UPDATES FINANCING AND US MARKET AWARENESS PROGRAMS
Alliance Growers Corp. has provided an update on financing and awareness activities.
Alliance Growers (ACG.C) has received a proposal from a funding group based out of Germany offering to fund Alliance for up to EUR 10,000,000. The proposal includes exposing Alliance Growers to its Fundraising Network throughout Europe, Asia and North America. The group assists with structuring various financing initiatives with Institutional investors, and leading the negotiations to maximize the value of the financings.
The Company has been in discussions over the last few months seeking the best funding group to work with Alliance Growers in order to fund and list Class A preferred shares as a non-dilutive financing mechanism. Alliance Growers is setting up strategic relationships with groups like this so they are ready to facilitate significant equity funding at the appropriate valuation and the appropriate stock price.
The Company has commenced discussions with a firm out of New York that offers a low cost, high impact solution for Alliance Growers to get quoted in the US on either the OTCQB or OTCQX markets. This company works closely with various CSE listed issuers to open the door for US investors to be able to trade the Company's stock and to provide awareness to a market ten times the size of the Canadian market. This organization assists companies to achieve greater investor engagement and gain a diverse US shareholder base.
Commenting on the financing, Dennis Petke, Alliance Growers' President and CEO stated, "We continue to seek the best financing solutions that are non-dilutive, where possible, that fit the timing of our various projects. As well, management continues to work on closing private placements by getting the message directly to both investors and brokers. We are planning two roadshows over the coming two months featuring multiple investor presentations arranged by third parties, as well as those that are internally generated. We invite investors to watch for upcoming fundraising events, similar to the Calgary investor conference".
Dennis Petke further commented on the potential for a US listing, "It is well known that the SEC recognized markets (OTCQB and OTCQX) can assist Canadian listed companies in gaining far greater US investor interest, trading volume, to achieve a more accurate, fair valuation with greater liquidity. Getting quoted and/or listed in the US does not add a heavy burden to our reporting requirements, thus no significant incremental ongoing costs. Although Alliance Growers has responded to many queries from US investors, to date we have only been able to secure a handful of US shareholders. This is because most investors, brokers and advisors are either unwilling or unable to trade or recommend Canadian stock in the US for a variety of reasons, unless they are quoted on the OTCQB or OTCQX and other large exchanges. It is our objective to get our story out to as wide an audience as possible as quickly as possible, fund our projects in the most efficient manner possible, and build value for our shareholders".
