Maple Leaf Green World Inc. Announces Notice from the TSX Venture Exchange and Intention to Transfer Listing

MAPLE LEAF GREEN WORLD INC.
February 6, 2018

CALGARY, ALBERTA Maple Leaf Green World Inc. (“Maple Leaf” or the “Company”) (TSXV: MGW, OTCQB: MGWFF) announces that, further to the Company’s ongoing discussions with the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) and in connection with the TSXV Bulletin dated October 16, 2017 re: Business Activities Related to Marijuana in the United States (the “Exchange Bulletin”), the Company has received a notice from the TSXV (the “Notice”) as a result of the Company’s current business activities in Nevada. Pursuant to the Notice, the Company must provide the TSXV with satisfactory documentation that it is in compliance with the requirements set out in the Exchange Bulletin by February 26, 2018. To comply with Exchange requirements, the Company will be required to divest of its interests in the United States or transfer the listing of its common shares (“Common Shares”) in accordance with the policies of the TSXV. As the Company’s operations in Nevada have not advanced to the stage of cannabis cultivation or production at this time, the Company is of the view that it is currently in compliance with the Exchange Bulletin and has made a submission to the TSXV clarifying the state of its current operations in the United States.

The Company is of the view that its continued operations in the United States are integral to its business and the value that it expects to provide to its shareholders. Maple Leaf believes that it is in the best interests of its shareholders to voluntarily delist the Common Shares from the TSXV, instead of divesting Maple Leaf’s assets in the U.S, and concurrently list the Common Shares on another public stock exchange in Canada. The Company has made an initial application to list its Common Shares on a public stock exchange in Canada and is excited at the potential of listing the Common Shares on such exchange and the opportunities it provides to its investors, as Maple Leaf continues the ongoing development of its business operations.  The Company will provide further updates in future press releases surrounding the status and timing of the transfer of the listing of its Common Shares.
