DraftTeam Daily Fantasy Sports Corp. Announces Private Placement in Connection With the Merger With Fantasy Aces, LLC

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - June 12, 2015) -


DraftTeam Daily Fantasy Sports Corp. (the "Corporation" or "DraftTeam") (TSX VENTURE:DTS) is pleased to announce that is has engaged Beacon Securities Limited ("Beacon") to act as lead agent, together with Industrial Alliance Securities Inc, and Salman Partners Inc. (the "Agents"), to offer for sale, on a reasonable "best-efforts" agency basis, subscription receipts (the "Subscription Receipts") of the Company at an issue price to be determined in the context of the market for a minimum of $5,000,000 gross proceeds to the Corporation (the "Offering"). Additionally, the Corporation has granted Beacon an option to increase the Offering on the same terms, at any time up to 48 hours prior the closing of the Offering, by up to 15% of the number of minimum Subscription Receipts issuable pursuant to the Offering for additional aggregate gross proceeds to the Corporation of up to $750,000. If Beacon elects to exercise such right to increase the Offering in full, the aggregate gross proceeds that may be raised under the Offering is $5,750,000. The Offering will be conducted concurrently and in connection with the Corporation's previously announced merger between the Corporation and Fantasy Aces, LLC ("Fantasy Aces") (the "Merger").

Each Subscription Receipt will entitle the holder thereof to receive, without payment of additional consideration, one common share of the resulting issuer (the "Resulting Issuer") from and upon completion of the Merger. The gross proceeds from the sale of the Subscription Receipts, less the Agents' reasonable out-of-pocket expenses for the Offering, will be held by an escrow agent and invested in short term obligations issued or guaranteed by the Government of Canada (or other approved investments) pending satisfactory completion of all conditions to the Merger (other than the funding of the purchase price). Upon completion of such conditions, the escrowed funds will be released to the Corporation. If the closing of the Merger does not occur, on or before 10:00 a.m. (Calgary time) on that date that is 90 days following the Closing Date (as defined below), or if prior to that time, the Merger is terminated or the Corporation has advised the Agents or announced to the public that it does not intend to proceed with the Merger, the escrow agent will return to the holders of Subscription Receipts an amount equal to the offering price as well as their pro rata entitlements to interest earned on such amount.

The net proceeds from the Offering will be used to help allow the combined company to accelerate its business plan in the fast growing Daily Fantasy Sports industry and with this additional capital expects to have an even greater presence in the DFS industry. Closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about July 21, 2015 (the "Closing Date"), or such other date as may be determined between the Corporation and Beacon, and is subject to customary conditions and regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX-V.
