Corporate Lonely Hearts: Public Shell Seeks Reverse Merger Partner

I think Jane Austen put it best when she said, “it is a truth universally acknowledged, that a private company in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a public shell to reverse merge with.” Well, she said something like that anyway. . .

However, finding your corporate soul mate isn’t always an easy process – and maybe that’s why one lonely public shell decided to take out a personals ad to let prospective suitors know it was available.  The ad wasn’t shy about letting those suitors know that this shell had a lot to offer:

OTCQB Ready Fully Reporting Pink Trading Public Shell For Sale

– Selling control block (30,000,000 restricted shares)
– Has symbol, trading and quoted on the OTC Pink w/piggyback status OTCQB READY!

Other attributes included “DTC Eligible!” and “No regulatory issues.”  Of course, as Madonna noted, “we are living in a material world,” so a suitor wasn’t going to get all this for free.  So what was the price? “Cash & Carry – Ask $349,500.00.” The big question is – did true love prevail?  Based on my sleuthing, it appears that the answer is yes.  Our public shell – “China Grand Resorts” – seems to have found Jacksam Corporation, a maker of cannabis vaporizers for medical marijuana. The couple reverse merged last September & gave birth to a bouncing baby S-1 earlier this month.
