August 15, 2019 – Vancouver, BC: The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTCQB:BOSQF) (Frankfurt:YG3) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a distribution agreement dated August 14, 2019 with Antler Retail Inc. for worldwide distribution rights to the Antler Real Men hemp product line.
Antler also closed its previously announced licensing agreement with Yield and completed payment of $800,000 to Yield Growth for a non exclusive perpetual license for the worldwide rights to 8 hemp product topical formulas created by Yield Growth.
Antler is in development to launch a men’s line with these 8 licensed hemp formulas for hair pomade, beard oil, shaving cream, deodorant and 4 premium essential oil colognes based on the Indian Royal Attar tradition utilizing scents like amber and tobacco for their masculine aroma profile. The Yield formulas that have been licensed to Antler include blends of saffron, sandalwood, pink lotus, and frankincense combined with resins from west coast spruce, cedar, fir, cypress, and black spruce. Inspired by the Ayurvedic tradition of sourcing ingredients locally these forest resin de-stressing scents induce a sense of familiarity and calming. Yield Growth will also act as the international distributor for these products.
“We have tremendous interest from companies around the world to distribute our Urban Juve line of hemp products,” says Penny Green, Yield Growth CEO. “We are excited to act as the international distributor for this exciting new men’s line and sell these products through our distribution network.”
Antler issued 4,000,000 shares at a deemed valid of $800,000 to Yield Growth as payment for the formula license. The licensing agreement provided that at closing the license fee may be paid in stock; however, other fees are to be paid in cash on a monthly basis. Fees for manufacturing, testing and marketing are still being negotiated but its anticipated that stability testing services will be provided through Yield to establish a 24 month shelf life and that these tests will begin within 30 days.
