CALGARY, Alberta, April 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Maple Leaf Green World Inc. (“Maple Leaf” or the “Company”) (NEO: MGW, OTCQX: MGWFF) is pleased to announce it has executed a listing agreement with Cornerstone Company, Nevada U.S.A. (“Cornerstone”), whereby Cornerstone has agreed to act as the Company’s listing agent in its proposed sale of 3.89 acres of land in Henderson, Nevada (the “Real Estate Sale”) for an asking price of US$1,895,000, as recommended by Cornerstone. Maple Leaf intends to use the proceeds obtained from this sale for a potential acquisition of a licensed cultivator in Clark County, which the Company is currently in negotiations with (the “Potential Acquisition”). The Real Estate Sale and the Potential Acquisition are each subject to applicable approvals, including regulatory, corporate and stock exchange approvals.
“We are excited about this opportunity to complete the sale of our current real estate in Nevada at a potentially higher market value than the land was originally acquired for. We also feel the locations of the two licensed cultivators who we are in negotiations with will provide a better political environment and cost saving for the Company’s long term growth strategy in Nevada, provided that we are able to negotiate a transaction in the best interests of Maple Leaf with one of these cultivators,” said Raymond Lai, President and C.E.O. of Maple Leaf.
