Corporate Update: Vinergy Resources $VNNYF

A Cannabis Biotech Execution Story

In a move in furtherance of the company’s plan to develop products for testing and identifying cannabinoid isolates for targeted therapeutic purposes, Vinergy Resources (VIN.CN: CSE) (VNNYF: OTC) acquired a majority interest in a specialty development laboratory.

This morning, Vinergy announced that it signed a binding letter of intent to acquire 65% of Biolennia Laboratories. The lab operates out of a secure location in Toronto alongside Micrylium, which manufactures products under agencies like the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Health Canada (HC).

Under the terms of the agreement, once the agreement is signed Biolennia will receive $260,000 CAD and 150,000 shares of Vinergy. The acquisition is expected to close during the first quarter and this should serve as a catalyst to shares.

What Does Biolennia Laboratories Do?

Biolennia Laboratories currently provides testing, research and development and quality control services on behalf of Micrlylium. The lab specifically focuses on Health Canada approved disinfectants and consumer products.

Biolennia is applying for a Dealer’s License from Health Canada and the issuance of this license will be a significant achievement since the company would be allowed to process cannabis for research and development purposes. The lab will also provide a host of drug testing services to support MJ BioPharma.

Biolennia has a proven track record of success when it comes to testing products for agencies like the FDA and Health Canada. The lab’s expertise in validating and testing cannabis products consistent with the methods accepted by these agencies will add a lot of value to the team that Vinergy has in place.

An Agreement With More Upside

Concurrently with this announcement, Vinergy terminated its letter of intent announced on February 2 nd to acquire up to 51% of a European plant breeder. The target company of this terminated agreement had $14+ million in annual sales and adjusted EBITDA $2+ million last year.

Although this deal is off the table for now, we think it was a good decision as there are number of synergies between this deal and last week’s development. Last week, Vinergy reported a breakthrough in while working on its oral cannabinoid delivery strips and time-release capsule technology.

Management is very excited about this breakthrough as it could become the basis for new technology and possibly a new product category where water or saliva is the catalyst used to activate the carrier for delivery and absorption of CBD in to the body.  

The technology is called BURST due to the speed at which it can enhance the body’s absorption of various ingredients.  The BURST system is built on natural botanical polymers delivering specialty processed high purity cannabinoids.  

The patent pending technology allows for a more complete palatable drug delivery system that is effective and enhances the patient or user experience and can intensify flavors. When comparing the potential of this product while working with a lab as compared to a plant breeder, we see more upside working with the lab.

Outlook is Bright

Although we were favorable on the agreement with the European plant breeder, this development is significant and fits in well with the company’s business strategy. There is currently a large short position on VIN.CN and the combination of this announcement with the short position should cause the shares to spike significantly higher.

Vinergy has done a great job executing over the last few months and we believe the company is well positioned to capitalize on these developments. Continued execution will create significant value for shareholders and this is a stock that we will continue to monitor.

We highlighted Vinergy in late 2016 as a stock poised to rally and investors should have this one on their watch list. We encourage you to become a Mushroomstocks Premium Member to learn more about this company and your opportunity!
