“We are pleased with the addition of Enertopia’s property,” commented Dr. Bill Willoughby, President, and CEO of Cypress. “The property is a continuation of the lithium-bearing units in Cypress’ project, with Enertopia’s drilling having shown similar values of lithium.

We expect this consolidation of Clayton Valley lithium claystone projects to be of significant value for both Enertopia and Cypress shareholders.”
The purchase consideration for the Enertopia Project comprised US$1.1 million in cash and the issuance of 3,000,000 common shares in the capital of Cypress (“Consideration Shares”). The transaction also included Enertopia entering into an Irrevocable Proxy and Voting Agreement and Lock-Up Agreement with Cypress in relation to the Consideration Shares. (See Company’s February 24, 2022 new release for further information). In terms of these agreements, Enertopia inter alia agreed to; (i) vote in favor of shareholder resolutions supported by Cypress’ Board of Directors (ii) certain limitations to the circumstances under which it could sell the Consideration Shares, and (iii) a 12-month standstill in relation to certain corporate activities pertaining to Cypress shares.
