Pursuant to the terms of the Letter Agreement and subject to completion of satisfactory due diligence and receipt of all necessary regulatory and TSX-V approvals, the proposed acquisition of Agrimarine will qualify as AXEA's "Qualifying Transaction" as defined in TSX-V Policy 2.4.

There can be no assurance that the proposed transaction will be completed as proposed or at all. In addition, sponsorship of the proposed transaction may be required in accordance with TSX-V policies, but has not yet been obtained.

Trading of the common shares of AXEA has been halted in connection with the dissemination of this press release, and will recommence at such time as the TSX-V may determine, having regard to the completion of certain requirements pursuant to TSX-V Policy 2.4.
