(“BNP”) announce the mutual agreement to terminate the letter of intent (the “LOI”) entered into by the two parties on October 16, 2017. The LOI was in respect of a proposed reverse take-over transaction pursuant to which LEO proposed to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares in the capital of BNP.
