The proceeds from the Disposition will be used by Mr. Lay to fund his subscription to a private placement by Medallion (the “Private Placement”) of 2,000,000 common shares of Medallion at a price of $0.20 per share, for gross proceeds to Medallion of $400,000.
As Mr. Lay or accounts he controls will be the sole subscriber to the Private Placement, the transaction will constitute a related party transaction under applicable securities laws, however the Private Placement will be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of Multilateral Instrument 51-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions, as neither the fair market value of any shares issued to Mr. Lay or account he controls, nor the consideration paid by Mr. Lay, will exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization. The Disposition and the Private Placement on a net basis will not alter the number of common shares of Medallion held or controlled by Mr. Lay. The plans for the Disposition have been fully disclosed to the Board of Directors of Medallion (the “Board”), and the terms of the Private Placement have been reviewed and approved by the Board with Mr. Lay abstaining from the approval process.
