TransCanna Holdings Inc. announced it is acquiring California-based Lyfted Farms, Inc. in a deal valued at $6 million. TransCanna is a Canadian-based company with its operations located throughout California. TransCanna operates the largest vertically integrated cannabis facility in the state. 

The agreed-upon total purchase price was approximately $6,150,000. It will consist of: cash payment of $550,000 ($150,000 advanced as a deposit), the purchase of 2,660,750 common shares priced at C$0.80 per share, and an unsecured, non-interest bearing promissory note of $4,000,000. There will be restrictions on trading the shares based on applicable capital markets laws. The promissory note will be repaid if certain equity raises are completed on or before June 30th, 2020. The specified equity raise is dependent on Lyfted Farms completing certain specified production targets.

Upon completion of the agreement, Lyfted Farms will transition to TransCanna’s 196,000 square foot facility and begin production there. Lyfted founder, Bob Blink, said, “Our team is committed to TransCanna and is very excited about the next steps. As most investors have seen sentiment cool in the cannabis space recently, we feel this is the perfect opportunity to build a brand focused company. TransCanna’s business model addresses the problem of cannabis market fragmentation. It is with that in mind that Lyfted shareholders, myself included, have committed to significantly increasing our investment stake in TransCanna.”

“The greatest asset we are acquiring is the talent of Lyfted’s management team,” said Steve Giblin, CEO of TransCanna. “The Lyfted team is working in concert with the SolDaze and Daily teams from previous acquisitions, which has provided an immediate opportunity to substantially increase the scale of our operations. We welcome Bob Blink and his team to TransCanna and we appreciate their vote of confidence by significantly increasing their share position in our company.”

TransCanna provides what they call a “closed-loop ecosystem” for cannabis production. They say their closed-loop ecosystem allows for control of the plant from seed to sale, cost savings from vertical integration, centralized manufacturing, top industry talent in edibles, production, manufacturing, sales and distribution, a consistently high-quality product, and reliability. LyftedFarms is an indoor cannabis cultivation operation located in the Central Valley of California. They provide a hand-trimmed product to their customer base. They say their goal is “to consistently grow high-grade cannabis with only the most exceptional aroma, flavor, and finest quality.” Lyfted Farms products are tested by 2 River Labs in Sacramento.
