All TGOD shareholders, of record as of the Record Date, will be issued a notice from TGOD’s transfer agent, Computershare Investor Services Inc., with instructions on how to obtain the Warrants they are entitled to under the Arrangement. It is anticipated that TGOD Acquisitions will complete an IPO on the Canadian Securities Exchange in the fourth quarter of 2018.
