VANCOUVER B.C., CANADA, Dec. 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — iTokk, Inc. (OTC PINK: IKTO) (the “Company”), is pleased to announce that, as part of its strategic re-positioning the Company has signed a Letter of Intent to acquire Water Street Profile Services Inc. (“The Profile”) a Vancouver, British Columbia based Coworking business club.
The Profile currently operates three Coworking locations in Vancouver, BC with over 34,000 square feet of operating Coworking space. The Profile is owned and operated by Kevin Penstock. Mr. Penstock is also the CEO and majority shareholder of the Company.
As the number of freelancers and remote workers continue to rise, the shift towards Coworking shows no signs of slowing down. The Coworking industry offers something to startups that traditional solutions cannot, which is the ability for office space to scale with the company’s growth both seamlessly and flawlessly. With over 15,000 Coworking spaces around the world, this billion dollar industry is expected to continue to grow at a 12% CAGR over the next 5 years. Interaction with other workers has emerged as one of the most influential aspects of this growing trend, causing positive impact on workers’ mental health and productivity.
Kevin Penstock, CEO of the Company, stated, “The Coworking market is being fully embraced by entrepreneurs and companies looking to expand.” Mr. Penstock further commented, “With the signing of the letter of intent with The Profile, iTokk shareholders can be assured we will work diligently to complete this transaction and create significant value for them and all stakeholders.”
Pursuant to the LOI, the Parties will enter into negotiations of certain definitive agreements whereby the Company will acquire 100% of the shares of The Profile for a purchase price of US$4,000,000. The obligations of the parties to complete the sale are conditional upon the following:
a) The Company will have applied for and received a full revocation of the Cease Trade Order of the British Columbia Securities Commission issued on October 8, 2010 (the “Cease Trade Order”) under section 164(1) of the Securities Act, R.S.B.C. 1996, c. 418 (the “Act”) that all trading in the securities of IKTO cease until it files the required records referred to in the Cease Trade Order.
b) All applicable regulatory approvals (including approvals of the BCSC, US SEC or any other regulatory body having jurisdiction) and third-party consents that are needed in respect of the Transaction will have been obtained to the satisfaction of the parties.
c) If and after the Cease Trade Order is revoked, the Company will have (a) completed a share restructuring including, but not limited to; a reverse stock split, a cancellation of certain preferred shares, and issuance of new shares to stakeholders; and (b) completed an offering of securities to United States Persons (subject to and in accordance with applicable securities laws) pursuant to which the Company will receive gross proceeds in an amount necessary to finance the Transaction, pay related fees and expenses, provide adequate ongoing working capital, and on terms and conditions satisfactory to the Company.
d) The Company’s satisfactory completion of due diligence.
e) The board of directors and shareholders of the Company and the Profile approving the Transaction.
f) The Parties’ execution of the Definitive Agreements and all ancillary agreements.
g) There being no material adverse change in the business, results of operations, prospects, condition (financial or otherwise) or assets of The Profile.
The letter of intent will automatically terminate and be of no further force and effect on June 30, 2019, unless the Parties enter into the definitive agreements on or before that date.
There is no guarantee that the Company will obtain the issuance of a full revocation order in the future from the BCSC and, accordingly, the aforesaid transaction may never be completed.
