Brilliant Announces Date of Special Meeting of Shareholders

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 27, 2015) - Brilliant Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BLT) (the "Company" or "Brilliant") is pleased to announce that it will hold a special meeting of its shareholders on June 25, 2015 (the "Meeting") for the purpose of approving (i) a return of capital to its shareholders of $0.145 per share (the "Return of Capital"), (ii) a change of business to an investment company (the "Proposed COB") under the rules of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"), (iii) a change of the name of the Company to "FCF Capital Inc." and (iv) amendments to its stock option plan and deferred share unit plan (the "DSU Plan"). The record date for the purpose of determining holders of common shares entitled to receive notice of and attend the Meeting and vote thereat is May 21, 2015. The management information circular (the "Circular") relating to the Meeting provides significant disclosure with respect to the matters to be submitted to the Meeting and has been filed under the Company's profile at

Return of Capital

The record date for the shareholders entitled to the Return of Capital is expected to be June 25, 2015, the date of the Meeting; and the distribution of the Return of Capital is expected to occur on July 7, 2015. If the Return of Capital is approved at the Meeting, the stated capital account maintained by the Company in respect of the common shares will be reduced by an amount equal to $0.145 multiplied by the number of common shares issued and outstanding on the record date for the Return of Capital. The aggregate of the Return of Capital is expected to be approximately $21.69 million. Following the Return of Capital, the Board believes that the Company will have sufficient working capital to meet its strategic objectives.

The Return of Capital will be contingent on the completion of the Proposed COB.

It is expected that the Return of Capital will be treated as a tax-free return of paid-up capital for purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada). However, depending on circumstances, the Return of Capital may give rise to a capital gain for a particular shareholder to the extent the Return of Capital is greater than such shareholder's adjusted cost base in the common shares. Further information is set out in the Circular.

Summary of the Proposed COB

The Company announced its intention to proceed with the Proposed COB via news release dated April 10, 2015. If completed, the Proposed COB will constitute a "Change of Business" under Policy 5.2 of the TSXV and is conditional upon, among other things, the Company obtaining TSXV and shareholder approval.

Upon completion of the Proposed COB, the Company's primary focus will be to seek superior returns by making investments in equity, debt or other securities of publicly traded or private companies or other entities, providing financing in exchange for pre-determined royalties or distributions and the acquisition of all or part of one or more businesses, portfolios or other assets.

If the Proposed COB does not obtain regulatory and shareholder approval, the Company will not proceed with the Return of Capital. In such circumstances, the Board will reconsider the strategic objectives of the Company and report back to the shareholders. As a condition to obtaining TSXV approval, the Company will undertaken that at least 50% of its available funds will be allocated to at least two investments by May 21, 2016.

Name Change

The Company proposes to change its name to "FCF Capital Inc." following the Proposed COB.

Amendment of Plans

The Company has adopted, ratified and approved an amended and restated stock option plan which will replace the current stock option plan last approved and ratified at the annual general and special shareholders' meeting of the Company held on March 18, 2015.

For further details and information about the amendments to the DSU Plan and the amended and restated stock option plan, please see the Circular.
