(“Raycom”), an insider of Frankly Inc. (“Frankly”), which is publicly traded under ticker TLK on Canada’s TSX Venture Exchange, the Corporation has filed an early warning report with the Canadian Securities Administrators respect to its acquisition of indirect control of 547,325 common shares (“Common Shares”) and 871,160 common share purchase warrants (“Warrants”) in the capital of Frankly. The Common Shares represent approximately 20.6% of Frankly’s issued and outstanding Common Shares on a non-diluted basis.
