Cloud Nine Education Group Ltd. has signed and closed an asset purchase agreement, dated March 15, 2021, to acquire certain intellectual property assets related to a development-stage virtual private network (VPN) platform from Victory Square Technologies Inc.

Cloud Nine anticipates it will incur a further $500,000 in development to advance the platform to the beta testing phase and hopes to offer a finished product on or before Q3 2021.
