Red River Capital Announces Proposed Qualifying Transaction
Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - June 2, 2020) - Red River Capital Corp. (TSXV: XBT.P) ("Red River" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce details concerning its proposed arm's length qualifying transaction (the "Proposed Transaction") involving a proposed business combination with 1739001 Alberta Ltd. o/a Bitcoin Solutions ("Bitcoin Solutions"), a private company incorporated under the laws of the Province of Alberta.
Established in 2013, Bitcoin Solutions is a leading cryptocurrency ATM machine operator in Canada with a national network of Bitcoin ATMs.
Red River entered into a letter of intent with Bitcoin Solutions dated June 1, 2020, pursuant to which Red River intends to acquire all of the issued and outstanding securities of Bitcoin Solutions (the "Bitcoin Solutions Securities"), effected by way of an exempt take-over bid, share exchange or similar transaction pursuant to the terms of a definitive agreement to be entered into by Red River and Bitcoin Solutions (the "Definitive Agreement"). For convenience, Red River as it will exist after completion of the Proposed Transaction, is sometimes referred to herein as the "Resulting Issuer".
In connection with the Proposed Transaction, it is anticipated that at least 80,000,000 Red River common shares will be issued to Bitcoin Solutions securityholders in exchange for their Bitcoin Solutions Securities. The Proposed Transaction values the Red River common shares at $0.12 per share. It is estimated that there will be at least 85.6 million common shares of the Resulting Issuer issued and outstanding immediately following closing of the Proposed Transaction, with former Red River shareholders holding approximately 5% of such common shares and former Bitcoin Solutions securityholders holding approximately 95% of such common shares.
Closing of the Proposed Transaction is not subject to a financing condition, however Bitcoin Solutions may complete an equity financing prior to the closing of the Proposed Transaction at a price of no less than $1.07 per Bitcoin Solutions share. The financing may be completed on a brokered or non-brokered basis, or a combination of the two. As of the date of this press release, no broker has been engaged by Bitcoin Solutions.
Upon completion of the Proposed Transaction, Red River will change its name to The Bitcoin Well Inc. Concurrent with the completion of the Proposed Transaction, it is expected that all directors and officers of Red River will resign and be replaced by Bitcoin Solutions nominees.
It is intended that the Proposed Transaction, when completed, will constitute the Corporation's "Qualifying Transaction" in accordance with Policy 2.4 of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"). A more comprehensive news release will be issued by the Corporation disclosing details of the Proposed Transaction, including financial information respecting Bitcoin Solutions, the names and backgrounds of all persons who will constitute insiders of The Bitcoin Well, and information respecting sponsorship, once an agreement has been finalized and certain conditions have been met, including:
i) approval of the Proposed Transaction by the board of directors of the Corporation;
ii) satisfactory completion of due diligence; and
iii) execution of the definitive agreement.
Shareholder approval is not required with respect to the Proposed Transaction under the rules of the Exchange. However, shareholder approval will be required to change the name of the Corporation. In the event a final agreement is not reached, the Corporation will notify shareholders. Trading in the common shares of the Corporation has been halted and is not expected to resume trading until the Proposed Transaction is completed or until the Exchange receives the requisite documentation to resume trading. If the Proposed Transaction is completed the Corporation expects to be listed on the Exchange as a technology issuer.
