VIP Entertainment Group

Calgary AlbertaTheNewswire –February 27, 2023VIP Entertainment Technologies Inc. (“VIP” or the “Company”) (TSXV:VIP) is pleased to provide an update on the initiatives for its growth plans in Q1, 2023.

VIP has filed the application to the Kahnawake Gaming Commission (“KGC”) for the company to acquire a Canadian based license. VIP is anticipating the completion and receipt of this license over the next few weeks. VIP is excited about the possibilities to promote its iGaming services in Canada once again as it has shown previous success inside of Canada. The KGC license will allow VIP to operate its pay-to-play products, namely its sportsbetting, casino and poker products in Canada, outside of Ontario.

In addition to the Kahnawake application, the company is securing additional partnerships to reactivate its historical user base in both Canada and other jurisdictions. These partnerships would see VIP begin to generate revenue from across Canada as well in other jurisdictions.  

Further to these initiatives which will see the Company increase direct player related revenue, VIP continues to work on development and launch of a number or engagement tools, aimed at offering users a place to engage in ancillary products prior to registering a full pay-to-play account on its vipbets.com platform, when meeting certain geological and age restricted conditions. A key tool the Company has recently released is it’s Daily Fantasy Sports (“DFS”) product which is now live in the Apple App Store and via the web. The free to play VIP Fantasy mobile app is a welcome change to the current DFS style. The VIP Fantasy Sports App is an easy to play and very engaging game. To view and download the VIP Fantasy DFS game, please visit https://apps.apple.com/ca/app/vip-fantasy/id6443849406 for all Apple compatible products, or visit the web-based version of the game at https://dfs.vipfree2play.com/

VIP would also like to announce the resignation of its Chief Financial Officer, Charidy Lazorko, and thank her for her time served in this position. The Company announces the appointment of Scott Seguin as its interim Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Seguin has significant experience in both public and private companies in a financial oversight role. The search for a permanent CFO has begun as well.

Consolidation of its common shares.

The Company wishes to announce the Consolidation of all of its common shares (“Common Shares”) on the basis of one post-consolidation Common Share for every 5 pre-consolidation Common shares effective on March 1, 2023.  The consolidation will result in the number of issued and outstanding Common Shares being reduced from 90,244,309 pre-consolidation Common Shares to approximately 18,044,862 post-consolidation Common Shares. The exercise or conversion price of warrants, compensation options and options, and the number of Common Shares issuable thereunder will also be proportionately adjusted upon the completion of the Consolidation. No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the Consolidation. The Consolidation is subject to the receipt of all required regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Each shareholder’s percentage ownership in the Company and proportional voting power remains unchanged after the Consolidation, except for minor changes and adjustments resulting from the treatment of any resulting fractional Common Shares.

The Common Shares will continue to be listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol “VIP” and the Common Shares are expected to begin trading on a post-Consolidation basis on the TSXV on or about March 1, 2023. Following the Consolidation, the new CUSIP number for the Common Shares is 92763B208 and the ISIN will be CA92763B2084.

Non-registered beneficial holders holding their Common Shares through intermediaries (securities brokers, dealers, banks, financial institutions, etc.) will not need to take any action to receive consolidated shares and should note that such intermediaries may have specific procedures for processing the Consolidation, including the treatment of fractional shares. Shareholders holding their Common Shares through an intermediary and who have any questions in this regard are encouraged to contact their intermediary.
