NewBridge Global Ventures Announces Sale of Marijuana Operations in Strategic Shift to Focus on Processing & Extraction of Hemp

Corporate Goal to become World Leading Supplier of CBD Products

Orem, UT, Dec. 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- NewBridge Global Ventures, Inc., (OTCQB: NBGV), a technology led hemp processing company, today announced that it has reached an agreement for the sale of the Company’s subsidiary entities associated with its marijuana operations. As a result of the sale of these entities, the Company will no longer have any operations in the marijuana industry. Sam Mac, who is purchasing the marijuana operations, will step down from his position as Chief Operating Officer of the Company, but will continue as a director. The sale will enable NewBridge to focus on its proprietary state-of-the-art processing and extraction technologies for the hemp industry and execute on its vision to become a world leading supplier of CBD products.

The sale to management includes the subsidiaries 5Leaf, LLC; Mad Creek Farm, LLC; Mad Creek, LLC; 725 East 11th Street; LLC, Roots of Caly, LLC; The Bay Clonery, LLC, and Green Thumb Distributors, Inc. The sale also includes certain associated leasehold improvements, equipment, licenses and intellectual property and notes. 

Chris Bourdon, Chief Executive Officer of Newbridge, commented, “The promise of the revolutionary, continuous processing system that NewBridge has developed through a series of technology license partnerships, has prompted this shift in the Company’s strategic plans. Key differentiators of this unique process includes continuous processing of fresh hemp biomass at industrial scale, using only water and low pressure energy waves and eliminating the costly and time intensive bottleneck of drying and curing biomass and the use of harsh chemicals, like ethanol, that are used by nearly every CBD oil producer today. We believe that this exclusive, proprietary technology, which is widely used to meet the processing requirements of several other industries, will transform the extraction and post-processing of CBD oil in the hemp industry and position NewBridge to become a leading supplier of CBD products.”
