ICC plans to deploy Green Gene’s genetic strains at its operations in Colombia, Denmark, Poland, Greece, Portugal, South Africa and Lesotho. In addition, the company has a distribution network of 35,000 pharmacies in 16 countries.

The buyer said it expects the deal to help it draw revenue from licensing of premium genetic strains, wholesale seed sales, clone fulfillment services, custom breeding, tissue culture and strain patenting services.

“The acquisition of Green Gene broadens the product offering that ICC can provide to its clients and to its distribution network,” ICC CEO Eugene Beukman said in a press release statement.

Shares of ICC slipped 4.08$ to C$0.47 in Canada on Monday.

Last week, the company said it cleared an inspection of its products by Colombian agricultural authorities.
