VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / April 6, 2021 / Dimension Five Technologies Inc. (CSE:DFT) (the “Company“, “Dimension Five” or “D5“) announces that, further to its news releases dated July 14, 2020 and October 23, 2020, the Company has obtained the conditional approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE“) for its re-listing application on CSE Form 2A to be completed following the closing (the “Closing“) of the proposed acquisition (the “Acquisition“) of all of the issued and outstanding shares Aduro Energy Inc. (“Aduro Energy“) from the securityholders of Aduro Energy (the “Vendors“), pursuant to a securities exchange agreement dated October 22, 2020, as amended (the “Agreement“). If completed, the Acquisition, an arm’s length transaction, will constitute a “fundamental change” for the Company under the policies of the CSE. The approval remains subject to a number of conditions, including Closing, issuance of D5 securities under the Agreement and meeting applicable escrow requirements of the CSE.
On April 5, 2021, the Company, Aduro Energy and the Vendors agreed to amend the Agreement to: (1) remove certain requirements under the Agreement in respect of two business milestone protection plans (the “Plans“), including a condition requiring entry into a restricted stock agreement in accordance with the Plans; (2) remove the right of D5 to grant up to 10,000,000 stock options to directors, officers and consultants of D5 on Closing; and (3) add the requirement for D5 to issue an additional 8,440,087 common share purchase warrants of D5 on the Closing as part of the consideration to be issued to the Vendors.
On April 5, 2021, the Company obtained the written consent of a majority of its shareholders in respect of the Acquisition, as required under the policies of the CSE.
On Closing, the Company intends to complete a 3:1 consolidation of its issued and outstanding common shares (the “Shares“). The Company also intends to change its name to “Aduro Clean Technologies Inc.” and, if approved for re-listing by the CSE, the Company’s Shares will be re-listed under the symbol ACT. Trading in the Company’s Shares was halted in connection with the news release on July 14, 2020 announcing the letter of intent in respect of the Acquisition. Trading in the Shares will remain halted pending Closing, the review of the Acquisition by the CSE and satisfaction of any remaining conditions of the CSE for resumption of trading.
In connection with the proposed Acquisition and pursuant to the Agreement, the Company has advanced Aduro Energy a bridge loan in the aggregate amount of $500,000 which is secured by the assets and intellectual property of Aduro Energy. Upon closing of the Acquisition, the bridge loan will become an inter-company loan.
None of the securities to be issued in connection with the Acquisition will be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act“), and none of them may be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the 1933 Act. This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any state where such offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful.
