MONTREAL, Nov. 19, 2021 -- Intema Solutions Inc. (“ Intema ” or the “ Corporation ”) (TSXV: ITM, OTCMKTS: ITMZF) is pleased to announce that its securities will resume trading at the opening of the markets on Monday, November 22, 2021.
“We are excited to have our stock trading again and to pursue our growth plans in the rapidly growing esports and iGaming sectors,” said Laurent Benezra, President and CEO of Intema. “In the coming weeks, we will pursue our efforts to finalize the acquisition of Livestream Gaming Ltd. (“ Livestream ”), owner of LOOT.BET, and meet the conditions for approval of the transaction, including, but not limited to, obtaining a gaming license from the Isle of Man and filing the required documentation with the regulatory authorities.” “Since entering the esports and iGaming sectors in early 2021, we have completed the acquisitions of the social and esports platform HypeX.gg, the B2B and B2C esports-related product and service provider The SMACK.gg, and the Team BH esports team, which are all part of the ecosystem we are building. We believe the portfolio of products and services we have cultivated will complement the LOOT.BET online gaming platform and website once the acquisition of Livestream is complete. We have also enhanced the quality and expertise of our management team with the addition of Scott Meyers as CFO, and of our board of directors with the addition of Art Manteris, Marc Brassard and Philip Nolan, all of whom have made solid contributions to our ongoing projects.” “Once the Livestream transaction is finalized and the final tranche of our financing of up to $15 million financing is in place, Intema will have the tools to pursue the next phase of its global expansion in the esports and iGaming sectors,” concluded Mr. Benezra.
