Niagara Ventures Corporation Announces Letter of Intent with Blu-Dot Beverage Company Inc.

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/03/14 -- Niagara Ventures Corporation ("NVC") (TSX VENTURE: NIA.P) announced today that it has entered into a binding letter of intent ("LOI") with Blu-Dot Beverage Company Inc. ("Blu-Dot") which outlines the general terms and conditions of a proposed transaction pursuant to which NVC will acquire all of the issued and outstanding securities of Blu-Dot in exchange for securities of NVC (the "Transaction"). The LOI was negotiated at arm's length and is effective as of July 2nd, 2014.

NVC is a capital pool company listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"). NVC has not commenced commercial operations and has no assets other than cash. The Transaction, if completed, will constitute NVC's "Qualifying Transaction", as defined in TSXV policies.

Blu-Dot is based in Oakville, Ontario and governed by the laws of the Province of Ontario. Blu-Dot is in the business of providing healthy, all natural beverages to customers for everyday use in support of a healthy lifestyle without compromising taste or quality. Blu-Dot's current line of beverages is produced using a patent pending formula and process.

The Transaction terms outlined in the LOI are binding on the parties and the LOI is expected to be superseded by a definitive agreement (the "Definitive Agreement") to be signed between the parties. The Transaction is subject to regulatory approval, including the approval of the TSXV, and standard closing conditions, including the approval of the Transaction by the directors of each of NVC and Blu-Dot and completion of due diligence investigations to the satisfaction of each of NVC and Blu-Dot, as well as the conditions described below. The legal structure for the Transaction will be determined after the parties have considered all applicable tax, corporate and securities law, and accounting efficiencies.

Trading in the common shares of NVC (the "NVC Shares") will be halted as a result of this announcement and will remain halted until the resumption of trading is approved by the TSXV.

The Proposed Transaction

NVC agrees to seek regulatory and any required shareholder approval to acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Blu-Dot ("Blu-Dot Shares"), on the basis of a Shareholder Equity Valuation of NVC of $2,550,706 with 12,753,532 common shares ("NVC Shares") outstanding at a price of $0.20 per share.

The Enterprise Valuation of Blu-Dot will be $2,050,000. This Enterprise Valuation of Blu-Dot equates to Shareholder Equity Valuation of $1,875,000 plus a maximum $175,000 of Blu-Dot Debt. The Blu-Dot Shareholder Equity Valuation will be finalized on closing based on the closing date value of Blu-Dot Debt.

Upon the closing of the Transaction the number of Blu-Dot Shares then outstanding representing its $1,875,000 Shareholder Equity Valuation will be proportionately equated to NVC Shareholder Equity Valuation of $2,550,706. The requisite number of NVC Shares at $0.20 per share will be issued in exchange for the Blu-Dot Shares. The net asset position of NVC at closing will be at least $ 2 Million (before any costs borne by NVC to close a transaction with Blu-Dot).

It is expected that following completion of the Transaction the current holders of NVC Shares will hold approximately XX% of the outstanding shares of the resulting issuer and the current holders of Blu-Dot Shares will hold approximately XX% of the outstanding shares of the resulting issuer.

Prior to the completion of the Transaction, NVC shall call a meeting of its shareholders for the purpose of approving, among other matters, (i) a change of name of NVC to complement the business of the resulting issuer; (ii) election of individuals to the board of directors of NVC; and (iii)) if required by the TSXV, the approval of the Transaction.

Upon closing of the Transaction, the board of NVC shall be reconstituted in a manner that complies with the requirements of the TSXV and applicable securities laws. NVC and Blu-Dot shall each be entitled to select two nominees on the reconstituted board and one additional director nominee shall be mutually agreed, subject to a majority of the Board being independent directors and the receipt of applicable regulatory approvals.

Other Conditions to Transaction

Completion of the Transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including, but not limited to, TSXV acceptance. There can be no assurance that the Transaction will be completed as proposed, or at all.

Other conditions to completion of the Transaction include, but are not limited to:

    Transaction.
--  Preparation and filing of a disclosure document outlining the definitive
    terms of the Transaction in accordance with the rules of the TSXV.
