Additional Information - News Release

131 Announces Closing of Private Placement of 8,144,199 Subscription Receipts in Syntheia

May 16, 2024 - Toronto, Ontario - 1319472 B.C. Ltd. ("131") is pleased to announce, further to its press release dated April 12, 2024, the closing of Metaworld Corporation's (dba Syntheia) ("Syntheia") brokered private placement offering of subscription receipts (the "Subscription Receipts") through the issuance of 8,144,199 Subscription Receipts for gross proceeds of $2,850,469.65 (the "Financing"). Syntheia may close a second tranche of the Financing in the upcoming weeks.

The Financing was carried out in connection with the proposed reverse takeover of 131 by Syntheia by way of amalgamation (the "Proposed Transaction") pursuant to the terms of an amended and restated letter agreement (the "Amended Letter Agreement") dated April 10, 2024. The resulting issuer from the Proposed Transaction (the "Resulting Issuer") will continue to operate the business of Syntheia. 131 has applied to list the Resulting Issuer's common shares on Cboe Canada Inc. (the "Exchange") and, if and upon the satisfaction of the Exchange's initial listing requirements, the common shares of the Resulting Issuer are expected to begin trading on the Exchange following the closing of the Proposed Transaction.

Assuming the closing of the Proposed Transaction and completion of the listing on the Exchange, the net proceeds from the Financing will be used by the Resulting Issuer for operational expansion, business development and working capital purposes.

Pursuant to the Financing, Syntheia, First Republic Capital Corporation and 131 entered into a subscription receipt agreement (the "Subscription Receipt Agreement") dated May 16, 2024 with Endeavor Trust Corporation as subscription receipt agent (the "Subscription Receipt Agent").

The Financing was brokered by First Republic Capital Corp. as lead agent (the "Lead Agent") and Hampton Securities Ltd. (together with the Lead Agent, the "Agents"). In connection with the closing of the Financing, Syntheia paid 50% of: (a) a fee of $7,253.40 (the "Advisory Fee") for advisory services provided to Syntheia in connection with the Financing; (b) a corporate finance fee of $49,755.99 payable to the Lead Agent (the "Corporate Finance Fee"); (c) aggregate cash fees of $171,028.18 payable to the Agents and certain eligible persons (the "Commission" and together with the Advisory Fee and the Corporate Finance Fee the "Cash Compensation"); and (c) the Agents' expenses. The remaining 50% of the Cash Compensation and the Agents' expenses has been deposited into escrow with the Subscription Receipt Agent and shall be released upon satisfaction or waiver of the escrow release conditions set out in the Subscription Receipt Agreement, together with any interest earned thereon.

In addition, Syntheia has issued: (a) 20,724 advisory warrants (the "Advisory Warrants") to the Lead Agent; (b) 142,160 corporate finance warrants (the "Corporate Finance Warrants") to the Lead Agent; and (c) 488,652 compensation warrants (the "Compensation Warrants", together with the Advisory Warrants and the Corporate Finance Warrants, the "Agent's Warrants") to the Agents and certain eligible persons. Each Agent's Warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for one Unit at $0.35 for a period for twenty-four (24) months from the date that the Resulting Issuer's common shares commence trading on the Exchange.

Upon the satisfaction or waiver of, among other things, all of the condition precedents to the completion of the Proposed Transaction, each Subscription Receipt will be exchanged for one unit of Syntheia (a "Unit") with each Unit being comprised of one (1) common share of Syntheia (a "Common Share") and one (1) Common Share purchase warrant of Syntheia (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will be exercisable for one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.50 for a period of 24 months following the date that the Resulting Issuer shares begin trading on the Exchange.

Upon closing of the Proposed Transaction, the Common Shares, Warrants and Agents' Warrants will be exchanged for Resulting Issuer shares and Resulting Issuer warrants on economically equivalent terms on a 1:1 basis.

The Warrants are subject to acceleration at Syntheia' option, if at any time prior to the expiry of the Warrants the 10-day volume-weighted average price of the Resulting Issuer shares is greater than $0.75, provided that: (i) the Resulting Issuer disseminates a press release providing notice of its intention to accelerate the expiry of the Warrants, and (ii) the accelerated expiry date of the Warrants falls on the earlier of (unless exercised by the holder prior to such date): the 30th day after the date of dissemination of such press release, and/or 24 months following the listing of the Resulting Issuer shares on the Exchange.
