NewLeaf Brands Signs Binding LOI to Acquire ReLyfe Brand, LLC

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NewLeaf Brands Inc. (CSE:NLB) (NLBIF) (FSE:0NF) (“NewLeaf Brands” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding letter of intent (the “LOI”) with ReLyfe Brand, LLC (“ReLyfe”). Under the terms of the LOI, the Company will acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of ReLyfe (the “Acquisition”). In consideration for the Acquisition, the Company will pay to Relyfe an aggregate amount of $3,000,000 USD in the form of common shares in the capital of the Company.  The share price is to be set on the closing price as of the date of signing of the LOI. The Acquisition is expected to close within 60-90 days of submission. Closing is subject to definitive documentation and applicable regulatory approvals.

ReLyfe is a health-focused gel capsule CBD company manufactured and based out of Colorado, USA. ReLyfe was founded to provide high quality, simple to take, effective and non-habit forming healthy alternative to traditional medication on the market today.  ReLyfe’s THC FREE CBD gel capsules are changing the way many consumers view hemp-derived CBD because the gel capsules provide a safe, easy, and discrete alternative to traditional ways that CBD is enters your system.  ReLyfe offers 3 different sized product offerings: a 2-day starter pack, a 7-day week pack, and a 30-day monthly bottle.  ReLyfe’s products are currently available in stores both in the US and internationally.

“As I’ve stated before, we have been actively looking for the best products and companies to add under our umbrella of companies,” said Josh Bartch, CEO of NewLeaf Brands.  “This potential purchase of ReLyfe further solidifies our plan to accomplish that moving forward,” Josh continued.  “We have looked at a number of companies that manufacture or offer a pill product of some sort; none of them hold a candle to the quality of ReLyfe’s product.  Based on our extensive research, a pill form of CBD is one of the top selling products in the industry as it stands, we expect this to only continue.  As we continue to expand both our current distribution channels through We Are Kured LLC and Fresh Water, LLC, we are able to feed our newly added high quality products into each and every line of distribution.  We intend on updating our loyal shareholders on other milestones the Company has reached over recent months as well as what to look for in the future. Needless to say we are very excited,” Josh concluded.
