Affinor Growers Arranges First Debt Financing with Vancity for Facilities

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - March 1, 2016) - Affinor Growers (CSE:AFI)(OTCQB:RSSFF)(FRANKFURT:1AF) ("Affinor" or the "Corporation), a diversified agriculture and biotechnology company with proprietary vertical farming systems, is pleased to announce that it has arranged a credit financing with Vancouver City Savings Credit Union ("Vancity") in Vancouver, B.C., to help build and install Affinor's Vertical Farming technology in British Columbia.

The financing funds will be used as part of the funding to begin commercialization of the technology for various food products allowing Affinor to showcase the technology, generate revenue, continue to sell licences, and strategically partner with large corporations for technology transfer to service the growing demand of food production.

Jarrett Malnarick, President & CEO commented that "By having Vancity as a financial partner, it helps to demonstrate that Affinor's technology and models are credible and ready to emerge as the leader in vertical farming. This is also a first step financing which is small but intended to establish a long term banking relationship with Vancity so that future, larger debt financings will be more available to Affinor."

The Vancity facility is for a term loan of $86,000 and an operating line of credit of $25,000. These funds will be used for approximately 20% of the funding of the facility to be built at the greenhouse operated by Affinor at the University of the Fraser Valley. The remaining funding will come from certain license fees expected to be collected shortly, potential additional private financings, and cash on hand. Affinor is excited to begin construction of this operating facility, the first of its kind in British Columbia.
