March 15, 2019 – Vancouver, British Columbia – Future Farm Technologies Inc. (the “Company” or “Future Farm”) (CSE: FFT) (OTCQB: FFRMF) announces that it has closed on a new investment from a fund of Yorkville Advisors Global, LP (“Yorkville”). Proceeds from the private placement will be used to refinance a previous investment made by Yorkville and to support the continued development of the Company’s projects in Puerto Rico, Rhode Island and throughout North America.
“Yorkville continues to be a very supportive partner for our endeavors, including our soon to open medical cannabis dispensaries in Puerto Rico,” comments William Gildea, CEO of Future Farm. “Puerto Rico is a strategic location for Future Farm expansion given its rapidly growing patient population and increasing social acceptance of medical cannabis. We are excited to partner with Clinica Verde to add more of their outstanding dispensaries providing legal, high quality flower, edibles and concentrates to patients residing on and visiting Puerto Rico at this time of island-wide restoration and growth.”
Future Farm’s expansion into Puerto Rico comes at a time of tremendous growth for the medical marijuana industry in Puerto Rico. The island now has over 100 licensed medical marijuana businesses in operation to serve its more than 56,000 patients.
Under the terms of the Yorkville financing, the Company has entered into two Secured Convertible Debentures. One Debenture is in the Principal Amount of US$696,197, which refinances the principal and accrued interest on the US$1,340,000 Convertible Debenture entered into with Yorkville in November 2018. The other Debenture is in the principal amount of US$500,000, which was paid to the Company in cash net of certain fees and expenses. The new Debentures bear annual interest at 8% and are repayable within 12 months, or convertible into Common Shares of the Company at a price of C$0.16 per share.
