VANCOUVER, BC, March 17, 2023 /CNW/ – Kings Entertainment Group Inc. (“Kings Entertainment” or the “Company“) (CSE: JKPT) (OTC: JKPTF) announces that, despite months of consistent effort by the Company, Sports Venture Holdings Inc. (“SVH“) is refusing to complete the previously agreed business combination of the Company and SVH (the “Business Combination“) announced on May 25, 2022.
The terms of the Business Combination were agreed to pursuant to a business combination agreement dated May 24, 2022 (the “Business Combination Agreement“) between Kings Entertainment and SVH. Pursuant to three extension agreements between the Company and SVH, the outside date to close the Business Combination Agreement had been extended to March 17, 2023 (the “Outside Date“). Despite the Company’s willingness and ability to complete the Business Combination prior to the Outside Date, SVH has advised that it does not intend to do so.
The Company is considering all options with respect to the enforcement of the Business Combination Agreement, the loan and its other rights.
