MOBI724 Closes a First Tranche of $1M Private Placement and Announces Secured Revolving Credit Facility of $0.5M

January 16, 2019

MONTREAL, Jan. 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MOBI724 Global Solutions Inc. (“MOBI724” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:MOS) (OTCQB:MOBIF), a global Fintech company offering a fully integrated suite of multiple Card-Linked Offers and Rewards (“CLO&R”), Digital Marketing and Business Intelligence (“DMBI”) and Payment Solutions (“Payment”) is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed its first tranche of a non-brokered private placement financing (the “Offering”) for aggregate gross proceeds of $1 million.

The Offering consisted of the sale of 7,692,307 common shares (“Shares”) at a price of $0.065 and the issuance of a non-secured debenture (“Debenture”) in the capital amount of $0.5 million. The Debenture matures 24 months following its issuance, bears interest at a rate of 12% per annum payable semi-annually and is convertible at a price of $0.15 per Share.

The Offering was sold pursuant to exemptions from prospectus requirements. The securities issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day and completion of the Offering remains subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The Company has also entered into a letter of intent with a private financing group for a secured revolving credit facility (“Credit Facility”) in an amount up to $0.5M. The Credit facility, which bears interest at a rate of 13% per annum is subject to adjustments as the Bank of Canada increases its prime rate and will be used to finance the Company’s eligible receivables. The Credit Facility is secured by a 1st ranking hypothec on the accounts receivables. The Credit Facility is conditional upon receipt of final approval from the Company’s existing creditors, due diligence review, final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and other customary conditions. Completion of the Financing will be finalized over the course of the coming weeks as approvals are obtained. Net proceeds raised from the aforementioned transactions will be used to finance ongoing obligations of the Company and general working capital.

“This $1 million private placement, which we have been working on since early November, places the Company in a position to accelerate the execution of its business plan. We are very happy to work with our long-term investor and supporter. We anticipate closing the $0.5M Credit Facility in the coming weeks and we are also pleased with this non dilutive financing” stated Marcel Vienneau CEO of MOBI724.

Bernard Pouliot, the principal of BF Belmont, stated: “We have participated in multiple financing rounds since 2014, and this demonstrate our continued confidence in the company’s vision and business plan.”

CEO Marcel Vienneau stated: “On behalf of the Company, I would like to thank Jorge Sierra for having completed his mandate as CSO and wish him all the best in his continued retirement from Scotia Bank”. The Company has taken the steps to institute a search to find a full time CSO and in the meantime Marcel Vienneau, CEO will act as interim CSO.
