Victory Square Acquires 40% Interest in Major Motion Picture Film Fund

...Unified Film Fund II producing three-film set including "What They Had" starring two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank

/EINPresswire.com/ -- VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Jul 27, 2017) - In a move designed to strengthen its presence in film and entertainment, Victory Square Technologies Inc. ("Victory Square" or the "Company") (CSE:VST)(CSE:VST.CN)(CNSX:VST)(OTC PINK:VSQTF)(FRANKFURT:6F6)(WKN:A2AKL8) has executed an agreement with Interlock Capital Ltd. ("Interlock") to acquire its 40% equity stake in Unified Film Fund II, LLC (the "Film Fund"). In exchange for the equity stake, the Company has issued 5,000,000 common shares in its capital to Interlock.

The Film Fund will be producing three major motion pictures in 2017 and 2018, including "What They Had" starring two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank and "Ride" starring Bella Thorne, Jessie T. Usher and Will Brill. The third feature film packaged in the deal is yet to be announced.

"We are thrilled to have acquired this interest in Unified Film Fund II, LLC and to have the chance to collaborate with Keith Kjarval and the team at Unified Pictures," said Shafin Diamond Tejani, CEO of Victory Square. "This kind of investment in entertainment and film represents a major plank for our Company going forward and we consider ourselves fortunate to have the opportunity to acquire this 40% stake in the Film Fund. We believe it's another strong initiative in film production for us and our stakeholders."

Victory Square is also pleased that the North American distribution rights for "What They Had" have been purchased by Bleecker Street. Bleecker Street plans a 2018 release for the film that recently wrapped in Chicago and Los Angeles.

"We are very proud of this three-picture line-up and are confident in the great return the Film Fund will provide for our stakeholders, including Victory Square Technologies, Inc.," said Kjarval, the founder of Northridge, California-based Unified Pictures and manager of the Film Fund. "We welcome Victory Square to these projects and look forward to many more opportunities to work with Shafin Tejani and his team in the months and years to come."

A drama from writer-director Elizabeth Chomko, "What They Had" stars Swank, Michael Shannon, Robert Forster and Blythe Danner. The story follows a woman (Swank) who must fly back to her hometown when her Alzheimer-stricken mother wanders into a blizzard. The film is the big-screen directorial debut for Chomko, a highly-touted actress and playwright.

"Ride" recently completed production starring Bella Thorne, Jessie T. Usher and Will Brill. Marking the directorial debut of Jeremy Ungar, "Ride" invokes the dangers of a technology-obsessed society, and features Usher as a ride-share driver, Thorne as his passenger, and Brill as a manipulative passenger who turns a normal night in Los Angeles into a psychological battle for survival.

The three-picture deal incorporates North American and International sales and distribution revenue income to the Film Fund.

TERMS OF THE ACQUISITION

Pursuant to an Assignment and Assumption Agreement executed between the Company and Interlock on July 6, 2017 (the "Assignment and Assumption Agreement"), the Company has acquired Interlock's 40% membership interest in the Film Fund. The purchase price of an aggregate of $4,250,000 has been paid and satisfied by the Company through the issuance of 5,000,000 common shares in the capital of the Company (the "Consideration Shares") to Interlock at a deemed issue price of $0.85 per Consideration Share. The deemed issue price represents the closing price of the common shares of the Company on the Canadian Securities Exchange at the end of trading on both June 29, 2017, less a discount of approximately 5.5%.
