Siyata Mobile Inc. (the "Company" or "Siyata") (TSX VENTURE: SIM) (OTC PINK: SIMFF) is pleased to announce that it has closed a brokered private placement (the "Offering") for gross proceeds of CAD$5.134 million, through a syndicate of investment dealers led by Paradigm Capital Inc. (the "Lead Agent") and including PI Financial Corp. and Haywood Securities Inc. (together with the Lead Agent, the "Agents"), previously announced on February 27, 2017.
As a result of the financing, the Company has CAD$9M in available working capital, positioning the Company to be well-capitalized as it expands its sales and reach into North America.
The Company issued 12,835,000 units pursuant to the Offering. Each unit is compromised of one common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant is exercisable to acquire one common share of the Company at an exercise price of CAD$0.50 per share until March 16, 2019, subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments. The Company has the option to accelerate the expiry of the warrants, upon providing notice to warrant holders and issuing a press release, if its common shares close at CAD$0.70 or greater on the TSXV for 10 consecutive trading days. The securities issued in connection with the Offering are subject to a customary four month hold period expiring July 17, 2017.
In consideration of the services rendered by the Agents in connection with the Offering, the Company paid the Agents a cash fee equal to 8.0% of the aggregate gross proceeds of the Offering and issued to the Agents and selling group members broker warrants equal to 8% of the number of the Units issued pursuant to the Offering (the "Broker Warrants"). Each Broker Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the Company at $0.40 per common share for a period for 24 months following the closing date. As additional consideration, certain of the Agents were issued an aggregate of 100,000 units of the Corporation on the closing date, having terms identical to the units issued to subscribers.
The net proceeds of the Offering will be used by the Company to fund its future growth in the North American market and for working capital purposes.
