/THIS NEWS RELEASE IS NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/
VANCOUVER, May 24, 2018 /CNW/ - Winston Resources Inc. ("Winston" or the "Company") (CSE: WRW; FSE:WNT) is pleased to announce that further to its news release on January 11, 2018 that the Company intends to distribute the 15,000,000 common shares (the "Abattis Shares") of Abattis Bioceuticals Corp. ( "Abattis") on a pro rata basis to the holders of record as of January 23, 2018 (the "Winston Shareholders") of common shares of Winston (the "Proposed Distribution"). The Abattis Shares are subject to a hold period expiring May 25, 2018.
Winston acquired the Abbatis Shares pursuant to the terms of an assignment agreement dated January 10, 2018 (the "Assignment Agreement") between Winston and Abbatis relating to the acquisition of GT Therapeutics Corporation, dba Green Tree Therapeutics ("GTT"). In connection with the closing of the acquisition of GTT by Abattis on January 25, 2018, the Company was issued the Abattis Shares.
After due consideration, Winston's board of directors (the "Board") has approved the Proposed Distribution and believes that the Proposed Distribution will provide Winston Shareholders with two separate investments, and will therefore provide Winston Shareholders with investment flexibility, as they will hold a direct interest in two companies each of which is focused on different objectives. This will allow Winston Shareholders to make focused investment decisions with respect to each type of investment.
The information contained in this news release is not intended to be, and should not be construed to be, legal, business or tax advice to any particular Winston Shareholder or any other person, and no representation is made in this news release with respect to the tax consequences to any particular Winston Shareholder or other person. Winston Shareholders should consult with their own tax advisors regarding the tax consequences of the Proposed Distribution having regard to their particular circumstances.
ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
