TORONTO and DENVER, Nov. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MJardin Group, Inc. (“MJardin” or the “Company”) (CSE: MJAR) (OTCQX: MJARF), a leader in premium cannabis production, announced today that as part of its ongoing review, evaluation and turnaround process, it has terminated certain management services agreements and consulting agreements (“MSAs”) with parties located in Denver, Colorado, effective immediately.
Following this announcement and the disclosure contained in the Company’s press release dated March 31, 2020, the Company will no longer have any active MSAs in Colorado.
The MSAs between the Company and 3B Ventures, LLC and TwoG Ventures, LLC, (together, the “Clients”) will be terminated, on the consent of the parties, effective immediately. The termination of the MSAs with the Clients will not affect the promissory notes, intellectual property agreements and lease obligations currently in place between the Clients and MJardin.
Termination of the MSAs will substantially reduce U.S. segment revenues and ongoing management obligations, thus reducing costs, which will place fewer cash flow demands on MJardin. The Company remains committed to exploring growth opportunities in the Colorado market while maintaining strict discipline in its approach to capital deployment.

Caution Regarding Cannabis Operations in the United States
Investors should note that there are significant legal restrictions and regulations that govern the cannabis industry in the United States. Cannabis remains a Schedule I drug under the US Controlled Substances Act, making it illegal under federal law in the United States to, among other things, cultivate, distribute or possess cannabis in the United States. Financial transactions involving proceeds generated by, or intended to promote, cannabis-related business activities in the United States may form the basis for prosecution under applicable US federal money laundering legislation.
While the approach to enforcement of such laws by the federal government in the United States has trended toward non-enforcement against individuals and businesses that comply with medical or adult-use cannabis programs in states where such programs are legal, strict compliance with state laws with respect to cannabis will neither absolve the Company of liability under US federal law, nor will it provide a defense to any federal proceeding which may be brought against the Company. The enforcement of federal laws in the United States is a significant risk to the business of the Company and any proceedings brought against the Company thereunder may adversely affect the Company’s operations and financial performance.
