Aquarius AI Announces TSX Venture Exchange Approval to Proceed with Share Consolidation
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - July 6, 2020) - Aquarius AI Inc. (TSXV: AQUA) (FSE: 4G5) ("AQUA", or the "Company") announces that the TSX Venture Exchange has approved the consolidation (the "Consolidation") of its issued and outstanding common shares (the "Common Shares") on the basis of one (1) new Common Share (a "Post-Consolidation Common Share") for every ten (10) currently-outstanding Common Shares ("Pre-Consolidation Common Shares"), which was originally announced in the Company's news release dated June 5, 2020.
The Consolidation will take effect with the Common Shares trading on a post-Consolidation basis beginning at the open of markets on July 8, 2020 under new CUSIP number 03842U208 and new ISIN number CA03842U2083. Currently, the Company has 101,595,538 Pre-Consolidation Common Shares issued and outstanding. Assuming no other change in the issued capital of the Company, it is expected upon completion of the Consolidation, the Company will have approximately 10,159,553 Post-Consolidation Common Shares issued and outstanding, subject to rounding. Any fractional shares equal or greater to one-half resulting from the Consolidation will be rounded up to the next whole number. Otherwise, the fractional share will be rounded down to the next whole number. In addition, the number, exercise price or exchange basis of all warrants and stock options will be adjusted, as applicable, to reflect the ten-for-one Consolidation. The Company's name and trading symbol will not change as a result of the Consolidation.
A letter of transmittal will be sent out to registered shareholders of the Company by Computershare Investor Services Inc. ("Computershare") the Company's transfer agent. Registered shareholders must submit their respective share certificate(s) representing Pre-Consolidation Common Shares to Computershare in accordance with the instructions in the letter of transmittal in order to receive share certificates representing their Post-Consolidation Common Shares. Pre-Consolidation Common Shares held under DRS Advices will be automatically adjusted, in accordance with the ratio, to reflect the number of Post-Consolidation Common Shares.
The Board of Directors of the Company believes that establishing a higher market price for the Company's common shares will provide the Company with greater flexibility to arrange the financings it requires as it continues to transition its business.
