VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Premier Diversified Holdings Inc. ("Premier" or the "Company") (TSXV: PDH) announces that, subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"), it will acquire 5,144,000 Common shares of ZED Therapeutics Inc. ("ZED") for total consideration of $25,720.

ZED is a privately held company incorporated under the laws of Alberta. ZED is a start-up company which intends to participate in the medicinal hemp industry. Medicinal hemp is distinct from medicinal cannabis. Medicinal hemp is CBD oil and plant products with less than 0.3% THC.  The Company is acquiring common shares of ZED at a price of $0.005 per common share. All other subscribers in ZED's financing are acquiring common shares at the same price as the Company. Following closing of ZED's financing, Premier anticipates that it will hold approximately 36.7% of the issued and outstanding shares of ZED. ZED may complete future equity financings which would result in dilution of Premier's interest in ZED.

Sanjeev Parsad, a director and officer of the Company, is a director of ZED as of August 29, 2018.  Mr. Parsad will not be active in the management or day-to-day activities of ZED.
