Exito Energy II Inc. ("Exito" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:EXI.P) announces that, further to its news release dated October 8, 2016, it has amended and restated the arrangement agreement dated October 7, 2016 (the "Arrangement Agreement") between Exito and Good Life Networks Inc. ("GLN") with respect to a proposed business combination intended to constitute Exito's qualifying transaction, as such term is defined under the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX-V") whereby, Exito will acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares in the capital of GLN in exchange for the issuance of common shares in the capital of Exito and the amalgamation of Exito and GLN shortly thereafter by way of plan of arrangement under the provisions of the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) (the "Proposed Transaction" or the "Arrangement").
The amended and restated arrangement agreement (the "Amended and Restated Agreement") amends, among other things, the timeline for completion of certain milestones pertaining to the Proposed Transaction as set out in the Arrangement Agreement. It is now anticipated that Exito and GLN will each seek to obtain shareholder approvals for matters related to the Proposed Transaction on or before March 23, 2017, and that the Offering (as defined below) and Arrangement will close concurrently or separately on or before April 28, 2017. In addition, the Proposed Transaction is now conditional upon GLN completing a private placement of subscription receipts at a price of not less than $0.25 per subscription receipt to raise gross proceeds of not less than $3,500,000 (the "Offering"), with net proceeds of the Offering to be released from escrow upon completion of the Proposed Transaction. It is anticipated that the net proceeds of the Offering will be used for sales and marketing of GLN's platform and for general working capital purposes.
Further to the Corporation's October 8, 2016 news release announcing the Proposed Transaction, the proposed directors and officers of the resulting issuer following completion of the Arrangement (the "Resulting Issuer") remain unchanged except that the proposed chief financial officer of the Corporation is now currently proposed to be Mr. Konstantin Lichtenwald.
Mr. Lichtenwald specializes in providing corporate finance, valuation, taxation, financial reporting, consulting and other accounting services to both small businesses as well as public commodity resource companies. Mr. Lichtenwald also assists in many aspects of clients' administration, financing and other activities. Mr. Lichtenwald also worked at Ernst & Young GmbH, Germany, in the assurance department. Mr. Lichtenwald earned his bachelor of business administration degree from Pforzheim University, Germany, and holds the professional designation of Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA, CGA), where he is a member of Chartered Professional Accountants of B.C. and Canada. Mr. Lichtenwald has had extensive experience as a controller and CFO of numerous publicly traded and private corporations in several industries.
Upon completion of the Proposed Transaction, it is anticipated that the Resulting Issuer will be listed as a technology issuer, subject to TSX-V approval.
Completion of the Proposed Transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to TSX-V acceptance and if applicable pursuant to TSX-V requirements, majority of the minority shareholder approval. Where applicable, the Proposed Transaction cannot close until the required shareholder approval is obtained. There can be no assurance that the Proposed Transaction will be completed as proposed or at all.
