No fractional shares will be issued as any fractional share will be rounded down to the nearest 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.
Following the completion of the Transaction, and the concurrent Name Change and Consolidation, the common shares of the resulting entity (the "Resulting Issuer Shares") are expected to trade under the symbol "KUYA". The new CUSIP number will be 50149R107 and the new ISIN number will be CA50149R1073. Currently, a total of 55,773,234 common shares of the Company are issued and outstanding and, after the Consolidation the Company will have approximately 5,577,323 Resulting Issuer Shares issued and outstanding. Following completion of the Transaction, after giving effect to the approximately 26,763,417 Resulting Issuer Shares issued to the former Kuya shareholders, the Company will have approximately 32,340,740 Resulting Issuer Shares issued and outstanding.
The Consolidation is subject to the approval of the CSE and, once the Consolidation is approved, the new CUSIP number and post-Consolidation Resulting Issuer Shares will be sent out to registered shareholders of the Company by the Company's transfer agent, Computershare Investor Services Inc. The Company anticipates the effective date of the Consolidation and Name Change to take place on the completion date of the Transaction.

About Kuya Silver Corp.
Kuya is a privately held Canadian-based silver-focused mining company, earning into an 80% interest in the Bethania Silver Mine, located in Central Peru. Bethania was in production until 2016, toll-milling its ore at various other concentrate plants in the region, and Kuya's plan is to implement an expansion and construct a concentrate plant at site before restarting operations. Bethania produced silver-lead and zinc concentrates from the run of mine material until being placed on care and maintenance due to market conditions and lack of working capital. It is expected that shortly after the closing of the Transaction and Concurrent Financing, Kuya will close its acquisition of the 80% interest in the Bethania Silver Mine.
