"Pineapple Express is a premier delivery company when it comes to cannabis in Canada, and we look forward to working closely with Randy and his team to continue to grow the business," said Meni Morim, interim CEO at Namaste.

"Having Pineapple Express as part of our family is an efficient way to get medicinal cannabis to customers in the Greater Toronto Area and across Canada as quickly and efficiently as possible. We remain focused on execution of our 2019 strategy and are pleased to have seen this project through," he added.

Last summer, Namaste unveiled a subscription agreement to acquire 15% of Toronto-based Pineapple for $1 million, consisting of $850,000 in cash and $150,000 in Namaste shares.

In December, it said it had struck a purchase agreement with Pineapple Express shareholders to acquire a further 34%, and issued them with shares worth around $3.06 million, based on the closing price of Namaste shares on the TSX Venture Exchange on December 14 last year.

Right to buy more

Namaste has the right to buy a further 10% of Pineapple Express shares for $1.2 million within 14 months from the closing of the subscription agreement.

In connection with the deal, Darren Gill, chief strategy officer of Namaste will be appointed a director of Pineapple Express.
