Credent Capital Corp. (the " Company ") and Good Gamer Corp. (" Good Gamer ") are pleased to provide an update on the proposed Qualifying Transaction between the Company and Good Gamer.  As previously announced on December 24, 2020 and February 1, 2021 the Company has agreed to acquire all of the issued and outstanding securities of Good Gamer (the " Proposed Transaction "). The Proposed Transaction will be a reverse takeover of the Company by Good Gamer and its shareholders.

Good Gamer is pleased to announce that it is focusing its resources on its North American GoodGamer Esports Tournament Management Platform (see Good Gamer news release dated April 21 , 2021).  The Tournament Management Platform allows iOS and Android mobile game publishers the opportunity to integrate real money competitions to their skill based mobile casual games and connecting gamers around the word by allowing them to responsibly compete for real-prize money.

Offering configurable head-to-head and multi-player tournaments as well as a dynamic leaderboard feature, the Tournament Management Platform caters to all categories of skill-based mobile casual games and players from all popular gaming genres as well as more niche selections. The Tournament Management Platform enables gaming publishers to add an additional source of revenue to their games by integrating the GoodGamer Software Design Kit (SDK).  The Tournament Management Platform includes a number of key features that gamers will find beneficial, including a variety of tournament types, loyalty rewards, player rankings and a highly responsive customer support service layer.

Previously, Good Gamer was focusing its resources in operating a fantasy sports app in India.  The management team of Good Gamer elected to shut down its fantasy sports operations in India due to lack of games in a regular cricket schedule, deposits averaging small amounts, high competition with other companies and an unstable economic landscape surrounding fantasy sports and Esports in India.  Further, the COVID-19 pandemic caused the largest cricket league in India to greatly suffer, which further exasperated Good Gamer's operations in India .

The Transaction

The Proposed Transaction will be affected by way of a three-cornered amalgamation among the Company, Good Gamer and a subsidiary of Credent (" Credent Sub ").  Pursuant to the Proposed Transaction, holders of the issued and outstanding common shares of Good Gamer (the " Good Gamer Shares ") will receive one Credent Share (as they exist on a post-Consolidation basis) for each Good Gamer Share held (the " Exchange Ratio "). It is anticipated that approximately 30,414,088 new Credent Shares will be issued under the Proposed Transaction.  Pursuant to the Proposed Transaction, all existing securities convertible into Good Gamer Shares shall be exchanged, based on the Exchange Ratio, for similar securities to purchase Credent Shares on substantially similar terms and conditions.

On or immediately prior to the completion of the Proposed Transaction, it is anticipated that: (i) the Company will effect a name change to "Good Gamer Entertainment Inc."; and (ii) the Company will consolidate the issued and outstanding common shares in the capital of the Company (the " Credent Shares ") on the basis of one "new" Credent Share for every five "old" Credent Shares issued and outstanding (the " Consolidation ").

There is currently an aggregate of 4,250,000 Credent Shares issued and outstanding.  As a result of the Consolidation, there will be 850,000 Credent Shares issued and outstanding on a post-Consolidation basis.

Prior to closing of the Transaction, Credent will settle corporate indebtedness of $139,000 by issuing 347,500 post-Consolidation Credent Shares at a price of $0.40 per share (the " Debt Conversion ").

In conjunction with closing of the Proposed Transaction, Credent will also pay a finder's fee to Madale Investment Corp., an arm's length party, of 1,000,000 post-consolidation Credent Shares and 1,000,000 share purchase warrants subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.  Each warrant will be exercisable at $0.40 per share for a period of two years from the date of issue.  The shares will be issued at a price of $0.40 per share for total value of $400,000 .

The Proposed Transaction is subject to certain customary conditions as well as:

    1. Shareholder approval of Good Gamer and no more than 5% of the shareholders of Good Gamer exercising dissent rights;
    2. Completion of the RTO Offering;
    3. Completion of the Consolidation by the Company;
    4. Completion of the Debt Conversion by the Company;
    5. Acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange and, if applicable, consents or approvals from any other regulatory body;
    6. No material adverse change of Good Gamer or the Company; and
    7. The resignation of the current directors and officers of the Company and he appointment of the nominees of Good Gamer to the resulting issuer.

The Proposed Transaction is an arm's length transaction in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange and is not subject to the approval of the shareholders of the Company.  The Company is not required to obtain shareholder approval in connection with the Name Change and the Consolidation pursuant to the Articles of the Company and applicable corporate law.

No Non-Arm's Length Parties to Credent hold a director or indirect beneficial interest in the Target.  None of the Non-Arm's Length Parties to Credent are insiders of the Target.  There is no relationship between the Non-Arm's Length Parties to Credent and the Non-Arm's Length Parties to the Qualifying Transaction (as defined by the rules of the TSX Venture Exchange).

