- TGOD cited by The Motley Fool for its alternative products, particularly its focus on cannabis-infused beverages and its possible role as a partner for a brand name producer
- The company also named high profile American investor and TV personality Tim Seymour to its advisory board; it says Seymour will offer advice on global finance strategies
- TGOD updated its transaction regarding the spinoff of its wholly owned subsidiary, TGOD Acquisition Corporation (“SpinCo”), and announced a private placement of up to $10 million
The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX: TGOD) (OTCQX: TGODF) has attained a higher profile by adding well known investor and TV strategist Tim Seymour to its advisory board. TGOD was also highlighted by site The Motley Fool for its focus on alternative products. TGOD also described a private placement that would have gross receipts of up to $10 million.
Tim Seymour is a well-known television personality with more than 22 years as a capital markets professional. He appears on CNBC’s “Fast Money” and is seen as “invaluable” to the TGOD as it builds its organic cannabis brand, according to CEO Brian Athaide (http://cnw.fm/ZdK8p).
TGOD also announced a private placement that would generate up to $10 million in gross receipts in connection with its spinoff of its SpinCo subsidiary. The non-brokered private placement would offer up to 20 million subscription receipts at a price of $0.50 apiece (http://cnw.fm/sfG8l). The transaction is subject to regulatory and court approval.
The Motley Fool website highlighted TGOD as one of five emerging growers in the Canadian cannabis industry (http://cnw.fm/gQ4uY). It also conjectured about TGOD’s role as a possible future partner in the beverage industry:
“The Green Organic Dutchman, which was one of the largest pot-based initial public offerings ever earlier this year, is currently expected to be the fourth-largest producer when at peak capacity. Management has suggested that the company can deliver 195,000 kilograms per year. But it’s not gross yield that allows The Green Organic Dutchman to stand out. Instead, it’s the company’s focus on alternative products.”
“Amid a flurry of press releases in June, TGOD, as the company is also known, announced that it was going to construct a 287,245-square-foot facility on its 72.4-acre Valleyfield property that would be devoted to beverage and edible production. TGOD’s focus on cannabis-infused beverages is of particular interest given how eager beverage companies have been to spark their own growth by entering the marijuana space. In August, Molson Coors Brewing formed a joint venture with HEXO Corp., while Constellation Brands announced a $3.8 billion equity investment into Canopy Growth. It’s clear that brand-name beverage companies have interest in partnering with the cannabis industry, and TGOD could be a logical partner with its foray into beverages.”
“As noted above, be aware that TGOD’s beverage and edible production will be at the mercy of Parliament and its ability to expand what consumables are legal.”
