TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 31, 2014) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES. ANY FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS RESTRICTION MAY CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF U.S. SECURITIES LAWS.

Midpoint Holdings Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:MPT) is pleased to announce that it has closed the first tranche of a private placement of units ("Unit") at a price of $0.10 per Unit (the "Offering"). Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company (a "Common Share") and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one additional Common Share for a period of twenty four (24) months from the closing date at a price of CDN $0.20 per Common Share.

The first tranche of the Offering was completed on December 31, 2014 and consisted of the issuance by the Company of an aggregate of 3,475,430 Units for gross proceeds of $347,543. The Common Shares and the Warrants issued in connection with the completion of the first tranche of the Offering are subject to a hold period until May 1, 2015. The Company anticipates completing one or more additional tranches of the Offering early in 2015.

The first tranche of the Offering constituted a related party transaction within the meaning of TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101") as insiders of the Company subscribed for an aggregate of 1,200,000 Units. The Company is relying on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as the fair market value of the participation in the Offering by insiders does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101. The Company did not file a material change report in respect of the related party transaction at least 21 days before the closing of the first tranche of the private placement, which the Company deems reasonable in the circumstances so as to be able to avail itself of potential financing opportunities and complete the Offering in an expeditious manner.
