(“AMPD” or the “Company”, CSE: AMPD; FRA: 2Q0) is pleased to announce the closing of the previously announced private placement financing for gross proceeds the amount of CAD $978,262.50 (the “Private Placement”).

Change of Year-End

AMPD also announces that it is changing its fiscal year-end to May 31, from its current fiscal year-end of February 28. The notice for the year-end change required under National Instrument 51-102 has been filed under the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com.
