FinCanna Acquires All Assets of Royalty Portfolio Co. Green Compliance
Vancouver, British Columbia, August 31, 2020 - FinCanna Capital Corp. (“FinCanna”) (CSE: CALI) (OTCQB: FNNZF), is pleased to announce that it has acquired all the assets and economic interests of its royalty portfolio company Green Compliance Inc. (“Green Compliance”). Green Compliance’s ezGreen software provides state-of-the-art enterprise compliance and point-of-sale (POS) software solutions for licensed cannabis dispensaries and cultivators in the United States.
The asset acquisition occurred as a result of FinCanna and Green Compliance being unable to reach a resolution regarding the restructuring of their royalty agreement. As a result, FinCanna and Green Compliance came to an agreement whereby Green Compliance would assign all of its assets to FinCanna in exchange for FinCanna foregoing its rights to recover its royalty investment from Green Compliance.
The original royalty agreement called for FinCanna to receive a perpetual royalty equal to 10% of consolidated gross revenues of Green Compliance upon FinCanna funding US$3 million, subject to certain buyback conditions. FinCanna has funded $1.75 million to date. As a result of this equity re-structuring, FinCanna now owns 100% of the assets and economic interests of Green Compliance.
FinCanna CEO, Andriyko Herchak, comments, “We are very pleased with this outcome whereby we now own 100% of the assets, including the ezGreen software, and the economic interests of Green Compliance. We believe the ezGreen software is the best on the market and we see great potential for sales growth. We also want to acknowledge the cooperation of Green Compliance shareholders in completing this transaction. We will provide updates with respect to our future plans for ezGreen and are confident that this acquisition will be a strong win for our shareholders.”
Green Compliance’s ezGreen software is the only HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) certified point-of-sale software in the market. It was developed with Automated Healthcare Solutions (“AHCS”), one of the largest point of care software solution providers, with an 18-year operational history in the medical sector and supports 3,500+ active physician operated clinics and dispensaries. The ezGreen software was created to provide similar compliance guidelines, standards, and disciplines to the licensed cannabis industry at the U.S. state and federal levels as is required in the pharmaceutical industry.
The ezGreen proprietary Business Intelligence Dashboard (BID) is a proven front-to-back compliance solution that supports both HIPAA and State Cannabis Control Boards by ensuring secure customer data storage and transmission that protects customers from potential security breaches and financial and criminal liability resulting from such violations.
