FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – March 8th, 2018
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada – Namaste Technologies Inc. (“Namaste” or the “Company”) (CSE: N) (FRA: M5BQ) (OTCMKTS: NXTTF) is pleased to announce the signing of a Hardware Supply Letter of Intent (“LOI”) with Ample Organics Inc. (“Ample Organics”), whereby Namaste and Ample Organics will integrate Namaste’s vaporizer and accessory hardware with Ample Organics’ e-commerce platform. The intention of the LOI is to allow all of Ample Organics’ customers, including their extensive client list of ACMPR Licensed Producers to access Namaste’s full range of high-quality products. This engagement represents a unique opportunity for both Ample Organics and Namaste to leverage their technology platforms to provide added value and a new revenue stream for many of Canada’s largest ACMPR Licensed Producers.
Ample Organics is Canada’s leading seed-to-sale software platform. Under the terms of the LOI, Ample Organics and Namaste will collaborate and aim to provide ACMPR Licensed Producers and their patient’s seamless access to the widest range of high-quality vaporizer and accessory hardware in the cannabis industry.
Key Terms of the LOI
John X. Prentice, President and CEO of Ample Organics, comments, “Namaste has established a world leading portfolio of innovative and novel products. This partnership represents an incredible opportunity to provide additional value to our Licensed Producer clients and their patients by integrating Namaste’s products directly into the e-commerce platform used by over 200,000 patients across Canada.
Sean Dollinger, President and CEO of Namaste comments, “We are very pleased to be partnering with Ample Organics, who we believe is Canada’s largest and most innovative and trusted seed-to-sale software platform. With access to 80% of Canada’s medical cannabis patients and the country’s largest dataset, Ample Organics provides Namaste with an incredible opportunity to offer our high-quality vaporizers and accessories to Licensed Producers across the country, and for Ample Organics to provide even more value for their clients. In addition to partnering with Ample Organics on this exciting project, we are also working closely with Ample Organics’ team as it relates to our late-stage ACMPR medical cannabis “sales-only” license under our wholly owned subsidiary, Cannmart Inc., and have also identified additional opportunities for future collaborations that could be mutually beneficial for both parties. We are very excited to be working the Ample Organics and look forward to following through on this LOI with a definitive agreement.”
