February 5, 2018: Santa Monica, California and Toronto, Ontario – The Tinley Beverage Company Inc. (the “Company” or “Tinley“) is pleased to announce that its intended Phase I cannabis production facility has completed its municipal cannabis inspection for cannabis manufacturing. The Company is also providing an update on its progress since its January 22 corporate update.
Tinley ’27 Cannabis Drinks Launch
The facility in Riverside Country, California is in receipt of a conditional use permit from for cannabis manufacturing and cultivation. It has now completed an inspection for cannabis production by the municipality’s City Planning Commission. The facility has also completed an inspection by the fire department for updated manufacturing equipment and is expecting inspections by the local health and police departments over the next two weeks. Upon successful completion of these remaining inspections, and receipt of final permits, Tinley intends to consummate the agreement with the facility that it has agreed to in principle, as previously disclosed, and subject to entering into the definitive agreement the Company would commence immediate batching and filling. The Company continues to expect the initial batches to take 2-3 weeks to complete upon receipt of such permits. Initial products include the Tinley Margarita and the Tinley ’27 Coconut Rum.
Updated Hemplify Products
The Company has completed approximately 20% of the planned production run of its updated Hemplify products, and the Company expects to complete the remaining production this coming week. As previously announced, the Company has launched a new lemon-lime flavor and an updated version of its berry flavor. The tropical flavor remains unchanged. All three flavors will have updated packaging which reflects the shift in distribution from head and smoke shops to premium health and natural grocery stores. It will also display the “Tinley Tonics” brand. This branding strategy is expected to drive sales of the company’s Tinley ’27 cannabis drinks by creating brand recognition of the Tinley brand in both mainstream, premium store chains as well as in leading dispensaries.
After a normal course QA hold following production, the Company will deploy its sales and merchandising personnel to replace existing inventory on shelves in the 100+ stores where Hemplify is currently available. The Company’s primary distributor has also placed a purchase order for stock in additional stores. Once all 100+ stores are stocked, the Company expects to resume its in-store demo program as well as its on premises and social media marketing, supported by an updated e-commerce store. 2
