"The world’s second-largest independent tobacco leaf dealer has been busy buying stakes in companies and forming joint ventures in emerging markets. The strategy is to sprinkle its expertise in agronomy over these businesses while expanding into such areas as liquids for vaping and Canadian cannabis."

Global Specialty Products (GSP) Milestones Highlights in the industrial hemp, e-liquids and the legal Canadian cannabis business as of quarter ended September 30, 2018:
Industrial Hemp – Pyxus’ industrial hemp joint venture, Criticality LLC, (Criticality) continues to advance in the production of cannabidiol hemp oil (CBD) and related consumer products. The Company is receiving hemp and will be processing at its new facility in Wilson, NC, in December. In addition to producing bulk CBD products for industrial, B2B customers, Criticality will also manufacture and distribute a line of consumer products under the proprietary Korent brand. The effects of Hurricane Florence resulted in facility construction delays but had little impact on the current hemp crop. In spite of weather issues, Criticality maintains a strong focus on quality of product and optimal CBD concentration levels.
E-liquids – The continuous growth of our West Coast e-liquids businesses required an expansion of space from its 16,000 sq. ft. facility to a new 45,000 sq. ft. facility. The location enhances synergies and increases efficiencies for our Nicotine River, Humble Juice Company and our Zip Fulfillment operations.
Legal Cannabis – On October 17, 2018, the effective date for legalization of adult recreational cannabis use in Canada, Pyxus’ indirect Canadian subsidiary FIGR recorded the first-ever legal recreational cannabis sale on Prince Edward Island (P.E.I.). Additionally, FIGR was the only company to have oil available in P.E.I. and one of two companies to have oil in Nova Scotia on opening day. FIGR East (licensed under the name Canada’s Island Garden) received its Oil Production and Sales License on August 31, 2018, and is currently one of only 29 firms to have received an Oil Production and Sales License from Health Canada. FIGR products are now available for legal recreational purchase by adult consumers at all PEIMC retailers across P.E.I. and, with strong initial sell through at retail. For the first two weeks of sales, FIGR has attained 13% of the legal adult-use recreational cannabis market in P.E.I., and is growing market share rapidly in Nova Scotia. Also, following the announcement that the indirect Canadian subsidiary FIGR Norfolk (Goldleaf Pharm Inc.) received its cultivation license from Health Canada on September 28, 2018, the operation has begun cultivation at its Simcoe, Ontario, facility.
