Althea Group Holdings Ltd. completed its acquisition of Canadian cannabis products manufacturer Peak Processing Solutions for C$4.1 million in cash and 6,833,839 shares.

Under the deal, Australian medical cannabis supplier Althea issued 5,502,455 shares to Gregg Battersby, a former director of Peak, and 1,331,384 shares to eight employee shareholders of Peak.

Battersby and the employee shareholders are also eligible for a further 19,018,007 shares, subject to certain performance targets.
