SAINT JOHN, NEW BRUNSWICK--(Marketwired - Oct. 21, 2016) - Stompy Bot Corporation (the "Corporation") (CSE:BOT) announces that, further to its press release dated August 15, 2016, it has completed the second and final tranche of its previously announced non-brokered private placement private of up to $200,000 in principal amount of secured convertible debentures (the "Debentures") at a price of $1,000 and integral multiples thereof per debenture (the "Offering"), with each $1,000 Debenture consisting of 8,000 common share purchase warrants (the "Warrants"). Each Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to acquire one (1) common share in the capital of the Corporation at a price of $0.05 per common share (the "Warrant Shares") for two (2) years from the date of issue. The Debentures will have an interest rate of 12% per year, calculated semi-annually from their date of issuance and will mature on the date that is one (1) year from the date of issuance. At the option of the holder, principal under the Debenture is convertible (the "Conversion") into common shares of the Corporation (the "Conversion Shares") at a conversion price of $0.05 per Conversion Share. In connection with the second and final tranche, the Company has issued 115 Debentures and 920,000 Warrants of the Company for total aggregate proceeds of $115,000. Proceeds of the Offering will be used to fund the development and marketing of the Corporation's video games, and for general working capital purposes.
The Corporation also announces that it has settled an additional $35,409.44 of debt through the issuance of 708,188 common shares of the Company at a price of $0.05 per common share with arms-length and non-arm's length creditors (the "Debt Settlement").
The Debentures, Warrants, Conversion Shares, Warrant Shares and common shares issued in connection with the Debt Settlement are subject to a statutory four month and one day hold period.
The Offering and Debt Settlement constituted a related party transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101") as insiders of the Company subscribed for an aggregate of 60 Debentures and 480,000 Warrants, and acquired, directly and indirectly, an aggregate of 336,128 common shares pursuant to the Debt Settlement. The Company is relying on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as the fair market value of the participation in the Offering by the insiders does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101. The Company did not file a material change report in respect of the related party transaction at least 21 days before the closing of the second and final tranche of the private placement, which the Company deems reasonable in the circumstances in order to avail itself of the proceeds of the private placement and complete the Offering in an expeditious manner.
