Rockshield says no news here, but aren't we awesome?

2017-12-20 06:42 ET - News Release

Mr. Dave Doherty reports


Rockshield Capital Corp. is providing an update on the company's investment portfolio.

Over the past six months the nascent blockchain industry has experienced incredible growth driven by the price appreciation of various cryptocurrencies 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 it thinks are best positioned to capitalize on this emerging global industry.

Leveraging the company's professional network, it has 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 its private holdings potentially by way of a spinout into separate public market vehicles in order to generate further shareholder returns.

The company recently updated its corporate website to provide greater clarity into its investment strategy and current holdings in the cannabis, blockchain, health care and resources sectors, and it will look to provide a more detailed summary of the recent investments it has made in the blockchain and cannabis industry shortly.

Dave Doherty, president and chief executive officer, 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."
