(CSE: PUSH, OTC: PUSOF, FSX: 713) (the “Company” or “Pushfor”) is pleased to announce that it has closed the share and asset acquisition of AFX Networks Inc. – dba American Freight X-change – (“AFX”), a shipping and logistics Blockchain platform focused on the trucking industry, in consideration of 15,000,000 shares of the Company at a per-share price of CAD $0.10 and USD $250,000 paid in cash at the closing.
