TORONTO, Sept. 11, 2023 (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 a non-brokered private placement of common shares in the capital of the Company (the “Common Shares ”) at a price of CDN$0.23 per Common Share (the “Equity Price”) for gross proceeds of approximately US$4,900,000 (the “Equity Financing”). The Equity Price was reserved with the TSX Venture Exchange on September 5, 2023. Separately, Clip is also pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement of secured convertible notes of the Company for gross proceeds of US$6,100,000 (the “Convertible Notes Financing”, together with the Equity Financing, the “Financings”). The lead subscriber under the Financings is a strategic investor (the “Investor”) who will be investing an aggregate amount of US$10,000,000 across the Financings. US$1,000,000 will be taken up across the Financings by another investor. In connection with the Financings, an affiliate of the Investor will also be entering into a commercial partnership with the Company.
The secured convertible notes issued under the Convertible Notes Financing (the “Convertible Note”) will be due and payable on the date that is 60 months from the date of issuance (the “Maturity Date”) and will accrue simple interest at a rate of 8% per annum, payable at the Maturity Date. The Convertible Notes will be convertible into common shares of the Company (“Common Shares”) at any time, in whole or in part, on or prior to the Maturity Date at the option of the holder, based on the principal amount of the Convertible Notes being converted divided by a conversion price of CDN$0.26 per Common Share. No accrued interest shall be paid on any part of the Convertible Notes that is converted into Common Shares. The Convertible Notes will be secured by a first lien security interest in all of the assets of the Company.
Closing of the Equity Financing and the Convertible Notes Financing is subject to Clip Money obtaining all necessary corporate and regulatory approvals, including approval of the TSXV, as well as shareholder consent. All securities to be issued in connection with the Equity Financing and the Convertible Notes Financing will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus a day from the date of issuance in accordance with applicable securities legislation in Canada. Following completion of the Financings, the Investor will be a Control Person of the Company (as such term is defined in the policies of the TSXV).
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from Equity Financing and the Convertible Notes Financing for general corporate and working capital purposes. Both the Equity Financing and the Convertible Notes Financing are expected to close before the end of the month.
"We are excited to announce a strategic collaboration with an industry leader. This partnership encompasses a substantial investment, marking the largest to date for Clip, along with a strategic commercial agreement poised to significantly enhance our company's distribution and product portfolio. We’re looking forward to sharing more after this transaction closes later this month.”
