/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Segra International Corp., a cannabis agritech company, has terminated the proposed acquisition by Chichi Financial Inc., citing recent market conditions as being a major factor in the decision to postpone going public.
“This decision is a measured response to the recent volatility being experienced by the cannabis markets,” said Segra CEO Todd McMurray. “It is simply not in the best interest of shareholders to proceed with a go public transaction at this time. Segra will remain focused on adding value and executing our plan to improve the financial performance and risk mitigation of our strategic partners.”
