(TSXV: PINH.P) (the “Company”), a Capital Pool Company, as defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”), is pleased to announce that, in connection with its previously announced “Qualifying Transaction” (the “Transaction”) pursuant to TSXV Policy 2.4 - Capital Pool Companies with Halcones Precious Metals Inc. (“Halcones”), it has filed articles of amendment to change its name to “Halcones Precious Metals Corp.” (the “Name Change”) and consolidate its issued and outstanding common shares (“Common Shares”) on the basis of 0.4716981 post-consolidation Common Shares for each pre-consolidation Common Share (the “Consolidation”). The Name Change and Consolidation were approved by shareholders of the Company at its annual and special meeting held on April 14, 2022. In connection with the Name Change and Consolidation, the Company has reserved a new CUSIP (40539W105) and ISIN (CA40539W1059).
