Carbon Streaming Provides Update on Share and Warrant Consolidation to Pursue a Potential U.S. Listing

Post-consolidation Trading to Start October 25, 2021

TORONTO, ONTARIO, October 19, 2021 – Carbon Streaming Corporation (NEO: NETZ) (FSE: M2QA) (“Carbon Streaming” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company will start trading on a post-consolidated basis on October 25, 2021. The Company had previously announced its proposed consolidation (the “Consolidation”) of its issued and outstanding common shares (“Common Shares”), common share purchase warrants (“Warrants”) and special warrants (the “Special Warrants”) on September 17, 2021.

“The share consolidation is the latest step in proceeding with our U.S. listing strategy,” said Carbon Streaming CEO, Justin Cochrane. “We believe the potential U.S. listing will provide the Company with increased flexibility, enhanced liquidity and greater potential to achieve our ambitious growth plans.”

Consolidation Highlights:

  • The Consolidation will commence at the opening of trading on October 25, 2021.
  • The Company’s name and trading symbols will remain unchanged.
  • The Common Shares and listed Warrants will continue to trade on a post-Consolidation basis on the NEO Exchange Inc. (the “NEO Exchange”).

The board of directors of the Company previously determined in accordance with the constating documents of the Company that the Consolidation (reverse stock split) will be implemented on the basis of one post-Consolidation Common Share for every five pre-Consolidation Common Shares (1-for-5). The Company will also consolidate all of its issued and outstanding Warrants and Special Warrants on the same basis in accordance with the terms of their governing indentures and certificates. The Company has determined that the Consolidation will take effect after the close of business on Friday, October 22, 2021.

The Company has received NEO Exchange acceptance of the Consolidation, and commencing at the opening of trading on October 25, 2021, the Common Shares and listed Warrants will trade on a post-Consolidation basis on the NEO Exchange. The Company's name and trading symbols will remain unchanged.

In accordance with the provisions of the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia), if, as a result of the Consolidation, a shareholder would otherwise be entitled to a fraction of a Common Share in respect of the total aggregate number of pre-Consolidation Common Shares held by such shareholder, no such fractional Common Share will be awarded. The aggregate number of Common Shares that such shareholder is entitled to will, if the fraction is less than one half of one share, be rounded down to the next closest whole number of Common Shares, and if the fraction is at least one half of one share, be rounded up to one whole Common Share. By way of example, if a shareholder held 999 pre-Consolidation Common Shares, the shareholder would hold 200 Common Shares on a post-Consolidation basis.
