The Corporation is also pleased to announce that it has received TSX Venture Exchange acceptance for its name change from "Blue Parrot Energy Inc." to "Ria Resources Corp." and for the consolidation of the Corporation's common shares on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation common share for every twenty (20) pre-consolidation common shares.

As of the date of the Meeting, there were 148,157,143 common shares of the Corporation issued and outstanding. Upon the consolidation being effected the Corporation has approximately 7,407,857 common shares issued and outstanding. No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the consolidation. If, as a result of the consolidation, the holder of shares would otherwise be entitled to a fraction of a share, the number of post-consolidation shares issuable to such shareholder shall be rounded up in the event the said shareholder was entitled to a fractional share equivalent to one-half or more of a post-consolidation share and shall be rounded down in the event the said shareholder was entitled to a fractional share equivalent to less than one-half of a post-consolidation share.
