Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada — August 1, 2019 — — The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE: BOSS) (OTCQB: BOSQF) (FSE: YG3) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a definitive agreement dated July 31, 2019 to provide a non exclusive license for the worldwide rights to 8 hemp product topical formulas to Antler Retail Inc.
Antler intends to launch a men’s line with these 8 licensed formulas for hair pomade, beard oil, shaving cream, deodorant and 4 essential oil colognes. The company has already started designing an advertising campaign targeting men.
Antler’s California subsidiary previously acquired licenses for 56 product formulas for the territory of the United States from Yield Growth. After developing testing and packaging plans with Yield Growth, Antler now wishes to expand its license for 8 of the products to worldwide distribution rights. For a fee of $800k payable to Yield Growth in stock of Antler, the license grants non-exclusive worldwide rights to 8 men’s products developed by Yield Growth. The formulas to these products include hemp seed oil, hemp root oil and other natural ingredients.
Yield Growth anticipates it will generate additional revenues through the license as the agreement contemplates that Yield Growth will provide packaging, marketing, manufacturing and distribution services to Antler for the men’s line. The agreement provides that at closing the license fee may be paid in stock, but other fees are to be paid in cash on a monthly basis.
Yield Growth has developed expertise in developing and launching cannabis brands such as its in house brands Urban Juve and Wright & Well. Yield Growth is building an international distribution platform for cannabis products which extends to the US, Europe and Asia with intentions to enter South America.
Antler is a related party to Yield Growth, as Krystal Pineo and Penny Green are both directors and significant shareholders of Yield Growth and Antler. The agreement requires closing of the transaction by August 31, 2019.
