The LOI outlines the general terms and conditions pursuant to which the Corporation and all its constituent companies intend to complete a transaction that will result in a reverse take-over of the Corporation by the security holders of Daizee and is intended to constitute the “qualifying transaction” of the Corporation under Policy 2.4 – Capital Pool Companies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV“).

The LOI contemplates the Corporation and Daizee entering into a definitive agreement (the “Definitive Agreement“) prior to May 15, 2020 (or such other date as may be agreed to by the parties). The Transaction is conditional upon the parties completing successful due diligence reviews of each other, the completion by Daizee (with the assistance of Navion) of an interim financing yielding at least $1.5 million in gross proceeds, requisite regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSXV, and standard closing conditions, including the approval of the Transaction by directors of each of the parties Corporation and those conditions outlined below.
