CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 19, 2017) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. ANY FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS RESTRICTION MAY CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF U.S. SECURITIES LAWS.

Vier Capital Corp. ("Vier" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:VIE.P), a capital pool company, announces that the Corporation has applied for and received an extension from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") for the completion of its "Qualifying Transaction" (as such term is defined in the policies of the TSXV). The new deadline date for the completion of the Corporation's Qualifying Transaction (the "New Deadline Date") is January 31, 2018.

The Corporation is a capital pool company and as such it is required to complete a Qualifying Transaction before the New Deadline Date. If the Corporation does not complete a Qualifying Transaction before the New Deadline Date the Corporation's shares will be transferred to the NEX board of the TSXV (the "NEX"). The NEX is a distinct trading board of the TSXV designed for listed issuers which were previously listed on the TSXV or the Toronto Stock Exchange that have been unable to meet the ongoing listing requirements of those markets. If the Corporation transfers to the NEX it must continue to comply with all of the requirements and restrictions of the TSXV Policy 2.4 - Capital Pool Companies ("Policy 2.4"). Pursuant to Policy 2.4, the Corporation will be required to cancel certain seed shares if it transfers to the NEX. For more information regarding the cancelation of certain seed shares please refer to the Corporation's Management Information Circular dated April 1, 2017, a copy of which is available on the Corporation's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.

The Corporation is currently trading on the TSXV and is in the process of identifying and evaluating various assets and businesses with a view to completing a Qualifying Transaction and plans to complete a Qualifying Transaction before the New Deadline Date.
