“I’d like to thank both Randy and JP for their work with the Company not only during this transition period but throughout their tenure with the Company. I am thrilled to be stepping into the role as the Company’s Chairman & CEO and am extremely optimistic about the future of the Company,” stated Todd Ault, currently the Vice Chairman of RiskOn. “RiskOn is building an innovative Artificial Intelligence product and service offering, along with its Metaverse Social gaming platform powered by Meetkai. My team and I are committed to continuing to execute on our growth plans for the Company.”

Additionally, the Company has concluded that, for regulatory reasons, it will be unable to effect the distribution of its shares of White River common stock (the “WTRV Shares”) as contemplated by the press releases issued by the Company on each of September 11, 2022 and September 30, 2022 and described in greater detail in the registration statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-268707) filed by White River (the “Registration Statement”). In an effort to attempt to fulfill its original intent to transfer shares (the “Distributable Shares”) to beneficial and registered shareholders (the “Holders”) as of September 30, 2022, the intended record date for the distribution described in the Registration statement, the Company will send each such Holder an agreement (the “Letter Agreement”) whereby qualified Holders can (i) demonstrate to the Company’s satisfaction that he/she/it in fact was a beneficial holder of the Company’s common or preferred stock as of September 30 2022 and (ii) affirm that such Holder is an “accredited investor” as that term is defined in Rule 501 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).

Jay Puchir, the Company’s departing CFO, has agreed to transition to a limited scope officer role to help facilitate the validation and transfer of WTRV Shares. Any beneficial holder who can provide evidence of share ownership as of September 30, 2022 and qualifies as an accredited investor is encouraged to contact the Company at to request additional information about obtaining potential WTRV Shares. All Distributable Shares will be “restricted securities” as such term is defined in Rule 144 of the Securities Act.
