In consideration for the Wolf Shares, the Company has agreed to issue an aggregate of 45,000,000 common shares in the capital of the Company (each, a “Share”) to the Wolf shareholders. Each Share issued in connection with the Transaction will be issued at a deemed price of $0.05 per Share, reflecting a premium to the current market price.

Following the closing of the Transaction but prior to the closing of the Private Placement, Optimind is expected to have 143,091,991 Shares issued and outstanding on an undiluted basis. Accordingly, the former Wolf shareholders are expected to own approximately 31.45% of the Shares following the closing of the Transaction but prior to the closing of the Private Placement. No changes to management or to the board of directors of the Company are to occur with the Closing. No finder’s fees are payable in connection with the Transaction.
Concurrent with the closing of the Transaction, the Company intends to close a private placement of units of the Company (the “Units”) for minimum gross proceeds of $500,000, with each Unit comprised of one common share of the Company and one warrant, with each warrant exercisable into a common share of the Company for 3 years at an exercise price of $0.075 per share.
