Leviathan Cannabis Intends to Acquire Its Second Late Stage ACMPR Applicant in the Niagara Region


Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – January 17, 2019) – Leviathan Cannabis Group Inc. (CSE: EPIC) (the “Company” or “Leviathan“) announces it has entered into a letter of intent to acquire all the issued and outstanding shares of MariGrow Inc. (“MariGrow” or the “Transaction“).

MariGrow is a late stage applicant that has received its Confirmation of Readiness from Health Canada’s Office of Medical Cannabis. MariGrow has secured a 5-acre property with an existing 32,000 square foot building in a remote industrial park in Haldimand County just outside Port Dover, Ontario. The interior of the building is completely gutted. Leviathan plans to provide the necessary capital for the retrofit and to transform the building into an indoor cultivation facility. The property also offers efficient greenhouse and outdoor expansion capacity.

“From our inception, the Company’s mandate has been to maintain a full pipeline of acquisition opportunities and seize those which adhere to our core growth strategy,” states Martin J. Doane, CEO of Leviathan. “MariGrow represents a unique opportunity for Leviathan to become a licensed producer of top-shelf cannabis within the next six months. In addition, the MariGrow facility is only 35-40 minutes from our Pelham site enabling us to share staff, contractors and other key resources. We are also excited to work with the MariGrow team, which adds a group of extremely capable and experienced cannabis growers to Leviathan’s platform.”

The transaction is targeted to close by February 15, 2019.
