NEWS: Plus Products Announces Transition to HERBL Distribution Solutions as its Primary California Distribution Partner, Along with the Termination of Distribution Relationship with Calyx Brands Inc.

Plus Products Inc. (CSE: PLUS) (OTCQX: PLPRF) (the “Company” or “PLUS”), a cannabis branded products company in the U.S., today announced the transition of its primary California distribution partner from Calyx Brands Inc. (“Calyx”) to HERBL Distribution Solutions (“HERBL”) for the Company’s best-selling cannabis products.

Highlights

  • PLUS products are currently available in 360 licensed retailers in California
  • HERBL distributes to more than 600 licensed retailers in California
  • PLUS has an internal sales team of fifteen individuals who have been working closely with HERBL and retailers to make the transition a success

“After an extensive review of the major California cannabis distributors, we determined that HERBL was best positioned to scale with PLUS and reliably deliver product to retailers at the lowest cost,” said Jake Heimark, Co-founder & CEO of PLUS. “One of our goals at PLUS is to put our products on every shelf at an affordable price, and we believe HERBL is the perfect partner to help us reach that goal. Their substantial market reach and world class management team give us confidence that they will help PLUS further solidify our position as the largest cannabis-infused gummies brand in California.1

HERBL is a leader in the California market with active distribution to over 600 licensed retailers across the state, 240 more locations than the 360 licensed retailers in which PLUS cannabis-infused edibles are available today.

PLUS has an internal sales team of fifteen individuals working directly with HERBL’s team to ensure a quick and efficient transition for the Company’s current retail partners, and to open new accounts moving forward.

PLUS, as a part of this transition, has entered into a settlement agreement with Calyx dated December 9, 2019, which addresses, among other things, the termination of the distribution arrangement between the two parties.  In accordance with the terms of the settlement agreement, the Company has arranged with HERBL to take responsibility for distributing the Company’s branded products inventory currently held by Calyx. Additionally, a qualified third party will assist in the collection of a portion of outstanding accounts receivable associated with the sales of PLUS branded products by Calyx. PLUS has also agreed to forbear any claims against Calyx and its parent company, Nutritional High, through June 5, 2020.
