Hunter Technology Brand Update and Advisory Board Extension

June 7, 2021

VANCOUVER, British Columbia – June 7, 2021 – Hunter Technology Corp. (TSX-V: HOC; OTCQB: HOILF; WKN: A2QEYH, FSE: RWPM, ISIN: CA4457371090) (“Hunter” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the unveiling of a new logo, company website and social media channels as part of an extensive rebranding initiative.

Hunter is unveiling an updated visual identity and communication channels manifesting the Company’s strategy to leverage its legacy in hydrocarbons and drive the industry’s transition to integrated digital supply chains.  

The original Company logo expressed its roots in exploration and production of crude oil, styled after a solid barrel of oil. The new identity is a more dynamic evolution of this symbol, illustrating both, core values and business focus. Leveraging modern technology, Hunter today enables better business by allowing trade partners to connect in a trusted environment, build relationships and use more versatile transaction processes to their advantage. The new logo symbolizes the most recognized image of closing a deal—a hand reaching out to shake—combined with a representation of flexible supply chains in commodities building on blockchain technology.

In addition to an upgraded visual language, Hunter is expanding its communication activities. The recently unveiled new website is constructed for effective and dynamic sharing of updates and presenting product development and market progress. Enhanced social media channels allow a broader, meaningful connection to market participants and stakeholders and real-time communication of developments.
