Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - November 9, 2021) - Hypercharge Networks Corp.

("Spark") pursuant to a share exchange agreement (the "Agreement") dated as of November 1, 2021, among the Company, Spark and the shareholders of Spark (collectively, the "Transaction").

"Spark is one of the early pioneers in the EV charging industry, bringing over 5 years of direct industry experience and over 30 years' experience in the commercial electrical services industry."

"The combination of Spark and Hypercharge has brought together two great companies with experience and leadership in the EV space. With this valued combination, Hypercharge will deliver on its mission to accelerate the mass adoption of electric vehicles and to be an active participant in the protection of the environment for future generations." - Sion Jones, Founder and President of Spark Charging Solutions Inc.
