- VGW to produce minimum of 2.2 million vape pens over two-year period
- The introductory line of Made By BRNT-branded vape pens to contain Valens’ proprietary formulations
- The milestone agreement represents gross revenue potential for Valens of more than $50 million
In the largest publicly announced, multiyear, white-label agreement to date for a branded finished product in the Canadian cannabis industry, Valens GroWorks Corp. (TSX.V: VGW) (OTCQX: VGWCF) announced that it has partnered with BRNT Ltd. to launch a line of cannabis vape pens in Canada.
Under the terms of the agreement, Valens—a vertically integrated provider of industry-leading extraction products and services including a diverse suite of extraction methodologies, next-generation cannabinoid delivery formats, and an ISO 17025 accredited analytical lab—will work closely with BRNT to produce a minimum of 2.2 million vape pens over an initial two-year time period (http://nnw.fm/QAe1x). The extract formulations will be developed, crafted and tested by Valens, with Valens also overseeing the filing and distribution of the product. BRNT will facilitate the hardware design and development of the vaporizer as well as national marketing and sales efforts. The line of single-source, cannabis-extract vaporizers with artfully designed hardware will be branded by BRNT and be made available exclusively through the company’s introductory vaporizer line, Made By.
“As Valens begins official production of next generation products for Cannabis 2.0, we are excited to be collaborating with BRNT to bring to market a line of differentiated, high quality, concentrate vape products for Canadian consumers,” said Valens GroWorks CEO Tyler Robson. “BRNT has shown impressive sales growth and market understanding through its ancillary offerings. In pairing their retail and product knowledge with Valens’ processing and product development capabilities we believe this provides a solid foundation to provide a product with strong consumer appeal.”
The milestone agreement represents gross revenue potential to Valens of more than $50 million in the first two years, subject to final acceptance from provincial distributors at the proposed price per unit. While the initial agreement calls for Valens to produce at least 2.2 million vape pens in two years, it also includes two successive one-year renewal options. Valens anticipates initial shipment under the agreement to occur during the first fiscal quarter of 2020.
“Valens has demonstrated a commitment to cannabis extraction on a global scale that is driven by passion and quality,” said BRNT Group CEO Simon Grigenas. “It was a natural fit for BRNT to collaborate with Valens to bring the Made By vaporizers brand to life with a partner that can mirror our globally recognized signature design aesthetic and brand development capabilities. BRNT and Valens are setting a new industry standard by creating meaningful brands and products through a focused, profitable approach, as opposed to the traditional vertical integration seen today.”
