  • Total unaudited sales as reported by the Company were C$1,349,545 in June 2017
  • Compared to C$1,108,034 in May 2017, a 21.8% increase.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 10, 2017 — Namaste Technologies Inc. (“Namaste” or the “Company”) (CSE:N) (FRANKFURT:M5BQ) (OTCMKTS:NXTTF) is pleased to announce that it has achieved record monthly sales and traffic for the month of June. The total unaudited sales as reported by the Company (including shipping revenues and after discounts and refunds) were C$1,349,545 in June 2017 compared to C$1,108,034 in May 2017, a 21.8% increase.

The month-on-month increase in revenue was achieved across the large network of sites operated by Namaste which all showed higher conversion rates. The increase in revenue is particularly pleasing as typically revenue is soft during the summer months. Namaste Vapes and Everyonedoesit showed good progress in conversion rates and average order value which were drivers of revenue growth. Australian Vaporizers benefited from an already high conversion rate which increased to 4.5% for the month.

The table below displays a revenue breakdown for Namaste’s various sales channels.

Namaste has implemented proprietary machine learning algorithms on several of its major sites that adjust website content and product listings ‘on-the-fly’ based on user behavior. These sites have seen substantial increases in conversion rates as a result and Namaste plans on launching the same technology throughout their platform.

At the end of June the Company granted 1,725,000 options to staff and consultants. The options will vest quarterly over a period of two years and are exercisable for five years at an exercise price of $0.25.

  • Signed a definitive agreement  with Cannmart In whereby Namaste will purchase all of the issued and outstanding shares in the capital of CannMart
  • In 2014, CannMart submitted its application to Health Canada to become a “sales only” licensed producer of medical cannabis

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(April 24, 2017) –

Namaste Technologies Inc. (“Namaste” or the “Company“) (CSE:N)(CSE:N.CN)(FRANKFURT:M5BQ)(OTCQB:NXTTF) is pleased to announce that it has signed a definitive agreement (the “Agreement“) with Cannmart Inc. (“CannMart“) whereby Namaste will purchase all of the issued and outstanding shares in the capital of CannMart, a late stage applicant under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (the “ACMPR“). In 2014, CannMart submitted its application to Health Canada to become a “sales only” licensed producer of medical cannabis (the “ACMPR Application“).

The acquisition of CannMart represents a strategic decision for Namaste to leverage its strength in e-commerce and logistics in becoming a leader in retail distribution of medical cannabis in Canada. The rationale for the acquisition includes but is not limited to:

  • Expansion of Namaste’s product offerings, with the ability to sell both vaporizers and consumables from one location. Namaste aims to be a one-stop-shop for medical cannabis consumers in Canada.
  • Namaste’s ability to market and brand medical cannabis products to its 50,000+ dataset of Canadian consumers.
  • Namaste launching a Canadian warehouse in the CannMart facility in order to process both vaporizer and medical cannabis shipments, medical cannabis packaging, filling for pod-based vaporizers, and distribution for other brands of medical cannabis products.
  • Namaste’s ability to provide same day delivery within the Greater Toronto Area and next day delivery within Canada.

CannMart’s ACMPR Application

CannMart’s ACMPR Application and proposed business model are unique in the industry, as CannMart has applied only to sell, and not produce, medical cannabis. Under this model and subject to obtaining a licence from Health Canada, CannMart would have the ability to purchase wholesale medical cannabis from other licensed producers and sell to individual patients in accordance with the ACMPR.

The ACMPR Application has completed the “security clearance” stage and is currently in the “review” stage of the licensing process. CannMart’s proposed facility is a 4,000 sq. ft. industrial building located in Etobicoke, Ontario (the “Facility“). Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company will assume all of the going forward liabilities and obligations of CannMart, including the remaining build-out costs needed to prepare the Facility for the final stages of the licensing process and the pre-licensing inspection.

Terms of the Agreement

The terms of the Agreement are as follows:

  • Valuation of CannMart at $3.55M CAD;
  • $50,000 CAD in cash to the vendors was paid on April 6, 2017;
  • $2,500,000 CAD worth of Namaste common shares will be issued to the vendors on closing; and
  • $1,000,000 CAD worth of Namaste common shares will be issued to the vendors upon certain milestones.

The common shares of Namaste issued in connection with any milestones will be issued at a price of $0.2884 per Namaste common share.

Closing of the transaction is anticipated to be on or about April 28, 2017.

In connection with the transaction, Clarus Securities Inc. provided advisory services to Namaste and received consideration of $10,000 in cash and will receive 1,040,222 common shares of Namaste upon satisfaction of the milestones outlined in the Agreement.

This acquisition will open the door for Namaste to use our expertise with e-commerce and online marketing in order to sell medical cannabis through our existing platform and to our Canadian customers. We see this as a great vertical for Namaste, not only to retail medical cannabis online, but to also utilize our strength in logistics and shipping to offer a one-stop-shop for all medical cannabis related products in Canada.
