The Company is also pleased to announce that it has acquired a 3% net profit interest of future hydrocarbon production in the Pirity Block concession located in the Republic of Paraguay. The acquisition is an arm’s length transaction for consideration of US$25,000 and 100,000 warrants (“Pirity Warrants”) where each Pirity Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one additional Common Share for a price of CAD$3.00 per share.
The issuance of the Warrants and Pirity Warrants are subject to approval of the TSXV. The Warrants, Pirity Warrants and the Common Shares issuable on exercise of the Warrants or the Pirity Warrants are each subject to a four-month hold period from the date of issuance in accordance with applicable securities laws.
