Aphria Inc. issued the following statement in regards to Aleafia Health Inc.’s termination of the Company’s wholesale cannabis supply agreement with Emblem Corp.:
“We are disappointed that Aleafia has chosen to terminate its Agreement with Aphria Inc. The Company had every intention of fulfilling its obligations under the Agreement. As a large shareholder of Aleafia, Aphria made good faith efforts to ensure continuation of the Agreement understanding it was in the best interest of all parties involved. However, the termination of this legacy Agreement frees up significant supply allowing the Company to service its brands that are in high-demand across the country.”
The Parties are contractually obligated to negotiate for a period of 30-days following the receipt of a formal notice of termination. If the Parties fail to arrive at any agreement or settlement within the 30-days, and if Aleafia initiates a formal claim for damages, the Company intends to vigorously defend itself.
