Kitchener, Ontario, July 31, 2018 - James E. Wagner Cultivation Corporation (“JWC” or the “Corporation”) (TSX VENTURE: JWCA), a leading licensed cannabis producer, is pleased to announce that on July 23, 2018, it entered into a consulting agreement (the “Agreement”) with leading investor relations firm, First Canadian Capital Corp. (“FCC”), pursuant to which FCC will provide JWC with consulting, investor relations and strategic corporate communications services. JWC anticipates that FCC will assist in increasing awareness of the Corporation within the cannabis industry and public markets.
Under the terms of the Agreement, JWC will pay FCC $6,000 per month for a period of twelve months (for an anticipated total of $72,000). In addition, JWC has granted FCC options to purchase a total of 300,000 common shares in the capital of the Corporation (the “Options”). The Options will vest in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange, at an exercise price of $1.15. The Agreement and issuance of Options remain subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
George Aizpurua, Vice President of FCC, said: “There are many methods used to produce cannabis under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations. Consumers, patients, and industry leaders have become familiar with the nuances associated with these methods. JWC, in partnership with Canopy Rivers Corporation, the strategic investment arm of Canopy Growth Corporation, boasts a proprietary growing methodology – GrowthStorm™ which is based on aeroponic technology originally developed by NASA. Having a process that is difficult to replicate is a game changer to this lucrative industry where many of the methods used do not sustain superior plant health, consistent high quality and high potency. The FCC team is beyond excited to have been selected as JWC’s capital markets and investor relations advisors and look forward to carrying the opportunity across North American and international markets.”
Nathan Woodworth, Chief Executive Officer and President of JWC, commented; “With the initiation of an ongoing relationship in investor relations with First Canadian Capital, JWC is pleased to anticipate an increase in our visibility. This is a key moment in cannabis history, and we are proud to be a part of it. We are happy to be working with First Canadian Capital, who we believe are the best candidate to help spread our message of the important and cutting edge work we are doing in this industry.”
JWC’s wholly-owned subsidiary is a Licensed Producer under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (“ACMPR”) and JWC is a premium cannabis brand, focusing on producing clean, consistent cannabis. JWC uses an advanced and proprietary aeroponic platform named GrowthStorm™. JWC was founded as a family company and prides itself on its family values. JWC began as a collective of patients and growers under the Marijuana Medical Access Regulations (the precursor to ACMPR). Since its inception, JWC has remained focused on providing the best possible patient experience. JWC’s operations are based in Kitchener, Ontario.
