May 30, 2018 – Toronto, Ontario – Matica Enterprises Inc. (MMJ – CSE) (39N – Frankfurt) (MQPXF – OTC) (“Matica” or the “Company”) is very pleased to announce that the Company has SEDAR filed the unaudited Financial Statements and corresponding Management Discussion and Analysis for the three months ended March 31, 2018.
As At March 31, 2018
|Cash||$ 6,964,920 (increase of $3,151,254 since Dec.31, 2017)|
|Marketable Securities||$ 1,575,000 (increase of $ 525,000 since Dec.31, 2017)|
|Working Capital||$ 8,430,052 (increase of $3,757,660 since Dec.31, 2017)|

|Exercise of stock options||$ 86,800|
|Exercise of warrants||$ 70,000|
|Private Placement||$ 525,000|
The Marketable Securities value of $1,575,000 represents the 525,000 shares received as a third party settlement of the $700,000 claimed from THC Dispensaries Canada Inc. The value per share is based upon third party SEDAR filings of financings closed in January 2018 at $3.00 per share. We expect that this value will further increase as at June 30, 2018 based upon notification of a financing currently underway at $5.00 per share.
The Company also expects that most of the remaining 807,568 broker warrants exercisable at $0.05 and the 24,961,500 warrants exercisable at $0.10 will be exercised prior to their January 10, 2019 expiry date for additional working capital proceeds of $2,536,528.
George A. Brown, Director and Interim CFO states: “The Company’s financial position continues to improve quarterly. Our projected available working capital for the planned 2018 Phase 1 construction of a 200,000 square foot greenhouse is over $10 million without requiring additional financing. We have engaged Ron Berkhout of Inhuis Contrived Inc. to design and cost out the construction which is expected to commence in June of 2018. This projected $10 million is in addition to the remaining $1,400,000 to be invested in Yunify , a line of credit secured by a mortgage being extended to purchase the 181 acre property, and the projected general and administrative expenses required to operate Matica through to the end of 2018. We are also very pleased that our settlement for the $695,000 invested by Matica into THC Dispensaries Canada Inc. is valued at $1,575,000 at March 31, 2018 and is expected to increase to $2,625,000 upon the close of a reported financing underway at $5.00 per share.”
