Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – December 23, 2021) – RMR Science Technologies Inc. (TSXV: RMS.P) (“RMR” or the “Company“) announces that it has entered into a definitive amalgamation agreement dated December 21, 2021 with Turnium Technology Group, Inc. (“TTGI“) to effect a business combination (the “Business Combination“) which is intended to be a Qualifying Transaction (“QT“) of RMR pursuant to TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) Policy 2.4. The Business Combination has been structured as a three- cornered amalgamation pursuant to which a wholly owned subsidiary of RMR, 1333633 B.C. Ltd., and TTGI will amalgamate pursuant to the provisions of the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) and the amalgamated corporation will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of RMR, which will be renamed TTGI OpCo Inc.
Pursuant to the Business Combination, RMR will consolidate its issued and outstanding Class “A” Common Shares on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation Class “A” Common Share for every five (5) pre-consolidation Class “A” Common Shares and shareholders of TTGI will receive one (1) Class “A” Common Share of RMR (post-consolidation) for each common share of TTGI, including common shares issued by TTGI pursuant to the Concurrent Financing (as hereinafter defined). TTGI currently has 57,693,234 common shares issued and outstanding. Shareholders of RMR approved the share consolidation by way of special resolution at RMR’s Annual General and Special Meeting of shareholders (the “AGSM“) held on December 21, 2021.

TTGI intends to raise a minimum of $6,000,000 and a maximum of $8,000,000 (the “Concurrent Financing“) through the issuance of subscription receipts at a price of $0.56 per subscription receipt. Each subscription receipt will automatically convert into one unit of TTGI immediately prior to closing of the Business Combination upon satisfaction of certain escrow release conditions.
