TORONTO, Oct. 10, 2018 — Quinsam Capital Corporation (CSE:QCA) (“Quinsam” or the “Company”) is pleased to update its investors on recent news relating to liquidity events by its investee companies.
Quinsam congratulates RMMI Corp. (“RMMI”) for their recent listing on the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE”) under the symbol RMMI. “The CSE listing for RMMI represents the culmination of considerable effort by the management and board of RMMI as it has advanced its Alberta facility. Quinsam initially invested in RMMI at $1 per share and is a significant investor in the company,” said Roger Dent, CEO of Quinsam.
Quinsam would also like to congratulate Biome Grow Inc. (CSE: BIO) on its start of trading yesterday. Quinsam invested $300,000 in this company at an effective price of $0.60 per share and carried the investment at $0.80 per share at the end of Q2/2018. The shares closed yesterday at $1.95. This company is developing cultivation facilities in Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Ontario.
Quinsam would also like to congratulate Next Green Wave Holdings Inc. which has announced that it will begin trading on the CSE today. Quinsam invested $525,000 in this company at $0.35 per unit (1 share + 1/2 warrant at $0.60). This company is developing cultivation facilities in California.
Acreage Holdings: Quinsam invested $992,000 in Acreage at a pre-money value of approximately US$500 million. Acreage is one of the largest US cannabis companies and has now commenced marketing of a $200 million going-public financing on the CSE. While pricing of the financing is still some weeks away, the initial marketing range is approximately 3x our cost. “In our opinion, this financing should be well received by the market,” said Roger Dent.
Quinsam continues to look forward to numerous other Q4 liquidity events.
