Imperial Ginseng Products Ltd. Announces New Planting Decision and Retirement of Director
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Imperial Ginseng Products Ltd. (TSXV: IGP) (the “Company”) has determined that it is in the best interest of the Company and its stakeholders to cease the planting of any ginseng acres for the upcoming summer season. The Company has also determined that some or all of the summer 2019 planting of 66 acres may be harvested prematurely. These decisions were based on a number of factors, including the current diplomatic difficulties between Canada and China and the effects this has had, and is expected to continue to have, on the ginseng market and prices. Other obstacles, such as a labour shortage and a recent severe frost, also contributed to the Company’s decisions. The Company remains solvent at this time and will be assessing its options going forward.
The Company also announces that, following a long and productive period of service, Mr. James Chang has decided to retire from the Board of Directors for personal reasons. Mr. Chang will continue with his role of marketing and selling the Company’s ginseng root. “On behalf of myself and the rest of the Board, I want to express our sincerest thanks to Mr. Chang for his outstanding service, dedication and contribution to the Board of Imperial. Those of us that know him personally admire him for not only his business acumen but also for his personal values and commitment to family, traits that will continue to serve both the Company and his family well into the future,” said Mr. McCoach, CEO. Mr. McCoach also notes that the Company is actively reviewing candidates to add to its Board of Directors.
