VANCOUVER, BC, May 10, 2021 /CNW/ – PlantX Life Inc. (“PlantX” or the “Company”) (CSE: VEGA) (Frankfurt: WNT1) (OTCQB: PLTXF) is pleased to announce that the Company has closed on a previously announced transaction to acquire Little West LLC (“Little West”). The Company previously announced on April 30, 2021 that it had, through PlantX Lifestyle USA Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, entered into a membership interest purchase agreement dated April 29, 2021 to acquire all of the issued and outstanding limited liability membership interest of Little West (the “Acquisition”). The Acquisition closed at previously disclosed terms.
Little West will continue to be run and operated by its founders Cassandra Troy and Andrew Walker, Brad Neumann and their California-based team, while leveraging PlantX’s extensive e-commerce platform, technical business expertise and marketing resources in aims of promoting Little West products and accelerate the Company’s expansion across the U.S. and Canada. The Acquisition of Little West provides PlantX with expertise in the cold-pressed juice vertical which it is anticipated will enable the Company to further grow in the North American market.
“It is truly exciting to finalize our Acquisition and partnership with Little West” said Sean Dollinger, PlantX Founder. “We’ve already seen a lot of interest in the Little West cold-pressed juices since we announced our intention to acquire this amazing company, and we are very much looking forward to working together with Little West team and capitalize on our mutual strengths to enhance the Company’s growth moving forward.”
