Pantheon Ventures Receives Conditonal Acceptance and Files Information Circular in Connection With Business Combination

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 11, 2016) - Pantheon Ventures Ltd. ("Pantheon" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:PVX) is pleased to announce that the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") has provided conditional acceptance in respect of Pantheon's proposed business combination (the "Transaction") with Moovly NV ("Moovly") (consisting of the acquisition of all of the issued and outstanding shares of Moovly, details of which are set forth in press releases dated December 7, 2015 and June 24, 2015). Pantheon further announces that its Management Information Circular dated March 30, 2016 (the "Circular"), prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Exchange, has been filed with the Exchange and with applicable Canadian securities regulators and is available under Pantheon's corporate profile at www.sedar.com.

As a condition to the completion of the Transaction, Pantheon proposes to complete a non-brokered private placement of units (each, a "Unit"). The private placement of Units will be completed immediately after Pantheon completes a share consolidation on a 2 new for 3 old basis (the "Share Consolidation"), such Share Consolidation also being a condition precedent to the completion of the Transaction. As a result, Pantheon proposes to issue up to 16,666,666 Units at a price of $0.15 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $2,500,000. Each Unit is comprised of one post-Share Consolidation common share in the capital of Pantheon (a "Common Share") and one post-Share Consolidation common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase a Common Share at a price of $0.25 per share for a period of one year from the date of issuance. All of the securities issued under the private placement are subject to a four month resale restriction.

The completion of the Share Consolidation, the private placement of the Units and the closing of the Transaction are expected to occur as soon as reasonably practicable after Pantheon's upcoming annual and special meeting of shareholders scheduled for May 5, 2016.

Trading of the Common Shares has been halted and will remain halted pending the completion of the Transaction.

Pantheon also announces that its board of directors (the "Board") has adopted an advance notice policy (the "Policy") which includes, among other things, a provision that requires advance notice be given to the Company in circumstances where nominations of persons for election to the Board are made by shareholders of the Company other than pursuant to: (i) a requisition of a meeting made pursuant to the provisions of the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) (the "Act"); or (ii) a shareholder proposal made pursuant to the provisions of the Act.

Additionally, the Policy sets a deadline by which holders of record of common shares of the Company must submit director nominations to the Company prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders, sets forth the information that a shareholder must include in the notice to the Company, and establishes the form in which the shareholder must submit the notice for that notice to be in proper written form. In the case of an annual meeting of shareholders, notice to the Company must be made not less than 30 days nor more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual meeting. However, in the event that the annual meeting is to be held on a date that is less than 40 days after the date on which the first public announcement of the date of the annual meeting was made, notice may be made not later than the close of business on the tenth (10th) day following such public announcement. In the case of a special meeting of shareholders (which is not also an annual meeting) notice to the Company must be made not later than the close of business on the fifteenth (15th) day following the day on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting was made.

The Company will, at the upcoming annual and special meeting of shareholders scheduled for May 5, 2016, seek shareholder approval to amend the articles of the Company to include the provisions of the Policy.

The full text of the Policy is available under the Company's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.
