The Financing was conducted in connection with INX's going-public transaction on the TSX Venture Exchange via a Reverse Take Over of Valdy Investments Ltd.

Upon completion of the Transaction, INX will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Valdy, and the combined entity (the "Resulting Issuer") will continue the business of INX.
Shy Datika, Co-Founder & President of INX commented, "INX breaks new ground by connecting the legacy world of equity capital markets with the innovative blockchain-based digital asset class. We are the first company to issue a Security Token through an SEC-registered public offering, and we fortify it now with further transparency and regulatory clarity with this upcoming listing. We strongly believe that digital assets are the future of equity capital markets, and aim to become the bridge between both worlds."
Additional details regarding the private placement and the Transaction are included in a Form 6-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 31, 2021.
