RavenQuest to Acquire 51% Stake in ACMPR Micro-Cultivator Applicant

RavenQuest Announces Intent to Purchase Majority Stake in Elephant Extracts

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — RavenQuest BioMed Inc. (CSE:RQB) (the “Company” or “RavenQuest”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a letter of intent with 1090252 B.C. Ltd. (“Elephant Extracts” or “Elephant”) in pursuit of a transaction involving the acquisition of 51% of the outstanding share capital of Elephant Extracts.

Elephant Extracts is a license applicant under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (“ACMPR”), as well as a distributor of cannabis products and accessories. The Health Canada application for Elephant Extracts includes a 10,000 square foot production facility, which will be classified as a “micro-cultivator” license upon passing of the Cannabis Act in Canada.

RavenQuest CEO, George Robinson, commented, “We are very excited to welcome Trevor Hinds and his team at Elephant Extracts into the RavenQuest family. Elephant’s vast extraction knowledge is a wonderful complement for RavenQuest’s revolutionary and science-based grow methodology, producing a powerful combination.”

RavenQuest is committed to helping micro-cultivators come into the legalized space across the country. We expect this will be the first of many micro-cultivators to work with RavenQuest.

RavenQuest CEO, George Robinson

Our services division, which has helped several LPs become licensed, brings an expertise which is unmatched in the cannabis space. Our experience in this highly regulated space brings precisely what is needed by the many micro-cultivators who wish to properly transition into the legalized space.

Trevor Hinds, President & CEO of Elephant, noted, “RavenQuest has shown a clear and distinct interest in the role of the micro-cultivator as we move toward legalization. We are very appreciative of RavenQuest’s recognition of the micro-cultivator’s value and are even more excited to join an organization with such clear leadership in the science of the cannabis plant.”

Under the terms of the transaction, RavenQuest will acquire a controlling interest (51%) in Elephant Extracts. This interest can be redeemed by Elephant Extracts at any time after it receives a license to produce under the ACMPR, and in consideration RavenQuest will be granted an ongoing royalty of 15% of the gross revenue from production at the facility developed by Elephant Extracts. Completion of the transaction with Elephant Extracts is subject to completion of due diligence, the negotiation of definitive documentation, and the receipt of any required regulatory approvals.
