TORONTO and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WOW Unlimited Media Inc. (TSXV: WOW.A and WOW.B) (the Company” or “WOW!”) is pleased to announce that its common voting shares and variable voting shares will trade under a single ticker on the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV"). The consolidation of the two ticker symbols into a single ticker symbol of the Company is solely an administrative change for trading purposes and is designed to enhance the liquidity and trading volume of WOW!’s shares.

WOW!’s common voting shares currently trade on the TSXV under "WOW.A" (CUSIP 98212M109). Its variable voting shares currently trade on the TSXV under "WOW.B" (CUSIP number 98212M208).

Effective August 31, 2018, both classes of shares will trade under the single TSXV ticker symbol "WOW", as well as combining under the same CUSIP number 98212M703. For trading purposes and reporting in brokerage accounts, both classes of shares will also be combined under the single designation of "Common and Variable Voting Shares" of WOW!

The combination of trading under a single ticker symbol does not amend the Company’s articles of incorporation, by-laws or share capital structure, nor the terms and conditions or the voting and ownership restrictions attaching to each class of shares.

Pursuant to WOW!'s articles of incorporation and the Broadcasting Act (British Columbia), the common voting shares may only be held and controlled by Canadians, and the variable voting shares may only be held and controlled by non-Canadians. Each class of shares is automatically assigned based on the Canadian or non-Canadian status of its holder.

There will be no changes to the Company’s voting procedures for shareholder meetings. Shareholders who wish to vote at meetings (either by proxy or by attending the meeting in person) will continue to be required to complete a Declaration of Canadian Status in order to enable WOW! to comply with Canadian ownership rules as an operator of broadcast assets.

Additional information relating to the terms and conditions of the common voting shares and variable voting shares is included in WOW!'s Annual Information Form available at

WOW! is also pleased to announce that it has engaged Venture North Capital Inc.
