NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES
ZipLocal Inc. ("ZipLocal" or the "Company") (NEX:ZIP.H) announced today that it has entered into a lock-up and support agreement (the "Support Agreement") with Intercap Inc. ("Intercap"), a corporation incorporated under the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) and certain holders (the "Holders") of unsecured convertible debentures of the Company (the "Convertible Debentures"). Pursuant to the Support Agreement, and subject to the terms and conditions thereof, Intercap has agreed to make an offer to acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company (the "Common Shares") at a price of $0.0035 per share (the "Offer") on a post-Consolidation (as defined herein) basis, and the Holders that are parties to the Support Agreement (the "Supporting Holders") have agreed to tender the Common Shares held by such Supporting Holders to the Offer (including those Common Shares issuable pursuant to the Debt Conversion (as defined herein)).
Pursuant to the terms of the Support Agreement, the Company shall, subject to shareholder approval, consolidate its outstanding Common Shares on the basis of one new post-consolidation Common Share for every ten pre-consolidation Common Shares (the "Consolidation"), and thereafter convert the Convertible Debentures in the principal amount of $1,010,000 plus all accrued interest owing thereunder into Common Shares at a conversion price of $0.10 per share (on a post-Consolidation basis) in respect of the principal amount and at a conversion price of $0.05 per share (on a post-Consolidation basis) in respect of the accrued interest, all in accordance with the terms of the Convertible Debentures (the "Debt Conversion"). Following the Consolidation and the Debt Conversion, there will be approximately 27,857,862 Common Shares issued and outstanding.
Further details regarding the Consolidation and the Debt Conversion are provided in a management information circular (the "Circular") which has been mailed to holders of the Common Shares in connection with the special meeting of the shareholders of the Company to approve the Consolidation (the "Meeting") to be held on April 13, 2017.
Intercap's obligation to make the Offer is conditional upon, among other things, the completion of the Consolidation and the Debt Conversion and Holders holding not less than eighty percent of the principal amount of the Convertible Debentures becoming a party to the Support Agreement. The Offer, if made, will be described in greater detail in a take-over bid circular (the "Take-Over Bid Circular") to be prepared and delivered to shareholders of the Company by Intercap, and in a directors' circular prepared and delivered to shareholders by the board of directors of the Company in response to the Take-Over Bid Circular.
