TORONTO, Jan. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BELGRAVIA CAPITAL INTERNATIONAL INC. (CSE:BLGV) (OTCQB:BLGVF) ("Belgravia Capital", "Belgravia", or the "Company") is pleased to announced that the second cash payment of USD $1.4 million, due from Cartesian Capital Group controlled Intercontinental Potash Corp. (USA) has been received. The Canadian equivalent amount received is $1.74 million. Current working capital, prior to the completion of the current financing, announced on January 3, 2018, is CAD $5.1 million.
The Company is pleased to announce that Dr. Sam Hanna, a recognized Canadian dermatologist has been appointed as Special Advisor to Belgravia's wholly owned subsidiary, ICP Organics Corp. ("ICP Organics"). As announced on March 28, 2017, ICP Organics will focus on increasing the health impact and effects for consumers of medicinal cannabis in its various formats. Dr. Hanna, is a practicing dermatologist. Cannabidiol ("CBD") is a cannabinoid found throughout the seeds, stalk and flowers of cannabis plants including hemp. Hemp and hemp derived CBD products are among the fastest growing segments in the cannabis industry. According to a report by market intelligence firm Hemp Business Journal the CBD market may grow to $2.1 billion by 2020. According to a published study in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, published September 2014, there is sufficient scientific data to strongly encourage future study in clinical trials to determine whether either systemic or topical application of CBD and/or appropriate modulation of the related signalling pathways deserves full clinical exploration as a potent novel class of anti-acne agents. According to the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, as published in an article July 2017, Cannabinoids may have anti-inflammatory properties useful for the treatment of both allergic contact dermatitis and atopic dermatitis.
Mr. Mehdi Azodi, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Belgravia stated: "We are very pleased to have Dr. Hanna join the advisory panel of ICP Organics, as we seek to expand our horizons in the legal medicinal cannabis business. In addition, we are continuing to develop the specifications for our blockchain concepts with respect to distributed databases as a service to retail consumers, and as a value-added technology for the medical cannabis industry. In addition to the developments, previously announced, we are investigating an additional blockchain concept, which may have the potential to provide a dramatic and significantly disruptive solution for certain aspects of customer generation and retention for licensed producers, and other distributors of legal cannabis products, around the world."
Mr. Azodi continued: "As previously announced the company has investments of approximately $675,000 in a developing portfolio of strategic research and development investments in companies which will provide value-added services to Belgravia in terms of profitable ideas and relationships in the legal medicinal cannabis industry and the blockchain sector. Based on current working capital, and the shortly anticipated closing of the current financing, we expect to expand this strategic investment portfolio. This will include taking an active role in the management of the operations of these investee companies in certain cases."
