CLS Holdings USA, Inc. Acquisition Target Oasis Cannabis Records Highest Single Day Sales
LAS VEGAS, NV–(Marketwired – March 15, 2018) – CLS Holdings USA, Inc. (OTCQB: CLSH) “CLS,” a development stage diversified cannabis company operating as Cannabis Life Sciences, today announced that its acquisition target, Oasis Cannabis, recorded its largest sales date on record since July 1, 2017, when Nevada first began allowing retail sales to adults over 21 years of age.
On Friday, March 9, Oasis Cannabis collected over $38,000 in gross receipts including all state and local taxes. That number beat its previous record of just under $35,000 on Friday, October 13, 2017. “We don’t compare any normal sales day with July 1st,” said Ben Sillitoe, CEO and Co-Founder of Oasis Cannabis. “That day was sort of a holiday and a complete anomaly. People came out to celebrate the end of cannabis prohibition in Nevada and make symbolic purchases. “Las Vegas typically sees a reduction in overall tourism during the winter months and each year the city experiences an influx of college basketball gamblers, conventioneers and college students on spring break in March.”
Daily sales at Oasis Cannabis have been increasing over the last 6 weeks due to seasonal changes in Las Vegas tourism but the recent record sales day resulted mostly from attendees at the 2 day concert held by the band 311. Approximately 5,000 people attended each 311 Day concert held on 3/10/18 and 3/11/18. Sillitoe estimates that over 500 of them chose Oasis Cannabis for their marijuana needs while they were in Las Vegas. “We are very proud that many of the 311 Excitable fans chose to experience the Oasis Cannabis destination during their 3-11 day vacation,” said Sillitoe. “We hope they will recommend us to their friends and family in their hometowns across the country.”
Oasis Cannabis is a fully integrated cannabis operation in Nevada. Las Vegas-based Oasis Cannabis’ (http://oasiscannabis.com) operations include a grow, extraction and conversion processing and a retail dispensary. CLS has executed a definitive agreement to acquire Oasis. The closing of the transaction, which is subject to the satisfaction of a number of conditions, is expected to occur in the second quarter of 2018.
