EnWave Corporation (TSX-V:ENW | FSE:E4U) (“EnWave”, or the “Company”) reported today that it has signed an equipment purchase agreement with The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (“TGOD”) to provide TGOD with three additional large-scale 120 kW Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) machines equipped with Optional Support Equipment and Robotic Arms (the “Agreement”) . TGOD has purchased the additional three REV™ processing lines to expand its drying capacity of premium, certified organic cannabis in Canada. The addition of three 120kW REV™ machines will increase its total royalty-bearing cannabis processing capacity to a combined total of 420kW of REV™ machinery. The Company previously announced on January 3, 2019 that EnWave, TGOD and Tilray, Inc. had entered into a sublicense agreement in Canada granting TGOD non-exclusive rights to use EnWave’s technology for processing cannabis.
The Agreement further validates the benefits of REV™ technology as a turnkey solution for rapidly drying cannabis and hemp at low-temperatures to provide a high-quality cannabis product. The Agreement also further expands the use of EnWave’s REV™ technology within the rapidly growing global medicinal and recreational cannabis market. EnWave’s strategy is to commercialize its proprietary REV™ technology throughout the global cannabis sector under its licensing and royalty business model.

EnWave Corporation, a Vancouver-based advanced technology company, has developed Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) – an innovative, proprietary method for the precise dehydration of organic materials. REV™ technology’s commercial viability has been demonstrated and is growing rapidly across several market verticals in the food, legal cannabis and pharmaceutical sectors. EnWave’s strategy is to sign royalty-bearing commercial licenses with industry leaders in multiple verticals for the use of REV™ technology. The company has signed over twenty royalty-bearing licenses to date, opening up eight distinct market sectors for commercialization of new and innovative products. In addition to these licenses, EnWave has formed a Limited Liability Partnership, NutraDried LLP, to develop, manufacture, market and sell all-natural cheese snack products in the United States under the Moon Cheese® brand.
EnWave has introduced REV™ as the new dehydration standard in the food and biological material sectors: faster and cheaper than freeze drying, with better end product quality than air drying or spray drying. EnWave currently has three commercial REV™ platforms:
1. nutraREV® which is used in the food industry to dry food products quickly and at low-cost, while maintaining high levels of nutrition, taste, texture and colour;
2. powderREV® which is used for the bulk dehydration of food cultures, probiotics and fine biochemicals such as enzymes below the freezing point, and
3. quantaREV® which is used for continuous, high-volume low-temperature drying.
An additional platform, freezeREV®, is being developed as a new method to stabilize and dehydrate biopharmaceuticals such as vaccines and antibodies. More information about EnWave is available at www.enwave.net.
