Clip Money Inc. Announces Closing of First Tranche of Non-Brokered Private Placement
TORONTO, Dec. 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clip Money Inc. (TSX-V: CLIP) (OTCQB: CLPMF) (“Clip Money” or the “Company”), a company that operates a multi-bank self-service deposit system for businesses, is pleased to announce that it has closed the first tranche of a non-brokered private placement of 4,524,637 units of the Company (each a “Unit”) at a price of CAD$0.45 per Unit for gross proceeds of US$1,490,983.19 (the U.S. dollar equivalent of CAD$2,036,086.65) (the “Private Placement”).
Each Unit consisted of one common share in the capital of the Company (each a “Common Share”) and one Common Share purchase warrant (each a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of CAD$0.65 for a period of 36 months following the issuance of the Units. The expiry date of the Warrants will be subject to an acceleration right in favour of the Company that is exercisable if the common shares of the Company trade at or above a volume-weighted average trading price of CAD$1.30 on the TSX Venture Exchange on any 10-consecutive trading days following the closing date of the Private Placement. If the acceleration right is exercised by the Company, the Warrants will expire on the 30th day after the Company issues a press release announcing that it has exercised such acceleration right.
Finder's fees of CAD$55,126 are payable in cash on a portion of the Private Placement to parties at arm's length to the Company. In addition, 122,502 non-transferable finder's warrants are being issued (the “Finder Warrants”). The Finder Warrants shall be exercisable at a price of CAD$0.65 for a period of 36 months following the date hereof.
Certain insiders of the Company have participated in the Private Placement for 1,155,996 Units in the aggregate. Such participation represents a related-party transaction under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”), but the transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the subject matter of the transaction, nor the consideration paid, exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
All securities issued in connection with the Private Placement are subject to a four-month and one day hold period in Canada, during which time the securities may not be traded.
The Company plans to use the net proceeds from the Private Placement for network expansion and customer acquisition, new unit capital expenditures, business operations and technology and for general corporate purposes. Closing of a second tranche of the Private Placement is expected to occur in the first quarter of 2023.