Financing

In conjunction with the Proposed Transaction, the Company completed a non-brokered private placement of 10,000,000 subscription receipts (a " Subscription Receipt ") at $0.40 per Subscription Receipt for total proceeds of $4,000,000 (the " RTO Offering ").

Each Subscription Receipt, prior to the closing of the Proposed Transaction, will automatically convert into one common share of the Good Gamer and one-half of one share purchase warrant of the Good Gamer (each a " Good Gamer Warrant "), with each whole Good Gamer Warrant exercisable into one common share of Good Gamer at an exercise price of $1.00 per share for a period of two years (the " Expiry Date "), for no additional consideration upon the satisfaction of certain escrow release conditions, including the conditional approval of the TSX Venture Exchange for the Proposed Transaction and satisfaction or waiver of all conditions precedent to the Transaction as set out in the Definitive Agreement.  The Expiry Date of the Good Gamer Warrants may be accelerated if the average closing price of the resulting issuer's common shares is equal to or greater than $1.65 per share for a period of 10 trading days.

The common shares to be issued on conversion of the Subscription Receipts will be subject to the following voluntary lockup:  33% will be free trading on the listing date, 33%will be subject to restrictions on resale for three months after the listing date; and 34% will be subject to restrictions on resale for six months after the listing date.  These voluntary restrictions will be in additional to any seed share resale restrictions or escrow restrictions, if applicable, under the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.

In connection with the RTO Offering, Good Gamer will pay finders a fee of $188,455 and 411,137 Good Gamer Warrants exercisable at $1.00 for a period of one year from the date of issue.  The finders fees will be payable as follows: $165,455 to Haywood Securities Inc. and 411,137 share purchase warrants, $12,000 to Canaccord Genuity Corp., $8,000 to PI Financial Corp. and $4,000 to Leede Jones Gable Inc.  The finders are arm's length parties to the Company and Good Gamer.

Investing in Fantasy Sports Stocks

Investing in Fantasy Sports Stocks

When sports writer Daniel Okrent invented Rotisserie League Baseball in 1979, it’s unlikely that the “father of fantasy sports” could have imagined it would evolve into an US$8.9 billion market.

Of course, much of that growth can be attributed to advancements in technology. Fantasy sports magazines published in the late 1980s became websites in the 1990s, and eventually fantasy sports businesses; more recently there’s been a boom in fantasy sports apps for smartphones.

North America currently represents the largest market for fantasy sports services. Research and Markets estimates that more than 59 million people in the US and Canada play fantasy sports. However, India is set to experience significant market growth in the near-term future, with expectations that the number of players will rise from 20 million to a projected 150 million by 2022.

EAST SIDE GAMES GROUP ANNOUNCES NORMAL COURSE ISSUER BID

 East Side Games Group Inc. (TSX: EAGR) (OTC: EAGRF) (" ESGG " or the " Company ") announces that the Toronto Stock Exchange (" TSX ") has accepted its notice to proceed with a normal course issuer bid (the " NCIB ").

east side games logo (CNW Group/East Side Games Group)

The Company's board of directors believes that the market price of the Company's common shares (the " Shares "), from time to time, may not reflect the inherent value of the Company, and purchases of Shares pursuant to the NCIB may represent an appropriate and desirable use of the Company's funds.  Any purchases made under the NCIB will be made by the Company subject to favourable market conditions at the prevailing market price at the time of acquisition through the facilities of the TSX and other alternative Canadian trading systems.

Pursuant to the notice, during the twelve month period commencing August 16, 2022 and ending August 15, 2023 , the Company may purchase up to 4,076,819 of its Shares, representing approximately 5% of its outstanding Shares as of August 2 , 2022.  Under the NCIB, other than purchases made pursuant to block purchase exemptions, the Company may purchase up to 5,371 Shares on the TSX and other alternative Canadian trading systems during any trading day, which represents approximately 25% of the average daily trading volume of the Shares on the TSX for the past six calendar months, being 21,486 shares per day. The Company may cancel any Shares repurchased under the NCIB, or reserve them for awards under its equity compensation plan.

In conjunction with the NCIB, the Company has entered into an automatic share purchase plan (the " ASPP ") with a designated broker to allow for the purchase of its Shares under the NCIB at times when the Company normally would not be active in the market due to applicable regulatory restrictions or internal trading blackout periods.  The ASPP has been pre-cleared by the TSX and is effective August 16, 2022 , the commencement date of the NCIB.  The ASPP constitutes an "automatic securities purchase plan" under applicable Canadian securities laws.  Shares purchased under the ASPP will be included in computing the number of Shares purchased under the NCIB.  Outside of these internal trading blackout periods, purchases under the NCIB will be made based on management's discretion.

Although the Company intends to purchase Shares under its NCIB, there can be no assurances that any such purchases will be completed.
