PAPUAN PRECIOUS METALS COMPLETES AGREEMENT REGARDING ACQUISITION OF COLORADO DISPENSARY
PAPUAN PRECIOUS METALS CORP. (the “Company”). Further to the Company’s news release dated April 29, 2014, the Company has signed a binding Letter Agreement to finance the acquisition of a Medical Marijuana dispensary (the “Dispensary”) in the state of Colorado. The acquisition is an arm’s length transaction and the consideration for the acquisition is all cash. Closing of the acquisition is subject to the completion of formal documentation and various regulatory approvals at the state and local level.
The Dispensary currently occupies approximately 6,000 square feet of warehouse type space and the assets consist of grow equipment, security systems and other lease-hold improvements. The Dispensary has been in operation for approximately four years and intends to expand its operation with the financial assistance to be provided by the Company.
The Company will retain its mineral resource prospects in Papuan New Guinea and is planning to obtain shareholder approval in September to a plan of arrangement to spin-out the Company’s assets into two separate entities. The acquisition spin-out will be subject to the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange and will require sponsorship or a waiver of sponsorship in accordance with policy 5.2.
The Company’s news release of April 29, 2014 lists numerous risk factors including the requirement for regulatory review in the State of Colorado. In addition, the spin-out acquisition requires shareholder and Exchange approval.
