WEEKEND UNLIMITED UPDATES INVESTMENTS
Weekend Unlimited Updates Investments
VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA (30 January 2019) – Weekend Unlimited Inc. ("Weekend" or the "Company") (CSE: YOLO – FSE: 0OS1) wishes to provide clarification on its investments in Jerome Baker and in Northern Lights Organics. As projects unfold, it sometimes becomes apparent that the original structure of the investment will not work as anticipated.
In respect to Jerome Baker, the Company owns 51% of the operating company, located in Nevada. Because of the inability of the Company to obtain reliable financial records, it was forced to write down its investment in this company in accordance with IFRS. Notwithstanding that write down, the Company is in negotiations with the other shareholder to convert its equity interest into an exclusive license agreement. The Company continues to feel that the Jerome Baker brand has value as one of the most recognized brands in glassware and associated products.
After reviewing the investment case for its northern BC organic hemp brand, the Company is in negotiations to convert its 100% equity ownership in the operating company into a minority interest and a royalty on production. With alternative near term revenue opportunities, the Company is looking to make the best use of its capital.
The Company also wishes to announce that it has granted 2 million options to its Chief Executive Officer under the terms of its incentive stock option plan. These options are exercisable at $0.15 for a period of 5 years.
