Nurcapital Corporation Ltd. ("Nurcapital" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NCL.P), a capital pool company listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"), is pleased to announce it has entered into a letter of intent dated November 1, 2016 (the "LOI") with Nurreal Capital Corporation ("Nurreal").
The LOI with Nurreal outlines the principal terms and conditions of a proposed transaction that will result in the Company acquiring from Nurreal a 50% of the issued and outstanding common shares of Erindale Village Living Inc. ("EVLI") and 2,000,0000 preferred shares of EVLI, which owns a condominium project presently called EV Royale Condo Residences (the "Project"). The LOI will be superseded by definitive documentation between the Company and Nurreal that includes customary representations, warranties conditions and covenants for transactions of this nature. Subject to the approval of the Exchange, this proposed transaction will constitute the Company's Qualifying Transaction (the "QT") under Exchange Policy 2.4 - Capital Pool Companies (the "CPC Policy"). The Company intends to list its common shares on the Exchange as a Tier 2 Investment Issuer upon completion of the proposed QT.
In connection with this LOI, which is deemed to be an Agreement in Principle for the Company's QT, trading in the common shares of the Company has been halted pursuant to Exchange policies. Trading will remain halted until, among other things, the Company completes certain regulatory filings in connection with the proposed QT with the Exchange.
Pursuant to the LOI, Nurreal will sell its ownership interest of EVLI, which owns the Project. For the QT, the Company will acquire from Nurreal a 50% of the issued and outstanding common shares of EVLI and 2,000,0000 preferred shares of EVLI, in consideration for 9,900,0000 common shares, based on an appraised value of $2,475,000 for Nurreal's equity interest of EVLI at $0.25 per common share.
Upon completion of the QT, the Company will have 2,000,0000 preferred shares of EVLI, which are entitled to preferential redemption by EVLI for $2,000,000.00 before any profits are dispersed, and 50% of the issued and outstanding common shares of EVLI. Pursuant to a unanimous shareholders agreement with the other shareholders of EVLI, the Company will have decision making authority over EVLI and the Project.
It is currently anticipated that all of the five current directors of the Company will remain with the Company upon completion of the QT. Currently, it is anticipated that the following directors of the Company will continue to serve upon completion of the proposed QT: Salim Ansari (Chair), Sharief Zaman, John Ryan, Nadeem Ansari and Barry M. Polisuk. The backgrounds of the continuing directors of the Company are contained in the Company's Prospectus dated November 26, 2015 which is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
Completion of the QT is subject to completion and execution of all definitive transaction documents (including accuracy of representations and warranties, compliance of covenants and satisfaction of customary conditions) and receipt of all requisite approvals and consents for the QT including without limitation completion of due diligence by the Company, approval by the Exchange for the QT, approval by the board of directors and by the shareholders of the Company, as well as receipt of all other necessary regulatory, corporate and third party approvals and other conditions precedent customary for a transaction such as the proposed QT. There can be no assurance that the proposed QT will be completed as proposed or at all.

The land is going through re-zoning process. To date, Nurreal has made cash investments into the Project of approximately $2,000,000 and has loaned the Project approximately $800,000, which is secured by a second mortgage on the property. The current appraised value of Nurreal's equity portion of the Project is approximately $2,475,000.
Non-Arm's Length Qualifying Transaction
Salim Ansari ("Mr. Ansari Sr."), of Scarborough, Ontario, is the CEO and Director of the Company and holds 600,000 common shares of the Company, representing 16% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company. Nadeem Ansari ("Mr. Ansari Jr."), of Scarborough, Ontario, is a Director of the Company and holds 100,000 common shares of the Company, representing 2% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company. Mr. Ansari Sr. and Mr. Ansari Jr., directly and indirectly, also currently own and control all the issued and outstanding shares of Nurreal and Mr. Ansari Sr. is President and a director of Nurreal and Mr. Ansari Jr. is Secretary and Treasurer of Nurreal, the counterparty of the proposed QT. Accordingly, the proposed QT constitutes a "Non-Arm's Length Qualifying Transaction" within the meaning of Exchange Policy 2.4 and, as such, Majority of the Minority Approval (as defined in Exchange Policy 2.4) is required to approve the proposed QT.
Majority of the Minority Approval means the approval of the proposed QT by the majority of the votes cast by shareholders of the Company, other than:
(a) Non-Arm's Length Parties to the Company, which includes any director or officer of the Company, any person who controls more than 10% of the Company's shares, or any affiliate or associate of any such person(s);
(b) Non-Arm's Length Parties to the QT, including any director or officer of Nurreal, any person who controls more than 10% of Nurreal, or any affiliate or associate of any such person(s).
The proposed QT also constitutes a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Securityholders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). As the Company's common shares are only listed on the Exchange, the Company intends to rely on an exemption to the formal valuation requirement of MI 61-101. For greater certainty, the proposed QT will remain subject to the Majority of the Minority Approval requirement of the Exchange, as outlined above.
Sponsorship of a Qualifying Transaction of a Capital Pool Company is required by the Exchange unless exempt in accordance with the Exchange policies. The Company intends to apply for a waiver of the sponsorship requirement for the proposed QT.
Completion of the proposed QT is subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to, Exchange acceptance and, if applicable pursuant to Exchange requirements, majority of the minority shareholder approval. Where applicable, the proposed QT cannot close until the required approval is obtained. There can be no assurance that the proposed QT will be completed or at all.
Investors are cautioned that, except as disclosed in the management information circular or filing statement to be prepared in connection with the proposed QT, any information released or received with respect to the QT may not be accurate or complete and should not be relied upon. Trading in the securities of a capital pool company should be considered highly speculative.
