Both transactions are subject to exchange approval.
The LOI provides that following completion of the private placement and shares for debt transactions referred to above, Meryllion will consolidate all of its issued and outstanding shares such that prior to completion of the RTO, Meryllion will have no more than 2,000,000 Class A common shares outstanding. It is expected that the Company will issue an aggregate of 24,000,000 shares to current shareholders of Thunderhawk and shareholders under the Concurrent Private Placement such that the resulting issuer will have no more than 26,000,000 Class A common shares issued and outstanding. Upon completion of the RTO, current shareholders of the Company will hold approximately 7.7% of the total issued and outstanding shares of the resulting issuer.
