Seven Aces Limited (the 'Company' or 'Seven Aces') (TSXV: ACES, OTC: ACEXF) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an amending agreement dated July 30, 2020 (the 'Amending Agreement') with affiliates of Trive Capital Management LLC ('Trive Capital'), to amend the definitive arrangement agreement (the 'Arrangement Agreement') dated June 11, 2020 among the parties (the 'Arrangement').

Pursuant to the Amending Agreement, the cash consideration payable to the holders of common shares (the 'Shares') of Seven Aces (other than Ascendant Group Holdings Inc., a company controlled by Mr. Manu Sekhri (CEO of Seven Aces) (the 'Rollover Shareholder')) under the Arrangement has been increased to CDN $2.77 per Share, representing an increase of approximately 28.8% (or CDN $0.62 per Share) to the prior price of CDN $2.15 per Share. The revised price also represents an approximate 57.4% premium to the closing price of the Shares on June 11, 2020 (CDN $1.76), the last trading day prior to the public announcement of the Arrangement. Mark Lerohl, Member of the independent Special Committee of Seven Aces' Board of Directors, stated: 'Following discussions with Trive Capital and our shareholders, Trive Capital offered to increase the consideration payable to Seven Aces shareholders by CDN $0.62 per Share, which we believe represents a compelling opportunity for our shareholders. The Special Committee and the Board of Directors have determined that the proposed transaction with Trive Capital, as amended, is in the best interest of Seven Aces and is fair to the Seven Aces shareholders (other than the Rollover Shareholder). Accordingly, the Special Committee and the Board of Directors (with Mr. Sekhri abstaining) unanimously support the Arrangement, as amended.' 'After extensive discussions with a number of shareholders and having entered into voting support agreements with additional supporting shareholders of Seven Aces, including Bedford Park Capital Corporation and JC Clark Ltd., to secure their support for the transaction we agreed to increase the price to CDN $2.77 per Share,' said Conner Searcy, Managing Partner of Trive Capital, 'We are pleased to have received the endorsement of these important institutional investors for the transaction and believe this achieves the best possible outcome for all stakeholders.' The Amending Agreement includes an updated version of the plan of arrangement, which reflects the increased per Share consideration and certain other technical changes to the timing and manner of implementation of certain corporate steps in connection with the transaction, including technical changes requested by the Ontario Ministry of Government and Consumer Services, none of which will negatively impact shareholders of Seven Aces.
