Good Gamer Business
Good Gamer is an Esports real money skill gaming operator with the ambition to become a leader in the skill gaming arena in Canada and the United States.
The Good Gamer tournament management platform, which was beta-launched on April 21, 2021 in Canada and the United States, allows game developers to enable real money social competition in their games and allow the game developers to host casual Esports tournaments for mobile players to win real money prizes (the “Tournament Management Platform”). Players will be able to fund their account with real money, which then gets credited with a corresponding amount into the player’s online app account for the game that they are entering in.
Good Gamer has assembled a management and support team with a proven track record of delivering profitable gaming businesses. The existing structure of the business allows the building of the Tournament Management Platform, a major long-term asset – particularly the front end which is entirely bespoke. The IP and the backbone technology to the Tournament Management Platform is primarily developed for Good Gamer under the direction of Chief Technology Officer, Keith Bussey in Montreal, Quebec.
Pursuant to the terms of an amalgamation agreement (the “Amalgamation Agreement”) among the Company, Good Gamer Corp. (“Good Gamer”) and a subsidiary of the Company, the Company acquired all of the issued and outstanding securities of Good Gamer from Good Gamer’s securityholders. Each holder of a Good Gamer common share received one (1) post-Consolidation common share of the Company (a “Resulting Issuer Share”) for each Good Gamer common share held. All currently outstanding convertible securities of Good Gamer, specifically Good Gamer warrants were exchanged or replaced with Resulting Issuer warrants based on a 1:1 ratio and on the same economic terms and conditions as previously issued.
A total of 30,414,088 Resulting Issuer Shares were issued to the Good Gamer Shareholders. After completion of the Transaction, the Good Gamer securityholders became securityholders of the Company.
In conjunction with Closing, the Company will pay a finder’s fee to Madale Investment Corp., an arm’s length party, of 1,000,000 Resulting Issuer Shares and 1,000,000 share purchase warrants (“Finder’s Warrants”). Each Finder’s Warrant will be exercisable at $0.40 per share for a period of two years from the date of issue. These securities will be subject to restrictions on resale for a period of four months from the date of issue.
The Company will also issue a total of 212,000 Resulting Issuer Shares in connection with the settlement of $84,800 of indebtedness owed to American Resource Management Consultants Inc.
In conjunction with closing of the Transaction, the Company completed a consolidation on the basis of five pre-consolidation common shares of the Company were exchanged for one post-consolidation common share of the Company (the “Consolidation”). The Company also changed its name to Good Gamer Entertainment Inc. on closing of the Transaction (the “Name Change”). As part of the Consolidation and the Name Change, the CUSIP for the Resulting Issuer Shares was changed to 382113108.
Non-Brokered Private Placement

As a result of closing of the Transaction, each Subscription Receipt automatically converted into one common share of Good Gamer (an “Underlying Share”) and one-half of one share purchase warrant of Good Gamer (an “Underlying Warrant”). Pursuant to the Amalgamation Agreement, the Underlying Shares and Underlying Warrants were exchanged into Resulting Issuer Shares and common share purchase warrants of the Company (“Resulting Issuer Warrants”). Each Resulting Issuer Warrant is exercisable into a Resulting Issuer Share at an exercise price of $1.00 until October 1, 2023.
Under the Concurrent Private Placement, Good Gamer paid a cash commission of $188,455 to eligible finders and issued a total 411,137 non-transferable common share purchase warrants (each a “Broker Warrant”). Each Broker Warrant will be exercisable into one Resulting Issuer Share at a price of $1.00 for a period of one year from the date of issue.
The proceeds of the Concurrent Private Placement will be used for platform enhancements, user acquisition and working capital over the next twelve months.
