Under the agreement, ECGI will acquire all outstanding shares of Pacific Saddlery in exchange for $5,000,000 in ECGI-restricted shares. These shares will remain restricted until ECGI uplists to a national exchange. This acquisition is anticipated to generate new recurring revenue streams and enhance ECGI’s position in the luxury equestrian market.
