December 14, 2021 - Intema U.S. subsidiary Generationz Gaming Entertainment signs letter of intent with Wild Rose Entertainment
Intema Solutions Inc. (TSXV: ITM, OTCMKTS: ITMZF) announces the creation of Generationz Gaming Entertainment Inc. (“Generationz”), a new U.S. subsidiary located in Chicago, Illinois, led by gaming veteran CEO William (Bill) Foss.
Generationz has signed a letter of intent (the “LOI”) with Wild Rose Entertainment (“Wild Rose”) to award Generationz a LOOT.BET sports wagering skin. The LOI will be contingent on, among other things, the negotiation of a definitive agreement, successful certification of the LOOT.BET betting platform by Gaming Laboratories International and obtention of a gaming license from the State of Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission.
“We are thrilled to welcome Bill to the Intema team and are impressed with what he has managed to accomplish in a very short period of time,” said Laurent Benezra, President and CEO of Intema. “The LOI with Wild Rose is just the beginning of what the LOOT.BET platform could bring to Intema once its acquisition is finalized.”
“As CEO of Generationz, I eagerly look forward to this next chapter of my career and to using my gaming knowledge and contacts to create a successful and profitable company,” said Bill Foss, CEO of Generationz. “Wild Rose has three establishments in the State of Iowa and a solid reputation in the state’s gaming community, where more than US$1 billion was wagered in 2021. Once everything is finalized, we will be able to offer a great product to customers of Iowa.”
Bill Foss has worked in the gaming industry for approximately 29 years, having started on the marketing side of operations before rising to general manager, which allowed him to gain an understanding of the operations and regulatory side of gaming. Bill has worked in corporate gaming as well as Native American gaming over the years and has been fortunate enough to learn gaming from some of the most influential and successful gaming operators and owners. Bill has worked in numerous areas and jurisdictions, including Illinois (St. Louis area), Indiana (Cincinnati area), Iowa (Dubuque), San Diego, Northern California (Mendocino County), New Mexico (Taos), Arizona and Northern Wisconsin.

December 13, 2021 - Intema announces granting of Isle of Man online gambling license
Intema Solutions Inc. (“Intema” or the “Corporation”) (TSXV: ITM, OTCMKTS: ITMZF) is very pleased to announce that the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission has approved the granting of an Online Gambling Regulation Act (OGRA) 2001 license to Livestream Esports Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Intema.
“The grant of the Isle of Man gambling license is major news for Intema and will have a significant positive impact on our future activities,” said Laurent Benezra, Intema’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “In particular, it allows us to comply with one of the TSX Venture Exchange’s main conditions for closing the acquisition of Livestream Gaming Inc. (“Livestream”), with its LOOT.BET online gaming platform. It will also enable us to conduct our iGaming activities through one of the world’s most prestigious gaming jurisdictions and, once we acquire our LOOT.BET platform, to white-label it to regulated gaming markets on a global scale. Finally, it gives LOOT.BET the same level of credibility as other online gambling platforms, throughout the gaming community and among our peers.”
“Once the license is issued, we will proceed with getting final approval from the TSXV and closing the Livestream acquisition, allowing us to start a new chapter of growth for Intema,” concluded Mr. Benezra.
The Isle of Man promotes the highest standards of jurisdictional control in the gaming industry, with extremely high ethical standards for owners and investors, making its license one of the toughest to acquire. The Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission gives out the fewest licenses per year. In addition, the license granted by that regulatory body has many financial and logistical benefits, and will allow Intema to offer continuously fun, safe and responsible gaming experiences for gamers around the world…

(DBA Amuka Esports) to acquire all the outstanding shares of Parabellum Media Inc. (“Parabellum”), owner of Parabellum Esports and Northern Shield Academy.
Parabellum Esports was founded in 2020 and is one of Canada’s top esports teams. It is currently fielding rosters in Rainbow Six, Rocket League, CSGO and iRacing, supported by a team of 10 content creators, reaching over 300,000 followers on various social media platforms. Its roster includes both men and women and was one of the first Canadian teams to support competitive women esports. Parabellum is currently sponsored by Zowie, Corsair, Whoosh and CoinSmart, and is the top-selling Canadian esports brand at Sector Six Apparel.
For its part, Northern Shield Academy is a developmental team that works with up-and-coming esports athletes to help them take their game to the next level. Participants in the academy have the opportunity to learn from professional coaches, analysts and scouts to help them reach the next level in their gaming careers.
“We are thrilled to welcome Parabellum to the Intema team, which further strengthens our ecosystem with the addition of its leading esports team, as well as a training academy for the next generation of players,” said Laurent Benezra, President and CEO of Intema. “In its short history, Parabellum has been very successful at promoting its brand and we believe that it will play a fast-growing role in Intema’s success.”
“We are excited to join Intema and become part of their strategy to offer a unique platform combining esports and iGaming,” said Ben Feferman, CEO of Amuka Esports “We have proven in a very short period of time that our business model works, and we are confident that we will be able to accelerate our growth through Intema’s unique ecosystem of companies, targeting specific complementary areas while continuing to build and promote our academy for the next generation of players.”
Summary of the Proposed Transaction
The letter of intent stipulates that the Corporation and Amuka Esports will negotiate and enter into a definitive agreement with respect to the Proposed Transaction (the “Definitive Agreement“), providing for Intema to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Parabellum for a total consideration of $700,000 (the “Purchase Price”), to be paid in common shares of Intema, which shares will be subject to a voluntary escrow on to the following terms:

