DIVERGENT Energy Services Announces Closing of Shares for Interest Transaction

CALGARY, Alberta, April 03, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DIVERGENT Energy Services Corp. (the "Corporation") announces that it has closed its shares for interest transaction by electing to satisfy the interest obligation on its debentures ("Debentures") in the amount of $35,839.04 for March 31, 2024 (the "Interest Obligation") by the issuance of 2,389,270 common shares of the Corporation ("Common Shares") at a deemed price of $0.015 per Common Share to the holders of Debentures.

The transaction is subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") and is pursuant to the Corporation's right to satisfy its interest obligation owed on the Debentures. The Common Shares issued pursuant to the Interest Obligation are subject to the minimum pricing rules of the TSXV and a hold period to August 3, 2024 in accordance with applicable securities legislation and the TSXV requirements.

The issuance of the Common Shares may be deemed to be a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101") as approximately 54,019 Common Shares (subject to rounding) will be issued to Directors and/or Officers of the Corporation and approximately 933,685 Common Shares (subject to rounding) will be issued to two non-management shareholders that each hold greater than 10% of the outstanding Common Shares. The Corporation did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the closing date of the transaction because the Corporation's decision to settle the Interest Obligation for March 31, 2024 by issuing Common Shares was not determined until March 14, 2024. The issuance of the Common Shares is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 pursuant to Section 5.5(a) and Section 5.7(1)(a) as neither the fair market value of the subject matter of nor the consideration for the issuance of the Common Shares, insofar as it involves insiders receiving Common Shares for the Interest Obligation, exceeds 25% of the Corporation's market capitalization.
