Toronto, Ontario, CANADA


TORONTO, Sept. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Toronto, Ontario - Deveron UAS Corp. (CSE: DVR) (“Deveron” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce that it has received final payment for its previously reported (see press release dated January 6, 2017) tendering of its shareholdings in Boreal Agrominerals Inc. (“Boreal”). The Company has received final payment of approximately $0.17 per share on its original holdings of 3 million shares, totaling $517,000. In total, Deveron received cash considerations of $967,000 or approximately $0.32 per share paid in three tranches.

In addition, the Company also reports that it has recently received final payment of $50,000 from New Gold Inc. for its Nechako gold property in B.C., situated on the Nechako Plateau, approximately 110 kilometers southwest of Vanderhoof and 160 kilometers west of Quesnel, adjacent to New Gold Inc.’s Blackwater property.

“We are excited to have concluded the sale of our legacy assets,” commented Deveron’s President and CEO, David MacMillan. “We have transformed Deveron into a leading drone data network for North American farmers. With our recent acquisition of Veritas Farm Management, this non-dilutive influx of cash will continue to provide growth capital for what we see as an ever-expanding opportunity in data on the farm, powered by analytics and drone data. Deveron is exiting the summer with a stronger balance sheet than ever before with close to $4 million in cash. We look forward to investing in growth opportunities that add to our paid acres under management and expanding our gross margins as we push Deveron from a pure data service provider into a product company.”
