(the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has, subject to final approval of the NEX board of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "NEX"), closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") of units of the Company ("Units"), pursuant to which, the Company issued an aggregate of 10,000,000 Units for gross proceeds of $750,000. Each Unit is comprised of one (1) common share in the capital of the Company (a "Common Share") and one (1) transferable common share purchase warrant of the Company (a "Warrant").

Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Private Placement, the proceeds shall be held in trust by a law firm until the earlier of the completion of the Company's previously announced consolidation (the "Consolidation") or March 31, 2018. If the Consolidation is not completed by March 31, 2018, the proceeds of the Private Placement shall be returned to the respective subscribers of the Units.
The net proceeds of the Private Placement, if released to the Company, will be used for general working capital.
Pursuant to applicable securities laws, all securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to a hold period of four months plus one day following the date of issuance of such securities.
Completion of the Private Placement is subject to certain conditions, including but not limited to, the Company completing the Consolidation by March 31, 2018 and final approval of the NEX.
