The Company carries out its principal activities producing cannabis from its facilities in Ancaster, Ont., pursuant to the provisions of the ACMPR and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (Canada) and its regulations.
The company has achieved significant accomplishments in a very short span of time and is moving forward at a rapid pace on its aggressive, de-risked business plan and continues to expand all aspects of its business significantly. Most recently, on August 21st, the company announced it signed an agreement to acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of privately-held HemPoland for $7.75M cash and 1,968,323 restricted TGODF shares currently worth $7.75M, which will be escrowed for a term of three years from closing.
- Acquisition cost of US$7.75 million in cash and 1,968,323 restricted TGODF shares currently worth US$7.75 million (~CAD$20.4 million combined) with an additional US$10.3 million (CAD$13.5 million) cash investment for rapid European expansion
- Additional performance-based incentives of up to US$12 million (CAD$15.8 million) for delivery of US$32 million (CAD$42.1 millions) of EBITDA in fiscal 2021

- Premier selling CBD oil brand “Cannabigold,” a recognized leader in the EU and 32,000 kgs of dried flower production from 1,250 acres of cultivation
- Leading innovative organic brand with diverse, novel product offerings and unique IP
As per management, HemPoland is a key component to a number of strategic acquisitions and planned partnerships focused on expanding its global distribution network. This acquisition will significantly add to the Company’s top and bottom line. Gaining market share with CBD products now, in the EU, with over 700 locations allows TGODF to establish immediate brand awareness across all verticals including infused beverages. This is an accretive acquisition and gateway to Europe’s 750 million people accelerating the company’ plan of becoming the world’s largest organic cannabis brand.
Before this on August 15th, the company announced its financial and operational results for the second quarter of fiscal 2018, ended June 30th, 2018. The company reported that the overall construction in Ancaster, Ontario and Valleyfield, Quebec remains on schedule with cultivation expected to commence in the first half of 2019. As per management, Construction is on-going without any time or cost overruns across all jurisdictions and TGODF’ is aggressively building its medical and adult-use brands. The company is investing heavily in consumer research, R&D and simultaneously building both the capability and systems needed to scale as it prepares for the adult-use market rapidly.
From a liquidity and financial flexibility perspective, TGODF continues to maintain a strong balance sheet with cash and cash equivalents of $261,816,000 and continues to execute on management’s vision of becoming the largest organic cannabis brand in the world.
The company is focussed on making strategic additions across all divisions of the Company to execute on its expansion plans. TGODF’s business plan calls for operations in 12 countries on three continents by the end of 2018 with a focus on Europe and Latin America.
