Medicine Man Technologies Highlights Landmark Consolidation Strategy Creating One of North America's Largest Vertically Integrated Cannabis Operators with Projected Annual Revenues From Recent Proposed Acquisitions of Approximately $170M in 2019

Denver, CO – September 19, 2019 – REPUBLISHED – Medicine Man Technologies, Inc. (OTCQX: MDCL) (“Medicine Man Technologies” or the “Company”) announced a culmination of its roll-up strategy today that would solidify the Company as one of the largest vertically integrated cannabis operators in North America upon closing of these pending acquisitions—and as a deeply experienced retailer and manufacturer of cannabis-infused products and concentrates driven by a leadership team that has unprecedented experience in regulated cannabis markets.

As previously disclosed, the Company—which also includes a new executive team with decades of experience in mergers & acquisitions, private equity, strategic operations and corporate finance—has entered into binding term sheets to acquire some of the best-selling cannabis brands in the legal Colorado cannabis industry, a combination of pending transactions that spans 12 cultivation facilities (including Los Sueños Farms LLC, one of North America’s largest sustainable cannabis farms); seven proprietary extraction facilities (including Purplebee’s); seven manufacturers of infused products (including Medically Correct, one of Colorado’s largest edible manufacturers; licensed producer of incredibles in Colorado, and creators of new brands Quiq and Nove, set to launch this fall); 33 strategically located retail dispensaries (including five Starbuds-branded dispensaries in Colorado); and a state-of-the-art manufacturing / research and development lab (MedPharm’s Colorado facility has the first and only active cannabis research license in the state).

 

These acquisitions are made possible by the passage of House Bill 19-1090, which was signed into law by Colorado Gov. Jared Polis on May 29, 2019, thus opening up Colorado’s cannabis industry to outside investors and enabling increased investment by venture capitalists and private equity firms. Medicine Man Technologies Chief Executive Officer Andy Williams was a major driving force behind the Colorado cannabis industry’s push for public company ownership legislation, and he also sat on the rulemaking committee after the legislation was passed.

 

This new legislation allows public companies to wholly acquire licensed businesses in Colorado on or after Nov. 1, 2019, though these acquisitions would likely become final towards the end of the first or in the second quarter of 2020, pending due diligence, approval from local and state governments, and any other additional customary closing conditions.

 

“The natural progression of the modern cannabis industry is consolidation, and our vision for the future of Medicine Man Technologies has always been to bring together a group of experienced cannabis industry pioneers and the leading brands they’ve created—and we’re proud to finally tell the world about this years-in-the-making strategy coming to fruition,” said Andy Williams, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Medicine Man Technologies. “Not only are we banding together with other pioneers of the regulated cannabis market, but we’re bringing together a dozen individually profitable companies into a single publicly traded outfit, and we believe we are strategically positioned to increase efficiencies and profit margin over time.”

 

Medicine Man Technologies has entered into binding term sheets to acquire cultivation facility Los Sueños Farms LLC; diversified dispensary groups including Medicine Man, Colorado Harvest Company, Strawberry Fields, Roots Rx, Mesa Organics, and diverse dispensary locations owned by various ownership groups some run under the name Starbuds; infused products companies Medically Correct and Canyon LLC; concentrates manufacturers Dabble Extracts and Purplebee’s; R&D, intellectual property and holding company / phytopharmaceutical-grade dosage form manufacturer (home to product brands become, BATCH and Aliviar) MedPharm Holdings; and Colombia-based Green Equity, which holds international import and export licenses and IP for cultivation, manufacturing, extraction and R&D—and a 271-acre farm located outside Bogotá.

 

These veteran executive teams have a combined 150-plus years of experience in regulated cannabis markets, including Medically Correct Founders Rick Scarpello and Bob Eschino, Los Sueños Farms Founder Bob DeGabrielle (who joined the Company’s Board of Directors), Medicine Man Chief Executive Officer Sally Vander Veer, Co-Founder Pete Williams and Founding Member Pete Vasquez, Colorado Harvest Company Co-Founders Tim Cullen and Ralph Morgan, Canyon LLC Founder and Chief Executive Officer Morgan Iwersen, Starbuds Founder and Chief Executive Officer Brian Ruden and Managing Partner TJ Joudeh, Strawberry Fields Co-Founders Mike and Rich Kwesell, MedPharm Holdings Chief Executive Officer Albert Gutierrez, Mesa Organics Owners Jim and Pam Parco, Dabble Extracts Founder Josh Hindi, Roots Rx executives Robert Holmes and Steven Miller and others.

