— Sunniva Inc. (“Sunniva”, the “Company”, “we”, or “our”) (CSE:SNN, OTCQB:SNNVF) announces that effective June 12, 2020, its wholly-owned subsidiary, CP Logistics, LLC (“CPL”) has agreed to a reversal of transaction agreement (the “Reversal Transaction”) with respect to the April 29, 2019 Membership Interest Purchase Agreement whereby CPL acquired an 80% membership interest in each of 420 Distribution, LLC (“420”) and Coachella Distillation, LLC (“Coachella”) (collectively, the “Companies”) from Group Two Investments, LLC (“Group Two”) and assumed two subleases (the “Subleases”) at the commercial property in Coachella, CA (the “Distribution Facility”). Pursuant to the Reversal Transaction, CPL has ceased operations at the Distribution Facility and will relinquish the 80% membership interests acquired from each of 420 and Coachella and have the original purchase price returned. The total consideration for the Companies was not material. The Subleases will revert back to Group Two and CPL will have its name removed from the provisional distribution license and the provisional type “P” manufacturing license with the California Bureau of Cannabis Control and the California Department of Public Health (collectively the “Licenses”), respectively.
Sunniva will have no ongoing obligations to Group Two or the Companies.
In addition, Sunniva announces that as part of the previously stated cost saving measures being taken through the reduction of its business activities in California it will be ceasing operations of its extraction facility in Cathedral City (the “Extraction Facility”) as soon as practical.
Sunniva has or will be evaluating opportunities to divest of certain pieces of packaging and extraction equipment from the Distribution Facility and the Extraction Facility.
