                         ("IamFire" or the "Company") 
 
                    Corporate Update & Strategic Financing 
 
CEO & Director, Burns Singh Tennent-Bhohi statement, 
 
"Following IamFire's restructure and recapitalisation last year, the Board and 
I are reviewing a number of different strategies which complement the direction 
we are moulding for the Company.  This includes adding skilled senior 
management and Directors, as well as key long-term financial partners. 
 
These two together will provide the Company with valuable liquidity and the 
skills needed to identify and secure a strong dealflow to provide value to the 
Company and our shareholders. 
 
IamFire's focus is in three industry classes; 
 
Natural Resources, Mining & Exploration, and Disruptive Technology. 
 
Our core ethos is to seek, evaluate and transact opportunities exposed to the 
growth areas in global consumption which generate disproportionately higher 
capital returns on investment.  The Company will utilise non-cash dilutive 
instruments where possible. 
 
During a period of heightened volatility in global financial markets, IamFire 
has raised gross proceeds in this financing of GBP500,000 which was 
oversubscribed.  Thank you to those existing shareholders who participated.  I 
also welcome our new shareholders to IamFire and thank you for your commitment. 
 
 
The completion of this financing secures the Company with strong working 
capital and includes the participation of a broad range of investors not 
normally seen in such a small company including; Family Offices, UHNWs, 
Investment Funds, Retail Investors, Existing Shareholders & Directors 
participation.  To re-enforce this point, it is critically important the 
Company's register represents a diversified and robust presence, irrespective 
of our present market valuation.  It is rather in preparation for the Company's 
future endeavours. 
 
The Board and I look forward to providing further updates to the market as we 
continue to develop and streamline the Company's corporate strategy."