 

“Colorado operators are the most experienced and best-positioned operators in the world, and we’ve created some of the most tried-and-true brands in one of the most tightly regulated markets in the country,” said Williams of Colorado’s cannabis market, which is one of the largest cannabis markets in the U.S. “We’ve been watching the consolidation happening all around us, but while so many other multi-state operators have the money, they lack the experience with and passion for the plant. I like to say this collective talent pool has solved cannabis operating challenges that other companies don’t yet know they are going to have. And soon we will have economies of scale on our side.”

 

Most of these businesses report EBITDAs averaging around 20%, but Williams and his new colleagues believe they can increase those EBITDAs to approximately 30% via collaborative growth and the forthcoming economies of scale.

 

“Together we are creating Colorado’s premier cannabis company,” said Brian Ruden, Chief Executive Officer of Starbuds. “My colleague TJ Joudeh and I are proud to join forces with this team of Colorado cannabis pioneers, and we are confident that this network of industry-leading businesses across cultivation, extraction, production, retail and R&D business segments will become a formidable force in North American cannabis.”

 

The Company has received a recent capital commitment up to $21 million from strategic partner Dye Capital, whose Managing Partner Justin Dye has 25 years of experience in private equity, general management, operations, strategy, corporate finance and M&A and was recently appointed Chairman of the Board of Medicine Man Technologies. Dye Capital Partner Leo Riera, who has more than 30 years of experience in investment banking and fund management and was the Country Head for Bankers Trust in Venezuela for over a decade, was also appointed to the Company’s Board of Directors.

 

“This team has been strategically assembled for maximum impact—from my colleagues and myself in tactical plant-touching operations to our colleagues who bring vast experience in M&A and integration,” said Medically Correct Founder Bob Eschino. “We are confident in this group’s ability to fully take advantage of this first-of-its-kind opportunity.”

 

The Company is prepared for the important work ahead, thanks to its experienced executives and consultants who bring essential skillsets in public markets to the table.

 

Chief Operating Officer Joe Puglise is a seasoned executive in operational management, including past work as President of New York properties for iHeartMedia, where he oversaw approximately 300 employees and almost $200 million in annual revenue and $100 million in annual EBITDA. Since Joe joined the Company in 2018, Medicine Man Technologies has gained over +165%, while the New Cannabis Ventures’ Global Cannabis Stock Index tracker has retreated -10%, as of close of market Sept. 13, 2019. Senior Vice President of Finance Nancy Bush Huber brings over 25 years of executive management roles, including Chief Financial Officer and Vice President of Finance, for both public and private companies. Huber will be instrumental in establishing and managing the Company’s financial reporting and capital allocation processes.

 

General Counsel, Hon. Dan Pabon, brings expertise in emerging regulatory systems and system design, and he also has established strategic federal, state and local relationships over his 20 years of involvement in public decision-making. Chief Administrative Officer Lee Dayton Jr. brings over 25 years of investment banking and corporate development experience. Chief Strategy Officer Todd Williams brings more than 25 years of asset valuation and M&A experience. Former United Airlines Chief Information Officer Nirup Krishnamurthy, a technology and operations executive with over 20 years of experience across industries, will lead the Company’s technology integration. And at only 33, Chief Cultivation Officer Josh Haupt is already known as the “Steve Jobs of cannabis,” having literally written the book, Three A Light, on cultivation excellence.

 

“This well-rounded team has been assembled to include experts from each side of the regulated cannabis and public markets paradigms, and MedPharm Holdings is honored to be joining forces with such thoughtful professionals—many of whom we’ve admired for years,” said Dr. Tyrell Towle, MedPharm’s Director of Chemistry and Extraction. “Medicine Man Technologies will be able to cover the cannabis life cycle from its foundations in agriculture to its many end uses with consumers, and the scientist in me is confident that this team has what it takes to create a world-class cannabis company that will continue to lead by example.”

Medicine Man Technologies to Increase Its Manufacturing Efficiencies and Branded Product Offerings with Binding Term Sheet for Canyon LLC
  • Another industry pioneer that is considered one of Colorado’s leading manufacturers of all-natural, highly effective premium-infused edibles
  • Utilizes proprietary CO2 extraction process free of any non-medicinal plant constituents to isolate cannabis essential oil from plant materials
  • One of the leaders in the micro-dosing cannabis movement, with revenue from its gummies growing over 250% YOY
  • All its edible products are GMO-free and made in-house with all-natural or organic ingredients sourced locally whenever possible

 

 

Denver, CO – September 12, 2019 – Medicine Man Technologies, Inc. (OTCQX: MDCL) (“Medicine Man Technologies” or the “Company”), announced today that it has entered into a binding term sheet to acquire Canyon LLC (“Canyon”), a leading Colorado manufacturer of all-natural, discreet, and highly effective premium-infused edibles.

