DENVER, Aug. 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- General Cannabis Corp (OTCQB:CANN), the comprehensive national resource to the regulated cannabis industry, today announced the acquisition of Mile High Protection Services LLC (“Mile High”).

Mile High has a diversified client roster, providing security services to hospitality companies, such as hotels, and to licensed cannabis retailers and cultivators in Colorado. During the seven months ended July 31, 2017, Mile High had revenues of approximately $570,000. The purchase price consists of the issuance of 224,359 shares of CANN common stock under the asset purchase agreement. The purchase price is subject to adjustment if less than 90% of certain Mile High customer contracts are assigned to General Cannabis. Tim Moore, the owner of Mile High, will become an employee of General Cannabis.

Robert Frichtel, CEO of General Cannabis, stated, “Mile High will complement our current security business, Iron Protection Group. It expands our footprint within the Colorado cannabis security market, as well as providing the opportunity to expand our entire security business into the hospitality and other industries. The combination brings natural synergies across hiring, management and operating expenses.”

Tim Moore, CEO of Mile High, said, “I’m excited to join General Cannabis. This provides the opportunity to continue Mile High’s success by leveraging the General Cannabis network and support to continue providing excellent service to clients.
