The funding, totalling $21.5 million, was concluded through the issuance of 71.8 million common shares (taking account of the one-for-10 consolidation described below). The statutory hold periods for the common shares issued under the financing will expire on September 30, 2012.

We look forward to closing on a second tranche of funding and making further announcements as we move forward in the coming weeks."

Separately, Difference Capital has completed a number of initiatives approved by shareholders at its annual and special meeting on May 24, 2012:
  • Difference Capital's existing common shares have been consolidated on the basis of one post-consolidation share for every ten existing shares.  Prior to the financing described above, the number of post-consolidation common shares issued and outstanding was 15,096,353.
  • The company has changed its name to Difference Capital Funding Inc. As a result, the ticker symbol will change to DCF, effective Friday, June 1, 2012.
  • Difference Capital has transferred 14.9 million shares of Feronia Inc. (TSXV: FRN) to a trust created for the benefit of eligible shareholders.
