Alliance Growers Closes Lead Order of $2m Private Placement
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - August 30, 2018) - Alliance Growers Corp. (CSE: ACG) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed the lead order of 2,000,000 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.14 per Unit from a European independent brokerage firm that is active in all the world's main stock markets. On August 27, 2018, the Company announced a 14,500,000-unit private placement (the "Private Placement") at a price of $0.14 per Unit.
The proceeds from the $2,000,000 financing will be used primarily to advance the Company's two main projects; the continued development of the Cannabis Biotech Complex and the construction of the Biocannatech facility in Montreal, a late stage ACMPR applicant.
Pharmagreen, in conjunction with Alliance, is currently completing the pre-construction phase of the 62,000 square foot Cannabis Biotech Complex, of which Alliance is acquiring a 30% equity interest and income share. Pharmagreen has filed for regulatory approvals from Health Canada and has meetings scheduled in September with the officials from Fraser Valley Regional District and Mission to receive final approvals for development of the Cannabis Biotech Complex.
Biocannatech has received all required construction permits for the facility and is now issuing a site readiness evidence package to Heath Canada. Proceeds from this financing will allow the Company to commence construction and move the Company closer to receiving an ACMPR license by November.
Commenting on the financing, Dennis Petke, Alliance Growers President and CEO said, "We are very pleased with the strong response to this recent financing. Based on the demand, it is expected that it will be oversold as we have already received commitments for another 8 million units since the private placement was announced. The Company will continue to close a series of private placements at progressively higher prices over the next several months to fund the business plan. We would like to thank our shareholders for their continued support as we work towards realizing our vision of becoming a successful global medical cannabis company".
