On July 22, 2019 GTEC issued a news release regarding its plans to acquire a Kelowna cultivation facility from Canopy Growth Corporation (“Canopy Growth”) (TSX-V:WEED) (NYSE:CGC). This facility is purpose-built to produce premium cannabis, near completion, and will have estimated annual output of 4,000 KG when complete. Please refer to the original news release for further information regarding the transaction.
GTEC and Canopy Growth have entered into an Amending Agreement that extends the Purchaser’s Condition Waiver Date to September 16, 2019. This extension provides GTEC with additional time to pursue satisfactory financing options in order to complete the transaction.

If the Company is unable to obtain financing that is satisfactory to its Board of Directors; then it will not proceed with the transaction and be entitled to a full refund of its $250,000 deposit, without any further liabilities, penalties or obligations.
