TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 14, 2014) -
NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR THROUGH UNITED STATES NEWSWIRES
Quantum International Income Corp. (formerly E.G. Capital Inc.) ("Quantum" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:QIC.H) is pleased to announce that effective March 13, 2014, the Company has changed its name from "E.G. Capital Inc." to "Quantum International Income Corp." In addition, effective the same day, the common shares of the Company were consolidated on a 1 for 10 basis.
Quantum is also pleased to announce that it has increased the size of its previously-announced non-brokered private placement financing, originally proposed to raise aggregate gross proceeds of up to $200,000 (the "Private Placement"). The Company now plans to issue units ("Units") comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company ("Unit Shares") and one common share purchase warrant ("Warrants") at a price of $0.05 per Unit and subscription receipts ("Subscription Receipts") at a deemed price of $0.05 per Subscription Receipt to raise aggregate gross proceeds in cash and non-cash consideration of up to $1,160,000 under the Private Placement. In consideration for the issuance of the Subscription Receipts, the Company has determined to accept non-cash consideration in the form of common shares of Portex Minerals Inc. ("Portex"), a corporation existing under the laws of Ontario, at a deemed value of $0.05 per Portex common share. Portex operates at arm's length to the Company. Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.10 per common share for a period of 12 months after the date of the issue of the Warrants.
Each Subscription Receipt will entitle the holder thereof, upon the making of a payment in cash (the "Subsequent Cash Payment") within 30 days of the issuance of the Subscription Receipts to convert all but not less than all the Subscription Receipts held by such holder into Units on the basis of one Unit for every Subscription Receipt. The aggregate amount required to be paid to the Company by the holder of Subscription Receipts shall be equal to $0.05 per Unit issuable thereunder. Under the terms of the Subscription Receipts, in such event the Company will be required to return the Portex common shares then held by the Company back to such holder. In the event a holder of Subscription Receipts does not make the appropriate cash payment within 30 days of the issuance of the Subscription Receipts, such Subscription Receipts expire and will be of no further value, with no Units to be issuable upon such expiry and the Company will be entitled to retain the applicable Portex common shares outright, for no additional consideration.
The Unit Shares, Warrants and Subscription Receipts issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to a four month hold period in Canada. Completion of the Private Placement is subject to standard closing conditions, including the approval of the NEX board of TSX Venture Exchange Inc. (the "TSXV").
Quantum International Income Corp. intends to seek opportunities to acquire and grow businesses in order to generate stable distributions for its shareholders, as well as to achieve overall capital appreciation. The Company will seek to acquire operating businesses with a proven track record, an opportunity for growth and whose management wishes to continue to operate the business going forward.
The Company's investment approach will be to grow through the acquisition of "platform" businesses that are consistent with its business strategy and acquisition criteria and then to continue to build revenues and earnings within these businesses. Potential acquisition targets may be private or public companies in a variety of industries, thereby allowing for diversification. Acquisition of all or a majority of the ownership of each such business is preferred. Value will be created by seeking out high growth, high margin opportunities where the acquired businesses can maintain and develop the deep knowledge, expertise and understanding of their customers' needs required to deliver superior service and command higher pricing and margins than the competition.
