Spiral Toys Announces $1.175 Million Private Financing

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 12, 2016) - Spiral Toys, Inc. (OTCQB: STOY), a leading provider of mobile-connected, wireless entertainment technology, has entered into a definitive agreement with institutional investors for a private offering of convertible debentures with gross proceeds of $1.175 million in two closings.

At the first closing, Spiral Toys will sell convertible debentures in the principal amount of $756,250 for a purchase price of $625,000. At a second closing, to occur after the company's resale registration statement for shares underlying the debentures is declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the company will sell convertible debentures in the principal amount of $594,000 for a purchase price of $550,000. The debentures mature one year from their dates of issuance and bear interest at 10% per annum, payable in cash or stock, subject to a make-whole payment if converted or redeemed prior to maturity. The holder may convert the debentures into shares of the company's common stock -- initially at $0.50 per share, then at $0.35 per share after the registration statement is declared effective. Commencing on the four month anniversary of the issuance of the debentures, the company will be required to repay 1/8th of the principal amount of the debentures in cash or stock. If in stock, such principal amount then owing will be converted at a discount of 30% (40% if the resale registration statement is not then effective) to the lowest volume weighted average price of the common stock during the 15 days prior to redemption. Spiral Toys can redeem the debentures upon payment of a premium, subject to customary equity conditions. The first closing is expected to occur on or about April 12, 2016, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

Further details of the offering will be available in the company's Form 8-K to be filed with the SEC by the company and all of the transaction documents will be attached to the Form 8-K.
