Green Swan Capital Corp. Provides Corporate Update on Diversification

BURLINGTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 29, 2014) - Green Swan Capital Corp. (TSX VENTURE:GSW) ("Green Swan") announces an update to its growth and diversification plan previously announced on April 8, 2014. The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) has requested that Green Swan clarify its activities with respect to its survey of opportunities in the medical marijuana sector. The April 8, 2014 news release contained certain disclosure deficiencies with respect to the risks and uncertainties associated with Green Swan's then proposed plan to invest in medical marijuana opportunities in Canada. Notwithstanding these deficiencies, Green Swan's initial search pursuant to the board's direction has enabled it to eliminate the prospect of any involvement (either by investment or otherwise) in the Canadian medical marijuana sector, including without limitation any investment in a Marijuana for Medical Purpose Regulations licensee/applicant. As a result, Green Swan does not plan to activate the separate corporate division focused on marijuana growers as mentioned in Green Swan's management information circular dated May 5, 2014.
