Terra Tech Enters into Agreement to Acquire Remainder of Interest in Blüm Reno Dispensary

IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Terra Tech Corp. (TRTC) ("Terra Tech") or (the "Company"), a vertically integrated cannabis-focused agriculture company, today announced it has entered into an agreement to acquire the remainder of the interest in the Blüm Reno dispensary, located at 1085 S Virginia St Suite A, Reno, NV 89502. 

As a result of the agreement, Terra Tech Corp.’s ownership in the Blüm dispensary, including its cannabis licenses, will increase from 50% to 100%, and Terra Tech Corp.’s ownership in the building which houses the dispensary will increase from 50% to 100%. Closing of the agreement is subject to the approval of the Nevada Department of Taxation, which the Company expects to receive in approximately 60-90 days.

Chief Executive Officer, Derek Peterson, said, “This purchase allows us to have complete ownership and control of the Reno Blüm dispensary, which provides much-needed cannabis products to the local medical and adult-use markets, at a price that we believe accurately represents a fair value. It also settles the lawsuit with Heidi Loeb Hegerich and we are pleased to put this matter behind us and look to the future. We continue to execute against our growth strategy in Nevada, and have recently shipped our first products from our new Sparks, Nevada cultivation facility to our retail Blüm dispensaries across the state. These will be marketed to our customers and patients under our premium IVXX™ brand.”
