In connection with the transaction, K-9 issued approximately 12.9 million new shares of its common stock in consideration of 100% of the membership interests of Aussie Soles.

The former owners have an ability to earn into 6 million additional K-9 shares assuming certain operating milestones are met.

In addition, 2.1 million shares are being held in escrow pending the satisfaction of certain representations and warranties that were made by Aussie Soles.

Immediately upon closing of the exchange, interest holders of Aussie Soles will own approximately 33% of K-9. The transaction is not being structured as a reverse merger.
