(Toronto: January 14, 2019) Quantum International Income Corp. (the "Corporation" or "Quantum") (TSXV: QIC) is pleased to announce that it has filed a management information circular (the "Circular") and related proxy materials in advance of its annual and special meeting of shareholders ("Shareholders") to be held at the offices of Bennett Jones LLP, Suite 3400, One First Canadian Place, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, M5X 1A4 on Thursday, February 14, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. (Toronto time) (the "Meeting"). The Meeting will be held for the following purposes:
- to receive and consider: (a) the financial statements of the Corporation for the financial year ended February 28, 2018 and the report of the auditors thereon, and (b) the financial statements of the Corporation for the three and six months ended August 31, 2018;
- to elect the directors of the Corporation for the ensuing year;
- to appoint RSM Canada LLP as the auditors of the Corporation for the ensuing year and to authorize the directors of the Corporation to fix their remuneration;
- to consider, and if deemed advisable, to pass, with or without variation, an ordinary resolution approving the stock option plan of the Corporation;
- to consider and, if deemed advisable, to pass, with or without variation, a special resolution authorizing the Corporation to change its name from "Quantum International Income Corp." to "Seven Aces Limited", as more particularly described in the Circular; and
- to transact such other business as may properly come before the Meeting or any adjournments or postponements thereof.
At the Meeting, the holders of common shares of the Corporation ("Common Shares") will be asked to approve a special resolution to change the name of the Corporation from "Quantum International Income Corp." to "Seven Aces Limited" (the "Name Change Resolution"). The Corporation is seeking to adopt the name "Seven Aces Limited" to better reflect the Corporation's current operations which are entirely gaming-related in nature following the acquisitions in the Georgia gaming market starting in October 2016. The current name reflects the Corporation's past activities and as such, the proposed name, "Seven Aces Limited", more closely aligns the Corporation in the space which it currently operates with the vision to build a diversified portfolio of world class gaming operations to create value for Shareholders.
The Corporation has notified the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") of the proposed change of name. Subject to Shareholder and Exchange approval of the change of name, it is expected that the Common Shares will commence trading on the Exchange under the new name and under the new stock symbol "ACES" at the opening of business two or three days subsequent to the effecting of the name change by the Corporation, subject to the receipt by the Exchange of the necessary documentation.
The Board unanimously recommends that Shareholders vote in favour of the Name Change Resolution. Unless a Shareholder has specifically instructed in the form of proxy that the Common Shares represented by such proxy are to be voted otherwise, the persons named in the accompanying proxy will vote FOR the approval of the Name Change ResolutionChange of Year End to December 31st
The Corporation also announces a fiscal year-end change from February 28th to December 31st. This change will align the fiscal year-end of the Corporation with its material subsidiary, Lucky Bucks, LLC, which owns and operates coin operated amusement machines (COAMs) in the State of Georgia, United States of America through arrangements with location owners. With this change, the Corporation's current fiscal year, which began in March 1, 2018 will end December 31, 2018.Meeting
