Keek Enters Into Loan Agreement and Provides Update on Other Matters

NEW YORK, NY and TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - October 28, 2014) - Keek Inc. (TSX VENTURE: KEK) (OTCQX: KEEKF) (Keek or the Company) announced today that the Board of Directors has authorized the Company to seek financing through the issuance of secured notes of up to $5 million (collectively, the Notes). The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Notes for general working capital purposes.

The Notes will bear interest at a rate of 12% per annum on the principal amount outstanding and will be repayable in twelve months from the date issued. The Notes will be secured by a General Security Agreement over all present and future assets and intangibles of the Company. In consideration for the Notes, the Company has agreed to issue an aggregate of up to 5 million common share purchase warrants (Warrants). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.10 per share at any time up to three years after the date of issue. The Warrants will be subject to a statutory four-month hold period.

Pinetree Capital Inc. (TSX: PNP) (Pinetree), a significant shareholder of the Company, has agreed to subscribe for $3 million of Notes. Sheldon Inwentash and Gerry Feldman, directors of the Company and management of Pinetree, abstained from voting in connection with the approval of the issuance of Notes to Pinetree. The initial closing of Notes to Pinetree is expected to occur on October 31, 2014, with one or more additional closing to be held in November. The issuance of the Notes is subject to execution of loan and security documents and receipt of approval from the TSX Venture Exchange. The purchase of Notes by Pinetree is a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101, however it is exempt from the minority shareholder approval requirements as the commercial terms are not less advantageous to the issuer than if the loan was obtained from an arm's length party and the Notes are not convertible into equity of the Company.

The Board of Directors of Keek also approved fixing November 10, 2014, as the record date for a special meeting of the Keek shareholders proposed to be held on December 16, 2014, to consider a consolidation of the common shares and a routine amendment to the Company's stock option plan. The information circular which will contain complete details regarding the proposed consolidation and is expected to be completed and mailed on or about November 12, 2014.
