June 21, 2018 – Vancouver, BC - Alexandra Capital Corp. (“Alexandra”) (CSE:AXC) (OTCQB:AXDRF) management is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into a definitive agreement dated June 21, 2018 (the “Purchase Agreement”) with the shareholders of Plymouth Rock Technologies Inc. (“Plymouth Rock”), a Maryland corporation which is developing certain systems and technologies related to remotely detecting assault firearms, suicide bombs and other threats concealed on the person or a carry bag. Plymouth Rock and its shareholders are at arm’s-length to the Company. The transaction, which is subject to regulatory and final closing conditions, constitutes a “Change of Business” (as defined in the policies of the Canadian Securities Exchange) that will see the Company transition from a resource issuer to a technology issuer and will require the approval of the shareholders of the Company.
Under the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Company will acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding common shares of Plymouth Rock from shareholders Dana Wheeler, Carl Cagliarini and Dr. Stuart Harmer (together the “Sellers”), in consideration of the issuance of 3,000,000 common shares (the “Consideration Shares”) of the Company. The Consideration Shares will be subject be subject to a resale restricted period of four months from the closing of the transaction and will bear a restrictive legend to this effect. The Consideration Shares may be required by the Exchange to be held in and subject to escrow or pooling.
The Company will engage Mr. Dana Wheeler as President and CEO of the Company following closing of the transaction, and he will be appointed to the board of directors of the Company. Mr. Wheeler is a recognized industry veteran with over 35 year’s experience in RF, Microwave and Millimeter-wave technologies. He has a proven track record of successful start-ups, mergers and acquisitions. He has held positions with M/A-Com, Millitech, Lockheed Martin, Harmonix Corp (HXI), Terabeam, Proxim and was the founder of Radio Physics Inc. Mr. Wheeler is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth.
No other changes in management or the board are anticipated.
The transaction is subject to a number of conditions including, but not limited to: requisite regulatory, corporate and third-party approvals, including Exchange approval; all required board approvals; and completion of due diligence investigations to the satisfaction of the board of directors of the Company and the Sellers.
Plymouth Rock is focused on developing technologies related to remotely detecting assault firearms and suicide bombs concealed on the person or a carry bag. Plymouth Rock focuses on detection methods without the need for a checkpoint or the compliance of the suspect who is being screened. Plymouth Rock’s planned technologies encompass the very latest radar technologies and remote trace analysis methods for quickly detecting, locating and identifying the presence of threats.
Plymouth Rock’s core technologies include: (1) Wi-Fi radar techniques for threat detection screening in Wi-Fi enabled zones in buildings and places, such as airports, shopping malls, schools and sports venues (the “Wi-Ti”); and (2) A Millimetre Wave Airborne Thermographic Inspection Lightweight Diffraction Antenna that can be mounted on drones (“Miriad”).
In addition to the above technologies Plymouth Rock also has access to a so-called “shoebox scanner”. The “shoe-scanner” concept is essentially an RF imager that uses microwave radar to detect threat materials hidden in footwear without the subject removing that footwear for x-ray analysis.
The threat detection systems market is led by the public infrastructure which is further segmented into airports, railway stations, sports stadiums, shopping malls, pilgrimages, and others. The high demand for threat detection devices from airports and shopping malls, especially for explosive detectors, video surveillance systems, and biometric systems, is one of the major factors driving the growth of the threat detection systems market for the public infrastructure application.
Change of Name
The Company intends to change its name from Alexandra Capital Corp. to Plymouth Rock Technologies Inc. The Company will reserve an appropriate trading symbol to correspond with the name change. Both the change of name and change of trading symbol are subject to approval by the Exchange.
