive M&A transactions, and generating efficiencies as we scale,” said Cresco Labs CEO and Co-founder Charlie Bachtell. “With the flexibility to continue to leverage non-dilutive funding options like sale-lease-back agreements, we are well-positioned to continue executing on our strategy to build the most important, enduring company in U.S. cannabis.”

In March, VidaCann was said to have plans to have 20 operating dispensaries by the end of 2019 and licenses for up to 30 in the state. It was to be Cresco’s entry into the lucrative market and another state to plant the Cresco Flag.

Separately, the company also announced the signing of a binding agreement for the sale-and-leaseback of two properties in Ohio and Michigan, for total additional funding of approximately $38 million.

Mr. Bachtell continued, “With these two announcements, we have effectively strengthened our balance sheet to the tune of nearly $158 million between new non-dilutive funding and the elimination of a significant near-term cash outlay earmarked for the Transaction. The team and operations at VidaCann are phenomenal, but with a focus on managing our cost of capital, and ensuring the most efficient and highest return on invested capital, the ability to deploy resources to other, existing, Cresco markets that are widely considered some of the top markets in the US, like Illinois, Pennsylvania, California and Nevada, has to take priority.  We believe it’s in the best interest of our shareholders to re-allocate resources to these existing higher return opportunities with a view to looking for a more capital efficient way to enter the Florida market over the longer term.”

Cresco Labs stock was up slightly by four cents to lately trade at $5.79, down from its 52-week high of $40.63.

SOL Global

SOL Global Investments Corp.’s (CSE: SOL) (OTCPK: SOLCF) said it decided against its deal with MCP Wellness to that was agreed to on April 23, 2019. SOL was to buy MCP Wellness for $35 million in cash and S$115 million in equity consideration in CannCure.

MCP is the Merida Capital Partners affiliate that owns the rights to own three Michigan cultivation licenses, a processing license, 9 licensed and operating dispensaries and 6 additional dispensary licenses, giving it the largest retail footprint in the state of Michigan.

According to the statement, both MCP and SOL Global said that “current market conditions do not support a transaction of this size, and both parties and their respective shareholders are better served focusing capital and resources on building out their respective businesses.” SOL Global said it will remain focused on the scale-up of its rapidly expanding Florida operations via One Plant Florida, and MCP said it will focus on opening additional dispensaries and launching a cultivation facility in Michigan.

While the acquisition is off, MCP Wellness may use Northern Emeralds (which SOL Global has proposed to buy)  to provide cultivation and processing standard operating procedures to MCP for a to be agreed upon royalty. The statement said that the $12.5 million advanced by SOL Global to MCP Wellness will be repaid in full over the next 12 months in monthly installments and 2 balloon payments at the 6 and 12 month time frames. In addition to that, CannCure, which is SOL Global’s portfolio company,  will have the option to acquire certain assets from MCP Wellness, convert any amounts due into stock in the Michigan operator, or complete the originally contemplated transaction on substantially similar terms.

 SOL Global Investments Corp. (CSE: SOL) (OTCPK: SOLCF) reported a loss of $43.5 million for the first fiscal quarter versus a loss of $2.9 million for the same period in 2018.  The loss came to 81 cents per share for the quarter. The company attributed the loss to a devaluation of cannabis stocks totaling $33.5 million and expenses, with total expenses coming to $10.9 million for the quarter.

The main culprit was Sol Global’s investment in Verano Holdings, which is set to be acquired by Harvest Health & Recreation. As such, the Verano share price is linked to Harvest’s share price which has decreased significantly. In just that quarter the company experienced an unrealized loss of $55.9 million.

