PURA 1-for-1 Shareholder Dividend of PAOG Shares on Track

Newsfile

Published

on

Dallas, Texas–(Newsfile Corp. – October 30, 2020) – PAO Group, Inc. (OTC Pink: PAOG) and Puration, Inc. (OTC: Pink: PURA) today released an update on the process underway for PAOG to issue PAOG shares to PURA shareholders in a dividend distribution.

PAOG acquired a cannabis cultivation operation from PURA earlier this year in a transaction that includes issuing PAOG shares to PURA shareholders. The target distribution ratio calls for PURA shareholders receiving one share of PAOG for every one share of PURA owned.

PAOG has executed two acquisitions in recent months and managed to ramp up and organize acquired cannabis pharmaceutical research assets as necessary to execute a contract prerequisite to developing its acquired cannabis pharmaceutical research assets into an FDA approved drug. PAOG admits the dividend distribution process has lagged behind the acquisition and pharmaceutical development contract efforts. Last week, after completing the pharmaceutical development contract, PAOG management and PURA management committed to rapidly completing the dividend issuance.

Since initiating the joint rapid dividend completion effort, PAOG has filed to redomicile the company to Wyoming and increase the authorized number of shares in order to have the necessary inventory to execute the dividend distribution. PAOG has also engaged the services of the company’s transfer agent to manage the dividend distribution of PAOG stock to PURA shareholders. Once the move to Wyoming is complete, PAOG will file with the necessary financial regulatory authority to finalize the dividend details. PAOG anticipates a definitive dividend distribution announcement will be forthcoming within the next two weeks.

PAOG is excited to make PURA shareholders also PAOG shareholders.

The developing PAOG and PURA partnership includes PAOG participating in PURA’s new hemp lifestyle brand strategy, called Farmersville Brands and headquartered on a 72-acre property currently under contract for acquisition by PURA. In conjunction with PAOG’s newly acquired cultivation business, PAOG plans to build a pharmaceutical grade, indoor hemp cultivation operation and lab on PURA’s Farmersville property.

Look for more information coming soon from both PURA and PAOG.

“This is also the story of how my wife and I entered a forbidden world of drug users, and found it to be enchanted. MDMA opened up our lives to new friends, fun, and freedom. It’s also helped us navigate the aging process as we transitioned from middle age into our sixties and seventies.” – Charley Wininger

Wininger’s writing and personal narrative shows how MDMA can be a tool for healing and connection. This is why this particular psychedelic compound is being studied to treat Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) with Phase 3, peer-reviewed trials taking place at research sites in the U.S., Canada, and Israel. (Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, 2020). At the current pace, MDMA will be a prescription medication in the U.S. by 2023.

In a recent Forbes article, Charley referred to MDMA as “super glue for relationships“. He and his wife are open to giving candid interviews about how MDMA helps to strengthen their connection.“It can help you connect with yourself, with your loved ones and with the world at large, [which] is especially important now when we live in a time of isolation and fear.” – Charley Wininger (Forbes)
