CALGARY, AB, May 2, 2022 /CNW/ - Top Strike Resources Corp. d.b.a. "Vencanna Ventures" (the "Corporation" or "Vencanna") (CSE:VENI; OTCQB: TPPRF) Vencanna has been halted by the Canadian Stock Exchange ("CSE") pursuant to previously announced signing of the definitive agreement with Cannavative Group LLC (the "Transaction"). The Transaction constitutes a "Fundamental Change" pursuant to the policies of the CSE, and the securities of Vencanna shall remain halted until the acceptance of the CSE and the approval of the shareholders of Vencanna regarding the Transaction. Vencanna intends to seek approval of the Transaction by way of written resolution from shareholders holding not less than 50% plus one Share. It is anticipated that the Transaction will be completed the summer of 2022 at which time the halt will be lifted.
On September 24, 2018, the Corporation announced the completion of a recapitalization financing, the appointment of a new management team and board of directors and commencement of trading on the CSE. The transactions have transitioned the Corporation from an oil and gas issuer to a merchant capital firm, rebranded as "Vencanna Ventures". The recapitalized Corporation aimed to be a go-to capital provider for early-stage global cannabis initiatives with an emphasis on strong management operating in state compliant jurisdictions with barriers to entry. The Corporation looked to provide investors with a diversified, high-growth, cannabis investment strategy through strategic investments focused throughout the value chain (cultivation, processing and distribution, and including ancillary businesses). In addition, the Corporation works alongside community leaders and social equity-owned organizations to develop grassroot partnership initiatives. These initiatives include joint submissions of cannabis business applications to be considered for jurisdiction compliant cannabis licenses.
Completion of the Transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including, but not limited to, the execution of the Definitive Agreement, acceptance of the CSE and shareholder approval. The Transaction cannot close until the required CSE acceptance and shareholder approval is obtained. There can be no assurance that the Transaction will be completed as proposed or at all.
Investors are cautioned that, except as disclosed in the management information circular or filing statement to be prepared in connection with the Transaction, any information released or received with respect to the Transaction may not be accurate or complete and should not be relied upon. Trading in the securities of Vencanna should be considered highly speculative.
