May 18, 2022 – Vancouver, British Columbia – Blender Bites Ltd. (the “Company”, “Blender Bites” or “Blender”), (CSE: BITE, FWB: JL4, WKN: A3C3Y2), a Canadian company that develops and markets a line of organic and plant-based pre-portioned frozen functional foods, is pleased to announce that it is considering a potential graduation of its listing to the Toronto Stock Exchange and in anticipation the Company is planning a consolidation (the “Consolidation”) of its outstanding common share capital on the basis of ten (10) pre-Consolidation shares for every one (1) post-Consolidation share. As of the date of this news release, the Company has 39,966,710 common shares issued and outstanding, and following completion of the Consolidation will be approximately 3,996,671 common shares outstanding.
The Company has experienced significant growth over the past year, and is transitioning into a major production stage. With increased demand from new and existing sales channels, an exponential increase in production orders is expected. Management views a graduation to a major exchange as a way to increase financing opportunities to fund expansion plans.
“Our recent growth has raised interest in graduating our listing. A graduation will hopefully give us access to larger capital pools as well as a boarder investing audience. I believe this move could significantly increase the growth potential of this already rapidly growing company.” stated Chelsie Hodge CEO of the Company.
Completion of the Consolidation remains subject to the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange, and to the satisfaction of applicable public distribution requirements. Readers are cautioned that while the Company is considering a potential graduation to the Toronto Stock Exchange, a listing application has not been submitted at this time, nor has the Company made any decision to proceed with a listing application, and any listing is subject to regulatory approval and the satisfaction of applicable listing requirements. There can be no assurance that any graduation will take place, or that the Consolidation will result in the Company meeting applicable listing requirements.
Prior to completing any listing application to the Toronto Stock Exchange, the Company will be required to prepare and submit an annual information form, secure additional financing to satisfy working capital requirements, demonstrate continued revenue growth and the ability to generate a profit from operations, and satisfy public distribution requirements.
