(TSXV: RPC) ("Raise" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it is increasing the size of the private placement (the "Private Placement") of debentures of the Company ("Debentures") announced on September 4, 2019 from $700,000 to $900,000. The increase in the Private Placement is to accommodate participation by existing shareholders and non-insiders of the Company in the offering. The Debentures will have a coupon of 6.00% per annum, and will be convertible into units of the Company (each, a "Unit") at a conversion price of $0.11 per Unit. Each Unit will be comprised of one common share and one common share purchase warrant of the Company. The Debentures will mature and be repayable three years from the date of issue.

The Private Placement is expected to close on or about September 30, 2019, concurrently with the closing of the acquisition of 1955554 Alberta Ltd. (the "Acquisition"). Upon the closing of the Acquisition, proceeds from the Private Placement will be used towards successfully growing and monetizing the Company through sourcing, evaluating and negotiating strategic alternatives to generate shareholder value and by leveraging the public market experience of Richard McHardy and Al Stark who will join the board of directors as part of the Acquisition.
