CALGARY, ALBERTA – Maple Leaf Green World (MGW-V) (“Maple Leaf” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that the Company and BioNeva Innovations of Henderson LLC (“BioNeva”) have agreed to extend the term of their previously announced Letter of Intent (“LOI”) regarding the purchase of a Nevada cultivation permit (the “Permit”) from BioNeva to January 16, 2017. See the Company’s news release dated November 8, 2016.
The LOI extension is necessary to give Maple Leaf sufficient time to complete the purchase of a suitable site in Henderson, Nevada, which is required, under Nevada law, for the transfer of the Permit to the Company. To accelerate the transfer process, Maple Leaf has elected to acquire an existing warehouse property in Henderson (the “Target Site”) rather than construct a new building. The Company is currently preparing a formal offer to acquire the Target Site. If its offer is accepted, Maple Leaf will then submit an application to Henderson City Council for approval of the transfer of the Permit. Provided such approval is obtained, usually within 30 days and all other conditions to the transaction with BioNeva are satisfied, the Company or its nominee will become the legal owner of the Permit and renovation at the Target Site will commence immediately.
Currently, there are only about 100 cultivation permits which are operational in the State of Nevada. The Company understands that state authorities do not intend to issue additional cultivation permits until they are satisfied the cannabis market’s demand-supply balance has been tilted by strong demand. As a result, management of the Company believes its potential acquisition of the Permit will add significant shareholder value.
With regard to the recent trading activity in the Company’s shares, management confirms that it is not aware of any undisclosed developments that would account for such activity.
