Cronos Group Inc (OTCMKTS:PRMCF) Enters Burgeoning Australian Cannabis Market

Cronos Group Inc (OTCMKTS:PRMCF) is resurging after some volatility that has hampered it over the last month. PRMCF took a sizeable bump up today after announcing operations in Australia and other parts of South Asia. The company will work in a joint capacity with New Southern Capital to deliver CBD oils and premium medical cannabis products to the region. Cronos Australia, as PRMCF is calling it, is launching with two licenses: a cultivation license and a research license.

“The launch of Cronos Australia as our newest international hub marks an important milestone for the Company.  Cronos is focused on providing pharmaceutical grade medicine to patients in need, and we are excited that our Australian team shares this vision and commitment,” says Mike Gorenstein, CEO of PRMCF.

Cronos Group Inc (OTCMKTS:PRMCF) trumpets itself as a principal investment firm operating in the Canadian cannabis space.

The firm seeks to invest in companies either licensed or actively seeking a license, to produce medical marijuana pursuant to Canada’s Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations. The firm typically invests in companies based in Canada.

The firm is primarily an equity investor, may also advance debt as appropriate. It seeks to make minority investments with appropriate governance and shareholder rights. The firm seeks board representation consistent with the size of the investment but does not need control. Cronos Group was incorporated in January, 2013 and is based in Toronto, Canada.

According to company materials, “Cronos Group is a geographically diversified and vertically integrated cannabis company that operates two wholly-owned Licensed Producers (“LPs”) regulated within Health Canada’s Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (the “ACMPR”) and holds a portfolio of minority investments in other Licensed Producers. The Company’s flagship LPs, Peace Naturals Project Inc. (Ontario) and Original BC Ltd. (British Columbia), are collectively situated on over 125 acres of agricultural, licensed land.

Previously, PRMCF put Peace Naturals on shelves in Germany and this move further underscores the company’s position to seek business opportunities abroad.
