Digital Shelf Space Corp. and Spara Acquisition One Corp. Announce Closing of Private Placement

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - July 3, 2013) - Digital Shelf Space Corp. (the "Company" or "DSS") (TSX VENTURE:DSS)(OTCQX:DTSRF) and Spara Acquisition One Corp. ("SAO") (TSX VENTURE:SAO.P) are pleased to announce that, subject to the issuance of a Final Exchange Bulletin by the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"), they have completed the previously announced private placement pursuant to which SAO acquired 9,199,991 DSS units (the "Units") at a price of $0.05 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds to DSS of $459,999.55. Each Unit was comprised of one DSS common share (a "Common Share") and one DSS warrant exercisable to acquire a Common Share for three (3) years at an exercise price of $0.10 (a "DSS Warrant"). The Common Shares and DSS Warrants will be subject to a hold period for 4 months from the date of issue.

The transaction constitutes SAO's "qualifying transaction" pursuant to the policies of the Exchange.

Computershare Investor Services Inc., the transfer agent for DSS, distributed the Common Shares and DSS Warrants acquired by SAO to the SAO shareholders of record as of June 25, 2013 on a pro-rata basis as a return of capital. Each shareholder of SAO will receive 0.5297 Common Shares and an equal number of DSS Warrants for every one share of SAO held as of the record date. Of the Common Shares and DSS Warrants distributed to the shareholders of SAO, 5,376,499 Common Shares and an equal number of DSS Warrants have been deposited in escrow with Computershare. These escrowed Common Shares and DSS Warrants replace the SAO shares held by SAO seed investors which were held in escrow pursuant to the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The common shares of SAO will be delisted from the Exchange and SAO will complete a voluntary dissolution as soon as practicable.

Further details of the transaction, the return of capital and the subsequent dissolution of SAO can be found in the management information circular of SAO dated May 14, 2013 which is available at
