Xtraction Services Holding Corp., (“Xtraction Services”, “XS” or the “Company“) (CSE:XS), a fast growing provider of equipment leasing solutions to owner/operators of cannabis and hemp companies in the United States, announced today that the Company has amended its existing Lease Agreement (“Agreement’), with Puritix, LLC (“Puritix”, managed by Holistic Health, operating out of Fort Wright, Kentucky, processors of hemp biomass to produce various forms of CBD oil). The amended Agreement provides Puritix with the same yield projections at a reduced installation cost and allows Xtraction Services to invoice four (4) months ahead of schedule due to equipment availability. This modified equipment requisition reduces upfront capital requirements and frees up funds for the Company to pursue other accretive opportunities.
Highlights of Amended Agreement:
- Revised lease terms to a fixed price per gram of crude oil as opposed to a price per gram of distillate (refined oil), reducing operational risk
- Invoicing commenced four (4) months earlier than the original Agreement, combined with ability to invoice for crude oil produced to date (approx. US$60,000 value)
The amended Agreement provides Puritix extraction, testing and pre/post processing equipment over a term of 30 months, in exchange for a fixed price per gram of crude oil, or US$50,000 per month, whichever is greater (altered from a royalty based on a price per gram of THC free distillate). In addition, Puritix has agreed to allow Xtraction Services to invoice for crude oil already produced to date (approximately US$60,000 value). Invoicing commenced this month, four (4) months earlier than originally anticipated.
David Kivitz, Chief Executive Officer of XS, commented, “The amended Agreement is a win-win for both parties. We are proud to work with a leading extraction company like Puritix and will continue to support their team so that they can meet their business objectives.”
“The cannabis and hemp industries are in constant flux and we are well-positioned to meet the unique and changing demands. As well, the modified equipment needs allowed us to free up capital to pursue additional opportunities. We look forward to providing periodic updates on our initiatives moving forward.”
Christopher D. Stock, Chief Executive Officer of Puritix, LLC commented, “The team at Xtraction Services has been very supportive throughout this process. The revised terms give us the flexibility to produce a full spectrum of products to better serve the needs of our customers. We will be working closely with the Xtraction Services team going forward and expect to be ramping up our production, moving from our current one shift per day on a four-day schedule, to a 24/7 schedule by the end of November.”
