Proposed Consolidation

The Company announces that it intends to complete a consolidation of its issued and outstanding common shares (each, a “Share”) on the basis of three (3) pre-consolidation Shares for one (1) post-consolidation Share (the “Consolidation”).

It is anticipated that the Consolidation will reduce the number of outstanding Shares from 54,866,625 Shares to approximately 18,288,875 post-consolidated Shares, subject to adjustment for rounding. The Board of Directors of the Company believes that the Consolidation of the Shares will enhance the marketability of the Company as an investment and better position the Company to raise the funds necessary to execute the Company’s business plan.

The Company does not intend to change its name or its current trading symbol in connection with the proposed Consolidation. The effective date of the Consolidation will be announced in a subsequent news release. The Company has set May 24, 2024 as the proposed record date for the Consolidation.

No fractional post-consolidated Shares will be issued as a result of the Consolidation. Shareholders who would otherwise be entitled to receive a fraction of a post-consolidated Share will be rounded down to the nearest whole number of post-consolidated Shares and no cash consideration will be paid in respect of fractional shares.

The exercise price and number of Shares of the Company issuable upon the exercise of outstanding options and warrants will be proportionally adjusted upon the implementation of the proposed Consolidation in accordance with the terms thereof.

The Company will be obtaining a new CUSIP and ISIN number in connection with the Consolidation.  The new CUSIP and ISIN numbers will be disclosed in a subsequent news release.  The Company anticipates that the CSE will issue a bulletin to dealers advising of the Consolidation and effective date of trading on a consolidated basis.

Restructuring of Certain Debt

The Company also wishes to announce that it has restructured certain debt (the “Restructuring”) in the amount of $1,911,451.33 (the “Debt”) owed to certain directors (at the time) and arm’s length parties (the “Creditors”).  In connection with the foregoing, the Company entered into a debt restructuring agreement (the “Debt Agreement”) with the Creditors.  Pursuant to the Debt Agreement, the Creditors agreed to forgive a certain portion of the Debt and to restructure the repayment of the balance by the Company.  The Debt will accrue interest at a rate of 8% per annum, and will be repaid over a period of 60 months in installment payments every six (6) months, commencing on the date that is six (6) months from the date of the Debt Agreement. 

The Restructuring is a “Related Party Transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI61-101”) as each of Caitlin Jeffs, a current director, Joao (John) Da Costa, a former director, and Richard Jeffs, the Company’s major shareholder, are parties to the Debt Agreement.  The Restructuring is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 based on the exemption set out section 5.5(g) and section 5.7(1)(e) of MI61-101, respectively, on the basis of the “financial hardship” exemption therein.  The Debt Agreement was approved by the independent directors of the Company.
