LONDON, Ontario – August 7, 2019: Indiva Limited (the "Company" or "Indiva") (TSXV:NDVA) (OTCQX:NDVAF) and TerrAscend (CSE:TER) (OTCQX:TRSSF) are pleased to announce the signing of an agreement to partner on an extraction services program (the "Agreement"). Under the terms of the Agreement, Indiva will provide TerrAscend with extraction and refinement support at its state-of-the-art facility in London, Ontario. TerrAscend, a global provider of cannabis, serves patients and consumers in Canada, the United States and Europe through its portfolio of brands, products, and services. In addition to supporting fellow producers with their extraction needs, Indiva plans to release its own gel capsules and oils to the Canadian public upon receipt of its oil sales amendment from Health Canada.
Under the terms of the Agreement, TerrAscend will commit to deliver, on an annual basis, a minimum of 800 kg of dry flower to Indiva for extraction. Indiva will be responsible for extraction and refinement services employing its 70-tonne ethanol extraction system and will return the final product to TerrAscend in bulk formulated oil, or in distillate form.
"We are thrilled to partner with an exceptional company like TerrAscend" Niel Marotta, President and Chief Executive Officer of Indiva, said.
"This partnership further demonstrates our intention to focus on derivative products and highlights our expertise in this space. We expect to be known not only for our high-quality pre-rolls, capsules and edibles, but also for the support that we can provide to our fellow licensed producers in the extraction, manufacturing and refinement of cannabis products."
