Blockmate Ventures Provides Update on Ongoing Initiatives

TORONTO, April 26, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Blockmate Ventures Inc (TSX.V: MATE) (FSE: 8MH1) ("Blockmate" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on certain ongoing corporate initiatives.

Midpoint Divestiture
The Company has completed its previously announced divestiture of Midpoint, its cross-border payments and foreign exchange business. The Midpoint business was assigned to David Wong, in consideration for the assumption of responsibility for all liabilities and obligations associated with the business as well as expenses associated with maintaining its operations.

The divestiture is expected to reduce annual net cash outflows by approximately $500,000. The Company is at arms-length from David Wong, and no finders' fees or commissions were paid in connection with completion of the divestiture.

BESS Power Innovation Corporation
The Company has elected to terminate the share purchase agreement previously entered into with the shareholders of BESS Power Innovation Corporation. The Company has determined not to proceed with the acquisition of BESS. No funds were advanced to BESS in connection with the proposed acquisition, and the Company has not assumed any ongoing liabilities or obligations as a result of termination of the agreement.

Hivello Holdings Ltd., an investee of the Company, recently completed financings totaling US$2.5 million. The Company holds a 67% interest in Hivello, and the recent financings give that interest an implied value of approximately US$6.7 million (CAD $8.9 million) or 8.1 cents per Blockmate share1. Completion of the divestiture of the Midpoint business, and termination of the acquisition of BESS, will allow the Company to focus its available resources on the continued development of Hivello as well as the evaluation of other prospective investment opportunities.
