written confirmation from each of ARCpoint and RSI that all conditions to the completion of the Proposed RTO have been satisfied or waived, other than the release of the Escrowed Funds and the closing of the Proposed RTO, each of which will be completed forthwith upon release of the Escrowed Funds;
the Resulting Issuer Shares being conditionally approved for listing on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) and the completion, satisfaction or waiver of all conditions precedent to such listing, other than the release of the Escrowed Funds; and

The net proceeds raised from the Private Placement will be used by ARCpoint for software development, asset acquisitions, working capital and general corporate purposes.
Amendments of the Business Combination Agreement
The Subscription Price represents a reduced valuation of ARCpoint (the “Updated ARCpoint Valuation”) due to the current market conditions which has led to a change to the proposed consolidation ratio for the common shares of RSI (the “RSI Shares”). Accordingly, the parties to the Proposed RTO have entered into an amending agreement (the “Amending Agreement”) to amend the Business Combination Agreement as follows:
the consolidation ratio (the “Consolidation Ratio”) for the consolidation of RSI Shares immediately prior to the closing of the Proposed RTO has been reduced from 3.1579031 to 2.4930814 pre-Consolidation RSI Shares for one post-consolidation RSI Share (the “Amended Consolidation Ratio”); and
the minimum offering sizing of the Private Placement has been reduced from $4,350,000 to $2,150,000;
The Updated ARCpoint Valuation also results in changes to the number of post-consolidation securities of RSI, the deemed prices of ARCpoint’s Class A Common Units and Class B Common Units and the number of shares of the Resulting issuer issuable upon closing of the Proposed Transaction as set out in the Company’s press release dated April 27, 2022 which shall be updated as follows:
After giving effect to the Consolidation based on the Amended Consolidation Ratio, RSI will have approximately 14,775,000 SVS and 561,554 SVS purchase options issued and outstanding, with each option exercisable to purchase one SVS of the Resulting Issuer at an exercise price of $0.25 per SVS (all such numbers subject to minor deviation as a result of the effects of rounding at the individual securityholder level).
Subject to approval by the Exchange, upon closing of the Proposed Transaction, it is anticipated that, RSI will issue to the securityholders of ARCpoint and ARCpoint Finco the following: (A) 123,894 Class B Proportionate Voting Shares (“PVS”) in exchange for 123,894 Class A Common Units of ARCpoint at a deemed price of $225 per PVS, (B) 15,704,500 SVS in exchange for 31,409 Class B Common Units of ARCpoint, 4,777,778 SVS in exchange for 4,777,778 Finco Shares assuming full subscription of the minimum amount of the Private Placement or 11,111,111 SVS in exchange for 11,111,111 Finco Shares assuming full subscription of the maximum amount of the Private Placement, at a deemed price of $0.45 per SVS, (D) 2,388,889 SVS purchase warrants in exchange for 2,388,889 Finco Warrants assuming full subscription of the minimum amount of the Private Placement or 5,555,556 SVS purchase warrants in exchange for 5,555,556 Finco Warrants assuming full subscription of the maximum amount of the Private Placement (all such numbers subject to minor deviation as a result of the effects of rounding at the individual securityholder level), and (E) such number of SVS purchase warrants as may be required to replace ARCpoint Finco’s broker warrants to be issued in connection with the Private Placement on a one for one basis.
