$TCAN Provides Facility Acquisition Clarifying Information

Vancouver, British Columbia–(March 26, 2019) – TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE:TCAN) (FSE: TH8) (“TransCanna” or “the Company”) provides the following update further to its press release dated March 25, 2019. The Company retained the services of GreenGrowth CPA , an independent third-party chartered professional accounting firm (the “Firm”) ‘s located in Los Angeles, CA specializing in legalized cannabis. Green Growth was engaged by the Company to determine the enterprise value of the proposed business to be conducted by the Company on the property, which constitutes and fully integrated cannabis operation with divisions for transportation & distribution, extraction, manufacturing and packaging, nursery and a growing. The Firm concluded with a valuation range of US$50 million – $75 million, as at January 31, 2019 using two different valuation methods to reach their conclusion. The operations were valued on a going concern basis.

The two different valuation methods used by the firm included the discounted cash flow method and revenue multiples.

In utilizing the discounted cash flow method, the Firm considered a number of scenarios with sensitive selective key drivers of value including market share, number of products to be launched and timing for approval of city and state licenses. Under the discounted cash flow method, a discount rate of 31.86% was applied based on the capital asset pricing mode and reviewed against published studies of required rates of return for early stage companies.

In utilizing the revenue multiples method, the Firm observed multiples of broadly similar listed businesses, and the revenue multiples implied by the Firm’s valuation were in the range of 3.1X to 36.9X. The Firm reviewed listed companies operating in both the United States in Canada to support the multiples implied.

A significant component of the valuation is based on the assumption of the Company being able to reach high growth rates and capture market share in a timely manner. A failure of the Company to do so would have a material negative impact on the indicative value range. The Firm reviewed varying scenarios to capture uncertainties relating to same as well as varying scenarios of the Company successfully launching differing numbers of products as the facility to reach the ranges provided The valuation also dependent on the Company obtaining all appropriate city and state licenses to operate the facility in a timely manner. The valuation report cautions that the Company must be reaching expected revenue targets in order to reach the valuation ranges.

The assumptions utilized in the valuation have not been tested by the Firm, and they have not audited or reviewed the complication of the cash flow forecasts based on assumptions, nor have they conducted detailed analysis of the industry. Sources of information for the business valuation include financial models provided by the Company, management presentations, other company business and financials, the Company’s website, publicly available information on comparable companies published by Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters Financial Markets and available on SEDAR, other publicly available information and press releases. The business valuation also compared 26 publicly traded companies in the industry.

The valuation does not constitute an appraisal of the value of the property and equipment on the forming the facility. A separate real estate appraisal performed by Valbridge Property Advisors was reviewed by the Firm which appraised the property at US$16.3 million including equipment.

The Firm was paid a flat fee by the Company to complete the valuation which was not dependent on any specified outcome.

A US$250,000 non-refundable deposit to secure the property, and the Company will pay an US$8 million down payment from the proceeds of the Company’s over-subscribed brokered private placement once closed (see news releases dated February 20, 2019 and March 14, 2019). The seller of the building has agreed to a carry back note of US$6.750 million at 7% p.a. interest only for up to thirteen months, with an initial maturity date of October 15, 2019, subject to a six-month extension.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 26, 2019 — EnWave Corporation (TSX-V:ENW | FSE:E4U) (“EnWave”, or the “Company”) reported today that it has signed an equipment purchase agreement with The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (“TGOD”) to provide TGOD with three additional large-scale 120 kW Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) machines equipped with Optional Support Equipment and Robotic Arms (the “Agreement”). TGOD has purchased the additional three REV™ processing lines to expand its drying capacity of premium, certified organic cannabis in Canada. The addition of three 120kW REV™ machines will increase its total royalty-bearing cannabis processing capacity to a combined total of 420kW of REV™ machinery. The Company previously announced on January 3, 2019 that EnWave, TGOD and Tilray, Inc. had entered into a sublicense agreement in Canada granting TGOD non-exclusive rights to use EnWave’s technology for processing cannabis.

The Agreement further validates the benefits of REV™ technology as a turnkey solution for rapidly drying cannabis and hemp at low-temperatures to provide a high-quality cannabis product. The Agreement also further expands the use of EnWave’s REV™ technology within the rapidly growing global medicinal and recreational cannabis market. EnWave’s strategy is to commercialize its proprietary REV™ technology throughout the global cannabis sector under its licensing and royalty business model.

About The Green Organic Dutchman

The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX:TGOD) is a publicly traded, premium global organic cannabis company, with operations focused on medical cannabis markets in Canada, Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America, as well as the Canadian adult-use market.

About EnWave

EnWave Corporation, a Vancouver-based advanced technology company, has developed Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) – an innovative, proprietary method for the precise dehydration of organic materials. EnWave has further developed patent-pending methods for uniformly drying and decontaminating cannabis through the use of REV™ technology, shortening the time from harvest to marketable cannabis products.

