LOS ANGELES and IRVINE, Calif. – September 25, 2020 – ManifestSeven Holdings Corporation (formerly P&P Ventures Inc.) (“M7” or the “Company”), California’s first integrated omnichannel platform for legal cannabis, today announced, further to its news releases dated July 11, 2019, April 2, 2019, and September 3, 2020, that it has closed its previously announced reverse takeover transaction with MJIC, Inc. (“MJIC”), effective September 25, 2020 (the “RTO”).
Immediately prior to closing the RTO, the Company completed a consolidation of its common shares (the “Shares”) on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation Share for every 1.33333225 pre-consolidation Shares (the “Consolidation”), as well a name change of the Company from “P&P Ventures Inc.” to “ManifestSeven Holdings Corporation”. In connection with the RTO, the articles of the Company were amended to provide for multiple classes of shares with varying voting and nonvoting rights, including replacing its Shares with Class A common shares (“Subordinate Voting Shares”), which will be the securities that the Company expects to list on the CSE, Class B non-voting shares (“Subordinate Non-Voting Shares”), which are convertible to Subordinate Voting Shares on a 1:1 basis on the date that is 12 months from the date of closing of the RTO, and Class C shares (“Proportionate Voting Shares”), which hold ten votes per share and are convertible to Subordinate Voting Shares on the basis of one Proportionate Voting Shares for ten Subordinate Voting Shares, subject to certain limitations.
The RTO was completed by way of a merger, pursuant to which MJIC merged with and into a wholly-owned Delaware subsidiary of the Company, which was the surviving entity of the merger (“Amalco”). Amalco now holds MJIC’s assets as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, and shall operate under the name “ManifestSeven, Inc.”.
The Company has received conditional approval for listing the Subordinate Voting Shares from the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE”), and anticipates completing its filing for listing of its Subordinate Voting Shares on September 30, 2020.
For further information in respect of the RTO, please see the listing statement of the Company anticipated to be filed under the Company’s profile on SEDAR as well as on the CSE website.
ManifestSeven is the first integrated omnichannel platform for legal cannabis, merging compliant distribution with a retail superhighway.
