Flowr Corp. (formerly Terrace Inc.)


In December 2020, Terrace Inc., a Canadian cannabis entity in which the Company had an ownership interest of 8.95% (“Terrace”), was acquired by Flowr Corp. (TSX.V: FLWR; OTC: FLWPF), a Toronto-headquartered cannabis company with operations in Canada, Europe, and Australia (“Flowr”). Under the terms of the deal, each shareholder of Terrace received 0.4973 of a share in Flowr for each Terrace share held.


This investment is carried at fair value. The increase in fair value of approximately $48,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2022, and the decrease in fair value of approximately $45,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2021, were reflected in the Gain (Loss) On Change In Fair Value Of Investment on the respective statement of operations.


Green Growth Group Inc.


In January 2022, the Company made a good faith deposit of $100,000 in connection with the acquisition of Green Growth Group, Inc. as previously discussed in Note 3 – Acquisitions.




In January 2021, the Company and MembersRSVP LLC, an entity that develops cannabis-specific software (“MRSVP”), in which the Company owned a 23.0% membership interest, entered into an agreement whereby the Company returned membership interests comprising 11% ownership in MRSVP in exchange for a release from all further obligation by the Company to make future investments, payments, and certain other non-monetary consideration.


In addition to the reduction of the Company’s ownership interest to 12.0%, the Company relinquished its right to appoint a member to the board of MRSVP. In light of the Company no longer having the ability to exercise significant influence over MRSVP, the Company discontinued accounting for this investment under the equity method as of January 1, 2021.


In September 2021, MRSVP sold substantially all of its assets pursuant to an asset purchase agreement. As a result of this agreement, the Company received cash proceeds of $1,475,000, representing the Company’s pro rata share of the cash consideration received by MRSVP at the closing of the transaction. The cash proceeds reduced the Company’s MRSVP investment balance to zero and resulted in a gain of approximately $309,000.


As an ongoing member of MRSVP, the Company was entitled to its pro rata share of any additional consideration received by MRSVP pursuant to the asset purchase agreement, which may include securities or other forms of non-cash or in-kind consideration and holdback amounts, if and when it is received and distributed by MRSVP. In February 2022, the Company received 121,968 shares of common stock of WM Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: MAPS), a technology and software infrastructure provider to the cannabis industry, representing the Company’s pro rata share of the additional consideration received by MRSVP pursuant to the asset purchase agreement. The fair value of these shares at March 31, 2022 of approximately $954,000 was reflected in current Investments on the balance sheet, and the corresponding gain comprised the balance of Other Investment Income on the statement of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2022.
