About New Age Farm

Washington State
Through its Washington State subsidiary, New Age Farm owns two properties, one located in Sumas, WA, and the other in Oroville, WA, where it offers fully built out turnkey service operations to licensed I-502 tenant-growers who will lease the facilities for production and / or processing. With three leases already in place, operations in Washington State have begun and will expand further as the Company completes its build outs. In compliance with state regulatory requirements, New Age Farm’s facilities feature 24 hour security that enhances the safety and security of the community, our tenant-growers and their operations. All New Age Farm’s tenant-growers hold either Tier 2 or Tier 3 licenses allowing them to produce and / or process marijuana for sale at wholesale to marijuana processor licensees and to other marijuana producer licensees. A Tier 3 license allows for between ten thousand square feet and thirty thousand square feet of dedicated plant canopy while Tier 2 licensees can have up to ten thousand square feet of dedicated plant canopy. Revenue is generated on a base lease rate and the level of service that the tenant-grower requires for its production and / or its processing needs.

About the Washington I-502 Marijuana Market
In November 2012, the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (“WSLCB”) passed Initiative 502 (“I-502”) pursuant to a vote by the people of the State of Washington. I-502 authorized the WSLCB to regulate and tax recreational marijuana products for persons over twenty-one years of age and thereby created a new industry for the growing, processing and selling of Washington State-regulated recreational marijuana products. A recent WSLCB commissioned report by the Rand organization suggests that there are currently up to 650,000 recreational marijuana users in Washington State, worth approximately $1.25 - $1.5 Billion USD in annual sales.

Through its wholly-owned subsidiary, NHS Industries Ltd. (“NHS”), New Age owns a five and a half acre greenhouse facility in the lower mainland of BC with a 48,000 square foot greenhouse facility, capable of growing 2.4 million 4” potted plants annually.

The facility is located minutes from three major Canada – USA border crossings and direct routes to the lower mainland west and to all points east and west along 16th Ave to Hwy 99 and to Hwy 1 make its location in South Langley an ideal hub. NHS intends to become a beta site for sustainable growing capabilities as well as minimizing all carbon footprints with regard to all its on-site operations. This facility will meet a growing demand in the Metro Vancouver and Fraser Valley areas to help smaller growers become more efficient, more productive, implement value added product lines, and reduce waste.