 

Under the terms of the transaction, Medicine Man Technologies will purchase Canyon LLC for $5.13 million, payable in cash and common stock of the Company that will be determined and set forth in the long form agreement among the parties.  The cash consideration, however, will not be greater than $2.565 million and the shares of common stock will be valued at $3.07 per share.  Based upon the year-to-date results, Canyon is expected to generate gross revenues of $3.3 million in 2019.  The purchase price may be subject to adjustment, which will be detailed in the long form agreement entered into among the parties.

 

“Our latest series of announcements have been predicated on building out our footprint of retail dispensaries,” said Andy Williams, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Medicine Man Technologies. “Canyon has been on our radar for several years given its strong following and high quality manufacturing and extraction methods. Its proprietary process using CO2 to extract cannabis oil from plant materials yields flavorful products. From hard candies, capsules, and micro-dosed gummies to its cannabis-infused beverages, the unique products derived from its cannabis oil have gained a deserving reputation and garnered a tremendous customer base. We believe this acquisition is important in furthering the build-out of our infrastructure and diversifying our branded product offerings.”

 

“Like Andy and the rest of his growing family of industry pioneers, we have been around since before the state went recreational,” said Morgan Iwersen, Founder, Co-Owner, and Chief Executive Officer of Canyon LLC. “We have conducted business with Andy over the years and have also come to recognize and admire him for being an influential driving force for our industry. With a lot of bigger corporate competitors looking to enter the state now, we felt it was time to join the Medicine Man Technologies family to help build a stronger unified company that can remain competitive with these larger corporations but still maintain the authenticity of our Colorado roots.”

 

“The time is right for Colorado companies to join forces and create a more expandable and national brand that can grow profitably despite external competition from corporate cannabis,” added Andrew Iwersen, Co-Owner and Managing Partner of Canyon LLC.

 

Management cautions that there can be no assurance that the targeted acquisition will achieve the stated gross revenue projection.

 

More information regarding the binding term sheet, including the closing conditions, are set forth in the Company’s current report on Form 8-K.

Medicine Man Technologies to Bolster Retail Distribution Channels with Planned Acquisition of Colorado Harvest Company

– Colorado Harvest Company operates three retail centers in the Denver Metro area and is the Company’s ninth proposed acquisition in 2019

 

– Company will benefit from added retail scale and cross-selling opportunities given its current strategy to acquire a fast-growing portfolio of companies and brands

 

– Industry pioneers Tim Cullen and Ralph Morgan, Co-Founders of Colorado Harvest Company, bring a wealth of retail experience and their proprietary, all-natural strains to the Company

 

Denver, CO –  Sept. 4, 2019 – Medicine Man Technologies, Inc. (OTCQX: MDCL) (“Medicine Man Technologies” or the “Company”), announced today that it has entered into a binding term sheet to acquire Colorado Harvest Company (“Colorado Harvest”), an operator of two leading cannabis dispensaries in Denver and one in nearby Aurora.

 

Under the terms of the transaction, Medicine Man Technologies will purchase Colorado Harvest for $12.5 million, or 1.25 times its anticipated 2019 revenue of $10 million. The purchase price will consist of $4 million in cash and $8.5 million in Company stock, equating to 2,881,356 shares issued at $2.95 per share. The terms of the transaction can also be referenced in the Company’s 8-K, which outlines the closing conditions and are conditioned upon the satisfaction or mutual waiver of certain conditions, including regulatory approval.

 

“Tim and Ralph are early industry pioneers that built an avid following for their proprietary naturally grown strains when recreational cannabis was legalized in Colorado,” said Andy Williams, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Medicine Man Technologies. “Given their many years of underlying cultivation experience, Tim and Ralph have perfected their formula for growing cannabis naturally with a focus on utmost quality using environmentally sensitive grow practices that many consumers enjoy. Their combined cannabis knowledge even led them to begin producing CO2-extracted cannabis oil that they later turned into a company called O.penVAPE, now the leading cannabis personal vaporizer in the country. Adding their deep retail, cultivation, and product development experience to the Company will prove very beneficial as we continue with our plans to vertically integrate our business and look for future cross-selling opportunities from our expanding operations.”

 

“Colorado HB 19-1090 has ushered in the next phase of development for the Colorado cannabis industry by permitting outside investors to invest in the Colorado cannabis space,” said Tim Cullen, Chief Executive Officer of Colorado Harvest Company. “Following the passage of this law, the time was never more right for us to join the outstanding team at Medicine Man Technologies, who is now free to invest in the industry, given the synergies involved. Their growing team of Colorado cannabis pioneers is very impressive, and we are happy to be aligned with their joint efforts, all soon to be under one roof. Furthermore, the management team at Medicine Man Technologies is incredibly accomplished, and they are executing successfully on their plan to bring financial discipline and a clear strategy in their efforts to build the region’s premier cannabis company. We are delighted to join them in this next leg of growth.”
