Management Commentary

Jeff Fallows, the President, said:

  • "Over the course of 2020, Valens has created a platform that is not only highly adaptable to changing market conditions, but also easily transportable into new markets.
  • Moving into the fiscal year 2021, we have already executed step one of our strategic plan for the year with the announcement of our agreement to acquire LYF Food Technologies Inc. (which is expected to close on or around March 1, 2021) and are focused on quickly integrating and realizing on the incredible opportunity we see in adding their edibles platform to our capabilities.
  • With our recent bought deal financing, we are also well-positioned to aggressively pursue available and future growth opportunities, including potential acquisitions.
  • We are now more excited than ever about the future of Valens and the potential for us to create shareholder value in 2021 and beyond."
