Introhive Attracts Former Salesforce Executive From Retirement & Expands Engineering Leadership Team

Introhive, the leading CRM automation and relationship intelligence platform, has hired two key individuals who will drive the product development and innovation roadmap for Introhive’s existing solution offering. Jerry Carr, former SVP at Salesforce, is coming out of retirement to join the team as Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and Tony Sheehan, who formerly worked with Jerry at Radian6, comes aboard as Vice President of Engineering. Both will work closely with Introhive’s product team to develop new technology and workflows that continuously improve Introhive’s user experience, enhance the platform’s features, and increase internal efficiency.

As CTO, Carr brings nearly 30 years of experience in leading product development for globally deployed products. Most recently, Carr served Radian6 as the Executive Vice President of Engineering, growing their team of technologists from three developers to a team of 80. Taking notice of Radian6’s success, Salesforce acquired the company in 2011. Carr expertly assisted with the technical aspects of the acquisition and remained SVP of Engineering for Salesforce once finalized. During his tenure at Salesforce, Carr led a team of 250 engineers working in all aspects of technology to provide market-innovating products. Other brands that have benefited from Carr’s expertise are T4G Limited, iMagicTV, Alcatel, and Aliant.

“The Introhive team has already been able to develop innovative products that are deployed to both large and small customers that provide real value and improve their business outcomes. I really enjoy working on products that customers love to use and Introhive has that. This is an exciting next step in my personal adventure, working here with a proven leadership team, working on market-leading products that provide real value to customers looking to drive business transformation,” Carr says on what attracted him to Introhive.

Looking ahead, Carr is already focused on growing the Introhive platform as CTO.

“I believe that Introhive has a real opportunity for dramatic growth, both in the customer base and as a company. There is a true need that is addressed by the Introhive platform and the products that we have planned. We have the opportunity to deliver major value to our customers, leading to growth of the team and company on a global scale, which will be very rewarding,” Carr states.

“I was interested to work for Introhive because I wanted to join an innovative company where I saw a lot of potential for growth and acceleration. The Introhive platform really resonates with customers and they have a lot of success leveraging the technology to the point where they are willing to evangelize and advocate for the product. I was sold on it right away,” Sheehan says.

In addition, Sheehan is excited to jump into the role and capitalize on the potential he sees in the product offering and portfolio.

“Introhive has a solid foundation with a lot of potential — the platform is already more sophisticated than other surface-level products in the industry. I’m most looking forward to enhancing the rich and complete automation features the platform already offers and working closely with our customers and partners to deploy even more features that they believe will drive value and innovation,” Sheehan explains.

Introhive’s executives are also excited to have Jerry and Tony’s leadership on board to drive the platform’s innovation roadmap.

“Introhive was conceived on the original thesis that CRM is an amazing tool, but the more it is automated, the greater the usage and adoption, impact to marketing and business development, and overall return on investment for your CRM. If you can automate the mundane busy work, CRM can become a tool people love. We are seeing our CRM automation platform do just that for some of the biggest firms in professional services and the legal market today,” says Jody Glidden, CEO of Introhive.

Jody continues, “For the last few years, Introhive has been tripling revenue year-over-year. We’ve been generating a lot of strong momentum, new customer growth, and attracting world class talent. Jerry and Tony are a testament to this momentum and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have them join the team.”

Together, Carr and Sheehan bring over 40 years of experience in technical architecture, product development, and technology management to the Introhive team. Introhive is thrilled to have them both on board to ensure that the Introhive relationship intelligence platform delivers cutting-edge innovation in the growing enterprise relationship management industry.

FinCanna Capital Corp. Completes Reverse Take-over Transaction

Vancouver, British Columbia, December 27, 2017 – FinCanna Capital Corp. (“FinCanna”) and Astar Minerals Ltd. (“Astar”) (formerly TSX.V: TAR) are pleased to announce that further to their news release of July 13, 2017, FinCanna and Astar have completed the contemplated plan of arrangement
(the “Arrangement”).

