TORONTO, ONTARIO, JULY 13, 2018 –The Special Committee of the board of directors of BitRush Corp. (CSE:BRH, Frankfurt:0XSN) (“BRH”, “BitRush” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide the following update to shareholders.
Further to the January 9, 2018 press release titled BITRUSH CORP. OBTAINS COURT ORDER DIRECTING VALUATION the Special Committee of the board of directors is pleased to report that the Company was successful in its Application against Werner Boehm (former CEO), Alfred Dobias (former Director), MezzaCap Investments UK Ltd.(MezzaCap) and Elfriede Sixt (former Accounting). Ontario Superior Court of Justice Commercial List Court File No. CV-16-11653-00CL.
In its decision of November 14, 2017, the Court declared that Werner Boehm had breached his fiduciary duties to BitRush Corp. and caused the affairs of the Company to be conducted in an oppressive manner that unfairly disregarded and was unfairly prejudicial to BitRush Corp. and its shareholders. The Court ordered, among other things, that Boehm and MezzaCap repay $561,373 that had been misappropriated from BitRush and ordered costs of $225,956 payable to BitRush. In the event that the $561,373 was not repaid, it was ordered that BitRush could cancel shares held by MezzaCap of equivalent value. The funds have not been repaid.
On June 29, 2018, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice amended its decision of November 14, 2017 to fix the appropriate share price for the cancellation of BitRush shares held by MezzaCap at $0.005, which resulted in an order for the cancellation of up to 112,274,600 shares held by MezzaCap. MezzaCap is currently the registered shareholder of 68,894,175 shares of BitRush, all of which will be cancelled pursuant to the order.
The Special Committee board members Hansjoerg Wagner and Karsten Arend jointly stated that this is a major success for the shareholders of BitRush and that the board of directors has begun the process of identifying additional board members and the future strategic direction of the Company. In keeping with the above, the Special Committee will continue working towards lifting the cease trade order.
