CAPE TOWN, SA / ACCESSWIRE / September 22, 2020 / WUHAN GENERAL GROUP, INC. (WUHN)
("Wuhan" or the "Company"), a bioceutical company focused on alternative plant-based cannabinoids and psilocybin medical research is delighted to share the following corporate updates:
The last step in completing the due diligence regarding the acquisition of Tsime Pharmaceuticals Inc. ("Tsime") was accomplished last week with the visit to the Tsime property in Lesotho. Based on our positive results, the Company is pleased to announce it is going forward with the acquisition of Tsime Pharmaceuticals and the plans to cultivate up to 3 hectares of medicinal-grade cannabis on the farm with a land area covering 23 hectares (57 acres). With its license, the Company will grow, extract and process medicinal cannabis on-site, a key element in driving research and the manufacturing of cannabidiol (CBD) by-products. The project's first crop is scheduled for Q2-Q3 2021, with projected annual revenue of USD 9.8 Million.
We are also very pleased to announce that Willem Jonker
, head of the cannabis operation Medigrow will be joining the Wuhan team as Chief Operating Officer
in the coming days. A future press release will be shared on the subject once effective.
As well, Bataung Likate
has been appointed as the onsite Director of Tsime Pharmaceuticals.
Batung Likate, Director of Tsime, said: “We at Tsime Pharmaceuticals, together with the Chief and the local community of which we form part, are excited that this project is coming to fruition. This area otherwise has few formal employment opportunities, so we welcome M2Bio Sciences with open arms.”
Information regarding the closing of the transaction will be announced in due course.
The total project requirement for the first year is USD 4.7 million consisting of USD 2.82 million in Capital Expenditures and Operating Costs of USD 1.88 million.
The Company is actively discussing with private and public financial organizations on the potential funding opportunities and financial instruments to be deployed to secure the necessary capital.
Some key milestones are the construction of the greenhouses (18 tunnels equivalent to 5,400 square metres), establishing Security Protocols and starting the first cultivation.
The company expects to have the first harvest 9 months from the day it breaks ground.
How profitable is a cannabis cultivation operation?
Based on revenue projections for the first 0.5-hectare facility, the net income before tax is USD 9.82 million. After deducting yearly operating expenses, a projected net profit of USD 6.37 million could be realized. The applicable tax rate in Lesotho is 10% for agriculture.
Projected net income after tax is $5.73 million per year.
The Company is currently in discussions with interested parties for the purchase of future cannabis production.
“I enjoyed our trip to Lesotho on both a personal and business level. Willem shared so much remarkable and indispensable knowledge and wisdom. We have such an unfair IP advantage in knowing what has worked and what hasn’t for those that ventured ahead of us. We thank the early players for laying the foundation. It is our turn to sow the seeds and reap the bountiful rewards for our shareholders.
“said Wuhan CEO, Jeff Robinson.
