/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR RELEASE PUBLICATION, DISTRIBUTION OR DISSEMINATION DIRECTLY, OR INDIRECTLY, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES./
TORONTO, Nov. 9, 2012 /CNW/ - Rockstar Capital Corp. (TSXV: ROC.P) ("Rockstar") is pleased to announce that, following the TSX Venture Exchange's (the "TSXV") conditional acceptance of its previously announced qualifying transaction (the "Proposed Transaction"), which, upon completion, will result in a reverse take-over of Rockstar by the shareholders of First Global Data Corp. ("First Global"), Rockstar has now filed the filing statement for the Proposed Transaction on SEDAR.
As disclosed in a press release dated April 17, 2012, Rockstar and First Global entered into an amalgamation agreement (the "Definitive Agreement") in respect of the Proposed Transaction. The Definitive Agreement, which was negotiated at arm's length and is effective as of April 4, 2012, was amended to, amongst other things: (i) reflect the issuance of First Global class B shares, First Global series H debenture finder's fees and warrants, and series J debentures and warrants; (ii) update the aggregate amounts and conversion price of First Global debentures; and (iii) change the number of units issued and the aggregate gross proceeds raised pursuant to the brokered private placement of First Global. All of the other terms of the initial Definitive Agreement remain valid and in effect. It is anticipated that the Proposed Transaction will close on or about November 21, 2012.
In accordance with TSXV policies, the common shares of Rockstar are currently halted from trading, and it is intended that they will remain halted until completion of the Proposed Transaction. Upon completion of the Proposed Transaction, the resulting issuer, to be named "First Global Data Limited", is expected to be listed on the TSXV as a Tier 2 technology company.
Reference is also made to Rockstar's press release dated November 1, 2011 for additional details relating to Rockstar, First Global and the Proposed Transaction.
All information contained in this press release with respect to Rockstar and First Global was supplied by the parties respectively, for inclusion herein, and each party and its directors and officers have relied on the other party for any information concerning the other party.
Completion of the transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to, TSXV final acceptance and, if applicable, pursuant to the requirements of the TSXV, majority of the minority shareholder approval. Where applicable, the transaction cannot close until the required shareholder approval is obtained. There can be no assurance that the transaction will be completed as proposed or at all.
