VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Belvedere Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: BEL) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has received conditional approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) in relation to the Company’s proposed “Change of Business” transaction (“COB Transaction”).
Furthermore, the Company also announces that it has filed its filing statement dated October 15, 2018 (the “Filing Statement”) on SEDAR (www.sedar.com). Full details of the COB Transaction, and of the Company’s management, share capital structure and new business following the COB Transaction, are contained in the Filing Statement.
As previously disclosed, the Company is undertaking the COB Transaction pursuant to the policies of the Exchange, with the result that the Company (which will be renamed Helix Applications Inc.) will become a blockchain technology company, listed on the Exchange, with its initial focus being on building blockchain applications. The Company has reserved the stock symbol “HELX” in connection with such proposed name change.
The Company is working to fulfill those conditions for receipt of final approval from the Exchange and to close the COB Transaction. The Company will continue to issue additional press releases related to the COB Transaction and other material information as it becomes available.
The Company will not be obtaining shareholder approval in connection with the COB Transaction, and is not required to do so by the Exchange, because: (i) the COB Transaction is not a “Related Party Transaction” (as defined by the Policies of the Exchange); (ii) Belvedere was without “active operations” (as set forth in Policy 5.2 – Changes of Business and Reverse Takeovers of the Exchange) prior to the COB Transaction; (iii) the Company will not be subject to a cease trader order and will not otherwise be suspended from trading on completion of the COB Transaction; and (iv) shareholder approval in respect of the COB Transaction is not required under applicable corporate and securities laws.

Completion of the COB Transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to acceptance by the Exchange. There can be no assurance that the COB Transaction will be completed as proposed or at all.
Investors are cautioned that, except as disclosed in the Filing Statement prepared in connection with the COB Transaction, any information released or received with respect to the acquisition may not be accurate or complete and should not be relied upon. Trading in the securities of the Company should be considered highly speculative.
The Exchange has in no way passed upon the merits of the COB Transaction and has neither approved nor disapproved the contents of this news release.
