Veritas Announces the Sale of the Sechelt Property

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - December 9, 2019) - Veritas Pharma Inc.'s (CSE: VRT) (OTC: VRTHF) (Frankfurt: 2VP) ("Veritas" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that its fully owned subsidiary the Sechelt Organic Marijuana Corp. has completed the sale of its property located in Sechelt, BC, to Lis Holdings Ltd. for cash consideration of $350,000.

This property was originally purchased in February 2015 with plans to construct a medical cannabis production facility under the ACMPR program. However, due to significant and unforeseen changes to the licensing requirements the property could no longer qualify for the intended use. Veritas Interim CEO, Mr. Peter McFadden, commented "this asset no longer provided any strategic value to our shareholders, as such we believe it to be prudent to sell the asset. It has been our aim to consolidate the company's assets to assets with potential to provide revenue within near to medium term."
