Vancouver, British Columbia – January 18, 2018 – Clean Seed Capital Group Ltd. (“CSX” or the “Company”) (TSXV: CSX), announces that it has received a purchase order with a retail list value of $9 million for its CX-6 SMART Seeder™ and SMART Cart™ from Rocky Mountain Equipment (“Rocky Mountain” or “RME”) (TSX: RME) for the upcoming seeding seasons. The purchase order is the result of the Company and RME’s joint demonstration program during 2017 across Western Canada. This order springboards the Company into full commercialization while providing a strong baseline allowing Clean Seed to pursue new market opportunities throughout the upcoming seeding season.
The Company is continuing to progress its sales and marketing program by working alongside with RME to present at trade shows and host on farm demonstrations of the CX-6 SMART Seeder™ across Western Canada. As a result, RME will have the option to increase the number of units within the purchase order based on the demand for the CX-6 SMART Seeder™ and may further adjust the number of units based on the feedback received from our mutual customers. With 35 retail locations throughout the Canadian Prairies, RME is Canada’s largest agriculture equipment dealer.
“We would like to express our appreciation to Rocky Mountain, its customers and its management for their continued support of Clean Seed and the CX-6 SMART Seeder™. Rocky Mountain, our flagship distributor, has played an important role in our evolution and the commercialization of the CX-6 SMART Seeder™. We have had a successful year partnering with RME to demonstrate our product in Western Canada with some of their most influential customers. This purchase order represents continued progress with RME and their customers in our commercialization activities. We proudly welcome this opportunity to increase our customer adoption of the CX-6 SMART Seeder™ with Rocky Mountain” said Colin Rush, Chief Operating Officer of Clean Seed.
