The Company has achieved US$30+ million (unaudited) in sales so far this year and is anticipating further sales growth in the coming months.
“We wanted to provide investors with the opportunity to invest in a growing and dominant cannabis operation before an official IPO process,” said Bruce Linton, Executive Chairman of Gage Cannabis. “Michigan is one of the top cannabis markets in the U.S., and I am confident Gage is poised to continue building on its historical execution and fortifying its position as one of the top operators and brands in Michigan, as well as a name consumers look for across the United States”.
Linton is the former CEO, Chairman and Founder of Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX:WEED) (NYSE:CGC), which he transformed from a concept into one of the most recognizable and valuable cannabis companies in the world. Linton is a passionate entrepreneur and brings a wealth of experience and unparalleled expertise in a variety of industries, creating unprecedented long-term shareholder value. Linton was the first and lead investor in this Offering, further emphasizing his support of the Company.

This is a great first step in our journey to becoming a publicly-traded company and we’re excited to continue to build on our strong foundation while delivering long-term shareholder value.”