Pursuant to the Arrangement, Astar acquired all of the issued and outstanding common shares of FinCanna in exchange for common shares of Astar on a one to one basis. In addition, each outstanding option and warrant to acquire a FinCanna common share became exercisable for one Astar common share. Under the terms of the Arrangement, FinCanna became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Astar and Astar, as the “Resulting Issuer”, will continue on with the business of FinCanna under the name “FinCanna Capital Corp.” Any reference to the “Resulting Issuer” in this news release refers to Astar following completion of the Arrangement and the foregoing name change.

Further to FinCanna’s news release dated December 19, 2017, FinCanna issued an aggregate of 12,373,580 subscription receipts (the “Subscription Receipts”) for gross proceeds of C$6,186,790 (the “Subscription Receipt Offering”). C$3,000,000 of the Subscription Receipt Offering was conducted on a brokered basis led by Canaccord Genuity Corp. (the “Lead Agent”) and consisted of a consortium of agents including the Lead Agent, Industrial Alliance Securities Inc. and Sprott Capital Partners. C$3,186,790 of the Subscription Receipt Offering was conducted on a non-brokered basis and was led Triview Capital Ltd.

In accordance with their terms, immediately prior to closing of the Arrangement, each Subscription Receipt was automatically converted for one FinCanna common share and one-half of one FinCanna warrant. Upon completion of the Arrangement, the FinCanna common shares were exchanged for
common shares of the Resulting Issuer on a one for one basis. In addition, each whole FinCanna warrant
is now exercisable for one Resulting Issuer share at an exercise price of C$0.75 until December 22, 2019.

In addition, the previously issued FinCanna convertible debentures (the “Debentures”) in the aggregate principal amount of C$945,443 also converted into units of the Resulting Issuer (“Units”) at a conversion price of C$0.50 per Resulting Issuer share. Each Unit consists of one common share of the Resulting Issuer and one-half of one warrant, with each whole warrant being exerciseable into a common share of the Resulting Issuer at an exercise price of C$0.75 until December 22, 2019.

The total aggregate gross proceeds from the sale of the Debentures and Subscription Receipts was C$7,132,233.

Due to TSX Venture Exchange (“TSX-V”) policies prohibiting the listing of issuers with business activities in the U.S. cannabis sector, the Resulting Issuer has delisted its common shares from the TSX-V and applied to list on the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE”).

The Resulting Issuer has been conditionally approved for listing on the CSE and it is anticipated that the common shares of Resulting Issuer will begin trading on the CSE on December 29, 2017 under CUSIP 31773B105.

On December 27, 2017, FinCanna issued a total of 3,350,000 incentive stock options with an exercise price of $0.50 per Resulting Issuer share, including 300,000 incentive stock options to Kin Communications who has been engaged as FinCanna’s investor relations firm, and the remainder to executive management, directors, advisors and consultants.

Vancouver, B.C., June 23rd, 2016 – CIBT Education Group Inc. (TSX: MBA, OTCQX International: MBAIF) (“CIBT” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has signed a financial advisory agreement (the “Agreement”) with TriView Capital Ltd., of Calgary, Alberta to raise an aggregate of $110 million equity for two limited partnerships being structured by CIBT and to be managed by one of CIBT’s subsidiaries, Global Education City Management Corp., to develop a GEC-branded Education Super Center in Metro Vancouver and Education Mega Center potentially in Surrey, BC (collectively referred to as “Super Centers”).

The concept of “Education Super Centers” was derived from CIBT’s development and successful launching of its Global Education City projects in Metro Vancouver, now comprising five student centric serviced apartments and hotels located in Metro Vancouver valued over $165 million. With two of these projects fully operational at near 100% occupancy, two projects near completion for August and December 2016 possession, one project expanded from two city lots to three city lots and now at re-zoning phase, the Education Super Center and Mega Center models were developed based on experiences gained and tremendous demand generated through CIBT’s schools, recruitment network and agency connections, and other elements of its education infrastructure.

