Apr 9 2013 12:00AM



TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/09/13 -- Canada Pacific Capital Corp. ("CPCC" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: CPR), a capital pool company, today announces that at the annual and special shareholders' meeting (the "Meeting") held on April 1, 2013, shareholders of the Company passed a resolution to approve the application to list the Company's common shares on the NEX board of the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV"). Pursuant to TSXV Policy 2.4 - Capital Pool Companies, 50% of the seed shares purchased by Non-Arm's Length Parties, as that term is defined under the TSXV Policies, at a discount to the initial public offering price must be cancelled upon transfer of a capital pool company from the TSXV to NEX. Accordingly, 1,050,000 common shares of the Company held by Non-Arm's Length Parties have been cancelled. These actions are a result of the Company's inability to complete a Qualifying Transaction within the time period prescribed by the TSXV.
