Moncton, New Brunswick-based cannabis producer Organigram (TSX VENTURE: OGI) (OTC: OGRMF), recently agreed to buy 25% of Alpha-Cannabis® Pharma GmbH (ACG) for 8,333 common shares, or €1,625,000. The closing is subject approval under German law.
Upon ACG achieving certain milestones, Organigram will pay ACG an additional €875,000 in common shares.
The deal comprises two supply agreements: 1) for the supply of cannabidiol isolate from ACG to Organigram, and 2) for the supply of dried cannabis flower from Organigram to ACG. In addition, ACG and Organigram may jointly bid on licenses to supply medical cannabis to the German market.