November 30, 2021 - Intema submits application to become a fully registered internet gaming and sports betting operator in Ontario
Intema Solutions Inc. (“Intema” or the “Corporation”) (TSXV: ITM, OTCMKTS: ITMZF) is pleased to announce that it has applied to the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) to become a fully registered operator of Internet gaming and sports betting in Ontario, Canada’s largest province.
On August 27, 2021, the Canadian government enacted Bill C-218, which gave each of Canada’s provincial and territorial governments discretion to conduct and manage single-event sports betting in their respective provinces. Ontario is the first province to accept registration applications from prospective iGaming operators, having published its draft standards for regulated online betting and gaming markets in August, soon after Canada legalized single-event wagering, before releasing the finalized standards last month.
“With the acquisitions of HypeX.gg and Team BH in 2021 and the pending acquisition of LOOT.BET, it is critical for our followers and our customers to have access to our growing array of esports and iGaming products and services in regulated markets worldwide,” said Laurent Benezra, President and CEO of Intema. “Apart from being Canada’s most populous province, Ontario has taken a leading role in regulating iGaming practices, which bodes very well for newly licensed companies in this large potential market. In addition to the AGCO application, our Isle of Man gaming license application has been formally accepted for review in October, and we plan to apply for other licenses in select regulated markets around the world so that our secure esports and iGaming platforms become available to all.”

(“Livestream”). More information about the Proposed Transaction is included in the press release dated May 3, 2021.
“Today marks an important milestone for Intema,” said Laurent Benezra, Intema’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We understood when we entered into the agreement with Livestream and took the deliberate decision to complete this transaction as a TSXV Issuer that we would need to invest the time and resources to meet their enhanced requirements and fully commit to the process. We have aggressively advanced the Proposed Transaction since, thanks to the attentiveness and solutions-oriented approach of the TSXV, to secure conditional approval of our Proposed Transaction.”

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to finalize the acquisition of Team BH,” said Laurent Benezra, President and CEO of Intema. “Matteo built Team BH from the ground up, and in just three years, transformed it into a global juggernaut and Canada’s second most followed Fortnite esports team. Team BH has an engaged audience yet has barely scratched the surface as far as impact, influence, and reach in the esports space. We envision Team BH as a game-changing member of our growing esports ecosystem and are ready to help them take things to the next level.”
“I’m extremely proud of everything we’ve accomplished at Team BH, but the work is far from finished,” said Matteo Di Penta, Founder and CEO of Team Bloodhounds Inc. “As a full-fledged member of the Intema family, we now have the additional resources and expertise to increase our standing in the gaming community and make our brand a household name worldwide. We have big plans for Team BH – and this relationship is only going to help expedite the process.”
Di Penta launched Team BH in April 2018, and it has quickly become one of the most successful esports brands, with a roster of influencers, professional gamers, and streamers, and more than 7.25 million combined followers across YouTube, Twitch, Instagram, and TikTok.
“To keep the good news coming, I would also like to announce that our premier Influencers, including Randi “BH Motion” Tetzschner, Russell “BH Poetic” Tetzschner, Michael “BH Woods” Nelles, and Jose “BH Lvcid” Flores have all signed two-year contract extensions,” added Di Penta. “They’ve been instrumental in our growth from the start, and I’m excited to continue working with them to expand Team BH.”
Currently, Team Bloodhounds Inc. has 14 Fortnite players signed to its roster. The team hopes to extend into Activision’s Call of Duty and Riot Games’ Valorant. Team BH does not yet have competitive or content teams in either game, but this will be a top priority now that the transaction is complete.
