Redline Receives $12M From Warrant Conversion
Non-Dilutive Financing Will Help Fuel Growth
TORONTO, Jan. 8, 2013 /CNW/ - Redline Communications (www.rdlcom.com) Group Inc. (TSX: RDL - "Redline" or the "Company"), a leading provider of specialized broadband wireless solutions, announced today that it has now received an aggregate of approximately $11.96 million in consideration from the exercise of warrants issued as part of the Company's private placement announced in April 2011. This amount includes the amount received in the announcement on November 12, 2012, and the aggregate number of shares issued as a result of all warrants exercised (including those announced on November 12, 2012) is 3,241,204 common shares of the Company.
"Securing $12M of additional cash will allow us to accelerate our already impressive growth in the energy market, especially for larger system sales," said Eric Melka, Redline CEO.
These warrants represent some of the "First Warrants" and "Second Warrants" issued as part of the Company's private placement announced in April 2011. The exercise price was $2.30 per share in the case of the First Warrants and $4.60 per share in the case of the Second Warrants. There are 325,373 Second Warrants still to be exercised. These Second Warrants represent total expected proceeds of $1,496,713 and they must be exercised by January 28, 2013 or they will expire on that date. While the Company has no reason to believe that these above referenced warrants will not be exercised, until Redline receives the exercise forms and associated payments, there can be no assurance that they will. The company will provide additional information in due course. There are also 937,500 First Warrants representing total expected proceeds of $2,156,250 still outstanding. The expiry date on these First Warrants is June 10, 2014.
The warrants have previously been reported in the Company's financial statements and management discussion and analysis and as a result, the total potential diluted common shares outstanding have not changed as a result of this warrant exercise.
