Simavita Announces Up to A$2.93 Million Financing Program

A$1.5 million Placement and 1 for 7 Non-Renounceable Rights Issue

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwired - May 3, 2017) - Simavita Limited (Simavita or the Company) (ASX:SVA) today announced a financing program of up to A$2.93 million split between a Placement to institutional and sophisticated investors for A$1.5million together with a Non-Renounceable Rights Issue of 1 new CDI for 7 existing CDI's held by holders which may raise up to a further A$1.43 million.

Commitments have now been received for a placement to raise A$1.5 million before expenses via a placement to institutional and sophisticated investors (Placement). The Placement represents the maximum capacity allowable under ASX Listing Rule 7.1.

As a result of excess demand from interested investors in the Placement, the Company also announced a partially underwritten 1 for 7 Non-Renounceable Rights Issue to raise up to approximately A$1.43 million (Entitlement Offer). This facility will enable all Simavita CDI holders to participate in the financing program.

Lodge Partners acted as Lead Manager, whilst Lodge Corporate Pty Ltd is acting as Underwriter to the Entitlement Offer. The Entitlement Offer is partially underwritten to an amount of A$700,000.

The funds from the Placement and Entitlement Offer will be used for working capital to achieve the Company's key objectives. In particular, Simavita will focus upon delivering its strategy of cheap, easy to use, continence sensor technology, particularly to mass markets in key geographies. Simavita will similarly aim to enter into partnership arrangements with large manufacturing firms to deliver this technology to market. The Company will continue to actively manage its cost structure and will reduce operating costs where possible.

Details of Placement

Pursuant to the terms of the Placement, the Company has agreed to issue 37,500,000 new CDIs in the Company at an issue price of A$0.04 per CDI to raise A$1.5m before costs. The CDIs will be placed to institutional and sophisticated investors. Settlement of the Placement will occur on 5 May 2017 and CDIs will be issued on 8 May 2017. CDI holder approval is not required as the Placement comes within the Company's existing capacity pursuant to ASX listing rule 7.1. All CDIs issued under the Placement will rank the same as existing CDIs on issue.

Entitlement Offer

In conjunction with the Placement, the Company has resolved to undertake an Entitlement Offer to eligible CDI holders to participate at the same price as the Placement. Existing CDI holders that have a registered address in Australia and New Zealand which are on the register as at the Record Date of 7.00 pm (Sydney time) on 8 May 2017 (Record Date) will be eligible to participate in the Entitlement Offer. The Entitlement Offer will allow eligible CDI holders to subscribe for 1 new CDI for every 7 CDIs held at the Record Date. If eligible CDI holders do not accept their full entitlement pursuant to the Entitlement Offer, there will be a shortfall under the Entitlement Offer. The shortfall will be placed pursuant to the terms of the Entitlement Offer booklet. Further information in relation to the Entitlement Offer, including the terms and conditions, are outlined in the Entitlement Offer booklet lodged with ASX today and which will be dispatched to eligible CDI holders on or around 11 May 2017.
