Urban Communications Inc. Announces Convertible Debenture Private Placement to Replace Secured Debt

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - March 13, 2015) - Urban Communications Inc. (TSX VENTURE: UBN) announces that it has raised convertible debenture private placement financing carrying interest at 8% per annum to replace existing secured debt of approximately $199,000 carrying interest at 12% per annum.

The debenture is convertible into units of the Company at a price of $0.11 per unit until May 31, 2017. Each unit consists of one common share and one share purchase warrant, and each warrant is exercisable until May 31, 2017, to purchase one common share at $0.20. The debenture will carry a term expiring May 31, 2017, and proceeds will be secured by the Company's assets. The debenture will rank pari passu with existing secured debt and with convertible debentures issued in 2014 which together have an aggregate principal amount outstanding of approximately $3,100,000, which with the new convertible debenture will have first priority against the Company's assets. Outstanding debt may be repaid after 6 months and thereafter upon 30 days notice. Any accrued but unpaid interest is payable semi-annually until the earlier of the maturity date or the date of conversion into units.

There are no finder's fees payable in connection with the convertible debenture private placement.
