Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – April 23, 2021) – 1290448 B.C. Ltd. (the “Company“) announces that it has closed a non-brokered private placement, in which it raised gross proceeds of $100,000.

This placement consisted of 555,556 common shares of the Company at a price of CAD$0.18 per common share (the “Offering“). No finder’s fees were payable in connection with the Offering. The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Offering for general working capital purposes.

The Company further announces that Harvey McKenzie and Neil Novak have been appointed as directors of the Company. In addition, Balu Gopalakrishnan has been appointed CFO and Michael Lerner has been appointed CEO.

Related Party Participation in the Offering

Jennifer Goldman (“Goldman“), and L5 Capital Inc. (“L5“), both insiders of the Company, each subscribed for 50% of the offering, or 277,778 common shares. As insiders of the Company participated in this Offering, it is deemed to be a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“).

The Offering is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 (pursuant to subsection 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(b)) as the Company is not listed on the markets specified in MI 61-101 and neither the fair market value of the common shares distributed to, nor the consideration received from interested parties exceeded $2,500,000.

The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the Offering because the details of the participation therein by related parties of the Company were not settled until shortly prior to closing of the Offering and the Company wished to close on an expedited basis for business reasons.

On behalf of the Board,
Michael Lerner