“It was a tough quarter for the Cannabis sector and that’s the primary reason for our unrealized loss.  The positive is that’s exactly what it was, unrealized. Brady continues to execute with tremendous success on CannCure and its transformation to Bluma Wellness while strategically building out his operational team and The Bluma Board. Paul Norman has built the foundation of an executive team and board that is simply unprecedented in this newly pioneered sector and their execution is what you would expect from a team of this caliber.” said SOL Global’s Chief Investment Officer Andrew DeFrancesco. “The investment team and I continue to provide the financing for growth while continuing to provide guidance toward strategy and execution for those core holdings. ”

The downturn hasn’t slowed the company. Last month, SOL Global bought 42% of Heavenly Rx Ltd. at a price of approximately $0.40 per share. The company also signed an agreement to acquire ECD, Inc., which operates as Humboldt County’s Northern Emeralds for $120 million payable in common shares. Northern Emeralds is expected to operate under Bluma Wellness.

SOL Global also plans to buy the Michigan-based MCP Wellness Inc. for a total of $35 million in cash and $115 million in common shock. MCP Wellness is presently operating three dispensaries in the Detroit area, is opening a fourth dispensary in Ann Arbor, and is finalizing plans to construct a cultivation facility.

In addition to that acquisition, SOL Global has signed a binding LOI to acquire six licensed cannabis dispensary companies and all One Plant intellectual property in California for $17 million, payable by $5 million in cash and $12 million in common shares, from Three Habitat Consulting Holdco Inc. that will subsequently operate under the nationally recognized “One Plant” brand. One Plant is expected to be the brand name of all of Bluma Wellnesses anticipated 49 retail stores spread throughout Florida, Michigan and California.

SOL Global Investments (CSE:SOL)(OTCPK:SOLCF) is changing from an international cannabis investment company to a U.S. multi-state cannabis operator (MSO) under the Life Sciences category of the Canadian Securities Exchange. In addition to the business designation change, the company is also changing its name to Bluma Wellness.

The company explained that “Bluma” is an ancient Hebrew word which means to flower, bloom or blossom. It selected this name based on a key principle of the business: to ensure that its patients and consumers utilize the plant-based products to enhance their daily lives, namely to bloom and thrive.

Brady Cobb, the CEO of SOL Global, says the timing of the proposed change of business is strategic, stating: “One of the innate strengths of SOL Global’s management is knowing when to enter a market, as is evidenced with our early success in Canada and Florida. We have planned this transition and the market entrance of our MSO to coincide with the rapid growth of the legal U.S. cannabis marketplace amid a presumptive tail wind from federal policy reform initiatives related to cannabis, a process I’ve been deeply involved with. We believe that the timing of our MSO’s entrance to the market will position us well to capture that growth.”

The company said in a statement that its initial operations will include assets in three (3) of the top ten (10) cannabis markets by revenue in the U.S., as forecasted by ArcView market research – Florida, Michigan and California.  SOL GLobal, now Bluma, said that it has focused in on a path to profitability by keeping the capital expense and the operating expense low with an efficiency-driven model of integrating operations and streamlining management, brand deployment and its  proprietary delivery models across all three states.

Mr. Cobb said that the new name was chosen to be synergistic with the company’s new direction, stating that “We chose the name Bluma Wellness, as an appropriate way to honor the true intent of each seed that we cultivate, harvest, and deliver as a product to ensure that every single one of our customers has a consistent and enriching experience that allows them to flourish.” He added: “We also look forward to bringing investors a new kind of MSO, one that is focused on profitability in the short term through operational and logistical efficiencies and a keen eye on the bottom line.”

SOL Global Investments Corp. (CSE: SOL) (OTCPK: SOLCF)  released its financial results for the year ending March 31, 2019 with net income of $94.9 million or $2.30 per diluted share.

Most of the income was based on a September 2018 sale of its LATAM investment to Aphria. The fair market value of the transaction was $297 million and the cost related to the investment was $93 million leaving a gain on the sale of $204 million. The company disclosed that it was aware of two legal actions relating to the disposal of the LATAM assets but noted that no amounts have been accrued in the financial statements. SOL Global almost doubled its payroll costs going from $6.7 million in 2018 to $13.3 million in 2019.