REV™ technology’s commercial viability has been demonstrated and is growing rapidly across several market verticals in the food, and pharmaceutical sectors including legal cannabis. EnWave’s strategy is to sign royalty-bearing commercial licenses with industry leaders in multiple verticals for the use of REV™ technology. The company has signed over twenty royalty-bearing licenses to date, opening up nine distinct market sectors for commercialization of new and innovative products.

  2. powderREV® which is used for the bulk dehydration of food cultures, probiotics and fine biochemicals such as enzymes below the freezing point, and
  3. quantaREV® which is used for continuous, high-volume low-temperature drying.

$RIV $RIV.V $CNPOF Licensed by Health Canada, Triggering Long-Term Cash Flow Stream

TORONTO, March 25, 2019 — Canopy Rivers Inc. (“Canopy Rivers” or the “Company”) (TSXV: RIV) congratulates Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED) (NYSE: CGC) (“Canopy Growth”) and its portfolio company, Spot Therapeutics Inc. (“Spot”), on receiving a cultivation license from Health Canada for its Fredericton-based production and distribution facility. The newly licensed facility will operate under the flagship Tweed banner and is another important pillar in the Canopy family of companies’ commitment to establishing a local presence, engaging local trades, and creating economic opportunities within the provinces and communities the companies serve.

In 2017, Canopy Growth solidified its expansion strategy in Atlantic Canada when it acquired Spot and made significant local funding commitments in collaboration with Canopy Rivers, ultimately resulting in Canopy Growth being rewarded with one of the first provincial supply contracts in the cannabis industry, pursuant to a landmark MOU with the government of New Brunswick.

Canopy Rivers purchased the production facility at that time and entered into a long-term lease with Canopy Growth with respect to the facility, and also provided a significant capital commitment for the development of the New Brunswick-based project via a repayable debenture. The receipt of Spot’s cultivation license represents a triggering event under the debenture and initiates a long-term cash flow stream that is anticipated to be approximately $2.85 million per year, with a 25-year term. Commencement of the cash flow stream is expected to begin in September 2019.

“The long-term income stream from Spot, combined with our existing royalty portfolio, will further stabilize Canopy Rivers’ operating cash flow profile and provide us with additional financial resources to deploy as we continue to make investments in industry verticals we believe offer long-term strategic value for our portfolio partners and shareholders,” said Eddie Lucarelli, CFO of Canopy Rivers.

For more information regarding the Company’s investment in Spot, please refer to the joint management information circular of Canopy Rivers Corporation and the Company dated August 8, 2018, filed with Canadian securities regulators and available on the Company’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

About Canopy Rivers:

Canopy Rivers is a unique investment and operating platform structured to pursue investment opportunities in the emerging global cannabis sector.

Canopy Rivers has developed an investment ecosystem of complementary cannabis operating companies that represent various segments of the value chain across the emerging cannabis sector. As the portfolio continues to develop, constituents will be provided with opportunities to work with Canopy Growth and collaborate among themselves, which Canopy Rivers believes will maximize value for its shareholders and foster an environment of innovation, synergy and value creation for the entire ecosystem.

$NETE Featured in NetworkNewsAudio Publication on Mobile Payments Solutions

NEW YORK, March 22, 2019 — via NetworkNewsAudio – Net Element (NASDAQ: NETE) announces the availability of a NetworkNewsAudio publication titled, “Payment Processing Companies Grow Through Applied Innovation.”

The result has been a staggering rise in the value of some older payment technology firms but also the emergence of upstart contenders for the payment processing crown. By covering a range of electronic payments, these newcomers can quickly carve out important niches for themselves. For example, Net Element’s mobile payments solution effectively turns mobile phones into point-of-sale devices through Unified mPOS, its Unified Payments subsidiary. The company also covers point-of-sale systems through subsidiaries such as Aptito and Restoactive, online payments through PayOnline, and end-to-end solutions through Tot Group, allowing it to profit from all areas of electronic payments.

The business side of payments isn’t the only piece of the process that has become fractured — the customer base has also been affected. Both individual customers and business customers seek solutions better tailored to their specific needs and desires, and the more agile companies are happy to help. Net Element has shown how this can work by catering to specific industries.

About Net Element

Net Element, Inc. (NASDAQ: NETE) operates a payments-as-a-service transactional and value-added services platform for small to medium enterprise (“SME”) in the U.S. and selected emerging markets. In the U.S., it aims to grow transactional revenue by innovating SME productivity services using blockchain technology solutions and Aptito, the company’s cloud based, restaurant and retail point-of-sale solution. Internationally, Net Element’s strategy is to leverage its omni-channel platform to deliver flexible offerings to emerging markets with diverse banking, regulatory and demographic conditions. Net Element was ranked as one of the fastest growing companies in North America on Deloitte’s 2017 Technology Fast 500. In 2017, Net Element was recognized by South Florida Business Journal’s as one of 2016’s fastest growing technology companies. Further information is available at www.NetElement.com.
