The TSX Venture Exchange fell 4.97 points to 742.11 Thursday. Lucas Birdsall's second capital pool shell, Castlebar Capital Corp. (CBAR: halted), plans to acquire a Finnish tech firm called Tellyo Oy for the shell's qualifying transaction. The shell, which has 2.3 million shares issued, will issue 50 million shares to its target's shareholders.
Tellyo was formed in 2012 and has offices in Helsinki, Lodz (near Krakow) and Croydon (near London). It has a software platform for live video editing and live streaming. Its main target customers are sports broadcasters. Tellyo charges 2,500 euros for each sporting event, giving a customer three days of access to its platform. Alternatively, a customer may pay 2,750 euros a month on an annual contract. We should find out whether the company is profitable when the shell submits its QT filing statement.
