Subsequent to the Amalgamation, Amador continued from British Columbia into Ontario, vertically amalgamated with Amalco and changed its name to “Menē Inc.” (the “Corporation”). Pursuant to the Amalgamation, Class A and B common shares of Menē were exchanged for Class A common (“Class A Shares”) and Class B common (“Class B Shares”) shares of the Corporation, respectively, at a 1:1 ratio. Common shares of Amador were exchanged for Class B Shares. Class A Shares entitle the holders thereof to twenty votes per share and Class B Shares entitle the holders thereof to one vote per share. Menē’s superior voting common share purchase warrants were exchanged for Class A Share purchase warrants, Menē’s subordinate warrants were exchanged for Class B Share purchase warrants and Menē’s options were exchanged for options exercisable into Class B Shares, all on a 1:1 basis.
The Class B Shares were listed on the TSX Venture Exchange on November 6, 2018.
