Blockmate Ventures Inc (TSX.V: MATE) (FSE: 8MH1) (‘ Blockmate ‘ or the ‘ Company ‘) announces that it has completed the divestiture of Midpoint (see www.midpoint.com ), its cross-border payments and foreign exchange business to the management team, led by Mr David Wong, Expadis and its group of investors (‘ Midpoint Management ‘). In consideration for the divestiture, Midpoint Management will assume responsibility for all liabilities and obligations associated with the business as well as operational expenses associated with maintaining its operations.
The divestiture will allow the Company to focus on higher growth technology investments, and is expected to reduce annual net cash outflows by approximately $500,000. The Company is at arms-length from Mr. David Wong, and no finders’ fees or commissions were paid in connection with completion of the divestiture.
Justin Rosenberg, CEO of Blockmate said ‘We wish David and the rest of the Midpoint team every success as they take Midpoint forward. This sale allows Blockmate to better capitalise on the exciting trajectory of its current assets in the fast growing sectors of blockchain and climate technology: Hivello and BESS Power Innovation Corp (subject to exchange approval). We expect to update the market with progress in both companies within the next couple of months.’
