Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - October 15, 2021) - Ankh Capital Inc. (TSXV: ANKH) (the "Corporation" or "Ankh"), is pleased to announce that it has completed its initial public offering (the "Offering") today of 10,000,000 common shares in the capital of the Corporation (the "Common Shares") at a purchase price of $0.10 per Common Share by way of a prospectus for gross proceeds of $1,000,000.
The Corporation is a Capital Pool Company (as defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange")). To date, the Corporation has not conducted operations of any kind and has not entered into an "Agreement in Principle", as such term is defined in Exchange Policy 2.4 - Capital Pool Companies (the "Policy").
When combined with the Corporation's cash proceeds raised prior to the Offering ($281,000 in prior sales as more fully described in the Corporation's prospectus dated August 27, 2021), the Corporation has raised total gross proceeds of $1,281,000 and has a total of 15,620,000 Common Shares issued and outstanding, of which 6,220,000 Common Shares are being held in escrow (in addition to 1,562,000 stock options). The net proceeds will be used to identify and evaluate assets or businesses for acquisition with a view to completing a "Qualifying Transaction" under the Capital Pool Company program of the Exchange.

For its services, the Agent received a corporate finance fee, a commission in the amount equal to 10% of the gross proceeds of the Offering and additional consideration comprised of agent's share purchase options in an aggregate amount equal to 10% of the Common Shares issued pursuant to the Offering registered in the name of the Agent or as the Agent may otherwise direct (the "Agent's Options"). Each Agent's Option will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one common share in the capital of the Corporation (each, a "Common Share") at an exercise price of $0.10 per Common Share, expiring on the date that is sixty (60) months from the date of the listing and posting of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange.
