Plus8 Global Ventures Announces Proposed Private Placement to Support the Development and Implementation of Proposed Acquisition

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Oct. 21, 2015) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Plus8 Global Ventures Ltd. ("Plus8" or the "Company"), (CSE:PGT) announces that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement financing of up to 5,000,000 units at a price of $0.05 per unit to raise gross proceeds of up to $250,000 (the "Financing"). Each unit will consist of one common share and one-half a warrant, with one whole warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at $0.10 for a period of 12 months from closing. All securities issued in connection with the Financing will be subject to a hold period of four months from the date of closing. Certain finder's fees may be paid in connection with the Financing.

As announced on October 15, 2015, the Company has entered into a non-binding letter of intent ("LOI") to purchase all of the assets related to a parcel delivery mobile app technology platform known as "ParcelPal" from a Vancouver based software developer. In accordance with the terms of the LOI, the Company has agreed to acquire all of the assets related to ParcelPal in exchange for the issuance of 2,000,000 common shares of the Company. Although initial due diligence has been completed, the Proposed Transaction remains subject to several closing conditions including execution of a mutually acceptable definitive agreement and obtaining approval from the Canadian Securities Exchange (the "CSE"). The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Financing to support the Company's rollout of ParcelPal and for general working capital.

ParcelPal is compatible with iOS and Android devices and the Proposed Transaction would position the Company to compete in the on-demand delivery service. Assuming completion of the Proposed Transaction, Plus8's initial roll-out plan for ParcelPal would start in Vancouver and soon after would include Calgary, Edmonton, Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa. Individuals are now able to apply to become a delivery person from the ParcelPal.com website or directly using the ParcelPal Driver App which is available in the Apple App Store or Google Play Android store. After completing a screening test, delivery people will utilize the ParcelPal Driver App to engage with customers wanting delivery services using the ParcelPal Deliver App. It is intended that ParcelPal will be used for delivering items such as documents from legal firms, stationary, groceries, take-out food among other personal and business to business items. The Company plans to develop business relationships to provide same-day delivery of merchandise for leading retailers across Canada. The Company also intends to make ParcelPal available in select cities in the United States following the pilot program in Canada.

In addition, the Company also announces that it intends to issue 630,000 common shares at a deemed price of $0.05 per common share in order to settle a debt of $31,500.

The CSE or any other securities regulatory authority has not reviewed and does not accept responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this news release that has been prepared by management.
