Vancouver, Canada – Interlapse Technologies Corp. (TSXV: INLA) (“Interlapse” or the “Company“) announces that the Company’s shares will resume trading on the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSX-V”) on Monday, March 22, 2021.

The Company’s previously announced acquisition of 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of LQwD Financial Corp., a decentralized finance company creating enterprise grade infrastructure and institutional liquidity for the Lightning Network, in exchange for common shares of Interlapse (the “Transaction”) is continuing to progress.

The Transaction remains subject to a number of terms and conditions, including Interlapse shareholder approval, the completion of a concurrent financing generating proceeds of up to $5.0 million, and the approval of the TSX-V and other applicable regulatory authorities. Upon completion of this arm’s length Transaction, LQWD will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Interlapse.
