TORONTO, Jan. 9, 2017 /CNW/ – Green Acre Capital (“GAC”) is pleased to announce the launch of the Green Acre Capital Fund (“the Fund”) which is exclusively dedicated to making investments in the legal cannabis industry in Canada, the U.S. and internationally. GAC was founded by a team of entrepreneurs with a strong track record of early success investing in the cannabis industry in Canada. The team is led by Managing Directors, Matt Shalhoub and Tyler Stuart. The board of advisors includes Shawn Dym, Managing Director of York Plains Investment Corp., Lorne Gertner, co-Founder of Tokyo Smoke and Vic Neufeld, CEO & Chairman of Aphria.

GAC has received lead investment commitments from York Plains Investment Corp. and Aphria Inc. (TSXV: APH) (OTC: APHQF) and is continuing to take on new investment commitments.

Shareholders of the Fund will have the benefit of investing alongside a team with extensive operating and management experience as well as deep-rooted strategic relationships with Canadian cannabis pioneers and leaders.

The legalization of cannabis offers a rare opportunity to invest in what will quickly become a multi-billion-dollar industry, as demand shifts away from the black market. The Fund plans to deploy capital, and leverage the experience of its leaders and advisors to help companies in the space succeed.
