VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Prospect Park Capital Corp. (the “Company”) (TSXV:PPK), a public investment issuer, is pleased to announce it has entered into a $150,000 principal amount convertible debenture with Diitalk Communications Inc. (“Diitalk”) pursuant to which the Company has agreed to lend Diitalk $150,000 for 24 months at a rate of 10.0% per annum payable semi-annually (the “Proposed Debt Investment”). At the option of the Company the principal amount and accrued and unpaid interest under the debenture is convertible into common shares of Diitalk at $0.02 per share. Diitalk currently has 75,321,388.33 common shares issued and outstanding.
None of the Non-Arm’s Length Parties (as such term is defined by the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”)) of the Company have any interest in Diitalk and the Proposed Debt Investment is not a “related party transaction” as such term is defined by Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions and is not subject to Policy 5.9 of the Exchange.
In addition, as a result of the Exchange taking the position that the acquisition of Diitalk by the Company announced on March 2, 2021 (the “Proposed Equity Investment”) would be treated by the Exchange as a Change of Business (as such term is defined by the Exchange), the parties have mutually agreed to terminate the Proposed Equity Investment. The parties are trying to restructure the Proposed Equity Investment so as not to be deemed to be a Change of Business by the Exchange and will update the market when and if this is achieved.
Trading in the common shares of the Company on the Exchange will re-commence on April 15, 2021.
Additional information will be released by the Company as it occurs. There can be no assurance that any investments (including the Proposed Equity Investment) will be completed as proposed or at all or the timing of any investments.
