Rodinia Announces Change of Business to an Investment Company

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 24, 2015) - Rodinia Lithium Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RM) ("Rodinia" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it will be pursuing a change of business to a tier 2 investment company (the "Proposed COB") under the rules of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"). A special meeting of shareholders is expected to be called prior to April 30, 2016 to approve the Proposed COB (the "Special Meeting").

Proposed COB

After a thorough evaluation of the Company's existing resources and a review of strategic options for the Company generally, the Company determined to refocus its business operations from a "resource issuer" to an "investment issuer". The board of directors of the Company (the "Board") believes that its network of business contacts, the depth of experience of its management team and its overall entrepreneurial approach will enable it to identify and capitalize upon investment opportunities as an "investment issuer".

In connection with the Proposed COB, the Company intends to adopt an investment policy (the "Investment Policy") to govern its investment activities and investment strategy. A summary of the material terms of the Investment Policy will be disclosed in due course and a copy of the Investment Policy will be posted on the Company's profile at www.sedar.com.

Shareholders' Meeting

When the Special Meeting is called, the Company will issue a notice of meeting and management information circular, which will be mailed to shareholders and posted on the Company's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com. A majority of shareholders present at the Special Meeting must approve the Proposed COB for it to proceed.
