LOS ANGELES – ECGI Holdings, Inc. (“ECGI” or the “Company”) (OTC PINK: ECGI), today announces a realignment of its corporate strategy toward an acquisition model within the fast-growing legal cannabis marketplace. The Company will target the entry into selected California cannabis business areas that can be successfully expanded into a national footprint. Over the coming weeks, the board of directors of the Company plans to announce a new management team that has considerable experience in the regulated portion of the California cannabis marketplace.
“The first task of the new management team will be to update all required filings and solidify the offer on our first cannabis real estate and licensed business operation,” commented Company Chairman, William Chung. “With our first acquisition offer out, we will then work to solidify a new network of investors to fund our real estate properties and operations. Our business and acquisition emphasis will be primarily on real estate properties licensed with cannabis cultivation, manufacturing, distribution and delivery service operations, where we can implement selected vertical integration to reduce costs across the entire business spectrum. We are also interested in acquiring properties zoned for cannabis cultivation and processing that have excellent chances to be granted state and local permits. We believe such properties will rise in value as the size of the overall cannabis market increases and as local jurisdictions decrease license issuance rates.”
With a change in control of both the White House and the U.S. Senate, the Company believes the national de-scheduling of cannabis will begin later in 2021, thus creating significant opportunities for the industry’s market participants, especially those with business operations and experience that can be leveraged across a national geography. The Company plans to take this nationalization view into consideration when selecting cannabis business acquisition targets.
