Valereum Appoints Leading Global Consulting Firm Z/Yen Group as Strategic Adviser to Assist with the Gibraltar Stock Exchange

Valereum is pleased to announce that it has appointed London based Z/Yen Group Ltd ("Z/Yen") as its strategic adviser and to provide a commercial review of the Company's business plans for the Gibraltar Stock Exchange ("GSX").

In addition, Z/Yen will assist Valereum with the preparation of a prospectus for an additional listing of the Company's shares on a major exchange later this year.

Richard Poulden, Chairman of Valereum, commented: "I am delighted to report that the acquisition by Valereum of 90% of the Gibraltar Stock Exchange is near completion. Recent volatility in global crypto markets has led to much press, government and central bank commentary about the need to regulate crypto markets. We have stated on many occasions that the future of crypto is in a regulated environment and this makes the repurposed GSX as a fully regulated exchange even more relevant than when we embarked on this transaction. I am pleased to announce today the engagement of the globally recognised and highly respected financial services experts Z/Yen Group Ltd to be Valereum's key strategic advisers. It is a real pleasure to be working with Z/Yen on the acquisition and transformation of the GSX. I encourage all shareholders to look at Z/Yen's website and see how many of the world's largest financial services groups use Z/Yen."

Professor Michael Mainelli, Chairman of Z/Yen commented: "We have watched Valereum's GSX project with interest and look forward to being part of building a new and vibrant exchange in Gibraltar."
