TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / June 5, 2023 / A group of five longstanding shareholders of Tenet Fintech Group Inc. (CSX:PKK) ("Tenet" or the "Company") who currently own approximately 8% of the Company's shares (the"Concerned Shareholders") are leading an initiative to replace certain members of Tenet's Board, who they hold responsible for the recent chaotic events that have taken place at Tenet and have eroded the Company's value. The Concerned Shareholders are nominating three highly qualified individuals at the annual general meeting of shareholders (the "Meeting") to be held on June 27, 2023 at 10:00 am (EDT) to help Tenet reach the potential that attracted and convinced most shareholders to invest in the Company.
The three nominees that the Concerned Shareholders are putting forward are Johnson Joseph, Liang (Golden) Qiu and Mayco Quiroz. Mr. Joseph and Mr. Qiu are familiar to shareholders as the founders of Tenet and the main drivers behind the Company's vision while Mr. Quiroz has extensive private and public company experience, including in the Fintech industry.

The Concerned Shareholders' information circular is also available at www.sedar.com under Tenet's profile.
THE CONCERNED SHAREHOLDERS ARE ASKING SHAREHOLDERS TO VOTE FOR THE CONCERNED SHAREHOLDERS NOMINEES.
To ensure that the Company's best days are ahead, the Concerned Shareholders recommend that fellow shareholders vote using only the BLUE form of proxy FOR the three Concerned Shareholder nominees, and not to return or vote any proxy or voting instruction form sent to them by Tenet. The Concerned Shareholders believe their nominees will provide industry-specific expertise, capital market and business execution experience all while being vigilant on expenses and the capital share structure of the Company.
