("MOBI724" or the "Company") (CSE:MOS)(CSE:MOS.CN), a Fintech leader offering all in one fully integrated EMV payment, card link couponing and digital marketing is pleased to announce that on October 5, 2016, it has successfully closed a first tranche equity private placement in the aggregate amount of $250,000.00 dollars by issuing 5,000,000 common shares ("Shares") at $0.05. The private placement included a conversion of bona fide debt in the amount of $25,344.51. For each common share received, the subscribers were issued one common share purchase warrant at an exercise price of $0.15 exercisable on or before August 31st, 2018 after which they shall expire.
The Company has also closed a secured convertible debenture ("Convertible Debenture") private placement in the amount of $500,000.00. The Convertible Debenture will (i) mature on March 30, 2018 (the "Maturity Date"), (ii) bear interest at a rate of 8 % per annum, (iii) be convertible at the option of the holder into common shares of the Company (the "Shares") on or prior to the expiry of the Term at a price of $0.15 (the "Conversion Price") and (iv) be secured by the receivables of the Company limited to 20% of the gross revenues. Payments shall be effected every 6 months and shall be limited to 10% of the gross revenues collected and the holder shall have the option to be paid in cash or convert into Shares at the Conversion Price. The Company has the option to redeem the Convertible Debentures at any time prior to the expiry of the Term without penalty. Due to pari passu provisions in an existing and outstanding debenture recently issued to an institutional investor, the Company is also granting the same security in favour of the existing debenture holder.
The Shares and Convertible Debenture were sold pursuant to exemptions from prospectus requirements to purchasers in Canada and are subject to a hold period of four months and one day following the closing of the private placement. The Shares are listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE). The Company will use the net proceeds to support project deployments of the Company's solution, for ongoing obligations and for working capital requirements. Since August 31, 2016, the Company has raised $ 2.25 million dollars and is currently working on closing another tranche of funding this month as previously announced.
