Termination of Watson Energy Investments
Since Atlantic’s signing of its agreement to acquire Watson in late 2018 management of Watson have been unable to provide requisite financial information to Atlantic’s accountants to conclude the year end 2018 and subsequent financial reports. Moreover, the two operating wells were not vended in pursuant to the agreement with Watson. Given this, it was deemed in the best interest of the shareholders to enter into a termination rescission and mutual release with Watson and to focus on its current operations. The 200 million shares issued in the transaction were rescinded.
Filings on OTC Markets
Following the termination, the Company’s accountants have advised that the Fiscal 2018 year-end along with Q1 2019 are being prepared. The Consolidation of KB Industries will commence starting late Q2/ Q3 2019.
Commenting on the news, Kevin Bagnall, Atlantic Wind & Solar’s President & CEO, stated, “I am very excited about the merger with AWSL. We are well positioned for solid growth and the enhancement of shareholder value.”
Management looks forward to updating its shareholders in coming press releases.
