VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sunniva Inc. (“Sunniva”, the “Company”) (CSE:SNN) (OTC Pink Sheets:SNNVF) announces that on September 7, 2022, the Company’s subsidiary, CP Logistics LLC (“CPL”) received a interim ruling from JAMS Arbitration regarding the arbitration CPL commenced against the current owner and landlord of the California glasshouse, Bobs LLC (“Bobs”), in regards to CPL’s rights as tenant under an October 20, 2017 Conditional Build to Suit Lease (“Lease”) and a March 2018 Subordinated Non-Disturbance and Attornment Agreement (the “Arbitration”). The Tribunal issued an Interim Award denying the relief requested by CPL, finding CPL had breached the Lease, and thus was not entitled to specific performance. The Tribunal further granted, in part, Bobs’ counterclaim for money damages and found Bobs was entitled to an award in the approximate amount of US $8.6 million and Bobs’ attorneys fees. The precise amount of damages and fees awarded are subject to further proceedings that will be the subject of a Final Award. CPL is exploring its options. No decision has been made at this time on future steps.
