(TSX-V: AXN.P) announced on February 9th that, “it has closed its previously announced qualifying transaction (the “Transaction”) with DMG Blockchain Solutions Inc. (“DMG Blockchain”), a full service blockchain and cryptocurrency company. Prior to the Transaction, the Company was a capital pool company (as defined under the policies of the Exchange, as defined below), and had not commenced commercial operations and had no assets other than cash. The Transaction constituted the Company’s “Qualifying Transaction”, as such term is defined in Policy 2.4 of the Exchange.

The Transaction consisted of the acquisition by the Company of all of the issued and outstanding common shares in the capital of DMG Blockchain by way of a three-cornered amalgamation, pursuant to which a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company amalgamated with DMG Blockchain and each DMG Blockchain shareholder received one (1) common share in the capital of the Company for each DMG Blockchain common share held for a total issuance of 46,651,995 common shares of the Company. As part of the Transaction, the Company changed its name from Aim Explorations Ltd. to “DMG Blockchain Solutions Inc.” Trading in the common shares of the Company is expected to begin on the Exchange on or about February 13, 2018 under the symbol “DMGI”.

Following the completion of the Transaction, DMG Blockchain is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, and the Company meets the listing requirements for a “Tier 2” technology issuer on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”). The Company will continue the business of DMG Blockchain (described in further detail below).

Effective upon the closing of the Transaction, as a result of the reverse takeover of the Company by the shareholders of DMG Blockchain and to align the financial years of the Company to that of DMG Blockchain, the financial year of the Company has been changed from March 31 of each year to September 30 of each year.”
