Vancouver, BC, November 22, 2016 – INVICTUS MD STRATEGIES CORP. (“Invictus MD” or the “Company”) (CSE: IMH; OTC: IVITF; FRA: 8IS) is pleased to announce that it has closed an option agreement (the “Option”) to acquire up to 60% in a State of Nevada (“SNV”) Medical Marijuana Cultivation License located in Las Vegas, Nevada (the “Seller”).
The terms of the Option allow Invictus MD to acquire 10% of the Seller within 45 days after the Seller has obtained its final approval for cultivation from the SNV inspection department. Invictus MD will pay the Seller $150,000 CDN in cash to secure the Option. A preliminary inspection date has been booked for late 2016 and the final cultivation license is expected to be issued in the first quarter of 2017. Upon issuance of the cultivation license, Invictus MD will have the option to acquire a 10% equity stake from the Seller (“First Option”) for $500,000 USD in cash plus $1,725,000 USD in common shares of Invictus MD at an issue price equal to the volume weighted average price (“VWAP”) for the three trading days ending on the trading day prior to the date of delivery of the option exercise notice and converted to USD using the most recent Bank of Canada noon spot rate. The Seller also grants Invictus MD the sole and exclusive option to purchase an additional 50% of the Seller for $16,875,000 USD payable in any combination of cash and/or common shares of Invictus MD. This option will expire 183 days after the closing of the First Option.
Dan Kriznic, CEO of Invictus MD, commented, “The City of Las Vegas has always been on our radar. It is one of the few states that permits reciprocity of licenses, allowing anyone in the world holding a medical marijuana prescription card to purchase cannabis. Las Vegas is the number one tourist destination in the U.S. This market has tremendous potential with one of the toughest barriers to entry.”
