"We continue a strategy to become a significant player in the bourgeoning medical marijuana industry, both through our Health Canada application as well as through potential acquisitions in the United States," notes Scott Boyes, CEO.
The Company is continuing with its efforts to complete the acquisition announced in its press release on January 25, 2016 and while the successful completion of the transaction remains possible, significant obstacles remain that could delay or prevent a successful closing, including the finalization of adequate funding on terms and conditions satisfactory to BCC and the negotiation of a Purchase Agreement and other related documentation agreeable to both the Sellers and BCC.
About The Canadian Bioceutical Corporation
BCC, formerly Allegiance Equity Corporation, is an Ontario corporation that, for over two decades has been developing unique standardized mass-market nutraceutical products for the treatment of common ailments where present pharmaceutical treatments and over-the-counter products fail to meet the needs of patients. BCC has targeted markets having clearly identified product deficiencies and dissatisfied consumers afflicted with a variety of medical conditions. BCC obtains regulatory approval and patents for these unique compounds and formulations and may produce and distribute or license its products for royalty revenues.
BCC's principal brands are CinG-X™, Reliéva™, and Psorberine™ and FertaMax™. Additionally BCC, through its wholly-owned subsidiary BioCannabis Products Ltd. and, subsequent to receiving its MMPR license from Health Canada and as part of its planned expansion into the U.S. medical marijuana sector, intends to develop and market a series of new cannabis-based branded medicinal products to address this rapidly-evolving market.
Investors should be aware that companies cannot legally conduct a medical marijuana business in Canada without a license from Health Canada and that there is significant time and cost required to obtain such a license. As a publicly-traded company publicizing its intention to enter the medical marijuana industry, BCC urges potential investors in any company in this sector, to become familiar with the required resources and the related risks, costs implications and time required before a company will be able to begin licensed operations. There is no assurance that any company announcing its intent to enter the medical marijuana industry will be successful in obtaining a license or in creating shareholder value.
