“We are pleased to provide this investment to repay Siyata’s debt, especially when the company is at such an exciting inflection point. The company has a promising product portfolio in a multi-billion-dollar emerging market and has partnered with major U.S. and international cellular carriers as distribution partners. We are hopeful that this will lead to strong growth for the company going forward,” said Phillip Valliere, Managing Director at The Lind Partners.
The investment is in the form of a US$7,200,000 convertible note with a 24-month maturity, 0% annual interest rate and is convertible into Company’s common shares at a fixed conversion price of US$10.00 (“Note”).
