THIS NEWS RELEASE IS NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Innovative Properties Inc. d/b/a Nabis Holdings (CSE:NAB; OTC: INNPF, FRA:7IP) (“Nabis” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding Letter of Intent (“LOI”) to purchase assets from PDT Technologies LLC (“PDT”), including extraction & production equipment and rights to lease the current production facility in Port Townsend, WA. The LOI also includes licensing rights to produce Chong’s Choice Brand CO2 Vape Cartridges, one of the leading and most recognizable brands in the cannabis space. PDT is currently evaluating additional product licensing opportunities with the Chong’s Choice brand which would enable them to engage in the manufacture, marketing and distribution of: indoor and outdoor flower, pre-rolls, and other cannabis based products.
Chong’s Choice is a legendary brand in cannabis space, as one-half of the legendary comedy duo Cheech & Chong. Nabis believes this is an excellent addition to the lifestyle and recreational aspect of the Company’s vertically integrated investment portfolio. PDT has an already established production facility to produce high grade concentrate cannabis. Assuming the closing of this investment, Nabis plans to expand the existing operations by constructing a new ISO designed extraction clean room and GMP lab facility, with new highly specialized equipment, including two new extraction lines, which could produce up to 20,500 KG of cannabis concentrate on an annual basis. The expansion cost is expected to be approximately USD $3 million to Nabis, with an expected completion date of six months after a signed definitive agreement.
Washington State is a relatively mature state with proven metrics, thus Nabis will be looking for additional investments in the state along with many other limited license states in the near term as part of the Company’s multi-state cannabis investment strategy.
