ROCKSHIELD CAPITAL PROVIDES INVESTMENT PORTFOLIO UPDATE
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - December 20, 2017) - Rockshield Capital Corp. (CSE:RKS), (US:CRUOF), (FSE:6B
--->C) ("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 appreciatio
--->n of various crypto currencies and the increased awareness of the potential benefits this new technology could unlock. W
--->ith the overall growth of the industry there have been a number of investment opportunities that have emerged both in th
--->e private and public markets and Rockshield has been diligently reviewing countless opportunities and to date has invest
--->ed 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 expa
--->nd operations and go public providing investment liquidity. In addition to continuing to screen for attractive investmen
--->t 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 strate
--->gy 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 w
--->e 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".
