TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 10, 2017) -


Revelstoke Equity Inc. ("REQ" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:REQ.P), a capital pool company, wishes to announce that, further to its press release dated January 5, 2017, on May 8, 2017, Jet Power & Controls Ltd. ("Jet Power") completed a brokered private placement of units of Jet Power (the "Units") for gross proceeds of $1,501,000 (the "Offering").

Brokered Equity Financing

The Offering was conducted with Mackie Research Capital Corporation ("MRCC") and Hampton Securities Limited ("Hampton" and together with MRCC, the "Agents") pursuant to which the Agents acted as co-agents and co-bookrunners. 5,003,334 Units were sold at a purchase price of $0.30 per Unit, with each Unit consisting of one common share of Jet Power (the "Offered Shares") and 1/2 of one common share purchase warrant of Jet Power (the "Warrants") for a total issuance of 5,003,334 Offered Shares and 2,501,667 Warrants. Each whole Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one additional common share of Jet Power at an exercise price of $0.50 per share for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance. Upon completion of the Proposed Transaction (defined below), the Warrants shall be subject to an accelerated expiration at the option of the Resulting Issuer (defined below) should the Offered Shares trade at or above $0.75 per share for a period of 20 non-consecutive trading days. Upon the triggering of such accelerated expiration, the Warrants shall expire on the 20th business day following the date notice of the accelerated expiration is sent to shareholders. Currently there is no public market for the Offered Shares.

Jet Power paid a $30,630 cash commission and issued 263,328 nontransferable compensation options (the "Compensation Options") to the Agents. Each Compensation Option is exercisable for one Unit of Jet Power at an exercise price of $0.30 per Unit, with such Units having the same terms and conditions as the Units sold in the Offering.

Update on the Proposed Transaction

REQ and Jet Power entered into a binding letter of intent (the "LOI") dated January 3, 2017 with Jet which outlines the general terms and conditions of a proposed transaction (the "Proposed Transaction") that will result in REQ acquiring all of the issued and outstanding equity shares of Jet Power in exchange for common shares of REQ. The Proposed Transaction will constitute the Company's qualifying transaction (the "Qualifying Transaction") pursuant to Policy 2.4 - Capital Pool Companies (the "Policy") of the Exchange. Upon completion of the Proposed Transaction, REQ will continue on with the business of Jet Power (the Company after completion of the Proposed Transaction is referred to herein as the "Resulting Issuer").

REQ and Jet Power are continuing to work together to execute a definitive agreement (the "Definitive Agreement") to supersede the LOI and which will include representations, warranties, conditions and covenants typical for a transaction of this nature. The Proposed Transaction is subject to, among other things, receipt of the requisite shareholder approval of Jet Power and REQ, final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") and standard closing conditions, including the conditions described below.

None of the securities to be issued pursuant to the Proposed Transaction have been or will be registered under the U.S. Securities Act, or any state securities laws, and any securities issued pursuant to the Proposed Transaction are anticipated to be issued in reliance upon available exemptions from such registration requirements pursuant to Section 3(a)(10) of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable exemptions under state securities laws. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities.
