DENVER, Sept. 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mydecine Innovations Group Inc. (CSE:MYCO) (OTC:MYCOF) (FSE:0NFA) ("Mydecine" or the "Company"), today announced the Company has formed a special committee to evaluate a number of options to increase shareholders value.
Topics that the special committee will discuss include, but limited to, a potential spin out of certain company assets. Currently, the company owns and operates a number of growing US assets in the THC-cannabis and hemp-CBD space, along with distribution, that are being evaluated and assessed as potential spin out options with respect to the Mydecine's non-fungi related assets. Current shareholders would receive automatic shares of the SpinCo.
“We are constantly looking at ways to increase our shareholder value. Our company has grown at an incredible rate and is quickly establishing itself as a leader in the functional mushroom and psychedelic medicine space,” said Mydecine Chief Executive Officer, Joshua Bartch. “With that said, the company has a number of highly valuable assets that could potentially create larger shareholder value if they were spun out into a more focused stand-alone vehicle. We are currently evaluating a number of potential options and partners to accomplish this goal."
Further information will be provided as this opportunity develops.
