Bay Talent and RSI are at arm’s length. It is currently anticipated that the Company will acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of RSI by way of a plan of arrangement or an amalgamation between RSI and a newly formed subsidiary of the Company, with the amalgamated entity becoming a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. In consideration, the securityholders of RSI will receive securities of the Company. However, it is agreed by both parties that the proposed transaction structure may be revised to accommodate tax considerations, accounting treatments and applicable legal and regulatory requirements. Upon completion of the Combination, it is expected that RSI’s common shares will be de-listed from the Exchange.
As of the date hereof, the number of common shares of the Company to be issued to shareholders of RSI remains subject to the final valuation of the Company. At this stage, the parties agree that the valuation of RSI shall be $7 million and the valuation of the Company shall be calculated based on its 14-day volume weighted average closing share price immediately prior to the execution of the definitive agreement in respect of the Combination multiplied by 0.875 (the final result being the “BTG Valuation Price”), subject to a minimum and maximum BTG Valuation Price for said calculation of $0.32 and $0.35, respectively. Unless otherwise agreed between the parties or required by the TSX Venture Exchange, the Definitive Agreement shall provide for each RSI common share and right to acquire a RSI common share to be exchanged for, respectively, such number of common shares of the Company and right to acquire common shares of the Company in accordance with an exchange ratio to be calculated based on the foregoing valuation.
