Montréal, QC – Siyata Mobile Inc. (TSX-V:SIM | OTCQX: SYATF) (the “Company” or “Siyata”) is pleased to announce it has entered into an agreement with a reporting insider of the Company in connection with a non-brokered private placement financing (the “Offering”) pursuant to which the insider has agreed to subscribe for up to 1,400 senior unsecured convertible debentures (the “Convertible Debentures”) at an issue price of CDN$1,000 per Convertible Debenture for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately USD$1,000,000.
Each Convertible Debenture will be convertible, at the option of the holder, into 3,333 common shares in the capital of the Company (the “Common Shares” and each, a “Common Share”) at a price of CDN$0.30 (the “Conversion Price”) per Common Share, subject to adjustment in certain events.
Each Convertible Debenture will bear interest at a rate of 10.0% per annum from the date of issue, payable in cash quarterly in arrears. Any unpaid interest payments will accrue and be added to the principal amount of the Convertible Debenture.
The Convertible Debentures will mature twelve (12) months (the “Maturity Date”) after the date of issuance and are redeemable at 101% of the face value at any time after the closing date.
On the closing date, Accel will also receive one (1) non-transferrable common share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant”) for each CDN$1.00 principal amount of the Convertible Debentures purchased. Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one Common Share (each, a “Warrant Share”) at an exercise price of CDN$0.30 per Warrant Share for a period of twelve (12) months after the date of issue.
The Offering will be considered a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”). Pursuant to Section 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, the Company is exempt from obtaining a formal valuation and minority approval of the Company’s shareholders in respect of the Offering due to the fair market value of the related party’s participation in the Offering being below 25% of the Company’s market capitalization for purposes of MI 61-101.
The Company has also entered into an agreement with an existing arm’s-length debenture holder to amend the terms of its outstanding convertible debentures due June 28, 2020 (the “Existing Debentures”) on equivalent terms as the Offering (the “Amendment”) in the amount of CDN$250,000. Before the closing of the above financing and amendment, there remains ~$1.3M CDN outstanding to convertible debenture holders due June 28, 2020.
No finders fees are being paid in conjunction with this offering.
Marc Seelenfreund, CEO and Chairman of Siyata, commented, “We are very pleased to see insider participation to support our future growth at terms we believe are very favourable for our shareholders and the Company. As announced, the Company will file its 2019 year end and Q1 2020 results next week followed by a conference call for investors in which I look forward to giving the market an update on our portfolio of products, our operations and sales opportunity funnel.”
The Offering and the participation of the holder of the Existing Debentures pursuant to the Amendment remains subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The securities issued on conversion of the Convertible Debentures and Warrants will be subject to a statutory hold period of four (4) months and one (1) day. Net proceeds of the Offering will be used to fund general working capital and a portion may be used to pay down any Existing Debentures that are not amended pursuant to the Amendment.
