Black Lion Capital Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BLC.P) ("Black Lion" or the "Company"), a capital pool company, has determined not to proceed at this time with the previously announced letter of intent dated August 8, 2016 (the "Letter of Intent") for the combination of Black Lion and Thomson Power Inc. ("Thomson").

In addition, Black Lion also announces that Sean Mitchell has been appointed as the Company's new President and Chief Executive Officer. The Company would like to thank Mr. Walsh for his tireless efforts in those capacities to date and look forward to his valued guidance as a continuing member of the Company's Board of Directors.

"While we continue to support Thomson Power's efforts to establish a leading presence in the emerging electric vehicle market, our Board has decided that the timing of the proposed merger transaction is premature. We will continue pursuing other potential partners towards our goal of completing our Qualifying Transaction and wish Thomson well with their progress in the coming months", said Black Lion's former President & CEO, and current Director, Michael Walsh.

The shares of Black Lion are currently halted for trading on the Exchange as result of the pending transaction, and so will be reinstated for trading shortly.
