/Not for distribution in the United States or over United States wire services/

MONTREAL, Aug. 31, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - OneCap Investment Corporation (TSXV: OIC.H) ("OneCap or the "Corporation"), a capital pool company as defined under Policy 2.4 – Capital Pool Companies ("Policy 2.4") of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"), announces the completion on August 25, 2017 of its Qualifying transaction (the "Qualifying Transaction") under Policy 2.4. 

The Qualifying Transaction was completed by the way of a three cornered amalgamation. As part of the amalgamation, 28,895,091 OneCap common shares were issued to the shareholders of Rio Moche Exploration Inc. ("Rio") based on an exchange ratio of one OneCap share for each 2.3 outstanding shares of Rio (the "Exchange Ratio"), at a deemed price of $0.20 per OneCap share. All outstanding convertible securities of Rio (3,520,000 options and 8,000,000 warrants) were exchanged for OneCap's options and warrants having similar terms based on the Exchange Ratio. The OneCap shares shall be issued pursuant to the provision of section 2.11(b) of Regulation 45-106 respecting Prospectus Exemptions.

In connection with the Qualifying Transaction, the Corporation completed a private placement (the "Offering") of 5,100,000 Units, each unit being comprised of one common share and one half of a common share purchase warrant of OneCap (the "Units"), which resulted in aggregate gross proceeds to the Corporation of $1,020,000. The Offering was led by Laurentian Bank Securities Inc. (the "Agent"). In connection with the Offering, the Agent was granted 357,000 compensation warrants of OneCap (the "Compensation Warrants") representing 7% of the number of Units sold under the Offering. Each Compensation Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one common share of OneCap at an exercise price of $0.25 for a period of 24 months following the closing date of the Offering. The Agent also received a cash commission equal to 10% of the gross proceeds from the sale of Units to investors whom are not on the President's list and 5% of the gross proceeds from the sale of Units to investors whom are on the President's list.

The net proceeds from the Offering will be used to complete Phase 1 and commence Phase 2 of the recommended work program as per the independent geological report of the Las Marias Property (the "Mining Property") prepared in accordance with Regulation 43-101 respecting Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects1  (the "Technical report") and the balance will be used for general working capital.

It is expected that trading of the common shares of the Corporation will resume following the issuance by the Exchange of its Final Exchange Bulletin evidencing final Exchange acceptance and confirmation of the Qualifying Transaction, which is expected to occur on or about September 8, 2017.

A total of 8,435,454 OneCap Shares controlled by the directors of OneCap are held under escrow pursuant to the requirements of the Exchange.

As described in the May 30, 2017 Filing Statement of OneCap, its new directors and officers consist of:


Jean Depatie
