Nightingale Announces Note Offering
MARKHAM, ON, Aug. 18, 2014 /CNW/ - Nightingale Informatix Corporation (TSXV: NGH) ("Nightingale" or the "Corporation") announced it has completed a non-brokered private placement of a secured note (the "Note") in the principal amount of $1,500,000. The Note was purchased by 1604697 Ontario Inc. (the "Lender"), a company controlled by a party related to a director of the Corporation.
The Note will become payable on the date (the "Maturity Date") that is the earlier of: (i) August 18, 2015; (ii) the date that Nightingale enters into a loan agreement with either the Lender or a third party regarding a loan in the minimum amount of $1,500,000; and (iii) the date Nightingale completes an equity financing resulting in net proceeds to Nightingale of at least $1,500,000. The Note bears interest at a fixed rate of 11% per annum, calculated and payable monthly in arrears on the last day of each month, starting on August 31, 2014. The Note is secured by all of the Corporation's present and subsequently acquired property and assets and shall be subordinated to certain defined senior indebtedness. In connection with the Note, the Lender has also received a commitment fee in the amount of $45,000. The proceeds of the Note are intended to be used by the Corporation for general corporate purposes.
The issuance of the Note constitutes a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101") and Policy 5.9 of the TSXV Corporate Finance Manual, because the Lender is a company controlled by a party related to a director of the Corporation. Accordingly, prior to signing the Note, the Board of Directors of the Corporation, excluding the director related to the party controlling the Lender, approved the issuance of the Note. MI 61-101 requires a formal valuation and minority shareholder approval for a related party transaction unless an exemption is available. An exemption from the valuation requirement is available to the Corporation, as no securities of the Corporation are listed on a specified exchange and an exemption from the minority shareholder approval requirement is available as the Note is on commercial terms and is not convertible into or repayable in securities of the Corporation. The Corporation expects to release a material change report including details with respect to the related party transaction less than 21 days prior to the issuance of the Note, which the Corporation deemed reasonable in the circumstances so as to be able to avail itself of the financing opportunity and complete the Note offering in an expeditious manner.