SOL Global’s Chief Investments Officer Andy DeFrancesco believes that the fiscal-year results validate the strategic creation and direction of the company, “Brady Cobb, SOL Global’s CEO, has been by my side since building the foundation of the US Cannabis Market since 2015. Specifically, Brady worked with the state of Florida to shape the legal and regulatory structure of one of the most coveted markets in the cannabis sector, while I built a structure and strategy around partnerships and financing.”

DeFrancesco added, “After early success in Canada, and followed by early success in the state of Florida, it was clear that the US cannabis market was poised for a strong run and incredible growth.  We took control of a faltering and nearly insolvent single-focused biotech venture and created what SOL Global has become, by assembling one of the best THC and CBD portfolios in the sector.”

DeFrancesco concluded “We moved quickly with our second Florida acquisition, 3 Boys Farm, as well as key investments in leading THC and CBD brands and operators throughout the US and California. We implemented a vision for growth in multiple verticals within the Cannabis sector and used our deep roots into the quickly evolving US Cannabis legislative reform efforts (where Brady is a huge contributor) to stay two steps ahead of our competition. We also looked to what we saw as related businesses, outside the box and towards the future.  It’s now time for SOL Global to focus on the growth of its THC operations via our new MSO and to foster the expansion of our vertically integrated Hemp & CBD Operations throughout the U.S., as well as Italy, the United Kingdom and Brazil under the most amazing teams we have assembled.”

Post Fiscal 2019

On April 8, 2019, SOL Global acquired CannCure, an entity that indirectly holds a 100% interest in 3 Boys Farms, LLC for C$55,128,200 or $41,207,519) which was partially satisfied by the issuance of 7,317,500 of the company’s common shares at a negotiated price of CAD $4.00 per share totaling $29,270,000 (USD$21,878,878).

There is a unique footnote with regards to 3 Boys Farms. If SOL Global agrees to sell 3 Boys within two years of the closing date, it will pay an earn-out structured as follows according to the company: (i) the company and the sellers will each receive funds from the sale proceeds as reimbursement of the amounts each had invested into 3 Boys; and (ii) any remaining amount from such sale proceeds would be split, with 42% of any additional proceeds being earned by the Company and 58% of any additional proceeds being earned by the sellers. If SOL Global doesn’t sell 3 Boys within two years of the closing date, it will be required to pay the sellers $107,025,000 (USD$80,000,000).

Following the end of the fiscal year, SOL Global completed a $50,000,000 private placement financing on July 8, 2019 by way of the issue and sale of a senior secured non-convertible debenture. In addition to the deal, the company announced that its President Jonathan Gilbert was resigning as the President of the wholly-owned subsidiary, Impact Biosciences Inc. (formerly Scythian Biosciences Inc.).

On July 29, 2019, the company announced a further investment into Heavenly Rx, bringing its total investment to $23,909,00.

Cobb went on to add, “By the end of 2019, the companies we’ve founded and have built from the ground up — our CBD-focused HeavenlyRx and our soon to launch multi state operator, 3 Emeralds — are expected to be operating independently, bringing months of hard work to fruition.”


HeavenlyRx Ltd is planning to list publicly as an independent operating CBD, Hemp and Wellness company in the U.S. which could happen in August 2019. HeavenlyRx, is under the leadership of former Kellogg’s North America President Paul Norman, who is performing a strategic review of the board and management and the team will be announced once this has been completed.  Additionally, as the company previously released, HeavenlyRx has closed on several of its key portfolio company investments including Blühen Botanicals (cultivation, processing and oil/isolate processing and production), Jones Soda (a leading premium soda-maker based in Seattle, Washington), TRU Brands (emerging health and wellness-focused food company), and Airganics (a company that develops high-performance wellness products). These portfolio companies consist of established brands that are generating revenue and soon to launch, innovative products, all of which have a unique application for the use of CBD.
