May 22, 2019 – Toronto, Ontario – Matica Enterprises Inc. (MMJ – CSE) (39N – Frankfurt) (MMJFF – OTC) (“Matica” or the “Company”) is taking the first steps in entering the Canadian adult-use cannabis edibles market. Matica has purchased one hundred per cent (100%) interest in both Trichome Treats Inc. and 10406619 Canada Inc. (together as “Trichome”). Matica, together with Licence Holder, RoyalMax Biotechnology Canada Inc. (“RoyalMax”), will work with Trichome and their award winning chocolatiers to produce a full range of adult-use cannabis infused products. Core Offerings will include cannabis edibles, beverages and infused derivatives, in anticipation of expected legalisation of edibles in October of this year. Matica’s initial strategic product development will utilise Trichome’s award winning recipes to focus on the chocolate and confectionary market.
“We hope that Trichome’s award winning recipes, experience and trademarks will give Matica a brilliant entry into the edibles market. The combination of RoyalMax, Yunify and now Trichome gives Matica a true and diversified platform to provide a wide range of delivery system choices for our future clientele. We will be able to provide not just high quality flower but, also the value added products that cannabis consumers demand. Our acquisition of Trichome is the latest in our strategic partnerships that Matica is developing to create growth and opportunities for our shareholders,” says Boris Ziger, CEO, Matica.
Matica has purchased Trichome, with all its recipes, know-how and trademarks. The key personnel at Trichome will work with Matica and RoyalMax to establish an adult-use cannabis division in anticipation of edibles legalisation. The transaction entered into is an all stock transaction for the amount of $500,000 at a deemed price of $0.115. Matica will issue 4,347,826 shares in four tranches based on milestones.
Trevor Hands of Trichome states, “While Matica and RoyalMax will supply the active ingredients, we at Trichome will create the flavours, textures and forms that edibles consumers want. It is up to us to create the overall experience with the right dosing and entourage effect to give adult-users the experience they expect. A premium quality offering will be our goal.”
