NEW YORK, Feb. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Better Choice Company, Inc. (BTTR) (the “Company” or “Better Choice”), an animal health and wellness company, today announced the execution of a non binding letter of intent to form a joint venture (“JV”) with cbdMD, Inc. (NYSE American: YCBD, YCBD PR A), a leading cannabidiol (CBD) consumer brand.

Subject to the negotiation and execution of definitive agreements both parties intend to contribute certain CBD animal health related assets, including brands, CBD supply, logistics, service agreements, intellectual property, back office support and other assets with the mutual goal of expanding their respective hemp derived CBD pet brands, in exchange for 50% ownership in the newly formed JV.

Initially, the JV will be focused on launching “Halo Hemp”, “powered by cbdMD”, which will be manufactured by Better Choice utilizing cbdMD’s CBD supply. Both parties will leverage their sales teams, marketing capabilities, online presence, and distribution channels to maximize the economies of scale of the partnership.

“In a very short period of time, the team at cbdMD has built two award-winning and market leading brands along with a comprehensive CBD infrastructure. Better Choice’s entry into the hemp derived CBD pet market, through our brands, including recently acquired Halo, could be accelerated through a partnership with the cbdMD team. In doing so, the to be formed JV will benefit by integrating our sales capabilities into well-established distribution channels, which includes major retailers. The CBD pet market is at the very early stages and there is more than enough room for several brands to become leaders the marketplace. In working together, we can leverage each other’s strengths,” stated Michael Young, Chairman of the Board of Better Choice.

“We are proud to have established a secure supply chain with dedicated, 2018 Farm Bill compliant, hemp farms and extraction facilities to ensure the highest quality and integrity of the raw materials we use.  Our staff of over 40 full time sales consultants are rapidly growing our distribution channels. We are also in the process of obtaining our NASC certification, which many larger retailers in the pet industry require for product placement. We believe this potential joint venture with Better Choice will help accelerate our goal of big box retail deployment,” said Martin Sumichrast, Chairman & Co-CEO of cbdMD, Inc.
