VANCOUVER, Aug. 27, 2019 /CNW/ - Rockshield Capital Corp. (CSE: RKS), (US: RKSCF), (FSE: 6BC) ("Rockshield" or the "Company") provides a corporate update on the company's latest developments.
The Canadian venture markets have had a turbulent 2019 and Rockshield has patiently been assessing new deal flow while preserving its cash as it looks for attractive opportunities in the context of the market. After liquidating certain positioning earlier in the year, Rockshield has built a strong cash position of $4.1MM after completing an Issuer Bid of 2.7MM shares @ $0.09. This cash position represents $0.09/share and the total current portfolio is valued at $0.175/share representing a 149% premium over our current RKS share price of $0.07/share. The discount to both our cash and total portfolio position remains a concern for management and we continue to explore ways to close the gap.
One of Rockshield's largest positions, Plus Products is the leading cannabis edibles brand in the US and currently has the #1 & #2 branded cannabis product and #1 gummies brand in California. The company has dominated California with its gummies and is now in process of launching new products and moving into new states as it looks to accelerate its growth. Plus is owned by some of the largest and most sophisticated investors in the sector and is a prime acquisition target for other MSO's, CPG's and the world's largest confectionary companies. We believe Plus represents the best way for investors to gain exposure to the fast-growing cannabis edibles market in the US.
