2.Amalco reorganized its capital within the meaning of Section 86 of the Tax Act such that each Amalco shareholder disposed of all of the Amalco shareholder’s Amalco Shares to Amalco and in consideration therefor, Amalco issued or distributed to the Amalco shareholder:

-changing the identifying name of the issued and unissued Amalco New Common Shares from “Class B Common shares” to “Common shares”.

Following the Arrangement and Concurrent Financing (as defined below), there were approximately 36,169,628 Amalco New Common Shares outstanding and former holders of Dajin shares held approximately 53% of the issued and outstanding Amalco New Common Shares at closing of the Arrangement.

Updates to Board of Directors and Management

 

Amalco’s board of directors has been reconstituted to include Christopher Brown, Sameer Uplenchwar, Frank C. Busch, Robert Verhelst, and Brian Findlay as approved by the shareholders of Dajin at the annual general and special meeting of shareholders held on November 19, 2021.

Concurrent Financing

Each Subscription Receipt entitled the holder thereof to acquire HeliosX Common Share, and each HeliosX Common Share was exchanged 0.63 of one Amalco Share (equivalent to $0.70 per Amalco share).

 

It is anticipated that the proceeds of the Concurrent Financing (after deduction of costs of fees incurred) will be used to integrate the businesses of HeliosX and Dajin and for general corporate purposes and future working capital. Although the Company intends to use the proceeds of the Concurrent Financing as described above, the actual allocation of proceeds may vary from the uses set forth above, depending on future operations or unforeseen events or business opportunities.
