Paradigm Resource Closes Investment in Provider of Breakthrough Technology for the Extraction & Recovery of Latent Precious Metals from Complex Ores PR Newswire SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 20, 2013 SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Paradigm Resource Management Corporation ("Paradigm Resource" or the "Company"; OTCBB: PRDC) today announced that it has completed the previously announced strategic investment in TOSS Plasma Technologies Limited ("TPT") by way of issuing new shares of the Company. Founded in 2003, TPT has developed a breakthrough technology and processing system, using ultra-temperature (between 8,000 degrees Celsiusto 12,000 degrees Celsius) radio frequency plasma torch, to extract latent precious metals from certain types of complex ores. TPT is headquartered in Tokyo with a pilot plant and research center based in Yamagata prefecture in Japan. TPT's target market is a traditional industry with an abundance of complex ores containing "latent" precious metals that have not been exploited due to technical limitation of available minerals processing technologies. The RF Plasma technology provides the technical breakthrough that has been validated by the phenomenal post-processing assay results on recovered precious metals from select complex ores. TRANSACTION TERMS The transaction was carried out by way of a Stock Purchase and Exchange Agreement between AMSA Development Technology Co. Ltd. dated July 24, 2013 (the "Agreement"), whereby the Company will issue 80,700,000 common shares in exchange for 804,600 shares, or 30%, of the outstanding common stock of TPT. The implementation of this transaction shall be subject to approval by at least 66 2/3% of the votes cast at a special meeting of Paradigm Resource shareholders. Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, the transaction is also subject to applicable regulatory approvals and the satisfaction of certain conditions customary in transactions of this nature. The Agreement also provides for, among other things, appointment of Mr. Takanori Ted Ozaki (currently TPT Founder and President) as the Company's new Chief Executive Officer, non-solicitation covenants as well as the Company's option to repurchase up to 44,833,333 shares from TPT either in the form of cash or common shares.
