TransCanna Subsidiary Opens Bank Account with California Based Credit Union
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 10, 2020) - TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN) (XETR: TH8) ("TransCanna" or the "Company") TransCanna announces that Lyfted Farms Inc. (a wholly-owned subsidiary) has opened two banking accounts with a local California credit union based in Modesto, California.
The credit union has agreed to open accounts to service both the Lyfted Farms licensed cannabis commercial activity and a second account for the Higher Standard Apparel Co., which merchandises Lyfted Farms Brand apparel@.
The accounts are being opened to full-service all financial business needs after more than a year of due diligence on the part of the financial institution, including on-site visits to Lyfted Farms facilities, and will be operational by September 15th, 2020. Lyfted Farms payroll and payments to vendors will now be dispatched through conventional banking methods via the credit union account and will require less time and expense to process.
"We are pleased to be working with a local California based credit union as our financial services provider," says Bob Blink, TransCanna CEO. "The organization has been servicing this community for decades and was founded by agricultural producers who, like us, live and work here, so we look forward to working with a respected organization that has the same level of appreciation for our market and our community as we do."
Blink adds that the Federal prohibition on cannabis on the mainstream/non-credit union banking system has put a strain on legitimate businesses and that conducting large transactions in cash, as many licensed cannabis companies are forced to do, is a cumbersome and less secure process.
"Our growth is making banking a greater necessity with every passing day," says Blink."
The opening of the accounts represents historic firsts for both Lyfted Farms Inc., to have access to traditional banking services, and for a local California-based credit union to have a cannabis-based business client.
The Company further announces it has granted a total of 200,000 incentive stock options to consultants involved in the development of the Company's operations. The options are exercisable for a period of one year from the date of grant at an exercise price of $1.06 per common share in the capital of the Company.
The stock options are being granted pursuant to the terms of the Company's stock option plan and are subject to regulatory approval.
