("Pantheon") (TSX VENTURE:PVX) is pleased to announce that it has completed its business combination (the "Transaction") with Moovly NV ("Moovly") consisting of the acquisition of all of the issued and outstanding shares of Moovly (the "Moovly Shares") in exchange for common shares of Pantheon, details of which are set forth in press releases dated December 7, 2015, April 11, 2016 and May 5, 2016.
Completion of the Transaction
As a condition to the completion of the Transaction, Pantheon completed a share consolidation on a 2 new for 3 old basis (the "Share Consolidation"), such that, immediately after completing the Share Consolidation, Pantheon had 17,004,700 Pantheon common shares issued and outstanding and 15,705,555 common share purchase warrants outstanding to purchase Pantheon common shares. Concurrent with the completion of the Share Consolidation, Pantheon changed its name to "Moovly Media Inc." (the "Company").
Immediately after completing the Share Consolidation and the name change, the Company completed a non-brokered private placement of 14,850,000 post-Share Consolidation units (each, a "Unit") at a price of $0.15 per Unit for gross proceeds of $2,227,500. Each Unit is comprised of one post-Share Consolidation common share in the capital of the Company (a "Resulting Issuer Share") and one post-Share Consolidation common share purchase warrant (a "Resulting Issuer Warrant"). Each Resulting Issuer Warrant entitles the holder to purchase a Resulting Issuer Share at a price of $0.25 per share for a period of one year from the date of issuance. In connection with this private placement, the Company paid aggregate cash finder's fees of $12,184.95 to eligible finders who introduce subscribers to the private placement and issued 81,233 finder's fee warrants. Each finder's fee warrant entitles the holder to purchase a Resulting Issuer Share at a price of $0.25 per share for a period of one year from the date of issuance. All of the securities issued under the private placement are subject to a four month hold period.
The net proceeds of the private placement combined with other working capital provided the Company with approximately $2.3 million in available funds. These funds are being used to pay for the costs to complete the private placement and the Transaction, for sales and marketing, for the launch of technological advances to Moovly's platform and product offerings, for general and administrative expenses and for other working capital requirements.
After completing the private placement, the Company then completed the acquisition of all of the issued and outstanding Moovly Shares by issuing 9,476.43 Resulting Issuer Shares for each issued and outstanding Moovly Share, all in accordance with the terms of the definitive share purchase agreement dated December 3, 2015, as amended (the "Agreement"). As a result, an aggregate of 53,304,918 Resulting Issuer Shares were issued to the holders of the Moovly Shares. Further, after completing the acquisition of the Moovly Shares, Moovly's three unsecured convertible debentures in the aggregate principal amount of EUR300,994.49 were settled in full effectively by the issuance of 3,333,333 Units at a deemed price of $0.15 per Unit, with each Unit being comprised of one Resulting Issuer Share and one Resulting Issuer Warrant. All the securities issued to the former holders of the Moovly Shares and the debentures are subject to a four month hold period.
A finder's fee was payable in connection with the Transaction in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. The finder's fee was satisfied at closing by way of the issuance to Galloway Financial Services Inc. of 2,881,910 Resulting Issuer Shares at a deemed price of $0.15 per share. The Resulting Issuer Shares issued in satisfaction of the finder's fee are subject to a four month hold period.
After giving effect to the Transaction, the Company has 91,374,861 Resulting Issuer Shares issued and outstanding, 33,888,888 Resulting Issuer Shares are reserved for issuance upon the exercise of Resulting Issuer Warrants and 81,233 Resulting Issuer Shares are reserved for issuance upon the exercise of finder's fee warrants.
Of the Resulting Issuer Shares issued to former holders of Moovly Shares, an aggregate of 35,754,570 Resulting Issuer Shares were deposited in escrow in accordance with the terms of a Tier 2 value security escrow agreement with Computershare Trust Company of Canada acting as escrow agent. In addition, in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange, current directors and officers of the Company were required to deposit an aggregate of 1,027,402 Resulting Issuer Shares in escrow in accordance with the terms of a Tier 1 value security escrow agreement with Computershare Trust Company of Canada also acting as escrow agent.
