TORONTO, ON – ARHT Media Inc. (formerly Vast Exploration Inc., the “Corporation” or “ARHT”) (TSX Venture Exchange “ART”) announces that the Corporation has completed its reverse-takeover transaction (the “RTO”) with Delebrity Inc. (“Delebrity”) and obtained final acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) for the listing of its common shares. ARHT’s common shares will begin trading on the Exchange on October 17, 2014 at market open under the ticker symbol “ART” as a Tier 2 Technology Issuer.
The Corporation effected the closing of the RTO pursuant to an amalgamation agreement (the “Amalgamation Agreement”) among the Corporation, its wholly-owned subsidiary and Delebrity Inc. (“Delebrity”), pursuant to which the Corporation acquired all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Delebrity by way of amalgamation between its wholly-owned subsidary and Delebrity and following which the amalgamated company became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Corporation. Under the terms of the Amalgamation Agreement, all of the outstanding Delebrity common shares were exchanged for common shares of the Corporation on a one for one basis, as more particularly described in the Amalgamation Agreement, such that former shareholders of Delebrity continued as shareholders of the Corporation. As a result 44,193,755 common shares were issued by the Corporation to former Delebrity shareholders, on a non-diluted basis. Included in the 44,193,755 common shares issued to securityholders of Delebrity were 12,318,755 common shares issued in connection with a non-brokered private placement completed in Delebrity on April 25, 2014. A commission of $92,500 and 370,000 warrants, which warrants were also exchanged for the warrants of the Corporation having the same terms on closing, were paid to in connection with the financing. The warrants are exercisable until April 25, 2015 and have a strike price of $0.25.
A total of 3,750,000 options of Delebrity will be exchanged for 3,750,000 options of ARHT with a strike price of $0.10. The Corporation will also be issuing 1,960,000 new options to certain officers, directors and consultants of ARHT effective October 15, 2014. The options are exercisable at $0.25 per option and shall expire on October 15, 2019. The options shall vest immediately subject to the four month regulatory hold period. The grant of options remains subject to regulatory approval.
Further detailed disclosure is contained in the Corporation’s Amended Filing Statement, which is available under the Corporation’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
Paul Duffy, CEO of ARHT commented, “We are pleased that the company will soon be trading on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol ART. This is an exciting time for ARHT as the company enters Q4 and looks forward to the first part of 2015 with a number of announcements about the company’s unique, and patented, HumaGram™ technology. We look forward to this next phase in our corporate development.”
