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. 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.
Segra CEO Todd McMurray
