Toronto, Ontario, August 13, 2021 – Danavation Technologies Corp. (CSE:DVN) (“Danavation” or the “Company“) announces that it is retracting and clarifying certain disclosure included in its Form 2A – Listing Statement dated January 11, 2021, filed with securities regulators on January 15, 2021 and available under the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com (the “Listing Statement”).
On page 21 of the Listing Statement, the Company stated that it has “applied for certain patents with respect to proprietary software products for the retail and grocery industry, including an IoT command center for 24/7 monitoring, private cloud infrastructure for quick deployment and enterprise scalability, and artificial intelligence and analytics to provide inventory optimization, forecasting, marketing management, and dynamic pricing.” In addition, the Company stated that the “patents are in the application and examination phase and that the Company does not anticipate receiving any patents until late 2021.”
The Company wishes to retract the foregoing statements and to clarify the status of its patent application process. As at the date of the Listing Statement, the Company had commenced preparation of the patent application submissions with its intellectual property legal counsel but no formal filings had been made by counsel, nor have they been made as of the date of this news release. The Company is continuing to prepare applications with respect to two patent applications. Given that the applications have not yet been made, the Company also wishes to retract the forward-looking statement relating to the anticipating timing of receipt of the patents.
The Company also announced that it has retained 5 Quarters Investor Relations, Inc. (“5QIR”) and Hybrid Financial Ltd. (“Hybrid”) to provide investor relations and capital markets engagement to the Company.
Under the terms of the agreement with 5QIR executed January 7, 2021, the Company has agreed to pay to 5QIR a flat monthly rate of $8,000 based on activities and objectives to be achieved and based on estimated time targets associated with those activities. Each calendar quarter, a reconciliation of the hours incurred for the previous three-month period will be undertaken. If the hours incurred during the quarter are 5% higher or lower than the target, a billing adjustment will be made to the invoice for the last month in the quarter to adjust for the delta. The arrangement is based on a six-month term that auto-renews unless either party provides 30 days’ written notice.
Under the terms of the agreement with Hybrid dated November 23, 2020, the Company, through its wholly owned subsidiary, agreed to pay Hybrid a monthly fee of $22,500 for a period of 12 months, beginning on December 1, 2020, for the provision of strategic investor relation services.
Each of 5QIR and Hybrid act at arm’s length to the Company.
