Nurcapital will change its name to "Green Sky Labs Inc." (on a post-Closing basis, the "Resulting Issuer"); and
The holders of GSL common shares will receive one Nurcapital Common Share for each common share of GSL held by them, and the common shares of GSL will subsequently be cancelled.
The Resulting Issuer's business objective will be to carry on the business of GSL by engaging in technology incubation and commercialize disruptive technologies in the biotech and related industries through strategic partnerships, mergers and acquisitions as well as public offerings. The Closing of the Proposed Qualifying Transaction is expected to occur in Q2/Q3 2021.
