Diego Pellicer Plans to Become a Fully Integrated Cannabis Company

Diego Pellicer Plans to Become a Fully Integrated Cannabis Company

The company has announced several letters of intent to purchase retail, manufacturing and cultivation assets in Colorado.

October 3, 2019

Colorado Gov. Jared Polis signed H.B. 19-1090 into law this past summer, opening the door for outside investment and ownership opportunities in the state’s cannabis market, and Diego Pellicer is in turn launching an M&A strategy to take its business to the next level.

The company, which primarily functions as a cannabis brand and development company, has announced letters of intent to purchase a series of yet-to-be-named assets in Denver: a 3,300-square-foot retail store, a 2,287-square-foot cannabis-infused product manufacturing facility and two cultivation facilities with a total of just under 30,000 square feet of grow space.

“We have a series of assets that we are pursuing currently, both the ones we’ve announced and ones that are still in the pipeline,” Diego Pellicer CEO Ron Throgmartin told Cannabis Business Times. “We’ve been patiently waiting for the Colorado market to open up business to publicly traded companies, which we are on the OTCQB. We’ve had very close ties in the marijuana industry … in Colorado but we’ve never, until the recent passage of H.B. 1090, had the opportunity to directly profit from the sale of marijuana, and this is a major shift for Diego Pellicer.”

DENVER (Sept. 25, 2019) – Diego Pellicer Worldwide, Inc. (OTCQB: DPWW), the premium marijuana brand and development company, today announced that it has executed a letter of intent to purchase a second cannabis cultivation facility in Denver. The fully upgraded, 16,279 square-foot cultivation facility produces approximately 2,650 pounds of medical and recreational cannabis per year.

“We have been aggressively implementing our new business model which includes direct ownership in cannabis operations. Diego Pellicer Worldwide has announced letters of intent to purchase a retail location, processing facility, a cultivation facility and now, this second cultivation facility,” said Ron Throgmartin, chief executive officer, Diego Pellicer Worldwide, Inc. “With this second facility, Diego Pellicer Worldwide will have more than 29,000 square feet of space producing more than 4,500 pounds of cannabis each year. We look forward to working with the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division to garner approval for Diego Pellicer Worldwide to become a fully licensed cannabis company.”

The letter of intent for the first cannabis cultivation facility in Denver was announced on Sept. 10, 2019. That modern, 13,000 square-foot cultivation facility produces approximately 2,000 pounds of cannabis per year.

The non-binding letter of intent is subject to compliance with the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division and House Bill 19-1090. The letter of intent will be followed by a contract once rulemaking for Colorado House Bill 19-1090 has concluded and the Marijuana Enforcement Division has issued regulations guiding the process for public companies and out-of-state investors to apply for cannabis licensing ownership. The completed regulations and application process are expected in November 2019 after the final public comment hearing is held on Oct. 8.
