Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - December 22, 2020) - DeepSpatial Inc. (CSE: AYL) (formerly Aylen Capital Inc.) ("DeepSpatial" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced transaction (the "Transaction") which involved: (i) the acquisition of all of the issued and outstanding securities in the capital of Loc8 Corp. (now named DeepSpatial (Ontario) Inc.) ("Loc8") by way of a three cornered amalgamation, pursuant to which, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company amalgamated with Loc8 (the "Loc8 Acquisition"); (ii) the sale of Grapevine Analytics Inc. to RDH Inc. (a corporation controlled by the family of the late John Pennal); and (iii) immediately prior to completion of the Loc8 Acquisition, the consolidation of the common shares of the Company (the "Common Shares") on a one (1) new share for four (4) old share basis (the "Consolidation") and the payment of a special dividend of approximately $0.02 per Common Share on a pre-Consolidation basis to the holders of record on December 18, 2020.

Pursuant to the Loc8 Acquisition, each shareholder of Loc8 received one (1) post-Consolidation Common Share for each Loc8 share held, resulting in the issuance of 87,794,000 post-Consolidation Common Shares to the shareholders of Loc8.

The Company's unique technology unites business data with its operations to help clients understand customer personas (to distinguish and classify personalized product preferences and stock keeping unit relativity); predict inventory consumption and link it to effective supply chains and warehouse planning; have insight into its already existing clientele and use this to locate potential customers; and to promote targeted pricing and discount strategies on a geospatial basis.
