Rockshield Capital Corp. (CSE:RKS), (US:CRUOF), (FSE:6BC) (“Rockshield” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on the company’s investment portfolio.
Over the past 6 months the nascent blockchain industry has experienced incredible growth driven by the price appreciation of various crypto currencies and the increased awareness of the potential benefits this new technology could unlock. With the overall growth of the industry there have been a number of investment opportunities that have emerged both in the private and public markets and Rockshield has been diligently reviewing countless opportunities and to date has invested in a number of blockchain companies that we think are best positioned to capitalize on this emerging global industry.
Leveraging our professional network we have gained access to a number of investments at early stage private rounds that are attractively priced and should position Rockshield to capture significant value appreciation as these companies expand operations and go public providing investment liquidity. In addition to continuing to screen for attractive investment opportunities the Company is reviewing opportunities to unlock the value of our private holdings potentially by way of a spin out into separate public market vehicles in order to generate further shareholder returns.
We have recently updated our corporate website (www.rockshield.ca) to provide greater clarity into our investment strategy and current holdings in the cannabis, blockchain, healthcare and resources sectors and we will look to provide a more detailed summary of the recent investments we have made in the blockchain and cannabis industry shortly.
Dave Doherty, President and CEO said “We are extremely pleased with the portfolio of blockchain and cannabis companies we have invested in, as we think we have backed some of the best management teams in the business, with professional and scalable operations, that are well positioned to prosper within the their respective industries. In addition we continue to evaluate various strategies to unlock the value of our holdings in order to maximize shareholder returns”.

Quantum 1 Cannabis (CSE:QQ) announced its revenue for the third quarter of 2021 has increased by 672 percent and gross profit has increased by 463 percent compared with the same quarter in 2020. Quantum 1 Cannabis CEO Russ Rossi expounded on this exponential growth and what’s behind this remarkable leap. 

“We had an opportunity during our cannabis training to opt into some leases for cannabis retail. So we thought, let’s take a shot at this and see if we can use our experience with mobile location and supercharge. It paid off. It was a new game for everybody. It’s a lot of luck when opportunity meets preparation,” said Rossi. 

Quantum 1 Cannabis attributed the growth to high month-over-month sales coming from its flagship store in North Vancouver, improved demand for specialized “cottage-grown” sativa and indica products, continued training and hiring of best-of-breed staff and management to cater to consumer inquiries and expanded in-house technology for management of human resources, inventory and regulatory requirements. 

“Our plan is to have the maximum number of retail stores possible in British Columbia. We have 10 year leases on these stores, putting everything in on a solid pitch for the city council. I’m pretty confident that we’re going to have eight centers full blast in BC within six months,” explained Rossi. 

Quantum 1 Cannabis has signed a memorandum of understanding to acquire an approved municipal cannabis retail location in one of Vancouver’s most diverse neighborhoods at 41st Avenue and Cambie Street in Vancouver, British Columbia. The flagship location is expected to expand the company’s footprint in the Lower Mainland.

Ayurcann (CSE:AYUR) entered into a joint venture with Bazelet Group, Israel’s largest privately held medical cannabis company. Ayurcann CEO Igal Sudman shared the company’s excitement about bringing unique terpene-enriched medicinal cannabis to the Canadian marketplace. 

“Canada is a very closed-loop country, and the opportunity to bring a variety of different enhancement and technologically advanced products is very important to us. The relationship that we formed with Bazelet is going to enhance our offerings into the Canadian marketplace,” Sudman said. 

Bazelet has launched multiple lines of terpene-enriched cannabis oils; each one is specifically designed for various indications, symptoms and personal needs. The company’s terpene-enriched products are optimized for women’s health, for elderly population needs, for specific types of pains (muscle, joint, neuropathic) and for improved night sleep. 

According to Sudman, there are a lot of larger companies that have tried to do this, but none have been able to successfully bring innovation into the market. Ayurcann is rapidly forging partnerships with several companies worldwide, including Cannmart, Patient Choice and Kindred Partners.

“We’re growing the business, customer base, relationships and partnerships worldwide. We’re bringing the latest technology into Canada, and enhancing not only our company, but the investors’ value moving forward,” added Sudman.
