Shares of Namaste Technologies Inc (OTCMKTS:NXTTF) have been trekking lower in a clear downward trend despite some pretty interesting bullish catalysts, which suggests some market discounting of an underlying process that continues to trouble major shareholders. But the table could turn as the catalysts mount. An interesting example of the type of shift that could spell support is the company’s recent announcement that it has entered into a share purchase agreement to acquire 49% of the issued and outstanding shares of Calgary, AB based Choklat Inc. for $1.5 million in cash consideration.
According to the release, “Choklat is a premium chocolate manufacturer with existing sales through its online eCommerce site and through a network of distributors across Canada. Choklat has recently entered into a supply relationship with Sobeys and already has product in 25 stores in Alberta with a goal to roll out in Western Canada and beyond in the coming months.”

As noted above, NXTTF just announced that it has entered into a share purchase agreement to acquire 49% of the issued and outstanding shares of Calgary, AB based Choklat Inc. for $1.5 million in cash consideration.
While this is a clear factor, it has been incorporated into a trading tape characterized by a pretty dominant offer, which hasn’t been the type of action NXTTF shareholders really want to see. In total, over the past five days, shares of the stock have dropped by roughly -29% on above average trading volume. All in all, not a particularly friendly tape, but one that may ultimately present some new opportunities.
Namaste Technologies Inc (OTCMKTS:NXTTF) pulled in sales of $1.9M in its last reported quarterly financials, representing top line growth of 173.1%.

This transaction provides the security of supply and manufacturing for our medicinal cannabis customers and provides capacity for the recreational market in the event proposed regulations are passed.”
