VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nabis Holdings Inc. (CSE: NAB) (OTC: NABIF) (FRA: A2PL) (“Nabis” or the “Company”) announces that Nabis AZ, LLC (“Nabis AZ”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, failed to fund its deferred payment obligation in respect of an asset purchase agreement for the assets and management agreements related to the operation and management of Perpetual Healthcare Inc. (“Perpetual”), the operator of the Emerald medical marijuana retail dispensary located in Arizona. Nabis AZ was required to make payment to the vendors under such asset purchase agreement of approximately USD $8.1 million, including accrued interest, which was due on October 25, 2020 (the “Deferred Obligation”). The Company’s efforts to secure alternative financing to fulfill the Deferred Obligation have been unsuccessful to date.
