|Item 2.01||Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets|
Blox Inc. had made a strategic investment in Ashanti Sankofa Inc. (“ASI”). Blox previously held 9.02% of ASI’s issued and outstanding shares. As a result of the recent private placement which closed on February 5, 2021, in which Blox acquired an additional 2,500,000 units of ASI, it now holds 12.54% of ASI. Each unit was acquired at a cost of CDN$0.02 per unit, with each unit consisting of one common share and one share purchase warrant. Each warrant is exercisable at CDN$0.05 for one additional common share for a term of 3 years.
Blox was able to fund its investment in ASI through a loan advanced by Waratah Capital Ltd. in the amount CDN$50,000, provided for the purpose of participating in the private placement.
Blox and ASI share common directors and jointly use the services of Scott Taylor Ltd – a Ghanaian based West African Mining services company. Both companies have gold mining interests in West Africa, and also utilize the services of many of the same professional service providers around the world.
Management of Blox is of the view that these initial investments will foster the possibility of a future strategic alliance between the companies given their synergies in operations and direction. Both companies currently have the same major shareholder, Waratah Capital Ltd.
