VANCOUVER, B.C., CANADA (March 21, 2019) – Body and Mind Inc. (CSE: BAMM, OTC PINK: BMMJ) (the “Company” or “BaM”) a multi-state operator, is pleased to announce expansion into Arkansas with in-state partner, Comprehensive Care Group LLC (“CCG”). The companies will work together to develop a medical marijuana dispensary facility in West Memphis, Arkansas. Medical marijuana dispensaries in Arkansas are licensed for both retail sales and cultivation of up to 50 plants within the same facility.
Nevada Medical Group LLC (“NMG Nevada”) and DEP Nevada Inc. (“DEP Nevada”), wholly owned subsidiaries of the Company, recently entered into a management agreement and a convertible loan agreement, respectively, with CCG whereby the Company has agreed to provide CCG with:
- A management agreement whereby NMG Nevada will provide operations and management services, including management, staffing, operations, administration, oversight, and other related services. Under the management agreement, NMG Nevada will be paid a monthly management fee equal to a percentage of the monthly net profits of CCG, subject to conversion of the convertible loan as discussed below upon which the monthly management fee shall be USD$6,000 per month, unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing.
- A convertible loan of up to USD$1,250,000 from DEP Nevada to CCG with proceeds used to fund construction of the facility, working capital and initial operating expenses. The loan bears interest at a fixed rate of USD$6,000 per month until the parties mutually agree to increase the interest. Within one year of granting of a medical marijuana dispensary license or one year after entering into the convertible loan, DEP Nevada may elect to convert the loan into preferred units of CCG equal to 40% of all outstanding units of CCG, subject to approval of the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission.
Additionally, CCG has issued a convertible promissory note in favor of DEP Nevada which promises to pay DEP Nevada the principal sum of up to USD$1,250,000 or so much thereof is advanced under the terms of the convertible loan with interest on the balance of such principal sum from time to time outstanding.
