Versatile Completes Convertible Loan

MECHANICSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA--(Marketwired - Jan. 16, 2014) - Versatile Systems Inc. (TSX VENTURE:VV) ("Versatile" or the "Company") today announced that, further to its news release of December 23, 2013, it has completed the previously announced convertible loan with Bertrand des Pallieres and SPQR Capital Holdings SA (the "Convertible Loan").

Mr. des Pallieres, a director and significant shareholder of the Company, and SPQR Capital Holdings SA, a corporation controlled by Mr. des Pallieres, (together, the "Lenders") have loaned the Company an aggregate of $648,820 in the form of the Convertible Loan, bearing an interest rate of 14% per annum and due two years from the date of advance. The principal of the Convertible Loan is convertible at the option of the Lenders into common shares of the Company at a conversion price as follows: (a) if the Company's previously announced 10 for 1 consolidation (the "Consolidation") has not been completed, at a conversion price of $0.05 per share until the first anniversary of closing and $0.10 per share thereafter; and (b) following completion of the Consolidation at a conversion price of $0.35 per share (equal to $0.035 per share pre-Consolidation). The variable conversion price is necessary to comply with the $0.05 minimum price rules of TSX Venture Exchange. If the Consolidation is completed and all of the principal of the Convertible Loan is converted, the Company will be required to issue the equivalent of 18,537,714 pre-Consolidation common shares to the Lenders. The Convertible Loan is secured by a general security agreement under which the Company has granted the Lenders a security interest over the assets of the Company. The Convertible Loan and any common shares issued upon the conversion of the Convertible Loan, will be subject to a 4-month hold period from the date of the Convertible Loan.
