MMJ owns a portfolio of listed and unlisted companies along the cannabis value-chain.

MMJ Group Holdings Ltd - MMJ Group launches $5 million share purchase plan
Positively, eligible MMJ directors intend to participate in the SPP

MMJ Group Holdings Ltd (ASX:MMJ) has this morning revealed a share purchase plan (SPP) to raise up to $5 million through the issue of shares priced at 11 cents.

Eligible shareholders on the register as of yesterday (5:00pm AWST Thursday 13 February) will be able to subscribe for up to $30,000 worth of new shares.

The funds raised will be primarily applied towards investment in existing and new cannabis and hemp businesses, operating expenses and general working capital.

Notably, the SPP offer price of 11 cents represents a 51% discount to MMJ’s net tangible asset (NTA) value per share post-tax as at 31 January 2020.

Funding to take advantage of growing market

MMJ’s chairman Peter Wall said: “The SPP is expected to improve MMJ’s position to take advantage of the growing global cannabis and hemp market, with a particular focus on listed and unlisted Canadian cannabis businesses.

“It also increases our flexibility to make follow-on investments in our current portfolio companies and to manage the timing of exits for some of our existing investments.

“We believe that a SPP is the fairest and most efficient means of raising equity, where our eligible shareholders will be offered the first opportunity to invest additional funds in the company at a discount to the current share price.

“On behalf of the board, I’d like to thank our supportive shareholders.”

Recent sentiment has created opportunities

MMJ believes that the adverse market and industry sentiment created in the past six months surrounding cannabis companies has created opportunities to invest in listed and unlisted Canadian cannabis businesses at attractive valuations.

Funds raised from this SPP will provide MMJ with the flexibility to participate in investment opportunities as they arise.
