NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE U.S.
Times Three Wireless Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TTW) ("Times Three" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has completed the closing of it's previously announced brokered private placement financing (the "Brokered Financing"). Pursuant to the Brokered Financing, the Company issued an aggregate of 8,496,000 units ("Units") at an issue price of $0.09 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $764,640. Each Unit is comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company ("Common Share") and one warrant ("Warrant"), each Warrant entitling the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at any time on or before 24 months from the date of issuance at an exercise price of $0.13 per Common Share. Paradigm Capital Inc. (the "Agent") acted as sole agent in respect of the Brokered Financing.
As consideration for its services pursuant to the Brokered Financing, the Agent received a cash commission equal to 7% of the total proceeds of the Brokered Financing and 679,680 non-transferable broker warrants ("Broker Warrants"). Each Broker Warrant entitles the Agent to acquire, at any time on or before 24 months from the date of issuance, one Unit at an exercise price of $0.10 per Unit.
Additionally, the Company has closed a non-brokered private placement (the "Non-Brokered Financing") of 7,517,889 Units at an issue price of $0.09 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $676,610. The combined total aggregate gross proceeds of the Brokered and Non-Brokered Financings are therefore $1,441,250.
The Common Shares and Warrants issuable as part of the Units and upon exercise of the Broker Warrants and the Common Shares issuable on exercise of the Warrants, are subject to a 4 month hold period from the date of closing.
The net proceeds raised under the Brokered and Non-Brokered Financings will be used for the ongoing evaluation and development of the Company's existing patent portfolio and potential patent acquisition opportunities, to investigate and pursue potential strategic partnerships and for general corporate purposes.
"We are very pleased to have been able to complete two financings for total gross proceeds of just under $3M in less than 3 months", said William Middleton, CEO of Times Three, "We will now continue to develop and implement our technology and IP licensing programs".
