Blue Vista Technologies Inc. Amends Articles to Effect Change of Name, Convert Preference Shares, Consolidate Common Shares and Create Special Shares

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 18, 2014) - Blue Vista Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BV.H) ("Blue Vista" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has filed articles of amendment ("Articles") to change its name to "Arbitrage Exploration Inc.", convert its Class A and Class B preference shares (collectively, the "Preference Shares") on a one hundred (100) for one (1) basis and consolidate its common shares (the "Common Shares") on a four (4) for one (1) basis. A majority of the shareholders of the Company approved, among other things, the name change, share conversion and share consolidation at the annual and special meeting of the Company held on December 30, 2010.

Name Change

Pursuant to the Articles, the Company has changed its name from Blue Vista Technologies Inc. to "Arbitrage Exploration Inc.".

Conversion of Preference Shares

The Preference Shares will be converted to Common Shares (the "Share Conversion") by converting: (i) each one hundred (100) of the issued and outstanding Class A preference shares into one (1) Common Share; and (ii) each one hundred (100) of the issued and outstanding Class B preference shares into one (1) Common Share.

The Share Conversion of the 8,000,000 outstanding Class A preference shares and the 1,600,000 outstanding Class B preference shares will result in the Company issuing an additional 96,000 Common Shares to the former holders of the Preference Shares.

Consolidation of Common Shares

After giving effect to the Share Conversion, and prior to the consolidation of the Common Shares on a 1:4 basis (the "Consolidation"), the Company will have 44,630,435 Common Shares issued and outstanding. The Consolidation will reduce the number of outstanding Common Shares from 44,630,435 to approximately 11,157,608. No fractional Common Shares will be issued pursuant to the Consolidation and any fractional shares that would have otherwise been issued have been rounded down to the nearest whole number. The change in the number of issued and outstanding Common Shares that would result from the Consolidation would not materially affect any shareholder's percentage ownership in the Company, although such ownership would be represented by a smaller number of Common Shares.

The effective date of the Consolidation is expected to be on or about December 17, 2014.

Creation of special shares

The Company also reports that, pursuant to the Articles, the Company has increased its authorized capital by creating an unlimited number of special shares (the "Special Shares"), issuable in series. The Special Shares may be issued from time to time in one or more series, each series consisting of the number of shares and having the designation, rights, privileges, restrictions and conditions which the board of directors of the Company determines in accordance with the Articles prior to the issuance thereof.
