May 30, 2019 – Vancouver, BC: The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTCQB:BOSQF) (Frankfurt:YG3) is pleased to announce its wholly owned subsidiary, Urban Juve Provisions Inc., has entered into a definitive agreement to license 56 product formulas for THC and CBD infusion to Antler Retail Holdings Inc. in California, for sale in the United States.
Pursuant to the agreement, Antler Retail has agreed to pay $1 million for a perpetual licence in the U.S. to a catalogue of white label formulas consisting of 10 personal care products designed for THC infusion, 1 set of capsules formulated with ingredients to help prevent hangovers, 6 CBD skin care formulations, 8 formulations for a CBD men’s line, 3 unisex CBD personal care products, 8 teas and 20 edibles for CBD and THC infusion, including hard candies and gummies, for a total of 56 formulas.
Antler Retail has agreed to issue 5,000,000 shares of common stock of its parent company, “Antler”, a private corporation, to Urban Juve as payment for $1 million in licensing fees at a deemed value of $0.20 per share. Urban Juve has a right of first refusal to act as distributor, to supply CBD and to act as the manufacturer on all CBD products developed by Antler Retail using the licensed formulas.
Antler is a related party to Yield Growth, as Krystal Pineo and Penny White are both directors and significant shareholders of Yield Growth and Antler, and together control 30% of the outstanding shares of Antler, prior to the closing of this transaction. The $0.20 deemed fair market value of the Antler shares was assessed by Urban Juve management based on the price of Antler’s most recent private placement, whereby Antler raised approximately $1,500,000 at $0.20 per unit from non related parties, each unit consisting of one share and one share purchase warrant. Urban Juve has agreed to enter into an escrow agreement pursuant to which the 5,000,000 Antler shares will be released from escrow over a three year period commencing on completion of an initial public offering (“IPO”) by Antler. Antler has signed an engagement letter with a Canadian broker-dealer to complete an IPO on a best efforts basis. However, there is no obligation and no guarantee that Antler will complete an IPO.
