Mentor Capital Announces Second Stock Buyback \\ 300,000 Shares to be Repurchased with 5% of Cash and Cash-like Assets

SAN DIEGO, Mentor Capital, Inc. (OTC Markets: MNTR) is initiating the repurchase of 300,000 shares of its currently outstanding common stock.   The repurchase will be funded by the commitment of approximately 5% of the company’s cash and cash-like current assets which are specifically identified and reserved.  Mentor Capital’s first stock repurchase plan of 100,000 shares was fully executed and completed in December 2013.  It is the company’s policy to fully execute any stock repurchase plan announced.

In analyzing the stock repurchase decision, Mentor Capital notes that the company is cash and current asset rich with virtually no non-affiliate debt in a market expected to grow twenty-fold.  In this upward trending sector, Mentor Capital will invest in cannabis companies with greater promise as it rotates out of other cannabis companies with less potential, all in the normal course. The company CEO has sold no shares.  

Stock repurchases are intended to be conducted in compliance with the Rule 10b-18 safe harbor guidelines
