Canopy Growth’s Bedrocan Canada unit is taking Bedrocan International to arbitration for contractual dispute.
Bedrocan Canada commences arbitration proceedings under licensing and distribution agreement with Bedrocan International

Impact of Dispute on Canopy Growth and its Customers to be Negligible

SMITHS FALLS, ON, July 14, 2017 /CNW/ – Bedrocan Canada Inc. (“Bedrocan Canada”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Canopy Growth Corporation (“Canopy Growth” or the “Company”) (TSX: WEED) (OTC: TWMJF) has commenced arbitration proceedings against Bedrocan International BV (“Bedrocan International” or the “Licensor”) seeking performance of Bedrocan International’s contractual obligations under the licensing and distribution agreement between the parties (the “LDA”).

Bedrocan Canada asserts the Licensor has withdrawn and/or withheld services, designs, and support contrary to the Licensor’s contractual obligations. Because of this, and due to the fact that Bedrocan International procedures cannot be altered independently of the Licensor, Bedrocan Canada is now seeking redress through the process set out in the LDA.

Canopy Growth, then operating as Tweed Marijuana Inc., completed its acquisition of Bedrocan Canada in August 2015. The acquisition was made in order to diversify the growing platform and brand identities held by the Company. Since this time, Canopy Growth has added a substantial number of brands and growing capacity to its platform. Through this process of expansion, Bedrocan Canada operations have diminished as a percentage of total capacity and brand equity within the Canopy Growth family of companies.

Canopy Growth has established itself as a global leader in cannabis production, research, and physician education. We will continue our aggressive expansion efforts based on the operational knowhow developed at the Tweed, Tweed Farms, and Mettrum facilities. Seeking redress through an arbitration process is necessary to ensure that the Bedrocan Canada asset is maximized for shareholders and operating at maximum efficiency for the good of patients.

Bruce Linton, Chairman and CEO

In spite of the Licensor’s inaction, Canopy Growth has consistently met its contractual obligations as a licensee. The licensed facility operating as Bedrocan Canada remains and will remain an operating asset of Canopy Growth.

The Company is hopeful that with the assistance of arbitration Bedrocan International will comply with its contractual obligations to support its intellectual property with the hope of achieving a greater level of efficiency, reliability and standardization that have become the benchmark of Canopy Growth operations.
