IM Cannabis has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire MYM Nutraceuticals and its licensed producer subsidiary Highland Grow. The Transaction reinforces the Company's strategy as a leading global premium cannabis producer and purveyor. Following completion of the Transaction, expected to occur before the end of the second half of 2021, IMC will continue to operate under the IM Cannabis Corp. name with its common shares trading on the NASDAQ Capital Market and Canadian Securities Exchange under the ticker symbol "IMCC".
"Acquiring MYM is consistent with IMC's focus on premium and super premium segments of the cannabis market for consumers and patients in all markets. The Transaction also demonstrates our disciplined approach to acquiring accretive companies that create financial and operational synergies and result in additional opportunities to export premium cannabis products to Israel and Germany," said Oren Shuster, CEO, IMC. "With coast-to-coast distribution, including a strong leadership position in Eastern Canada, Highland Grow will further enhance our distribution capabilities and fast-track our entrance into new markets."
Michael Wiener, CEO of MYM, who upon closing will join IMC's North American business said, "IMC has built a solid foundation in Israel, Germany and Canada and offers unique opportunities to further grow its position as a leader in the cultivation and distribution of premium and super premium craft cannabis. Our team couldn't be more optimistic about joining the IMC team."
Under the terms of the Transaction, the shareholders of MYM will receive 0.022 common shares of IMC for each common share of MYM (the "Consideration"). Based on the 20-day volume-weighted average price ("VWAP") of IMC common shares prior to this announcement, the implied MYM share price of $0.219 pursuant to the exchange ratio implies a 17.9% premium over the same period. Upon the completion of the Transaction, MYM shareholders will own approximately 14.5% of IMC.
