Vancouver, BC – Tribe Property Technologies (TSXV: TRBE) (OTCQB: TRPTF) (“Tribe” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Stifel GMP as sole bookrunner and together with Cormark Securities Inc. as co-lead agents and on behalf of a syndicate of agents (collectively, the “Agents”), in connection with a proposed marketed offering of units of the Company (the “Units”) for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of up to $15 million at a price of $4.00 per Unit (the “Offering”). Round13 Growth Fund (“Round13”), a highly respected, late-stage growth equity investment fund, part of the Round13 Capital family of funds, will lead the financing and subscribe for $10 million worth of Units.
“We are delighted to partner with Tribe’s exceptional management team and help realize on Tribe’s vision to digitize the property management industry,” said Sanjiv Samant, Managing Partner of Round13 Capital. “We are excited to support the acceleration of Tribe’s robust product roadmap of property management technology tools as well as the Company’s plan to bring its products to new markets via M&A.”
Round13 Growth Fund invests in growth companies where there is an opportunity for technology enablement. Key to the fund’s mandate is helping bridge the late-stage growth funding gap in Canada between traditional venture capital and public market investors.
“We are pleased to be adding Round13 as a strategic shareholder. To receive the support of one of Canada’s leading value-added growth funds provides clear validation of our business model. After a very successful 2021, Tribe delivered on significant growth objectives, completing and integrating four acquisitions, creating a national footprint, all while achieving substantive revenue growth,” said Joseph Nakhla, CEO of Tribe. “This financing allows Tribe to pursue further M&A opportunities and continue to build on its national footprint, all while advancing the deployment of our new products and services to the growing condo and rental markets.”
In connection with Round13’s participation in the Offering and subject to regulatory and corporate law requirements, Round13 will be provided with certain rights, including: (i) right to nominate one director to the board of the Company at the Company’s next annual general or special meeting of its shareholders; and (ii) right to recommend a qualified independent director to the board of the Company at the Company’s next annual general or special meeting of its shareholders.
Each Unit will consist of one common share (each, a “Common Share”) and one common share purchase warrant (“Warrant”) of the Company. Each Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to acquire one common share in the capital of the Company (each, a “Warrant Share”) at a price of $5.10 per Warrant Share, until the date which is 36 months following the closing of the Offering, subject to adjustment in certain events.
The Company has agreed to grant the Agents an option to increase the size of the Offering by up to an additional 15% of the Units sold under the Offering, exercisable in whole or in part, at any time and from time to time up to 48 hours prior to the closing of the Offering.
The net proceeds of the Offering will be used to execute on the Company’s acquisition pipeline, and for working capital and general corporate purposes.
Closing of the Offering is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory and other approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”). All securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus a day and TSXV hold period, as applicable.
