Paradime LTD Acquisition Details

By acquiring Paradime LTD o/a AlphaVend – currently the second largest Bitcoin ATM operator in the UK – Bitcoin Well now owns and operates 26 machines across England, Scotland and Wales. This offers an established presence in key metropolitan centres such as London, Manchester and Glasgow. Given the Paradime LTD assets are currently operating under a temporary registration through the provisional license, Bitcoin Well will cease UK operations should any licensing changes occur that would result in non-compliance with regulations.

This type of acquisition supports our goal of enabling the purchase and sale of bitcoin in the fastest and safest way possible and sets the stage for further growth in Europe and around the world. As there are more than 35 existing operators in the UK region, Bitcoin Well can continue to evaluate potential acquisition opportunities. We look forward to applying our marketing approach and operational processes to capture efficiencies in this exciting new market. In accordance with the terms of the acquisition agreement, the new UK subsidiary of Bitcoin Well is currently seeking to secure a permanent license and certain approvals from the Financial Conduct Authority in the UK. For additional details regarding the acquisition, please see the Company’s Filing Statement dated May 17, 2021, accessible on SEDAR.

Update to Escrowed Shares

Bitcoin Well also provides a correction to the number of shares subject to Tier 2 - Surplus Escrow that was originally reported within our June 10, 2021 press release to 73,992,191 common shares, which updates and supersedes the originally reported 76,992,161 common shares.
