Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - May 9, 2022) - Advantagewon Oil Corp. (CSE: AOC) (OTC Pink: ANTGF), (the "Corporation", or "Advantagewon", or "AOC") is pleased to announce that it will be pursuing a change of business to an investment company (the "Proposed COB") under the rules of the Canadian Securities Exchange (the "CSE").
After a thorough evaluation of the Corporation's existing resources and a review of strategic options for the Corporation generally, the Corporation determined to refocus its business operations from a "resource issuer" to an "investment issuer". The board of directors of the Corporation (the "Board") believes that its network of business contacts, the depth of experience of its management team and its overall entrepreneurial approach will enable it to identify and capitalize upon investment opportunities as an "investment issuer". In connection with the Proposed COB, the Corporation intends to adopt an investment policy (the "Investment Policy") to govern its investment activities and investment strategy. A summary of the material terms of the Investment Policy will be disclosed in due course and a copy of the Investment Policy will be posted on the Corporation's profile at www.sedar.com.
In conjunction with the Proposed COB, it is anticipated that the Corporation's name will be changed to "Environmental Capital Corp." or such other name as the directors of the Corporation in their sole discretion may determine. The Corporation reserved "ERUN" as trading symbol with the CSE. The directors of the Corporation believe this name will better reflect AOC's new focus as an investment issuer in clean technology space.
The completion of the Proposed COB is subject to a number of conditions, including the CSE acceptance and shareholder approval. The Proposed COB cannot be completed until the required shareholder approval is obtained which the Corporation intends to obtain through a written resolution.
The Corporation also announces the appointment of Paul Haber as Interim Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation effective May 3, 2022, following the resignation of Carlos Brasil as Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation. The Corporation thanks Mr. Brasil for his service and invaluable assistance in AOC's business and wishes him the best in his future endeavors.
