August 16, 2017 Download PDF

Vancouver, BC, Canada, August 16, 2017 - Deer Horn Capital Inc. (CSE: DHC) (the "Company" or "Deer Horn"), announces that it has now closed its previously announced private placement and issued a total of 5,250,000 common shares for total gross proceeds of $105,000. The issuance of these shares was completed under the Partial Revocation Order obtained from the BCSC earlier this year.

All of the Company’s securities, including the shares issued in connection with this financing, remain subject to the cease trade order issued against the Company on January 30, 2017 (the "CTO") for failing to file certain outstanding continuous disclosure documents in a timely manner. In addition, in accordance with applicable securities legislation, certain of the common shares issued pursuant to this private placement are subject to a hold period of four months and a day from the closing date of the financing.

$25,000 of this private placement was subscribed for by directors and officers of the Company. The issuance of common shares to a director or officer pursuant to the private placement is considered to be a "related party transaction" under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"), but is exempt from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as the Company is listed on the CSE and neither the fair market value of securities being issued to related parties nor the consideration being paid by related parties has exceeded 25% of the Company's market capitalization.

The Company is in the process of finalizing its outstanding 2016 year end audited financial statements, the subsequent interim statements and all corresponding continuous disclosure documentation and anticipates that it will be in a position to file these documents on SEDAR within the next month. Once all outstanding continuous disclosure documents have been filed, the Company expects to then make application for a full revocation of the CTO.
