Vancouver, B.C., Sept. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vancouver, BC, September 20, 2019 - INVICTUS MD STRATEGIES CORP. ("Invictus" or the "Company") (TSXV: GENE; OTCQX: IVITF; FRA: 8IS1) announces that, the Company has agreed to sell the 82.5% issued and outstanding shares (the “Future Harvest Shares”) of Future Harvest Development Ltd. (“Future Harvest”) which are held by the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary Prestige Worldwide Holdings Inc. (“Prestige”) to SL 152 Ventures Ltd. (“SL 152”), a company owned by Mr. Byron Sheppard, a Director, President and CEO of Future Harvest, and whose company holds the remaining 17.5% of Future Harvest.

As consideration for the Future Harvest Shares and an outstanding shareholder loan in the amount of $445,000 (the “Shareholders Loan”) which is owed by Future Harvest to Prestige, SL 152 will pay the purchase price of $1,425,000 (the “Purchase Price”) as follows: (i) $250,000 already paid in two installments on September 6, 2019 and September 9, 2019; (ii) payment of $750,000 at closing; and (iii) a promissory note with a maturity date that is one year from the date of closing in the amount of $425,000 (the “Promissory Note”).  The payment obligations evidenced by the Promissory Note will be secured against the assets of SL 152 and Future Harvest pursuant to a general security agreement in favor of Prestige.

Mr. Trevor Dixon, President and CEO of the Company said, “The sale of Future Harvest is the next step in the reorganization of Invictus.  Our focus continues to be increasing production and reducing the overhead cost of goods sold by Invictus in the cannabis market to increase shareholder value.”

Mr. Sheppard is a director and the President and Chief Executive Officer of Future Harvest and, as a result, the Transaction is a “related party transaction” under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Projection of Minority Securityholders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The directors of the Company determined that the Transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements under MI 61-101 in reliance on the exemptions set forth in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 and, in connection therewith, have determined that neither the fair market value of the Future Harvest Shares nor the consideration to be received, insofar as it relates to the related party, exceeds 25% of the Company's market capitalization. Closing of the Transaction remains subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance.
