MONTREAL, CANADA–(Marketwired – Jan 13, 2015) – Affinor Growers (CSE:AFI)(1AF.F)(RSSFF) (“Affinor” or the “Corporation) announces they have completed the acquisition and ownership, development and commercialization rights of the farming technology “Method and Apparatus for Automated Horticulture and Agriculture” Patent from Vertical Designs Ltd (“VDL”).

VDL is a patented provider of safe, high quality agricultural and vertical farming technologies and will assign the patent to Affinor to produce a number of high quality agricultural products including herbs, lettuce, spinach, and plants that require pollination such as strawberries. Under the terms, Affinor becomes the patent holder and will issue to VDL in consideration five million common shares at a price of twenty cents per share, such shares to be issued within thirty days after the confirmation by the World Intellectual Property Organization and the regularity approval.

Sebastien Plouffe, President and CEO of Affinor, commented, “This patent creates unique growing conditions and microenvironments for proper tissue development resulting in optimum crops production, quality products and long shelf life. The technology increases the traditional yield per square foot from 10 to 15 times and decreases spoilage or scrap for many leafy green products. And, it eliminates the use of pesticides and other chemical inputs due to a controlled environment. We anticipate this acquisition will contribute meaningfully to our growing IP portfolio and towards our corporate mission to become a leading agricultural technology company focused on solving the world’s food issues.”

The patent process is a continuous cultivation from seed to harvest for perpetual production reducing watering times and amounts, which results in a year round production. The patent provides technological advancements in commercial agriculture with optimized and automated air flow, temperature and CO2 at every level, allowing plants to breathe properly which results in reduced growth times and proper tissue development. Also, the proprietary microenvironments powered by software helps to control cell elongation typically found in hydroponic greenhouse applications. This results in a more stable product and longer shelf life. The patent is ergonomically designed to reduce labor cost for pruning, trimming, transplanting, inspecting and harvesting.

Affinor Growers: Washington State Court Allows Herbal Analytics to Compete With Abattis and Phytalab

MONTREAL, CANADA–(Marketwired – Dec 30, 2014) – Affinor Growers (CSE:AFI)(1AF.F)(RSSFF) (“Affinor” or the “Corporation) wishes to advise its shareholders that a preliminary injunction was entered on December 23, 2014, by the Washington state court in King County against, among others, Herbal Analytics, LLC (HA Defendants). Notably, the preliminary injunction allows Herbal Analytics to compete with Phytalab.

The Court denied any request to impose a restriction on competition and the court refused to enjoin Herbal Analytics and it partners from competing with Abattis Bioceuticals or Phytalab.

Although the Court technically included Affinor Growers, LLC, and Nick Brusatore, in the preliminary injunction, the Court made no finding that either were involved, assisted, or encouraged anyone to breach a fiduciary duty; nor did the Court make findings that Affinor Growers, LLC or Brusatore had knowledge of, or involvement in, the receipt of Phytalab documents and information. Further, the Court noted it only had jurisdiction over the primary parties, and that Affinor Growers Inc. had not been served; the Court did not individually name Affinor Growers Inc. as an “injunction defendant”.

The injunction simply states:

  1. Injunction Defendants shall cease and desist from any and all use of Phytalab’s trade secrets and confidential information and documents obtained from Phytalab, including but not limited to, all materials contained in Phytalab’s 1-502 application which in turn includes but is not limited to SOPs and the Quality Assurance Plan.
  2. Injunction Defendants are restrained from copying, transferring, using or disclosing to any other person or entity any documentation taken from Phytalab and must either return it to Phytalab or preserve it intact. If the materials are not immediately returned, a log shall be provided that details what documentation is being retained.
  3. Injunction Defendants shall retain and preserve all existing documents and files, including electronic files and email messages, that mention, refer to, or are derived from Phytalab, Phytalab and Abattis’ customers, or Phytalab and Abattis’ prospective customers.
  4. The Court denies any request to impose a restriction on competition but does direct that Defendant Herbal Analytics shall keep a detailed, complete, and accurate accounting of its business operations.

The preliminary ruling is very early in the case, before Defendants have had the opportunity to conduct any discovery. The Court has not decided any issue on the merits; Defendants intend to vigorously defend against these claims and establish that the Plaintiffs’ claims are frivolous.

James Baxter, Herbal Analytics director of operations, stated: “Herbal Analytics was very pleased that the court refused to take any measures to prevent it from competing directly with Phytalab or Abattis.” Phytalab has contended that it developed trade secrets when some of Herbal Analytics employees worked for Phytalab, but Herbal Analytics has strongly contested these claim. Herbal Analytics has said that it plans to go forward with its business model under Washington’s legalized marijuana laws. Herbal Analytics has also stated that it is not using and has no plans to use information it obtained from Phytalab’s application with the state. “The court’s refusal to enjoin shows that the court recognizes our right to compete American free enterprise system,” explained Baxter.

Amendment of Acquisition Agreement of British Columbia Private Company

MONTREAL, CANADA–(Marketwired – Nov 20, 2014) – Affinor Growers (CSE:AFI) (RSSFF) (1AF.F) (“Affinor” or the “Corporation”) announces that it has amended its acquisition agreement previously announced on May 23, 2014.

On October 18, 2014, the Corporation and the shareholders of the acquired British Columbia private company (hereinafter “BC Ltd.”) agreed to amend their original share purchase agreement. The Corporation gives back to the BC Ltd. shareholders all the issued and outstanding BC Ltd. shares purchased by the Corporation pursuant to the original share exchange agreement, in consideration for which the BC Ltd. shareholders give back to the Corporation 2,500,000 common shares owned by Nick Brusatore a related person. In addition, the BC Ltd. shareholders have granted to the Corporation an irrevocable option to purchase all the issued and outstanding BC Ltd. shares which option may be exercised no later than October 18, 2017, or upon receipt by BC Ltd. of its Medical Marijuana growers license from Health Canada.

The officers and directors of the Corporation have taken this decision because of their incapability to open a bank account with a chartered bank for BC Ltd. This has caused a direct impact on the risk management.

BC Ltd’s application to obtain a Medical Marijuana growers license is at the security clearance stage. Once the security check is completed, the application will proceed to the in-depth review verification to ensure compliance with good production practices, record keeping and security measures.
