VANCOUVER, BC, Feb. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- New Wave Holdings Corp. (the “Company” or “New Wave”) (CSE:SPOR, FWB: 0XMB, OTCPK: TRMNK) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a Letter of Intent (the “LOI”), dated effective February 15, 2022, to acquire all of the outstanding share capital of a private British Columbia corporation (“BCCO”) and indirectly acquire Convergency LLC d/b/a BlockSt, (“BlockSt”) a Florida corporation (the “Proposed Transaction”).
BlockSt was created to compile both a curated marketplace, general NFT marketplace, as well as a social media outlet, into one space. NFT marketplaces are platforms where NFTs can be stored, displayed, traded and in some cases minted (created). These NFTs are minted across numerous different blockchains. The native marketplace that BlockSt has built brings all of these blockchains together. This means that a project built on the Ethereum network, and a project built on another network such as Solana, can be bought and sold in the same place. This concept remains true for every single compatible blockchain. Users also have the ability to bridge these tokens between the different blockchains. To date, any relevant network where NFTs can be minted and stored are compatible with the BlockSt platform.
Proposed Transaction Terms
Under the terms of the LOI, in consideration for all outstanding share capital of BCCO, the Company is expected to issue 23,500,000 common shares (“Consideration Shares”) to the existing security holders of BCCO at a deemed price of $0.75 per Consideration Share. In addition, the Company may issue up to an additional 3,000,000 common shares (the “Performance Shares”) in the event that certain future milestones are achieved by BlockSt. The Consideration Shares and the Performance Shares will not be subject to any hold periods under applicable securities laws.
Completion of the Proposed Transaction remains subject to a number of conditions, including: the satisfactory completion of due diligence; the receipt of any required regulatory approvals; the negotiation of definitive documentation; and the receipt of a third party valuation of BCCO. The Proposed Transaction cannot be completed until these conditions have been satisfied. There can be no guarantees that the Proposed Transaction will be completed as contemplated or at all.
The Company is at arm’s length from BCCO and each of its shareholders. The Proposed Transaction is not expected to constitute a Fundamental Change for the Company (as defined in the policies of the Canadian Securities Exchange), nor is it expected to result in a change of control of the Company, within the meaning of applicable securities laws and the policies of the Canadian Securities Exchange. The Company may pay finders' fees or commissions to eligible arm’s-length third-parties in connection with the Proposed Transaction.
