Killbear Acquisition Corp. Announces Proposed Qualifying Transaction With Yangaroo Inc.

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/24/14 -- Killbear Acquisition Corp. (TSX VENTURE:KBA.P) (the "Corporation"), a capital pool company listed on the TSX Venture Exchange Inc. (the "Exchange"), is pleased to announce that it has entered into a term sheet dated June 24, 2014 and a subscription agreement dated June 24, 2014 (the "Agreements") with Yangaroo Inc. ("Yangaroo"), a company listed on the Exchange under the symbol "YOO", providing for its participation in Yangaroo's proposed brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") which, upon completion, will constitute the Corporation's qualifying transaction pursuant to the policies of the Exchange (the "Qualifying Transaction").

Under the Agreements, the Corporation will purchase common shares in the capital of Yangaroo (the "Yangaroo Shares") at a price of $0.30 per Yangaroo Share with all of its available cash reserves after deducting the anticipated transaction costs related to the Qualifying Transaction which are currently estimated at approximately $60,000, for an aggregate consideration of approximately $300,000 and up to a maximum of $324,000 depending on the actual transaction costs required to complete the Qualifying Transaction.

Following the completion of the Private Placement, the Corporation will undertake the necessary steps to distribute the Yangaroo Shares on a pro rata basis to its shareholders (the "Distribution") and thereafter the Corporation intends to delist its common shares from the Exchange and commence a voluntary dissolution in accordance with Section 237 of the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) (the "Dissolution").

The Yangaroo Shares will be issued to the Corporation and its shareholders pursuant to applicable prospectus and registration exemptions under National Instrument 45-106. Subject to certain disclosure and regulatory requirements and to customary restrictions applicable to distributions of shares from "control persons", the Yangaroo Shares distributed pursuant to the Distribution may be resold in each province and territory in Canada, subject in certain circumstances, to the usual conditions that no unusual effort has been made to prepare the market or create demand for the Yangaroo Shares and that no extraordinary commission or consideration is paid in respect of any trade.

The Corporation intends to make the Private Placement and subsequent Distribution and Dissolution its proposed "Qualifying Transaction" pursuant to Policy 2.4 of the Exchange. Yangaroo does not anticipate any new Control Person (as such term is defined in Exchange policies) will be created in connection with the Private Placement.

The Qualifying Transaction is an arm's length transaction for the purposes of the Exchange.

It is proposed that a special meeting of shareholders of the Corporation will be held on or before August 14, 2014, or such other date as permissible by applicable securities laws (the "Meeting"), at which time the shareholders will be asked to vote for or to vote against or withhold from voting for, inter alia, resolutions approving the Private Placement, Distribution and Dissolution of the Corporation.

The Corporation and Yangaroo anticipate that the Corporation's purchase of Yangaroo Shares will occur as soon as practicable following approval of the Private Placement by the shareholders of the Corporation at the Meeting after which the Corporation will immediately commence the distribution of Yangaroo Shares and the Dissolution.

You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
