Well, that was fast. . .

GTEC Holdings Ltd (TSX-V: GTEC) just announced that they were acquired (you can read our latest piece covering GTEC if you haven’t yet here)

Invictus MD Strategies Corp. (TSX-V:GENE) will acquire GTEC Holdings for $100 million in an all-share transaction. Meaning GTEC shareholders will get their shares replaced with a number of GENE shares instead.

GTEC shares popped on the news – but there is still an arbitrage opportunity.

The company has 88.6 million shares outstanding and a current share price of C$0.86. This gives GTEC a market cap of C$76.2 million, still leaving a 30% upside.

Regardless, we will be holding onto our shares of GENE – which is now Western Canada’s largest indoor vertically integrated cannabis companies.

Highlights of the newly formed company include: 400,000 square feet of indoor cultivation space that spans across British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario. A genetic portfolio of over 80 strains. 30-plus retail stores. Two purpose-built state-of-the-art extraction labs. An analytical testing lab.

And – most importantly – one of the best management teams in the marijuana space.

This deal is going through – we may look to take advantage of the cheap shares to build our position in GTEC – and subsequently in GENE.
