Schwazze, Formerly Operating as Medicine Man Technologies, Inc., Provides Business Update
July 7th, 2020
Company Shares Pro forma Financial Results Including Mesa Organics Acquisition
Terminates Binding Term Sheets for Two Announced Acquisitions
Reiterates Commitment to Building Leading Vertically Integrated Cannabis Platform
Schwazze, formerly operating as Medicine Man Technologies, Inc. (OTCQX: SHWZ) (“Schwazze” or “the Company”), a leading vertically-integrated Colorado cannabis company, today provided a business update. Specifically the Company shared the pro forma financial results that reflect the acquisition of Mesa Organics, which closed on April 20, 2020 and announced the termination of previously named term sheets including “the Dabble Term Sheet” with Cold Baked, LLC and Golden Works, LLC, the “Los Sueños Term Sheet” with Los Suenos, LLC and Emerald Fields Grow, LLC, and the “Farm Boy Term Sheet” (as part of the Los Sueños Farm acquisition) with Farm Boy, LLC and Baseball 18, LLC.
Pro Forma Financial Results Including Acquisition of Mesa Organics
The Company provided unaudited condensed combined pro forma financial results for the first three months of 2020, the full year 2019, and balance sheet as of March 31, 2020. These financial results reflect the acquisition of Mesa Organics, which closed on April 20, 2020. The Company believes that providing the pro forma results will enable shareholders to evaluate its ongoing performance more accurately.
Nancy Huber, Chief Financial Officer of Schwazze said, “We are excited to have Mesa Organics and the extraction and manufacturing business, Purplebee’s, as a cornerstone in the vertically integrated platform we are building in Colorado. In the pro forma 2019 Income Statement, Mesa Organics was accretive to Schwazze by $0.09 cents per share, and we believe this business will continue to be accretive to our overall platform. Additionally, since the closing of the acquisition, we have made significant progress in integrating the Mesa Organics and Purplebee’s operations. We are excited about the opportunity ahead and look forward to sharing our results going forward.”
The unaudited condensed combined pro forma results including standalone Schwazze and Mesa Organics historical results, and explanatory notes were included in a Form 8-K/A filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on July 2, 2020.
Acquisition Strategy Update
Schwazze terminated the binding term sheets for two announced acquisitions with Dabble Extracts, a cannabis concentrates company, and Los Sueños Farms, an outdoor and greenhouse cannabis cultivator. Following the signing of Colorado House Bill 19-1090, the Company quickly moved forward on numerous term sheets with Colorado cannabis operators with limited due diligence completed. However, throughout the Company’s rigorous M&A process, key business and valuation issues were identified and as such, the Company decided to no longer pursue the acquisitions of Dabble and Los Sueños Farms.
Justin Dye, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Schwazze shared, “We know that continuing to focus on shareholder return is the right thing to do at this time. Our Board believes that it is in our best interest to build a differentiated business in Colorado. Additionally, we remain confident in our ability to grow organically and through future merger and acquisition opportunities. We have a strong M&A and real estate growth plan and infrastructure to provide us a pipeline of opportunities in the marketplace.”
The Company reiterated its commitment to establishing a leading vertically integrated platform in the cannabis space. With a proven leadership team comprised of Fortune 500 executives and cannabis experts, the Company will continue to make decisions that uniquely position Schwazze to provide the most trusted products and experiences for consumers. The Company remains in negotiations with the following announced acquisitions, Roots Rx, Medicine Man, MedPharm, Canyon Cultivation, and Medically Correct.
