Canadian Cannabis Corporation Announces Closing of Purchase of 300,000 Sq. Foot Brampton Facility

BRAMPTON, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/16/14 -- Canadian Cannabis Corporation ("CCC") is pleased to announce the purchase of its 300,000 square foot facility in Brampton, Ontario located at 98-102 Rutherford Road South.

The property was purchased for a total price of $13,885,000. In connection with the closing a mortgage in the amount of $9,400,000 was secured. The company is required to make monthly interest only payments, beginning August 15th 2014, in the amount of $78,333.33. The mortgage is a one year term mortgage at 10% per annum. Rental income for the property is $700,000 per year for the area of the facility not presently required by CCC for operations, offsetting mortgage costs. The Company invested $4,485,000 in the purchase of the building and believes that the asset represents significant value to shareholders with an enduring asset of highway access and airport proximity to Lester B. Pearson International, which will enhance the company's export capabilities.

"CCC believes this facility offers the ideal structure for a large-scale medical marihuana production plant. Among many other beneficial characteristics, the facility is close in proximity to Laboratory and Quality Assurance Labs and has direct access to an urban skilled workforce," said Benjamin Ward, President and CEO of Canadian Cannabis Corporation.

The company has received formal approval at the Municipal level for the purpose of Medical Marihuana Production from the City of Brampton.

The company took possession of the Brampton facility and commenced phase I of re-purposing to meet production needs. The re-purposing is required to bring the security up to the required Level 10 as dictated by Health and Welfare Canada. Stage 1 construction is intended to include all security and preparation work to have 120,000 sq. ft initially available for the cultivation of Medical Grade Marihuana.

The Brampton facility allows for a maximum 600,000 sq. ft in production space when fully built out through a two-tiered facility. Although the company does not currently intend to build out the entire facility, the company expects to revisit such plans if demand of medical marihuana justifies.

"CCC is currently in the advanced stages of the MMPR licensing process and we are continuing an active dialogue with Health Canada as we work toward the approvals on the application that we have submitted."

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
