Capstream further announces that in accordance with Section 8.5 of TSXV Policy 2.4 and with the approval of the TSXV, Capstream has entered into an agreement with Innovega whereby Capstream has made a bridge loan of US$75,000 to Innovega (the "Loan"). The Loan is evidenced by a promissory note and bears interest at the rate of 12% per annum.

Innovega, with offices in San Diego, California and Bellevue, Washington, is developing proprietary display technology based on eyewear and contact lenses that enhance human vision allowing the wearer to simultaneously access digital media while remaining fully engaged in their normal activities. Specifically, Innovega's display technology aims to enhance the user's normal vision to make it possible to view virtual and augmented ("VR & AR") reality images in the same way the user views the real world. The business model is to license patented video eyewear technology and platforms to digital media and consumer product companies, enabling them to deliver high-performance personal displays in a more compact and less invasive manner. The resulting products and platforms will offer unique benefits that include transparent optics, panoramic fields of view, and full HD/3D, VR & AR performances, while enabling stylish and highly functional eyewear designs. Similarly, Innovega will outsource and license the manufacture of iOptik™ contact lenses. Innovega's business model will offer contact lens manufacturers the opportunity to develop new and larger consumer segments that are not presently served by today's contact lens industry. Strategic partners / customers will benefit from Innovega's strong patents and other intellectual property based on Innovega being the first commercial designer of products in this new display category. Other supply-chain opportunities will exist for those companies that wish to participate in the manufacture of Innovega's personal eyewear platforms.
Investment in Axion
As previously disclosed, Capstream has entered into a revised letter of intent ("LOI") with certain beneficial shareholders (the "Axion Shareholders") of Axion which outlines the terms and conditions of a proposed transaction pursuant to which Capstream will acquire a minimum beneficial ownership interest of 25.48% of the issued and outstanding shares of Axion (the "Axion Investment") in exchange for 101,920,000 common shares of Capstream (based on a calculation of 1% of Axion for 4,000,000 common shares valued at $0.20 per share). Capstream will also issue 33,000,000 performance escrow shares (the "Escrow Shares") to be released to the Axion Shareholders subject to specific financial performance targets (the "Financial Performance Targets") being attained by Axion. Please see the Company's news release dated December 23, 2015 for full details on the terms of the Axion Investment.
Capstream and the Axion Shareholders continue to negotiate a definitive agreement relating to the Axion Investment that will supersede the LOI and have agreed to extend the timeline for finalization of the definitive agreement to March 31st, 2016, in order to finalize the optimal tax structure for the Axion Investment.
