NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO US NEWSWIRES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
TORONTO, April 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ethereum Capital Inc., (“Ethereum Capital” or the “Company”) a Toronto-based technology company whose objective is to become the central business and investment hub for the Ethereum ecosystem, is pleased to provide an update with respect to its previously announced reverse takeover of Movit Media Corp. (“Movit”) by way of a three-cornered amalgamation (the “Transaction”), and subsequent change of name to “Ether Capital Corporation” (“Ether Capital”). The completion of the transaction will make Ether Capital the first and only publicly traded company focused purely on the Ethereum ecosystem.
On April 13, 2018, Movit held an annual and special meeting at which Movit shareholders voted overwhelmingly in favour of certain matters in connection with the Transaction, approving, among other things, the continuance of the Company from British Columbia to Ontario, the consolidation of the issued and outstanding Movit common shares on the basis of one post-consolidation share for every 12.5 issued and outstanding shares, a change of name to “Ether Capital Corporation”, a new by-law and a share compensation plan.
Movit shareholders also elected the current directors of Ethereum Capital: Michael Conn, Som Seif, Benjamin Roberts, John Ruffolo, Boris Wertz, Liam Horne, Joey Krug, Camillo di Prata and Colleen McMorrow, to serve as the Company’s directors on the close of the Transaction.
Movit and the Company are working towards closing the Transaction. Closing of the Transaction is subject to a number of customary conditions. Subject to receipt of all approvals, including approval from the Aequitas NEO Exchange (the “NEO Exchange”), the Company expects that the Transaction will close on Tuesday, April 17, 2018 and that the common shares of Ether Capital will commence trading on the NEO Exchange under the ticker symbol “ETHC” on Thursday, April 19, 2018.
Immediately following the commencement of trading, Ether Capital will begin implementing its business plan which will initially involve investing the majority of its available funds into Ether, the crypto asset native to the Ethereum ecosystem.
