MIAMI, Dec. 17, 2020 /CNW/ – Cansortium Inc. (“Cansortium” or the “Company”) (CSE: TIUM.U), (OTCQB: CNTMF), a vertically-integrated provider of premium-quality medical cannabis operating under the Fluent™ brand, today announced that it has reached an agreement in principle with the holders of its February 2019 Convertible Notes (the “Notes”) to extend the maturity dates of the Notes to December 2022. The Company had previously announced in August 2020 amendments to the Notes that extended the maturity dates to December 31, 2020, with an automatic extension to February 28, 2021 upon agreement by the majority noteholders. The majority noteholders have agreed to the automatic extension to allow the parties to finalize the documentation of the longer-term extension.
“The extension of the $10.0M convertible Notes is an important milestone, significantly improving the Company’s balance sheet,” said Executive Chairman, Neal Hochberg. “Additionally, we are in advanced discussions with multiple investor groups to address our debt maturing in May 2021. Over the past year, the Special Committee has led the restructuring of the business of the Company, disposing non-U.S. assets and focusing on operations in Florida, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Texas and more than doubling monthly revenue.”
“As we continue to hit the milestones we set out for 2020, which includes the new cultivation facility that is expected to achieve a first harvest in the first quarter of 2021,” added Chief Executive Officer, Robert Beasley, “we believe the Company is well-positioned for strong revenue growth and positive cash flow in 2021 and beyond.”
