TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 16, 2021--

Advantex Marketing International Inc. (CSE: ADX) (“ Advantex ”), a leader in the merchant cash advance and loyalty marketing products for merchants, today announced the completion of the financing by way of senior secured non-convertible debentures previously announced on February 25, 2021. The Financing was conducted in accordance with the terms of the partial revocation order issued by the Ontario Securities Commission on February 25, 2021, partially revoking the failure-to-file cease trade order issued against Advantex on November 1, 2019 (the “ FFCTO ”).

Advantex issued $250,000 worth of senior secured non-convertible debentures (the “ Financing ”) which bear an interest rate at 9% per annum and are maturing on December 31, 2025 (the “ New Debentures ”). The New Debentures are on the same terms and rank pari passu with the existing senior secured non-convertible debentures (“ Existing Debentures ”) bearing interest at 9% per annum. The holders of the Existing Debentures have also agreed to extend the Maturity Date of the Existing Debentures from December 31, 2021 to December 31, 2025.

The proceeds of the Financing will be used to pay for: (i) the preparation and filing of the outstanding continuous disclosure documents and late filing fees with the applicable regulatory authorities; (ii) legal expenses incurred in connection with the Partial Revocation Order, the revocation of the FFCTO and the Financing; (iii) operational and general administrative expenses; (iv) payment of accounts payable incurred in the ordinary course of business; and (v) partial funding of its Merchant Cash Advance business as public health restrictions are gradually eased in Canada. Once those filings have been completed, Advantex will apply for a full revocation of the FFCTO.