“We have had the pleasure of working with TriView Capital since 2015 and TriView successfully completed $6 million in equity investments for a GEC-branded limited partnership project efficiently,” commented Toby Chu, President, Chief Executive Officer and Vice Chairman of CIBT Group. “From the experience gained and comments received so far, it is clear to us that investment interest in student housing is fresh and strong, and having CIBT Group’s 22 years education infrastructure along with Sprott Shaw College’s 113 years’ experience in BC’s education sector made a tremendous difference when connecting with potential investors. Furthermore, our infrastructure and experience has thus far ensured a steady pipeline feeding international students to our housing properties. Our Education Super Center and Mega Center projects will be the first of its kind in North America in terms of business model, innovation, scale and size. Total aggregated project size for these two projects is approximately C$400 million, and we look forward to working with TriView Capital on these projects.”

“These projects are cutting edge in the terms of thinking outside of the box. Instead of the notion of building housing and hoping that students arrive, these two specific “Super Centers” integrate educational infrastructure with student housing,” says Craig Burrows, President & CEO of TriView Capital Ltd. He also added, “Prestigious universities are no longer tied to their original site or city. They’re now opening up satellite schools to compete for the post-secondary student market. It’s a game changer that instead of people going to the mountain, the “Super Centers” are bringing the mountain to the students. Vancouver is the perfect city for international students and a perfect location for universities / colleges to set up satellite locations”.

About GEC Super Centers:
GEC Super Centers will be the first of their kind in North America, aggregating a number of multidiscipline public and private schools at one location, including language schools, colleges, technical and trade schools, and universities, supported by long and short-term stay hotels connected to the GEC Super Centers. Such arrangement will eliminate the need for students attending schools at a GEC Super Center to commute daily to and from school, saving them time and money. Perhaps even more importantly, students will be living and studying in a safe environment.

For commercial tenants and schools to be located at a GEC Super Center, they will be able to substantially reduce their operating cost by sharing common area facilities such as cafeteria, library, computer center, student lounges, job placement agencies and meeting/conference rooms. These facilities are expensive to maintain, often under-utilized but an essential requirement for every school. By pooling these resources together, school tenants located at GEC Super Centers will be able to focus on their core competency being “education”, instead of spending valuable capital and operating expenses on supporting facilities.

“Catering to both domestic and international students, the student housing sector in the Vancouver area is an untapped opportunity for superior returns versus risk over the next 3 to 5 years. We believe that CIBT’s focus and expertise in this field gives them a competitive advantage in this market and we look forward to our next GEC project”, stated Craig Burrows, President & CEO of TriView Capital Inc. “With the volatility of the stock market, private equity investments such as the GEC Burnaby Heights project provides a solid diversification strategy for our accredited investors.”

“We are very pleased with TriView’s commitment to our GEC Burnaby Heights project,” commented Toby Chu, President and CEO, Vice Chairman of CIBT. “Given its track record in generating returns in the real estate sector, we are excited to be working with TriView on Burnaby Heights and hope to work with them on upcoming projects. The investment demand for this project exceeded our original planned amount and the over subscription interest was introduced to GEC‘s next upcoming project to be launched shortly.”

GEC Burnaby Heights is a strata condominium building with commercial premises on the ground floor, four stories of concrete and wood frame construction and is able to accommodate approximately 84 beds. The close proximity of this property to various educational institutions in the area, and being situated on a major traffic artery, makes it perfect for international students to commute between school, residence and downtown Vancouver. The close proximity to Simon Fraser University, Fraser International College, Capilano University, British Columbia Institute of Technology, Sprott Shaw Burnaby Campus and Sprott Shaw College East Vancouver means that students from these schools could potentially benefit from this project. Construction for GEC Burnaby Heights is expected to complete in the summer of 2016, and GEC Burnaby Heights Limited Partnership plans to take possession and furnish the property for the start of the 2016/17 school year.
