Update on Agreements with Canopy Growth and Canopy Rivers Regarding Eureka 93 Inc.’s Cannabis Business in Canada
Ottawa, Ontario, April 26, 2019 – As previously disclosed on November 22, 2017, LiveWell Canada Inc. (CSE: LVWL), recently renamed Eureka 93 Inc. (“Eureka93”), entered into an arrangement with Canopy Growth Corporation (“Canopy”) (TSX: WEED) (NYSE: CGC) and Canopy Rivers Corporation (“Rivers”) (TSXV: RIV) consisting of three agreements (the “Agreements”): an Investment Agreement, a Royalty Agreement and an Offtake Agreement (which agreements were amended on April 2, 2018).
On April 3, 2019, Eureka93 received notice from Canopy and Rivers alleging, among other things, that Eureka93 had breached a number of covenants in favour of Canopy and Rivers under the Agreements, including an allegation that Eureka93 failed to provide notice to Canopy of the proposed merger of LiveWell Canada Inc., Vitality CBD Natural Health Inc. and Mercal Capital Corporation. Canopy and Rivers have taken the position that they are terminating the Agreements.
It is Eureka93’s position that Canopy and Rivers have missed a key milestone in two of the Agreements around obtaining the ACMPR license at both the Artiva location and LiveWell Québec location. Management believes there is no factual basis for the position taken by Canopy and Rivers, that their claims are tactical, and that Canopy and Rivers are in breach of all of the Agreements for, among other things, failing in their obligation to assist Artiva and Eureka93 in obtaining the ACMPR license, entitling Eureka93 and Artiva to terminate the Agreements. Management strongly believes the allegations and claims put forward by Canopy and Rivers are frivolous, and disputes the positions taken by Canopy and Rivers with respect to termination of the Agreements. The Company will vigorously pursue its rights through the dispute resolution process set out in the Agreements.
