DraftTeam Announces Terms of Amendment to Price for Private Placement Financing

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - July 17, 2015) -


DraftTeam Daily Fantasy Sports Corp. (the "Corporation" or "DraftTeam") (TSX VENTURE:DTS) is pleased to announce the updated pricing and final terms of its previously-announced private placement offering (the "Offering") of Subscription Receipts (the "Subscription Receipts") of the Corporation. The Offering will continue to be conducted by a syndicate of agents, led by Beacon Securities Limited ("Beacon") and including Industrial Alliance Securities Inc. and Salman Partners Inc. (together with Beacon, the "Agents"), who have agreed to offer Subscription Receipts on a commercially-reasonable "best-efforts" agency basis pursuant to private placement exemptions from the prospectus requirements of applicable securities laws at a price of C$0.10 per Subscription Receipt for gross proceeds to the Corporation of approximately C$5 million. The Corporation has granted an option to the Agents to increase the size of the Offering by up to 7,500,000 Subscription Receipts at the Issue Price, exercisable in whole or in part by the Agents at any time up to 48 hours prior to the closing of the Offering for additional gross proceeds to the Corporation of up to C$0.75 million. If this option is exercised in full, the gross proceeds to the Corporation will be approximately C$5.75 million.

Each Subscription Receipt will entitle the holder thereof to receive, without payment of additional consideration, one unit (a "Unit") of the Corporation, such Unit to be immediately exchanged for one Unit of the resulting issuer (the "Resulting Issuer") upon completion of the Corporation's previously announced merger with Fantasy Aces LLC (the "Merger").

Each Unit of the Resulting Issuer shall be comprised of one common share of the Resulting Issuer (a "Resulting Issuer Share") and one purchase warrant (a "Warrant") of the Resulting Issuer. Each Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Resulting Issuer Share at an exercise price of C$0.15 per Resulting Issuer Share for a period of 24 months following the completion of the Merger. The expiry date of the Warrants may be accelerated by the Resulting Issuer, at its sole option, at any time in the event that the closing price of the Resulting Issuer Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSX-V"), or such other exchange on which the Resulting Issuer Shares may primarily trade from time to time, at a volume-weighted average price of C$0.225 for a period of at least 20 consecutive trading days by giving notice to the holders thereof and, in such case, the Warrants will expire at 4 p.m. (Calgary time) on the date which is the earlier of: (i) the 30th day after the date on which such notice is given by the Resulting Issuer in accordance with the terms of the Warrants; and (ii) the actual expiry date of the Warrants.

Closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about July 30, 2015 (the "Closing Date"), or such other date as may be determined between the Corporation and Beacon, on behalf of the Agents, and is subject to customary conditions and regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX-V.
