Pursuant to the partnership and pending regulatory approval, Gage has been granted an exclusive license to produce and distribute the SLANG product suite in Michigan, including its category-leading products O.penVAPE, Pressies, District Edibles, and Bakked. SLANG will also provide sales consulting services and will receive royalty payments for each branded product sold in the state.

“Partners are the backbone of the SLANG network, and we are excited to embark on this initiative with a great operator like Gage,” said Peter Miller, CEO of SLANG Worldwide.  “Gage has demonstrated an ability to scale as leaders in a rapidly growing and competitive market. By supporting their business with the diversified SLANG product offerings, we expect even greater mutual scale and success. This deal is directly on target with our licensing and partnership strategy, and we look forward to growing together.”

The addition of the SLANG brands will strengthen Gage’s offering in the vape, edible, and concentrate product categories. Production of the additional products will utilize Gage’s increasing cultivation and processing capacity in the state. Gage currently operates four provisioning centers in Michigan, with eight additional stores slated for opening.

“Gage understands that partnering with industry leading brands like SLANG elevates the Michigan cannabis market and provides consumers with a range of products that are of exceptional quality,” said a representative of Gage. “Gage is unwavering in its commitment to bringing only the best cannabis products and brands to Michigan.”

Gage’s operating affiliates are fully licensed in Michigan for the cultivation, processing and distribution of cannabis products. Gage’s state-wide retail presence includes the flagship Cookies-branded provisioning center in the heart of Detroit. SLANG has also partnered with Cookies, a leading cannabis and lifestyle brand, in three other states.

“I am very excited to see this collaboration between two companies that are each innovators and leaders in their own segment of the cannabis market,” said Bruce Linton, Executive Chairman of Gage and an investor in SLANG. “Partnerships like this are a great way for both companies to accelerate their growth in a capital-efficient manner, which is crucial in today’s market.”

Michigan has historically been one of the top five largest cannabis markets in the United States and previously boasted the second largest medical patient base, only behind California, according to New Frontier Data. Adult-use cannabis sales in Michigan began in late 2019 and have been growing steadily since then with 27% month-over-month growth from March to April 2020, based on data from the Michigan Marijuana Regulatory Agency. A recent study by Michigan State University estimated that total cannabis sales in the state could reach $3 billion within the next five years.

Subject to the receipt of applicable regulatory approvals, SLANG’s brands are expected to be available in Michigan at provisioning centers across the state, including those operated by Gage, by the fourth quarter of this year.
