(MENAFN- Baystreet.ca) Vancouver BC based Hello Pal International Inc. (CSE:HP Frankfurt:27H OTC:HLLPF) announced that it has entered into a definitive purchase agreement with a company controlled by Shanghai Yitang Data Technology Co. Ltd. to acquire an initial 51% interest in 12,500 mining rigs dedicated to mining Dogecoin (DOGE) and Litecoin (LTC), with an option to increase such interest to 100%. The transaction previously announced by the Company on March 8, 2021 has been amended such that the Company will no longer acquire an interest in a single cryptocurrency mining facility, but rather will enter into a guaranteed services agreement with Yitang to ensure that its Mining Assets are hosted across multiple locations so as to ensure diversification of risk against potential future local governmental regulations that may adversely affect cryptocurrency mining. Pursuant to the Guaranteed Services Agreement, Yitang will guarantee the hosting of the Mining Assets as well as power supply and will provide management and hosting services.
The consideration for the Transaction is C$1,500,000 payable in cash and 1,800,000 units of the Company valued at C$2,250,000. Each Consideration Unit will have a deemed value of C$1.25 and consist of one common share of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant of the Company (each whole common share purchase warrant, a "Consideration Warrant"). Each Consideration Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price of C$2.00 for a period of two years from the date of issue.
For a period of two years following the completion of the Transaction, the Company will have the option to acquire a further 49% interest in the Mining Assets (for a total interest of 100%) for an additional payment, as to half in cash and half in Common Shares (the number of Common Shares to be determined in the context of the market), where the valuation of the Mining Assets is dependent on their net profit over a 12-month period immediately preceding the date on which this option is exercised, multiplied by a formulated multiplier.
Completion of the Transaction is expected to occur in May 2021 and is subject to certain conditions, including but not limited to: (a) the Company and Yitang entering into the Guaranteed Services Agreement; (b) the final issue of a due diligence report by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu on the Mining Assets in a form satisfactory to the Company; (c) the receipt of all necessary approvals from the Company's board of directors; (d) the receipt of all required consents and approvals, including without limitation, approval by the Canadian Securities Exchange; and (d) satisfaction of the escrow release conditions in connection with the private placement of subscription receipts.
The previously announced "commercially reasonably efforts" private placement of subscription receipts led by Canaccord Genuity Corp. is now expected to close on or around April 22, 2021 or such other date as Canaccord and the Company may agree. See news release dated March 8, 2021 for further details regarding the private placement.
"Hello Pal is pleased to have taken the next step forward with an executed definitive agreement. We are also elated to have Deloitte provide the Due Diligence which helps validate the company's position in the Litecoin - Dogecoin environment," said KL Wong, Founder and Chairman of the Company.
Yitang, a leading provider of digital wallet services with over US$70 million in crypto-assets under management, is also helping the Company to revamp and reintroduce its digital wallet as well as its own digital token called "Palto". Upon completion of the revamp, the Company's current virtual tokens used on its livestreaming platform is expected to be fully enhanced and backed by blockchain technology, with Palto and popular cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and Dogecoin accepted throughout the platform. First launched in 2018 (see news release of the Company dated October 9th, 2018), Palto (PLT) is a utility token that will be used across the entire Hello Pal suite of apps in order to allow for the borderless transfer of value between Hello Pal users across the world.
