Hugo Alves, President of Auxly commented: “I couldn’t be more excited to announce the closing of the Inverell transaction. Not only is Auxly acquiring an incredible project, but we are welcoming one of the world’s foremost experts in large scale outdoor cultivation and the extraction of high value molecules from plants into the Auxly family. I speak for myself and everyone at Auxly in saying that we are thrilled and honored to have Raul and the whole Inverell team as our friends and business partners. Inverell is a hugely important asset for Auxly and our strategic vision. Through Inverell, Auxly is perfectly poised to play a leading role in the global CBD economy and establish itself as a leading manufacturer of value-added cannabinoid-based products for domestic and international markets. Our ability to exercise strict QA/QC controls along every point of the supply chain from cultivation to extraction to product manufacturing, all within jurisdictions where cannabis is federally legal, ensures that we will be able to meet the quality assurance and supply chain demands of increasingly sophisticated and institutional purchasers. I love it when a plan starts to come together and the acquisition of Inverell is a big piece of our plans so today is a very exciting day for our company.”
